Think Outside the Box
Most projects require some amount of money in order to be successful, but money is merely a medium of exchange. Think outside the box. We may not need actual cash, but we do need something of value to exchange for the resources we need to invest in our dreams. What is it that you have to offer? Everyone has natural or acquired gifts and talents and the greatest tool you have to get the resources you need is your creativity and imagination. Some people quit or postpone going after their dreams because they just think about cash and cash alone. Below are a few questions you can ask to stimulate your thinking about attracting the resources you need.
- Have you ever thought about bartering? That’s how people used to do thing in the past before we got so dependent on greenbacks and plastic.
- Is there someone else that has a similar goal that you can share the costs with?
- What talents do you have that can bring in the resources you need?
If none of these ideas work for you, consider getting together with a master-mind group and brainstorming on your project to come up with some creative ideas. Who knows, there might be a less expensive course of action and you might be closer to your goals than you think!
