Living in the world of possibilities is the pathway to opportunities
In this article, Valerie Young distinguishes between the World of Possibilities from the Real World as they apply to entrepreneurship and running your own business. Too many business owners limit themselves by dwelling in the Real World. The Real World is characterized by conversations like, "it can't be done!;" "stop dreaming, get real!" She says "when you dwell in the World of Possibilities, you know things are possible because other people are doing them."
Figure it out and join the club
Valerie suggests that if you're starting a business (career), developing one or want to introduce a new product or service, there's always a way to figure out how to make it happen. Go to the source. Find out what people in the market you're interested in need. Once you find that out, you can seek out experts to assist you in providing what your market needs.
"Whenever you find yourself thinking that your dream is not possible, find someone who is successfully doing the thing you want to do and follow them."
