Alekh Kumar Parida believes in taking risks to achieve success
At some point, we all have to take risks to get what we want. But some risks are tougher than one imagines them to be. In today's competitive world, everyone wants to be the best, everyone wants to be at the top. For the same, many start working on their dreams at a very young age. Based in Odisha, Alekh Kumar Parida also made sure he stays determined to achieve big things as he had plans to become an entrepreneur at a young age.
Starting a new business isn't a cakewalk. There are already successful ones and there are many new good entrepreneurs too. But one has to take the risk to step into this competitive and challenging world as then only, a person can understand how to function. While the dreamers are still sleeping and waiting for the best moment to take action, the taker has caught the rewards.
Risk-takers are more likely to be successful because they do not limit themselves and are willing to put in their energy when every other person is hesitant. Alekh Kumar says, "If you don't start somewhere, you won't know how to grow, gain success, deal with failure and be better than others."
His mantra in life is to never give up, stay positive and trust yourself. Alekh Kumar said that one cannot sit and wait for things to happen by themselves.
"As a beginner in the world of entrepreneurship, one has to work 10 times harder than those who are already established. Patience is the key and if you are honest with your work and yourself, you will get closer to your dreams and goals," says Alekh.
Taking a risk to achieve a goal requires courage to face the fear of uncertainty. No matter the outcome, either way, we grow through the process and become more resilient and confident. Better yet, building those skills helps in taking more risks and improves the chances of achieving future goals.
Risk takers know that success wont fall in your lap. You have to chase and hunt for it. That is what they do when they take risks. They are shooting for the sky amidst the storm. Through that chase, they find seemingly rare opportunities that may never have been found if they had waited.
During this lockdown period, Alekh Kumar hasn't lost hope. He knows this time will pass and life will be normal again. He thinks once everything is back to normal, everyone will be different. The demands and expectations of people might also differ. So there's a huge opportunity for all those who want to start something new and big in the business world.
