You don’t choose to be an entrepreneur…

“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.

In over a decade in business, I have seen very few true entrepreneurs; people who play big, who take real risk, who get way outside their comfort zone, who risk ridicule every day, who believe when others don’t, who evolve their industry.

It’s not that people can’t do those things, it’s that they won’t do those things.

Your comfort zone is an incredibly attractive place, and most people won’t actually leave it because they won’t leave what’s inside it behind.

If the life of being an entrepreneur is calling you, be prepared to leave a lot behind because the journey is tough.
