Three False Myths About Being An Entrepreneur
Being an entrepreneur is not as glamorous as seen on media. What we usually saw are the successes, but rarely the years of relentless hard work and numerous times of failure behind these successful stories.
False myth 1: Everyone can be an entrepreneur
Some people want to be live in their comfort zones and that is totally okay. There’s room for everyone in all walks of life. Being an entrepreneur is tough, so I don’t recommend it to everyone. Building and sustaining a business is a day-in, day-out battle between uncertainty and willpower. There’s a saying:
Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.
All the beginnings are hard and it really takes tremendous amount of determination, self-discipline and endurance throughout the journey.
False myth 2: Most entrepreneurs want to be their own bosses
What it’s really like is that everyone else is your boss – all of your employees, customers, partners, and users are your boss. I’ve never had this many bosses and this many people to account for today!
False myth 3: Entrepreneurs can work whenever they wish
I felt like I had never worked this much and slept so little. But I am instilled with energy every single day because I know my time is put to the best possible use.
