THERE IS A LOT TO DO, BUT ALL I CAN PROMISE IS THAT THE JOURNEY WOULD BE GREAT FUN. HAVING A VISION OF BUILDING THE BEST-IN-CLASS INFRASTRUCTURE HELPED US SAIL SMOOTHLY WHEN MOST START-UPS STRUGGLE TO SCALE-UP
Being a successful entrepreneur is a dream harboured by millions. Many people dream about the lives of entrepreneurs, thinking of them living a glamorous life-like movie stars. However, in reality, running a business is not a piece of cake, but a tough row to hoe. Entrepreneurship requires a lot of sacrifices that usually results in feeling like giving up every now and then. In this blog, we will share what co-founder of Jabong – Praveen Sinha has to say about what inspires entrepreneurs the most to keep them moving uninterrupted.
One can seek inspiration from almost anything and everything around and there is no one right way to get inspiration. Several people find inspiration in reading about the stories of the struggles of other people who have found success in different spheres of life. While speaking on what inspires Praveen Sinha the most, he says, “I always find something to learn from people around me. There are inspirational writers who are no more there, but there are lots of things to learn from them.”
Spirituality has proved to be strengthening several virtues of the entrepreneurs, such as to remain innovative and committed to scale-up their business. For an Indian entrepreneur, they can draw inspiration from a significant number of personalities from across the nation that have spiritually enlightened millions of people. “I am also driven by spiritual leaders such as Swamy Vivekanand and there are lots of great teachings which we can learn from him or which we can follow to create harmony and good intent towards the society,” quips the maverick entrepreneur. Adi Shankaracharya has also written many verses of great significance however, it’s generally not easy to get the English version of his scriptures.

Drawing inspiration from other business groups
“Tata Group is a great inspiration. The way they built viable businesses along with creating a community and social connection with their organisation is amazing. This is an example where the foundation of the organisation was kept in one generation and the business was started in the next generation. There are other entrepreneurs also who created the magnificent business from scratch in a period of just 15-20 years are a true inspiration,” he added. However, Sinha also believes that there are several firms who have not emerged as giants in terms of turnover but created much more value for their clients and society; these firms also inspire Praveen Sinha a lot.
Making a difference in the society by establishing enterprises inspires Praveen Sinha the most. He says, “I have always believed that one should create things and make a difference in the society.” He says that establishing businesses from scratch to great success is what keeps him motivated. Moreover, he also believes that there’s no other greater inspiration than your own vision and the dream which you have to achieve and that is the only thing which will keep you motivated till you achieve success.
