Very few level headed individuals dare to take the plunge with the startup turning to fast growing organization. A stable job at a grownup organization, perks and work-life balance top every job seekers wish list when they’re at the start line of their professional careers.
Working in start up or growing organization is relentless for all. It insists on working at bottom from where so ever one has come from. That itself becomes greatest test taker of life. It has its own cardio graph running for setting processes, teams, developments, deliverables etc. All are necessity, in that single minute. Its not the Ups & Down…rather its Down & More Down. But, just because you hit bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there. That’s when you ‘Get Back Up’
Giving up is an option to all but staying back too is. It could just be a second, minute or day that will depict one’s conviction to stay back. Trust me, I have faced it. Very few are fortunate to build themselves in such opportunity. You discover new ‘Self’ in winding situations. In the pressure to discover new avenues, there evolves a dynamic energy that drives progress.
There’s a proverb ‘Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled by” and that has made all the difference. A person with passion, perseverance, strong emotional intelligence will stay ahead the curve.
Now, I start relating this to our journey at Payswiff. This is second startup I’m part of & the best part of it is greed & need of company growth. In the process of performing in all best possible ways, you discover yourself more. Along with giving wings to company, you start flying yourself witnessing the succession. We all are blessed at this time, since we have scope of drastically growing ahead. Stating this, I mean, possibility of bigger multiplier in our own departments. Compared to a giant company which is more stagnant on achievements, I know its monotonous too. Journey is 0 to 100 in a startup, while, 90 to 100 in a grown company. Who has more to learn?
Each employee in startup is at the forefront of the business, every attempt of his/her makes a difference to the company. This easily comes with Self Ownership at whichever position one is today at. In fact doing smaller things will have bigger impact & we really have lot more to do!!!!
We all pray to attain success like Alibaba or Apple, but we don’t pray for journey like theirs. Success is the end result of their difficult journey. And let me state ‘Success’ & ‘Difficulties’ are directly related. One needs to believe in oneself, work sincerely, go beyond one’s limit and adopt the Get Back Up attitude. So, let’s rejoice this exciting journey.
