Are You Ready To Be An Entrepreneur?

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • People become entrepreneurs for many different reasons, some to do what they love, others to help serve people and others just to pay their bills or even live the lifestyle of their dreams. Regardless of the reason you may want to start your own business, you must realize that successful entrepreneurs are really artists.

    When a painter begins their masterpiece, they are looking at a blank slate. When a sculptor begins their masterpiece, they are looking at a lump of clay. What separates the master painter and master sculptor from the rest of the crowd is that they see opportunity from that blank slate or lump of clay.

    When an entrepreneur envisions their masterpiece, they are looking at nothing other than opportunity. That is the same opportunity that the master painter or sculptor sees.

    It takes a true artist to see something out of nothing and an even greater artist to begin the process to sculpt the situation to match that which they envision. Sometimes no one can see what you see and sometimes people may even tell you that you are crazy for thinking you can see some kind of opportunity.

    Well, you may be crazy, or maybe you are just crazy enough to believe what you see is possible.

    If you do what everyone else has done, you will have what everyone else has. It is entrepreneurs who are willing to do what no one else is willing to do so they can have what no one else has.

    They are willing to give up immediate gratification for long-term fulfillment. They don’t mind working long nights and weekends because they believe that those long hours will be worth it in the end.

    It is that belief that drives them to do what they do in the face of fear, uncertainty and doubt. Therefore, when they persist on, they do end up creating a masterpiece.

    The true masterpieces are lives that are built around your passion and values so that everyday you can wake up doing what you love and generate a profit doing it. Many people don’t become entrepreneurs because they don’t know how to monetize their dream. The happiest entrepreneurs figure out a way to do the things that they really enjoy and build systems around all the other things, utilizing other peoples efforts, resources and technology.

    I would like to invite you to figure out what you love to do and then begin making an inquiry into how you can do more of that and less of what you don’t enjoy. Then I would begin asking yourself how can you continue to do that thing you enjoy while serving others, and how you can serve the greatest amount of people. Next I would ask myself how can I continue to do what I love, serve others and generate enough revenue to support my lifestyle.

    When you answer those questions and can design a lifestyle that you love, you are a true Entrepreneur Artist!
