Grasshopper Statues as Unique Good Luck Gifts for Entrepreneurs

Grasshoppers are not only universal good luck symbols but also great Feng Shui gifts. Grasshoppers have often been passed down to us as beloved characters in children’s stories, and Explosion Luck has just started our own beautiful line of Limited Edition grasshopper figurines for our clients. But have entrepreneurs ever sat down and thought about the similarities they share with the grasshoppers?
Here’s some food for thought about handcrafted grasshoppers as unique gifts to bring luck to Type A entrepreneurs from Explosion Luck.
Grasshoppers make their own music. This one is common sense, is it not? By and large successful entrepreneurs and businessmen march to the beat of their own drum and make their own music in life.
On the path to success, they are often called crazy, and their vision for success is often ridiculed and laughed at by detractors who are convinced their company is bound to fail. Yet the drum beat and music in their head cannot be silenced; they walk their path driven by their unique vision.
Grasshoppers follow their gut instincts. The ears of grasshoppers are actually located on their bellies. Let me ask an entrepreneur a simple question, how important is your “gut feeling” when it comes to being a successful businessman? Having the ability to sense and detect opportunities (as well as dangers) that nobody else in the room can recognize?
The intuitive ability to sense things in your gut is what often separates the wheat from the chaff in the business world, and, as most businessmen know, experience or educational level doesn’t guarantee that you’re endowed with it (look at how many successful billionaires like Bill Gates, Michael Dell, and Mark Zuckerberg are actually college dropouts).
Grasshoppers can take flight in order to avoid danger. Look at the staggering percentage of businesses that fail and go bankrupt within the first few years of operation, or look to the stock market, where vast fortunes can be wiped out in the blink of an eye.
To succeed in business, you have to be able to sense danger and take flight, even when those around you laugh at you and tell you that everything is fine.
Grasshoppers use camouflage to blend in perfectly with their surrounding environment. What’s the lesson that we can take from this? Know your corporate surroundings as well as the intricacies of your industry inside and out.
Being able to successfully traverse office politics is vital if you’re going to succeed, but so is being the most knowledgeable and respected opinion in the room when it comes to the industry your company is competing in.
Grasshoppers are early to rise. He who arrives first gets the juiciest leaf to feast on. Entrepreneurs who keep their ear to the ground and are constantly looking for new fads, trends, and markets are the ones who receive the lion’s share of profits, while the rest of the pack have to content themselves with the leftovers.
If we’ve picked your curiosity with these striking similarities between entrepreneurs and handcrafted grasshoppers, you now know what kind of unique gift to get your entrepreneur friend, or loved one this Christmas.
