Start Your Own Business: Bob Proctor(Guest Post)


Starting Your Own business

By Bob Proctor

The other day I was talking with a young man who will graduate from
university next month. He was having a very difficult time making a
decision with respect to his future employment. What would he do?
Where would he go?
On and on the questions flowed. However, the answers were escaping


I began by asking him how he wanted to live, and where he wanted to live.
Then I asked how much he wanted to earn. The amount he wanted to earn was
considerably more than 99 percent of the companies in the country would offer, if they
decided to employ him.
Then I asked, “Why don’t you start your own company? Work for yourself.” I
suggested every company in the world was started by someone. If they could do it, he
could, too.
His reply was a blank stare. Then slowly he said, “I never thought of that.”
I replied, “There are millions of people in the country and every one of them has
needs. Think of what those needs are, then which one you would most enjoy filling.”
For some strange reason, as a people, we seem to think a person must be a certain age
before they can start a business of their own. That idea has no foundation. It’s ridiculous!
Age has nothing to do with starting a business. Courage, ambition, and a sincere desire to
serve others are all that are required. You may be eighteen or eighty.



I read where Kemmons Wilson built a chain of hotels—Wilson Inns. Mr. Wilson was eighty years old. He had retired and became bored. By the way, he is the originator of

Holiday Inns.

Young Tim Dorchuk of Burlington, Ontario, at nineteen years of age, is a self-made millionaire. He started his own business at the age of twelve.

Experience . . . you will get it. Money . . . you will attract it. Make a decision, find a need, and fill it. Your age should not be a consideration.

Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, which takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into
practice. What would life be if we had no courage to attempt and follow our dreams?
