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.”
