You can shoot HD footage on your phone to craft a feature film.
You can write a novel or a business plan or learn a new language through free apps and computer programs.
You can create a website -- like this one -- with e-commerce capabilities, social media integration, and email lists to build a platform.
All the tools are available through everyday technology and inexpensive consumer goods. The templates and structures are there. The knowledge is free.
However, people often utilise a different kind of tool in their day-to-day lives.
A fear of failing. A fear of stepping out of their comfort zone. And a fear of "putting yourself out there".
And guess what? Fear is a depreciating asset.
You can't afford to ignore the tools around you any longer. The economies of tomorrow doesn't need more devices, systems or matrixes.
The commodity of the future relies on ideas that spread and grow.
Good ideas nurture and engage people's attention. With this attention come the eyes, ears, and voices of society.
But here's the secret: you have to start. Not tomorrow. Today. This minute.
You don't have to spend a lot of money. You can do it for free. For one hour a day. On a bus-ride home. Start with what you have. Compromise, scale-back (yes, not up), and use your own unique network around you.
Don't do it for the money. Do it to spread your ideas. The rest will follow.
In today's globalised world, there are no more excuses. The world has never been more open, more connected, more ready for the ideas you have to offer. The only difference between success and failure will be between the fearless and the fearful.
So admit it. Stop reading. Start.
