A lot of people are living in the past;
A lot of people are wondering why things are not working;
A lot of people are thinking about their lonely childhood;
A lot of people are blaming their society, their families or their spouses for the recent disasters they have been experiencing …
A lot of people are living in the future;
A lot of people are searching for the heaven;
A lot of people are worrying what their tomorrow will look like;
A lot of people are doing research to find out whether there’s a life after death …
The real problem is not whether there’s a life after death;
but whether you’re alive before you’re dead!
A lot of people are living dead;
If you are too then it’d be wise to feel sad.
But it would be wiser to feel sad for just a few moments.
Because things happen in this world because of actions.
Actions of yours or someone else’s.
For actions to happen, your belief systems play a significant part. Because before taking any action, we tend to validate whether that particular action is appropriate or not… but the appropriation of action is subjective, nothing more and nothing less.
So, you have an opportunity that you can cause (create) the situations for your life.
It is not guaranteed that you will find success in this path but it is a guarantee that you won’t find regrets.
Know that life experiences do not just happen; they are made.
You can shower your life with golden ornaments and choose to become a jade!
Has Indian startup eco-system seen a better initiative than this? Startup India Standup India?

More Info on Startup India Standup India Initiative
With this initiative, I visualize that the Indian youth will get better at creating more rather than complying and consuming.
Still today, many smart grads think that since they’ve finished their degree of education, they should get a higher paying job if they “comply” to the set standards and commonly accepted norms. Not an effective strategy in 2016. A better way is to create something that only you can create. Be a Linchpin!
Why it is a better way?
Because you will be the first in your own creation. Rather than worrying about getting chosen, you will be able to choose!
Is it a silver bullet?
No, it is not and I am sure this initiative will pass through iterations and improvements in its due course but this is the nature of any new creation … and guess what, effective startup founders are comfortable dealing with uncomfortable situations with ease. Be one.
Opportunity is to focus less on compliance and more on creation … create something today. Let us Start-Up India!
