” My grandmother once told me that the reason babies are born with their little hands tightly clenched is so they don’t drop their gift to the world. This is one “old lady’s tale” I choose to believe: the solution to every problem we have is in our children. We must do everything we can to protect them, and ensure they get an education, and develop skills to contribute of their gift to the world.”- Dr. Strive Masiyiwa
Our cultural lores have been riddled with such ‘packaged’ paradigms that for most people they have become truths .
My all time favorite is that of taking in too much palm oil and how you can get malaria in the process . I hear this and wonder if our Scientists have been accusing the Female Anopheles wrongly .
Sadly , most Entrepreneurs have built their businesses on the wrong tales( there is no money , business is VERY bad etc).
These TOXIC tales are usually the buffer for the toxic businesses we often see . Businesses that only serve self- interest with no VALUE whatsoever. (If you engage in Yahoo- Yahoo, REPENT before it’s too late lol)
I admire ENTREPRENEURS a lot and this is on their behalf . Next time you want to find a fanciful story or tale to sell them so they can close shop or forget about the nagging dreams of GREATNESS they battle with every night ,PLEASE be careful in your choice .
Let your tales be such that inspire faith , courage , confidence and a sense of value in them .
For the awesome Entrepreneurs and those who aspire to be Entrepreneurs some day :
I know you want to blow and make it BIG . It’s okay BUT you have to define what big means to you and STAY with your definition .
Even the snail made it to Noah’s Ark🐌
PS: This piece is not your VISA to small thinking and mediocre ambitions . The Snail could have stayed in its shell and counted it a BIG achievement.
Choose the ARK !
