Being able to consciously decide how you will live your life is a pretty powerful concept. Being an entrepreneur is one way to take control of your most valued resource, your time.
Let’s just accept the idea that being an entrepreneur isn’t easy. The constant connection to your business through a web of interconnected issues and challenges keeps even the most batted hardened entrepreneur up at night. There will be months where you have little or nothing to your name, times when you just want to quit and move back into the tedious existence of stable corporate life. But this would sacrifice the very essence of what it means to be an entrepreneur. The ability to choose.
Being an entrepreneur allows one the power of choice. It allows one to break free from your natural default setting of day in and day out existence. As an entrepreneur, each day can be a wonderful adventure, the choices are endless.
As a society we are slowly moving into a world of numb meaningless existence – entrepreneurs are fighting against this gradual decline and embracing the freedom to choose how they will live their lives.
Entrepreneurship is really about making a conscious decision to challenge the accepted and create new and meaningful experiences. This video, although not directly related, gives a good overview of this idea.
Entrepreneurship is not easy. You will work harder than you have ever worked before, you will fail and have to start again but you will be in control of your future. This is why entrepreneurship is wonderful. The beauty of choice.
