The only way out for an injured individual like me was entrepreneurship. It gave me a chance to live, not to just exist.
Since I was a child, I have a strange feature - I can't take a step in a direction I don't believe in. This created a lot of problems for me at school. I often argued with teachers. I refused to study subjects in which I did not see the point and asked questions that seriously annoyed some teachers.
I had similar problems in the family. My parents demanded that I follow the generally accepted norms and procedures. I lived with my grandparents, who were teachers. They were poor and were additionally engaged in agriculture and animals in order to be able to provide for themselves. They had to work 16 hours a day and still remained poor. They accepted their place in the system and did not believe that anything could change for them unless the government decided to improve their lives.
I saw that day by day, month by month, year by year, their lives were the same. I looked around and saw that the people in the neighborhood lived the same way. I definitely didn't like it, and even though I was little, I realized that I had to live differently if I was to expect a different life.
This created problems for me because I shared with them about my big dreams and they went crazy thinking that I would experience great disappointments. They tried in every way to get me in the “right path” so that I could live a reconciled life without high expectations, but also without great disappointments. This strangeness of mine also manifested itself in the military.
My reluctance to do things I don't believe in or don't think is right has made my life difficult. The problem was not only me, but also the fact that others could follow my example. For a year I fought with the military and the system, and neither my life nor theirs was easy. The same thing happened in my higher education. I finally realized that there was no work for the likes of me. There was no company I liked and no boss to follow (not because I couldn't follow, but because the people I met didn't inspire me).
The only way out for
an injured individual like me was entrepreneurship. I could do things I
believed in and organize a system that I thought would be fair to the people I work with. It gave me a chance to live, not to exist. In my over 20 years of practice, through learning and practice, I have learned a lot about how to be successful and free and I still have a lot to learn.
Today, as in the beginning, I feel like an 18-year-old boy who can conquer the world. I have dreams, I have energy, I have an incentive to live, but I am also ready to sacrifice my life for my beliefs. According to a friend of mine, I'm drugged with cocaine, but 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Entrepreneurship gives life as long as we do not do it for money, but we use it to follow our beliefs. This is the reason I embarked on this adventure and I am thankful to God for giving me this opportunity!
If you feel what I have felt and I have no doubt that this is your path.
Take it and live it
with all your heart!
