Whenever you talk to anybody about starting your own business all that you hear is a high chance of failure.
A lot of people prefer a secure life than a life full of struggles. After completion of my graduation, everybody around me was excited about my new job and that I am finally going to earn a living. I belong to a middle-class family and thus, education, as well as economic stability, is what we always seek. The middle class is always afraid of taking a risk and moreover afraid of failure. While growing up in the environment I too was afraid of failure.
During my graduation days, I was involved in cultural activities. It was fun to arrange events in the college and take care of the behind stage responsibility. While working on this task I realize that I have a potential to run business in event management area.
Although there was a lot of pressure to get good grades in graduation still I started working with an event management company. I used to assist people in the evening events and attend the college in the morning time. It was too exhausting but yet so exciting.
I was always happy to go on an event management work and never felt bored even for a moment. By the time I was graduated I was for sure that event management is what I want to do in my life. It was very difficult to disclose this passion at home.
I was in a dilemma to choose between the job that I got and the passion for working in event management field. But the passion has to win over the economic stability and I decided to speak to my parents about it.
I explained it to them in just 3 points-
- Economic stability over passion: I made it clear that a stable income will not provide satisfaction to me. A passionate job is what will bring satisfaction to my life.
- An easy way to hardship: Yes, I agree that you see a lot of struggle in the business field. But I am going to do what I love to do. So, the business way is an easy way to me. Moreover doing a job which I don’t like will be an everyday hardship for me
- Money and happiness ratio: As they say truly money can’t buy happiness. If I will do something I love to do the happiness will come automatic.
So, don’t move back because you are afraid of failure. The people’s perspective of failure is a bad economic condition but you can define failure as a lack of happiness in your life. Thus, make a choice towards your happiness and you will win the fear of failure.
