There were two friends, Ramesh and Suresh, both of them studied in the same engineering college, both of them were a mediocre student and most of the time both of them got nearly about the same marks. In the campus interview, both of them got rejected and even after passing out the degree none of them became able to find a good job. Meanwhile, Ramesh went into depression, he became so frustrated with his career, he was feeling like he had completely wasted precious 4years of his life, his parents started to force him to get any job as soon as possible.

Depression, frustration plus parents forcing, finally ramesh decided to join in a job where the salary is only 10k rupees per month, the duty is weekly 6days and for 10hrs every day. Ramesh also did not like the work he has to do there. He thought getting a job will solve his all problems, but instead of that it actually increased his problems. Now a new frustration got added into his life, that was his job, as a result, his relationships got affected, his health became poor day by day, he became totally screwed up with his life. On the other hand, Suresh was doing something different, when Suresh got rejected from lots of interviews, instead of getting depressed he became happy, why?

Because now for him the job option was totally closed, but he used to believe in it very well that none of the experience in life is useless. So he thought, "let me think what I have learned on that 4 years of my college" "let me figure out what were the problems I had gone through those days", so he found out, there was a major problem in his hostel, that was about the availability of the required daily commodities, there was no single shop in his collage area, from where he could get all the necessary commodities, so he had to go to the 10 different shops, 

then he had to put those heavy bags on his soldier to bring them back to his hostel. So now he questioned himself, "now, can I find a solution to this problem? which me, myself had gone through" The first answer came into his mind was no, I don't know what could be the possible solution. But he didn't stop, after a few days finally, an idea came into his mind. He decided to create his own website, from where any student from his collage hostel will be able to order the needed necessary commodities and those will be delivered to them within 2hrs. maximum. He tied up with the local shopkeepers and brought the commodities from them in bulk rate. All of these were more easy for him because everyone in his hostel, his collage, the gateman, the shopkeepers all of them were already very well known to him, because he was there already for four years.


So he knew his market very well, than any other person. In only one year he covered up his own collage hostel, in the next year the whole collage campus area, and in between the next three years he covered up the nearest all collages campus area. So, within only five years he successfully builds up a business model. Then he went to some investment fund agencies and showed them his business model which was already successful, so the investors easily agreed to fund his business, day by day his business became bigger and finally within 10 years it became a million-dollar business company. So Ramesh and Suresh both of them were exactly in the same situation, but one ended up screwing his life and the other one became a successful millionaire businessman. So now let us discuss in brief what were the things that made ramesh a failure and Suresh a successful businessman.

1) Vision Ramesh's vision was very much limited, he was unable to think something different. From the beginning of engineering, he had set a fixed goal, that after engineering I have to get a job in that XYZ or ABC company, otherwise, I will be considered as a failure, which is called a narrow-minded approach. Whereas at the beginning Suresh also set a goal just like ramesh, that after engineering first I will try for getting a good job, but the difference was he was not stuck on it, when he became fail to get any job, he instantly move on, he didn't consider him as a failure like ramesh did. He told himself to let me see what are the other options, is there anything else that only I can do the best, so he got his answer, and that made him successful.

 2) Thinking The moment Ramesh became unable to crack in his campus interview, he started considering that his 4 years had been totally wasted, this negative thinking closed all the doors of possibilities for him at the very beginning, whereas in the same situation, Suresh became happy, he believed that there had to be at least something worthy that he had learned in this 4 years of his college, and eventually he figured it out. This positive thinking opened all the doors of possibilities for Suresh at the very beginning.

3) Risk Taking One of the biggest reason why ramesh never thought about his own business, was the risk. He considered doing a job is more secure than building own business. Ramesh was totally disconnected from the reality and was driven by this society. He didn't get that at this time, everything is uncertain, there is no security in anything, neither job nor the business. Because he didn't know in which office he will get a job, how will be his boss, how will be the other employees there, what if he gets fired? So not even the job is also a secure option. Additionally, in the case of the job, there will be less freedom, less love for the work, and less self-respect also.

So, trying to become free, trying to build something by own that is meaningful to myself, is that called risk? Or doing a work for the lifetime which I actually hate to do, is called risk? Ramesh wasn't clear about it, but Suresh was very clear about it. Suresh knows very well, the only thing that is secure and stable in this world, is that thing, which is continuously changing according with the rapid change in its environment.
