When I first discovered the quote ‘the entrepreneur’s creed’ it stormed my mind like a lightening bolt because I was having a burden concerning the high rate of business failure and the increase in unemployment, but when i came across the quote below felt relieved and this blog is that result.

This is an excerpt from the quote.

entrepreneur creed

Thomas Paine

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.

Thomas Paine, Common Sense
