Do you wish to be your own master? You hate the regular job and entering the battleground of entrepreneurship is the only way you think to be successful in life. The unpredictable adventure of the career excites and inspires you the most. If this is so, then here are 5 reasons why you should consider leaving your cubicle and live your dream of becoming your own boss.
1.You don’t like the 9 to 5 job:The same monotonous job does not feed your passion for creativity and innovation. Living the same life the same way everyday doesn’t give you that kick. As an entrepreneur you get to decide what would be the work like, you get to try all those creative ideas which didn’t fit in the corporate environment.
2.You never like the idea of having a boss:For you freedom is your driving force. As Aaron Pitman, president and founder of API Domain Investments says,” I always wanted to be able to call my own shots, be in charge of my destiny, and have the ability to set my own life.” The idea of someone superior managing your work and having an authority over you annoys you the most. You believe that you can succeed only if you are your own master.
3.Taking risk is your forte:
“If you want it, go for it. Take a risk. Don’t always play safe or you will die wondering.” Sounds familiar? This is what you can relate to. You love taking chances and building a business from scratch needs a lot of confidence and risk. The idea of managing projects with high stakes without knowing the outcome: whether it will be a million dollar deal or a complete failure makes you smile. For you it is all about trying new ideas and methods even if the probable outcome is failure.
Albert Einstein once said, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” From the idea that made the Wright Brothers create a plane to the craziness that made people like Bill Gates develop software companies, they walked on the steps that others considered madness. They had firm faith and determination that their unconventional thinking can change the future.
5.You want to bring change:
Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” The thought of bringing change to the world and making it a better place is what comes to your mind when you think of entrepreneurship. You are always searching where your strengths and passions can make a larger impact on the world.
What good is an idea if it remains an idea? Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try again. Change the world so that 10 years from now, you can say you chose your life. You didn’t settle for it.
