Recently I was reading Robert H. Schuller’s book entitled ‘The Be Happy Attitudes’ on a flight, and I came across the Possibility Thinker’s Creed. Candidly, I thought that was a good motivational piece for an entrepreneur, though Robert used it in the context of happiness and general life. Let me reproduce that creed below.
When faced with a mountain
I will not quit!
I will keep on striving,
until I climb over,
find a pass through,
or simply stay and turn
the mountain into a gold-mine-
with God’s help
I simply started musing about how relevant this creed was to all entrepreneurs. To be a successful entrepreneur you need to be a go-getter. You need to be ready to face mountains while smiling. You need to be resilient, tenacious and audacious (reminds me of Barack Obama’s Audacity of Hope – quite a nice piece).
So, what lessons can an entrepreneur learn from this creed? Let’s take a look.
For a swift close now, my advice to you is this. From now on, never ignore The Possibility Thinker’s Creed! OK?
Until then – best wishes to you as you apply the above lessons in your enterprise.
