Deciding to do something entrepreneurial is like jumping off a cliff. Something pretty drastic is going on inside of your head if you decide to disrupt your life so severely.
For me, it all comes down to personal morals.
Etched into your brain is a book of commandments by which you live. A set of principles that govern the way to do what you do, and a code of conduct that guides how you judge the actions of others. And when the world doesn’t align, you get down right pissed. Uncontrollably fidgety. Maybe even sometimes violent. But it always ends up inflicting harm on your inner most thoughts until they bubble up, outwardly, and you go do something drastic like shun the comforts of previously paved roads so you can chart your own path.
Money, power, fame — all of these are strong motivators. But I tend to think, at least for me, one’s set of personal morals — specifically the ones you have that everyone else tramples on — is the biggest motivator of all.
