“The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.” – Tom Bodett
Do you believe entrepreneurs are “just talented” and assume that “you either have it or you don’t?”
Perhaps you were told most of your life that you were “not realistic enough” and instead you need “to go to school and get a good education” if you want to be successful.
The word “Entrepreneur” comes from the Middle French verb “Entreprendre” which means “to begin something; undertake”.
An entrepreneur can be defined as a person with great, innovative ideas. Someone with vision who identifies a need and is willing to risk turning their thoughts into a product or service to fill that specific need.
“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” – Jim Rohn
The truth is, we all possess innate creativity, innovation and brilliance to be a successful entrepreneur. However, our willingness to trust our gift, take risk and think outside the box is often discouraged as we are
taught to conform, pass tests and become proficient at memorizing and regurgitating information. Entrepreneurs are those who have reconnected to their innate creative spirit and understand that it takes diligence, persistence, hard work, struggles and failures to be creative and to achieve business success.
