There are countless other roads to happiness, prosperity, freedom, respect, and self-expression.
Now, if you have an idea and a burning passion to pursue it, and confidence in it, then by all means launch a startup! I wish you all the best.
However if your only reasons for wanting to be an entrepreneur are because it is "cool" or socially esteemed or because you envy other people doing it, you may want to reconsider. Those are superficial reasons for making career choices. They are not reasons you prefer one person over another, are they? Hence, they are not reasons to like yourself better either.
I personally like people who are sincere, authentic, and positive. Those are the things to aspire to. If that means being an entrepreneur, more power to you!
