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)…
Retaining the ability to be coldly ruthless, 'I can still make the head-shots (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.)
