Have you ever wondered why some entrepreneurs become successful, and others don’t?
Well, who hasn’t?
The problem is, we often assume that successful business owners have something we lack, be it extraordinary talent, money, and connections, or simply a lot of luck.
And sure, these things might help – but they’re not what success is made of. Instead, success in entrepreneurship is the result of resilience: the ability to face criticism and rejection in the marketplace when pursuing your goals.
So if resilience is the key, then for us GODPRENEURS, what does the Bible say about resilience?
Resilience is the biblical norm for Christians. The Bible contains many admonitions to press on (Philippians 3:13–15), overcome hardship and temptation (Romans 12:21), and persevere in the face of trials (James 1:12). It also gives us numerous examples of people who suffered greatly but continued to follow God’s plan for their lives. Proverbs 24:16 could be seen as the theme verse for the resilient: “Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”
For GODPRENEURS, we have an unfair advantage because we're already taught to choose to trust in the Lord rather than rely on what we understand. This is the best way to practice, perfect, and stay resilient. 💪
