‘Respect, pride…’ Ritesh Agarwal shares advice for budding entrepreneurs

Founder and CEO of Oyo, Ritesh Agarwal in a video message has shared some advise for aspiring entrepreneurs who are scared of rejection.

Softbank-backed OYO‘s CEO said that aspiring entrepreneurs should take pride in whatever they aim to build and not worry of being rejected. He added that all entrepreneurs at one point do get rejected in their entrepreneurial journey. 

In the video message posted on his official Twitter handle, Agarwal says entrepreneurs who want to build their startup should not be ashamed of their work and feel proud about what they do. 

“No matter what the work is, every profession is respectable and an entrepreneur should be proud about it,” he said.

“If you do these two things, as I have learnt this in my early days that you must respect and take pride in your work and not be ashamed if you face rejection,” he said.

Agarwal wrote, “For aspiring entrepreneurs out there who are scared of rejection – take pride in whatever you build. Don’t fret about being rejected. All entrepreneurs get rejected at a point in their journey. The ones who take it in their stride succeed in the long run.” 

This is not the first time the CEO has shared a meaningful lesson. Earlier with the graduating students of the Indian Institute of Management in Nagpur, Agarwal said that “the more successful you become in life, the more rooted you should be” 

“Jo ped sabse bade hote hain, woh sabse zyada jhuke huye hote hain.’ (The more successful you become in life, the more rooted you should be.) I recently got the opportunity to share some of my stories, experiences and lessons with the amazing students of @IIMNagpurIndia. This particular lesson that my family taught me early on in life, continues to remain so close to my heart,” Agarwal wrote in the caption of the post.

Further adding, he had said, “So as you become more successful in life, you should remember that you should be rooted to where you are at today or where you were at two years back when you came here because while you should not forget that you are pursuing excellence and you want to build the biggest businesses in the world, but being rooted to saying that I come from Raigad and I wanted to make this positive difference is valuable in every bit of life.”
