Can someone else make or break your business?

Bad businessI have realized one thing in the past few decades of doing online and offline business. It all boils down to the minor changes you make that will affect the rest of your career. So in a way you can definitely take big part in changing and shaping your career, depending on the choices you are making as you more forward.

I don’t actually believe that others can ruin anything for you, unless you let them. And by saying that I back it up with my own style of doing business where I deal with others on a transparent level. I advice them with tips and also make them realize that they have nothing to fear from me. My belief in my creator makes me confident that what is destined to reach me will never miss me and what is destined to miss me can never be mine no matter how much I try. So it’s comforting for me to give my best and just let the results come depending on the work I put in.

So keeping these things in mind, I strongly suggest that you take a leap of faith and start focusing on your strengths, by learning new things, reading books, finding mentors and doing something positive with your time. Money comes and goes, but my friend, time just goes, it never comes back. There is a time for everything, so use it to do the most important things to make your business grow, rather than focusing on someone else’s business that’s booming. There business is booming because they are putting time into it. If they are working 10 hours, you work 12, if they work 12 hours you need to put in 14.

If you focus on your own business, not only will it thrive, but you will realize that it’s the most important thing you need to do, to make it big.

Expect to fail – some of the time

If you tell me that you have never failed at something, I would probably turn around and call you the biggest liar on the face of the earth. But then again, maybe you haven’t failed at something at all. But then again that’s even worse, because that means you haven’t done anything different to get what you have today.

  • A person who hasn’t failed has definitely never tried anything new
  • A person who has tried something might have failed but is sitting with great experience
  • A person with great experience in something will definitely not fail again in the same situation

Think about it.. are you one of those who just doesn’t like taking risks? I realize that taking risks just out of the blue is silly, but maybe you should just go against the stream and really do something amazing. You might not like to share your failure, but who knows.. you might come out successful and something that might change the world for the better..

If you are not prepared to be wrong, you probably won’t come up with anything amazing.

Stop thinking and just do it

There are various things in life one should do in order to get somewhere. But one of the biggest blocks between you achieving anything is when you think too much about something.

Stop thinking!!

I am not saying that you should stop using your brain, but I find it unreasonable to focus on something for so long that someone else manages to do it before you. And when I mean someone else, I am not trying to say that you make others look bad and look down on them for any reason, I mean that in order to be successful at what you do, you really need to turn your ideas into results, and it won’t happen by itself. One needs to take the first step.

Some examples!

  • Ages ago I launched a pay per click search engine, got a few people saying “Naa nothing will happen”.. after four weeks i was earning 200 dollars a night from online commissions
  • Few years back a few friend said that your online radio is taking so much of your time… I used to say you just watch and see. And after a few years in 2007 it won the Most popular and visited radio of 2007 against major radio stations.
  • I registered a few domains for 9 dollars and sold for 6000 dollars each. So the thing is, if you keep thinking “Shall I, Shall I not..” you will be too late

In order to succeed, just go deaf!

This world is a beautiful place to live in, but at the same time we often are faced with hardships and issues that make us wonder if we are capable of handling them. In certain cases we are dragged down by people around us who make us feel that we are unable to do what we are planning. But if you really think about it, the only limit they are forcing upon your thoughts and goals is their own.

A person can manage a lot more if he or she just focuses on their own strengths, because otherwise there is no chance of success and one will never manage anything.

I read a cute story few years back which struck me very well.

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition.
The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants….
The race began….

Honestly: No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as:   “Oh, WAY too difficult!!”

“They will NEVER make it to the top.”

The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one.

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher….
The crowd continued to yell, “It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!”
More tiny frogs got tired and gave up….

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher….

This one wouldn’t give up!

At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?
A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?

It turned out….

That the winner was DEAF!!!!

How wonderful :) So my friends.. be deaf once in a while of all negativity that stops you, there is nothing that can hold you back. If you believe in an idea, go for it!

Why do people fail?

People usually fail because they are on a path which leads to totally unrealistic goals. You can just not reach the sky if you are going to use a few air baloons tied to your hands like the cartoon, UP. It doesn’t work that way.

To succeed one has to go through a tough process of learning and making mistakes. The way I have seen people climb the ladder is sometimes by taking shortcuts. Well the only way to climb a mountain is by taking one step at a time, while I do agree one can take a helicopter as well but there are certain places that won’t reach either.

Taking baby steps is the best thing to do when you want to learn how to walk and then run. And so what if you fall in the way, didn’t you fall when you were a baby? That made you aware that “Ok if i walk this way I will fall, if I walk like this with a balance I won’t fall”.

So reasons why people fail can be defined in such a way:-

  • They have no passion at all in what they are doing
  • They are totally ignorant of the fact that if they don’t succeed ones they can always try again
  • And they have absolutely no faith in their skills and themselves

Remember, if you don’t trust your skills, no one else will either

5 Tips to a great first impression

No matter what we say or do the thing about first impression has been a thing that will never leave us alone. So why not talk about that? Since everyone is affected by it and the first impression tag “tags” along with the person for a long long time, let’s see if we can see as to how one can present a better first impression.

  1. Be friendly : This works wonders. Meet and greet the person with a firm hand-shake. And remember to “Smile”, meet as if its a very good friend, but obviously over-doing it will just make it look fake.
  2. Body language : Don’t turn AWAY from the person when talking. Or don’t cross your arms or legs in the way as if you are uncomfy talking to them, and obviously don’t stare at them as if they got something on their face!
  3. Good posture : A good posture, standing position, is a good sign that you are comfy with yourself and the person you are talking to. Now you don’t want to be bending as if you are looking left and talking from the right corner of your lip to them.. would you like it if I did that to you?
  4. Speak clearly : Some people mumble jumble a lot of their sentences when they are nervous. So follow the first tip. When you see them as a friend, you will smile and be quite clear as to what you got to say.
  5. Be positive : This is very important. I am sure you wouldn’t say that  a person has left a good first impression if the first thing they hear from you is how much you hate your boss, your parents, your siblings, your job, your life.. phew!
