Passion & Dream; useless without actions

To be entrepreneur, whether full or part time, you need to have passion and dream. Your dream needs to be fed by your passion. It is your passion that will hold you to your dream. Then you need to have friends, relatives, or people around you that you can share your dreams with.

Be around especially with people that have enormous energy level. That kind of energy level that is positive and can propel you. If you be around people that have energy below you, you can be dragged down. So, it is advisable to give yourself a dose of energy by joining clubs, conference, seminars and events and meet people that can energize you.

Once you are clear with what you want, know your path to wealth, you need to take actions. It is only taking actions that we can learn and internalize what we learnt and gained. For example, when we reach our 40s, we have lots of responsibilities and commitments. We have bills to pay, mouths to feed and many more. As a result, we develop fear of failure. We continue be an employee, get monthly pay cheque and hope everything remain this way till we reach retiring age of 60-65 years old. But in reality, this may not be true. Companies are keeping cost down by getting employees to retire earlier. Retrenchments and layoffs are common these days. No one is indispensable.

I see this happened to many executives in my working life in a number of MNCs. And sad to say, many are coming into the same life path and not doing anything at all for themselves and not prepared enough for retirements, unavoidable layoffs, technological advances that made jobs disappear, companies relocated, factories close down, economic crises, etc.

One of the solutions for me personally is to be a part time entrepreneur. There are many solutions and avenues available these days for aspiring entrepreneurs and part-timers. You can teach part time, join a MLM, Home Businesses, or the do the latest stuff called Internet Marketing.

The solution to fear is therefore to take small actions. When you take small actions, you will gain experience and knowledge and abilities. Fear will decrease as a result. It is a viscous cycle.

FEAR -take small actions - get EXPERIENCE - developed ABILITY - FEAR decreases - you'll will take more small actions and so on.

FEAR - no Action - INEXPERIENCE - INABILITY - FEAR increase - and so on.

Small actions don't really risk much. But it can propel us to more positive actions. So, let's take some small actions today.
