"Bootstrapping or booting refers to a group of metaphors that share a common meaning, a self-sustaining process that proceeds without external help." "Bootstrapping in business is to start a business without external help/capital. Startups that bootstrap their business fund development of their company through internal cash flow and are cautious with their expenses." -- (wikipedia)
When God created man, he started with one man Adam and gave them a command to be fruitful and to multiply. The world as we see it today with billions of people started with just one man, Adam; so tell me who is the king of bootstrapping?
If you want to start a business and you require let's say N10m(Ten Million Naira) and the cash you have is N10,000(Ten Thousand Naira), I dare say that is all you need. Why? Just follow me and the picture will get clearer. "He that is faithful in little is faithful in much" the scripture does not say he that is faithful in little will be faithful but God makes us understand that the man faithful in little is already, present tense, faithful in much.
When God blessed Abraham, he spoke Words to him. When He blessed Solomon, Words were spoken. God still blesses people very much in the same way today by Words.
It doesn't matter where you are, whether you are an employee or you are already a well seasoned business owner, God wants to see you at the very top of your game. If you are an employee, you can bootstrap your way to the top of your organization. Work when at work, start before everyone else and stay later than everyone else, when every other employee is complaining, keep quiet and if you'd talk choose to emphasize the bright side, go the extra mile; this is also bootstrapping. If you can do all these now tell me, when it's time for your boss to give an opportunity to rise in the company's leadership who will be called upon, the complaining employee or the bootstrapping employee?
Start today from where you are and you'll get to where you want to be; bootstrap your way to your destination. Don't be afraid of making mistakes or failing. If you do make a mistake or fail along the way, WHAT THE HELL? Get up and do it again. If you fail again, keep doing it again until you get it right. It doesn't matter how many times you tried or how many times you failed at it, what matters is THE ONE TIME YOU GET IT RIGHT!
I believe in you. We Are The Present -- We Are The Future.
