Lifestyle Motivational Why Do People Choose Entrepreneurship If It’s Difficult? By Balraj Posted on 2 weeks ago 5 min read 0 0 68 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Linkedin The millennial generation is obsessed with making it out on their own through the fastest route possible. Getting rich in a short span of time and requiring a low amount of efforts seems like an impossible thing. But with the way that entrepreneurs are planning to run their businesses, it may well be within reach. Entrepreneurship is absolutely not the easiest path out there. In fact, many people actively avoid entrepreneurship because of the risks involved, the overwhelming amount of responsibility, the fact that there is no real work/life balance, and at the end of the day, every misstep or mistake falls on your shoulders. And yet people choose entrepreneurship because they want a financial reward on their own terms. They do not want to work so that someone else may reap the benefits of their toils. They want to make a name that will be their legacy. Source This is what makes entrepreneurship so rewarding, despite it being an extremely difficult career path. “Normal” jobs seem boring to potential entrepreneurs simply because they have a higher energy level that would be a waste of potential in corporate. What drives an entrepreneur is the opportunity to build a business and the excitement of implementing new ideas. The risk gives them a high that is unmatched and cannot be achieved in a normal 9-to-5 job. Any failure in the path only serves as a lesson instead of an anchor. And all these lessons combine to form the wisdom and experience of a successful entrepreneur. An entrepreneur does not give up on his endeavors. He or she has a dream which becomes a goal and the hustle required only motivates them more towards their ambition. Source There is a constant battle involved in entrepreneurship. Every day, a person faces new challenges and new questions to which he does not know the solution. The only way to find out that solution is to try time and again until the right answer comes forth. No idea will ever present itself on its own and there is always a hardship involved. Unfortunately, the attitude and endurance required in order to become a successful entrepreneur isn’t what’s taught in school. In school, you’re given the answer. You know what you’re going to be graded on. You are tested on your memory rather than creativity. Source There is a freedom of choice involved in entrepreneurship and it is this freedom that scares many people. No one is ever taught how to make the right choice. It is always all about instinct. A leader has to stand up for himself and for his team. He has to make all the choices and take responsibility of all his choices and strive to go on even if his choices are wrong. If he can do that, there is nothing difficult about entrepreneurship.
