A lot is said about the wonders of entrepreneurship and every second a new case appears on the Internet talking about young people who seem to be successful overnight. Everything seems incredible, but is it really?
Don't be fooled by the incredible world of entrepreneurship. Wake up Alice!
Entrepreneurs are the most affected by diseases such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks and tend to develop really serious problems throughout their careers. The price of entrepreneurship can be very expensive for your mental health.
Major successful entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, the powerful boss of Facebook, are considered true heroes. But many of these successful entrepreneurs carry their secret demons: before becoming great entrepreneurs, they struggled through moments of almost debilitating and desperate anxiety in which everything seemed to go extremely wrong.
Young people view articles that praise highly successful entrepreneurs and everything seems incredibly easy and fast. Sit here and let me tell you a little bit about the dark side of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship requires that you are a SUPER HUMAN. Seriously, S.U.P.E.R.S.H.U.M.A.N.O! In social networks is launched every second a new image that tells you to always be the best, the most dedicated, the most intelligent, to get away from negative people, to take care of your health, to wake up the 5 A.M. The high performance speech has never been so high. Coaches act without any supervision, demanding high performance, applying methodologies used by psychologists trained in a nonchalant way. Comparing young beginners to great businessmen. "If he's got it, so will you! Pay the price of being the best!"
Young man, stop comparing yourself! Have these great cases as parameters and indicators of what to do and what not to do. Each person has his or her own time and personal and social challenges to face. With the end of yellow September, I would like to warn the young people who are entering the entrepreneurial world. Take it easy! You will be required VERY, so take the time to get to know yourself and define your values and limits.
Keep in mind that you are entering a Jurassic terrain, the old entrepreneurs fear the new and innovative so get ready to hammer yourself! And don't be embarrassed to seek psychological help. Don't you have someone you talk to and feel alone? Get help!
Don't want to be a business machine, be an entrepreneur on purpose.
Help people solve problems.
