Guru Speaks: The Entrepreneurs Creed

It's time to be refreshed...

"The Entrepreneurs Creed"

I do not choose to be a common person. 
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, and to fail and succeed.

I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.

I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence,
and the thrill of fulfillment to the state calm of utopia.

I will not trade my 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 -


All of this is what it means to be an Entrepreneur
-Sam Walton
