Missed business opportunities

In my life, I have missed a lot of business opportunities. When I say missed business opportunities, what mean is I was capable of doing those businesses yet I did not and missed a chance of growing as an entrepreneur and making a lot of money.

I am going to share one of my greatest mistakes in my life.

Bitcoin and Ethereum Investment

Crypto investment is one of the business opportunities that I missed. I failed to understand the value of Bitcoin and Ethereum. I received bitcoin for the first time in 2016. I received 0.25 Bitcoin. If I had not spent bitcoins and held in my wallet, I would have a lot of money now. When knew Ethereum, it was $12. If I wanted I could have invested in ethereum but I did not and missed the opportunities to make a lot of money.

To me i have never missed any business opportunity because I personally do not even have money to start up a business but the only opportunity and missed was when I bought a certain cryptocurrency few months ago at the very cheap rates and I sold it off because it was sluggish in movement but now I'm the price has gone so much.

There is no need to be so hard on yourself with so much regret. Take it as a lessom well learnt because now you know that you should always grab opportunities when they show up. Also, you need to understand that we can't always take every opportunity available. If you look back, you may realize that even if you never invested in those cryptos, there is another thing that worked for you.

I think fear is the real cause of some business opportunities. From my personal experience i think a lot of time fear keeps me away from investing. Just like you i have Missed opportunity of having good profit from Bitcoin but didn't invest how I should. Not that I didn't have the money but I have just sceptical and the opportunity blow over

With investments we may have the missed opportunities sometime but we can learn a lesson on that. However when it comes to investment my priority is the enjoyment of life so I would rather travel abroad than to keep my money to buy real estate. We have spent maybe the equivalent of 2 lots for our travels for 10 years. But no regrets with that.
