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.

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.

                                                                  MESSAGE

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

A terrible thing: no one to blame”.

LISTING YOUR WORRIES AND PROBLEMS IS HALF SOLVED.

I am a firm believer in Charles kittering’s proverb – “A problem well stated is a problem half solved.” You feel something special when you take out a piece of paper and list your every single problem and worry. This is like a peaceful feeling you get after telling your best friend about something that has been troubling you for weeks. You feel lighter, calmer and freer.

If you keep thinking about your worries and problems, a time will come when you will think little else. In this situation, it becomes very important that you let go the mental clutter that your problems tend to generate. To get out of this situation, list all your worries on a piece of paper. If you do this, they would no longer be able to control your mind and drain your valuable energy.

This is such a simple exercise that will take your problems into proper perspective and let you tackle them in an orderly, well planned sequence. There are many successful people who have successfully used this technique. Winston Churchill once said – “It helps to write down half a dozen things which are worrying me. two of them, say, disappear; about two, nothing can be done, so it is no use worrying and LAST TWO PERHAPS CAN BE SETTLED.

BE A MAN OF WORD!! Your ability to keep up your word or promise determines your true character and who you are!!

In the word of Vijay Eswaran:

“Saying the right words only sells your intention.

While showing that you mean what you say can buy trust,

However, doing what you say, SEALS IT.”

There was a time when people were a man of word. They would honor their word and promise under all circumstance. Keeping their word was like worshiping a God. But time has changed. We now live in a time when people hardly have any importance for their word and they treat their words very lightly. We tell a friend we will call her next week for lunch knowing full well we do not have the time to do so. We tell our friend that we will certainly attend his marriage ceremony knowing full well that we will never attend it. And we promise ourselves on the new year day that we will adopt to a fitness regime on the new year day next year to get back into shape, change our life style and simplify our lives without any real intention of doing it or making the deep life changes necessary to achieve these goals.

We don’t really mean what we say and thus habit has become our way of life. The real problem is that when you don’t keep your word, you lose your credibility, you break the bond of trust. And breaking the bond of trusts ultimately leads to a string of broken heart and relationship. You will never be taken seriously or trusted by others.

I cannot suggest you any ready made formulae to develop a habit of keeping your word, and promise. But yes, I can definitely suggest you one thing. IF YOU CAN SEE IT IN YOUR MIND, YOU CAN HOLD IT IN YOUR HAND. I religously follow and implement this saying in my life. Every time you do not keep your word or promise, you feed the habit of UNTRUTHFUL AND UNRELIABLE.

When you promise someone you will do something, JUST DO IT. Be a person of your word rather than being “ALL TALK AND NO ACTION.”

DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A BETTER SELF CONTROL AND WILLPOWER?? TRY THIS!!

Silence and smile are two powerful tools.

Smile is the way to solve many problems and

Silence is the way to avoid many problems!!

 

Your silence for one hour a day can bring magical results!!

Yes, silence can build up an enormous willpower-one that has been used by the Buddhist monks and many cultures over the years to build up a rock like willpower and enormous amount of inner strength and determination.you can enhance your will power and self control by observing silence even for a short period because you exert force on your will by not giving in to the impulse to talk.

I see many people talking far more than they need to.we often continue to talk on and on rather than speaking precisely and communicating only what needs to be communicated.It only reflects a lack of discipline in our life.Discipline involves saying exactly what needs to be said and preserving your precious mental energy by not talking more than you have to.Measured,precise speech is also a sign of clear thought and of a serene mind.

A better strategy to improve your personal discipline could be to take a firm decision to be silent for one hour a day over the next seven days.you must not speak at all during this silent time.DON’T WASTE YOUR WORDS ON PEOPLE WHO DESERVE YOUR SILENCE.However,if you must,speak only in a direct response to a question and give a brief,clear and crisp answer without getting into a detailed conversation.you can observe silence politely and warmly.The purpose of this exercise is to make you stronger and  build up your WILL.

Believe me,in a few days,you will feel and experience a tremendous sense of CONTROL and POWER growing within you.The results will speak for themselves.

DOES IT MAKE SENSE TO WORRY ABOUT THINGS YOU CANNOT CHANGE!! Obviously,NO!! BUT IS IT POSSIBLE? READ……

Whenever I face challenge and hardship in my own life that I fail to change,I remind myself The Serenity Prayer of Reinhold Niebuhr: “God,give us the grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed,courage to change the things which should be changed,and the wisdom to distinguish one from other”.

I was once attending a leadership coaching programme and going through an exercise.After finishing this exercise,I found that 50 percent of my worries related to things that would likely never happen; 30 percent were about past actions that could not be changed;10 percent related to the opinions of people whose opinion really did not matter to me; 4 percent concerned personal finances issues that was manageble;only 6 percent concerned real and worrying issues worthy of my attention.

It was amazing that by systematically identifying and then letting go of the worries I could do nothing about or that were a complete waste of energy,I managed to  eliminate 94 percent of problems that were constantly then bothering me all the time.

                                                                MESSAGE

List out all your worries in a systematic way and analyze them one by one carefully by asking yourself the right questions and trust me,you would also be placed in the same scenario like mine.Your stress level would immediately and drastically come down.
