How to Thrive As an Entrepreneur

It is not easy but a little planning can get your mind-body aligned to the pressures.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

Becoming an entrepreneur seven years back has been a redefining experience for me. It puts tremendous pressure on you with high mental stress and body fatigue without let up.

Being an entrepreneur also forces you to perform at very high levels over an extended period of time.

This has guided me to listen to my mind and body which has changed many perspectives and habits, leading to overall wellness.

Physical fitness is no longer an option for me but something to be accomplished each day. So I get up in each morning and choose between not one but many options from cycling, gym and yoga.

Healthy eating is another step in this direction. The right diet is no longer an aspiration but to be lived each day. I have given up junk food, sugar and gluten to achieve this.

When I feel burnt out, I focus on my family and relationships, even my other family of HealthAssure, the company I founded. 

However, there are still areas which remain unmanaged such as my relationship with my phone, it’s a journey which continues.

My advice is for all to begin the good journey for all the right reasons leading to ‘thriving in life’.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
