These 3S are the basic ingredient of an entrepreneur!!
I’m a survivor too!!
As an entrepreneur I have pinned many quotes in my board room to stay motivated.. Likewise I use many quotes to motivate people and to pump up their enthusiasm..
One quote I frequently use is;
A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.. – by Albert Einstein
This is one quote which I kept telling to my critics, my team leaders and want-to be entrepreneurs..
The quote very well explains by itself. But the quote explains;
This Quote was a game changer to me and hope it have made an impact on many others too..
Thanks to Einstein…
Went to office today to catch up on some pending line items… A lot were planned to catch up for the lost time..
But it was not moving as I expected.. Things were moving very slowly and we made little progress..
Being a leader I couldn’t let my motivation down and I tried my level best to pumped up…
Went out for a walk, came back to office and watched some movivational clippings from YouTube…
After competing the day I found out where was the snag and took up those snags to Swami immediately…
Though this day has not given the desired result I’m sure this will make way for the great things we are going to do this year..
Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. – by Jacob Riis
Knowingly or Unknowingly all my business ventures have been launched before I ready!!
My first venture Agriya;
This was a turning point not in my life but also for a bunch of friends and acquaintances who started their own ventures looking at the success of my first venture!!!
My second venture People Justice Magazine!!!
The venture failed as I was not full time into it!!! Also the team I formed didn’t connect with the vision I carried!!! I wanted to go digital during 2005 and the team collapsed for the same reason!!! Today it would have been a great if we have changed!!! Anyway the learnings and connects it gave me was stupendous!!! Also we were able to print magazines for 2 years!!!
My third venture Cogzidel Technologies!!!
Still running the Show!!! Not reached the heights I anticipated!!! But able to run so far and I’m ready to take a great leap!!
My third venture Cogzidel Consultancy Services!!!
Today this company is our identity in India!!! Almost every Startups in Chennai should be aware of CCS!!! In less than a year we got the business & operational knowledge and we are working on great things!!!
My fourth venture Movie Production!!!
The movie flopped miserably!!! But I wouldn’t consider it a loss as it was a crowd funded movie and the loss can be substantiated for the experience of being associated with the industry!!!
Also can’t call it a failure yet as I’m on a sabbatical and planning to venture back!! This time not as a producer but as a distributor!!!
But in every case I was not ready with Capital or Experience or Knowledge or Team or any other aspects… But as I perceived everything fell in line and things happened!!!
So, I’d tell anyone running behind SUCCESS to blindly believe in the quote!!
THE KEY TO SUCCESS IS TO START BEFORE YOU’RE READY!!!
I’ve personally experienced these phases and saw fit for want to be entrepreneurs to frame it in their drawing room!!
This is why you must not give up;
