One of the first lessons I’ve learned from life, is that many people achieve success by taking completely different routes.
For me, every time I want to pursue a new venture I ask myself: What is the great opportunity most people are overlooking? How can I take advantage of it and do it better?
When I have a clear answer to these questions, and believe I can do it and feel passionate about it, I set out to work on it!
Opportunities are everywhere. You only need to listen to what your potential customers need and how you can efficiently solve their problems.
One thing that I do to come up with new ideas, is to look at the problems my potential customers are having, the solutions my future competitors are giving, and try to find a better, smarter, faster or cheaper way to achieve the same.
Sadly, a lot of smart people know what their goals are and how to achieve them, but are too lazy or too afraid to actually work on them.
