Are opportunities, distractions in disguise?

I have an entrepreneur “friend” on Facebook and every so often she will ask me how I am, closely followed by an amazing opportunity!

There was a time when I would have probed further, discovered more and maybe even considered attending an event or taking part in the buying process! But as my knowledge has grown substantially since 2012, when my entrepreneurial journey began, I now know the majority of opportunities just from the ‘leading’ words up to it and finally I can switch off the temptation of finding out more and being distracted from my current missions, thereby lowering my productivity.

And now I want my own dreams so badly, and to follow my own entrepreneurial path, to the point where my body cannot take hardly any new “opportunity” that comes my way, and I have to say no!
In fact, this person makes me feel angry every time they bring up another opportunity! To the point where I want to scream, “I want to get my own dreams”. I feel I have done enough training for what I need to know, and now is the year to focus on implementation and productivity. I think the anger I feel, is a reflection of the frustration I feel, at not yet achieving as much as I should. I am now using this anger to motivate me to achieve my dreams at more super speed, turbo boost rate! As well as playing these two songs, to reinforce that mindset and motivation, to get ahead faster! And it’s working! So far, so good!


About Quirky Books

Published Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide and Asexual Perspectives 47 Asexual Stories: Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Asexual Diversity. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book. Buy it from Amazon UK: Buy it from Amazon USA: Like on Facebook You can view my quirkybooks writing blog at
