Do you give up once thing get hard? If so, I am here to tell you that your lack of patience, distractions & “Shiny Object Syndrome” are killing your results. We have all been guilty of this from time to time.
In business terms, the Shiny Object Syndrome is when a new idea captures your attention in such a way that you get distracted and go off in many directions, instead of remaining focused on your goal. The result is that you end up achieving nothing.
Many people think that if they jump from thing to thing, they will find a better opportunity, but this is far from true. When you commit 100% of your efforts to one thing, you will not only make greater leaps, but you will also achieve more.
Are you ready to stop dabbling and start mastering your online business?

If you want to be successful in life you need to focus on one thing and give it everything that you have, despite that fact that there may be easier, more profitable routes to your desired destination.
This is a very important habit to develop early on in your online business, because as you become more successful, there will be more opportunities that arise that can throw you off course, if you let them.
Yes, these opportunities may benefit your life, but there is no possible way that you can take on all of them at once. Ultimately, they will only serve as distractions to your overall purpose in life.
Dabblers love the rituals involved in starting something new and exciting, however, when they hit a plateau, they jump ship. Their enthusiasm wanes easily, and soon enough, their focus is diverted to something else.
Alternatively, masters commit to everything. They understand the newness of something, but when they hit a plateau, they don’t stop. They view challenges as opportunities to grow and expand.
What has worked well for me with regards to staying on track with my goals is knowing what my vision is for my life and my business. I refuse to compromise my vision for a shiny object.
You have to step back and ask yourself, “Is this opportunity a distraction, or will it add value to my business?” Sometimes it can be useful to be adaptive, if it serves a purpose.
What matters most is that you master whatever it is that most supports the overall vision for your life. Make sure that you finish the race before you start a new one. If you don't, the “Shiny Object Syndrome” will kill your results.
Discipline your time, energy and focus to the tasks that will bring you one step closer to the achievement of your goals. A mentor of mine once said, “How you do anything is how you do everything.” Build the habit of finishing things that you start, and achieving the goals that you set for yourself.
Avoid the “Shiny Object Syndrome”, and commit your life to mastery. Your business will thank you for it.
