What is it that you love to do?
Anything in which you find happiness?
Anything in which you find peace?
Anything in which you find satisfaction?
There’s no restrictions with what you can do or with what you should do – you should never ever settle!
Push beyond your limits – but, do the things you love.
Then, it doesn’t feel like work, it’s a purpose that you’re able to deliver on a daily basis – and there’s never a better feeling in life.
Why wouldn’t you want to do that?
If entrepreneurship is something that flows within you, then you wouldn’t want to do anything else; there is no backup.
There’s a certain aura of doing it on your own, no matter how small or big, that makes you want to do it even more. The vision, the passion, the energy, the struggles, the journey is so incredible; you just love it.
When you create your company, it becomes your baby, your child; you want to grow it, you want to nurture it and take care of it. The words may seem out of context, but it’s not, it’s the truth.
No matter how many backups you create, if entrepreneurship is within you, you’ll do whatever it takes, start ‘x’ number of companies until you make it, but you shall keep doing so. #Facts
There are two kinds of people,
- One who keep sleeping so they can dream more and,
- one who wake up and follow their dreams.
Every dream is achievable as long as it’s practical and you work towards it!
Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it!
Graduated in May 2015. Zazz Media started in December 2015. What happened in those six months?
The entrepreneurial spirit always existed within me. I knew; eventually, I’d build something – although, I didn’t possess the answers for the what, when and how.
Coming from our stressful education system, teaching us all but the same principles, those six tension-free months was a blessing! No responsibilities, no plans, no routine! Nothing valuable happened during that period. Although, in hindsight, I’m happy I took that decision because that brought me to where I am today!
Proceeding down this path gave me the push, the energy to accomplish something. That realisation was important!
It’s up to you, whether you’d like to take a break or not. However, remember this – If you can take a break, do it for yourself. Please don’t rush into decisions, because you got pressured into it. When that happens, you don’t make choices out of happiness.
#ThrowbackStory #FirstStartUp #2014
During college, back in 2014, specialising in entrepreneurship and simultaneously studying a photography course led me to start a production firm called Shreyan Rohit Productions.
0% professional + 5% personal experience – having just studied the basics. However, this profession had an energy/ an aura around it that created this hunger inside me to accomplish something, and right now itself. #2014Thoughts
Long story short, approached Shreyan Ghosh, a college acquaintance at the time – also, a skilled, knowledgeable photographer wanting to grow into this field – and asked whether he’d like to partner up for such an idea (of doing this professionally). At first, both of us were hesitant – since we didn’t know how to proceed or even if we got the project in hand, how would we execute it.
However, as they say, you can achieve anything, once you set your mind towards it. For us, we only wanted to start and experience this field’s professional aspect – with no end goals in mind.
Fast forward to making 15+ videos and photo shoots – 5+ clients – hiring editors and photographers to help along the projects – creating the brand design with no knowledge of its know-how. In the end, this was a fantastic experience altogether – full of struggles and learning.
Somehow, late 2014, both of us drifted regarding the professional shoots – focusing at the end of our college year and ultimately, it came to an end.
If I had to travel back in time and modify one element of this journey, I wouldn’t change anything, because I loved all of it – every lesson we learned – every downfall we faced – all the firsts, whether it was creating a logo or approaching a client or mailing an invoice.
Shreyan Rohit Productions, the end.
Big shoutout to @shreyantito who was a part of this journey, along with me – what started as approaching an acquaintance to become a business partner ended up with us becoming brothers for life.
Inspiration is not something you force upon someone; one attracts it when they need it. Meaning, only when you keep an open mindset, will you accept it and allow it to change your life.
When do you need Inspiration?
A. When you have a stagnant routine
・Without any value addition to your life.
・When you’re miserable with your everyday life.
This is the point when you look for inspiration. You desire a change in your life. You aspire to do what you love. When that happens, you’ll be content every minute of every day and not think regarding anything else.
B. When you want to grow/ expand your mindset
・When you’re performing fabulous, but you can do better. You’d like to improve.
・When you’re stuck in a specific point of your life.
This is the moment when you realise that you want a diversion in your thought process which will help you reach your destination. You want to improve in a better version of yourself.
C. When you want to learn
・You’ve limited knowledge. No matter how much you study and learn and experience, you still crave it more.
・You wish to discover more about your industry or other sectors of your interest.
This is the thought process when you’d like to learn more. You follow certain people, and you start listening to them. An endless process, one, out of which you’ll come out as a better person.
