Leadership expert Orrin Woodward posted a very interesting article this week about the vision of an entrepreneur and the criticism they take for being outside the norm. Every entrepreneur looks for solutions to existing problems while the general population tends to simply complain about the issue.
In his article, Mr Woodward explains the 3 step process an entrepreneur follows to bring about change;
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Finally, it is accepted as self-evident.
Perhaps you have personally walked through this process to bring about a change in your workplace, your family, or even your own thoughts? One way an entrepreneur can strengthen her resolve to affect positive change is by leveraging the encouragement and experience of like-minded people, such as are found in a community of entrepreneurs. Learning from other successful people whether modern day or from times past will equip and empower the entrepreneur to step out of his comfort zone to deliver the solution.
Orrin Woodward provides a closing thought by quoting one of the most significant leaders to affect the history of a free world under siege.
Winston Churchill once said, “History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.” In the same way, history will be kind to LIFE for we intend to make it!
Today, like never before, there is tremendous opportunity to serve others. Cast your vision, fight against the status quo to offer better ideas to the marketplace and your vision will become reality. I encourage you to step out with boldness, write your own history, and be a world changer!
God Bless, John
