I encourage you to begin whatever project you've been putting off right now, and make your mark on the world.

A brand new video from Find the Edge expert panellist, Chris Payne, has revealed how businesspeople can instantly find motivation to get started on new projects.

The video sees Payne himself describing his own, unusual source of inspiration - a short children's tale called 'The Dot'.

Written by Peter H Reynolds, it tells the story of a young girl who feels self-conscious and unhappy about her artistic skills. By painting a single dot on a canvas, she is inspired to continue creating and improving her paintings.

Payne transfers this story to a business context saying: "We all know how frustrating it is to have an unfulfilled ambition that we can never find the motivation to complete.

"Whether it’s writing a book, starting a blog, or simply beginning a new business project – taking the first step is half the battle.

"As the famous Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, 'every journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step'. So, I encourage you to begin whatever project you've been putting off right now, and make your mark on the world."

The full inspirational video can be viewed on Find the Edge's website at:

Find the Edge founder, Kenny Goodman Said: "The Dot is a charming story that teaches a great lesson - applicable to all ages.

"Chris explains how it has helped him complete aims and aspirations, and how you too can use it to achieve your goals."

Chris Payne ran his own company, called Life Tools, for 17 years, creating many business DVDs and CDs along the way. He now works as a consultant, helping a variety of companies turn ideas into products. More about him can be found here:
