Everything Happens For a Reason…

One of the best thoughts about life…

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.  You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, teacher, fraternal brother or sister, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), but when you lock eyes with them, you know that at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.
Everything happens for a reason.  Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without the small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight flat road to nowhere.  It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become.  Even the bad experiences can be learned from.  In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to when you open your heart.  If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things. Make every day count.
Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen.  Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to.
Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.  You can make your life anything you wish.  Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.  Most importantly, if you love someone tell them, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.
And finally, enjoy looking forward to learning a new lesson each day and enjoying the journey.

Why Entrepreneurs Fail..?

Standard
From: My Own

2014 – 15 a new business year for all entrepreneurs, so before planning for the next year let’s have a small review about why most of the budding and growing entrepreneurs fail in their business. This article is just to reshape our views and vision about the business that we run today and the businesses that we are going to  start in future.

We can see, most of the billionaires were started their business from a scratch and now they are enjoying the value of their brand and they are growing and growing, at the same time there are entrepreneurs who are burning out because of loss and frustration in the business.

So why entrepreneurs fail even though they invest their time and effort in their business..? 

1. Survival Driven- (Trying to make money before creating value):- This is one of the most difference between successful and failed entrepreneurs. Successful entrepreneurs always give importance on creating value than making immediate profit.

Wealth is a result of consistently providing solutions to the problems of humanity. If you doubt me, go ask Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg and the likes. These are people who simply followed their passion (purpose driven) rather than following money (survival driven) and yet made a great fortune. (from Mr. Philip)

2. Lack of Business IQ (No proper planning and preparation):- The quest for making a business sometimes results in learning zero knowledge about the industry and the business. To grow a business the businessmen should learn day by day about the changing trends in the industry, people and the style.

I would tell an example: In a motivational training class, a man asked to the speaker “My industry is filled with bargaining customers and I could make only very minimum profit. So how can I make a better business..? The speaker told him you made a better profit in the beginning of your business but you were blind in analyzing the changes in the industry, you could have started a diversification when you felt the changes in the industry.” (Thanks to one of my clients).

This is sometimes happening, getting knowledge will help you to take right decision at right time. 

3. Lack of focus (Wandering here and there): – This is the another difference, successful business people would have a focus and they invest their time and effort to nurture that special area. Take an example of Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg  etc all those people have the focus.

“genius is the ability to focus on one particular thing for a long time without losing concentration.”

So when you start or run a business, try to focus on the area where you can excel and never go for a randomized business before you got a clear path.

4. Risk Averse (Fear of Failure) : – This is one of the most challenging thing. Successful business people are ready to take challenges, they see opportunities in every risk and challenges, and that is why they are remembered and successful. But failed entrepreneurs lack this quality

If you are passionate in doing business, you never mind you challenges, risk or anything, you will do it. So have a passion about your business. You can be free from risk averse by improving your business knowledge, passion and focus also by concentrating on the end result. 

5. Poor Money Management (Extravagance) : – Manage your money, never let the money to manage you. Successful entrepreneurs are good in money management, they know where to invest and when to harvest their investment, like Warren Buffet’s words “Never invest in a business you can’t understand.” 

Always remember that there are ups and downs, you should be prepared to meet the unexpected.

6I can do well all by myself (Insecurity) : There is a limit to what an individual can achieve alone, thus the need for team work. Successful people know what to hold and what to delegate, so entrepreneurs should encourage team work and you should act as a leader and a guide.

“Together Towards Success…” follow the line literally, you will enjoy the happiness and success.

So, you must get rid of any insecurity and every scarcity mentality you might have that someone is going to beat you to it. There are many things that are unknown to you, so you should seek help from your team, may be from outside consultants etc, this is how business grows. 

7. Lack of Vision (The shortsightedness) : – “Vision is the reason for your existence”, never start or run a business without vision or with shortsightedness, the business will sink somewhere. The businessmen should be clear about his path and the end result, then only the business can move forward.

So, it is the high time that you need to have a vision for your business and life and let the vision shows the value that you are going to provide.

“Let the business speaks about you rather than you speak about the business…”

 

THE SIXTH SENSE

Standard
From: My Own

The title seems very supernatural but the meaning is very simple and almost all the people might experienced this thing in their life, I believe so.

It is true that the unexpected is always expected, I really believe that people got a sixth sense and it will work when something is going to happen that you don’t want in your life. In most of the situations we really think too much and that is one of the key reasons for the unexpected, always believe in your first thought, because that is the one that you really want and your mind knows it.

So, what is sixth sense..?

It is an instinct thought or spark that we feel when we are stuck in a situation and we usually skip it.

In my life, i skipped many of my first thoughts and opportunities for the better one but finally what happened was, most of the results were unpleasant and unexpected, really its a fact. The 6th sense is real and in my life I experienced it many times, whenever I skipped it, I faced unexpected things.

So, how can we identify our Sixth Sense thought..?

It is quite simple, just think, when you really wanted to do something that was really like “there’s many a slip twixt cup and lip”, there might be a first thought that came into your mind but you might skipped it by forcing your brain to think again, then the first thought that came to your mind is called the Sixth Sense. Yes, the thought that comes directly into your mind is the sixth sense thought, all other thoughts from your brain.

I am sure that most of the times you regretted because of not taking your first thought and decision. So when you are really in a confusion, let your mind work on it and let the sixth sense act, it will give you a better result.

Here are some situations where you felt sixth sense working:-

It is applicable in all your life incidents whether you are in a confusion to catch a bus or a train, start a business or not to start, even it will make you feel whether your love is successful or not, or when you go for a higher studies and you are stuck in the middle of courses, just think about your life and the above situations, you might feel it. You will feel regret when you neglect your sixth sense.

Why sixth sense is working..?

Sixth Sense means the real things that we need in our life and that are going to happen in our life. More than our brain, our mind knows what we really need in our life, this is what is the reason behind the sixth sense.

Daydreaming!!!

Standard
From: My Life

Daydreaming, yes it is very common among teenagers and youngsters. Obviously when people are getting older the frequency of daydreaming becomes lesser. That’s why they don’t like to see their children daydreaming (just a joke).

Some older people say, daydreaming is more in lazy youngsters and teenagers, whatever they say,  we still like daydreaming and we like wandering in our thoughts all the time.

So what is daydreaming really..?

In night dreams, our mind controls the thought, the visuals and everything that appears in our dream, but in a daydream, our brain controls our thoughts, scenes and each frames. So which means when we daydream, we really think about the future that we want, the life that we really wish to have, the presence of people whom we really love etc.

This is why I really like day dreaming, when I daydream, I really see the life that I really want, I see the people whom I really love, I see the place where I really want to go etc. So personally, daydreaming really gives you a vision for your future and an inspiration for your life.

What is the benefit of daydreaming..?

It is also true that when we use our brains to daydream and for wandering in our thoughts, it really helps you in someway:-

  • Helps to increase your creativity:– When we dream more we      break the limits of our mind and we become more creative; like we can fly, we can play guitar, we can have a dinner with Rihanna, yes I do. Yes, we don’t have any limits in our daydreams.
  • Helps to reduce your tension:- It is also true, we can keep our mind calm when we daydream because we only want to see the things that makes us more comfortable and happy. Also it proves that we forget what we were doing, that also makes us comfortable.
  • It gives you better working memory:- Daydreaming people have the better working memory because they are more creative, there are many examples which shows that people who dreams more come up with better creative ideas, I do have personal experience in this.
  • It makes you feel the presence of your loved ones:- Daydream always makes you see the people whom you really have good relationship. That’s why teenagers and youngsters are more into daydreaming. I think you also agree, right..?

So just daydream and wander in your thoughts where the possibilities are immense and just explore the real life that you really want. Also remember one thing:-

“There is no tax for daydreaming, just dream…”

How Great Memories Create Meaningful Life…?

Standard

From: My Own Life

Recently I met with a situation which I never expected in my life and that made me to think “what is the reason for remembering someone in our life and why we remember only very few people..?”. May be its a wild question but just think about the people you met in your life, I know you could easily remember some people at the time of reading this, also when you pull your memories back you might see some more faces but I am sure there are hundred and hundreds of faces that are hidden,  but why..?

why couldn’t we recollect the faces of others..? Just think about the people around you; if your friends, colleagues, neighbors, classmates etc ask this to themselves, and how many of them would remember your face at the time of asking this question. This is where memories play a big role in everybody’s life. This shows that without creating great memories nobody will remember you in their life so always keep one thing in your mind which is to create memories in others life.

So, how great memories create meaningful life..?

I would say that nobody will remember you until and unless you create a high impact in their life which means you need to create great memories in other’s life, then only you will be remembered. As i said earlier, the value or the depth of the memories that you created will determine the way you remembered in other life.

At the end of the day life will be meaningful when you feel that you have done something that can make you remembered even after your life in this world.

In our life, in the relationships that we had and having, the memories are the things that make you feel their presence and their absence, without memories there is no love, no friendship and no life

So how can we create great memories..? Here are some tips:

  • Give an experience that others never tasted
  • Smile at people, which is the most simplest way
  • Mind people when you are working in a society
  • Provide value while talking
  • Join when there is teamwork
  • Call people rather than messaging or mailing
  • Take initiative to meet people to whom you had issues
  • Determine to create great memories, if you do you will stick with that and can create memories
  • there are lot more and that are depends upon you..

If you created great memories in others life you will be remembered in their heart even when you are away and they will cherish the great memories that you created in their life. Enrich your life with great memories…
