Recent studies suggest a multitude of entrepreneurial influences, grounded on a number of theoretical paradigms. As a starting point, entrepreneurial outcomes are viewed as lying along a continuum which separates low and high performances in entrepreneurship, which are then envisioned to be associated with high and low barriers.
A young lady sat in a public transport: an old grumpy lady came and sat by her as she bumped into her with her numerous bags. The other neighbor got upset, asking the young lady why she did not protest and insist on her rights: she responded with a smile: "It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant!' I'll alight at the next stop, replied the young lady".
A poor boy who was begging from door to door
to feed his hungry stomach, decided he would
ask for a meal at next house. However, at the
next house he lost his nerve when a lovely young
girl opened the door. So instead of a meal, he
asked for a glass of water.
The girl thought, he looked hungry. So, she
brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it
slowly, & asked thereafter : 'how much do I owe
you for this ? You don't owe me anything, she
replied. Mother has taught us never to accept
pay for kindness. He said, then I thank you from
the bottom of my heart.
Years later, that girl (now a woman) became
critically ill, and the local doctors tried their
possible best to save her life but they couldn't
cure her. They finally sent her to the big city
where specialists studied her rare illness. Dr.
Kelly was called in for the consultation, when he
heard the name of the town where she came
from, a strange light filled his eyes.
Immediately, he rose & went down the hall of
the hospital to her room. He recognised her at
once. He went back to the consultation room
determined to do his best to save her life.
From that day, he gave special attention to
that case. After a long struggle, the battle
was won and the woman was cured. Dr. Kelly
requested the business office to pass her final
bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then
wrote something on the bill and It was sent to
The woman feared opening it cos she was sure it
might take the rest of her life savings to pay
for it . Finally she looked at it and noticed
something was written at the edge of the note,
'Paid In Full With a Glass of Milk'. Tears filled
her eyes as she immediately remembered.
Every form of kindness you show is never in
vain, it reproduces itself. Well, not necessarily
before your eyes, but it always does. I've been
kind to you by sharing this story. And U be kind
to share it with others.
Its good to be good. Always be nice: It will
come back to you.*

Ezra and Thomas joined a company together a few months after their graduation from university.
After a few years of work, their Manager promoted Ezra to a position of Senior Sales Manager, but Thomas remained in his entry level Junior Sales Officer position.
Thomas developed a sense of jealousy and disgruntlement, but continued working anyway.
One day Thomas felt that he could not work with Ezra anymore.
He wrote his resignation letter, but before he submitted it to the Manager, he complained that Management did not value hard working staff, but only promoted only the favoured!
The Manager knew that Ezra worked very hard for the years he had spent at the company; even harder than Thomas and therefore he deserved the promotion.
So in order to help Thomas to realize this, the Manager gave Thomas a task.
“Go and find out if anyone is selling water melons in town?”
Thomas returned and said, "yes there is someone!"
The Manager asked, "how much per kg?"
Thomas drove back to town to ask and then returned to inform the Manager; "they are 13.50 per kg!"
The Manager told Thomas,
"I will give Ezra the same task that I gave you. Please pay close attention to his response!"
So the Manager said to Ezra, in the presence of Thomas;
“Go and find out if anyone is selling water melons in town?”
Ezra went to find out and on his return he said:
"Manager, there is only one person selling water melons in the whole town.
The cost is 49.00 each water melon and 32.50 for a half melon.
He sells them at 13.50 per kg when sliced. He has in his stock 93 melons, each one weighing about 7kg.
He has a farm and can supply us with melons for the next 4 months at a rate of 102 melons per day at 27.00 per melon; this includes delivery.
The melons appear fresh and red with good quality, and they taste better than the ones we sold last year.
He has his own slicing machine and is willing to slice for us free of charge.
We need to strike a deal with him before 10am tomorrow and we will be sure of beating last year's profits in melons by 223 000.00.
This will contribute positively to our overall performance as it will add a minimum of 3.78% to our current overall sales target.
I have put this information down in writing and is available on spreadsheet.
Please let me know if you need it as I can send it to you in fifteen minutes."
Thomas was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and Ezra.
He decided not to resign but to learn from Ezra.

You may have considered the prospect of starting your own business many times before. The thought of being your own boss – calling the shots, being responsible for your own financial rewards – is very alluring. You may have had the drive, the experience, and the financial resources necessary to succeed. The only thing stopping you were figuring out what type of business you should start.
1. Legalities - business form: proprietorship, partnership, and corporation. The licenses or permits you will need.
2. Business type: merchandizing, manufacturing or service.
3. What your product or service is.
4. Is it a new independent business, a takeover, an expansion, a franchise?
5. Why your business will be profitable. What are the growth opportunities? Will franchising impact on growth opportunities?
6. When your business will be open (days, hours)?
7. What you have learned about your kind of business from outside sources (trade suppliers, bankers, other franchise owners, franchiser, publications).

Then the guy started running with his
shirt full of blood.Those who were

He ran to the house of a Christian man, knocked and said,
"Can u please hide me, i have killed a person and people are chasing me."
The Christian man replied ,
"Where am i going to hide you in my one room
The muderer said "There is no time to
waste here, just think of anywhere you
can hide me."
After a long thinking, the Christian man
said to the murderer,
"Give me your shirt and take my shirt but remember to keep my shirt clean"
They exchanged their shirts.Then as
soon as the Christian man opened the
door, people started beating him and
was badly injured that he was taken to
the police station.
From police station, the case was taken
to court and the man was found guilty of
murder and was sentenced to death.
The real murderer was safe at home but
was feeling so guilty that he ran to the
Court and said,
"Can you please release that innocent man, am the real murderer".
The judge replied "unfortunately it's too
late, the man is already hanged at last".
He ran to the police where the man was
hanged and for sure he
found him dead hanging.
He knelt down and cried his eyes out and said to himself, " You paid for my crime"
He remembered the Christian's last
"KEEP MY SHIRT CLEAN !!!"
That's how the murderer repented and
became a christian!

I found this interesting …
Before you cook beans you go through a selection process in which all the seemingly bad beans are thrown away so only the good beans remain for cooking.
However, when rain comes, the bad beans you threw away in the backyard become seeds, germinate and grow into beautiful crops, with luscious leaves.
From them come plenty of bean seeds and the very same person who judged and threw them away will pluck the leaves and seeds for a healthy meal.
You may be judged, despised and discarded today, but, who knows, the same people judging you will turn to you in your moment of glory.
Do not curse yourself when the world look down on you. Your rain could be a matter of time. Your germination moment could just be around the corner!.Stay focused on your life goals and give your job the best. The best is yet to come.!
