Entrepreneurs vs. Visionaries

Many of you are on your paths to creating and developing various products, brands, companies and ideas. The ones that solve sort of problem will make an impact on the world. Some of you will be the ones that find the solution to the problem: visionaries. Others will be the ones that grow that solution and implement it: entrepreneurs. Then there will be those who are visionaries and entrepreneurs. Which will you be?

Sometimes we never see what failure is and often fail to recognize it. Before defining failure we need to discuss what success is. Success is not about how much money we have in the bank but it’s about how many peoples’ lives we have impacted through it. Success is experienced when we do things which have never been done before.

If we want to impact hundreds or millions of people we have to do things differently. If we look at the problem as an infrastructural problem we cannot make an impact because it requires a lot of effort. But when we convert this problem into a knowledge problem, suddenly the problem is manageable.

Hence, it becomes important to realize what failure and success means to a person and what he does with it. It is the duty of every entrepreneur to go through this process of growth in order to fulfill his dreams.

An entrepreneur is not a person who starts a company but he is the person who actually solves a problem. It’s all about execution and it is a state of mind. A person who sees a problem is a Human Being; a person who finds a solution is visionary; and the person who goes out and does something about it is an entrepreneur.
