Entrepreneurs Are Crazy People!

Entrepreneurs Are Crazy People!

Entrepreneurship is the zone between normalcy and total madness.

A calling from the dark. A voice from the deep well of your spirit.

Entrepreneurship is not measured just by your past appointments, achievements, accolades and awards.

Nor is it measured by your colour, custom, community, creed, or country.

Entrepreneurship is measured by the spirit of your heart, size of your guts, and strength of your drive.

An optimist says the glass is half full. A pessimist says it’s half empty.

An entrepreneur asks, “How can I drink from it, sell it, or use it for a higher purpose?”

Therefore, entrepreneurship is not just about starting a business or owning a company.

It’s about capitalising on opportunities with the least possible resources and if possible, with no resources.

Serving a higher cause, developing win-win relationships, and achieving the best possible results.

Entrepreneurship is one of the greatest equalisers in life. It’s one of the best pathways for ordinary persons to achieve true freedom.

One of the most powerful solutions to eradicate poverty and many other challenges in life.

A good entrepreneur cannot be disrupted by a robot or an army of robots.

However, an entrepreneur can create robots to serve others.

Entrepreneurship is a cultivated discipline that is vitally needed by every person in any sphere of society.

Entrepreneurs don’t just work for others to make their visions come true.

They also work for their chosen visions to come true – regardless of the efforts, sacrifices and battles to make it happen.

Entrepreneurs don’t wish for a more comfortable life. They work on becoming a better entrepreneur to make life more comfortable for others.

They are trouble-seekers, and are constantly finding problems that require a solution.

Entrepreneurship is about pursuing a meaningful, exciting and fulfilling life.

That’s why, entrepreneurs can come across as crazy people who risk their money for their dreams rather than risk their dreams just for a monthly sum of money.

They are unreasonable. Hence, they are frequently unemployable.

To be a great entrepreneur, it’s not just about IQ or EQ, but also about DQ.

DQ stands for Desperation Quotient.

How desperate are you to be a successful entrepreneur?

Is there a compelling gain that you want to achieve as an entrepreneur?

Is there a compulsive pain that’s driving you to become an entrepreneur?

If you don’t know what you want, you’ll never put your heart and soul to become a successful entrepreneur.

However, if you know what you want and you are “desperate” to get it, then nothing can stand in the way of your success.

In the final analysis, entrepreneurship is about doing the things that most people are not willing to do so that you will not have to do the things that most people will have to do to stay alive and live well at a later stage in life.

Know why I’m an entrepreneur?

It’s the closest thing I can find to magic.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
