What is ikigai?

In Japan, millions of people have ikigai (pronounced Ick-ee-guy)— a reason to jump out of bed each morning.
What’s your reason for getting up in the morning?
Your ikigai is at the intersection of what you are good at and what you love doing” 

ikigai is seen as the convergence of four primary elements:
  • What you love (your passion)
  • What the world needs (your mission)
  • What you are good at (your vocation)
  • What you can get paid for (your profession)
Discovering your own ikigai is said to bring fulfilment, happiness and make you live longer.
Want to find your Ikigai? Ask yourself the following four questions:
1. What do I love?
2. What am I good at?
3. What can I be paid for now — or something that could transform into my future hustle?
4. What does the world need?
What is the one simple thing you could do or be today that would be an expression of your ikigai?
Find it and pursue it with all you have, anything less is not worth your limited time on planet earth.

How to BUY Happiness ?

Buy Experiences, Not Things

When you work hard every single day and there’s only so much money left after your regular expenses, you have to make certain it’s well spent. Spend your limited funds on what science says will make you happy. Here is an excerpt from an article by Travis Bradberry.
The Irony Of Possessions
A 20-year study conducted by Dr. Thomas Gilovich, a psychology professor at Cornell University, reached a powerful and straightforward conclusion: Don’t spend your money on things. The trouble with things is that the happiness they provide fades quickly. There are three critical reasons for this:
• We get used to new possessions. What once seemed novel and exciting quickly becomes the norm.
• We keep raising the bar. New purchases lead to new expectations. As soon as we get used to a new possession, we look for an even better one.
• The Joneses are always lurking nearby. Possessions, by their nature, foster comparisons. We buy a new car and are thrilled with it until a friend buys a better one—and there’s always someone with a better one.

“One of the enemies of happiness is adaptation,” Gilovich said. “We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed. But only for a while. New things are exciting to us at first, but then we adapt to them.”
The irony of possessions is that we assume that the happiness we get from buying something will last as long as the thing itself. It seems intuitive that investing in something we can see, hear, and touch on a permanent basis delivers the best value. But it’s wrong.

The Power Of Experiences
Gilovich and other researchers have found that experiences—as fleeting as they may be—deliver more-lasting happiness than things. Here’s why:
Experiences become a part of our identity. We are not our possessions, but we are the accumulation of everything we’ve seen, the things we’ve done, and the places we’ve been. Buying an Apple Watch isn’t going to change who you are; taking a break from work to hike the Appalachian Trail from start to finish most certainly will.
“Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods,” said Gilovich. "You can really like your material stuff. You can even think that part of your identity is connected to those things, but nonetheless they remain separate from you. In contrast, your experiences really are part of you. We are the sum total of our experiences."
Comparisons matter little. We don’t compare experiences in the same way that we compare things. In a Harvard study, when people were asked if they’d rather have a high salary that was lower than that of their peers or a low salary that was higher than that of their peers, a lot of them weren’t sure. But when they were asked the same question about the length of a vacation, most people chose a longer vacation, even though it was shorter than that of their peers. It’s hard to quantify the relative value of any two experiences, which makes them that much more enjoyable.
Anticipation matters. Gilovich also studied anticipation and found that anticipation of an experience causes excitement and enjoyment, while anticipation of obtaining a possession causes impatience. Experiences are enjoyable from the very first moments of planning, all the way through to the memories you cherish forever.

Experiences are fleeting (which is a good thing). Have you ever bought something that wasn’t nearly as cool as you thought it would be? Once you buy it, it’s right there in your face, reminding you of your disappointment. And even if a purchase does meet your expectations, buyer’s remorse can set in: “Sure, it’s cool, but it probably wasn’t worth the money.” We don’t do that with experiences. The very fact that they last for only a short time is part of what makes us value them so much, and that value tends to increase as time passes.

Bringing It All Together
Gilovich and his colleagues aren’t the only ones who believe that experiences make us happier than things do. Dr. Elizabeth Dunn at the University of British Columbia has also studied the topic, and she attributes the temporary happiness achieved by buying things to what she calls “puddles of pleasure.” In other words, that kind of happiness evaporates quickly and leaves us wanting more. Things may last longer than experiences, but the memories that linger are what matter most.

While studying about it, I came across to following message.

I am sure you'll love it as well..
It will tell you what you must change...
The answer for everyone is "I MUST CHANGE"
I must change because NOW it's Time to Change..

Yes, I am changing. 
I just realised that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

#LaunchPadJ2B - Quit Your Job & Start Your Business Series - 28

One of the major factors of being yourself is accepting who you are. There is nothing wrong with being different or unique. In fact, being unique and original is not something we should hide from, but it is something we should strive for.

It is very important to be yourself, at the same time we need to accept change as well. We don’t need to change who we are just learn new habits or skills that help us improve our day to day lives. Being ourselves is the key to happiness.

We always feel the pressure to fit in .There is always a gap between what we want to be and what the world wants us to be. We feel the need to be liked by everyone around us so indulge in activities that give us zero satisfaction/ happiness. To blend in with those around us without even realizing it, we change ourselves, our desires, and even our opinions to fit into whatever mold is required at the time. It leads to sacrificing ourselves and our dreams to please others, living their dreams at the expense of our own.

To find true happiness we must accept ourselves, live our own dreams, and be proud of what makes us unique instead of submitting to pressure. Happy people improve and create.

Entrepreneurs are people who lead the game .They are different and they want more. They prefer the challenges of life rather than the calculated risk. Don’t try to be a follower but be a leader. You are different for some special reasons. Don’t be like others, always be yourself. You have to accept yourself, and have the courage to keep moving forward. Entrepreneur is a market leader who develops the concept, brings in a new idea and does things differently. They improvise, accept change and are open minded people. They are good listeners and are definitely open to new ideas. Being different & being better at what they do makes them successful.

A glass half filled with water is a classic example.

You are unique, you think out of the box. You have a different approach to problems. You focus on the water that is filled in the glass .Others focus on the empty side of the glass. Perceptions are different but that is OK.You can look for solutions or a window of opportunity in a place where others can only look at the problems & get frustrated.

Be different, Be better & Be Successful.

“To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on.”
– Dave Pelzer

#LaunchPadJ2B - Quit Your Job & Start Your Business Series - 27

Sometimes life becomes hard, situations are tough. In those moments, your job is to Keep Moving Forward, in spite of all the obstacles and very soon you’ll see the window of opportunity to make you successful.

Life is not easy. Everyone has to go through their own struggles. Be it personal life or professional life there are tough situations to be faced, hard decisions to be made. Challenges in life that cannot be avoided or ignored. At times nothing seems to work in the right direction. We work on new ideas, new businesses or startups, work really hard to achieve our goals but for some reason don’t achieve the results as we would expect. We lose our jobs, businesses / start ups fail, financial losses, emotional struggles, life gets complicated. We have big goals in mind but don’t focus on the small steps that would lead to it. We all think of the big leap that would achieve our goal and have fears if we can do it.

In such a situation most people give up .They cannot find the strength within themselves or the motivation to move ahead in life.

My dear friends this is the point where we need to keep moving forward. Come what may we need to find the strength, the energy and motivation to move ahead in life even if it means taking one step at a time.

Believe in yourself.

Be consistent, be focused.

Make the move

Think how can we improve or make this work?

Hard work is the only way to success, there is no shortcut to it.

And soon you will see the roadblocks disappearing; you’ll find solutions you were looking for and opportunities waiting for you.

Success will be yours!

#LaunchPadJ2B - Quit Your Job & Start Your Business Series - 26

We all wait for the big opportunity to come our way, right circumstances to work on our ideas or the right time to start something new which mostly never happens. Instead of waiting for the big opportunity to come why don’t we think of working with what we have today and where we are right now?

As Jim Rohn said, “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.”

Time flies quickly and before we know it our life comes to an end without us achieving much. Nothing is achieved in life if we don’t act on our ideas. We need to dedicate some time each day to improve ourselves, to work on our ideas, and get solutions for our problems.

We need to stop procrastinating in order to be successful. Assess your plan, your resources, work around how we can achieve more with fewer resources. Look for cost effective plans, ask for help. Making the most of limited resources is a critical part of business success.

Success comes only when people take ownership of their lives, their decisions. Successful people have long term goals in their mind; they focus on how to achieve their goals. They know they have to work hard every day, improvise their plan as per the resources or finances available to them. They don’t stop at problems but look for solutions. They inculcate habits in themselves which would ultimately lead them to achieving their goals/ success. They purposefully try to stay away from activities which are unproductive.

Own your life, no one else will

Successful people train their minds to think positively, think about how to grow in a particular field, acquire knowledge, learn new skills, and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives. They invest a lot of time for their personal and professional growth.

Don’t worry about things you cannot control just focus on the ones you can. Sometimes it’s only your attitude towards something that can be controlled.

If we never try and utilize the opportunities that come our way, or allow our dreams to become realities, we will never achieve our true potential. And the world will never benefit from our achievements.

Don’t be afraid to fail and certainly don’t be afraid to succeed.

There are lot of examples in the world of people who had limited resources but with their dedication, hard work, creative problem solving and efforts have achieved success.

1. Richard Branson - business magnate, investor and philanthropist. In March 2017, Forbes listed Branson's estimated net worth at $5 billion.

2. Colonel Harlan Sanders
Died with an estimated net worth of 3.5 million dollars. Opened his first KFC franchise at the age of 64. His company, Kentucky Fried Chicken, has an estimated net worth of 15 billion dollars, as of 2013.

3. Walt Disney
Walt Disney was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon and philanthropist who had a net worth of $5 billion.

#LaunchPadJ2B - Quit Your Job & Start Your Business Series - 25

Progress is important for any business to scale up high into the next level. In order to make progress in our business further we need to take action daily. There needs to be clarity of vision, a clear picture of where we see ourselves in a couple of years, and then determine what we can do daily to get ourselves closer to our goals.

When you decide to develop and progress in your business, you must agree to a personal resolve to move forward regardless of the obstacles that may crop up (and they always come up).This may require strengthening your own mind to achieve higher levels of success. You should have a go getter attitude instead of just sit and think. A lot of entrepreneurs exhaust themselves by over-thinking every little detail, which always leads to becoming overwhelmed. Acting fast can get rid of stress, worry and anxiety and boost your business and your confidence. The best way to figure something out is to take action and make adjustments.

Instead of working on things which do not contribute positively to your business in terms of cash flow or value addition you should concentrate on work that contributes positively. Get away from time wasters like the internet or social media, smartphones. You need to learn the importance of taking action now instead of procrastination. Once you start implementing fast action, quick decisions into daily life then you will begin to see the positive changes in your business.

Make a list of goals you wish to accomplish. Break them down into smaller goals that can be worked upon in a small amount of time for e.g. daily goals or monthly goals. Focus on making progress every single day and make a habit of steadily working towards your goals. Before you know it, you would have achieved success.

Your business achievement will start with your decision to progress further.

Failing is common, raising is not.

He had applied for jobs but got rejected 30 times. He had applied to Harvard University but got rejected 10 times. He has experienced failure and rejection a lot of times yet today he is the richest man of China. He is a Self Made billionaire. 

Do we know who he is???

Jack Maa: - Founder & CEO of Alibaba group

Failing is common, raising is not! We are supposed to fail because failure is a stepping stone to success.

You have a vision for yourself, you have a dream & you see yourself successful. Looks like you have a plan for yourself...Well done that means you are a few steps ahead of the people around you. That’s good…

Just imagine if Sachin Tendulkar was afraid of not being able to score runs on the field, he would have never played .We on the other hand would not have enjoyed all the countless games. In other scenario, imagine if Steve Jobs was scared that people would not like his product, we would never have the IPhone.

Ask yourself this question

Do you want to be the person who fears failure and does not take any action to move ahead in life?


Do you want to be the person who fails in his attempt for success but does not give up, works hard & keeps moving ahead, raises himself from failure to achieve success?

Failure is not permanent, falling is not permanent. Get up and get going because this time you would be wiser, stronger and more giving.

People say that only 1% of populace go to the top or are successful. It does not mean you have 1% chance of being successful but it means you cannot behave like 99% of the rest of the group. You have to love success so much that it makes you to get up and go for it irrespective of the number of times that you have failed.

Each and every individual has experienced failure at some point of time in his life. Failing is common, raising is not. Thomas Edison was successful after 1000 attempts to make the light bulb .It is the attitude towards failure that matters. Some people might give up easily; they don’t have patience and persistence needed. Then there are those few who look at failure as learning or an experience. People think of obstacles in such a negative way but there is always some positive in every negative situation. We need to stop seeing failure as a bad thing & open our eyes and evaluate the situation. We need to learn from failing because we cannot move forward unless we have learnt the lesson life is teaching us. Learning from our mistakes is the key to success!

Every successful person in every field failed over and over again before succeeding in Life, Never ever give Up on your dreams, if others can do it you can do it too.

New Results Need New Actions

In this game of life I have never seen any person achieve success by just being interested in what they do. We live in a world full of opportunities. It is possible to achieve anything that we set our minds to, however we have to put in the efforts & work hard for it. Our dreams, goals & plans for life would be useless if we never take action .Just taking action is not sufficient, Strategic action is the key to success.

Its basic human nature to dream and envision grand future results for us. We tend to have expectations from ourselves and those around us. We should also be willing to work and take strategic actions to fulfill our dreams.

Common people see the objective they want to accomplish but fail to take action to achieve it. While there are many different factors involved, planning and action are the two keys that separate the elite from the average in any area of life. Some people have a propensity to see the end result, get excited about it, and then fizzle out with talking -- no action taken. The single greatest key to achieving success involves thorough planning and strategic action. Without them the chance of success is significantly lower.

Successful entrepreneurs know that success is not always a linear upward development and understand that obstacles arise. Those who are eventually successful do not become paralyzed by challenges but instead find a way to work around them. They don't sit still, but keep on moving.

People love those who wander from the rule be it the hero of a film who takes a risk or the villain who is different from the norm. The law of averages means the same action gives the same results so to have new results new actions are required. You need to think out of the box, and not just think but act on it as well.

Business success relies on good leadership. Leadership skills help you to make more efficient decisions, focus on your individual vision and work towards achieving goals of your business. Developing a business means identifying development opportunities and getting your sales plan right. Business development takes guts, patience & a strategic plan.

As a leader of your business development you have to lead from the front. Leaders from all over the world believe that success is achieved through “leading from the front " being an example for the team mates and the employee’s. Leaders have to take a proactive role in all aspects of business. You need to learn how to manage people & time and be a better leader.

You need to create a connection with your employees or team members. Work done by employees with trustworthy leaders is always the best. You can build up a rapport by listening and sharing personal experiences, telling stories about your personal life and getting to know your employees better for e.g. their likes or dislikes.

Business development for your company would mean looking for new business opportunities, coming up with a creative solution to market a new product in the existing markets. Responsibilities would include sourcing the deal, prioritizing the opportunities that you have closing & negotiating the contract, ultimately launching a product.

Business development would mean creating long term value for a business from its customers, stakeholders, partners, markets & relationships. Long term value means revenue, customer relationships, market expansion & creating sustainability.

They always fulfill their commitments and have business ethics. All these qualities have a great impact on your business. You are the leader of your business development so get clarity on every area of your business, customers and competition, and lead your team to success!

Every business faces risk at some point or another which hinders its success. Taking risk in business is imperative. Risk is defined as the probability of an untoward incident and its consequences. Risk management is the practice of using processes, methods and tools for managing these risks.

Running a business also means protecting your business, managing risks & having a risk management plan in place to face adverse situations. Managing risk requires identification of scenarios that may or may not happen & strategies that would be implemented in case of adverse situations. Businesses that calculate risks & protect their losses are better prepared for their future. A successful business identifies risks and has a cost effective way of dealing with such situations. They have a contingency plan in place.

Steps needed to protect your business would be:-

1. Identifying risks to the business
A business can face numerous risks such as financial risk, operational risk, compliance risk or strategic risk, health and safety risk or environmental risk. A lot of effort needs to be put in identifying the types of risk a business may face.

2. Analyzing the level of risks

To analyze the level of risk we need to work out the probability of the risk happening and the effect it would have on the business.

Level of risk = consequence x likelihood

Level of risk is often described as low, medium, high or very high. It should be analyzed in relation to what you are currently doing to control it. We need to keep in mind that control measures decrease the level of risk but do not eliminate it.

3. Evaluate the risks

After identifying the risk we need to rank them to evaluate. This can be done by studying the probability and consequence of each risk and segregating them as high, medium or low. Prioritizing risks allows us to direct our time and money towards the most important risks. We can put systems and controls in place to deal with the consequences of an event.

4. Contingency and Recovery plan

Prepare a recovery plan which will be decisive in helping your business survive if one of the risks that you've identified does occur. Risk management involves putting processes, methods and tools in place to deal with the consequence of events you have identified as major threats for your business. This could be something like setting aside capital to ease cash flow problems if they arise or ensuring efficient computer backup and IT support to deal with a systems failure.

We need to choose the right insurance to protect against losses. Insurance will not reduce the risk but it can be used as a financial tool to reduce losses due to the event. Be prepared to face the challenges of the future.

While taking risks calculate & protect your losses.
