Though the title of the post should have been Experienced vs Fresher as is mostly seen by the people but i am sure i am gonna do the justice by calling fresher as the entrepreneur and sufficiently prove how is it exactly opposite and so befitting the inexperienced person.
So most of us have faced a situation in our life when we were juvenile and had lots of energy to do so much in our life. Me, you, our dad, their dad and all the upcoming generation has or will be going through this phase.That is a very particular age somewhere around when you between 18- 26 years and build upon so many ideas and execution plan at that time. I remember my days when i was sitting at Tilak ka dhaba at the second gate of our college along with some close friends where we came up with some idea over few cups of Tea. I still remember there was nothing wrong with the idea except one thing which was said to be impossible based upon someone’s dad’s previous bad experience in executing it . So what happened next, we immediately shut the door!
Second is the case, where my father was advising me upon what career direction i should head to. and that’s quite normal in India. Infact more than being a common household spoon feeding. Thy want to see the kid going in a direction demanded by their values, demanded by the society around them, demanded by the reputation it would bring, and demanded by god knows what they call it “The experience”. I must say if it is for things other than experience, you can actually come to a negotiation with them at a mid way point, after all they have would have some impact on them depending on what you choose since we still live in India society which is closely knit. What i would protest is the enforcing up of their Experience on us. Time has changed, Environment has changed, parameters of success have changed, A lot has changed! Sorry Dad! you are and will be my hero ! forever for sure , but You need to trust you own kid , trust in his potential, trust in his Idea, Trust in his capabilities, afterall don’t you want to be seen yourself as standing proud. Trust and belief is all I would like to seek from you, If it is about life I would like to have my own experience my own decisions, so that like you, I also come to know that a life hard won is “The Life”.
On the other side, when not talking about the word “experience” we have a young person full of thoughts, imagination, ready to shake the world, immense enthusiasm,Full of desires but with only one thing lagging … A little dare to take the little step to make it big. All our energy comes to a big full stop at that silly point. And that point is again marked by the experience of so many people who failed to go past the Race line overcoming the fear within themselves. Few of the reason could be that they were low on self confidence, or insufficient knowledge, or whatever may it be, they finally decided to chose the easier way and named the phenomenon as the Experience which said that things usually don’t happen so easily as you think so. We agree, Things usually do not happen the way we think it should be and that’s where we need to be creative, we need to be problem solver, a troubleshooter to make things work, to realize the alternative options we once thought of , to implement our ideas, to finally see our dream come true.
Though it takes a moment to sit after getting failed and calling it an experience for the remaining life when you can actually stand up again and find an alternative way to move forward and develop toward your ambition past the fear of failure, because in that case again you know there would be another hidden way out. That is what i would like to call a life which goes on and you ride on it being an Entrepreneur of your dreams .
A fresher is a guy who doesn’t know what doesn’t work. He has plans which he hasn’t tried implementing. if he goes with it and fails in it he would probably seem to have gain an experience . Now it depends upon him if he wants to sit back and calling it an experience that nothing can actually work, or the other way where he rises again and appropriately put effort to find if there is a shining light at any of the corner of the deep cave.He might be called foolish to even go try and waste so much of energy but again these word would come from those who dont want to achieve any big from their life or are satisfied with what they have.
All i would say is that you’ve got to Experience the Entrepreneur in you ! it can make you what you always though of your life !
