You may not be sure about starting your own project after seeing other work so hard towards a very unlikely outcome. However be sure that whatever you do, entrepreneurship will teach you many valuable skills and bring you a unique experience.
Not everybody chooses to follow an idea and make it come true. It takes perseverance, a vision and a lot of luck. Whatever the success of your endeavour, you'll learn to make a business model, communicate and raise money to execute it. Without anyone asking you anything, because you're the boss.
