Professionalism! How we misunderstood the Philosophy of our work life?
Only Amateurs complain about being unemployed. They blame the Economy, Country or the University from where they get the degree. You have to make yourself capable enough for getting a job.
Think of it as tough love . . . for yourself. Whether an artist, writer or business person you want to be.
My Motto for Life:
I am the one who sees things differently. I’m not fund of rules, I have no respect for the status-quo and you can quote me, disagree or vilify me but the only thing you can’t do is to ignore me because I change things and this alone is only specter that pushes the human race forward. Self-made man take actions when all others are out there Partying.
Strategy of Nurturing the Entrepreneur within you!
In our world of in action, over-promising and under-delivering every second a man seems to claim himself an entrepreneur. That’s why there is difference between those who are wishing to be an Entrepreneur and those who take actions. You need a job experience to start any business, not the money but skills and exposure to working life and here is my part-time job starting from tomorrow and I haven’t finished my degree yet!
1-Get a Job!
Finally, I can finally say I have got a job before finishing my degree in a Multi-national Company. I was never one of those who wait until they finish their studies and start hunting jobs. Wasting their time and energy sitting at homes because of sheer laziness and unprofessional attitude.
2-Build your own thing!
I have created a blog! not for money but for myself to keep on writing and also chasing my dream of becoming a writer by writing books. I have a plan to start my own company for that very reason I have choose my current job!
I have turn pro by reading books which means I have defeated the resistance as “Steven Pressfield” wrote in the book “War of Art”. Bestselling novelist Steven Pressfield identifies the enemy that every one of us must face, outlines a battle plan to conquer this internal foe, then pinpoints just how to achieve the greatest success.
“Reading books makes you better”
- Why read “War of Art” by Steven Pressfield!
Our lives are caught in between the struggle to meet the daily ends meet! Most of us don’t love our jobs but focused on the money it provide that is what kills all the creative passion within us.
That is why there are only a few capitalists in every society which has billions of monthly income and amateurs tend to work for them. As Pressfield wrote:
” How can we avoid the roadblocks of any creative endeavor—be it starting up a dream business venture, writing a novel, or painting a masterpiece?
Why not work for yourself instead of someone else. In words of “Steve jobs”
“We live very limited life, life could be much broader because everything you see around you call life was made up by people who were no smarter than you! you can change it, you can influence, build your own things that other people can use. To shake off this notion that life is just there and you just gonna live it. “No” First embrace it, change it, prove it make your mark upon it. Once you learn that your never gona be same again.
You cannot put your soul into work if you don’t love and you cannot love your job because of its salary but finding what you love to do
Once you discover that then you need this golden rule I have mentioned below!
The 10,000 hours rule
“Malcolm Gladwell” Wrote an amazing book with the title as “Outliers” in which he mentions the 10,000 hour rule. It sates that for the success talent alone is not enough handwork and opportunists paved the way, he further puts example of Bill joy, john Lennon and Bill gates who work so hard that they spend all the required time to learn the necessary skills before starting their companies or bands.
Work each day. Put your time on it. If you Fail then try again but never give up no matter how hard it takes to achieve success
I’m writing three books!
Pro-activity is this. I’m studying MBA along with a 5 hour job. I read about 5 books daily, I write blogs and also running a Facebook page and I contribute 5000 words to each of my short stories. How I’m managing all this.
Fuel for burning the desire of success I have posted a Note in my room as a prayer to myself before starting a day:
To say to each and every distraction, to every person who would happily derails me! “This day is mine not yours”.
That’s where professionalism come, no matter how bad is the day, how I’m feeling I took the laptop and start writing. “I don’t sleep because my dreams are bigger than my sleep as “Alon Musk” put it.
Turn pro! Take actions that is the goal of this blog!
There is no greater satisfaction than being a self-made man. Take action!
