Why do I get an orgasm by the word Entrepreneur?
I dream big, I have faith, I create, I live beyond fear, I take risks every day, I love the unknown, I love to live a life of excitement, I am resourceful, I not only master my mind but also realize the dominating thoughts of the same, I do not settle for less than feeling good, I already act like the person I intend to become, I live on purpose, I network, I am grateful, I induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others and cause them to believe in me because I believe in them, I always act from a place of love and honesty, I celebrate every single little milestone, and last but not least I BELIEVE in myself... I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR!
I remember, a few years ago when people asked me what I did for a living, I could never easily answer this question. I felt irritated and provoked by this polite, standard small-talk. I swear, I never used job descriptions as self descriptions, they only limited me in some way and facing the fact that despite my university degrees, several languages skills, international and intercultural background, I was an underpaid office worker! I am really sorry but there was nothing to be proud of – even though I was in a management position (WOW, big deal... nowadays everyone calls him/herself a manager).
Please do not get me wrong, I am not saying I was not happy back then and not satisfied with that situation but I have worked so hard, I have invested in myself my whole life long, there was no minute spent without planning my future, figuring out how to live a better life and trying to answer the question where I see myself in the next few years. My life was about many, many sacrifices. I was sitting at home working on myself, planning, daydreaming, relentlessly learning foreign languages, reading best-selling books etc.
I did not give up my 9-5 because of money only! Sure, I would like to have more because money is the new energy and without money I cannot serve others, I cannot establish a dog shelter and fulfil my dreams. I gave it all up because I was fantasizing about exploring a new ME, I wanted to know how far I can allow my mind to come in life and because I had a BIG VISION (- but this is another topic for another blog).
Please always remember that "life doesn´t have to be so damn hard. It really doesn´t. Most people, my past self included, have spent too much time convincing themselves that life has to be hard, a resignation to 9-to-5 drudgery in exchange for (sometimes) relaxing weekends and the occasional keep-it-short-or-get-fired vacation" – could have been my words, dear Timothy Ferris (author of The 4- Hour Work Week).
To summarize it all, now I can proudly say I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR, a life designer, a life creator, a life lover and hell yes, this equals with an amazing mental orgasm ... sorry, now I gotta go and light on a cigarette... :)
