The journey to entrepreneurship is not so easy and not everyone is determined enough to sustain the vigor even in midst of the hurdles that come across. Fear of failure can be one of the most paralysing fears in this regard. It can play a significant role in whether you follow your entrepreneurial dream or not. Of course, fear can be a signal that something isn’t right, but fear can also be a way that self-sabotage keeps us from taking chances.
The exceptional species who possess the grit, find ways to minimize the risks inherent to business ownership, but it just need to be done- no one else will make it happen for you, so take a deep breath and make the leap. Many come and many go but only few sustain and leave the mark, while setting an example for the rest. Having read and heard of several entrepreneurial stories, which have been a source of inspiration for many; I thought of mentioning the name of Sahil, and whose thoughts inspired me a lot.
In a recent interview, Sahil Peerzada said “Have a plan, but be aware of the untapped resources and new ideas swirling all around you. They’re out there, you just have to recognize them and this is exactly what I did. Though, I do believe doing one thing really well can get you further ahead, but with growth perspective in mind you need to keep track of the ideas that strike and decide appropriately which ones to actually work upon”. That’s so true!! What keeps many of us on the backfoot is the failure to hold firm belief on our ideas. Once this is achieved success is not so far that it seems.
Sahil Peerzada is one such entrepreneur who started off from scratch but through sheer determination ventured into real estate and prospered. He believed in his instincts and followed them. The life of an entrepreneur is tough and Peerzada knew this well. Not only did he have to face massive barriers to get into the market, staying ahead of the competition and learning how to meet the growing demands all while on a shoe string budget was the need of the hour that he managed well on his level. The excerpt from Sahil’s interview has expressed “The power of idea”, as an idea can change your destiny.
