It seems fascinating to a vast majority of youngsters, but hardly anyone knows that it is not just challenging, but also consuming. It takes your sweat and blood to make a startup grow, for you have a new challenge waiting for you every hour. One of toughest decisions in life is being a part of the startup ecosystem.
But as you move ahead, exploring the things you never thought of, you have pretty essential lessons to share with the world. Here are 5 inspiring quotes that will hold your back if you are in a startup ecosystem or are planning to be a part of it.
1. Keep Challenging Yourself
You must be knowing that you have to keep challenging your strengths whenever you are doing something different from the crowd. But more than your strengths, you must challenge your weaknesses. Take them to the extremes and discover new extremes for them. You will be amazed by the new limits that are formed.
2. Go For Dreaming
Never ever commit the sin of stop dreaming. It is the key to creativity that unlocks the door to a wide range of possibilities. You should draw your dream project in all dimensions before you translate it into a business plan. It might not necessarily be elaborated on paper but yes, it should be well explained with references.
3. Get Rejected
Failures are 10 times more important than success and criticism is 100 times more important than appreciation. The more you fail, the more you get criticised, the more problems arise, the greater things happen. Have patience. Get accustomed to hearing a 'no'. Rejections give you the best memories.
4. Do Homework
You must have heard the terms planning and strategy. No doubt they are important and relevant terms but startups thrive on 'homework'. You need to research and rehearse your idea before you put it before anyone. The 'homework' you do is the 'office presentation' you give. However, people in startups with agree that there is no distinction between home and office! Lol!
5. Find A Reason
Before bumping into any startup, discover the 'vision' and 'mission' you have. You must have a clear thought about your long-term and short-term goals. For common masses, anybody in a startup must be driven by reason and not by money. There can be various reasons why you must start chasing your dream. You just need to find one.
Well, a startup is like a seed. You need to sow it in the right soil and carefully water to make it germinate. It needs attention just like a plant needs sunlight. Once it gets a regular supply of all the nutrients, it shoots out of the soil, emerging above the ground and grows continuously. This is the time when your startup is in the world.
All the best for your startup journey!
