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.

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.

CONFLICTS TEACHES YOU POWERFUL LESSONS AND MAKE YOU A BETTER HUMAN BEING!!

We all run away from conflicts. It really makes us feel bad, so we avoid it. We all hope it will somehow resolve itself. But it never does! Instead it just festers like a bad wound- what we resist really does persist.

I have a different point of view on conflict. Conflict is an opportunity for greater growth and deeper personal connection. Every conflict carries within it a powerful lessons to make you a better human being in your understanding and perspective. I have seen that every conflict whether with a loved one or anybody else, is a gorgeous opportunity to forge an even  closer bond with them. It turns their dissatisfaction into a wow for both of you.

So don’t run away from conflict. Avoid sending email when you know you need to speak  some truth face to face. Its all about balancing compassion with courage. And let me tell you it can feel so messy,in truth its a gift. Accept and embrace it. Relish the potential it carries. Celebrate it!!

IT CAN SERVE YOU SO WELL!!

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?

YOU ARE BORN FOR A REASON-BIG OR SMALL!!

We start to live our lives from the day we start to take our very first  breath that god has given to us.Our purpose starts to take shape.With that first breath,we also step in the world which has endless failure for people who give up and astounding success for individuals who never give up trying.Money,fame ,success…all this has no meaning if the person has not worked harder and harder each day in order to achieve it.

We often hear…”HARDWORK IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS”;for achieving anything, hardwork is must.Work is a great rescue for all difficulties.Constant vigilance and dedication towards work is the price that we pay to gain success in life.Without hardwork, one cannot achieve,but can only dream and desire of achieving it.People go through certain phases in life….good and tough times.We are all humans,we all have that capability to make life as it existed in our dreams.When our time to experience that ‘dream’finally arrives,we forget almost everything and we ultimately get lost in that success,that success which we have been desperately wanting since forever.But somehow,when we actually start to live that dream,we forget about how to make it last forever.In that particular time we only think of our present and not future and hence we face hardship in our future.

The longest journey that we as human being will ever go through is the journey of life.Life has its ups and downs and at the most unexpected time,can go into a horrifying downfall,which has rough and bumpy corners.We eventually ask ourselves,”do we have any control on what our future holds or which turn we will take?

It is  true that life cannot be perfect all the time.Once in a life time,every person faces ups and downs in their lives.It is also  true that an individual with his strength to hold on and with the power of determination can conquer any battle,even if it is the “BATTLE OF LIFE”.Man is born to to work,prosper and grow in life.Just like steel,he shines in use and rusts in rest.

How does it matter if a man lives for ninety years and it is all a story of idleness and wasted opportunities? Lord Jesus Christ died when he was hardly thirty,Lenin died before he was sixty,and yet they have impressions on human history.Idleness  is truly a curse.If we waste time,time shall waste us.A life crammed with work is a life bubbling with a joy of success.Great men of the world were born as unfortunates in cottages but they died in idols,in palaces.

To sum up,greatness and success lie in hard,honest and selfless work.life can be hard to understand and I don’t think even the person most in touch with themselves knows why they were put on  this earth.I believe that we were put on this earth for a reason,big or small.Do we have a plan of our life set out for us already,that we have to follow,no matter how much we try to change it!!

YOUR SUFFERINGS ARE YOUR BLESSINGS!

I was once during my corporate days attending the life leadership seminar of a very famous motivational speaker where he asked the participants this question:”who would agree with me that we learn the most from our most difficult experiences”? I saw nearly every hand in the room going up,including mine.It occurs to me nearly after a decade now that,if it is so,I fail to understand why we,as human being,spend so much of our lives focusing on the negative aspects of our most difficult experiences rather than seeing these sufferings as blessings in disguise!!

Believe me readers,you would not have the wisdom and knowledge you now possess were it not for the setbacks and hardships you have faced,the mistakes you have made and the sufferings you have endured along the path of your life.You must accept the fact once and for all that pain is a teacher and failure is the gateway to success.You cannot learn swimming without water entering through your nose and mouth and you will never learn horse riding without falling and atleast  one bone fracture.

Begin to see your troubles as blessings in disguise and be determined to turn your pain into wisdom.Like most people,I too have had my own share of pain and tremendous hardships in my various phases of life.But I always remind and self motivate myself that we can become strong only by going through life’s toughest challenges and experiences.It is during life’s most trying times that we discover who we really are and the boundless energy and strength that lies within us.

If you are currently experiencing unsurmountable challenges of your own,I would like you to remind you the famous words of Rainer Maria Rilke,which has always inspired me a lot during my toughest time.

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.Try to love the questions,like locked room and like books written in a foreign language.Do not now look for the answers.They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is  a question of experiencing everything.At present you need to live the question.Perhaps you will gradually,without even noticing it,find yourself experiencing the answer,some distant day”.

So, my dear Readers,have patience with all your  pain and suffering and your life will give you all the answers to your discomforts and make your life better at an appropriate time.

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE IN THIS SITUATION ?

WHILE ARROGANCE IS A SIGN OF YOUR WEAKNESS,

HUMILITY IS THE HIGHEST IMAGINABLE SIGN OF YOUR STRENGTH.

Taking one step back rather one step forward is not the sign of of your

weakness but it could be your victory and symbol of your MATURITY

and HUMILITY.

A truly humble man cannot be an arrogant person.One must reflect modesty like a tree that bends low with the burden of ripening fruits.

It is the barren tree that lifts itself high in an empty boast.Humility contrary to patriarchal designation of it as a sign of weakness,is in fact,the highest imaginable sign of strength.

One has to be spiritually and mentally balanced in an egoless state.This allows us to see order in chaos and chaos in order.In fact it is the balance WITHIN that permits us to see the balance in all things.Hence,chaos WITHOUT is a matter of perception,while chaos WITHIN is the conception of the ego.Be like the ocean which receives all streams and rivers.The ocean mighty calm remains unmoved;IT FEELS THEM NOT.

TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND BETTER ABOUT HUMILITY,I WILL TELL YOU A TRUE STORY OF TWO KINGS.

Once upon a time a king was passing through a dense forest in his royel Carrier alongwith a team of his trusted soldiers.His Carrier was passing through a very narrow passage.A second king of the neighbouring state also happened to be passing through the same forest and it was sheer coincidence that both the kings suddenly happen to meet head-on in that narrow passage.The horse carrier of both the kings had to stop because the passage at that point was so narrow that only one carriage could pass through.

The first king conveyed a message to the second king to take back his horse carrier by a few yards,so that he could pass through that narrow passage.The second king conveyed back the message to the first king that ‘I DON’T GIVE WAY TO FOOLS’ and he will not take back his horse carriage even by an inch.

The first king thought for a second and send across the message to the second king that read-‘I GIVE WAY TO FOOLS’ and he promptly instructed his men to take back the carrier by a few yards and gave way to the  second kind.

MORAL:TAKING ONE STEP BACK BY THE FIRST KING WAS IN NO WAY HIS WEAKNESS,BUT A SIGN OF MATURITY,HUMILITY AND VICTOR

 

                                                          MY MESSAGE

BE LIKE THAT TREE THAT BENDS LOW WITH THE BURDEN OF RIPENING FRUITS.GIVE UP YOUR ARROGANCE,BEND LOW AND DEMONSTRATE YOUR HUMILITY,WHEN THE NEED BE.
