Devoting all my being as an entrepreneur is a passion in life rarely described or even portray wisely from words. The complexity of the relationship demands outcome, fortitude, execution, insight, foresight, passion and will with stringent focus on improved value; but teaches there is no love lost or gained by trial of thoughts only finishes of enhancements from constant manipulation of ones self. My self decisions and survival; are they logical, moral, emotional or more times than not an entwined conviction of everything based on my life experience, knowledge and inspirations?
Entrepreneurship should be easy right? If you have the will to work hard, make a better life for yourself and be a little bossy from time to time, then this is the perfect job; but ask yourself can relationships be measured solely by fact or emotion? How will you decide what it takes to make the right decisions and if you don’t, can you recover from your mistakes. Look at your own current relationships, do your convictions stem from mostly calculated decision-making or emotional ones? Entrepreneurship is a wild beast that forces you to calculate and engage from both emotion and logic, while suppressing conflicting feelings, previous ego and/or stubbornness, so not to cloud the outcome of the task(s) at hand.
You may say to yourself, this is easy I can master it, I win every decision in my relationships which means I’m perfect for this type of responsiblity and decision-making.
Relationships in the entrepreneur business can have darker underlying intent and ugly unseen outcomes unknown to even those at the head of the command. You may think you’re winning a battle, because progression is happening which generally leads to monetization, providing a measurable example of success. Right?
What if you pushed to hard to fast just to reach your mark, you may have sabotaged yourself in ongoing stages that demand forever tending and nurturing to survive. I’ll give you an example; our dev team today is not the first or even second team we have comprised over the past 5 years, in fact its number three. Why? because you learn from your decisions, get blind sided by your inexperience and seek affiliation with people you believe can accomplish your visions. This sometimes is not solely composed of rational decision but instead emotionally engaged and later authenticated from calculation.
Be prepared for the long haul. Entrepreneurship is a test of time and your patience. Everyone has ideas, however can you manufacture and articulate them to others that understand the underlying intent? Finding your constituents is a very crucial and even painstakingly piece of the learned entrepreneurial puzzle.
Entrepreneurs are often categorized as being a little strange, impossible at times yet looked up to by those around them, but carrying such a large burden of perfecting logical and emotional outcome, its crushing at times even too much to handle for some.
Entrepreneurs tend to be positive. They are realistic and logical and have mastered empathy in a state as not to seem weak but to portray a nurturing way of understanding in complex problem solving.
Is it safe to say that too much friction within any relationship will end badly. As an entrepreneur you may not always get your way and each relationship has to be nurtured immensely and developed strategically over time with extreme care and attention. If you play it wise and deploy your convictions correctly, with some luck you may just be an entrepreneur after all.
