Entrepreneurs need to be a fighter!🔥

Running a business has a similar effect of being in a highly traumatic experience.

It will find your weak points and exploit them. It will bring you to your knees. 😔

It will cause you to question everything, taking away your sense of security and fill you with so much shame and guilt over every mistake—or things you simply perceive as a potential mistake.

Isn't it?👀

You are the final escalation point and supposedly in control of your company, but you are overtaken with feelings of being out of control as you grasp in the air trying to steer the ship.

Everything feels like your responsibility and you are accountable for it all.🧐

With all of that, what do you do to take care of your mental health throughout your entrepreneur journey? How do you keep yourself calm?

I can't keep calm. I am always stressed. Now the frustration come out in anger. And the anger is directed towards wife and kids. Or by breaking things.

Bhavik Jain

Sirjee, are you joking?

Millind Maane

Why Should you think I am joking? I am on the verge of collapse, ne collapsed. What does it matter? Let's see if anyone can remain calm, if there is no money in account or nor anyone willing to lend you. Everyday a debtor calling up askingfor money. You ask for help from a hundred places and you are disappointed. Let see if anyone can stay calm. And you asked a question, I gave you an answer. What is there to joke about.

Bhavik Jain

there is no specific point but the whole answer just made me thought that you are joking about directing your anger towards wife and kids.

I have been in a similar situation where there is no balance and then there are people standing with bills at your door but then did you try finding an alternative source of income viz working as consultant or joining a job?

Millind Maane

I am obsolete and outdated. No skills as such which gives value in a job market. Have been working since 18. No degree in hand and no knowledge of coding.

Bhavik Jain

Your work ex can help you find a job in startups as corporates are rigid when it comes to degrees.

Coding isn't the only skill which is required, you can get jobs for skills in sales, Operations, marketing, logistics etc

Millind Maane

in this scenario, is it possible to get a job, realistically? And I am applying everywhere. But still no response.

I hear to satsang- gurbani , listen music and meditate

Bhavik Jain

I too listen to music but far away from meditation

Rajas S Pathak

Carrom & the game of Cricket, cycling, exercise & some music helps me to fight this.

I am a calm & poised person by birth so that helped me in the first 3 months of my firm. The saying - 'SABR KA PHAL MEETHA HOTA HAI' has really worked for me in theseyears - not only business but in the other aspects of life too.

If you put yourself in unfavorable condition, you start learning to have patience & can sustain in such condition. You also come to know about your real strengths & weaknesses. You work them out & make the condition favorable!
