The word success can be traced back to the bible. After the creation of mankind, He said “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground”. We saw from that biblical verse that God himself destined mankind for success (Reigning in Life) but in our contemporary world today, a lot of people are struggling to make ends meet.
Living in a world where there is job insecurity, people getting laid off their jobs on daily basis, a world filled with under employment, graduate having no job and no future. You need to act now.

The answer to all this questions is for you to become an Entrepreneur. The desire to learn about entrepreneurship, self-employment, and/or business ownership will be the foundation you need for your success. First I would like to you to know that an entrepreneur is a person of a very high aptitude who pioneers change, possessing characteristics found in a very small fraction of the human race. An entrepreneur can further be defined simply as anyone who wants to work for himself or herself, that is, being your own boss. Becoming an entrepreneur is a fruitful journey to embark upon. This article is explicitly focused on how you can get started.
The first thing to do as an entrepreneur is to think. Thinking? Yes! Thinking is the number one thing you have to engage yourself in. Use more of your leisure thing to think out how you can add color to the lives of others. Thinking of how you can help out in a particular need of mankind and when such though continues for some times, it becomes pregnant and gives birth to ideas. Ideas rule the world as we all know. It is your ideas now that gives you an edge over other people because we all are different individuals and see things differently from our own angle. That’s what makes those ideas so unique. These ideas bring about innovations.
I would like you to know that ideas don’t fall from the sky. You have to input some amount of your time into this. You need to pursue information and knowledge. Make a lot of research and I bet you, sooner than later, you will become a database of ideas. Information is very paramount to an entrepreneur because that is the only way you can come about a novel product or still incorporate new functionality into existing products and have an edge over your potential competitors.
Information resources on entrepreneurship could be talking directly to business owners and asking questions, reading books and magazines, going to seminars, and using online resources–websites, free podcasts, etc. And when you finally translate your idea into a product, what next?
Wealth is created when such innovations results in new demand. But note making it in life as an entrepreneur is not something that is instantaneous but can be achieved with time depending on your idea, product and method of implementation. That is why the place of information can never be underestimated if you really want to be a successful entrepreneur. Remember when you are not informed, you are deformed. I will highlight in my next article.
