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 of him/her and it seems that it is necessary for self-fulfillment and satisfaction.
The Satisfaction in Doing
The entrepreneur is not deterred by hard work. His/Her energy for acting is the joy of creation, and the work is done with great satisfaction.
An entrepreneur who chooses to engage in a field that comes from a naturally aroused interest and desire, motivated by a joyful attitude for success. 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 for photos in Silicon Valley, people looked at him like he was crazy and 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 a a photo-sharing site initiative 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 success.
Later, as is known, Instagram reached tens of millions of users and later 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 six and later the hobby became a business. His ability and willingness to overcome the difficulties of the bureaucratic, financial, and marketing processes of setting up the project, derived from a passion that comes from the satisfaction of doing.
Encouraging the joy of creativity in children:
