If you have heard a voice inside calling you to become an entrepreneur, as I have in the past, dare it. Follow your heart and your instinct. I promise the trip will be extremely enjoyable.

“Remember, all the answers you need are within you; you just have to be calm enough to hear them.”
Should I Become An Entrepreneur?
For me, it was a series of signs, it started when I was a teenager. I was thinking, like everyone else, what would I do? what is my future who should I become? and one day I woke up knowing what I wanted out of my life.
I just followed my heart and never regretted it, I did the right thing. You should not let others tell you what to do. You know yourself better than anyone else.
Now if you ask me if you should become an entrepreneur, I would advise you to go for it without a second thought.
This is what I advise everyone, I strongly believe in people and their potential. And I know that deep inside you there is a tremendous power. But with great power comes great responsibility.
The question is…do you believe in your potential?
And I will ask again… Do you have the right mentality?
And you can think. “Maybe I’m not ready to become an entrepreneur yet.”
But you know, there really is no perfect time to feel ready for something so big, for such ventures that involve risk.
Even becoming a parent and having children is a risk. Will I be able to make it as a parent? What if I lose my job? If something goes wrong? If that? If the other?
If we wait to prepare, we will never start. You do not need to be ready, no one is. You just have to start.
“Trust your own madness”
said Clive Barker.
What if I make mistakes?
Really, this fear of people for mistakes is not something new. It stems from the depths of history and the beginning of the human race.
At a time when primitive people were exploring the world, a mistake could be fatal and you could lose your life.
Can you imagine not seeing the wild animal that was hidden in the grass waiting? Or did you fail with the javelin and have to deal with the beasts with your bare hands?
Unfortunately, this fear is ingrained in our DNA.
And then what can we do?
We need to embrace fear, to accept it as it is, and to begin learning from our mistakes. Mistakes and failures are inevitable but they are also the only way to success.
Also, you can not go wrong when chasing your dreams. Yes, you can make mistakes and fail here and there, but that happens to everyone, that is the rule, no one is infallible.
No one really succeeds on the first try. But that’s the real beauty in this “game”.
All failures, trials, and errors prove that you are on the right track, that you are trying, that you are training, that you are approaching your goal.
Do you have the right mindset?
I asked it before but let me rephrase it.
Are you ready to experience an unstoppable adventure? When you decide to become an entrepreneur then your mind can not rest. Your body can, but your mind must be awake and looking for improvements, every day.
Being an entrepreneur is not just a job that gives you money. No, it is above all an exploration game.
An unknown man said: “Entrepreneurship means living a few years of your life, as most people do not in order to spend the rest of your life like most people won’t”.
Although I totally agree with this quote, I have to add…
I do not believe that you can stop living this way once you get baptized as an entrepreneur. Even if you get old. But I promise you that this travel will be a gift of life.
No matter how many times I talk about entrepreneurship with my friends, I can not stop. They call me addicted, obsessed, but those who are entrepreneurs understand and smile.
Not everyone is the same…
If you are looking for adventure and if you want to do something remarkable in your life, something that future generations will remember, do not hesitate. Take the first step forward.

I have always been inspired by people who had the desire to explore the world and their limits. Those who tried, those who failed but never stopped there. They went ahead, they learned, experimented, gained experience, and the dream one day came true, part of their life.
One last quote for today by Tony Gaskins.
“If you do not build your dream, someone will hire you to build their own.”
