DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE RIGHT TIME TO QUIT YOUR JOB AND BE YOUR OWN BOSS!!

I have worked in a very reputed and largest corporate house in India at a senior position for 23 years.As such,I know it very well that most of the people get tired of following others’ whims and fancies.If they have a choice,they would like to quit their job and follow their dreams.

But how do you decide what will be the right time for you to go solo or whether you should take the risk of leaving a cushy job to pursue a pipe dream? No one can become a successful entrepreneur overnight.If you are tempted to quit your job to start something of your own,you must do a little self-assessment  first.If you can relate to the following scenario and signs,you are ready for the move.

1-In my opinion,there is nothing like the right time or age to go solo.The time is right when you have an idea that you believe in,are passionate about it,and willing to bet your life on.So it does not matter how old are you,ask yourself first if you are really feeling an indomitable urge to do something you consider your true calling,and if you have enough fire in your belly to give shape to your fledging dreams.

2-Deciding to quit your job to become an entrepreneur is life-changing for its possibilities as well as its risks.you must keep your family in the loop.To overlook on the security a job provides,that is a fixed money in the bank at the beginning of every month,is a very courageous and bold moves in itself.It is not everybody’s cup of tea.The first rule in entrepreneurship-you have to be able to take risks,even while you provide for uncertainties with a detailed plan.In other words,if you are fully aware of the risks and if your family supports your decision,YOU ARE HALFWAY THROUGH.

3-I am assuming that you have the courage to take risks but do you have the emotional intelligence to run and manage your enterprise well.Are you capable of handling disappointments,stress and negativity to predict are you well equipped for the road ahead.There is a strong relationship between EQ and entrepreneurship as confirmed by several studies.If your EQ is high,you don’t get easily offended and can take rejections in life.

4-You should have enough savings to fall back on in your initial days.you should ask yourself how much of your savings you are willing to invest in your first entrepreneurial venture? Many entrepreneurs have experienced multiple failures before they got it right.so you should be ready to start small and built it up later.

5-As I know, you are not likely to make a living in the initial few years of your start-up.Your savings and investments,thus,must cater for not just the seed fund,but also for your living expenses for atleast a couple of years.you should also do reality-check-can you allocate about 25% of your savings for this.

6-I would like to make it abundantly clear that you may have an excellent business plan and an insatiable passion for business ideas,but things may not necessarily happen the way you want them to happen.you may have to digest heavy losses.So be clear about an exit plan too.Speak to your family about it

Every entrepreneur is so passionately driven that at times,we are unwilling to accept the fact that a venture is not working out or has failed and its time to call it quits.Can you handle such setbacks and failures?Your family members could be most helpful.

BUT IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF FAILURE,TAKE IT THAT YOU ARE NOT READY TO GO SOLO AND BE YOUR OWN BOSS YET.

DO YOU LOVE & ENJOY YOUR WORK??

If you want to live a long,happy life,you must love your work.All successful and satisfied people have one thing in common:an intense passion for their work,and they all loved what they did for a living.If you spend your days doing work that you find rewarding,intellectually challenging and fun will give you far greater comfort and satisfaction than any other activity.Thomas Edison,who recorded more than one thousand patents in his life time,said about his brilliant career at the end of his life,”I never did a day’s work in my life:It was all fun”.

If you love your job,you may find that you may never have to work another day in your life.your work will be play and time will go away as quickly as they came.A famous novelist James Michener has written:

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play,his labor and his leisure,his mind and his body,his  information and his recreation,his life and his religion.He hardly knows which is which.He simply persues his vision of excellence at whatever he does,leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing.

TO him,HE IS ALWAYS  DOING BOTH.

                                                                          MESSAGE

The chances of your success multiplies 100 times when you do a job you really love.

IF WE DON’T ACT ON LIFE,LIFE WILL ACT ON US!! CHOICE IS YOURS!!

REMEMBER,YOU CAN MAKE EXCUSES OR YOU CAN PROGRESS,

BUT YOU CANNOT DO BOTH!!

Take full charge of your life.”If it is going to be,its upto me” is a wonderful saying.Please don’t leave the quality of your life,like many others, to chance rather than choice.This anecdote’s point of wisdom is simply this:we need to keep our eyes and ears open to the realities of life.If we don’t act on life and take timely action to make things happen,it will act on us and give us results we may never like and want.This is nothing but one of nature’s laws that binds humanity for thousand of years.

You must begin to see yourself in-charge of your destiny and life.If you want something done,rather than waiting for luck to look your way,you must make efforts and take steps to achieve your dreams.If you need help from someone you know could help you solve a problem or seize an opportunity,pick-up the phone or do meet him or her.Remember,you can make excuses or you can make progress,but you cannot do both.

I would like to recall a very inspiring incidence.When I was working with a corporate house,I use to make a forty-five minute journey on a commuter train to my office.Everyday,a man would sit infront of me who would do inspiring things.Instead of sleeping or daydreaming like most of the other people on the train,this man decided to use his forty-five minutes to exercise.From the moment he sat down until the moment we arrived at the station,he would do arm stretches,neck rolls and series  of other excercises to improve his health.Rather than joining the legion of people who complain they don’t have enough time to workout,he took matters into his own hands and took charge of the opportunity.you may find  it a little awkward.But how does it matter when you know that what you are doing is the right thing to do.

If you could see such opportunities in your mind,you can hold it in your hand and create a fundamental shift in the way you perceive your world.you become the captain the ship,leading things in direction you chose to move rather than reacting to the whim of the changing tides.

AVOID DEPENDENCY.IT CURBS YOUR DIGNITY AND FREEDOM.BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN LIFE.

IS IT RIGHT TO LIVE IN A WORLD OF LIKE MINDED PEOPLE??

If your reply is ‘YES’,think again and if ‘NO’-stop condemning others!!

We all have vice of complaining.you can easily fall into the habit of condemning others,even those we love most.we have tendency to criticize the way someone eats or the manner in which others speak and walk.we focus on the most minute details and find fault with small issues.This is a reality we cannot deny.But please remember,what we focus on grows.And if we keep focusing on a small weakness in someone,it will continue to grow in our mind until we perceive it to be a big problem in that person.

I have now a question to you! Do you really want to live in a world of like minded people where everyone looked,acted and thought exactly as you do?In my view it could be a very boring place.It would  be right to say that richness of our society comes from its diversity.What can make relationship,community and countries memorable are not the things that we have in common but the differences and diverse cultures that can make this world unique.India is a live example of this.we should begin to respect differences and diversity rather looking for things to criticize in those around you.

We often perceive in others the weakness we most need to address within ourselves.So,please avoid blaming and condemning.Accept full responsibility for the way things are and resolve to work on changing yourself before seeking to change others.This could be a clear sign of a person of strong character.

Remember Erica jong’s saying,”Take your life into your own hands and what happens?

Meditation is the ultimate solution to all your anxiety, stress and anger related problems.

Trust me:I have experienced it.

It reminds me today what French mathematician Blaise Pascal once wrote,”All man’s miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone” Loud noise and hectic activities have become an integral part of our daily life.We wake up to the sound of the radio blaring and love to dress up while the TV news is on.We drive to work listening to our favourite songs and latest traffic report and spend the next ten hours in a bustling office.we return home in the evening through a tiring and stressful traffic jam.Our day’s misery does not end here.we would get into the evening activities against the background sound of the tv,ringing phones and humming computers.You may agree with me that,if not all,most of our stress and anxiety stem from the fact that we have overlooked the importance of being silent,even for a short period every day.As such we lose the ability to concentrate and achieve our goals and dreams.Without a disciplined mind and deep concentration,your mind will be your master rather than your servant.

There was a phase in my life,when I lacked mental focus. Anxiety and lack of  concentration ruled my mind.But my life changed the day I learned to meditate about three decades ago.Meditation is an age-old technique that was developed by some of the world’s wisest people to gain full control of the mental faculty and lead a life free from anxiety and stress.Meditation is a method to train your mind to function the way it was designed to function.It has enormous benefits: A 30 minute’s of daily meditation can make you more patient in your relationship,more serene at the office and more happy when you are alone. Meditation can make you a far better parent and life partner.

You cannot afford to ignore the power of this five-thousand-year-old mind training discipline.

Message: in my view, in today’s world anxiety, stress and anger is our biggest and insurmountable problem, which ultimately leads to all kinds of major and dangerous health issues.

So, are you not ready or am i asking you too much to spare just 30 mins of your daily life for MEDITATION and live a happy life.

After all, what is the point of having name, fame, wealth, money and all good things in your life if you cannot enjoy it because of health issues.

THINK ABOUT IT !!

YOUR FUTURE HAPPINESS LIES IN YOUR PAST MISTAKES!!

Yes, it is absolutely possible. How? Read it….

There are many people who spend their days beating up on themselves for past mistakes. They would think about that relationship that failed, analyze it and relentlessly review all the things they did wrong. They also have tendency to look at that business decisions that cost them, so much and dwell on things they could have done right. In my view, you don’t need to be so hard on yourself. We are all human beings and human beings have been destined to make mistakes. Believe me, as long as you don’t keep making the same mistakes and have a good judgement to let your past serve you, you will always be on the right path.

If we keep realizing that we all make mistakes and that they are essential to our growth and progress is liberating. We give up the need to be perfect and adopt a balanced views about our lives. In order to rise to a higher level of personal wisdom, you can make a list of five biggest mistakes you have made in your life on the left side of a page within your journal. Then, on the right hand side, write down the corresponding life lessons you have learned from every mistake and the benefits that actually flowed into your life as a result of those so-called failures.

You will soon see and start believing that your life would not be as colorful and rich without the mistakes of your past. So be flexible and gentler to yourself and see life for what it really is. A road to personal growth and lifelong learning!!

ALL THE BEST READERS.

WE DO THE MISTAKE OF SEEING THE WORLD, NOT AS IT IS BUT AS WE ARE!!

We never come to know about our inner power and resilience until we face adversity that affects our mind with stress and our heart with pain.Then we realize that we all have within us the courage and the capacity to handle even the greatest challenge life may throw our way.

Many people who come to me for counselling reveal the challenge they face in their lives.Some speak of their problems in their married life.Others speak of their problems in professional life.And one thing that many of the men and women ask me how to control stress and anxiety and restore peace and balance in their personal lives.I always have only one thing to tell these people: To improve and make your life better,you must first improve your thinking,because as the old saying goes,”We see the world,not as it is but as we are”.

God has gifted human being an inborn natural quality and ability to reframe and reinterpret a difficult circumstance in a proper perspective and in a more enlightened way.God has not given this gift to animals and it only belongs to us and is a part of what make us human. Blaming our circumstances for the way we feel is simply excusing ourselves.We must take the full responsibility for whatever situation we are in and then realize that god has also gifted us the capacity to use our challenges and setback to our advantage.Life’s greatest setbacks will ultimately and always place on your hand life’s biggest blessings.

MORAL:  ENRICH AND IMPROVE YOUR THINKING.
