It’s True! YOU Are An Entrepreneur!!

We Are All Entrepreneurs

The modern definition of the word Entrepreneur can be described as a person who has possession over an enterprise, or venture, and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entrepreneur)  In common understanding it is taken as describing a dynamic personality and someone who attempts to organize resources in new and more valuable ways and once more, completely accepts full responsibility for the outcome. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/entrepreneur)

Here’s an insight… We as humans naturally organize resources vital to our lives in new and more valuable ways in order that we may reach certain and specific outcomes, especially if those outcomes are directly related to our well being and survival.  For example, we organize our mental resources to apply and compete for specific types of jobs so that we may earn the income necessary to secure for ourselves a lifestyle suitable to our chosen comforts and desires.  Another example can be found in our choosing to go to college,  seek specific training,  or taking certified courses with a personal/business development company, so that we may become more valuable to our employers and in turn more valuable , successful, and ultimately reliable to ourselves and our families.  We make many decisions and ultimately we must live with them and their outcomes. We risk our time, our money, our efforts for an unknown outcome. In short we are all risk takers and in business for ourselves, and so we are in a way, all entrepreneurs of a sort, seeking to capitalize on the ever emerging opportunities and resources that we continually see come before us.  Robin Sharma (Sharma Leadership International) alludes to a certain parallel so well when he describes humans as their own corporation and labels us as Humans Inc., so to with Earl Nightingale(Nightingale-Conant Corp) and Brian Tracy (ilearnginGlobal) when they envision all of us as CEO’s of our own personal lives.

It is my belief that we are all responsible for this personal venture/enterprise known as our life.   I choose this example not because it’s a good metaphor, but because it captures most completely the essence of the human life;  which can be seen as an adventure, a  journey, a place of risks, and an environment that is continually changing, becoming, and evolving.  Businesses come and go…but the entrepreneur always remains.  And so yes…It’s true!  YOU area an Entrepreneur!!
