It’s a pursuit of happyness.
Nothing comes easy. Whether you’re a university student, an employee, or even have a family, you need to work hard to get what you want. Each of us dream in different ways. Some consider getting a car the greatest achievement they’ve made; others work hard to get a big promotion. After a very long list of achievements one can possibly pass, there comes someone called the entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs are those who spend nights after nights working hard to reach their goal; starting a company. They think big, see opportunities you don’t, take unusual risks, and make risky decisions on the spot. They get what they want. Entrepreneurs are persistent, determined, and focused.
So where is all this going?
I founded this magazine. Not in a day or two, not weeks, and not even months. It took me a whole year of hard work. I always used to look around and say why can’t I be this or that? Soon enough I realized I have to stop complaining and start taking action. This magazine wasn’t my first idea; I honestly lost count of how many failed attempts I went through to get to where I am right now. I was determined to do something with my life, start a company. I did.
You always hear these motivational quotes and speeches wherever you go. Instead of just posting them on your Facebook status, learn from them. I’m not saying you should go start a company, but if it’s something you want then do it. Don’t wait for an opportunity, make one.
If you haven’t watched the movie Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith, you’re missing out on a lot. In one of the scenes, Will Smith looks at his son and says:
“Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something. Not even me. Alright? You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.”
