The Good Stubborn

The Good Stubborn

According to people, there are some characteristics that an entrepreneur must have. Let me add on to the list — #stubborness, in a good way.

Look around you. There are those we label as super entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs and wannabe entrepreneurs. Super entrepreneurs always seem invincible. They seem to make everything look easy and having the Midas touch. To some they even seem a Hybrid of Avengers.

But ask any entrepreneurs, whatever category they may be. I bet each one of them will tell you that somewhere and some time in their journey, they have experienced pain, fear, rejection, doubts, fatigue, etc. You see, sometimes people forget that entrepreneurs are only human. The success and glory people see are the fruits. Back track on their journey and soon you will discover that they are no different from everyone else.

The negatives we cannot avoid but it should not be allowed to stumble us. The difference is the successful ones are those who see the negatives as a passing phase and not a destination. It is an opportunity to learn and grow.

So guys and gals, remember that you are only human. Don’t despair in times of difficulty. People before you have experienced and prevailed. Press on!


Cannot Tell Me Cannot

Cannot Tell Me Cannot

Hey, what is the meaning of this word #Cannot? Does not register in our vocabulary. Is it in your vocab?

Well, it is only a word but unfortunately most of us tend to refer to it in the negative, I.e. We cannot do this, we cannot do that, etc.

So how often has people told you that you cannot do ……. bla bla bla? Do you believe them? Who are they to tell us Cannot?

Personally, it is important to keep the word CANNOT in our vocab but perhaps it’s wise to tune down the volume. Let it be so soft that the word CANNOT won’t even be a whisper in your ears. Don’t let it hinder you from achieving your visions and dreams. Press on. God after all told us, “With Him all things are possible”. Do you believe?

Progression Not Instant

Progression Not Instant

The title tells it all. We are living in times of little patience. Everything has to happen in the blink of the eye — success, finances, fame, etc. While it is true that everything around us is happening faster and faster due to globalisation and a very competitive world, we cannot have #instant in everything.

Common sense tells us that a house cannot be built in a day, that is if you want a house with a solid foundation else it may not last the tests of strong winds and lashing rain, etc.

Similarly in life, including businesses, we have to adopt the stance of progression. Start from building a strong foundation then proceed from there, one step and a time. There are simply no short cuts. Of course there is always the adage easy come easy go.

Unless you are looking to eat instant noodles, riches and business are not built in day. Rome was not built in a day…..remember?

To all our NOW friends, NOW is good but not applicable to everything thing. It is just not possible.
