One of the biggest issues I know I’ve made, is not having a good handle on Opportunity Timing. This is why I want to have a quick conversation around how you should take some time to look at what you may lose out on. Let’s have an honest conversation, shall we?

Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on when you’re tuning in. My name is Jonathan Torres and you are watching or listening to the JTH show today. I want to talk about opportunity, timing, but first roll the intro.
Alright. So remember guys, you guys can listen to the audio version of this, unless you already are listening to it on Spotify, Apple podcasts, Google podcasts, or radio public. So this video came out of a talk that I had with someone a couple days ago, and it inspired me because of the, the contents of the conversation, of course, in which you know, I’m, I’m listening to someone that I feel wants to do more, but feels that they have missed, you know, time and time again, opportunities.
0 (1m 8s):
Now, you know, at the end, this individual, which asked me to leave him nameless said, you know what? It’s, I think it’s because of the fact that I, I need to find easy way out because I’ve always been this way. Right? And that, that just kind of like struck me as well, just because something has been doesn’t mean it should always be.
0 (1m 38s):
And more importantly, you know, when it comes to opportunities, I believe, and from experience, I can tell you that timing is everything. You know? I know some of you guys might disagree. Some of you guys might say, no, it’s not 10 times it who’s giving you the opportunities. Sure. But think back, think back to when you were able to meet that person, the timing of everything. Now you’re going to tell me, well, what if my mom, my dad, my uncle, my family member gives me an opportunity.
0 (2m 12s):
All right. For you guys. I, I’m not going to sit here and argue with you guys, but for the rest of you, right. We really got to realize how many times we’ve said things. And I have my loan notes over here. Right? And here, I don’t know why I always do this, but they’re connected anyways. You know, I should have done this. I should have done that. Maybe you don’t say it out loud, but you definitely think about it, right. You’ll be sitting. So maybe in your room, in your couch, at work in the car and then you’ll come across something that you’re like, man, I should’ve, I should’ve, I should’ve done that.
0 (2m 47s):
I’ve showed up. I’ve should’ve reached out to that person. I’ve should have said this. I should’ve said that. And you know, we don’t and we’ll, you know, we do it again and again, right? Like this person I’m talking about, it’s like, why, why do we get so much in our way? And I truly believe that the number one reason, I’m sure you might have already heard about, you know, I heard of this before, excuse me, fear. Fear is a mother, right?
0 (3m 19s):
For some reason, you know, maybe not every parent, but for some reason when we’re growing up, when we’re little, we’re encouraged to walk, talk to eat to do so many things until we’re not. And then we spend the majority of our lives remembering that, right. We have our children take their first steps and we make a, a party out of it.
0 (3m 53s):
And then we want them to sit down more. We will spend countless hours saying, can you say, dad, can you say mom or whatever you want your baby to say. And then we spend even more time telling them to be quiet. And I think a lot of that comes, you know, back in some shape or form. Now that you’re an adult and you think back, right? What makes you feel safe? And timing, timing usually never makes you feel safe.
0 (4m 27s):
And what I mean by timing, I mean like keeping eye, keeping an eye on the clock, right? How many people, I don’t know, get comfortable just looking at the clock and be like, look at that minute, go look at it. Go, no, what do you usually do? You’re like this and that. And your event has to do with time. It usually is because it’s making you feel uncomfortable. So anything that we want a time we worry about and we worry about it so much that we rather not do it and fail than fail because we didn’t time it correctly.
0 (5m 7s):
And then we left that it, it could be for almost anything it could be for having children. Are you too young? Are you too old? It could be for your next job. Are you experienced enough as enough time gone by in the position you’re doing? Should I apply? Am I too young? Am I too old? Right. And again, the person that I was talking about or talking with, excuse me, you know, he, he made me realize that, right.
0 (5m 39s):
He made me realize that when, when he’s like, Oh, you know, I was high and I’m kind of like my plants, right. That I’m doing. And I just share this in the previous video. And he was like, ma man, I really wish I can do that. I’m just, you know, I’m too old now. And of course every call it solution, right? I got a reason why it wasn’t a good idea. It wasn’t a solution for him. And you can say, well, yeah, JT, because not everything you do works for everyone else. I understand that, duh.
0 (6m 10s):
But what I do understand is a many of us go throughout life, not listening, no matter how old you are, two possible solutions and possible things that you know will let you hit the right time, the right timing on things. Most of the time, that’s actually us who we’re listening to. Because again, we’re too old, we’re too young, but this, but that fine.
0 (6m 41s):
I’ll do it when this I’ll do it. If that, and you know, I don’t know the, the hearing this individual, as much as I appreciate him, it made me feel a little sad for him. Right. Because I feel that there is a big part of him that has that desire, that hunger to want to do something and know, by the way, I’m not talking about someone that’s like 50 or 60. They they’re like, Oh, come on. Is that a really older person? No, the guy is probably in his forties.
0 (7m 10s):
Maybe, maybe early thirties or I’m sorry, late thirties. Well, or, or he just age really, really badly. I’m sorry if you know who you’re, who you are. I’m just kidding. All right. We have a relationship, but yeah. You know, it’s like, you want to do more. You should try. Instead of trying really hard at convincing yourself why you cannot do something. And I think that’s true for many people out there. I think it’s true for many people. Many of you may be watching this.
0 (7m 42s):
Now. I’m not telling you this to make you feel bad. I’m telling you this to also encourage you to do something that you’re too afraid, and you’re going to start entering like a panic mode and you know, no, no, no, no. I’m telling you this so that you can maybe take a good, hard, look at yourself and see what you have done that you want it to do and see what you have not done, but you want it to do. And how many things you’re going to blame on timing? You know, how many things you’re going to say?
0 (8m 13s):
Well, I would have, you know, two years ago, four years ago, six years ago, two months ago, you know, look at the stock market, right? I’ve invested heavily. I have put it on my social media timing. Timing was everything for me to make the money that I made. Well, how much did you make JT such as muscle, but I’ll tell you for those of you guys are like, what is cheese? MoSo it’s basically, you’re be nosy. So I’ll tell you, you know, I like to be transparent.
0 (8m 43s):
No, this is not showing enough. Okay. I didn’t make millions. So let’s get out of the way. Probably made, I don’t know, like 15,000 somebody guys to be like, dude, I made like 50 good for you. Some of you guys would be like, damn, that’s a lot. It’s an, it is. But it’s not, you know, for what I invested, I came up pretty damn good. Pretty damn good. I cannot complain. But it was timing. It was timing when I’m like, I’m going to go ahead and put money into something that people are telling me not to is a bubble.
0 (9m 16s):
Okay. Well, I withdrew my money. It kept increasing. And now I’m like, ah, timing. But you know, I also wanted to be safe, but it doesn’t mean I never went in. And I went in when I was like four more, you know, blast that out there. Now I’m going to have to freak actually mute that word that I just said, because I’ve been getting I’m suppressing a lot of my videos for certain words. So maybe just her like owner, you know what I mean? Right. Anyways. And yeah.
0 (9m 47s):
I mean, people that know that I made a list or were like, damn, I wish I would have stopped. Wishing stop wishing. Right? If you have an opportunity in front of you, that you feel it’s an opportunity, a good opportunity for you stop seeking approval. You can seek advice as to like, Hey, you’ve done this. What do you think? Don’t let it go beyond that. Think what he, what does he, or she think that’s it. But it doesn’t mean that that’s what you’re going to think.
0 (10m 18s):
Now it means that maybe you should take an under consideration just like anybody that has ever taken advice from me. And that’s it. Don’t ask me what to do. I’ll tell you what I’ve done. I’ll tell you what I think someone in your situation could do, but it doesn’t mean they are like, aha. What’s step two again. Right? But after step two, I go, come on. And I feel like a lot of individuals are waiting for that are waiting for like a walkthrough, a step by step on, you know, what is perfect timing.
0 (10m 47s):
Your, your timing. The one that you want to go for is actually good timing. Even if you’ve told me what JT, I dunno, man, I’ve done some stuff. And I thought it was good timing. Yeah. But that’s how you learn right? In Spanish. I don’t even know if there’s is the right saying, but there is a it’s a, I don’t even know. You gotta come and translate that it’s like, I’m rotting, you’ll learn or something. I mean, if some of you guys going to like, it’s like this, whatever commented them below, but it’s still true.
0 (11m 19s):
You know, some of the times we have to go out there and drop the ball, you know, I’ll say, Ooh, damn, all right. Not perfect timing, but it doesn’t mean you quit the game and doesn’t mean you don’t go again. Right. Opportunity. Opportunity is at your door right now. And I say this because I used to be just like the person I’m describing and now I’m not trying to be, you know, I don’t know. I don’t know. Kinda like inspiration on tape. That person I was talking about is me now.
0 (11m 50s):
It’s not me. It’s someone else actually. But I used to be somewhat like him. Right. And man that I miss us on. Good opportunity. I missed out. I’m sorry on sung. Good, good opportunities. Then now I’m like, well, wherever the, that ship has sailed. But look at that. There’s another ship right here. And it’s all about getting on it, paying the price of admission sometimes, you know, and that’s a metaphor for maybe having to buy something to do that.
0 (12m 23s):
Something you want to do, maybe it’s social media marketing, getting a good computer is what I’m talking about. Right? Price of admission, maybe it’s, you know what? I have a desktop, I want to do construction. I’m buying tools, maybe buying a certification, whatever the price of admission is, but don’t let that ship just, just because you’re like the next one for sure. The next one, because you are getting older. Yeah. Even if you’re right now watching, you’re like 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 young, you are getting older.
0 (13m 0s):
And by the way, I shouldn’t have said that if you’re 11, you should go ask your mommy and daddy be, can watch his video. But if you know, you’re, you’re a young adult, put it that way. You know, you should, you should really consider what that price of admission is for what you want to do. And start, start small start, but start small. Right. Don’t you know, I don’t want to talk to someone else that that kind of feels that way. That that’s a reflection of everything that now that they’re going to do in the, in the rest of their life probably is just like, yeah, I could have, I should have done that thing over there, but ah, maybe a horse I’m not too old.
0 (13m 39s):
Right? So anyways guys, that’s it for today? Just a, there’s a small little video, you know about, you know, what I, what I feel some people might be missing out on or a little thing for myself here. I can’t believe it and read it for you. And that is that most people opportunity timing is off because of their inherited, inability to realize that they’ll continue missing out on things. They desire because too often, too often they will shut themselves down.
0 (14m 14s):
Sorry. If I read it kind of weirdly I wrote down, no, I didn’t steal this from somebody. I wrote it down. I’m like, man, these are awards that kind of resonated with me. And it’s something very similar to that told our person and yeah, you know, it’s a lot of the stuff that we have is just inherited from whoever raised us. I’m not saying that your mommy and daddy are man or mean or whatever, your mommy, poppy, no respect to them, whatever, whoever they are awesome. Zane is, you know, we can always look to them to look to the future, whoever they are, that is who they are and whatever they achieve is whatever they achieved.
0 (14m 51s):
It doesn’t mean that you either can achieve as much or more. That’s all it is. You know? That’s what I mean by inherited. Okay. Right. Yeah. For sure. This time we’re done. Okay. Cool. All right guys, as always liking to subscribe and until next time,
