I have come to understand entrepreneurship as a life journey, a journey with no specific starting point. It can begin anywhere, everywhere, anytime, and even now, anyhow. Lol
There are a lot of successful entrepreneurs I greatly admire, and I take time to study their biographies. I have even read a few MBAs too. Guess what? The stories are always almost the same. “They started from where they were.” And with what they had.
Some of them had a lot to start with, many of them had very little to start with. You don’t always have all you need to start, but you surely have something to start with. It could be a pen in your hand, your notepad or your phone. You could Start with that. Don’t you think so?
“True entrepreneurship has no definite destination, perhaps, that’s why it has no definite starting point.”
What truly matters for success as you journey through is your passion, diligence, persistence and consistency in creating value. And more importantly, do not ever listen to nay sayers.
Do you have a dream you aspire to pursue? Is there a business venture tinkling in your heart and you wish you could do something about it?
I wouldn’t want to start saying; “Go start” “Go start” “Go start” No! If you don’t want to start up, that’s ok. Maybe you are too scared to, or you think you don’t have what it takes, or bad still, you don’t have money. I understand. You can relax.
But if you ever overcome all of that, and you believe you are now ready to start up, this post is to let you know; you can start right where you are! With what ever you have. As John Obidi would say, “Use what you have, for what you have is plenty.” Better tools you need, you will find as you go along.
In order to fully ascertain this concept of “starting from where you are”, you may have to do some work from and in your inside. “A shift of mindset” paradigm. Make yourself understand that you can do anything you want to do. Tell yourself you can start right where you are now and succeed! Make yourself believe you. Allow your subconscious mind grab and absorb it. You can do anything you want to do. You can start from where you are now and succeed!
I guess I’m repeating this too much, but why shouldn’t I? I believe in you just as I believe in me. I believe in your success. I believe you can do this. And if you already have started, know that you are doing awesome! Like Dr Charles Akhimien rightly said; So long as you are improving on yourself, you are great! Be proud of your journey, be proud to tell your story.
There are no rules for starting, just start, experiment, fail, rise, succeed!!
