My definition of Entrepreneurship is “The recognition and pursuit of opportunity without regard to the resources you currently control, with confidence that you can succeed, with the flexibility to change course as necessary, and with the will to Rebound from Setbacks.” (This definition is primarily from Professor Howard Stevenson of Harvard Business School with some additions of mine.)
I like this definition as it evolves around action words and can apply to life outside of business as well. Words such as Recognition. . .Pursuit. . .Confidence. . .Flexibility. . and Will. It also is telling you to accept your current position in business or in life and to move forward now without any recriminations of should haves, could haves, or delays while hoping for additional resources.
I would like to share a five-minute video with you that illustrates these action words in a strong and inspirational way.
It is a beautiful and graceful ballet dance between two people, one who has one leg and dances with a crutch and his partner who has one arm.
The acceptance of their situation, their will that drove their work ethic to learn to perform at this high level is amazing. This was a viral internet, welcome pass on, that I found inspiring.
Here is the link to this performance. Enjoy!
