Today, I had a warm chat with one of my new-found friends – a young adult lady in her last year at the university. As I encouraged her to be enterprising, entrepreneurial and make things happen, she intimated that she had no capital to help in the venture. Well, this is what most of us say and allow to stop us from progressing.
I thus share with you part of what I wholeheartedly shared with her:
“Capital is not ONLY money – as we have been taught to think! Capital is:
- Money (financial capital),
- Brain (mental capital),
- Relationships and friends (Social capital),
- Phone Contacts (E-capital),
- The house you sleep in even if rented (Premise capital),
- And even the dress you are putting on right now, because you can sell it before you sleep and start a business tomorrow morning!
So, liberate your perspective to capital and simply start with whatever you have from wherever you are to do whatever you can for whoever you can find. That is how we all began…! How about this?”
She then replied: “Wow! I really had a narrow thinking on what capital is, this is a very good encouragement. Thank you.”
To that, I said, in part: “Welcome. Capital simply means any resource you can use to expand your means. So, there we have it… I share this with very many close friends. You now enter the circle today…!”
So, there we have it! YOU HAVE THE CAPITAL ALREADY.
Comment as you wish…
