On Failure

Everyone is happy here, cause we won. We all enjoyed it very much. We succeeded on something.

So what is it to be successful in Life? Does something has to certified for it to be claimed as success, and failure cause its uncertified or lets say certified failure. Hmm. Have you thought about it? Reason we feel successful and the reason we feel failure. But its not so easy cause what we think is dominated, most of the time, by what others think of it. So we call for majority to decide on our success. Ironically the majority wins, it is so called a Democratic View or Democratic ways. 

Is majority always the correct? But I don't want to discuss on that, what I am interested is in the fear behind being unsuccessful in life. The fear that always hunts us when we feel we are going down in life. I say, let us not fear. So easy isn't it? But it takes a hell lot of courage to think in this way, Or you can also say you have to be stupid enough not to know the risk. Well, which ever way we put it down, the fear is not going to be defined this way. But we can understand the origin of it and I really mean it.

Inorder to understand your fear, you first have to change your prespective on success. Well said. You may be shouting at me inside, "Perspective. Huh. Anything you don't understand , people say change your perspective. What the hell is this perspective anyway?" Well, I really cannot argue on that cause I can't. 

Since your childhood, we have been taught to look only from one way, the good way, the right way and the way everyone looks. I am not encouraging people to break the rules but yes I am encouraging people to break the usual trend in the thought process of human beings which is sometime so predictable.
Personally, perspective is all that matters to me. For me failure is a way of learning your limitations and building on your confidence and strength. When you fail, try to see the reason behind it. And try to be true to your-self why you failed. Now, this is very important. We are not true to ourself 90 percent of the time because, we need to answer to our ego. This EGO which resides in every one of us. This EGO is the god father of ourself. Once you become true to yourself, any failure that you come across, you can smile at it store it into your memory but don't hurt yourself in doing it. Just know that it is a fall among the millions that is going to come ahead. Just accept that, failure does not have any ends so, there is nothing to worry about it. Beileve me everyone of us know what is the right way, only thing is we bindfold ourself and lie to our EGO.

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :) But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared : Sale Person   : Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz? Bald Person : (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time. Sale Person    : Here sir, do you want to by a comb?  Bald Person  : Can't you

Fearful Consumer Market

Consumer market is something, I always feared. During my engineering days, I knew it was one area where I would not find myself working. I always feared the harsh competition of the market. I worried if ever, anything I made would sustain in the market. Or how people would react to it? You can say, I feared criticism and all the yap yap of group of people, who knows only how to suggest but not to act. Thus, I kept my interest into custom projects and not related to anything that a single consumer would use, rather it was something of community service. But with changing time, I knew I had to make a plunge into the ocean of consumer market and face the competition. "Be a man! Dude" That is what I would say to myself. I knew I couldn't swim, but I had to give it a try.  Journey into the consumer market is like that of 20000 Leagues Under The Sea . There are so many different kinds of creatures around to look and be fascinated. Some are small living in tiny groups. Some are
