Into action


Into action



A great idea without execution has no value! Entrepreneurship is when you act upon opportunities and ideas and transform them into value for others. To transform ideas into value requires concrete action. This means you have to move, go for it and take action to make things happen, to realize your dream, to feel success, to create value for yourself, your surroundings, your community or even for the world. 

This Into Action Playlist is one of the 3 learning playlist we developed to help you create awareness, activate, train and develop a entrepreneurial mind, attitude and skills.

This playlist includes activities to support you to understand what it takes to go into action or realize things and the skills/steps you need to know about and go through to make sure you succeed. 

The activities on this playlist are based on Entrecomp (The Entrepreneurship Competence Framework) The  Entrecomp framework identifies entrepreneurial competences which are seen as transversal competence. Transversal competences are competences that applies to all spheres of life: from nurturing personal development, to actively participating in society, to (re)entering the job market as an employee or as a self-employed person, and also to starting up ventures (cultural, social or commercial). This competence model is used to define the Open Badges that you can earn during this learning playlist.

Take up Challenges

Facing challenges is never easy. There are some real challenges many of us face – at work, at home, in relationships, with money, with family, in the world, and much more. When it comes to dealing with difficulty, the question in life isn’t whether or not we’ll face challenges. The question is, what will we do and how will we respond when they arise. On our path of life, growth, and success, we all encounter difficulties. The road to success is full of lessons from failure, making mistakes, and facing challenges. You cannot succeed if you don’t experience failure. It’s how you deal with failure that determines how successful you can be.

Challenges can be amazing learning experiences – things that force you to grow and change. Many of the most successful and fulfilled people who’ve ever walked the planet have faced incredible obstacles. But they learned how to make a comeback, after they fell.
Our ability to appreciate difficulties, learn from them, and use them to our advantage gives us an important insight into who we are and how to create success and fulfillment consciously and deliberately.
