In John Mason’s book “Know Your Limits – Then Ignore Them” there is the following paragraph on action, success and entrepreneurship:
“You cannot fulfill your destiny in theory…. It takes work. None of the secrets to success will work unless you put them into practice. You are made for action. You need good ideas and putting them into action to succeed. The free entrepreneurship system actually means that the more entrepreneurial you are, the freer you are. What we all need is to put less emphasis on the word ‘free’ and more on the word ‘entrepreneurship’.”
I agree with John Mason: entrepreneurship leads to freedom; many people in the world succumb to this belief that they have to work 9 to 5 for someone while actually fulfilling the goals of the company that employs them; others are convinced that by having their own company they “must” work 12 hours a day. So we have illusions and beliefs that can be changed.
After reading about 200 pages of Tim Ferriss’ book “The 4-Hour Workweek”, I have this thought:
We need to learn from those who challenged the status quo and dared to leave the 9-to-5 system, started to be freer, took risks that paid off.
Freedom comes from entrepreneurship. When you are entrepreneurial you have a chance for freedom, nobody will tell you “Tomorrow you have to come to work”. If you develop the skills needed as an entrepreneur you can become truly free: have time for everything and money for (almost) everything, which I wish you with all my heart.
Will you risk challenging the status quo?
Do you have the courage to make changes in your life and perhaps become an entrepreneur?
Dare to live. It’s YOUR life.
