This time topic seems to be very interesting, but it is not about the National Geographic: World of Animal or Safari retreat. I had a great conversation with one of my peers, Allan 'Big Al' Connolly, The City Mayor of Perth Entrepreneur Cafe, Australia when all this idea to write, coming right into me. Indeed, an empowering conversation that sparked and discussed values, ideas, sustainability and potential work to be done.
What is all about the Giraffe talk with Entrepreneurship? A new code? A new Apps? Trend or business venture?
From my entreprenologist's view, Entrepreneurship is an eco-system where entrepreneurs cultivate a positive environment, nurturing great human values, spread positivity and get connected well among other entrepreneurs and the world at large, along the way in making money & creating more job-opportunities. In pursuit of making money and fame in business, one of the greatest challenges is to loose our human values. Nurturing the values takes all of our life, but to loose and 'sell our soul to the Devil', it takes a minute. How ironic life can turn out to be!
It is very important every individual who would like to endeavour themselves in entrepreneurship, to set their intention correct and clear on why they want to be an entrepreneur. That intention is the brightest endless 'bulbing light' to the rest of the journey to the entrepreneur's success. Every entrepreneurs need to comprehend, entrepreneurship without values is like a human without a soul. What will happen to the eco-system when there is no values? Definitely, everything becomes chaotic. Business people are getting greedy, we take what is not belong to us, we consume excessively and go after what we don’t need, we manipulate and oppress others, we always want to be in control without knowing how to share, we get-rid of people who dim our limelight, super pretentious character, 'big fish eats small fish' and so on. Hence, that is why we need to view entrepreneurship seriously not from the angle of profitable stream but different level of global eco-system with profound influence in nurturing human values to world community at large.
Entrepreneurs should create a positive eco-system with the support from other entrepreneurs, clients, followers or even community around who believe the same values and path to build a progressive business circle and environment for a better future. There might be obstacles from time to time like you are not going to be popular to compare to those who believe wearing luxurious cars or branded price-tag handbags are everything, but there will be a group of amazing and successful global citizen out there who would come and support your value cause to become a big next thing in the entire world! You think you are alone in what you believe in when most of the average people are doing, busy pleasing others and chasing the same ordinary way, but you don’t realize that values you hold is shining like a diamond, attracting the same diamond lovers around the globe. This is what we say ' A Giraffe sees another Giraffe above all the trees around'. Be that Giraffe! :-)
If you think you have the great human values, don't hold back to show to the world the difference through what you do in the entrepreneurship. We need more 'humanizing human' to become entrepreneurs than 'money-digger' without a soul. The least, I can assure entrepreneurship will be a better and happy environment to be involved in to each and everyone of you!
