On the Psychological Price of Entrepreneurship

I recently read this amazing article on the Psychological Price of Entrepreneurship, and could relate to every word written. I shared it with my friend (entrepreneur and a senior banker) who wrote in with this masterpiece-

“I think the trick is to not forget the fact that the world is fundamentally a pretty simple place to survive in, as long as you have your health and a loving family / set of friends / other loved ones. The rest is just a journey where our own imagined “successes” and “failures” become our greatest stress points. Combine all of this and perhaps you get that ever elusive state of mind – contentment.

Take care, shake off that horrible feeling in your gut, remember who you fundamentally are and then,
of course, work hard but without living in constant personal fear.”

Thought it best to share :)

    Excellent post Nikhil! I read the article. Best lines were ” Build a life centered around the belief that self worth is not the same as net worth”.

      Thanks, Salil. Nikhil is a dear friend and an amazing author but I’m the one who wrote this and most of the content above is a part of my conversation with my mentor :)
