One man is bound by high office, another by wealth; good birth weighs down some, and a humble origin others; some bow under the rule of other men and some under their own; some are restricted to one place by exile, others by priesthoods: all life is a servitude.

So you have to get used to your circumstances, complain about them as little as possible, and grasp whatever advantage they have to offer: no condition is so bitter that a stable mind cannot find some consolation in it.”
~ Seneca, On the Shortness of Life

12 must qualities to be a successful entrepreneur

by  Darpan Sachdeva

Elon Musk



 

During the  course of  my entrepreneurship journey ,in those moments of  despair  when the things are not working  as per your ambitions and needs ,i often wonder  on what exactly is entrepreneurship and what qualities  make of a successful entrepreneur.

Wikipedia defines it like this:

“An entrepreneur is an owner or manager of a business enterprise who makes money through risk and initiative.”
Harvard Business School Professor Howard Stevenson:

Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled.”
After reading and thinking about all of this, I stand by my (relatively) broad definition of an entrepreneur–namely, that anyone who takes on the risk of working for him or herself is (at least one type of) an entrepreneur.Entrepreneurship is made  of certain defined qualities and traits that go in building up of a successful entrepreneur.

Down below are the 12 traits :

1.Self Confidence:

rule4

Entrepreneurs are confident in themselves and their abilities. They recognize that they don’t know everything or control all the available resources. Instead, they have a keen ability to understand what they need. Then, they go get it. They educate themselves or partner with others who have a needed skill set or experience.

 

2.Creativity and Innovation:

steve jobs

Not only do you have to be curious as an entrepreneur, you must also be creative.  Isn’t that the essence of entrepreneurism?  You know, to create stuff?New products.  New solutions.  New ways.  Willing to think of all possibilities.  Almost like a child.

“The ability to be creative as an entrepreneur is a must”.

Co-Founder and CEO of Elemental Technologies

3.Determination:

success-4

When you set out to become an entrepreneur it will require you to set very clear goals along the way. Growing your business, increasing sales and hiring new employees require several micro-goals within them to be executed successfully.This type of workload and challenge is enough to stop many people from pursuing the entrepreneurial career path. You have to be determined from the beginning to be successful — before you even start. If you aren’t fully determined to make it there is a good chance you will crumble under the pressure.

4.Risk Takers:

Ins-and-Outs-of-Risk-Taking

Some of the most successful entrepreneurs took major risks, and they paid off in a big way.
Your tolerance for risk has to be low.  It doesn’t matter if you figure out ways to “mitigate” risk (which you should), or you spend 10 years in the planning stage of business (plan yes, 10 years – no), in the end; you have to get off your tail and take action.

Entrepreneurs take risks.  They take action.  Each one may have a slightly different risk meter, but when the time comes; they step out of their comfort zone and risk through taking action.

Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran turned a $1,000 loan into a $5 billion-dollar real estate business that she sold for $66 million back in 2001.

Many would assume it isn’t possible to start a business with very little money, but those who aren’t afraid to take risks don’t see things such as limited funding as a handicap.

5.Vision:

steve jobs vision

“Vision is the art of seeing what’s invisible to others.” – Jonathan Swift

One of the defining characteristics every real entrepreneur should have is the ability to create and deliver a vision. The trait to be curious and not settle for less push entrepreneurs forward to imagine what’s not there yet, then they strive to innovate and thus grab on the opportunity to be the pioneers in that particular field.

Elon Musk is one great example of an entrepreneur with a huge vision to transform humanity, and he brought great innovations that changed the world for better. But before he did that, he was a visionaire.


6.Persistence:

failure

 




 

True entrepreneurs never, never, never quit.  Never.

“The number one trait you find in all successful entrepreneurs is tenacity.  Just the sheer will to keep going, even when things look impossible.
It’s more likely for entrepreneurs with that are mentally tough to succeed compared to those who get depressed and break down easily. It’s not just because people who are tough mentally manage their emotions better and are able to cope with more stress, mentally tough entrepreneurs simply give up way later. And perseverance is the key to success, there is no such thing as an overnight success.

“It takes 20 years to make an overnight success.” – Eddie Cantor

7.Networking and Communication:

network

A large collection of business cards and a huge contact list doesn’t make you an expert at networking. Building value-based relationships that are truly meaningful is what networking is all about — these are the relationships that lead to business opportunities and long-term relationships that are mutually beneficial.

The ability to communicate effectively is huge for  as entrepreneurs.  We must be clear; concise; easy to understand.  Both in writing and verbally.

8.Integrity:

entrepreneur-business-success-quotes11

Integrity plays a huge role in the success of your entrepreneurial journey. It directly contributes to the relationship and trust you build with anyone involved in the business from investors to team members to customers. Not a single business transaction can be done without a sufficient amount of trust.But, it’s more than that…Being an entrepreneur with integrity is not just about starting a business and making a profit in the long run and serving people. Along the journey of innovating, creating, managing, selling and marketing, you will soon pick up a double-edged skill: the ability to persuade.Having the mindset of bringing value to people around you and society should be a part of your vision. When you’re able to plant an idea and create an impact in someone else’s mind and life, use that ability wisely.

9.Resourcefulness:

Resourcefullness entrepreneur

When asking what’s the biggest challenge to start and run a successful business, most people will give you these answers.

  • Capital and fund
  • Labor and manpower
  • Knowledge and skills
  • Connection
  • Luck
  • And more

But is it true? It’s true if the person who starts or run the business is not resourceful, and not flexible.

Starting a business and making a business a success are two totally different things. So you need to be very resourceful, you have to be willing to learn, improve and take advantage of all the resources that are available to you. All the information you need is out there, but you need to go out and find it. Make Google, your new best friend.

10. Deal with failures:

success-is-often-nothing-more-than-moving-from-one-failure-to-another-without-loss-of-enthusiasm

Richard Branson said it best: “Few first ventures work out. It is how a beginning entrepreneur deals with failure that sets that person apart. In fact, failure is one of the secrets to success, since some of the best ideas arise from the ashes of a shuttered business.”

If you understand that failure is part of being an entrepreneur, you will take those failures and use them as learning experiences. Real world experience, even failing, will teach you more than you would ever learn in a classroom.

11.Adaptable and flexible:

entrepreneur photos

If entrepreneurs had the ability to see what was hiding around each turn it would make it much easier — but unfortunately that is not the case. There can be surprises around every corner, even with a well thought out plan and strategy.

Business is a survival game, you need to be adaptive. A real recent example is Blackberry, they were at the top of the the game before the iPhone came, and now they are almost out of business. Why? They were not willing to adapt to the market that was changing.

To be a real successful entrepreneur, you need to have a certain level of flexibility.

To be able to adapt, you need to be very honest with yourself when you see a problem or a mistake, tell yourself “this isn’t working” frankly and take immediate action to pivot. Always keep an open mind and willingness to learn from your mentors (if you have one), role models, competitors and most importantly your customers.

12.Money management:

shark tank

It doesn’t matter if you are bootstrapping your business, using personal credit cards or have millions of dollars from investors — you must have excellent money management skills. Poor financial decisions, such as overspending or allocating funds to less important tasks can quickly ruin a business.

Have a clear financial map drawn out — what are your essential monthly expenses and obligations? How much can you allocate monthly for items that fall outside of the “essential” category? Stick to your plan and make sure all founders and shareholders are on the same page. Money problems can destroy a business the same way they can ruin a marriage.

The Biology of Positive Habits

Reposted by Darpan Sachdeva

Posted by  Leah Shafer and Iman Rastegari on March 21, 2016 12:14 PM

 

Your brain may be hard-wired to focus on the negative, but (with practice) you can reprogram it.

Biology of Positive Thinking

Stress happens, especially in education. A packed schedule, a new request from administrators, papers to grade, an accidentally missed appointment, spilled coffee . . . your head pounds, your shoulders tense, your eyelids droop. You feel stuck. How can you get a better handle on this?

One valuable, often overlooked, and durable way to manage stress is to build positive habits, slowly and over time. Our brains are hard-wired to focus on the negative, but by practicing mindfulness, we can reprogram them — teach our brains to accentuate positive experiences and maintain serenity.

Habit and the Brain

 

 

The human brain evolved with a “negativity bias,” says mindfulness expert Metta McGarvey, a lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Negative events and thoughts have a proportionally greater impact on our memory and psychological state than positive ones do. From a survival standpoint, it makes sense — strong recollections of bad experiences means we’re more likely to learn from mistakes and avoid a life-threatening situation.

This negativity bias also means that smaller, day-to-day stressors tend to take precedence in our thoughts, leaving less room for positive framing or constructive action planning. But it doesn’t have to stay that way.

Our brains can change, physically, as a result of learning, says McGarvey. In a process called “experience dependent neuroplasticity,” neural connections grow based on what we’re learning. Repeating the same thoughts, feelings, and behaviors increases synaptic connectivity, strengthens neural networks, and creates new neurons through learning. In other words, practicing a positive habit can predispose our thoughts to be more affirmative.


Brain Training

The key to developing these positive habits? Mindfulness.

According to researchers at the Greater Good Science Center, a project at the University of California, Berkeley, mindfulness has two core components: maintaining an awareness of our immediate thoughts, feelings, and surroundings; and accepting these thoughts and feelings without judging them. McGarvey explains it as “single-tasking,” or approaching any situation with your undivided attention and keeping that attention on the present moment.

By approaching your work with mindfulness, you decrease the amount of energy you spend worrying about the past or the future, and you increase the amount of attention you give to present and positive experiences. But because stress and worrying can be so engrained, McGarvey explains, you need to practice (and keep practicing) the skills and habits you need to keep your attention on the present.

She offers five mindfulness exercises that build brain-strengthening positive habits over time:

  1. Several times a day, take a short break from whatever you’re doing — step away from the computer, put down your phone, close your book — and look at something different. Savor the feeling of calm for a minute or two.
  2. Practice looking for small moments of beauty or kindness throughout your day: raindrops moving across your window, a moment of warmth in the sunshine, an amiable exchange with a stranger. Focusing on the positive will strengthen your ability to turn your attention away from worries.
  3. Search for and comment on the positive qualities and actions of others. This behavior is especially important in exchanges with loved ones; research has shown that successful marriages have five positive interactions for each negative one. Appreciating the good in others, says McGarvey, “creates a ‘virtuous cycle’ that builds positive communication and relational habits.”
  4. Exercise. Calming meditations, yoga, and tai chi can all activate the parasympathetic nervous system and evoke a physically relaxed state. Making any of these practices into a habit can make it easier for your body to relax after a stressful event.
  5. Remember that habits can be hard to form, and change takes time. Focusing on the positive means going against your brain’s automatic response systems. Try to be persistent with your mindfulness practices, but don’t beat yourself up if you slip and find yourself getting stressed. Be gentle with yourself.

5 Steps To Stay Motivated In Times Of Uncertainty

by Cloris Kyliehand sun and blue sky with copyspace showing freedom or solar power concept




 

It was a Saturday morning, sunny and relatively warm even though it was the middle of winter. Driving toward the highway, I reminded myself to rehearse my elevator pitch a few more times before that morning’s networking meeting.

But before I could rehearse my pitch, I spotted a “Going-Out-of-Business Sale” sign at one of my favorite shops. I sighed. Another business who had failed! I thought of the somber statistics I had read on several Internet sites: on average, 8 out of 10 businesses are doomed to fail. A chill settled in my gut.

What if my business became one of the losers? What I failed? And if I had such a high chance of failing, was it even worth it to spend my Saturday at a networking meeting? Why bother? That’s when I realized that the uncertainty of my future was putting my motivation—and confidence—at risk.

If you feel that your uncertain future might be hurting your motivation, you might benefit from these 5 steps:

 

1. Create a list of positive and negative scenarios

I wrote 5 possible scenarios, ranked from “Life Is Perfect” to “What a Nightmare!” My immediate reaction to the worst-case scenario was that the chances of it happening were ridiculously low, which made me feel safer.

You, too, might realize that a disaster scenario, while probable, is not the most likely to materialize. This encouraging realization will allow you to keep going with a much more positive mindset.

“See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort.” – Dalai Lama

2. Write the possible consequences of each scenario
Listing all possible scenarios isn’t enough. I expanded my list by imagining what would happen if each of the 5 possible scenarios came true. This objective assessment was a powerful way to pinpoint potential obstacles to overcome in case of a least-desirable scenario. It was also a gauge of the delightful results I would realize if things went according to plan.

Start with the worst possible scenario and work your way up to the best. If you end this exercise by imagining the wonderful life that awaits you if you’re successful, you’ll spark positive momentum to skyrocket your motivation.

3. Devise a plan to avoid possible problems
Lack of foresight is one of the most common precursors of failure. Knowing this, I listed all the action steps I need to take to avoid the 2 worst case scenarios. Because I knew the problems that could potentially arise, I was in a great position to prepare for these challenges and avoid them altogether.

It’s your turn to be proactive. Create a comprehensive list of action steps you will follow to avoid possible issues in the future, and leave time in your schedule to execute these action steps. Seek outside help if you need it.

Being prepared will not only minimize your chances of failure, but will motivate you to keep working hard to achieve what you desire.

4. Create a worst-case scenario strategy
Having an exit strategy is a key to succeed in business—and in life. I asked myself, “What will I do if the worst happens?” I created a detailed “Plan B” that would also allow me to use my gifts and live my passion.

What would you do if things went wrong? Don’t focus on the unwanted results. Instead, place your attention of alternatives that would, in the end, also lead to fulfillment and satisfaction. Keep the end goal in mind but also keep an open mind.

This is a powerful exercise that will temper your feeling of uncertainty. You will feel safe and encouraged. You’ll know that a deviation from your original plan is not a failure. Instead, it’s an opportunity to explore a whole new set of possibilities.

5. List the times things worked out exactly the way you wanted them
To no avail, I tried to find a time in my life when my future was 100% predictable. That’s when it hit me. Life is never certain, and that’s what makes it exciting!

Remember that you have learned and grown as a person because of life’s endless surprises. Some of those surprises will be pleasant, and some will not. But in the end, you are who you are today as a result of your life experiences.

In a few words, certainty is an illusion. This is a profound realization that will help you look at the future without fear.

“Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” -Winston Churchill

Follow the 5 steps above to keep your motivation reserves healthy and plentiful, and continue taking daily, focused steps to design a successful and fulfilling life!

Rules to Success by Ratan Tata | Indian Business Leader | Entrepreneur

by Darpan Sachdeva

With my extreme love and appreciation for the Tata  family and the group as a whole , i am confident that  Mr Ratan Tata is always going to be the key hold name and inspiration for all the entrepreneurs globally now and for the times to come.

Mr Ratan Tata is an Indian Business Leader, investor, philanthropist and Chairman of TATA Group. The Video down below  is a tribute to the great man.We know him by his vision, ideas, Entrepreneurship skills, Quotes, Business strategies, Philosophy, ethics. His Motivational Speech inspires us every time. He has been  honored with Padam Bhushan and Padam Vibhushan ,Indian national  awards for his service.




 

Down below are few takeaways for any entrepreneur  from an interview with him at the launch of seed program— Kstart, on Feb 5th, 2016.

If you were a 26-year old entrepreneur of today

Ideas come when you see a problem. Find problems to solve and then put time, energy and efforts to create ventures out of these thoughts or ideas.

In the very limited time that I have been associated with startups, I have heard ideas which I thought would never work. However, those ideas have gone ahead and done fairly well. I realized I am on the learning curve of understanding what young intelligent people around me can do.

Principles on which companies should be formed.

It is exciting if your idea can change the way people live, think or sustain themselves. For me, partly due to my involvement in philanthropy, I am particularly excited when an idea can, in addition, make a positive difference.

What qualities should one look for in an investor?

One looks for investors who have a similar sort of excitement and passion for what one is trying to do. Collaborate with an investor who is not only willing to risk his money but also participates in the journey of the entrepreneur, and use his contacts, mentorship etc. to make the entrepreneur’s vision work in the real world.

Growth v/s profitability, how does one find the equilibrium?

There is no single formula or proven science behind this. In the last few years, I have seen companies grow at rates that I never thought would be possible. The next question then is, can these growth rates be sustained. I think it should be about how you want your vision to be implemented and then closely monitor the progress at each stage.

Importance of creating a personal brand for a startup CEO

I think it is a personal choice to build your brand inseparable from a company, some people do it while others don’t.

Many founders believe that communicating too much gives away their competitive advantage. However, an active system of communication with all stakeholders is a great plus. Successful CEOs do it religiously. It is important to know that “how the world sees you is a result of how well you communicate”.

Celebrating success and defining moments

There have been several successful moments in my journey. But the one moment under the sun that clearly stands out for me was the launch of the Tata Nano. The idea came when I saw a family going on a scooter on a rainy day. They met with an accident and were lying on the road. That got me thinking about how to make a two wheeler safe — which in turn led to the concept of making an affordable four wheeler. Tata Nano is a result of that thought.

We put together a team to design and manufacture the car at a price point that was extremely affordable. We launched it at the auto expo in Delhi. It was a spectacular event.

One thing you wish you had known at 26

As a young employee at Jamshedpur, I went to my bosses with a lot of ideas, but often I wouldn’t be heard and would be told to continue doing what I was doing. In such situations, I yearned for an environment where one would be heard when one had an idea. Maybe, I did not know how to frame my question or idea. I think how you communicate is something you wish you could have done better when you were young.

His inspirations

  • JRD Tata: who left his mark on the industry in India; was a tremendous mentor to me
  • Henry Schacht: Former chairman and CEO of Cummins Diesel inspired me a lot. I learnt a lot from him.
  • Amar Bose, who formed the Bose Corporation. He and I became very close. We spent a lot of time exchanging ideas.

The power of believing that you can improve:Carol Dweck( TED Talk)

by  Darpan Sachdeva

Carol Dweck is a pioneering researcher in the field of motivation, why people succeed (or don’t) and how to foster success.Dweck is a professor at Stanford and the author of Mindset, a classic work on motivation and “growth mindset.” Her work is influential among educators and increasingly among business leaders as well.

Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain’s capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.
