What’s holding you back?

I meet a lot of people as part of my work, both socially and professionally, and most people talk about how they envy my ability to step out and become an entrepreneur.

While there are benefits of being accountable to your self, there are challenges of cash-flow, inspiration, seeking within self for motivation and the biggest of all, having no one else to blame for your failures!

But, this is not about me. The same people who envy an entrepreneur also talk about how they would love to do the same, if

The big 

if

Sujit Sumitran is once such person who kind of challenged the ‘big if’. During the recording of the Leadership Insights series, Sujit talks about being diagnosed with a heart condition at 40. A illness that could have possibly crippled his love for the outdoors and sports. As he went through his post operative recovery, he was advised by a lot of people, including his doctor, to start acting his age and living the life of a heart patient.

Sujit took everyone’s well meaning advice, considered it, but decided to follow his own heart. He has today run multiple half marathons, is preparing for a full marathon and spends most of his working hours on his feet in high energy activity.

If Sujit could face the things that could have slowed him down, despite experts advising him to take it easy, what’s holding you back from chasing your entrepreneurial dream?

See Sujit’s insightful story here.
