What People With Big Fortunes Do Right.

What are the next big business ideas of the future? Are they a result of some coincidences and occur when no-one expects them?

Or rather…come as planned, expected and quite predictable? Perhaps both of these…

If Somebody Told You That…there is Something that most of the self-created Successful People have in common, and that is easy to do, you would probably not believe that.

AS WE have been thought to believe that success requires complicated strategies, even magic ( yes, I have heard this !). That activity creates the enormously successful business ideas,  helps invent and innovate.

The Truth is…that the actions that lead to long-term success have one fundamental thing in common- they are simple, and everybody can start doing them right now!

We will talk about one of the most essential ones in this posts… and create a Challenge for you.

The Challenge in fact, IS a game for your imagination…

Do you remember when you were a child and created the castles on water and drew what you liked and wanted to have? How pleasurable it was. There are no borders for your imagination, only those you set up for yourself. If you want something, it is much easier to imagine it first,  to get it later. Just like with traveling. If you want to go somewhere…you most probably take a map and design the path, or simply know where you are going and what you want to see. If you don’t do it…you just see what comes your way. It may be extraordinary, but it may also be nothing special. Imagine the future, and think of it the way you want it to be, not as it shouldn’t be.

One of my friends asked me once:

“Let’s say you want to go to Paris. And you are on the way to it. What signs do you see along the road? Paris, or not-Paris ?”

Be direct… don’t be a person who hides his/her most precious dreams and desires. They are what distinguishes you from the rest of the world, make you unique, and …can give birth to that billion dollar idea that you have inside. Or make you able to solve the world’s most difficult problems, or fall in love. All of nature forms a puzzle… and the picture is complete only when each of its pieces is what it is designed to be- the most beautiful, richest, simplest and…Happiest form it can find. Yes…happiness is the key.

You see…  the Richest People do something that links them to a traveler who follows a map. When you travel, you may take a map and just go where you want to,because… You REALLY WANT to SEE That Special Magical Place. You are so fascinated by that special building, or landscape, or people you will meet there, or animals… that no one or nothing will stop you.

You Become Passionate and Feel Happy, You are on the way to reach a special destination…

That Activity that let’s you find the place… is similar to the action that creates great successes and fortunes.

Do you remember Alexander the Great? Some say that he died many years ago…but people who can move other people’s imagination never really die.

Alexander was a person like you and me…but he managed to reshape the world, created a vast Macedonian Empire that stretched from the Adriatic Sea to the Indus River and helped many different nations live together.

What made it possible?

A Simple Thing- his passion for… studying the maps. He collected the best available and studied them obsessively. Then he followed them. This both allowed him to see what was possible and get it much sooner.

If You can measure it…You may get it.

Like a traveler who takes a map, people who plan the future, think about the coming years, build their vision, get what they want. Too Easy to Be True? Why do you think that achievement has to be complicated and difficult?

So what the challenge is all about? Be a Kid again, and play with your imagination. Build a map for your future, you want to live in, and think about the possible changes you might encounter there, how the entrepreneurship will look like in the next 10-20 years.

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”Albert Einstein

Our imaginations are the rich gardens that bring the revolutions, inventions, create empires, fortunes…or misery.

Dive into the rich garden of your mind, think about the future. It is a game… We want to reward you for it. As you always get rewarded for being happy- your body becomes more beautiful, your health strengthens, your become far more creative, problems are much simpler…

As Promised… It’s the time to talk about The Challenge…

The Question to you is:


“What do you think, what are the possible changes in the sphere of entrepreneurship in the next 10 or 20 years?
***
What is the essential action or set of principles that will ensure your success, stability and even progress no matter the economical, social and personal changes in our world?”

would be very interesting to take part in this challenge! thanks for sharing this news. great post!

I will be taking the challenge, thanks for setting such a great task!

5 Lillea February 18, 2011 at 6:43 am

Hi Martyna,

I’m not in the running to win because I donated one of the prizes, of course, but I wanted to answer this question because it’s a great one! I look forward to reading other replies.

In the next 10-20 years, I see more of what we’ve seen in the last few years: entrepreneurs moving away from starting traditional brick & mortar business and starting online businesses instead, thanks to the lower start-up costs and the ability to work from home (a money saver thanks to the reduction in commuting and the ability to dine at home instead of paying for restaurant food, among other things).

Also, mothers with entrepreneurial drives may increasingly see the downside to working away from home. The ability to be at home with their children will be increasingly appealing and possible, and they can employ other mothers who perhaps aren’t so entrepreneurial but have decent skills to contribute, so they too can stay at home and support themselves to some degree. Fathers can benefit from working at home, too, of course. People may form “neighborhood” businesses, visiting each other’s homes to keep up the social contact and relieve boredom, but of course there can be collaboration online, so geography doesn’t have to get in the way.

Children may also get more involved in home business activities online, and off, and there might be a growing number of child entrepreneurs as a result, offering some creativity and brilliance – things that many adults often lose touch with.

Brick and mortar business start-ups won’t be out completely of course. The online focus of some entrepreneurs may open up more opportunities for brick and mortar – there will likely be an even greater demand for home office equipment and an increase in home renovation projects that center around creating office space. There may also be more demand for delivery services, including food delivery.

Competition online will increase as a result, of course, but there will still be opportunities due to an increase in unique (even downright odd) niches that will satisfy different tastes and needs around the world. And that is where the adaptability to what happens in the world comes in: keeping an eye out for those odd little niches that please enough people to be profitable, locally and beyond.

It’s likely that some of the big social networks will fall, and new ones will rise, and it may become more localized, and niche-y, and exclusive as the competition grows and entrepreneurs eke out their place in this new business world.

The key for any entrepreneur is to try to be adaptable to changes in technology and the economy, which is not always easy, but must be done to survive. I don’t see a utopia with this, just a different focus than there has been in the past, or rather, a different place to put that focus. Ultimately the right blend of appropriate skills, drive, and a tremendous amount of luck are needed for success, so this won’t change that, it just changes the arena.

hey STeve

welcome and it will be great to hear your thoughts. it is a fascinating topic, future:P the complex ever changing creature, dependent on our thoughts and actions.

cheers
Martyna

7 Martyna Bizdra February 18, 2011 at 10:17 am

Lillea

Welcome and so great to see you. How incredibly clear and interesting your point of view is. Just by reading it for the first time I started understanding more about why things happen and what might come out as a consequence, plus the entrepreneurial possibilities.

“In the next 10-20 years, I see more of what we’ve seen in the last few years: entrepreneurs moving away from starting traditional brick & mortar business and starting online businesses instead, thanks to the lower start-up costs and the ability to work from home (a money saver thanks to the reduction in commuting and the ability to dine at home instead of paying for restaurant food, among other things).”

yes, I also think so, and that it will make the Internet even stronger, not only because of the rising level of businesses created online, but also because the Internet will be an even bigger window on the world. Here I hear what Dean Hunt said some time ago- “Authority will be important in the coming years.”(paraphrasing)

yes, the internet created this wonderful scenario, when we can see the world, stay in touch, can quickly get to know what is happening on the other side of it…while being with those we love the most. But there is danger in it too. The number of people is raising, nearly 7 billion people now, with such high population, people should see the other sides of the world, to get in touch, to crush into pieces every single remaining piece of racialism. When we form closer communities, we also build laws, and create habits and borders..

“Also, mothers with entrepreneurial drives may increasingly see the downside to working away from home. The ability to be at home with their children will be increasingly appealing and possible, ”

that would be great, and create a population that knows more what love and human close relations are.
For sure the Internet will create great powers, just look what happened in Egypt, the civilians used facebook to inform each other about the protest, and how the government reacted.
If you can move somebody’s imagination, you will prosper.

“The key for any entrepreneur is to try to be adaptable to changes in technology and the economy, which is not always easy, but must be done to survive. I don’t see a utopia with this, just a different focus than there has been in the past, or rather, a different place to put that focus. Ultimately the right blend of appropriate skills, drive, and a tremendous amount of luck are needed for success, so this won’t change that, it just changes the arena.”

yes, now we can be even more brilliant than ever before in the history. Creativity in its raw form.

That is a fascinating answer Lillea, have a great weekend
thank you
Martyna

8 Lillea February 19, 2011 at 12:52 am

Thank you Martyna :)

Yes, the power of the net is quite something, isn’t it? Another danger is more rules and regulations placed by governments, etc. that limit how people can use the internet to improve their lives/the world by connecting with others, etc, but hopefully there will always be an outlet, in some way. It’s amazing how much information we can access online, that we otherwise would have a hard time finding, or we’d never find!

9 Martyna Bizdra February 19, 2011 at 9:59 am

hey Lillea :)

yes, the Internet is like a dynamite, a sword with two sharp edges. As you said- governments may use it to create more control… Competition is the Mother of Invention. :)
as you said- it is amazing – the amount of information, the nearly perfect freedom the internet creates is a test of time management, self-respect, entrepreneurship and independence. it’s like too many options become a problem. and Lillea it sounds like another product.

we live in Fascinating Times!

10 Justyna Bizdra February 19, 2011 at 11:12 pm

Hi Martyna,

I donate one of the prizes as well, so I won’t be obviously counted in the competition but here are my replies to your interesting questions:

Answering your first question…. In my opinion mostly due to the environmental issues we are facing nowadays, successful entrepreneurs will be engaging more in saving the earth from global warming disaster. They will also need to influence more how others think about their closest environment to increase their awareness of scarcity of natural resources and also to make others more aware of their own potential to make all the changes they want in their lives. All that in order to be happy and coexist in harmony with other people and the nature.

The second question…. Essential things for me to be successful are:
- knowing what I want and what is important for me,
- taking all the necessarily steps to live how I want, not postponing for later moment,
- taking all responsibility for who I am and what happens in my life,
- constant learning and improvement,
- risk taking, always moving forward, not giving up when there are failures
- surrounding myself with positive people, who are action-takers and consciously shape their own reality.

Thanks for your interesting post :)

11 Martyna Bizdra February 20, 2011 at 2:04 pm

hey Justynka :)

thank you for your great answer !

I agree with you that the entrepreneurship of the future will be based on the cooperation with the ecosystem and long-term planning. It is a shift from thinking that humans are the most important part of nature to knowing that we are an important part…but a part like a colorful drop in the ocean on nature.

“They will also need to influence more how others think about their closest environment to increase their awareness of scarcity of natural resources and also to make others more aware of their own potential to make all the changes they want in their lives. All that in order to be happy and coexist in harmony with other people and the nature.”
beautifully said

It would be great to know the strategies you use to get what you want.
“knowing what I want and what is important for me” :) yes!

Hi Martyna,
Great questions. It got me thinking. Here is a brief take on your questions.

“What do you think, what are the possible changes in the sphere of entrepreneurship in the next 10 or 20 years?”

The new trend is for more businesses to explore the online sphere with innovative ways to promote it such as social media, videos, and podcasts. More and more people are creating online business because it needs minimal start up capital and it has very little overhead. Marketing can also be done with minuscule capital given all the free ways to promote through social media. We’re learning all the ways to promote businesses online. New avenues surface everyday.
Since more businesses are now online, the products that these business offer is also evolving. These new online businesses are now offering more and more online products. A huge amount of ebooks now compete with printed materials since they are cheaper to produce and to sell providing a higher profitability margin for the author. Other online offerings are kits with books/workbooks with videos and podcasts as support materials and memberships to produce a steady monthly income.

“What is the essential action or set of principles that will ensure your success, stability and even progress no matter the economical, social and personal changes in our world?”

What stands us apart from others and secures our stability is the ability to create new businesses and products in alignment with our passions. Many people are now leaving their jobs to create new opportunities online based on what they always wanted to do but didn’t have the courage. Being that online business are so cost effective, more and more people now dare to move towards their dreams.

Thanks for opening the door to this wonderful discussion.
Loving blessings!

While reading your comment I realized something – thanks to :
“The new trend is for more businesses to explore the online sphere with innovative ways to promote it such as social media, videos, and podcasts.

Marketing can also be done with minuscule capital given all the free ways to promote through social media. We’re learning all the ways to promote businesses online. New avenues surface everyday.”

it saves time and money…that can be poured into new ideas. Human Mind doesn’t accept vacuum. We need to create, evolve and simplify. when we have time and space “New avenues surface everyday” . well said.

by reading your comment I have found assurance that creating challenges has many great advantages and a brainstorming session is one of those. It reminds me of your article on being careful with the selective relationships! Yin and Yang, need each other.

“What stands us apart from others and secures our stability is the ability to create new businesses and products in alignment with our passions.” Our uniqueness can never be stolen or taken away. It is yours. And can only evolve.

Thank you for your great comment
blessings!

14 Kate February 21, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Hola Martyna

what a great task… I love to challenge my own mind, and imagining the future…is fun!!!. Richard Branson said : “My favorite past time is fantasizing about the future”

I would say that the future will be very closely related to our ability to cooperate with nature. For centuries people have thought of themselves as the masters of the whole Earth, and from the point of intelligence we are…supremely great…but the other species are equally important in the stability of the whole system. It is kind of funny to think about the evolution- if we are the latest step in its process…what comes next, after us? Nature needs to evolve to survive… and the will to live is the strongest hunger.

So I think that the future of business is dependent on those who can prosper and make the transformation possible. Only. Or there is no future.
I do not want to sound like a pessimist…but rather an optimist- realist.

To answer the second part of your question-

I agree with my predecessors,
and want to add my piece:

to survive we need rest, to recharge our batteries. From there our creative muscles take their strength.

Thanks for the challenge, I liked the other answers too.

speak soon
Kate

15 James Dean February 22, 2011 at 2:32 am

There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.

16 Martyna Bizdra February 22, 2011 at 10:40 am

Kate

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to answer the question.

If we don’t think as one co-existing system with the rest of the natural world, we get only a partial result, which equals huge consequences. In the past, because the Earth seemed to be abundant…people were able to use and abuse, the natural resources seemed to be endless…

What you said about the rest…is like mentioning water, those issues are fundamental – clean water, fresh air, rest, nutritious food…
that we need to prosper, be full of energy and live!

all the best, have a great day
Martyna

When was this competition? I feel like I could have won. You should have another one :).

18 Jim Olenbush@Austin Luxury Real Estate December 14, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Challenging yourself is one good way to ensure that you are very determined to work hard in whatever you are doing. It is good that you decided to give away some prices to people who visit your site. This definitely kept them motivated.

19 Nathan woodbury@restaurant website design February 10, 2012 at 7:00 am
