In this video, Alex Hormozi talks about how people often hesitate to start something because they see an end to it, but in reality, all opportunities are finite.

He gives examples from the fitness and business world and emphasizes that if an opportunity has a high return, even if it's fleeting, it can be worth it.

He also encourages newer entrepreneurs to not be afraid of taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities and to not worry about what they will do in 20 years because they will likely be a different person by then.

  • Opportunities are often discounted because people think they won't last forever.
  • Understanding the journey is important before pursuing an opportunity.
  • Arbitrage opportunities in business eventually disappear as markets become more efficient.
  • People often create reasons not to pursue an opportunity because they fear failure.
  • It's important to focus on the opportunity in front of you, rather than worrying about the future.
