Why must everybody become an entrepreneur?

17 August 2017 Read this article in Turkish

We all have great jobs. We can do everything for success. All of the moves we make are for a bit more happiness and to be appreciated. We are trying to do something that will not be forgotten in the world, because we all know that one day we will die and we will not be able to say any more words on this Earth. That's why we try to do something that people will remember us for.

Are there any people that have done this? Of course there are, like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and more. It is very understandable that we take these people as role models because we all want to be like them. But when we determine our goals as being like these people, we will be faced with unhappiness when we cannot achieve this in our life. I'm asking you, do we all have to do this? Serdar Kuzuloğlu, who I respect very much, has a tweet about this subject.

You solve the problems of the country and the world. I'm a man of little things. Someone has to deal with them eventually.

That's exactly what I want to say. We do not have to become Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. Not everybody needs to create great projects and earn billions of dollars with these projects. For example, why don't you lead these projects as a project manager? Why don't you just be the designer who solve problems perfectly? What is the difference between Bill Gates and us, when we set these goals and successfully achieve them? If we just want happiness and success, why don't we let achieving these goals make us happy?

We do not need to aim the highest, because if we do this, when we cannot reach this goal, we will become unhappy. Believe it or not, if we aim to do good things by working hard in our jobs, it will make us increase our life-standard like successful people. If we take the right decisions at the end of the day, we can be happy like our role model, even if they are Bill Gates or Steve Jobs.
