Those who run successful businesses or companies do not work only for the purpose of eating three meals a day. If that were the case, they wouldn’t have to struggle to run such a large business or company. Such people overcome various obstacles and continue to expand their business because they find immense creative pleasure in their business.
Those who do not work with a creative attitude in their business but only do so for the purpose of being able to eat three meals a day will most assuredly fail. Such people lack creativity, which keeps them from self-improvement and makes them feel inferior.
Friend, there is this saying that where there is a WILL there will always Save be a WAY. The moment that you make the decision that it is wealth that you desire, the way will be opened and your search will begin and eventually wealth will come running to you. So if it is wealth that you desire, then I urge you to make the decision and change the way that you view the world so that you can be able to see the world in its true color.
Don’t give up easily under any circumstances, but go forward with a progressive way of thinking. Don’t let traditions and old ways of doing things become a hindrance. You must abandon them and let new ideas and creativity become your new wings. When you do so, you will find your life and business bearing abundant fruit. The few who have decided to work and plan a system for the accumulation of wealth, are those ones who rise to the level of greatness and are the envy of the majority of the people in the society. However, these people have prepared themselves to build and work their system with one goal in mind and that is to build wealth. Friend, this opportunity is available to all who desire it. All who make the decision to step out of the box, the reward of wealth is sure to overtake them.
Know for sure that it is your creativity that will take you down the road to a better next month, a better future for your business. Don’t ever say, “It can’t be done.” If you are stuck in some problems, think of new ways to free yourself. When you so readily proclaim, “impossible,” you will only block your imagination and the power of your creativity from removing the obstacle.
Friend, creative thinking and invention has nothing to do with ones race, gender, religion, culture or country. It has nothing to do with your level of education or whether you were an A student or an F student in school. To step out of the box only takes a decision on your part. And so in your quest to become an inventor consider everything that you see, feel and experience in your surrounding with a different attitude. Analyze everything for its quality, quantity, price, convenience, looks, and the needs of past, present, and future users. Invention as you have seen does not always have to start from scratch. Things sometimes just need to be improved, and people would be willing to pay a great deal of money for the improvements that give them satisfaction.
Henry Ford and Thomas Edison are good examples. Ford was an illiterate but invented the Ford Motor. Thomas Edison with less than three months of schooling became the world’s greatest inventor. He invented audio visual equipments and the incandescent light. If you want to give the world something that it will reward you for, begin on a quest to solve problems for others or to efficiently fill the needs of others. Remember friend, if you give enough people what they want, you will always get what you need want.
Friend, should you want to step out of the box, you must always have the courage to start something new. When you step back in surrender, even without making an attempt, you cannot expect something creative nor productive. You must always be willing to accept new ideas in your heart and mind. When someone presents a new idea to you, rather than immediately arguing about its merit and feasibility, you must first listen to the whole idea and give it some thoughts. Only such person can become one who dares to step out of the box and thinks creatively.
You do not need to be born with any special gifts or talents for you to be able to step out of the box and do something worthwhile so that you can reap the benefits just like the other great personalities before you. It all starts with desire. If you desire to step out of the box you can begin right now. To step out of the box will cost you absolutely nothing but the simple decision to step out. And once you decide to do so then your quest will begin. Stepping out of the box is no more than creativity. If you want to make a difference in life you must become creative. The world is waiting and looking for creative people because it is these people who provide the means to move us all forward.
You must always have a progressive way of thinking. It is only those who develop and improve themselves with a progressive way of thinking can stay ahead of others whether in politics, economics, education, culture or business. You must abandon your traditional ways of thinking. When it comes to human beings, there is no such thing as perfection. We can always be changed for the better. You must not let tradition bog you down but be ready to revolutionize your thoughts. When you are restrained by tradition, you will find yourself unable to change and become stagnant. With new ideas and thoughts you must be willing to make changes.
All the things that you need to be successful are right around you and all that you have to do is to tap into them. Everywhere that you go, make it a practice of listening to the complaints of the people that you meet. Friend, do not look at people complaining and turn your face away from them. They are your glorious opportunities because if you can solve their problems or satisfy their complaint, then definitely they will be more than happy to pay you for your service.
Do not get caught up in the way things have always been because that is the worst formula for failure. When people or businesses get comfortable that is the very time that they begin to quietly lose their customers who go to the supplier or businessman who has the eye of the tiger and who is hungry to get a share of the available millions that the market has to offer. The truth is that every dollar that a new business gets is a dollar that is lost from an old and complacent business.
Decide that you are not an average. The fact is that for you to be able to rise above what is seen to be the norm you will have to step out of the box. By “the box” we mean the way the normal people see and analyze things. The reality is that most people in the world look at the world from a negative point of view, or from the perspective of allowing others to make decisions for them as if they are not capable of doing it for themselves. To go along with what the world sees as being normal is to see the world in a color that is different from what it really is. Just because a majority of the people has the same opinion about the way that life is does not necessarily mean that they are right. Learn to see things different from the way others see them.
Dear reader, when you decide to step out of the box, you will be putting yourself in the position to give the world another step forward. The world is looking for people like you and will give you great wealth and honor because you dared to be different. In essence, a person who steps out of the box steps into a world of research. Once you begin to search, your view of the world will become totally different from that of the average person. Your mind power will begin to increase dramatically. Once your mind begins to change, then and only then, will you be able to change your own life and personal situation.
Friend, step out of the box today and use your creativity and you will find there is enough business for you right here in Liberia.
