Why do we never have enough money?

Money

“I really need to start saving. By the middle of every month, my bank balance goes to zero” 

“My credit card always seems to be in negative balance. It’s a struggle to save any money in this city.” 

“Wow! I have sent so much in just a few days. The salary day is still more than 20 days away. I wonder how we will survive until then.” 

I am sure you all may have heard or exclaimed any of the above and more at different times of your life anywhere across the world. The cost of living in most of the big cities is definitely rising as the years pass by. Due to the economic slowdown in many parts of the planet, the salaries and the availability of jobs is surely not rising as fast. But is it still so difficult to save a ‘decent’ amount per month?

When she inflicted pain for love..

Love turned sour..

Love turned sour..

While they were far apart in terms of distance with both of them engrossed in studies on different continents separated by thousands of kilometers, their love was the one common thing which made their world go round. From WhatsApp chats to Skype calls, they always kept each other updated on their lives and everything which came with it be it happiness or despair.

This went on for a few years until he popped the question silently smiling to himself expecting her to say yes almost immediately. Both of them were now working and making their way up the career ladder slowly but surely. She was shocked and blatantly refused exclaiming that this was the time when she wanted to concentrate on her career and couldn’t think of anything else. While he was devastated, he was half expecting it considering their conversations had dramatically reduced since quite a while.

Is life only about getting rich & famous?

Humans have an unlimited number of wants, don’t they? Being rich and famous is one of the most common among them. But there is more to life than just earning lots of money.

A happy and loving family, good friends, a stable work – life balance, being passionate about one’s hobbies & interests and more – there’s so much that one can’t even imagine. Those whose only aim is to maximize their earnings without even thinking of ways to splurge them are never ever happy. They always dream of earning more and that more has no limit.

And therefore, it’s important to come out of your closed doors and see the world out there. Breathe out in the open air and start thinking of life in a way where money is just another part and not the ONLY part.

“Why don’t you sell all these showpieces? As it is, we are struggling with our lives. This is the least you can do.”

Laura, the youngest member of the Davis family loved making small showpieces out of crystals from the time she was a teenager. Though they weren’t really well off, Nick, her father always ensured that his daughter had all the tools to keep her hobby going.

Over the years, she had made showpieces of varied shapes, sizes and colours. It was just a hobby until the day Nick’s business crashed and he was forced to file for bankruptcy.

Creating a Startup Revolution..

What is Entrepreneurship?

What is Entrepreneurship?

Source: https://bradleysjohns.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/entrepreneur.jpg

I just completed watching the first 4 episodes of TVF Pitchers, a new Indian show which talks about the journey of 4 guys who leave their cushy jobs to dream of starting their own company. In a country like India, there are hundreds of individuals who start their own companies every single day. But in comparison, the success stories are miniscule in number.

From lack of funding to a poorly developed idea; from inability to hire the right set of people to lack of differentiation among the competitors in the market, there are a number of reasons behind every failure. But one of the most fundamental ones is the ease with which wannabe entrepreneurs give up after being rejected a couple of times.

As is always the case in life, not giving up is the mantra one needs to follow to avoid being JUST another entity creating a startup revolution. It’s not always about doing different things but instead doing the same things differently could be revolutionary as well.

Dear God,

Most of us tend to remember you only when we are in trouble. Whether it is praying the night before a major event in our lives like an exam, an interview, a marriage or ridiculing you if something doesn’t go as planned, we tend to voice our angst all the time. Very rarely do we stop t0 think that things may not actually be going right because of our mistakes in one way or the other. Moreover, when things do go right, so many of us actually take the credit rather than give it to you. By now, have you become thick skinned to such situations?

Offering to God..

Offering to God..

His only aim while working at Lenus Ltd was to travel abroad to a client location and earn as much as he could.

More than seeing the world, he knew that through this he would fulfill his primary aim of making and saving lots of money and help in treating his unwell mother. She had been diagnosed with cancer and the treatment required money which his family members tried to provide unsuccessfully.

When everything failed, he decided to go to the nearby temple to pay his obeisance to god and take the blessings.

He had heard that whoever came to the temple with faith, warmth and love in his heart, his visa was successfully processed and he went abroad to the location he wished for.

What is power? Some define it as having status and money. Some define it is having the ability to change policy decisions of countries. While many others define power as that thing which can change your life from one direction to an altogether different direction. Whatever it may be, everyone wants some level of power to be able to exert their influence over others. All of us want money, fame and status. But then, there are some who desire power even more than the others. And they try to do everything in their ability to milk their status. Whether it is greed or pursuing shady deals or even sexually abusing women, they make use of the power they have to get what they want.

Some do it to impress their bosses. Some do it to try to reach the highest ladder of their professional careers in the shortest possible time. Some do it because of peer pressure. But then, does becoming a workaholic help? Does it mean ‘Once a workaholic always a workaholic’? Does work – life balance even exist for a workaholic? Let’s check it out.

Every human has ‘n’ number of wants. If for one happiness is living in a decent 2BHK house with his family, for another, happiness is living a life of luxury in a 3-storey apartment. Happiness is something which every living thing strives for whether human or animal. One can’t expect to live a normal life without being happy. And so somewhere happiness is related to humans becoming greedy. I hear you ask why. Let me explain.
