Ninety-nine percent of the people who answer “yes” will fail. So if
this is your dream, what are you doing right now to turn that dream into a reality?
The world we live in has changed dramatically in the past 30 years. The way we work, the way we play and the way we view success has all changed, especially for the younger generations.
The entrepreneurial spirit is alive like never before, but it isn’t what you might think. While the youth of today want success more than ever, most people go about it all wrong and end up failing.
What we see on reality shows and social media is deceiving.
Overnight successes are displayed as if it is the norm. Living a luxurious life without working seems to be becoming the new dream reality; and to go along with that, the new “thing” right now is starting a business. It is the sexy thing to do.
People today are graduating high school and instead of going to college, going to grad school or saving for retirement, they want to start a million-dollar business. They want to be the next entrepreneur blowing up the Facebook newsfeed, yet they don’t know what is involved to actually get there.
99 percent of people don’t have the ability or skill to build a business that makes a million-dollar profit. The bottom line is that entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone, because it is a lot of work.
While TV and social media may make it seem like overnight success is a real thing, talking to any successful entrepreneur
will shed light on the true story: the failures, the years of making no money, the time spent learning.
So while the youth of today talk about being ambitious, they either lack the dedication it takes to go the long haul or have been given the wrong impression of what it takes to succeed. And this is why so many fail.
People who are in their 60s and 70s who have lived with the internet for over 20 years will be building online businesses that turn a million-dollar profit.
They will be the majority rather than those in their 20s. Why? Because unlike the younger generations who believe they know it all, this genre of people actually do.
They have lived. They have worked and seen the way the world operates. They know what problems need solving because they have lived through those problems. They also understand the internet, and this makes them more likely to succeed.
A lot of people are starting businesses, going into debt doing so and then losing it all when their business fails. After all, 99 percent of startups fail because people do it wrong.
But that doesn’t have to be your story. There are going to be successful, millionaire entrepreneurs in the future, and you could be one of them.
In order to build that successful business and become that million-dollar entrepreneur, work on building a foundation in your 20s and early 30s. Work for it. Understand that it does take time, and impatience will bring you down.
There is no easy money. Remember that.
