Survival Impact

Incredible things happen to your mind when you survive the worse. You get programmed to boot neurons and activate chemical responses in your brain that just changes how you see the world and recaliberates your way of wordly response.

This bio hack generates incredible life force for you to screw ordinary and contribute impactfully. Release of neuro toxins such as dopamine, serotonin improves cognitive responses.

You breadth different. You behave different. You act different. People see a new found you and that may be a incredible you.

Only thing that matters thereafter is sustainability.

The Big Change…

It is quite incredible to see how people aggressively market their certifications and achievements at workplace on LinkedIn and similar platforms. Such recognition is usually conferred by their current employers who are usually Corporate, Multi-national Cos, Global Partner Enterprises and Industry Bodies. People who get to work with these companies always have this leverage to grow within the system and get recognized. An ecosystem prevails.

On the contrary, what about those guys who are on their own such as SMB entrepreneurs?Are they doomed to live and die in oblivion? Years of hard-work may help them make some money but what about recognition, network and the flaunt?

I think employees and employers working in SMB ecosystem must get a fair chance and a platform to get recognized. Things have changed but still not many employees get credible ‘Best Employee Certificates’. This may be because these certificates do not get the leverage in eyes of the Big Ones (MNC/Corporates) in comparison to their own. Even the ‘Training Certificates’ do not stand tall. Lack of performance management and recognition system adds to misery to the fate of people working in smaller companies. Moreover, non-recognition of smaller companies/employers and entrepreneurs is painful.

Unfortunately, such companies, employers and employees operate in the same ecosystem as bigger companies but for some reasons do not reach a point that makes them worthy of an award or an accolade. And whatever they manage to get, may not impress the high flyers.

Something should be done. Everyone deserves a right to get fame, power and money.

Food for thought? Cheers.

The Placebo Way !

Many times I have seen in my last 10 Years of professional life that systems collapse when you move away for a while or long!

This is the harsh reality for all budding entrepreneurs who are trying to make a mark. The problem is not with the business, problem is with YOU.

At the onset, an entrepreneur or the promoter does not have the liberty to space out. If you start-on this path, believe you me, you are damned to be there. This is a never ending road, with never ending milestones, pit-points and what not. So accept it, once you are in, you are all in.

Second, it is imperative to have the right style of management. You must know, companies are formed not by leadership, but by follower-ship. What I mean is you call a company a company when it has people, processes and systems. So you got to build the team, the systems and the processes. This is the hardest task. Of course, primary reason being the resources- financial, manpower, infra, acumen and what not.

But, I think business is all about common-sense. If you do not have these, get it! After all, there is nothing greater, loftier and mightier than your dream. A dream to succeed and make it big in life.

Third, be a shadow boss. Physical presence is not always needed. Use technology to make your presence felt to your team, customers, vendors and all around. I define it the placebo way- the pill is there and it treats people to make them do better without having to have the salt or you THE BOSS.” 

So that’s about it guys. Word hard – Stay Focus- Peace ! Enjoy the Journey.. Cheers!

Being an Outlier Isn’t Bad !

I have been part of this coveted group for ages- The Outliers. I didn’t know the terminology back then but then I was unknowingly part of it. I think there is an Outlier in all of us. There are times when you think differently. There are times when you seek different. I mean how can ‘One Size Fits All’ work for everybody.

Life is insane. It is not what you want. It is not meant like that. It has its own course and you are part of this big scheme.

The thing that works in your favor is YOU. If you want, you can.

I think in order to win the world, you need to win over you. From being an Outlier, you need to graduate in becoming part of the group and later may be get to the center-stage.

But you have to earn it. You need to rise. And give your best. In whatever you do.

Friends, there are no hard and fast rules in life. There is no full proof path to success. If something works for him, it is not necessary, it will be your fate as well in case you try and copy.

All we can do is do. And to do right, you have to ‘Do You’. What I mean to say is; work on yourself.

Introspect, check out your limitations, just set things right where possible and work on your strengths. It always pays off if you know yourself well.

So be cool, be an outlier and get into the system with your strength wave. You never know when you start getting lucky. And you rise..and rise.
