I am an introvert, not the bordering type, more like well at the extreme end of the spectrum type. But if you see me these past months, you will bet your breakfast, lunch and dinner that I’m anything but an introvert. This is what a newly found ambition can do to you, it kind of remolds you from the inside, bringing you out of your comfort zone. This kind of change comes about only when you interact with people with a higher drive than yours.
Approximately six months ago, I met a girl who was to become my girlfriend. Her profile on Facebook was astounding. I mean, for a Nigerian, she was well traveled. She was the founder of a non-profit – Kate Tales Foundation. She was an ambassador to notable international organisations. She had been interviewed by top media houses, amid other incredible things about her profile. I wondered what kind of drive she had, and to think that she was just 22. A while after that, she introduced me to a business idea and showed me the plan, and immediately, I just keyed into the idea which we’re executing right now.
This brings me to my postulate of the first law of business which could also pass for life in general: a person will remain in his/her comfort zone or in the same path of life unless acted upon by a different drive.
