Starting a business on your own has suddenly turned out to be glamorous among the next Generation. Now, channels and newspapers celebrate IITians and IIM products’ success stories, leaving their jobs in some MNCs to set up shop in their home towns. Entrepreneurship is the new ‘in-thing’ among the youth now.
Now you have young CEOs, men, and women in their 20s, giving interviews about how they made it big from the pocket money that their dad gave them.
The landscape of Indian entrepreneurship is changing fast. Newer opportunities are being thrown open, and choices are far and wide. If you really want to start on your own or tread a path that no one in your family has even contemplated, then you are lucky because the time to do it is now.
Reasons to Really Start on Your Own and Quit Your Job
If you are still having second thoughts about resigning from your job, here are some points to clear your mind and your heart. These reasons are not the usual ones that you see in some self-help books. These are meant to tell you how you feel when you start a business rather than what you get.
Freedom: Have you tasted freedom? It’s sweeter than honey. Too bad, you haven’t taken a day off to do whatever you love best. Once you do that, you will know what freedom is. Once you start on your own, this is what you begin to feel. The days are brighter, the air seems fresh, and the whole world seems to bubble with purpose.
However, you must not think that starting your own business means you can sit around doing nothing. It’s the complete opposite of that. Freedom means the power to do what you decide to do. It is not an excuse to sleep all day.
The freedom to do what you like to do gives you an opportunity to be more creative and experimenting. This gives you more energy. When those creative juices begin to flow, you will be working double the time than you worked in your office. And you know what? You will never feel tired.
Meaning: Great men and women in history had one thing in common. They were people of great conviction. They were really committed to what they were doing. This gives them great meaning in life and a reason to live.
Once you begin your own business, you start to have a new meaning in life. No amount of salary or high profile job might satisfy your inner self’s desire for that meaning. Being a salaried person only gives you the satisfaction that money gives you. However, when you feel that you are not part of the bigger picture, you will feel all your work is nothing but a waste.
Respect: Being respected by your peers is something every man, woman, and child aspires to obtain in this world. People sometimes go to bizarre lengths to gain respect from others by being aggressive or threatening.
When you start your own company, you are really exerting your individuality. You are saying, “Hey, here I am.” This makes people look up to you. You are doing something that they can’t do. They will see you in a different light, as a confident person with a resolve to make it big. This respect is what you gain by starting your own business.
A job in an office or anywhere would never gain you that kind of aura like that of a businessman. You need not be an Ambani or a Bajaj to be respected. Even being a small-time businessman is enough to be respected just like those biggies.
Opportunities: When you are the boss of your own company, you have in front of you a thousand choices from which to choose the path that your company must take. This also throws open the door for you to grow and nurture your talents in the field you decide.
These kinds of opportunities never come to you if you are sticking on to a single job. There the only opportunity that comes your way is what your manager is offering.
Live in Harmony: When you are the master of yourself, and when you start to do things that you love the most, then you are in harmony with the whole world. That is when you really feel like you are living.
You can decide to spend time with your family, to go out and relax or take time off. Contrary to what people think, business people are more relaxed than people with steady jobs. They may have stress and tension, but they take it because they love to live life at the edge.
Take away the risk and challenges of a businessman, and you will see him wither in front of you. They love to live in danger and prefer a challenging life to one without any fun. Look at CEOs of big companies, and you will be surprised that most of them are really happy deep inside. This is one reason that they won’t frown as much as people with steady boring jobs.
Will you enjoy any of these feelings if you stick to your present job? If you honestly feel that you are enjoying all these in what you do now, then you must never think about quitting. However, for those who feel that they lack all those things stated here, it’s time you seriously think about your life. Throw away what all limits you and revamp your life drastically for the better.
Should You Start Your Business?
Every person serious and want to build his own empire, but at the end of the investment, they left that business and did not work hard to build their own business; that is why every second person fails to make his business successful.
In my point of we, you should have a proper plan and investment to start your business, and if you are serious and want to be successful, then you should really start your small business with low investment.
If you want to start your business, you should know the benefits and disadvantages of building a business or company, but you should always have a clear mindset, approach with the customer, investment, long-lasting thinking, etc., and then you can be a successful businessman.
