10 Inner-Ravanas An Entrepreneur Has To Fight Everyday

On the day of Dussehra, Ram defeated the demon king Ravana and in popular saying it is known as victory of good over evil.

However, as entrepreneurs each one of us have our own inner-weaknesses or inner-ravanas with whom we fight or have to fight everyday.

Keeping at par with the lessons we learn from our mythological roots, NASSCOM for Startups have listed the 10 inner-ravanas an entrepreneur fights everyday.

However, remember this, no matter how much they try to bring you down, in the end it is all about “Acchai ki burai par jeet”.

The Ravana Of Existential Crisis


Your day begins when you decide for it to begin. Each morning brings with itself a new set of opportunities and it’s upto you to make the most of them.

The Ravana Of Procrastination


Nothing happens later. It happens now. As an entrepreneur there is no such thing as “Let’s do it later”.

The Ravana Of Time


There are no ‘working hours’. Make each second, minute and hour count. In simple words, whether its day or night, it doesn’t makes a difference.

The Ravana Of Wealth


Being the CEO of your own company is cool. But the focus should be on building the company. Money will follow.

The Ravana Of Comparison


Friends and family may have a stable job and life but when you take the ‘road less travelled’, life promises wonders and euphoria in no bounds.

The Ravana Of Societal Pressure


“Log kya kahenge” has killed many a dreams than any other reason. You’ve found your path, now build new avenues.

The Ravana Of Tradition


Success and worth cannot be defined by a two pages long resume. Period.

The Ravana Of Sloth


Success doesn’t come automatically. Slow and steady might win the race but slow and slothy never does.

The Ravana Of Anxiety


It’s not easy to balance everything without losing your calm. But remember, there’s no better weapon than perseverance to help you win.

The Ravana Of Self Doubt


Don’t let your doubts stop you from achieving your true potential. Above everything else, believe.

So, on this auspicious occasion of Dussehra, let go of your inner-Ravanas and let the dreamer, innovator and creator in you win.

More power to you!
