The world around us has become so noisy that it’s easy to not hear opportunity knocking. In the past, opportunity presented itself in only a few ways… job offers, a referral, an ad in the paper. Business was regimented… 9 to 5, straight forward processes, slow to change, staying inside the box.
Well, technology along with our lost feeling of security, job and otherwise has provided us opportunities and reason that we must keep our eyes open, explore beyond our comfort zones. We must maintain an open mind to create things of value, to control our own destiny, to diversify our income, to take calculated risk, and to think and act outside the box (of complacency, fear and procrastination).
We’re in an environment where the visionaries continue to create the playing field but it’s only doers who will win.
Acting swiftly, yet decisively, albeit deliberately, often throwing caution to the wind, caring little about what others think of them and their decisions, maintaining a laser-focus to not only succeed, but to thrive.
These individuals not only make things happen, but they also make them count, and in a big way.
They are today’s entrepreneurs.
