To be an Entrepreneur...

I do not choose to be a common man,
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 to build.
To fail and to 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 stale calm 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,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
This, with God’s help, I have done.
All this is what it means
To be an Entrepreneur.



Excerpt from Common Sense, written in 1776 by Thomas Paine
