For the Entrepreneurs
Scott had to give up his entrepreneurial dream as his wife threatened to divorce him if he left his steady job. There are many sources of discouragement to entrepreneurship goals. To quote Thomas Alva Edison, "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
Do any of these names ring a bell: Bill Gates (Microsoft), Larry Ellison (Oracle) or Steve Jobs (Apple Computer)? They are none other than the successful entrepreneurs of our era who built international powerhouses of their small business.
Steve Jobs did not have an easy life. He was an orphan, adopted by a poor family. He never finished college. Jobs had a vision and an innovative idea to change the world. Arunachalam Muruganantham, a school dropout from a poor family in southern India revolutionised the life of rural women in developing countries by inventing a simple machine. There are many more inspirational stories about entrepreneurs with very humble beginnings who turned ubiquitous.
Are you that lone crusader ready to accept the risks innate in the game, and the rewards as and when they come? Do you have that fire in your belly and the hope to achieve success? If you want to become a self-made man and help improve the society, then entrepreneurship is the way to go.
Entrepreneurs are not born different. An entrepreneur always think and act different in-order to stand out in this competitive world. All successful entrepreneurs never take a “NO” for an answer. Believe that everything is possible and there is a solution to each and every problem. We can nurture an entrepreneurial mindset by noting down the problems we encounter on a daily basis, or that we read about in the media. Train to become an issue spotter, and jot down solutions. Then think about ones that can be taken forward to the next step.
A working brain to change the world, and total commitment and dedication to face all challenges in your endeavour is all you need to become a successful entrepreneur. If you are into entrepreneurship with a passion in what you are doing, then the road to riches will open on its own. If you have faith in yourself and a mindset to serve our community, go ahead with your passion, success will follow soon.
