3 Keys to Identifying Good Opportunities

1. The growth / benefit potential exceeds required input.

If you can see that the reward is positive in the end despite the effort and whatever else is needed for you to take advantage of the opportunity, chances are it’s a good one for you. If the magnitude of what is required from you is daunting or overwhelming, but you have even a glimmer of something better as a result of the opportunity, it’s worth taking the risk. Being a soul-driven entrepreneur is about experiencing the range of your personal possibilities for your best growth, which is what drives your business growth.

2. It keeps showing up for you.

If it seems that the same types of opportunities keep presenting, such as you are attracting the same difficult client with a different name or your energy fades out at the same time of day or your money issues don’t change over time, these are patterns of opportunities that are inviting you to get to your next level. (The only thing worse than this type of opportunity showing up is NOT having it show up for you – or not being able to see it to move forward in a bigger way!) If you see a pattern to your opportunities, it’s time to do something different – take advantage of it and see where it takes you.

3. You will regret not taking it.

There are times when you may not know an opportunity is the right one or at the right time, but you can feel that you would experience loss, sadness or regret if you don’t take advantage of it when it’s right there. Sometimes it comes down to a split decision in the moment – that is your spirit demanding that you show up for yourself beyond your comfort zone and in trust that you will have the experience and outcomes that you need in your best and highest good. Ideally, at any point in your life, you can look at where you are and where you’ve been without regret. Just do it!
