When things change inside you ..

We often look for external motivation for happiness and are mislead to believe you can get to internal happiness with external influences.

Not possible.

The real work starts within.

Even a rock will change its shape over time ..

Let Go!

Easy to say and REALLY hard to do. We tend to carry the heavy stuff much longer in life that we need it. For some, there is a sense of comfort in holding on and for others, there is no playbook on how to let go.

For me, my burden was my fuel. It pushed me harder than any external motivation but I never learned how to let it go.

Now, imagine you are holding on to all of these emotions .. and also imagine you are sinking in the ocean .. what will you let go immediately to survive. Start with those .. let go.

Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda

“Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda” .. if only I could smack these words out of you. These words give you permission to not do the hard work it takes to chase your dreams. It’s easier to just to tell yourself it wasn’t you. “Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda” puts the accountability for your results or lack of results on other people and/or other circumstances.
The BIGGEST difference is that the DO’ers, DO what it takes. They don’t only focus on the results but also on the process to get there.

My old basketball coach taught us that winning happens during the daily practice and in our minds .. long before we step on the court for the game. The result (win or loss) in most cases was already determined in preparation .. the game itself was just execution.
. .. commit to never saying “shoulda, woulda or coulda”

Simplicity one of the key ingredients to success.

Simplicity one of the key ingredients to success. When looking at your business or when looking to start a new business, focus on how you can simplify your message, product or service and then take it to market. “Go shorty, it’s your birthday”

Tag someone hustling on their dream business and let’s share local businesses looking for visibility.

Sharing is the best way to remove ignorance!

We talked about a lot of different topics and one of the questions from @hamzak got us talking but how we can start to share the culture and work on removing stereotypes, and cultural bias attached to young South Asians from within the community. Check out the conversation .. let me know what you think. Agree or disagree .. let’s keep talking.

Can’t sell a million records

Imagine if Jay listened to his uncle and didn’t sell a million records. What if he tried really hard and was just not that good in making music? The truth is that he is one of the greatest rappers alive .. and just like Jay did with his uncle, we all come across people who don’t believe in what we believe in. They can’t see the future like you can … and that is OK.

The best coaches and mentors still carry forward their fears, limitations and bias. It’s impossible not too. I am guilty of it too.

YOU have to believe in you first. YOU are the quarterback .. you have to make the plays.“Always believe you are great before anyone else does.”

Focus on your growth.

LOVE this message! Regardless of the business you are starting or growing ..
FOCUS ON YOUR GROWTH FIRST .. you can not lose. It’s permanent. It’s the real WIN .. .
