Open Mind — Mark Zukerberg invited 5 people to his Harvard dorm room 12 years ago to discuss a business opportunity – “Facebook”

*Mark Zukerberg invited 5 people to his Harvard dorm room 12 years ago to discuss a business opportunity – “Facebook”*

*Only 2 people showed up and they got in.*
Today, those two people are billionaires: Dustin Moskovitz ($10.7 Billion) and Eduardo Saverin ($7.4 Billion).

*I wonder what it will be like for the other three that were also invited but didn’t show up.*

There is nothing more expensive than a closed mind.

While many people dream of becoming better persons than the previous years, only a few actually do it.

While many people dream of quitting their jobs and start their own businesses, only a few actually do it.

Why is it that some people are more successful than others?
*BECAUSE the power of their dreams is more stronger than their excuses.*

*1) FEAR*
*2) I don’t have the money* (who has?)

*3) I don’t have any contacts to start with* (Really?)

*4) I’m not smart enough* (You just crowned yourself as mumu)

*5) I can’t talk* (Are you dumb?)

*6) I don’t have the time* (Yet you have the time to wake up by 5am and get dressed to be in traffic)

*7) I’m too busy* (Doing what exactly?)

*8) It takes too long to build a business* ( But you envy Dangote)

*9) I’m afraid. Building a business is too risky for me* (Is eating not risky? Is sleeping not risky? People have died in their sleep)

*10) I don’t like dealing with people* (Mr Island…I greet your Excellency)

*11) I’m too old* (Age is never a barrier)
*12) Waiting for all the lights to turn GREEN* (Lights turn GREEN when you press the button)

*13) My husband,my wife, my parents don’t support it* (They don’t support you being broke either but you are)

*14) My job is too demanding and I travel a lot* (Arik Wings of Africa)

*15) I’m not good at marketing* (Yet you are too good at forwarding numerous WhatsApp posts)

*16) No,it’s network. I can’t do it.* (But you spread gossip like wildfire but can’t spread a business that will better your life?)

*17) I’m not a professional (Who was born a professional?)*
But if they were the deciding factors, nobody would ever succeed.

*For every reason why it’s not possible, there are hundreds of people who have faced the same circumstances and succeeded.*

Lots of people overcome these so-called limiting factors, so it can’t be the limiting factors that stop you but it’s YOU that stop YOU.

DONALD TRUMP should be a lesson to some of us that nothing in the world can stop a determined mind.
