Hi Legend Already Made, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
its little more than a quote its part of my affirmation list that i have memorize i say it everyday its an excerpt from common sense written by Thomas Paine . it means a lot to me because the words help me get through tough times in NYC when i was still trying to find my way & i like how perfectly Thomas Paine constructed these words in 1776 and its still relevant to me today. 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.
