It's most tempting to new Internet marketers ( although many experienced are embarrassed admitting to having it). Most I.Mer's have been tripped up by it, distracted by it and ... even destroyed by it.
Have you ever had Shiny object syndrome? How did you get out of it? And most importantly, how do you stay out of it?
For example, I had it for a little under two years when I first started.
I remember thinking, "so many opportunities ... so little time." The words Ground Floor Opportunity ... Easy Money and ... Be Your Own Boss always grabbed my attention.
But, if I didn't see any money after a few months (or weeks) I'd always seem to notice what looked like a better opportunity.
I broke out of Shiny Object Syndrome when I got tired of starting over and wasting money - while having nothing to show for it.
So, I decided to focus on my passion (Niche Marketing), whether I made money with it or not (which I didn't for a whole year). But it was my passion so that made it easier to focus, persist and ignore other shiny objects.
What's your story?
Thanks for sharing because I know most people resist talking about Shiny Object Syndrome when it applies to them personally. Everyone has advice but few will admit they've ever had it.
