Quit hiding; Just because it is cool to be a start up founder or CEO doesn’t mean that’s what you are meant to be



Quit hiding; Just because it is cool to be a start up founder or CEO doesn’t mean that’s what you are meant to be

Everyone wants to become a boss, CEO, a start-up founder etc and its cool, honestly I have nothing against anyone wanting to do their own thing and being their own boss, CEO’s etc before we go further I will like you to considered this statement “Just because it is cool to be a start up founder or CEO doesn’t mean that’s what you are meant to be”. As teenagers, many of us if not all must have fancied owing our own mega shops, hospitals, radio stations, big farms, hotels etc were we will be in control and supervise a huge number of staff who serve us while seating in our cozy office chair BUT!
“Just because it is cool to be a start up founder or CEO doesn’t mean that what you are meant to be”

Let’s look at the component of the most expensive car in the world, The Lamborghini Veneno which costs $4,500,000 (yep you saw that right!!); The Lamborghini Veneno like every other car is made of components;  chassis, bonnet, tyres, battery, side mirrors, rare mirrors, a boot, terminal wire, exhaust, dash board, a gear box etc each fitted for the mobility of the car. Now just because it’s the most expensive car in the world doesn’t make The Lamborghini Veneno any more valuable or fully functional if any of the listed components mentioned above is absent, non functional or even improperly fixed.

 Every component in the car has a specific function and that function is unique for the purpose the component was built for; if the battery of The Lamborghini Veneno is removed the car is as good as dead same as the terminal wire which conveys converted electric current from the battery to the other parts of the car (it doesn’t matter how small the component is, it has its purpose). Agreeably the body is where the beauty lies in every car but the components are what make it mobile and functional hence the name “a vehicle”.

People often mix up a momentary exhibition of brilliance complimented by others to choose a career and this has made many loose grip and focus of their true identity and like The Lamborghini Veneno and the functionality of its components, we all have our various place of dominance and it will be a misuse or abuse of human resources to function in a place we are not built to function in. A great man once said “You must decide if you are going to rob the world or bless it with the rich, valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you.” . Say for example in the radiator of the car fuel is poured instead of water or the fuel tank is filled with water instead of fuel or imagine the car doesn’t come with side mirrors, imagine the kind of mishaps that will happen as a result of these misplacement (the car will constitute nuisance to its owner).

Finally, one of the sure ways we can be/function in the place we are built for  is being SELF AWARE of our capacities and telling ourselves the TRUTH in the face of sweet coated compliments from others telling us who we are not and accepting ourselves for who we are.
