The Stories Of Entrepreneurs


Dreams are real. They are the movies that play free of charge in our sleep and even while were awake. Some people grab hold of their dreams while others are too afraid to believe in them. Excuses, Excuses, Excuses!

When people fail to do something, they always have an excuse. However, if analyzed closely an excuse is a self-destructive alibi for having failed to do something, especially when it involves attaining a goal. Instead of trying to persevere in finding ways to achieving goals, some resort to excuses.


You will never be a successful entrepreneur if you let people hold you down. Or if you think the little guys didn’t stand a chance. Anyone can start a business. It’s not just for the guy with the Harvard MBA. If you have the passion and dedication you can start your own business too.


We think of entrepreneurs as national assets to be cultivated, motivated and remunerated to the greatest possible extent. Entrepreneurs can change the way we live and work.

If successful, their innovations may improve our standard of living. In short, in addition to creating wealth from their ventures, they also create jobs and the conditions for a prosperous society.


Entrepreneurship is a key driver of our economy. Wealth and a high majority of jobs are created by small businesses started by entrepreneurially minded individuals, many of whom go on to create big businesses. People exposed to entrepreneurship frequently express that they have more opportunity to exercise creative freedoms, higher self-esteem, and an overall greater sense of control over their own lives.


As a result, many experienced business people political leaders, economists, and educators believe that fostering a robust entrepreneurial culture will maximize individual and collective economic and social success on a local, national, and global scale.


It is with this in mind that NATLUXMAG was founded to help inspire would be entrepreneurs, to develop the insight needed to discover and create entrepreneurial opportunities and to keep pushing, fighting and clawing to succeed in an entrepreneurial economy.

The Fear

By Harry Meehan 02/01/23: Fear is caused by worrying about something, often an event or situation which is in the future. Fear and nerves are two separate ideas and feelings and I believe that they should not be used in an interchangeable way, let me explain. Fear is a feeling that incredibly powerful and overbearing emotional state, which can in some cases lead to fear paralysis, in an emotional and physical sense. Nerves are an equally powerful emotion which show we care and when harnessed in the correct way they can be an incredibly formidable lieutenant to have by our side. Put simply, nerves can help us, fear does not.


When I write that fear does not help us, of course I am referring to the fear we create by intense worrying about situations far beyond our reach. Fear is an entirely necessary and primal function of the human body because it is an effective warning system which in theory should steer us clear of any impending danger, for example guiding us away from a situation of intense violence because our innate system of thought is aware that immense pain and anguish can be caused if we were to remain.


Moving onto the man-made fear that I have already referred to and the type of fear which I wish to eradicate in society to promote happier living. Remember that immense feeling of relief and literal ‘weight’ being lifted off your shoulders after finishing that presentation you had spent weeks agonizing over? Yes, I know you do. Remember the stress it caused you worrying about it after work, negatively impacting your relationships and even your sleep? This can be resolved. Now don’t get me wrong, of course it is important to perform well and we as humans are wired to seek approval from others, so yes, it is important that you prepare well, this goes for any job from corporate professionals to professional athletes, but it is important that this eagerness to perform does not turn into performance related anxiety and creating an imbalance in your life. Fear of failure is often a self-fulfilling prophecy, so cut yourself loose from this fear and give yourself a shot at success.


The answer to all of this? Let Go.


Remind yourself of what is important to you and strip it back your happiness to its most embryonic form. If compiling a sensational sales report is what drives you and gives you fulfilment and happiness, then crack on; but I suspect it is not for most of you.


I believe that life is best when things are simple and this is not me reinventing the wheel by any means, I believe that you are all acutely aware of the benefits of simplicity, be it in the way we think or the way we live. When things are simple, by definition there is less to worry about and by worrying less we begin to release ourselves from the metaphorical straitjacket which we have all been slowly dressed in in an underhand way by the modern society in which we live.


Now I have made this all sound incredibly simple, and I admit that fear and anxiety are very serious issues and should not be trivialized. I know that we cannot always control our thought processes, but what we can do is strive to be better. By that I mean that we can learn techniques which enable us to think in a clearer, more streamlined way to help declutter our minds and live a happier life. I cannot promise you that this will be an easy process, but I can promise that with a good level of application the rewards will be worth it. Reward yourself and look after your mind, it is the most powerful tool you have at your disposal, tailor it to your needs and make it function in a manner which pleases you. To achieve this, I suggest that you begin to engage in the practice of mindfulness; this can be done in a number of ways such as through mediation, guided through apps like Headspace or even bouts of exercise to ‘clear the mind’. Trust me on this one, looking after your body and mind will be more fulfilling than any material good that money can buy, and the best thing? You have all the tools at your disposal, free of charge!


I challenge you also to Let Go. Let Go of something, be it a luxury material good or a worrying thought (fear) for a set time limit, be it a day or even an hour. I bet you that if you fully Let Go of something, for example a mobile phone for just one hour of your day, you will not be rushing back to it. Let Go for a healthier, happier mindset and let us grow on this mission towards happiness together. In a society where we are told that bigger is better and most is more, do less, think less so that you can LIVE more. Article source:
