Cave mentality means thinking as if you were stuck or hemmed in at one spot by a particular situation, you don’t see any hope and then you begin to make the wrong moves. I coined this word from Genesis 19:31-32 where the daughters of Lot after their escape from Sodom to a cave thought “There isn’t a man anywhere in this entire area that our father would let us marry. And our father will soon be too old for having children. Come, let’s fill him with wine and then we will sleep with him, so that our clan will not come to an end.” That is cave mentality: ” There is nobody to help me with my business”, “I don’t have capital”, ” I don’t have resources”, “There are no investors for my business”, ” There are no jobs”, “There are no opportunities”. Do these sound familiar???
Dissolve that cave mentality. The whole universe is your playing field plus all the planets, the sun, the moon and all. If you feel stuck on Earth, go to Mars. But before you go there, let’s talk about the vast wealth of resources on Earth. The number one resource you have is YOU. With the power of your mind, you can achieve anything, go anywhere and get anything. Whatever you believe and accept is what becomes true for you. Do you need someone to hire you or you need to hire someone? The unemployment problem is because many people think someone who has the responsibility to hire them has not yet done that. Therefore they are stuck. Do you know that starting a business now is even easier than 10 years ago and will continue to be?
Dissolve that cave mentality. Rather than thinking of being hired, think ” I have the responsibility of hiring someone”. Oh but Ann: “Can everyone start a business?”, ” Are there enough resources for everyone who wants to start a business? “, “Won’t there be overpopulation in a particular industry if everyone decides to go there?”, ” Who will hire who if everyone is a business owner? ” Sometimes OVERthinking can be a problem.
To address the first question (Can everyone start a business?), yes everyone can be a business owner though some people will never be. Why? Jesus once said “The poor you will always have with you…”. In extension, I say ” The unemployed you will always have with you “. Its a sad situation though. But for you reading this article today, the truth is that you can start your own business and succeed at it. If you already have a business, you don’t need to be stuck at one place. There are two ways to be rich. One is by working for God and the other is working for yourself.
To address the second question (Are there enough resources for everyone, yes there is a vast wealth of resource in the earth for every single one of us no matter the increasing birth rate. Don’t accept the thought that the world is overpopulated that there is resource shortage, food shortage, etc.How can there be food shortage when foodstuffs are getting rotten on the farms because of lack of preservation and lack of transportation? This is a multi trillion dollar industry. How can there be lack of resources when the sun and moon will be there as long as there is Earth. This is a multi trillion dollar industry. For now, I want you to know that there is more than enough resources for everyone and for your business. Think that way, be excited about it and find out more about it.
Dissolve that cave mentality. About the third question (Won’t there be overpopulation in a particular industry if everyone decides to go there?), overpopulation in a particular field is not your problem at all. There is no one exactly like you in the whole world and no one will ever be like you. No two people are the same not even identical twins. The way you look, the way you talk, everything is unique. Even if everyone goes into a particular industry, you bring on board something different from what everyone is doing. This is because you are different from everyone else. You have unique talents, abilities, qualities and you express them uniquely. There are millions of blog posts daily on having the right mentality but I express mine uniquely. I know someone needs to hear what I have to say how I have to say it differently from the millions. That is why I write. The world is waiting for you.
Dissolve that cave mentality. And to the fourth question (Who will hire who if everyone starts their own business?) The answer is “We will all be employers and ” employees” at the same time. Think of outsourcing as employing another business to perform part of your tasks. Everyone already has something to offer and no one is unemployed. You can start your business now.
