Recently a friend visited me. She was impressed by my new home, which was considerably bigger than the previous home I used to rent. I took her around the house and into a children’s play room which I also use for the children’s reading club I run every Saturday morning. She asked me one question that got me thinking, “Would you have thought about running the reading club if you still lived in that small place?” Maybe, I am not sure since I always loved books.
But one thing I realised is that just having the space to do it got my creative mind going. Sometimes we need to create room for opportunities to come. This may just mean travelling to a place you have never been to or talking to new people or in my case building a home. Taking yourself out of your comfort zone can open up new opportunities and ideas you never thought of. That is the idea behind the entrepreneurship camps where we take people out of the comforts of their home to some nice quiet place, often holiday homes, where they can begin to dream, think of possibilities and revive forgotten passions. Give yourself a challenge to do something different, visit a new place, read a good book or meet new people and create new opportunities for yourself.
