The Joy of Creation as a Motive for Entrepreneurship By Galit Zamler
The joy of creation promotes the expansion of limits and the development of the entrepreneur. It testifies to the vitality and aliveness and it seems that it is necessary for self-fulfillment and satisfaction.
The satisfaction in doing
The entrepreneur is not deterred from working hard. His energy for acting is the joy of creation, and his work is done with great satisfaction.
An entrepreneur who chooses to engage in a field that comes from a naturally arouses interest and desire is motivated by a joyful attitude to success because the joy of creation is the willingness to give 100 % of yourself.
Here are some examples:
We all know the Instagram app that started as a site for sharing images with followers on the web.
One of the founders, Kevin Systrom says that at the beginning, when he first thought of setting up a site of photos, and told about it to people in the Silicon Valley, people looked at him like he was crazy, and they had a look that asked: "You left your job at Google to do what?" and, "Why would you work on photos? Photos is this thing that's been covered by Flickr, Facebook does it now,".
But despite the cool reactions, he decided to set up the project. He said he had already left the job and wanted to create something.
The choice of an initiative that is a photo-sharing site was natural to him, since he always dealt with photos, whether in photography, editing, or in cameras.
The urge to create something else, especially in the area that the person knows well, helps to success.
Later, as is known, Instagram reached tens of millions of users and Facebook acquired it.
The same applies to entrepreneurs in other fields. for example:
The Israeli entrepreneur Asi Vaknin, discovered the joy of creation, which led him to succeed in setting up a club and a surf school.
ASI's interest began surfing at age 6 when surfed at sea, and later the hobby became a business. His ability and willingness to overcome the difficulties, bureaucratic, financial and marketing process of setting up the project, derived from a passion that comes from the satisfaction of doing.
Encouraging the joy of creativity in children:
Finding areas where children are interested in, and/or making interesting areas for children will encourage them to the enjoyment of doing and striving for excellence.
