You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince, or so the admonition goes.
Forget the gender bias here, I'm using this saying regardless of your gender!
Over the past 3-4 years I've joined a number of high ticket programs. They ranged in price from $3500 to $20,000. Some were good, some were bad and some were just "meh"!
AND, the amount I paid wasn't an indicator of how good they turned out to be.
My computation has always worked as follows:
Can I make my initial investment in the program back in the next 90 days? Or, as a maximum, in the next year?
If the answer is YES, then I'm in.
A lot of smart people I know, disagree. I understand where they are coming from.
Here's what "they" will say:
* Pick one and follow their system completely. Don't get distracted by the next shiny guru.
* Concentrate. Don't keep looking. Keep your head down and work.
* Make your selection carefully up front, then follow what they tell you to do . . . exactly!
* Stay the course with the expert/guru you select, if not, you won't make it.
Sorry, but just like in grade school - I DON'T LISTEN!
I take a hybrid approach. I go through each program and pull out the best parts.
In my view, it's very similar to relationships. Some people think you can get EVERYTHING from one person. I think that's delusional.
Even if you're married to the "best person in the world", they may not be the person who wants to play poker with you when you're in the mood.
If you have 10 areas of life (that are super important to you) and your primary partner is perfect for 5 of those areas, you're way better off than most!
There's more to this, but let me know your thoughts!
