Not all of us will definitely start a business, but we can all add the suffix of “preneur” to whatever good we found ourselves doing.
The common denominator among entrepreneurs and top doers is the ability to process issues, manage risks, see opportunities and give them home runs.
Entrepreneur primarily push beyond the norm. Relentlessly pushing that singular objective even in face of thunders.
These people are similar in two instance.
One, their net worth speaks volume. They are are all rich, famous and impacting lives.
Second, they have stories of struggles and hustles behind them and even at that they choose to remain as entrepreneurs.
So why should you consider being part of the big family. You may end up loving this path.
1. Don’t Die A Chicken
I recently heard a story about an eagle egg found by a farmer by the road side. The farmer took the egg and hatch it among his hen and the eagle grow to become much like the hen.
The eagle fly merely as the hen can.
One day, the hen saw an eagle flying above and comment to the “fellow hen” what’s that flying in the sky.
Then comes the response from the mother hen, “that’s an eagle — the king of the air. Father of all other bird, the magnificent and all powerful eagle”.
The eagle was amazed by the mighty description and got bored.
The mother hen lashes out the profanity we all have grown up with.
Don’t bother yourself, you can never fly like him.
So the little eagle accepted and grow old to die as as a hen unaware of his identity.
If you probably don’t wish to die as the hen. You’ve got to learn to fly.
Look within yourself to see your entrepreneurship wings. Chances are that you are loaded with many unique products, solutions and systems the world is yet to experience.
Killing all those potentials mean dying as an hen while you ought to rend your wings in the sky and fly as the eagle that you are.
2. Save lives
This is perhaps one of the cogent reasons I choose to be and remain an entrepreneur. Think of job creation, philanthropy, technological development, innovation, etc.
They all have entrepreneurs as the innovators and further developers.
The jobs we create bring opportunity for someone to feed his entire family and even pay for the bills of his dying mother on the sick bed.
We can’t all be waiting on the government to think and create for us. We have got to save our world ourselves.
Think of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and its impact on global affairs and saving lives. It is a foundation created and funded by the Microsoft tycoon we all talk about.
3. Do What You Love
Of course majority of the world end up doing what they actually never loved. Do you wish to join in or stand out? The only way to career freedom is the entrepreneurs’ path.
Even if you’ve got a job you love dearly today, what’s the chance it’s going to remain the same way with new a boss.
Why not be your own boss?
If that’s all two risky for you or not in your golden ratio be a member of a partnership where you are a constant and not a variable.
4. Live Your Dream Life
If you are like me, you’ll probably like a month holiday in London beaches. Or three weeks travels to fascinating cities while working and giving instructions from your cell phones and Slack Board.
It’s much of the life I want. Maybe yours is a little bit different.
We all want some degree of freedom which I bet your 9 – 5 would not afford. It is too much of a luxury right?
Think about it for a second, if the job you are currently doing could afford you all you want maybe you will have quit this article from the title.
Though I may not be able to express your life desires here but I believe your life deserve a better offer.
Remember your childhood dreams, how many have you forgone to the lie they are childish because they will cost you your job or ruin four month salaries.
Though a call to entrepreneurship doesn’t imply it’s a smooth road up the path, but with dedication, consistency and the right mentor-ship you’ll probably just there sooner than you expected.
5. Life Long Learning
Co-founder and Chief Technology Adviser of Microsoft, Bill Gates is know to be an avid reader in areas that interest him such as transforming systems: how nations can intelligently develop, how to lead an organization, and how social change can fruitfully happen.
If you are a simple minded individual like me that desire a life long learning, being an entrepreneur will help you attain that with ease and necessity.
