Once, my physics teacher, who had a knack for teaching philosophy more effectively than teaching actual physics, made a thought-provoking remark in class: "How many people will you feed?"
He continued, "In a couple of years, as you enter the workforce, you'll find yourself responsible for supporting others. If you have a job, those you're responsible for, whether directly or indirectly, may include your family members, your spouse, and your children. Furthermore, if you employ individuals like drivers or housekeepers, you may also contribute to their well-being and the well-being of their families."
"So, let's consider that you have around 5 family members, and if you hire 1-2 additional people, the total number of individuals you impact may average around 10-15."
However, he emphasized, "On the other hand, if you decide to start a business, you have the opportunity to employ individuals who might be the primary breadwinners in their own families. Imagine hiring 10 people, and if each of them, on average, supports 5 others, your indirect impact expands to 50-60 people."
"Isn't that a remarkable and fulfilling endeavor?"
