Have you ever felt like you weren’t always sure the way you’re headed is the right way?
What if you didn’t have anyone to reassure you that what you are doing is the right path for you or what you're doing is even right or wrong?
Welcome to the game of entrepreneurship.
It’s a world where more often than not you’re by yourself, making decisions that can impact your entire business and life and you have almost no one who has walked in your shoes to talk to on a daily basis.
With decisions that can so profoundly affect you a helping or guiding hand is often something, you would want or need and that's why there are so many mentoring groups and consultants out there.
But as an entrepreneur you make these decisions, formulate new ideas and develop strategies all from within your own head and these ideas are CONSTANTLY flowing.
With this, you are left thinking about everything from A to Z often in a continuous way with a seemingly night and day focus and often no way to actually turn it off.
From the moment you wake up these things are on your mind and when you go to bed all the information you need to process is still racing through your mind and it's your ultimate responsibility to execute on these ideas,
With all of this comes an extreme amount of stress and pressure to learn to live with and to be comfortable with and even start to embrace. It's quite the addicting experience!
Because through all the pressure and loneliness there is no better feeling than acting on your thoughts and ideas and along the way not really having a clear idea as to whether any of it will work. Because you are LITERALLY forging your own path.
When it comes down to it entrepreneurs are the ultimate executors.
We think, act and analyze on a constant basis. Chances are while you’re still thinking about doing something an entrepreneur has acted on several of these things.
And we’re lonely because we don’t have other executors with us, we’re often the founders of our companies who bear the burden of growing something akin to our child.
No one else can possibly understand how important this game is to us.
And because of that, we live this life to where we forge our own paths, create new industries and do things most people would only dream of doing.
The excitement, the anticipation, the thrill, the loneliness, the sadness, the stress all culminate to create an epic lifestyle that leaves a legacy for generations.
To me, it’s always worth it though sometimes I’m riding high and sometimes I’m a little down I always end up proud of what I’ve accomplished and built and amazed that my thoughts have been turned into reality on a consistent basis and that so many people believe in what I do as an entrepreneur.
Thank you to the risk-takers, the doers and the people who build industries we all wish we could be part of!
