Enterprising! – April 18.2011

An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal
and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An enterprising person is
one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new
housing development. An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity
in all areas of life. To be enterprising is to keep your eyes open and
your mind active. It’s to be skilled enough, confident enough, creative
enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities that present
themselves… regardless of the economy. A person with an enterprising
attitude says, “Find out what you can before action is taken.” Do your
homework. Do the research. Be prepared. Be resourceful. Do all you can
in preparation of what’s to come. Enterprising people always see the
future in the present. Enterprising people always find a way to take
advantage of a situation, not be burdened by it. And enterprising
people aren’t lazy. They don’t wait for opportunities to come to them,
they go after the opportunities. Enterprise means always finding a way
to keep yourself actively working toward your ambition. Enterprise is
two things. The first is creativity. You need creativity to see what’s
out there and to shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to
look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a
different approach, to be different. What goes hand-in-hand with the
creativity of enterprise is the second requirement: the courage to be
creative. You need courage to see things differently, courage to go
against the crowd, courage to take a different approach, courage to
stand alone if you have to, courage to choose activity over inactivity.
And lastly, being enterprising doesn’t just relate to the ability to
make money. Being enterprising also means feeling good enough about
yourself, having enough self worth to want to seek advantages and
opportunities that will make a difference in your future. And by doing
so you will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity and
your self-worth, your enterprising nature.
