The responsibility for your future lies totally in your hands. There are few jobs today that will last your working lifetime with a single company. This makes the mindset of an entrepreneur a necessary skill that everyone needs.
The key ingredient in this mindset is accepting responsibility for your own future. You need to take control of the actions that affect your future. You need to be evaluating what is happening on a global level in the areas of your interest. You cannot afford to be blindsided when the company you work for is bought out, downsized or closed down. Are your skills still going to be needed next year? What new areas are opening up with more interesting possibilities? Can you have a better more lucrative career being self-employed?
Don't wait until you are in the unemployment line, working at a burger joint or facing welfare because you are no longer employable.
If you want the best for yourself and your significant others then pay attention; it's all in your hands. Be an entrepreneur.
