Entrepreneurship is often seen as a fantastically wonderful, magical, journey, blissfully gifted to people, as the world seems to naturally fit to their demands.
This is complete bulls**t. Entrepreneurship is a quest for freedom, it is a hard, arduous and strenuous journey, and it is not at all easy. Ask any successful entrepreneur, and they will likely mention these hard truths:
1. Work Never Ends
When you run a company, weekends do not exist, nor do “work hours”, it’s not a 9 to 5 job anymore, it’s a 24 hour, 7 days a week commitment. However, to an entrepreneur, this is a good thing, they live for their business.
2. Failure is the Most Probable Outcome
Unfortunately, most startups do end up failing within the first five years, and it can be menacing to start your own business knowing this, but I’ve actually written an article about this 90% Of Businesses Fail In Their First Five Years: Why You Should Start a Business. As the title states, start the business anyway. It’s time to let go of this irrational fear of failure, do your best and more, if you fail then learn and try again.
3. It’s Worth It
Despite the massive amounts of work needed to get started as an entrepreneur, and despite the fact that failure is the most likely outcome, ask any successful entrepreneur and they’ll always, I assure you, say that it was worth it.
Entrepreneurship is a journey towards freedom, I urge you to take the first step.
