The most important reason to do your own startup

I'll write a detailed post soon about all aspects that I considered while deciding to do my own startup, but for now, I want to talk about the most important reason of them all: Personal Growth.

For the first time in a long time, I have the feeling that I am fulfilling my potential and it is amazing the growth I have seen in myself in these past few months.

Putting yourself outside your comfort zone, sharply brings into focus your values and forces you to think hard about them and make some tough choices. You will be pleasantly surprised to find yourself doing things you never thought you could. And there will be times when you will be upset at yourself for doing things you believed you never should. But in the process, you will learn a lot about yourself.

In the end, with all the uncertainties, if nothing else, I know at least one thing for sure: I will be a better person than I started out and that is worth more than anything else you might think is important.

Are you doing a startup? Why are you doing it? Are you on the fence? What is keeping you from starting up? I'd love to hear from you.

Yeah you learn a hell of a lot doing your own startup. And it is not just the technical education either. There is other stuff like marketing and such.
