Well rested, great sleep, fresh air and sunshine – day of things to do, time for some play, time for some work, time for looking at blank canvas (or screen, or wall, or ceiling or out the living room window) to see that any picture can be painted there. Executing that painting is another matter – the thinking part, the planning part, the dreaming parts don’t require any capital at all.
Too often people with promising ideas lament their unfulfilled dreams or lack of capital, when most likely they are short on belief and commitment. If idea, plan and desire are strong enough, money can be found. There is usually a mountain of money out there seeking the greatest ideas, but mostly ideas connected to committed people.
Not so much a matter of self-confidence as willingness to leap.
