Food For Thought: Hardwork = Going Further … Is An Illusion

What really makes us productive is not only hard work, but also self care.

Food For Thought: Hardwork = Going Further …is an illusion

💡 In my early days of entrepreneurship, I was so focused on working hard and putting in the grind and hours, believing that all of this would pay off and reap in a waterfall of wealth into my bank account… little to realise 3 years later, I was on the brinks of being broke

Six years later, back in the entrepreneurship space – this time, the illusion that one must work hard to #succeed no longer exists, and here’s HOW AND WHY:

✅ When we live to exist (in life and business) with a purpose that is fulfilling, we begin to enjoy and love what we do in life and business. Anything we do becomes effortless…

✅ Similarly, an entrepreneur (or anyone) who looks beyond wealth, begins to attract the energy levels of the universe and the right people towards them. This is proven by successful entrepreneurs such as Vishen Lakhiani and Richard Branson, who focus on SERVING VS PROFITABILITY

✅ Being successful does not mean one has to live life trying to keep up with the Joneses. 60 to 80 hour workweeks that are not high value task-focused means we neglect our priorities, makes no sense and leads to unfulfillment. 

✅ To short-cut the success process, start focusing on the value created in our hours (the quality of those hours) instead of the number of hours (the quantity).

💎 Putting in a lot of hours and working hard maybe society’s badge of honour that strokes one’s ego, but is it stroking our life and business with joy, love, fulfilment and growth❓ 💎

Direction is enough to make your next choice

Direction is enough to make your next choice

💡 As entrepreneurs, one is bewildered with many decisions, especially in a young upcoming business. Most often, making good decisions requires us to balance the seemingly opposing forces of emotion and rationality.

An ideal world would be one where we are able to predict the future, accurately perceive the present and have insight into the minds of others and deal with uncertainty.

Unfortunately, ideal does not exist. So how does one then manage uncertainty if they feel alone

✅ Have a personal AND business blueprint

➡️ An entrepreneur’s personal and business goals are inextricably linked. Why? Cause our businesses fulfil NOT ONLY our personal goals, BUT also create sustaining impact in the lives of the customers we serve.

✅ Is there a passion and emotion linked to the business?

➡️ As an entrepreneur, long hours and certain sacrifices are required to grow a business. But when we are emotionally connected with our WHY and PASSION (both in business and our personal life), putting in long hours won’t feel like a sacrifice. 

💎 If we obsess over whether we are making the right decision, we are basically assuming that the universe will reward us for one thing and punish us for another ~ Deepak Chopra 💎

To find a better path, explore a different path

To find a better path, explore a different path

💡 We may think our life path is figured out years in advance, but, for many of us (I know for me in particular), nothing is ever set in stone.

Starting off as a CA in 2010, venturing into entrepreneurship (failing at it terribly for 3 years), going back to corporate for a few years, and now leading a completely different field of life which is to “serve others” is no ordinary path for anyone.

The point behind this

✅ There is no fast and easy way to figure out if one is on the right path right now. But a self-assessment rain check is important in 3 areas, namely our state of fulfilment, happiness and if there is stress beyond reason.

✅ If we are unable to tick these 3 fundamental blocks in our daily activities, whether its entrepreneurs running a business or someone working in a job, there may just be a call for a new path.

✅ The key origination of the human (and entrepreneurial) heart is to be mission and value driven, not monetary driven. When we are mission and value embraced, we will attract the energy fields of the universe and all the wealth will attract itself.

💎 Getting lost along our path is a part of finding the path we are meant to be on ~ Robin Sharma 💎

The 3 minute self gratitude technique

The 3 minute self gratitude technique

💡 Cultivating gratitude helps us re-frame our perspective. When we learn how to shift our mindset from what we think we want, need, or must accomplish to be successful, towards an attitude of appreciation for all that we have now, fulfilment arrives in our personal and professional lives.

Many may ask, how then does gratitude and entrepreneurship go hand-in-hand in light of boosting a business

✅ As entrepreneurs, stress may be evident especially at the early stages of a business lifecycle, and may result in depression, anxiety, or substance abuse.

➡️ By practicing gratitude, we create a powerful internal energetic force that supports our physical and emotional health during turbulent times.

✅ Remember, what we focus on expands, and so, whatever we put our attention on, we get more of. Focusing on problems only begets more problems❗️

➡️ To counteract this, and add some other benefits to our life, we include gratitude and optimism as a habit i.e. If we always look for the bad, are we not missing out on what’s good❓

✅ Many entrepreneurs believe happiness is a “nice to have” luxury that arrives after a lifetime of sacrifice. The truth…that’s bullsh*t❗️

➡️ When we are focused on creating meaningful purpose, impact and lead a life with intent, we begin to find connections and happiness in all we do, from people to clients to wealth creation.

💧 Spend three minutes a day scanning the world for three new things you’re grateful for. And do that for 21 days 💧

Are you a driver or passenger in your business?

Are you a driver or passenger in your business?

💡 Having failed in multiple start ups early on in my career, and having to revert back to corporate world for a few years before returning in the entrepreneurial race, I realized there are two distinct groups of people when it comes to choosing our own destiny: 1) those who drive (change and take action), and 2) those who follow a lead.

What may the difference between entrepreneurs (or individuals) who then choose to sit in the driver’s seat vs the passenger seat?

✅ Being the driver means, we have control of our outcomes i.e. we decide which highway to take, which side road to escape traffic, whether to slam brakes or hit the accelerator etc…

It’s easy to visualize the above, as we see (or sit in) cars almost daily. Yet, many of us may struggle applying this principle in our career, business or personal life…WHY❓

✅ When we haven’t seen the end outcome in reality, instinct may call us out on self doubt and fear of failure…

✅ So we then step back into our comfort zone in fear the result may not be as expected

✅ The downside… do we live a life unfulfilled not realizing our true potential and ultimate dreams of our purpose in life❓

💎 To drive or be chauffeured (in life and business) is our conscious choice 💎
