“A founder is the Jockey & his idea is his horse”

“A founder is the Jockey & his idea is his horse”

It's a myth or a misconception that investors invests on “Ideas”. Investors are rich people who love smart people! They fund to the brains, they invest on doers. Money is gambled on Jockeys, not horses ; as Jockeys drive horses, similarly, funds are invested on the founders as they are passionate, they drive it, they make it big. The passion and perseverance of founder is primary.Idea & its potential is secondary; as even if there is no potential for the idea, a passion of the founder can create it. The game is about the “Jockey” and not the ‘Horse’.

“Difficulties pretend to be impossibilities”

“Difficulties pretend to be impossibilities”



It look like it's impossible, but thats myth, an illusion. The difficulties portray as
if they are impossibilities, but they are not. Yes, nothing is impossible, and
yeah the word itself says, “I M POSSIBLE”. As you are reading this, ask your
judgemental mind to shut up as soon as it gives you stupid examples of
some impossible stuffs. (As actor Sharman Joshi, in 3 Idiots proves that a
toothpaste is impossible to put back in the tube, that's pessimism).
Come on! It's about the risks you are avoiding, its about those decisions
which you are procrastinating, it's about those new initiatives which you are
postponing because they are difficult, they are hard, they are tough, they
might push you to get out of your comfort zone.
They are surely possible, you can at least try and then come to a conclusion.
You can definitely make it possible!

“Businesses succeed on common sense; which is not so common”

“Businesses succeed on common sense; which is not so common”

Don't you think that Google has simply created a search engine which helps users to get easy access to information? Have you not given thought that Coke is just a Cola drink which is like a thirst quencher with some sugary taste? Do you really think that Instagram is a billion dollar idea or a rocket science complex technology? Flipkart for that matter!

All the successful businesses, people have 1 thing in common;(which is actually not so common), i.e. Common Sense! A common sense says, your business idea/product/service is actually for customers, not for YOU. If it solves some problems of your customer, if it is making their lives better, they pay, period! If you use your common sense to observe and identify what exactly people want(which keeps on changing as you know change is inevitable) and you provide them a value, at the best deal, you will succeed!

“Success is costly, that’s the reason very few people can afford it”

“Success is costly, that’s the reason very few people can afford it”

Almost, every other person wants to be successful. Many wish to be millionaires.
Majority of the people wants to succeed in their lives; professionally/personally.
But, very few people reach to those levels; as “success” is costly, it is not
everyone’s cup of tea. Many desires, but very few deserves. To achieve anything,
you need to analyse its cost. You have to pay the cost, no matter you analysed it
or gone with the flow. Ask to those who made millions of dollars, ask to those
who created something big, ask to those who are running successful companies
and brands for decades, ask to those who are love married. If you wanna be
successful, understand its cost, analyse its prerequisite. Prepare yourself for
the cost, afford it!

“Before building your team, build a leader within YOU”

“Before building your team, build a leader within YOU”

Are you an Entrepreneur or you wanna be? Are you planning to hire team of people to make your dreams come true? Or
Do you have existing team and they are not motivated enough, or work consistently?
You need to build a leader within you, before building the team. The captain is the most crucial member of the team. The captain ship are achieved through great leadership qualities and endeavors. You have to analyse yourself whether you have those qualities before hiring your 1st employee.They cannot lead as of now, that's the reason they need a leader and not a boss! People need leaders, great leaders. You can be a great leader, and your team will automatically become a great team with the great leader.

“Without trigger, there is no rigour”

“Without trigger, there is no rigour”



Do you know your WHY? Do you know why you are doing, whatever you are doing? If yes, that's the reason for your rigorous approach. If you don't know, you need to find the ‘reason’, the ‘cause’. It will be your trigger. It will ignite the flame within you, it will induce the fire within your belly. Your ‘WHY’ will make your ‘How’ easier. Without the trigger, there will not be a rigour.

“Your Potential needs Expression”


“Your Potential needs Expression”


You have immense potential, tremendous capacities, huge power within
yourself. You can express it! Without expression,its hidden, its untapped. You
are born with a great talent, you have to identify your passion & pursue it. It's
a secret for the world outside, but you can open it. Unless, you open it, it will
be a secret forever!
Explore yourself, justify your potential. You have unlimited powers. Express
Yourself….
