Faltered Role Model

Som ”in our life many a time we choose role models and then…”

Mike ‘do not taunt me… agreed I imitated him.. just relied on lavish life style,.. did whatsoever he was doing and went bankrupt’

Som ‘ Look at nations.. in quest of imitation.. unemployment issue is overlooked..”

Mike ”relax.. we are going to get a big boom in employment soon”

Som ”let us stop this topic… I wanted to inform you of Jenny”

Mike has pains in his eyes..

Mike ”she..imitated her mother and broke from me”

Som ”can you stop it.. .do you know what happened to her”

Mike ”not sure.. last she was with me 5 years back”

Som ”she donated her last amount of fund to a village in India”

Mike ”so what… she has this habit of donating right from time I met her.. she distributed my wealth too”

Som ”she plans to work on a concept ”ALTERED ROLE MODEL”

Mike ”what is that…’

Som ”We should not blindly follow history and believe in it.. just at times, look at positive aspects of ecosystem and enjoy…   each person in this world has been destined to have a particular life style by default.. then the alteration process begins.. multiple teacher, friends, family relatives.. and so on .. each influence us.. so her concept is all about influencers in a person”s life and mapping them for you as gift.. the positive vs.. negative energy… did you like the concept?”

Mike ”Why she left me?”

Som ”because you had gone arrogant with your wealth.. you and those yatch parties with ladies”

Mike smiles…

Mike ”seriously..  life teaches us .. that when an anchor is at home.. never leave that anchor.. .can I meet her?”

Som ”who stopped you from meeting”

1 week latter

Jenny ”hey… how are you doing..”

Mike ”altered model… plan to imitate you”

Jenny ”you ought to be kidding”

Mike ‘human relation of couple is such that if they gel well, understand well.. imitation process begins by default… Jenny I love you still.. can we give our relation and our faltered model of relationship another chance?:

Jenny ”let us go for a date today… evening Delhi Hatt’

In evening…

Mike ”so many state food and so yummy it looks.. wonder if stomach will get upset”

Jenny ”Mike.. so much of vibrancy here… sometimes.. I feel for all the imitations.. why cannot 2 countries.. 2 states.. all brain storm and make win-win employment situation”

Mike ”not again.. how come you also talking about same issue”

Jenny ”PASSION.. it compels me to think of a problem which all face in life… a low phase..

Mike ”Jenny can we check our future with this tarrot reader

a few minutes latter

The tarrot reader ”dear ones.. both of you are destined to be united together and be in India for long term”

Mike ”do not kid”

Tarrot reader sheepishly ”Sir.. you will be united together.. but we need bright entrepreneurs from USA to set up their offices in India.. be with us..”

Mike ”what is your background?”

Reader ”I was jobless for many years.. and then found here.. good number of god men succeed ..so ”

Mike looks at Jenny ”please launch altered role model concept soon’

Reader ”what is that…’

Mike ‘dear tarrot reader.. we will be in India for long time”

 

Unseen Happiness

A school teacher is very happy that his student has got nominated the best outstanding entrepreneur of the year..

Teacher ‘what a good student he was.. always on time, punctual, methodical.. i always saw the spark in him’

All the new teachers also are in full praise..

2nd teacher ‘can he now place our kids in his startup’

Teacher ‘great idea.. will prepare list of all our kid’s name.. who are jobless and explore if it is possible.. as he is from rural side.. he will appreciate our pain points’

2 months later

Teacher ‘not sure.. I didn’t get any response.. hope he knows that we are happy about him”

Other teachers ”you made a mistake of expecting something from your student.. ‘

Teacher smiles ”I agree… we should know that our students are supposed to do better then us in life and we should not try to even compete or expect anything from them’

Principal comes in..

Principal ‘did you ever find even one successful startup entrepreneur contributing to the school or college in which that person studied? may be handful… but then they need to realize that unseen happiness is in their school compound.. college compound and many other joints where they used to struggle, discuss, strive to better themselves”

 

Startups Graveyard

Hari ‘this is going to be a disaster.. Investments not coming in.. let us close the startup’

Nancy ‘common.. not 1 more still in graveyard’

Hari ‘I think the biggest mistake we did was to not evolve a paying model during boot strap itself’

Nancy ‘every year so many startups shutting down,.. and with it the numerous dreams buried with it’

Hari ‘Not sure.. again will begin searching job’

Nancy ‘hey..you are an entrepreneur right.. startup something again… didn’t you know that even after a person expires, it will reborn again.. so just step up.. do not get worried about the graveyard

 

 

Bottled up Startups

Bottled Up startups are the ones who are wishing to come out of their shell and explore; disrupt the world with innovation..

So there you have startup entrepreneurs; controling your cool, diplomatically smiling, being networked, being connected to seek more experiences and just being self at times is lost.. as whatsoever needs to be done is through controlled emotions.

There could be many trying to validate and confirm whether the controlled emotions do exist in an entrepreneur as eventually an entrepreneur needs to be a diplomatic person and have the product or service speak for itself.

Innovation is a perception which we feel is largely found in startup culture however MNCs and Large Corporates have begun the think-tank sessions to bring the innovation.

One of the most important trait for an entrepreneur is to understand what has bottled up and what needs to be vomitted of before the emotions burst in form of admiting a failure or before an entrepreneur realizes that only being on investor’s funds is not the right thing so in case a right team or right cofounder or right resource needed to fit into your venture success.. Do it right way… Vent out your weaknesses in the dark or write it on a piece of paper and review it again. Once confirmed, strive to overcome them and once you realize your weakness cannot be overcomed so easily.. Just get going and identify the right skilled partner to help you and grow you. It is not about face value but market value which eventually plays an important role.

Failures are part of life, it is better to understand causes of failure and take control of those rather then bottling up the causes of failures and not taking control of your own venture. This will only make you feel like a bottled up startup.
