    The following credo has been attributed to Thomas Paine by some and to Dean Alfange by others.

    The 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 of calm 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.

    It would be nice to know who really put it together but more important than that is how significant the creed is. It gives no hope of an easy way, but it highlights the rewards for putting in the hard work. I like how it reaches out for God's help because i sure know when I've gotten to those points where I just about feel like giving up. First time I've seen it. Thank you for sharing.

    That totally sums up what an entrepreneur really is. Venturing in any kind of business is always going to be a huge risk, you never know what's going to happen, if it's going to succeed or fail. But what's important is that at least, you tried, and that you just didn't settle for less, but pursued your goals.
