5 Side Effects of Entrepreneurship

1. Frustration

Your high hopes, low outcome and failures in doing the things you are wishing for, leaves you with a lot of frustration. It will hit you like a sunshine. Everyday there will be something or the other that you will be frustrated about. Mostly because of the things not happening as you’ve planned. There is nothing you can do to avoid it, but you can sure as hell learn to handle it.

2. You end up judging yourself.

No matter how hard you try, failure is bound to greet you in this arduous way of becoming a successful entrepreneurship. But after many failed attempts to achieve something, you end up judging yourself and think that you aren’t worth anything. You anoint yourself with a tag ‘worthless’ and start to believe that you are good for nothing and you must give up.

3. No personal life

Many relations have been ruined in the quest of becoming a successful entrepreneur. They get involved so much into the work that you leave everything behind. You don’t come home for days, you don’t pick calls, you don’t socialize and many more. Thus, people who care about you and love you start to feel offended and start avoiding you because of your busy schedule. This results into having no personal or family life as everyone is not really that happy with you.

4. Insecurity

Insecurity become a daily part of you, like breathing. Every decision you take, you start second guessing it. You ask people ask for help but you never really find anyone to help you out. Those who are willing to help usually need something in return or just pretend to help. The fear of your actions being right or wrong for the company bothers you at all times.

5. Sleep disorders and health problems.

Due to heavy work load and less time, you slip into depression. Your quest becomes your obsession but the work to be done in a minimum time is beyond the reach of any human. You can’t sleep at night because you are worried about the thing you have to do and the things you cannot and couldn’t do. This leads to bad health and many other medical problems too.

It is a forest out there folks. Have a good one!
