Will you be able to develop a new business idea? Can you organize an event and take the initiative? Are you capable of managing what you started and bearing the risk? These are the questions that one needs to ask young aspiring entrepreneurs. Simply put, entrepreneurship means to start and run a new business that is guided by the three-fold mantra – Develop, Organize & Manage.

The Dream of Entrepreneurship

The world of today needs people who are providers rather than be provided for. I’m sure the thought of doing our own business would have crossed our minds at some point in life. It has crossed my mind several times. I’ve always been fascinated by fashion and clothes and wanted to start my own boutique. But I ended up fulfilling this dream by playing Fashion Empire! Then I wanted to get into the Biryani business but ended up playing Cooking Fever! And so the list goes. Some of us are like that. The fact being, it is not so easy to hold fast onto an idea and work on it to succeed. Entrepreneurship is a tremendously hard task.

Sowing the Seeds at an Early Age

Schools teach the basic sciences and math that lay the foundation for higher education. They also teach students to think ‘out-of-the-box’, however the extent of going beyond the conventional depends on individual tastes. As compared to institutes abroad, Indian schools are limited when it comes to practical education. Most of us, irrespective of whichever generation we may be from, would have acquired more than our fair share of bookish wisdom rather than actual working knowledge of anything. This is one of the reasons we are afraid to venture into dark waters for the fear of the unknown. Books may teach us to flap our hands & legs and hold our breath to swim but reality is much more difficult, especially when one is taking baby steps!

Schools should accommodate a more practical method of education so that children will not be afraid to try what they want as they get older. For the seeds of ideas to germinate, a lot of effort, motivation and sacrifice is needed. While growing up, a young adult spends about 70% of his or her time in school, where teachers and peers have the power to make or break them. Therefore, it is very important for schools to realize this and groom each student with utmost care and responsibility.

Going Beyond the Obstacles

Entrepreneurs are not born; they are self-made. In our current society, it is not so easy to break the norms of convention and do something different. One needs to cross multiple stages of criticism, overcome layers of self-doubt, convince several people several times, garner enough capital & work hard like there is no tomorrow! Birth is never easy, either for the child or for the mother. However, once the baby is born, everyone around is happy and supportive. Same can be said for any budding business venture as well. The ideas are our babies and when they are born after much hard labor, it is a wonderful feeling.

To conclude, let me mention a few lines from the famous poem IF by Rudyard Kipling. Wishing the very best of luck to all those passionate about entrepreneurship out there.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
