Becoming an Entrepreneur “Willy Wonka” Style

by Jan 10, 2020

“Come with me and you’ll be

In a world of pure imagination.

Take a look and you’ll see

Into your imagination.

We’ll begin with a spin

Traveling in

The world of my creation

What we’ll see

Will defy explanation.

Want to change the world?

There’s nothing to it.

There is no life I know,

To compare with pure imagination

Living there you’ll be free

If you truly wish to be.

If you want to view paradise

Simply look around and view it

Anything you want to, do it”

As a child, I would watch this movie and hear Gene Wilder sing this song but it really didn’t mean anything to me. I remember hearing this song as an adult (while my kids would watch this movie) and almost roll my eyes. Sure, Gene….we should all live in a world of pure imagination….NOT!

But there came a moment, a moment in my career and life that I realized…you can truly create what you see in your head. No, it isn’t instant and it isn’t always easy. And NO, you might not change the WHOLE world. BUT…it happens, it is worth it and it will change YOUR world.

Most adults lose their ability to dream and imagine. But when you take a moment….breathe….and just let your mind dream… it is STILL there! The dreams….the hopes….you are a creative at your core! The question then becomes….Will you look for ways to turn your wildest imaginations into reality? Willy Wonka did! From the musical locks to the lick-able wallpaper….it is only a dream until someone makes it real.

Why not you? If you are holding yourself back because…

You don’t have time.

You don’t have money.

You don’t know how.

You start anyway…you find the one thing you can do NOW and DO IT. Then you find the next thing and DO IT. Before long, you will want to sing and dance you way to your most PURE imagination!  Everything you see and touch, taste and smell was once in someone’s imagination. The world is waiting for the gift that is hidden in your imagination.
