It’s Vital to Develop Entrepreneurial Thinking for Success in The 21st Century

Debbie Entreprenurial SpiritIt’s been stated that over 65% of the work that will be done by today’s youth, hasn’t been invented yet. To some this will look like a negative, something that can’t be avoided, leaving no possibilities. For others it is a time of excitement, creation and possibility! Those that have developed entrepreneurial thinking will be excited and see huge possibilities for the future.

I recently read about a big food chain that is talking about replacing their workers with robots. These workers have typically been students, saving for their education.

This brings up the need to educate students to develop entrepreneurial thinking…so they learn to be the “creators” of their work…not the victims of underemployment.

Is is ok to sit back, and “hope” this doesn’t affect youth, or, wait for someone to create some new type of work they can do? There are two types of people in the world. Those that are given a vision, and then live in fear of it becoming a negative reality…. and those that have that same vision and can see problems before they occur, and as a result, go to work to create a solution.

Anyone reading this article, has the option of which category they choose to fall into.

Those that create solutions are visionary leaders the world needs to move forward, and ANYONE can make a choice to align themselves with others that have this type of mindset.

You are not afraid to make bold decisions, and take action. This is one of the major differences between an employee mindset and the mindset of an entrepreneur, and it CAN be learned. Our world is changing, and it is changing fast. Those that develop their entrepreneurial thinking will give themselves an edge to create success in the 21st century!

  1. I agree, it is the way of future work. Do you have a link to the podcast?

    You are absolutely right….society as a whole must adjust their thinking in order to succeed in our changed world. There is so much opportunity….but one must have the entrepreneurial mindset to even see the opportunities. This is crucial to have the courage to move forward, make bold, powerful decisions that support ones goals.

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!

    • I’m sorry I don’t have a link to the podcast. I listen to so many as I work, I’m not even sure of who was talking. It might have been Jeff Goins. I’ve been listening to him a lot. However, I read this article in Fast Company magazine. Here’s a quote from there. Former labor secretary and Berkley economist Robert Reich predicts that by 2020, more than 40% of the American workforce will be made up of “contingent workers.” Speaking recently to New York magazine, Reich estimated that by 2030, the majority of the U.S. workforce will be, in his words, “on their own.”

  2. Excellent foresight, Debbie. We definitely need to be thinkers looking for new options. I just listened to a podcast where the author told that by the year 2030 it’s estimated that 60% of the workforce will be freelance. I’m not much for statistics as proof positive of anything – but your article shares important insights into adjusting our own thinking and being an advocate of teaching and training students of all ages to think entrepreneurially.
