“I do not choose to be a common man or woman. It is my right to be uncommon- if I can. I seek opportunity- not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk- to dream and build- to fail and succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence- the thrill of fulfillment to the calm state of Utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence- nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master- nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid- to think and act for myself- enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly, and say– This I have done.”
I love this self-talk! I hope that you feel this way too. Choose not to be common or average. Instead, go against the grain. Observe the masses and do the opposite. Live life on the edge and enjoy every moment.
If you relate to The Entrepreneur’s Creed, I would like to partner with you! Let’s be uncommon together!
