The Story Entrepreneurs Need To Hear

Every episode of life begins with a story, whether good, bad or ugly. But certain stories can be rewritten and retold in a way that’ll make sense. Let’s begin with a story then.

One old poor man living in a dilapidated madhouse decided to be wealthy. His thoughts and wishes defied the laws of common sense, seeing he had nothing to start with. Meanwhile in their superstitious neighborhood was a haunted cave no one dared to go near. Old poor wretched man started his journey of freedom with the haunted cave.

Now, before I go any further, may I say this, that individuals who desire to make something good happen in their lives have a risky obligation to keep with a risky obsession. Entrepreneurship is about conceiving an idea bigger than the impossible and boldly publishing it in the palms of the universe bit by bit. Regardless of the enormity of the idea, you’ve got to start from somewhere. You have to start small. You start small by developing an obsession for the idea and be straight forward with yourself first.

… individuals who desire to make something good happen in their lives have a risky obligation to keep with a risky obsession.

Determining to move forward, you must cleave to the notion that the biggest achievements always lie in haunted facilities where fear, rejection, insufficiency and failure wait to devour your idea. Till we decide to fight for the dream we conceive we simply run a treadmill. All strength is deployed and yet we go nowhere.

Before I continue with the story, let me tell you who an entrepreneur is not. An entrepreneur is not a rich guy with companies, assets, cars and houses, and probably doing well financially. Well, an entrepreneur is anyone who can conceive an idea, develop a risky obsession for the idea and hawk his way through to success. Now start rounding up the rich guys and tell me if you cannot get there too?

Oh my story! Let’s make this story make sense by creating a happy ending. Shall we?

Gleaning from the Holy Bible, a group of ostracized leprosy striken men decided to enter a city that condemned them to death. They were going there for food in the midst of a great famine. Staying outside the city was hunger going to kill them, and going into the city was their death by stoning or something of a sort yet they entered the city and to their amazement the city they dreaded was empty with abundant food. (read 2 Kings 7:3-8)

In spite of their slim chances of survival, the outcasts got their risky obsession intact and weren’t disappointed thereafter. The old poor man living in the dilapidated madhouse represents “raw” individuals without any risky obsession to be successful.

Take my counsel now! The word “impossible” is a mere superstition to becoming great, so get up, and make things happen!

Anyways, the old man found the treasure of ages which changed his life forever. Blessings.
