As you build your business, you will encounter tough situations. You can choose to see these as problems, or you can choose to see them as opportunities.
John Chow has always chosen to see opportunities where others may have seen problems, and that’s why he’s been successful in business.
In this video, filmed at the Super Charge Summit in Las Vegas, he talks about an example of a time he chose to see an opportunity instead of a problem.
WHERE JOHN CHOW GREW UP…
John Chow’s family moved to Vancouver when he was 7. Although Vancouver is consistently voted one of the best places in the world to live, close to the mountain and the beach, John Chow’s family did not live on the side of Vancouver that you see on postcards.
They lived on the Downtown Eastside, which is notorious for its drug problems and has the highest concentration of HIV in North America.
It’s not a good place to raise a family, but the young John Chow never saw it as a problem. He always saw it as an opportunity. To him, it was a vast improvement on his neighborhood in China, where the toilets did not even flush.
IS IT REALLY A PROBLEM?
When you’re presented with a tough situation, you can either see it as a problem or an opportunity.
It’s in those tough situations that our brains innovate, brainstorm and troubleshoot to create new opportunities.
When Sara Blakely decided to start Spanx, she had never been an entrepreneur before. You could consider that a problem for her, because she had a lack of experience. But it also meant that she had no fear, because she was naive about what could go wrong.
In a way, having no experience as an entrepreneur was an opportunity for her, not a problem. Within years, she became the world’s youngest female billionaire.
It’s your choice how you look at tough situations. They don’t have to be problems when you can see them as opportunities.

Can I Really Do This Business?
One of the most common questions from people who are thinking about joining MOBE is, “Will all of this work for me?” and “Can I really do this business?” The answer is, regardless of your age, background, where you’re from, or your experience level, you can do this business. You can start your own online business, and be successful at it.
If you’re truly ready to move forward and make a positive change in your financial future, then go applying for this program.
This is a 21 step system that was created by MOBE (by Matt Lloyd) to help you make your first $1,250, $3,300, $5,500, and even $10,000 online. You’ll also be given a one on one coach who will work with you, and answer any questions you may have. All you have to do is follow the system and do what your coach advises. You may not make as much as 6-7 figures earners (who knows), but you will have access to the same tools and training that allowed them to make that kind of income.
The application fee is one time $49, and allows you to go through all 21 steps. I recommend you go through the steps, then decide if this is something you want to do.
If it is, great! Welcome aboard.
If you decided this is not something you want to do at this time, then get a refund and go on with your life. It can’t be simpler than that.
