Have you been thinking about what it would be like to take advantage of one or more of the ripe opportunities available in today’s global marketplace? Thinking about it will take you only half way. Sooner or later you’re going to have to take action, and hopefully you’ll do that before the opportunity passes you by.

Whether you’re already in business or on the threshold of making the jump from your day job to entrepreneurship, opportunities for success are all around you. The Internet continues to set the pace for business growth and expansion. The virtual world is at your front door. Will you open it?

Fantasizing about what it would be like to take one of your ideas and run with it is more than it appears to be. Thoughts are things. The more you flesh out your ideas in your mind, the more solid they become as opportunities.

It’s often tempting to harness ideas and hold them in thought without ever taking action, and many people do just that their entire lives. They never open the door when opportunity comes knocking and instead are content to merely look through the peep hole at what’s out there. Why don’t they open the door?

Fear keeps some of us from stepping fully into our dreams: fear of failure and perhaps surprisingly, the fear of success. Why would someone fear success? The fear of success is sometimes the mirror image of the fear of failure. If we knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that once we achieved success we would be able to sustain it, we might not fear it as much. But the fear of becoming successful and then losing it all because we couldn’t sustain it keeps some people from ever opening the door to opportunity, even when it’s staring them right in the face.

Are you one of these people? If so, you’re a thought away from changing things. Unless you take action you’ll never know what amazing things are waiting to express themselves through you.

If Thomas Edison had never explored his ideas on creating the light bulb, what would have happened? I’ll tell you. Eventually someone else would have done it. Is that what you want to happen to your ideas? Believe me, I’ve heard many stories from people who experienced just that. So when opportunity comes knocking, run to the door and open it wide before it moves on the guy next door. The go ahead and do that thing you’ve been dreaming about. Try and try again if necessary. You won’t have to do it alone—there’s plenty of support. Watch the attached video and see where your mind takes you.
