You might have seen the board "Driving School" on cars. What is a driving school? Its a place where we go to learn driving. They might have helped us get a drivers license - but the real learning must have come when we took the automobile out on road alone, heard all the shouting and honking of other vehicles and we really sweated it out.
When we hear such rejections and shouting, we make a choice - either to stop driving or to learn the trade. This is why many licensed people out there sit at home.
We are fortunate to have an academic qualification. The moment we think of our degree, we say "Thanks to the lovely friend of mine, to help me by showing the answers..." We might have taken the degree, but are we really educated?
This habit of getting things done through shortcut slowly spreads into the business world, for people who step into the shoes of an Entrepreneur - expects results to come overnight. The first question they ask is there a shortcut to become rich?
Just like many licensed people sit at home, many entrepreneurs also give up and sit at home. But the people that matter are the ones who were out there to hear all the NO's, refusals, rejections and all that takes to become successful.
The most horrifying part for any human being is to hear refusals, that’s because refusals are something that creates inferiority complexes. People who wish to make a difference should come out of that nutshell and exploit themselves to get the things done.
Things are changing today at the speed of light; people are running around crazy to make more and more money to buy lifestyle. But the fact is 95% of all these people are looking for a shortcut to make money. They keep their eyes are ears open to take up anything that creates them money without putting in effort.
Just like the licensed people sitting at home, one of these days this 95% population is going to sit at home. The people, who run the show, are the ones who are thoroughly prepared.
Now what is that will make you run the show: -
1. Know where to put the effort. There is no point in working hard at JOB – there is a limit to which your income will rise (ask your director/manager their salary package).
2. Keep your eyes and ears open - opportunity is knocking you everyday.
3. Learn your strengths and weaknesses – you need to better yourselves before you better your work.
4. By far – the highest income-earning people in world today are business class people, try to have a mentor from this quad.
5. Once you are focussed – be all out and do all that takes to become successful. There is nothing called as second best – you need to become the top performer.
The people who sit at home after failing from businesses, what you suppose they do “they start a new business venture and fail in that too”, they keep doing this again and again till they learn the trick – ALL OUT AND HARD WORK –COME WHAT MAY!

If I give you 3 apples, its only because I had 3 or more apples with me. Now I will not be able to give you 3 apples if I have none. The same is true with all things in this world – you can only give something to someone – if you have plenty of it.
Now its interesting to spend some time with a good friend, we cannot forget how they make us feel happy. The happiness you receive was a part of the happiness that was actually given to you by your friend. If your friend was not happy – you neither would have been one and never would you have spent time with him.
Nothing can be created, everything can be changed to one form or other – cannot we apply this law here, sure we can. The law of heat transfer also states – heat flows from a hotter body to a colder one. Just like happiness flows from a person who is happier to the one who is less happy.
Lets think about the realism this concept has – if someone gives you an advice or mentors you, it might be because he has went through the pros and cons and is helping you out. And usually we mistake him to be giving us a one sided opinion.
What if your boss is frustrating you? Is it because you are incapable or is it because the boss got frustrated? May be because your incapability/inefficiency fueled a chemical reaction in your boss’s mind to become frustrated. Now the change of state is for the boss – as long as you don’t become receptive to it - you cannot be frustrated.
Now we just discovered an interesting filter to sort out almost all negative emotions and feelings that we face day-day. We can actually put a halt to other people’s anger, frustration, fury, and jealousy by just not being receptive. As long as we are not receptive they cannot give it to us. Listen to all harsh words showered on you like a kid looking at a flower.
Similarly, you can only give what you have, you cannot give love if your mind is full of jealousy, you cannot give motivation if you are not self driven and obviously you cannot give advices without being “feel, felt, found”.
The best thing that you can give today is Information – its not time, money or any other aspects. The more you share information, the more you will grow, because your learning is going to come that way. When the number of transactions of information increases – that decides the state of money. This is why a rumor about a bank can crash it to rags, and good information can pump up millions for a company.
The more informed you are, the more the money will flow through you – the more you become rich. Get plugged to the information revolution and build out a fortune for you!

In all our prior discussions, we have consistently been trying to correlate the human mind and it’s behavior to the objects/particles, guided by the Laws of Science, and it’s various phenomena. Our effort to apply Newton’s & Darwin’s laws to the human mind has gained some momentum. We now have made enough observations, to believe that most Laws of Science, be it physics; chemistry or biology, were framed by studying the human mind and its behavioral patterns.
The human mind in itself is the biggest discovery on the planet. A glance through history, will tell us that never has been so much effort put in to learn about the human mind until the last 50 years.
Humans started discovering all outer things, even before knowing the true inner things. Unbelievable but true. Someone once said, that we are not even using 90% of our brain capacity in our whole lifetime.
Just imagine, if we could create wonders with the 10% usage, what could be the result with 50% or 65% or 80% usage of our central powerhouse.
The real outer world is a reflection of our inner world, what we see outside is merely what we want to see when we look into ourselves. Literally all discoveries can be attributed to this fact. If people invented stuffs we use daily, it was because they looked into themselves and found it in their mind and later brought it out to the real world.
Slowly but gradually scientists, met physicists, empathyists, and psychologists, who then went on to learn about human behaviors and their guiding patterns.
Just for an example, the third law of Newtonian motion states “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. Let’s see what its humane epitome is – “Every single effort we take has multiple results of magnitude way greater than the effort”
Actually the Newtonian law is a subset of the mental law, it surely does look similar – but it’s not same. The laws of the mind actually is universal, all other laws are a subset of these. Lets analyze, “Every effort we take brings with it a fruit we see, it also brings in stuffs we thought was never there”.
If we sow a seed of mango, expecting it to become a mango tree to give more mangoes – that’s the first result. Now there are things that came along that we never expected, say the tree gave us shade, the twigs lighted the stove, the branches made us furniture etc.. Same is the case with human effort.
We almost get disappointed when we are not getting the result we should have when we have put in the desired amount of effort. This law will guide you. All the pain you take today will surely bring in more fruits than you expect.
Think like, there is some magic, when you put 1 time effort you get 10 results of 10 times magnitude after 10 times of passage of time. Now will that stop you or help you put the required effort for your personal well being.
Sometimes 10 rupees tomorrow may be highly valuable than 5 rupees today. That’s why people are ready to starve today to get their favorite meal tomorrow.That’s why the saying goes “When you contribute to prosperity, you prosper in turn”. That’s why people who keep service in their minds and put in effort today– become wealthy, healthy, maintain good relations, and grow personally and as a leader with time….
