Greatness

When you think about the greatest entrepreneurs who ever lived, the chances are you immediately think of Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and other modern-day billionaires. These are obviously amazing entrepreneurs whose accomplishments have improved our lifestyle with their imagination and creativity, and their ability to bring their ideas to life through unrelenting execution.

Rather than reflect on the entrepreneurs with whom you’re already familiar, there’s a lot that can be learned by reviewing the Old School entrepreneurs, the originals, the pioneers, and the inventive people who shaped our world in ways that provided the launchpad for today’s new generation of entrepreneurs to be prolific and influential.

Many of the following 10 great entrepreneurs faced the dilemma of their time, lacking experience, capital, and connections. Each of them had a clicking point that sculpted their worldview, which became a deeply held belief reflected in their thoughts and actions. As you read these deliberately short, concise biographies, you’ll notice that some were motivated by a lack of financial security, a traumatic loss or painful experience, feelings of inadequacy, a need to express themselves freely, a desire to be recognized as a person of importance or the urgency to prove themselves the best. Some are also inspired to make an impact and leave a legacy.

You’ll also easily see how The 9 Laws of Entrepreneurship were present in their entrepreneurial path, and how each of these truly amazing entrepreneurs use the 9 Laws as they parlayed themselves and their lives to the heights of extreme success.

Like you, these entrepreneurs had the three most important attributes necessary to be a successful entrepreneur: a dream, an unrelenting desire to be successful, and a commitment to achieve their dream no matter what obstacles stood in their way. 

These 10 great entrepreneurs are all male, Caucasian, and Christian because extravagant success a century and more ago in the United States was largely curtailed for anybody else. However, these men are not just great because of their success; they are also great because of their impact. Consider how your success impacts others.

When you believe you have the same personal force of will as Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford, and Disney, or Jobs, Bezos, and Gates, you will achieve the same degree of success they did. The key is believing in yourself and being willing to experiment until you navigate the labyrinth and manifest the astounding achievements you are so capable of attaining!
