You may find that you just don’t fit in. Sometimes this can become a frustration, however, if you learn to not fit into a corporate culture the way many of your friends and family do, you can discover something beautiful.
Steve Jobs perhaps summed this idea up best when he said: «When you grow up you tend to be told that the world is the way it is… Life can be much more open once you discover a simple fact: Everything around you in life was made by people who were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you know it, you will never be the same again.”.
Your creativity simply cannot be blocked by the limitations of business life.
There is a lot of hype about having a flexible lifestyle, but the truth is that in entrepreneurship you are going to have to work very hard, so don’t choose this lifestyle if you are not ready. That said, you’ll have to work hard, but you’ll have more flexibility than the traditional nine-to-five, two-week vacation corporate lifestyle.
By entrepreneurship you will live a few years of your life like most people will not. It is hard work, but with this effort you will have the ability to shape your life as you see fit.
Learning should never stop. Many people equate age, status, or certain achievements with the end of their education, but learning is being alive. Entrepreneurs are not satisfied with the knowledge they have, they increasingly seek to acquire more. If you find that learning never gives up knowing enough about the things that interest you, then you have identified one of the genuine reasons why people become entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurship requires imagination and maybe even a pinch of madness. Entrepreneurs are those who change the world. They see the world as they want it to be, not as it is. It was from a brilliant idea that led the Wright brothers to create a flying machine and madness that led Steve Jobs and Bill Gates to develop personal computers. Entrepreneurs follow ideas that others consider crazy.
Changing the world through work is something that drives all entrepreneurs. If you find yourself dissatisfied with a life that relegates you to the background, entrepreneurship may be the right path for you. Entrepreneurs learn by doing and exploring with a voracious appetite.
If the status quo is too simple for you, do you understand what is one of the real reasons why people choose to start a business?
Entrepreneurs not only want to change their lives, they also want to change the world.
