The Age of the Entrepreneur – 12
1. Entrepreneurs are obsessed and addicted to their dreams and their freedom. They know their dreams and their freedom are not free; they are willing to pay the price because it is worth it. Entrepreneurs know that the obsolete advice, go to school get good grades and get a secure job with good benefits, does not work in the entrepreneurial economy.
2. Entrepreneurs are willing to pay attention to answers for questions they did not ask. They use their brains to tell their eyes to pay attention to the accidents and mistakes they encounter in the pursuit of their goals and dreams. They learn from their mistakes and keep getting better and better.
3. Entrepreneurs get comfortable with the uncomfortable. They know that it is in their discomfort that they find the truth and greatness. No pain no gain and no real story to tell. They pay the price for a desired lifestyle because it is well worth it.
4. Entrepreneurs live the joy of discovery. They live for the anticipation and the moments of discoveries. Joy is found in the pursuit of their goals and dreams.
5. Entrepreneurs generate their own dopamine. They find comfort and satisfaction in the craves for solutions. Their energy comes from a continuous flow of dopamine.
6. Entrepreneurs get rewarded for their curiosity. They are never satisfied with the way things are; they love to make things better. They love to go where no one has ever gone before.
7. Entrepreneurs are who they are for the thrill of achieving something that has never been achieved before. They know that money and fame are by-products of who they are.
Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Share them with others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
