I thought I would take a look at how badly I am affected by Shiny Object Syndrome.
The answer seems to be very badly indeed.
Just taking a look at my JVZoo purchases screen alone tells me that I have purchased a total of 43 products!!
Most of these I have not even taken a look at and there are a few that I do not even know what they are.
Why do I and many other aspiring entrepreneurs behave like this?
I think the answer may lie in a sort of addiction I have seen depicted in TV programes but never thought affected me.
I am referring to folks who get a thrill out of the actual process of buying and then immediately lose interest once that buzz has passed.
Perhaps when an offer appears in front of my eyes I believe that this is the one. No more struggles and strife for me. Finally I have found the holy grail and my life is set for a steep upward curve of success.
Of course reality says that this is not the case, even if this was the golden ticket then leaving it sat on my hard-drive unopened will never change my circumstances.
Firstly I need to rid myself of this self destructive habit. Then I need to take a long hard look at my mindset than finally take stock of all that I have around me including the knowledge I have already gained over the years.
Then use all of this to make a sensible, achievable, step by step plan of action to move me forward.
My next few posts will be a mixture of sharing anything useful I discover with changing my mindset and what steps I am taking to get myself back on the right track.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
