A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

Exposed: 11 big myths about successful entreprenuers

Posted in Business, For Entreprenuers Only, Motivational with tags , on March 5, 2012 by HaZiQ aLi

Before we begin, the BIGGEST myth of them all is that… entrepreneurship does NOT mean you own a business!

Entrepreneurship is simply “exploiting opportunities (to serve) without regard to resources currently controlled.” We make this distinction in all our teachings- and the only place Harvard and i differ (but its huge) are those two words I put in parentheses. If you want to start a business that will last, if you want financial freedom: SOLVE. A. Problem. Your only job security is to make yourself irreplaceable. The easiest way to become successful is to make yourself valuable.

1. To Be A Successful Entrepreneur You Must Invent Something Truly Novel. Wrong, but I doubt facts will stop achievement-obsessed upper-class parents from building “replica garages” for their kids’ play dates, to instill in them whatever made Hewlett & Packard and Jobs & Wozniak do what they did. Big Error! Why? Ask yourself what Sir Richard Branson invented, then remind yourself that Ted Turner didn’t invent TV news, all he did was perfect it and disseminate it (via CNN) brilliantly.

Entrepreneurs who build better mousetraps are the exception, not the rule. Most business builders look at the world, see things that can be improved upon, break the mold, and add value. They prod, poke, and push paradigms, infinitely more often than they cause cataclysmic shifts. Take the crème-filled cookie, now 100 years old: Everyone thinks that Oreo invented it because it dominates the market niche. Nope, it was Hydrox. Oreo was a Johnnie-come-lately to the game – but owing to better marketing and, some claim, a better recipe, Oreo now owns the space.

Believed to have been born on March 2, 1904- Dr Suess has quite a story & I figured his bday was as good a time as any to share…

Dr. Seuss’ personal story is one of perseverance. He started
his career as a cartoonist, transitioned into advertising and
eventually�and lucky for us! �became a children’s book
author. For three decades, it was advertising that paid the
bills. It was really his 13th book, The Cat in the Hat, that put
him on the map.
