You Are Either Problem Solver, Or Not Entrepreneur At All

First time entrepreneurs or young one like me, or most of us often ask this question to themselves, and people we meet around.

In the picture above is ‘Sharo‘ who for the first time is going to start her company.

And when she puts her questions before people who claim to have good experience in business. They answer it like this.

Or worse, here she is again:

Everyone is answering entirely from his/her own experience.

In this picture, she wants to learn what possible challenges, opportunities, and environment she will encounter on the road of entrepreneurship. Or in other words what advice you have for someone who’s thinking to cross the wall.

For answers, she goes to Tom, Ravi and David, all three of them have some experience in their fields.

Their answers are: TREES, MOUNTAINS and WATER.

Which means, Tom thinks she should learn how to survive in forests.

While Ravi believes, she must learn mountain climbing and how to survive in extreme hot and cold temprature.

And David recommends to focus on swimming and boating, which can help her to cross streams and rivers on her way.

What you think? What should she learn? Three of these skills, or every possible thing she can learn?

Here is what I think.

As a human or more specifically as an entrepreneur, we never know what challenges we shall have behind the wall of our comfortzone. And successful people have this one habit, they go behind the wall with a problem solving mindset and face everything on the way.

They do not assume specific environment, conditions, or challenges. Though each of them is jack of some trades, and master of one or two.

But this is their mindset which matters the most.

Today, I briefly talked with my team that, do not assume that all the challenges and opportunties will be the same as we percieve them now. Things are changing all the time, so does the challenges and opportunities which it brings.

Just make sure, you’ve allingned yourself well with the changes and you have this confidence that you shall solve every problem which would come between you and your destination.

Got it! Have problem solving mind? Oh WOW!

    “What we are trying to, in all these discussions and talks here, is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are, no the world does not explain it, but to understand it, to go into it, to examine it, give your heart and your mind and everything that you have to find out a way of living differently.

    But that depends on you and not somebody else, because in this there is no teacher, no pupil, there is no leader, there is no guru there is no master no saviour. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil, you are the master, you are the guru, you are the leader.

    You are everything.

    And to understand, is to transform what is.” – J. Krishnamurthy.

    The society has many good expectations from you buddy. If you believe, then you can. All the best.

    1. As long as the expectations come with a mindset of patience, then the real or unreal obstacles no matter where they occur can be mastered and not become your wall of solid, unmovable, unbending, streams of discouragement. Patience, Prayer, Postive- will deafeat many an enemy.

    Waqas i can sooooo relate with this quotation of yours. I,ve been working for almost two years now. To learn more i,ve been switching my companies. Though i,ve worked in the same Industry but the problems and challenges ve been different everywhere. Its my third job with same profile (production Manager). But i know if i switch to 4th or 5th company i cant be sure that i will be on the top of my game due to my previous work experience only.
    And i also believe that once i start working on my brand my experience with various fashion houses will help me to only in preventing few mistakes, And the challenges will be new everyday.
    Some how i am getting more comfortable in facing problems these days. So i am ready to make more mistakes and learn a lot more.
