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.

                                                                MESSAGE

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

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.

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.
