I cannot help but think about this idea on a daily basis: The world seems full of people who are generally at peace with doing the bare minimum, climbing whatever ladder they happen to fall on and then complaining after.
“I have no money!” “I have no freedom!” “I hate my job!” Sound familiar?
Entrepreneurship is all about being able to identify opportunities at the right time and having the wherewithal to make the best of them. It is not easy to make it big in this arena, nor is success guaranteed.
So many people still hold on to their dream of being their own boss and running their own business because entrepreneurship offers a challenging, highly creative environment where there is virtually no limit on success.
A successful entrepreneur is a creature like no other, an individual who is willing to explore opportunities that no one else would dare approach, a person who is not just willing, but keen to do the thing nobody else will do.
