Argument 1: Push economic growth
Argument 2: Reduce unemployment
Argument 3: Live a meaningful life
Counterargument: Some people argued that becoming the entrepreneur is harder than it looks.
Conclusion: Everything is not going to be easy in life and it needs risks to get something.
Some people said that becoming an entrepreneur is harder than it looks. We all know that everything is not going to be easy, especially to become the successful entrepreneur. Sometimes, people might think that as a new entrepreneur, money is everything to start their business. However, everything is possible if someone has been able to take a chance and decide what they want to do and go for it. In this topic, I definitely agree that everyone should be an entrepreneur and not to be afraid of being one. Here are three reasons why we should be an entrepreneur.
First is to push economic growth. President Joko Widodo says that do not be afraid to start (http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/03/27/dont-be-afraid-to-start-businesses-jokowi-tells-youth.html). The fact that a tougher competition will be happened in Indonesia, and the world is becoming much more open. Basically, becoming the entrepreneur is one of the important things to support our country during the global competition. Indonesia needs more young entrepreneurs, especially to boost Indonesia’s economic growth. It meant that to grow an entrepreneurship in Indonesia, the new market or new wealth is sure to be developed. For instance, as increasing of the employment, it would contribute to add the national income and Indonesia economic growth still remains well. That is why, to push economic growth, the entrepreneur should be in Indonesia because Indonesia economic growth still depends on the entrepreneurship.
Secondly, the main reason why we should be an entrepreneur is to reduce unemployment. We all know that a workforce in Indonesia grows faster than job opportunities. The fact that so many Indonesian who do not have the job. According to Jakarta post, youth unemployment for those aged 15 to 24 is a serious problem in Indonesia (http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/11/01/productive-indonesians-struggle-to-find-jobs.html). Indonesia still faces an unemployment problem and no doubt about it. In fact, the existing of the entrepreneurship is needed to overcome the unemployment. We can see that the workforce in Indonesia grows faster instead of having the job opportunities. In my opinion, the entrepreneur should be needed in providing new businesses to hire the employees who do not have the job. Because, there are still some employees out here who do not have the opportunities to have a jobs and usually, it happened in Indonesia because of they have no skill or lack the education. Thus, the entrepreneur should be there to overcome this problem whether to hire or to increase their quality of life.
Thirdly, the last reason why we should be the entrepreneur is to live a meaningful life. Basically, passion is a key to keep a business strategy moving forward. It means that you will take control of your life to make your dream come true. Steve Jobs has said that “People with passion can change the world” (https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/248079) and I definitely agreed about that. Being the entrepreneur is not just talking about how to get money, but it is talking about your pure satisfaction. Some say that as long as you follow your passion, a success will follow and it is true. Thus, do not be afraid to become one because everyone can be the entrepreneur and if you get into it, you will truly aware that your satisfaction is not just how to earn money but it is about something more to make your live meaningful.
Some people argued that becoming the entrepreneur is harder than it looks and to start new businesses, some say that you need to have some money first before you start. Everything of what they said is true, but if you do not try it, you will never know how to learn. It means that try something new and you will learn something from that. The fact that people out there are still afraid to take the risk, especially to become the entrepreneur. However, no one ever realizes that the process of learning is needed to become a better one.
In my opinion, there are still pros and cons about this topic, but I believed that everyone should be the entrepreneur, especially in Indonesia. It is good to have had a fear, but you need to go out from your comfort zone. Usually, the life begins at the end of your comfort zone and if you make some mistakes, it does not mean you will lose everything. Hence, I believed that everything is not going to be easy in life and it needs risks to get something. And making some mistakes is just the process of learning and if you do not try something new, you will never learn something in life.
