Don’t Give Up
Man is by nature entrepreneur.
I mean that entrepreneurship is something natural for man. From the time of caves, when man needed to find his own food, he found himself in a situation of entrepreneurship.
He had to deal with uncertainty, maybe he didn’t have food.
He had to look for opportunities, what are the closest and easiest hunts.
He had to deal with adrenaline, maybe I’ll die hunting.
He had to deal with indifference and disapproval from others when he returned to the cave without any game.
So this is deeply ingrained in the psychology of man.
With time and the structuring of society, something new emerged the job.
And by no means do I want to belittle this path here.
Besides that, I believe that every job is worthy and therefore deserves to be respected.
In opposition to the attitude of the one who, instead of looking for his own means, wants to have what belongs to the other, which is an anti-social act, which I repudiate.
Employment, which is something much more recent than man’s prehistoric entrepreneurship, is a path that has its advantages.
The greatest security, knowing that, as established in the contract, the person will receive a certain amount at the end of a certain time.
The predictability of being able to dedicate themselves every day to certain activities and not worry about distant aspects of their role.
And social recognition, after all, the person is employed, which represents for society in general, a more stable situation than the person who is not.
The entrepreneur, on the other hand, has an arduous task ahead.
He enters into an activity, as a caveman goes out to hunt, knowing that today he will not bring the game home, and tomorrow, and then…
Time passes and needs to be used wisely, the entrepreneur needs to intelligently allocate his resources, so that he can do the most important thing, in the shortest possible time, with the spirit prepared for the numerous course corrections.
Society looks at him as a dreamer, as someone who doesn’t live in this world and who is wasting his time and skills on something unworthy of most people’s attention.
But the entrepreneur remains resigned, through sleepless nights, constant doubt, the eternal quest to improve himself, and especially the practical sense that he needs to assume: today I’m going to kill a lion.
Little does he know, that this lion, can be a bear, or even more dangerous animal, (if it exists), in fact, he doesn’t even know what awaits him in reality and follows in the purest faith.
Believing that something he’s not seeing is going to happen.
Days pass, months, sometimes years.
The entrepreneur sometimes gave up on that idea, but he didn’t give up on undertaking, sometimes he even looks for a job, something in which he can have a minimum of financial security.
But he continues to feed in his heart a desire and especially a certainty, that one day the lamp will light up.
Sometimes the stars take time to align, sometimes they don’t, and one day like magic things start to fall into place.
In the world’s eyes, everyone thinks, when they don’t say: “wow, he changed overnight”
But deep down, only he knows what he’s been through.
The journey was long and tiring, with many obstacles and setbacks.
But in the end, he realizes that he was right.
And he thinks to himself:
It’s not easy, but it’s rewarding.
