A river trembles with fear before joining the sea only till the time he looks back and realises that he has crossed many mountains and valleys kept moving thru out the journey never stopped irrespective of any terrain went with flow never stagnated.
Now the fear disappears and river understands it is not going to lose its identity but will Amalgamate with great ocean to become one … its final destination for a greater purpose. I can relate to this famous saying of Khalilgibran (with few lines of mine )
most of us go thru this fear before taking a plunge as a entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurship is mostly by choice and very few start out of necessity. Self confidence plays a very important role without which you cannot move a inch.
First mantra is never have No”s in our dictionary ,I can't ,I won't ,I couldn't ......But I would say why not ?I can, I will . This confidence comes learning rather willingness to learn which is eternal.only weak and lazy people give excuse as to how they can't ,won't etc. Here my sincere advise would be don’t even attempt since your mind has negated it by doubting your ability and once your mind rejected it you will fail any which case.
Eternal hunger for knowledge is mandatory.
To be a entrepreneur one really needs very high level motivation that too loads & loads of self-motivation. Not only being the captain of the ship one needs to carry his people across safely and productively need to be positive in all situations. Frankly speaking situations often leads to opportunity to do something new.
Any business you choose you need to be very passionate about it, but not emotional because emotion does not help you make money. An entrepreneur literally eats & breathe lives only his business this will lead him to the path to success, mind you success is not a destination it's a journey nor would I measure it monetarily.
Ethics is a primary rule a entrepreneur should follow and deliver with due diligence.
Personal life & Professional life is like a train on the track it has to run parallel through out ,never should meet otherwise we tend to derail & lose direction.
Entrepreneurship itself means risk, high amount of risks to be taken weighing the pro and con
As employer, as a leader we are socially obligated to help others raise, need to empower the workforce with constant training be it technical, creative, constantly do things to keep their energy level in high spirits.Ability to judge talent & nurture it, no person is born bad and good only thing that should matter is his way of working his approach.
Lastly I sum it up with my motto and I practise this ..."Vidya dadhati vinyam" Knowledge leads to humility, humility to reputation, reputation to Fame and fame to wealth and wealth to joy by giving others.
