Maya Angelou stated this quote as an absolute ideology on the concept of Time. From my point of view, Patience is definitely the key virtue to obtain success in the world of entrepreneurship. It is that long term commitment you vow to yourself that the pursuit of FREEDOM, “doing what I want when I want”, is the goal I will hunt down for as long as there is breath in my body. Hence the answer to instant gratification is, “All Great Achievements Require Time.” ⏳
One example of a great business story that was mentioned in the book by Merriam-Webster, “25 Business Stories“, took decades of time to prosper; Lenovo. Currently in the top 3 of the world’s leaders in PC sales. Originally called Legend, they began as a small start-up. Just 11 computer scientists started the firm in a small building in Beijing. In 2005, Lenovo completed the acquisition of IBM’s PC division. Which IBM was highly responsible for the birth of the home PC market 20 years earlier. In April 2006, Lenovo signed a $1.2 Billion deal with Microsoft, agreeing to install Windows OS on it’s new computers. The company also built its brand by sponsoring the Olympics. With over 20 years in the business, $13 billion+ in revenues, 20,000+ employees, Lenovo is a powerhouse that left its mark on the world and simply required TIME to become a household name worldwide.

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.
