So You Want to Be an Entrepreneur?  Too bad!

Have you always wanted to be an entrepreneur?  Have you always thought about what life would be like as your own boss, ordering around employees while you smoke a cigar while you talk on your cell phone?  You’ve always longed to be a business owner and have had many dreams about it.  Well, I’ve got news for you, it’s not happening.

So You Want to Be an Entrepreneur?  Too bad!

Why am I saying such a thing?  Why would I say it’s not happening? Well, I’m not sure where to begin, but I guess I will start with your work ethic. It sucks. You say you want to be an entrepreneur but you watch movies more than the late Roger Ebert.  You spend your free time doing barely anything productive and no, the new Madden game for Play station 4 does not qualify as productive, sorry.  You want to be an entrepreneur “so bad” except you don’t work for it. Real entrepreneurs work hard, period.

Next,  your attitude is crap. Your whole life you have always thought about how you wanted to own a business, but yet these past few years you’re constantly muffling under your breathe negativity and reasons it’s not possible. Entrepreneurs have a positive attitude and find the good in things. They don’t walk around finding problems, instead they find solutions. They make the most of their lives and realize that a positive mindset goes a long way. One thing is for sure, you certainly won’t be a successful entrepreneur with that attitude you have now.

Entrepreneur Sleeping

Why else can’t you be an entrepreneur? You’re scared. You are scared to take a leap of faith. Business involves risk and the closest you’ll get to risk is the board game. At some point, being in business is about taking a chance and going after it. You’re also scared you are going to fail. Scared that things won’t work out. However, there is possibly nothing more valuable than what you can learn from your failures. You can’t be an entrepreneur because you’re living your life in fear and until you step up, being in business isn’t an option for you.

Yet another reason you won’t be an entrepreneur anytime soon has to do with your growth or lack there of.  Entrepreneurs don’t ever think they know it all, instead they are constantly reading, listening, learning, and growing. You haven’t picked up a book since the 12th grade. I mean, what could you possibly learn from a bunch of entrepreneurs that have built multi-million dollar enterprises in some cases.  If you haven’t figure it out, the answer is a lot. Personal development is a billion dollar industry because so many people understand the value of continuing to grow both as a person and as an entrepreneur.

The final reason you won’t be becoming an entrepreneur is because you have no goals. You have no vision. You want to be this big shot business man, but you have absolutely no plan whatsoever to get there.  It doesn’t work like that.  Entrepreneurs have a vision and they also establish goals for both themselves and their businesses.  The only goal you’ve set in the past decade is trying to beat every game in the Call of Duty video game series.  Until you sit down and set some goals for yourself along with a plan to achieve those goals, being an entrepreneur isn’t in the cards for you.

Sorry,  I don’t mean to be so harsh, however, the fact of the matter is you say you want to be an entrepreneur but you do nothing about it. You don’t think positive, set goals, and work hard. You refuse to continue educating yourself and are scared of failure. That’s not what entrepreneurs do. Entrepreneurs do the opposite of those things and that’s why they get to run a business.  In my opinion, there is no greater career in the world than that of an entrepreneurial one, but always having aspirations of being in business and actually doing the things necessary aren’t the same. In fact, they aren’t even close. And it’s for all these different reasons that you won’t be an entrepreneur.

You think I’m wrong?  Then prove it.
