Entrepreneur’s Credo

Entrepreneur’s Credo
I do not choose to be a common man.
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can.

I seek opportunity … not security. 
I do not wish to be a kept citizen,
humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. 
I want to take the calculated risk;
to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.
I prefer the challenges of life
to the guaranteed existence;
the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of Utopia. 
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
nor my dignity for a handout.
I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid;
to think and act for myself, 
to enjoy the benefit of my creations.

And to face the world boldly and say:
"This, with God’s help, I have done."
All this is what it means to be an Entrepreneur.
