Not everyone has planned their future from childhood. We have dreams that comes and goes and many does not have permanent affect. Some are like vague distant memories that we laugh at and some we regret letting go. Sometimes we have to live someone else’s dream and we are taught to grow up with only that as our goal. For them there seems to be no other choice. The society tells us what we should pursue and will look down on those who don’t. For an example the society sets standards for a successful man or a woman. The criterion with which they measure success is confined to popular notions like how much do you earn in a month, what kind of a job do you do, what kind of a car you drive and the value of your assets. There are type of jobs that are considered to be prestigious (is it a doctor, engineer or a lawyer?) and the other jobs are not as much recognized. Every parent dreams of getting a good and reputed job for their children. So most of us follow these socially accepted standards and fine-tune our lives to meet those requirements. Our whole life is geared towards it. Our education, extra -curricular, contacts and everything tends to revolve around it most of the time.
But remember this; all is not as bad as it looks or sounds. Even though there are socially accepted standards when it comes to your occupation still there are so many of us who dares to be different and manage to make our very own mark in the world. Look at Steve jobs for an instance. He was a college dropout and he barely had a stable job. But he experimented with an innovative idea and wasn’t afraid to take a bold step towards it and he ended up as one of the most successful entrepreneurs.
So don’t be afraid to start your own small business. If money is the problem then you find ways to overcome it. For an example there are loan schemes offered by banks that enables you to get equipment loans fast and easily. You can obtain a loan and pay it off in installments from the money you earn from the business.
There are loan schemes for almost everything like jet ski loans. So all you have to do is select the type of loan you want and then apply for it. But one thing that you will have to bear in mind is the fact that you must choose wisely. Don’t overdo anything.
Start small and later expand accordingly. No one gets to be a successful businessman overnight. All the successful business men and women you see now in the lime light are those who have gotten there step by step and a lot of hard work and preparation had gone behind it.
