The beauty of proactivity

You have a dream, an ambition, a vision that you believe is reasonable and will be accepted in the market. And you start taking steps in the direction to make that dream come true. Despite any number of initial setbacks you keep working and pretend that what you are doing is absolutely normal (though at the back of your mind you know that you are doing something extraordinary (not abnormal)) and believe that you can make that dream come true. That is the essence of proactivity. This is exactly what Bill Gates did and Steve Jobs did and any successful entrepreneur does. You need to dream up big things and push yourself and people to make that dream come true. Its not absolutely nessecary that your dream be as brilliant as Edison's idea of creating a bulb but the trick is to be proactive and have a genuine desire to serve the people by creating great products/services.

"Whatever the mind of man can concieve and believe, it can achieve."
Napoleon Hill

"Great men are those who see that thoughts rule the world"
Ralph Waldo Emerson
