Creativity brings you happiness. It will create jobs. It is a safer path to future stability of a society.
In the chapter called after the incubation stage I have a section called talents are not required but passion is. Mother Teresa once said: "In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love."
I strongly believe passion is radioactive. Passion is also purifying. Once you observe someone else’s passion you will instantly purify.
In this book my purpose is to to engineer motivation in fostering creativity, innovations, and entrepreneurship. Self employment is not really what I am looking for. In fact entrepreneurship is not necessarily self employment.
To benefit from this book, you don’t necessarily need to quit your job and start your own business. If you did, I hope you succeed and I wish you the best, but that is really not the intention of this book. In the chapter called After Incubation Stage, we discuss how to be an effective entrepreneur at your current job in a corporation or small business.
This book is not about creating a business plan or the money you need to make it happen. This book is about ingredients of motivation, passion, creativity and innovation that will lead to entrepreneurship. About 22 years ago I invented the Ultrasonic Back Up Sensor that is now standard on almost every SUV or high standard vehicles. At the time of this invention I had a need for it, because I was a USER of my car. The concept of USERS is the main idea behind entrepreneurship which will be explained in detail in the chapter called Incubation Stage.
Why do some people, but not others, recognize or create new opportunities? Why do some decide to "take the plunge" and proceed, exerting vigorous efforts to convert their ideas and dreams into reality?
The answer perhaps is "How?", or " With what motivation?".
Informal observation suggests that entrepreneurs are, indeed, different from other people in terms of their personal traits. For instance, it has been—and still is—widely assumed that entrepreneurs are far above average in their willingness to take risks, their desire to excel, their personal optimism, their tolerance for ambiguity, and in their powerful preference for shaping their own destiny.
