The Mind of an Entrepreneur: My diary, Your Self-Assessment tool

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."- Theodore Roosevelt
The decisive factor to my journey as an entrepreneur of over a decade is the "do-it-now-attitude", setting off the spirit of procrastination and doing something worthwhile. A lot of people have visions and ideas but only a few take a decision to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer."
Entrepreneurs have been found and said to be risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise; willingly assuming responsibility for the success or failure of a venture. Ready to get mocked at and turning every mockery, every failure, into sources of inspiration for greatness that will silence the critics.

Setting up your own service or product line is like riding a roller coaster. There are high points and low points but my experience is that while the lows can truly be very low, the corresponding highs have proven to be really high. At the end, you are doing what you love most, sculpting your thoughts and ideas into reality.

No successful entrepreneur has had a smooth ride to the top and none ever will. The challenges, disappointment and failures will always be there; it’s the manner you handle them that determines whether you will succeed or not.

The follow-your-gut mentality of the emerging or aspiring entrepreneur can be more challenging; more fulfilling; more inspiring, truly more fun and what a heck, you get to sculpt your very own business empire with your very own ideas and skills. True success is not about money, status or fame, it’s rather about finding a livelihood that brings you joy and self-sufficiency and a sense of contributing to the world.

Finally, always remember that It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better.  The credit belongs to the man who is in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; Who strives valiantly; Who errs and comes up short again and again; Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; Who at best knows in the end the triumph of great achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be among those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Are you an Entrepreneur or Do you want to be one? Are you really cut out to be an entrepreneur or are you just running away from a problem or running toward a Vision?
