Has it ever felt like the most successful people you know in life just have this strange ability to be in the right place at the right time when it comes to taking advantage of new opportunities?
For example, our guest today is my friend and mentor, Eben Pagan.
Eben is one of the most successful entrepreneurs I know, having built a $100,000,000 empire in the online education space.
Well just over a year ago, he sent me an email, asking me if I had put any time or thought into investing in cryptocurrencies.
I told him that I’d actually purchased Bitcoin back in 2014, and that I’d been researching and investing in that space ever since. So he emailed eight other successful entrepreneurs he knew, and asked them the same question.
Well it turns out every single one of them had also taken an interest, and invested in crypto over the previous one to two years, despite the fact that none of us had brought it up to anyone else in that group.
We had all seen the same opportunity. We had all come to the same conclusion about that opportunity, and we had all made a small fortune as a result.
Now what’s really interesting, is that Eben had not asked us that question just for the sake of it.
He was in fact, validating a theory he’d created while trying to unravel the true secret at the heart of the world’s most successful people.
What is that theory?
It’s that successful people are better at finding and creating opportunity, and better at making decisions about which opportunities to bet on.
If you look at the successful people you know, who are consistently successful in business, investing, with money, and in their financial lives — those who win not only in the short-run, but also in the long-run — you’ll see that these are the people who are constantly finding and creating great opportunities, then choosing the best ones to bet on.
In other words, seeing and capitalizing on opportunities that others miss is actually a learnable skill.
Well being the genius that he is, Eben spent the last few years breaking down this intangible art, into an actual framework and process that helps you understand what opportunity is, how it works, how it’s changing, and how to get more of it in your life.
Identifying your opportunities, and then most importantly, sorting through them to decide which one’s you should pursue, is it… This is the foundation that every success story you’ve ever heard is built upon, and today Eben’s going to teach how to do it.
And by the way, he’s also going to give a free copy of his new book on Opportunity, to all of you here at MikeDillard.
