He always dreamt of doing something of his own rather than be part of a regular 9-5 job. But then, he realized that making money was important too. And so he set about building his capital before beginning his adventure.
When he began his personal venture, things didn’t exactly go to plan. Due to his inexperience and some bad advice, he ended up in a legal quagmire. He finally realized that being an entrepreneur was quite a different kettle of fish compared to what he had experienced till date. But then he thought to himself –
“I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has its own reason for being.”
He knew that quite a crowd would gather seeing him fail and fall. While it was not quite an amble through the park, he slowly but surely started reaping the fruits of his hardwork.

I imagine this is the story of many entrepreneurs. It takes a leap of faith to start a business.
Oh it always does. Sometimes calculated risks are meant to be taken in order to achieve the bigger goal in mind :).
This made me smile. It’s never as easy as we want it to be. And that crowd scare away a lot of people. I’m glad it ended on a positive note, with hard work paying off.
Thanks :). Persistence did eventually pay off :D.
Thanks Rob :).
I love this as it’s so true. It can take so many set-backs and paths diverged to get to a point that we’re happy or content with. I’d imagine it would be similar with entrepreneurs as this story implies. Very well-written and it’s completely evocative.
Thanks Lucy :). I am sure entrepreneurs do go through quite a lot many challenges before tasting success. And that’s what makes them stronger for the challenges that lie ahead.
