Entrepreneur? Ha!

Page 1 2

I don't fit the entrepreneur stereotype.

'I'm just a simple guy, I live from day-to-day…'

Silly though it may sound, I really am into 'doing business naturally and honorably'… favouring generosity and respect over selfishness and exploitation.

I'm a willing exile, a renegade, from the 'men in neckties' brigade… and eschew the usual hustle-hustle-hype 'leaders in our field' shenanigans.

Choosing to do things in an informal, relaxed, and non-pushy way… I'm not a rough'n'tough 'un. Relatively, probably a bit of a sissy.

That 'sleep-is-for-the-weak, respect-only-force, struttin'-around-like-Captain-Invincible horse-in-my-shorts testosterone-overload alpha-male-macho-bullshit-trip' nonsense is anathema to me.

If you're one of those powerhouse-types we're probably not right for each other.

So yeah… 'i am meek and warm and soft to the touch'.

Castaneda readers might suggest this a natural part of the 'warrior's battle against self-importance of the ego'. Others may simply consider it stupidity.

Whatever. Idealistic nonsense though it may be, I'm simply suggesting 'modest and self-effacing' is a viable alternative to the 'be powerful and dominant' ethos… and that 'gentleness and respect, not might' is, to me, a far better way of conducting my activities.

Self-confidence has never been a strong point of mine, and that I'm not particularly 'dynamic, focused, ambitious, assertive, money-oriented' is something about which I'm still more than a little uncomfortable, but am learning to live with.

Perhaps paradoxically, and I'm fully aware of the apparent arrogance of this statement…

'I can still make the head-shots (no, not the photographic kind), but no longer care to take them'.

So please… don't mistake gentleness for weakness, or lack of desire for inability.

(Yes, I really did say that.)
