Here Is How Buddhist Wisdom Can Boost Your Entrepreneurial Spirit

Being an entrepreneur challenges your mental toughness. Entrepreneurs, who give enough attention to their physical and mental well-being, are more likely to thrive in the business world in the long run.  The growing awareness of the psychological price that entrepreneurs pay for running a startup helps more entrepreneurs to face the issue.

Looking for ways to re-charge, to avoid burnout and to live more meaningful lives is part of the agenda of many entrepreneurs. A great source of inspiration is Buddhism and there are ways we can translate Buddhist wisdom into the busy lives of business owners.

Trust your imagination and follow your ideas, even the boldest ones: “What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”

Ideas don’t work unless you do: “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.”

When you have a problem, look for a solution first from within: “To conquer oneself is a greater task than conquering others.”

Sometimes it is better to pivot or simply to let go. Not all ideas are worth pursuing and not all endeavors are successful: “Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well.”

Choose the right co-founders, the right team members, the right partners, and the right investors: “If you find no one to support you on the spiritual path, walk alone. There is no companionship with the immature.”

Focus and discipline will take you a long way: “There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.”

Tame your ego: “Wear your ego like a loose fitting garment.”

Don’t let doubt hold you back: “There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills. ”

A way to deal with problems and setbacks: “If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.”

No words beat action: “A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.”

It doesn’t matter how hard was tomorrow; today you start with a clean slate: “Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”

Always let go of the negative: “Remembering a wrong is like carrying a burden on the mind.”

Neither failure, nor success: “Nothing is permanent.”

Why to be you against the world when it can be you and everyone else fighting for a better future: “Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.”

There isn’t such a thing as an over-night success. It takes time, persistence and patience: “A jug fills drop by drop.”
