Company History – Every entrepreneur is a diamond, is that good? Yes, but not always, because there are diamonds that don’t shine for certain reasons, we’ll find out about that and much more in this article, in this story! Let’s begin!
I especially like teaching through stories, we’ve already told one here at the Easy Completion. I invite you to read it once you have read this post, it is called: Story of an Entrepreneur: – Success Follows Me
And while it’s very good, I don’t know if I should say it’s better than this because both leave a great lesson. Without further ado, let’s start a new entrepreneurial story!
Company History “The Story of the Diamond”
A long time ago, in a far away place, in another dimension where the inanimate objects of this world have life. A piece of coal existed in the midst of a glittering universe. It’s like saying a “lump of coal” in the midst of lots of diamonds.
The brightness defines how good they were
The brighter you shine in this world, the better you are. And the poor buck thought it was worth nothing. However, in search of more appreciation, he found a way to shine more and that was to polish him!
Searching and searching, he found a master who processed it, polished it… and turned it into a beautiful diamond. It glowed, it was already considered part of his universe. However, on the way home, he saw the other brilliant people looking at him differently. What would happen?
a strange diamond
When he got home he looked in the mirror to see what had happened. And when he looked at it, he was surprised, it wasn’t a clear diamond like the others, but a red diamond.
The problems started again. The diamond felt different because, according to his universe, the real diamond was transparent. Apparently they all gave strange looks, grumbled at him and many walked away.
Very sad, he visited the wise and old man of the place and told him everything, and he told him: Don’t worry my son, the only way to shine is not to be a transparent diamond, no matter what color you are, you are a diamond. And just because you’re different doesn’t mean you’re not worth it.
The diamond went on with his life in the best of moods. And because he didn’t show low self-esteem, the group gradually accepted him. Many criticized her, but he had no choice but to get used to it. But the good thing is that many others looked at him and admired him.
Follow the differences between the diamonds
Once again it seemed as if the diamond had exhausted its life. However, other problems arose. As this is a beautifully colored diamond, it was purchased to show its beauty and difference. It didn’t bother him, but he felt uncomfortable because he wasn’t used to cutting or polishing like the others.
That was the most common job. But our diamond friend couldn’t do that, he was already made into a piece of jewellery, he couldn’t be a cutter or polisher anymore.
It was a long sad time before one day he decided to see the happiness of the people who admired him. Since that day, the beautiful diamond has understood that we all have different functions, we don’t have to act like the others to be important.
A dirty diamond, another problem
The diamond lived on. But you forgot something very important. He forgot that his splendor depended on his cleanliness, which he neglected.
Without realizing the situation, he began to get dirty and spoiled his image more and more every day. Apparently he lost his job and was fired. I didn’t understand why it had lost its luster until one day it rained so hard the poor diamond got wet.
When she went home, she looked at herself in the mirror and had regained her luster. Understanding everything, he could understand that he had not lost his worth, but at the same time, along with his worth, he had neglected his cleanliness.
to meet the love of his life
One day he met a diamond. She was red, it was noticeable that she barely stopped being a coal. Our diamond fell in love with her but confused, little formed, she felt sad and ashamed.
He wanted to help her and tried to shape her. He took it to a carpenter but he broke all the tools trying to cut it to no avail. That’s what happened to many professionals. Unfortunately, he didn’t remember how he was turned into such a beautiful shiny piece.
All this until she asked him about his job. He told her the ins and outs of his work, she was amazed to tell him that she loved it because it was something different since, as far as she knew, most diamonds in this universe were dedicated to cutting and polishing.
Finding out where this profession was practiced, he took the girl with him. They left her beautiful and she could understand that a diamond can only be cut by another diamond. This beautiful couple continued their life that seems silly at first but if we analyze it leaves us with great knowledge. Which I will explain below.
Company history: “The story of the diamond”
The first thing we learn in the history of this diamond is that we need to be processed. When you compare yourself to other entrepreneurs, you may see yourself as a “little thing,” something worthless or incapable of doing big. If I compare you to Apple’s creator, Facebook, you are surely intimidated. Let me tell you that you can do great things too, all you have to do is polish on yourself and stop being just coal.
So if you don’t shine, it’s not because you can’t. But because you have to go through a process that will bring out that brilliance: study, prepare, get to work, rehearse, test, etc.
You don’t have to be like the others
On the other hand, being a red diamond wasn’t easy. And so it is with us. We see attitudes in other people, qualities that honestly don’t suit us.
You may see that your friends are more skilled at memorizing, drawing, working, etc. Or you just see that you aren’t physically like everyone and feel out of place. But let me tell you that even diamonds come in different shapes and sizes and they still shine. You don’t have to be the same as other entrepreneurs, friends, family… to shine and be successful. While it’s true that there are things you need to shape, your nature, personality… it won’t stop you from being successful.
You don’t have to do the same as everyone else
There are entrepreneurs who would like to “found a bookshop”. But they’re shy because it’s supposedly something very sophisticated and boring, for the youth it’s better, a cinema, a bar, etc. Or even worse, they say entrepreneurship isn’t fun, they prefer to do other things.
It should be clear to you that not all of us fill the same roles. We can also shine with different functions. Don’t feel like you have to do the same thing as everyone else, just do what you’re passionate about and you will succeed.
Get rid of the dust that doesn’t make you shine.
From this entrepreneurial story, I love this point. And it’s like we can shine in a moment, be very good… but if we don’t take care of that shine, we’re going to fail. Do not trust yourself, because today your company is a success. You still have to learn, strategize, take care of your mood and your relationships…because if you allow yourself to get dirty, you will fail to shine.
phew! only a diamond cuts another diamond
i loved that And it is that as an entrepreneur you can only be trained by other entrepreneurs or professionals in the field you want to learn.
That means you should spend time interacting with these types of people. I’m not saying you should give up your friendships, but you should spend a little more time with people who think like you. Likewise, leave some free time online and spend time on sites like ours that aim to teach you what you need.
And what have you learned from this entrepreneurial story?
I sincerely hope, and if you didn’t catch it reading what I call Company History, I hope that reading the conclusion has taught you what you learned.
Without further ado, I can only say goodbye and wish you every success. Until next time!
