    The opposite of the thread title is "Look Before You Leap!" and at times has a place in your life but not in this post nor in this thread so understand this is a tread about grasping the concept of a sense of urgency.

    You find a niche with great keywords, a strong CPC, a few solid Click Bank offers and some outstanding opportunities on Commission Junction (CJ.com)and you decide to sit on it and play Halo on your PS3.

    You Lost.

    You come across 5 free adwords coupons for 100.00 each that have an expiration date a week out and you put it on your "to do" list.

    You Lost.

    You plan on waking up tomorrow, putting in 5 miles, doing some lifting and banging out some calisthenics but when the morning rolls around you hit the snooze button repeatedly instead of getting up and getting going.

    You Lost.

    You are driving down the road enjoying the 800.00 Bose sound system with your favorite tunes and you pass a lady who has a flat tire and is working on changing it herself and you continue on down the road without stopping to handle it for her.

    You Lost.

    Your better half says "Let's go out to dinner this evening at our favorite restaurant" and you say you are too tired and suggest that you get take out delivered.

    You Lost.

    Your friend calls you and needs a hand moving as their lease is up and they found a new place but you beg off and say you have XYZ to do.

    You Lost.


    Stop Losing

    Take advantage of the opportunities to be a winner in the business world, the internet marketing world as well as your personal life... take the time to grow and give, to learn and live, to be a living organism and not just a drain on society.

    Don't Be an Oxygen Thief

    Be one that gives, shares and loves because if you do not you will regret it forever.

    We have an arabic proverb that says : Don't post stone what you can do today for Tomorrow .
    The English Version that I like of this proverb is : You Snooze , You loose
    It is 2012 people , Keep up with the speed .
    BTB , how is your dad doing ?

    I don't understand why this thread was rated two stars. I gave it five but it's only on three now. It's very true and I've had a lot of these situations, not that I didn't know beforehand but it just ain't as easy as it looks, it's pretty damn hard to take on opportunities when you're a lazy slacker. It is easier said then done. On the other hand some of those are the type of opportunities you realize after it's too late. Those that read this thread and put this on their to do, or reply with a positive reply and then go back to their same old selves, simply lose. That might be me, lets hope not.

    Thank you for this lesson, btb. You've been a great motivator, but I'll have to be honest that I have lost badly 2 weeks ago.

    I was walking down a street with my headphones on, and I saw an old lady walking unsteadily with the help of her cane. She had difficulties crossing the road, and my heart told me to help her out. What did I do? I carelessly ignored and instead, watched her crossed the road by herself. I continued walking down the street, regretting what I have just done. I slapped myself numerous times for not following my heart. After 2 long weeks, I still can't forget this stupid act of mine and I probably never will. BTB is totally right; Be one that gives, shares and loves because if you do not you will regret it forever.

    Ever since, I promised myself that I will become a winner.

    Good take on life from BTB! My attitude is you can rest when you take your dirt nap. Life is too short and hug your kids too while you're at it!
