Do you want to be your own boss? Or achieve the desired economic freedom? Or perhaps change the world? These are totally respectable attitudes, but they define a narcissist much better than an entrepreneur.

An entrepreneur is someone in love with a problem to solve. Maybe they are an expert in the field and knows how to attack it. Perhaps they don't have the knowledge, but they do have the resources. Or simply that passion for the problem drives them to solve it at any cost. Whatever the case may be, there is always an implicit passion to solve a problem.

The entrepreneur can never lose sight of what he or she wants to solve. Many fall along the way in love with their solution, putting the way over the goal. Falling in love with the solution, however elegant it may be, is a bad idea. The solution will have to adapt or even change abruptly because reality is often not what is in our heads. Believe me, ideas always pivot, solutions always change. And whoever is not able to see it falls into a self-destructive hedonism.

Find a problem that is really worth solving and go for it. It is the noblest and unique way to start on the path of entrepreneurship.
