Business Talk+Life Talk
It is not easy-peasy to run a business. That is why you have to learn, relearn and never stop learning. Not only in executing a business, but also living your life. The fundamental is learning.
Many people are running their own business nowadays. Varies from freelance, entrepreneurship, startup, small business, medium enterprise until the massive business development such as big companies to multinational companies. There is no exceptional to learn from those who are experienced in the business field and you will definitely learn a lot from your own experience in dealing with your own business as time goes by.
This process involves business ideas, training and development, practice and business minded individuals to grow from zero to something relevant from time to time which lead to success. No business takes the easy ride to success unless it involves corruption, black money, cheat and lies and all the dirty things that we should not do to earn a blessed living.
Today's global economic issue, most people are not comfortable to work with bosses anymore and want to be their own boss due to their own personal reasons. Personally, I think it is good to have something extra for you to work out, doing business as such. However, not everyone could pull it off to a level we called success. Bear in mind, although you are working with people and have your own business or you don't work with people and only work for yourself, you should not be arrogant and look down on other people. Everyone is working for somebody even if you are doing your own business, you are still working for the people, with the people.
Success does not merely measured by money $$, position, followers, power and fame. It can be determined by how you change someone to betterment, several or many people/animals life or situation and the good things in life that we all should learn, give and honour.
To me that is a part of success-a complete one. Everyone has a different view on everything. As in my point of view, money is important because we need money to live in this world but it's never everything. It cannot be denied that we need money to live, to survive, to help others who need help and the list goes on.
Unfortunately, many people tend to forget once they have a lot of money. They tend to go further to earn rank, fame and power by destroying others well-being from personal to families and others while being so cruel and heartless. Then they forgot their main purpose in life, to live good, find the right path and help what they can and they should for the world in whole.
I am no angel. Yet, I'm trying to develop what I can to those who wants to learn. I want to learn as well and I will never want to stop learning. That is my duty to develop individuals who wants to strive and do good. I believed in this since I was a kid until this very day. Thanks to my mom and my late father who raised me and teach me about the real importance of money, love and life.
Over the years, I have been debating with friends and individuals that money is not everything and I am grateful that I still hold my principle until this day. I hope this will never change no matter where I go, who I'll be. Those who really know me, would understand this clearly. What I presented in classes, talks, debates, works, writing and sharing with people stays the same-how important is to not look at the value of money $$ solely but the real value of social entrepreneurship, charity and try to help yourself, others (people, animals, plants, the world) by giving a favor without hoping something in return. I have to say that this is very hard to do, but thank you to one of my 'Sifu' who teach me that with sincerity, you will be fine, you will see things clearly. You have to really do it with your heart and soul to feel the power of sincerity.
In this process, maybe most of the people you encounter will try to take advantage of your kindness, sincerity and virtues, however let karma and God handle them in the future. Perform your responsibility well with honour and dignity. It was never easy and will never be painless or trouble-free .
You must learn the power of leadership and psychology to assess people the right way. Never ever judge. If someone tries to hurt you, people you care and love and your journey of life more than once, step away from them because the second one or more is no longer a mistake but a choice. If they seek for forgiveness and completely repent, they will find a way back to you and the same goes to you.
If you are in a business line or dealing with people, never ever push people to purchase your product or promote your service to them until they lose their trust in you. Obviously you need to promote for your business to move forward. Despite, once you see that someone is reluctant in regards to your business no matter what you do, it means that particular individual is totally not interested with your products or services. They are many reasons for it, so relax and move on. Focus on those who engage and value you. Stop pushing the wrong people instead focus on the right one. With experience and knowledge, you will understand how to approach people the right way.
One of the crucial things that most inexperienced business people failed to do is how they talk, write and converse with others in any medium, real life, or the virtual world-the internet. They used inappropriate words and language when they talk and write or conveying a certain message. Some of them use all the beautiful words, but when you ask questions to them or reject their proposal, they start to bash you. Some can be so nice, but in the real world they totally hate you and slander you here and there. This is a really bad attitude. If you want to achieve real success in life, attitude is the key. If your attitude is down the drained, respect will never be yours. Reflect yourself, reflect the big A-Attitude.
For those business people who are struggling to keep your business on the line, remember to do good and be good. If people are being hard and harsh on you, ignore them. They are too jealous seeing and counting your achievements. Every single hard work is actually an achievement if it's good and there is no malicious and cruelty involved.
Be true to yourself, team, people, fans and your prospect. Don't go for the big money $$ but help what you can based on the things you delivered. Sometimes the least you can do is to share positive vibes, encouragement, motivate and make people happy and feel that they are worth in this world. Be sure that your goods or services benefits them and satisfy their needs. Make it safe, healthy and good in all ways.
You have to care no matter how hard things get because you are living and breathing to lead. They will be leaders and followers in life. That is life. Be a good leader or be a good follower or be both. The best is to be both and understands things in a wider scope, open mind and heart.
Respect is vital. You have to learn to respect people no matter who and where you are. Watch your language. Stop gossiping, spreading rumors, slandering and do harm to another being. Respect living things and the non-living things too. That's one of the key to respect others and be respected as well. Be good at the heart and act right.
Sometimes in the process in achieving success, there will be many obstacles and haters. There are people who will demotivate you, push you, ignore you, talk bad about you, slandering, underestimate you, bring you down, down and down.
Sometimes friends can simply not be friends and family can be torn apart. If you are doing good and the right way and people are doing this to you, don't worry. Put in mind, you have those people who love, care and appreciate you although they are plenty of this kind of individual in the world these days.
Remember those who stay beside you during your hard times, sadness, pain and in need of help. They are the people you should put near to your heart, mind and soul. Always grateful that you have them in life, even you only have one, or few-this is the diamond, they are the diamonds. Stop focusing on collecting stones until you forget the real diamonds in front of you-in your life.
The more you become better and achieved in your life, the more enemies you will create. That is life. Let the enemies be. Focus again on those who adore and admire your strength and beauty within. People who do not learn to value gems, they will be at loss, a terrible one.
