Working on fundamentals, in any sport, is not only important in terms of understanding what skill sets are necessary, but also helps athletes fine-tune their abilities.
In addition to the basics, athletic hopefuls need to play their game of choice to better understand what it takes to become a top player. It goes without saying, an aspiring athlete who dreams of playing on a professional stage will never reach the level of competition they desire by solely focusing on the fundamentals.
To become a major player you fine-tune abilities with fundamentals, and then take those skills onto the playing field.
True learning comes from playing the sport. Playing helps athletes better understand what areas of their performance they need to work on and what success entails.
The same concept goes for aspiring entrepreneurs.
TAKING THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST
Many have dreams of running their own business; however struggle to more forward out of fear. Not the fear of long hours or amount work, but the fear of failure and feeling ill prepared.
Many talk a big game, but when the moment arrives to take the field, they choose to return to the practice field, waiting for this right moment to arrive; a point in time when they've successfully mastered all the necessary skills and knowledge to begin their venture.
However, big plans and ideas don't evolve without experience.
Studying, researching, and taking a few college classes may lay a nice foundation for an aspiring entrepreneur, however if they never set foot on the court, the reality of one day running their own company will be nothing more than a figment of their imagination.
Becoming an entrepreneur involves more than passion and education, it involves courage; the courage to take the field and face the giants who stand in their way.
