Have a Vision in the New Information (and Technological) Age...and for YOUR LIFE (Part Three)

As the ancient Chinese proverb said:
"It's a privilege to live in exciting times."

I don't have any "techno skills"; yet we work in a "synergetic
relationship " (big words to impress you,Guest Posting but which
simply means "1 + 1 = 3 - the whole is greater than the
sum of the individual parts/persons"). We are working together
towards a common goals in a business vision, whereby we all
help and complement each other with our particular strengths
(and attempt to cover weaknesses...and I've got plenty of those!).

The successful cyber entrepreneur of today could well be the equivalent
of the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Kennedy's, Paul Getty's and Henry Ford's
of yesteryear, especially in the new ENTREPRENEURIAL (nice big word)
AGE, which I believe, is even more important (and a more appropriate
term) than the information age (not that I'd like to be one of them,
a business "tycoon", btw!).

I believe it is essential to have a vision of the future to
achieve success in business (as in life itself)...because
putting the vision into words keeps you on track through
imprinting on the sub-conscious mind. Then total focus +
EFFORT (ie. ACTION) breeds an absolute commitment to
achieving the goal, the "impossible dream".

My associate, Bill and I here have an ultimate vision (or dream)
of Gisborne on the East Coast of the North Island of scenic
and tranquil New Zealand one day being a "recognised"
centre of electronic, as well as conventional publishing,
a world-renowned centre in providing quality courses in
distance education and adult online teaching. Perhaps one day
even becoming a centre of excellence in developing technology
in the South Pacific. Fools, dreamers, "those guys"!

Thanks to my "technogeek" associates, Bill Rosoman in Gisborne,
Stephan Van Lingen in South Africa, my former country
(http://www.bridgeniche.com) and Erich Licht of Rapture
Web design in Ohio, USA (http://www.rapturewebservices.com)
for all their hard work, help, drive, talent and vision, as I don't
understand much of modern technology - "a total non-techno",
who couldn't even turn on a computer four years ago!).

As I mentioned (stop repeating yourself - bad writing, Craig!),
I believe an idea, a big helping of enthusiasm, together with
a great deal of time and effort in implementing it, belief/
faith in yourself and your product or service, plus persistence
(not necessarily in that order) is the key to marketing success
and seeing one's vision turn into reality.

That is our ultimate vision and something we at Eagle Productions
in association with Bill Rosoman of Nugrow Technologies here in
Poverty Bay (oops er sorry, Eastland), Stephan and Erich are daily
striving towards with all our energies and creative endeavours.

And then dreams and "fairy tales" do sometimes come true.

What you do today could repay you a hundred-fold
tomorrow and there is just one rule:
As the Nike ad says,

"Just go for it following your entrepreneurial dream...

and just DO it with all you've got!"

" Whatever the mind can conceive, can be achieved."

- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

.. and absolutely ANYTHING is possible."

As Jesus Christ said 2000 years ago,
"Total faith can even move a mountain".

"Without a vision, the people perish"
- the Bible

"We can all use the internet to reach out to the 'global community' and
build a better world in this new "Information Revolution" that is upon us.
Just make a SMALL DIFFERENCE. Let's use it wisely, respect our diversity
and unique cultures; yet celebrate a new world in union. One where,
like your founding forefathers in America, you can first celebrate the
Independance Day of the strong burning creative spirit that lies within
each one of us. If set alight, it is a flame that will burn brightly for future
generations on this planet... and perhaps even make your personal
VISION of the future a REALITY."

P.S:

What will your grand-children one day be saying about you and
what you were doing in the early days of the INFORMATION AGE?

Could that perhaps be your "unique destiny" and the legacy that
you leave on this planet?
