Think, when you were a KID.
Everything was POSSIBLE.
You put a BLANKET over your back, then you became SUPERMAN.
You take your mom’s BROOM and ride on it, then you became a WITCH.
You climb up the TREE, not knowing that you might fall.
You simply MADE IT.
You just had an IDEA and made it happen because YOU BELIEVED.
You were then CREATIVE with strong BELIEF.
As you became an ADULT, things seem to be a little DIFFERENT.
When you failed in your EXAM, you think –
“I can NEVER make it.”
When you have a BRILLIANT marriage proposal, then you think –
“Maybe it’s NOT the right time.”
When you want to start a BUSINESS, you think –
“Maybe it’s NOT as easy.”
When you are ALREADY in the BUSINESS, you hear someone say –
“Do NOT take risks.”
Then, when you have a BRILLIANT IDEA idea that…
… can create more JOBS for poorer nations,
… can provide better LIVING for more people,
… can make our nation PROUD,
… can help the GROWTH of our nation,
… and can create a better WORLD.
And you said –
“I’m NOT SURE.”
You are still CREATIVE but with more DOUBT.
Then YEARS LATER, you heard someone had the same idea as yours.
What makes him DIFFERENT from you?
He puts his IDEA into reality.
He’s the “Most Promising Creative Young Entrepreneur of the Year”
His ACTION won him this recognition.
Then you start to think, “How I WISH I had taken ACTION years ago.”
THINK when you were a KID.
If that idea came by when you were still a KID, could you have taken ACTION?
When back then, you strongly BELIEVED.
It is never too late… you just need to have an IDEA and make it happen.
You still CAN… if you BELIEVE.

Wow! If this kind of writing greets you in the morning, it makes you want to really take that leap. Thanks, Fitz for educating us and for continuously bringing your readers/entrep-wannabes hope and inspiration. 🙂 Please keep it up!
You’re my hero. I just started investing last week and I’m already finding more ways to increase my investment.
I will never ever look back at my old habits of spending like there’s no tomorrow.
We all can if only we take that dreaded first step forward. To us who are willing to take the plunge towards being financially free and to you Sir who keeps inspiring and motivating others… Kudos!!!
