Not A Risk Taker

Well, honestly, I know quite a lot about business. I know what business I like--the area where I am good at--and that is publishing.

However, I am well aware that I am not a business person either. I am more of a temperamental, creative person who works when she wishes. That is why I don't like to rent and office and report there everyday. That would mean a routine for me, waking up at the same time everyday and sleeping at an appointed time, otherwise I would feel groggy the next day. In my present routine, I am okay because I get to stay at home and take care of my child and earn as well.

Do I envy those who have made it big in business? Well, I believe envy is not the word, but rather admiration. Because if there is anything common about these people whose fortunes are beyond simple accounting, that is their risk-taking attitude. Nope, it is not whether they have a moneyed background or not. It is not about education either. But rather the audacity or the courage to take a major step and risk whatever they have for the thing or business that they believe in. Many have failed, yeah, but so many more have succeeded.

But how come I don't make or take risks? Because I have a different personality. I am rather carefree, responsible, but carefree. I want to be able to live my life free of pressures. I am earning enough for my family and that for me, is already okay. I don't really need to become a millionaire. If God does allow me to become one, I am not sure if it is through a business.

Anyway, I am my own person. I know my strengths as well as weaknesses. If we are able to accept these things, then we would less things to worry about.
