What Franchise Owners Can Learn From Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was the 11th President of India, has been an inspiration to many people. Here the few lessons franchises can learn from Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam.

Think Different

Kalam was never a believer of 9 to 5 job and had always encouraged others to think differently. He believed that the youth needs to become more enabled to become job generators from job seekers. He also stated that entrepreneurship is the key to the country's economic growth, and it should be included as a course in Indian education system.

He once said, “My message, especially to young people is to have the courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards.”

 Be a leader

Entrepreneurs are team leaders; they are responsible for the success and failure of the business. A leader should have the vision and passion and should not be afraid of any problem. He should have the courage and confidence for overcoming all the hurdles coming his way.  

Dr. Kalam has inspired leadership on many levels. For instance, when he was leading the aerospace project during the 1980s, Union Cabinet disapproved to allocate funds for the same. But Kalam took charge and convinced the then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi and it was instrumental in the growth of India’s space research program.

Be a Dreamer

Future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Every successful business once started with a dream or an idea. Kalam has always encouraged entrepreneurs to dream big and turn their dreams into reality. For instance, Dr. Kalam dreamt of developing critical technology for its missile program.

Despite having many restrictions from around the world in accessing the technology, Kalam carried on with the dream project and was successful in accomplishing it. He said, “You have to dream before your dreams can come true.”

Push your boundaries

Playing safe cannot always be the best decision for your business. You need to take risks and push your boundaries. Dr. Kalam once said, “There is no such thing as an impossible deadline” and he used to live onto this.
