Entrepreneurship is not only about having a product or a service and being in business to sell them. It’s about what doing so enables you to do for yourself, your family, the people working with you/for you, and even total strangers. It’s about the change that entrepreneurship allows you to make in people’s lives, including yours. In that way, it is something truly special, a vehicle of change, a way to make your dreams come true.

Each one of us has dreams and desires, and a vision for the future, a vision for what life should be like. Dreams are really special because they come from the innermost emotions and feelings, from the innermost core of your being. And so, fulfilling them becomes a journey worth undertaking. For a lot of people, their dreams are large and that is completely okay. But, you also need to work continuously towards those dreams and goals.

Entrepreneurship is what allows you to manifest your dreams. Imagine the smile you can put on your face or your family’s faces when you finally achieve yours and their dreams. Imagine the look of wonder and happiness on your children’s faces when you are in the position to make their wildest dreams come true. Imagine how doing so would make you feel. Most probably, it will make you much happier than you would be fulfilling your own dreams.

I did something similar for my kids recently. I remodeled a section of the house to make a game room. Since my children love the game Minecraft, I thought of giving that room a Minecraft themed design. There is an XBOX player, bean bags to sit on, cool lighting and so much more. In fact, there is even a secret entrance to this room that is inspired by the game. The best part is that I gave this as a surprise to my kids.

Their reactions were priceless. You could see the wonder, excitement, happiness, and a whole host of other emotions at once. This is what a parent lives and works for. This is what entrepreneurship can allow you to do. You need to make sure that you put in your best efforts and keep working until you can make all your dreams come true.

If you haven’t already, take control of your life. Let no one else tell you what you can and can’t do. Let no one else dictate your life. Be the sole driver of your life. Take charge and run after your dreams with everything you’ve got. It will all be worth it in the end. And you will live a life of contentment and happiness.
