Entrepreneurs Don’t See The Risk?

“I think you are so risk-loving not because you face it, rather you dont see the risk in the first place”

I would agree. I dont see the risk infront of the other options. Infact I cant.

There is no Plan B. I can speak of one, but I cant think of it. I have to go out and pacify the devil inside that I can do it. I have seen my dad go down, I have seen our family go through our own recession, I have gone to ISB when I didnt have more than a lac in my account, I left Kearney and took a 50% salarycut, and am jobless right now. But I know nothing better.

I know no risk!

I had to remind myself that I did not write this.

Will Smith put it like this – “Your plan A interferes with your plan B.”

There is another aspect of this “risk tolerance” that I feel we do not acknowledge enough. I firmly believe that the self-confidence we got from our education has a lot to do with our appetite for risk. That stubborn feeling in our gut that goes “Dont worry. You are going to be fine, not matter how many rupees / dollars/ euros you have in your bank account.”

That should have been “Your plan B interferes with your plan A” :D
