How you approach life will ultimately decide the outcome of it. In my opinion, there are only two types of people on this planet. The guys who find solutions and guys who concentrate on problems. Let me share a story with you...
Shoe manufacturers from all over the world were looking for emerging markets to sell their products to. After scouring the globe, some of them sent sales teams into Africa, completed their due diligence reports and headed back to their countries of origin. The overall majority said, "There is no market in Africa because nobody wears shoes".
Bata Shoes (a company from the Czech Republic) also sent their sales teams into Africa, completed their due diligence reports and headed back to their HQ. They said, "There is a market in Africa because nobody wears shoes!".
Bata now dominate Africa and the developing world in the shoes market all because they saw opportunity where others saw obstacles or risk.
So tell me, what are you? Half full or half empty?
PS - This was many years back when Africa wasn't a developing market. I have been to Africa many times and people do wear shoes.
