7 Questions with Syed Ali Arbaz Jafri

Name: Syed Ali Arbaz Jafri


Current title: Vice President


Current organisation: Salsoft


What does it mean to be an entrepreneur?
In a world of inaction, over-promising and under-delivering
Every second man seems to claim himself and entrepreneur.

An entrepreneur is someone that would never call himself an entrepreneur.
An entrepreneur is someone that is happy to work, while all others are out partying.

The entrepreneurs drug is success
He is addicted to success.
And finally the entrepreneur knows one simple fact:
“I will make it, maybe not immediately but absolutely and definitely”

You have to hustle…
You have to think outside the box…
To make things happen when it seems impossibly difficult for anything to happen.
To continue to get up off the canvas when you are beaten down relentlessly.

WIN or LEARN. I never lose!
I will succeed, not immediately but absolutely and definitely.
I will take action when others hesitate
I will think big when others don’t
I will sacrifice when others won’t
I will dare to dream of greatness when others fear it.
I will outwork my competition DAY and NIGHT.
I am the captain of my fate, the master of my soul
The boss of my dreams, the king of my goals
To be hungry always, and never satisfied
Proud but never satisfied.
