Abstract

This paper discusses the correlational relationship between three very important concepts in business and entrepreneurship arena. Prior to the concept of entrepreneurship as a way out of the current global economic crises, people easily get admission into higher institutions after their secondary education. On completion, they are assured of an already made job with a car and free accommodation with other relevant facilities. Then, the demand for human capital was much more than supply. But as time goes on, graduate started having problem with getting job on graduation. People who are flexible in thought and reasoning started adjusting but those who are not realistic with the changing trends in the national and international business environment kept on waiting for non-existing jobs in the government establishments believing that one day government would give them job whether there are job vacancies or not. Some did succeed but many did not and this still pervades the environment till date. In view of the above, this paper looks at the possibility of solving the problem by finding a supposedly missing link between attitudinal change, power of thought and entrepreneurship.
