In the movie Top Gun, there is a classic line that all fighter pilots say, “Take the shot! Take the shot!” If you saw the movie, you may recall that the time available to take the shot at the enemy aircraft is measured in split of seconds. If you wait too long or are unprepared, you will miss the opportunity. The same is true in the world of money. The window of opportunity to take the shot is also narrow. If you are frozen in time, stuck in the past, dressing like your mom or dad, unprepared, or lacking the business and investment skills required, you might not even see the window of opportunity, you may take shots at opportunities that are also frozen in time and not going anywhere.
