From my private journal, dated 28th Dec’16
“Entrepreneurship is not for the faint hearted”
“Learn how to manage stress, tension, depression, lows..”
“Work with people who are strong, have worked out of their comfort zone”
In March 2017, I was fortunate to join Acadview and meet Himanshu Batra (Founder, CEO)
Himanshu is one of toughest (mentally) people I’ve ever met and been close to. He never gave up, even when the times were really tough.
Only by working with him so closely, I realized that Entrepreneurship is a battle of the mind more than intellect.
One of my mentors reminded me recently “A ? Diamond is just a piece of Charcoal that Handled Stress ? Exceptionally Well!”
Now, I’m working on my mind. And, I’m more prepared than ever – since I have realistic expectations and know what could go wrong…to what extent, etc.
In my book, Trapped (which is about self awareness), I have also discussed my way of creating and validating thoughts/assumptions/hypothesis and minimizing risk. #Trapped
