The 3Es of Inspiration

The 3Es of Inspiration

• How do you find the perfect inspiration? – The 3Es •
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
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.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• EXPLORE
Explore different people in your field, concerning the knowledge you seek.

You know what you want; there are experts out there spreading the real message.

Experiment different people’s learnings, check out whom you align with (that matters), and learn everything you want. It’s all up to you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• ENSURE
Ensure you observe the right kind of people because they’ll change your mindset, your process, your perspective and it could turn out badly too.

As mentioned above, you need to watch, learn and listen to people whom you align with;
Are their intentions clear with their content?
Are your thought-processes the same?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• EXECUTE
Execute, irrespective of the results – only when you try and do, will this inspiration make sense.

If you sit around, motivated and not take any meaningful action, then isn’t it a probable waste of time?

“You only live once? False.
You live every day. You only die once.”

If you think about the past, then you’d regret it. If you think about the future, then you’d always be anxious.

Consistency is Key

Consistency is Key

At every level of business, you need consistency at a certain level, before you move on to the next step.

Consistency is vital when it comes to running a business.

An entrepreneur would imagine a certain level of business growth for his business to run successfully; however, at the same time, one also needs to be consistent with their execution.

You might shoot for the stars, but you must first reach the roof of your building. #ConsistencyIsKey

Who are the Joneses and why you should avoid them?

Who are the Joneses?
“Keeping up with the Joneses is an idiom in many parts of the English-speaking world referring to the comparison to one’s neighbour as a benchmark for social class or the accumulation of material goods. To fail to “Keep up with the Joneses” is perceived as demonstrating socio-economic or cultural inferiority.” #Wikipedia
//
Consciously or sub-consciously, all of us are trying to keep up with the “Joneses”. Now is the time we realise the mistakes we’ve been making! It shouldn’t matter to you what the others are doing if you are satisfied with your everyday life! We fall for worldly possessions because we see someone else accomplish something and now we want the same.

Someone else means your friends, your colleagues, and even those you follow on social media. The current trend is tied in with posting every expensive stuff you buy or do on social media. Now more than ever, it’s about telling others what you are doing rather than for your self-interest!

Ask yourself three questions the next time you do anything,
1. Am I buying this product/service because of self-interest?
2. Is this bringing value to me?
3. Do you care about other’s opinions?

Achieve stuff for yourself and not for others! Think about it and STOP NOW! The only loss is yours and not anyone else’s.

Choose the right path for yourself, because a little push can guide you towards the direction you were looking for all along!

You Matter.

Yes, you do. You’re here for a reason. You may not know it yet, but the journey has just started! You have time to figure everything out. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Are you living for the Weekends?

Are you living for the Weekends?

There’s a mindset ingrained in us since childhood, about working Monday to Friday and then enjoying the weekends!

Everyone hates Mondays and calls it the ‘Monday Blues’! Come Wednesday; people start talking about their Friday and Saturday Night plans. Why?
There’s no harm to enjoy the day off but first, live each day to its fullest. Maximise your potential for that particular day, and when the time comes, you cool it off!

Bars and clubs out there have started exploiting this weekend mindset and provide you with mid-week and Friday night offers. Falling into their traps, you spend thousands of hard-earned bucks on just three-four hours worth of satisfaction and luxury, only to do it the next week again. Moreover, what are you achieving out of it?

Think about it from the long-term perspective. Does that activity bring any value addition to your life? People have their own choices, but at the same time, enjoy your other days too instead of wasting them on something you don’t love; only to wait for the weekends and curse Monday yet again.

Do what you love every day, rather than waiting for the Fridays and Saturdays.

Weekends are a boon to us! How about productively executing it to achieve your goals? Work on your personal development, act on those goals we’ve been trying to accomplish, finish your side hustle project! These points only matter when you know your vision!

In the end, it’s your choice! #LiveEachDay

Frustrating Days at Work?

Everyone has stressful and frustrating days at work, although, there’s a catch!

When you’re passionate about your work, then those days don’t worry you as much, and at the same time, you know it will improve from there on!

The opportunities are endless today; anyone can pursue their interests in any manner they want!

It’s about self-education and self-learning, understanding from your own mistakes!

Inspiring the Millennials and the Gen-Z

Inspiring the Millennials and the Gen-Z

• With 440 million millennials in India (defined as those born after 1982), making up a third of the population and 46 per cent of the country’s workforce, according to a report by Morgan Stanley and,
• India’s Gen Z population (defined as those born after 1996) set to hit 472 million this year,
our vision of Zazzpreneurs is to provide all of you with the knowledge and the tools to pursue your passions and dreams.

We’ve initially started as a podcast, interviewing the do-ers and showcasing their journey, their inspiration and their struggles. We believe that through this, one might get an understanding of the sector they’re interested in and would also know about the opportunities available.

At the same time, this is going to grow much further; however, for that to happen, we need your support!

When do you need Inspiration?

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.

Are you in your Comfort Zone?

All good things take place outside our comfort zone.

If you want to transform/ improve your life,
If you have a macro goal to achieve and you can’t progress,
If you’re troubled by the daily circumstances of your life,
The answer is, ‘To get yourself out of this comfort zone‘.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ve created this stable world for yourself, where everything is going the same way, with no growth and no improvement.

To grow, or rather, improve as a better version of yourself, you need to escape that safe place. The grass is greener on the other side!

Every day, every month and every year, the smallest amount of value that you can provide to yourself, helps in upgrading to a better version of yourself.

What about Today?

What about Today?

Regretting the past? Focusing on the future?
However, what about today?

Without conquering today, you will probably regret the past, or you won’t achieve the future goal! Why? Because we don’t live in the present.

Ask yourself again; what about today and re-think your steps!

Don’t think much. Just do what makes you happy.

If you’re confident of your decisions, then even if you fail, you would have no regrets.

The “Perfect” Scenario

The “Perfect” Scenario

Nothing is Perfect, and it will never be! Imperfections make us who we are! It applies to our life, personal and professional, work, relationships, everything else too.

You cannot chase after perfection, because it doesn’t exist.

As much as it applies to the macro situations in your life, it also refers to the tiniest day-to-day elements as well.

You can only accomplish something when it seems acceptable to you. Not when the time is right, or when you have to do it (external pressure), or when you feel its perfect enough to execute.

Kindness towards Everyone

“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.” – Roy T. Bennett

“When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world.” – Harold Kushner

  • With no judgement towards others in your mind,
  • With an intent to provide value,
  • With a kind feeling towards everyone,

Your perspective changes!

You see your general surroundings in a better manner! In these situations, you have no other expectations, but to provide value!

That feeling is indescribable! Start showing kindness towards others by thoughts or deed! If you believe in ‘karma‘, then you should also think that the universe will repay you somehow, sooner or later! ❤️

Why do you compare?

Why do people compare their lives, especially their achievements with everyone around them, takes my breath away. No one would compare their struggles or learning with anyone else.

What joy do people gain, by comparing their successes with others?
Everyone has their own timeline! You know the best outcome for yourself! You know your desires!

Everyone comparing their journey with others don’t know the behind-the-scenes of your life, your journey, your hustle and your struggles.

Happiness should be the ultimate goal for yourself and the others around you; life would seem better that way!

Only when said, do people understand “comparisons” is negative for yourself and doesn’t provide any value to you.

How to motivate yourself on a daily basis?

How to motivate yourself on a daily basis?

Can you put in the same efforts and work with the same positive mindset towards your goals, every day? Sometimes, we don’t feel that push! There are inconsistent days, and during that time, we want to proceed with our day and move on to the next one, hoping for a more positive day with more accomplishments.

So, how do you stay motivated daily?

Here are a few pointers, which have helped me and could help you too!

  1. Have a macro goal in your mind; what do you want to achieve? That goal firstly should motivate you enough to push you a macro level. However, what about the micro situation, day-to-day?
  2. Reverse-engineer that goal into smaller goals, the more achievable targets, set for a yearly – monthly – weekly – daily basis.
  3. Write down your goals every day. Journalize it.
  4. Write down the tasks for the day beforehand. Either the night before or early morning, before you start your day. You now have the motivation to complete those tasks and check them off.
  5. After this, we still tend to bounce off track, so to keep yourself in check, you should surround yourself with daily inspirational material, wallpapers, social media accounts that you’re following, apps on your phone, people that you talk/meet.
  6. Most importantly, discipline is vital. Discipline keeps you in check, makes you complete all your tasks, enables you to push yourself towards your goals, and creates time from all your daily chores for your productive work.

Do you have an idea?

Believe it or not, ideas are easy; what matters is the following,

  • What is your USP?
  • Is the plan sustainable?
  • Are you thinking from the long-term perspective or just turning a quick buck around?
  • What are your intentions?

Knowing these answers will help you reverse-engineer your idea’s potential and whether you should proceed with it.

All you need to do is, mix it with passion and execution, and you’re all set.

Problems.

In this social media era, where it’s about the “image“, people have these perceptions, looking at other accounts that how perfect or rather, glamorous the other people’s lives are.

We assume that they don’t have problems in their lives.

Everyone has problems. Micro issues, macro dilemmas, they all exist.

One cannot have the context of another person’s life, how they live, what makes them happy, and yet, everyone compares their journey with others.

This is the reasons behind the constant statement, ‘Focus on Yourself‘ because everything can seem shiny when we see only one side of the coin.

The First Step?

The First Step?

The first step towards changing/ improving your

・perspective on happiness

You’re one step away from changing your life, and you don’t even know it yet.

Travel is the Best Medicine.

Would you

  • like to take a break from your everyday life, or want to figure out the answers in your life?
  • Would you like to move away from the chaos, or like some adventure in your life?
  • Would you like to explore new opportunities or seek out new ideas in your life?

Travel is the best investment in your life that makes you more productive. More productive in your life, your mindset, your thoughts, it makes everything clearer.

Often, people say – “This place is too expensive” or “This is a huge investment”. Travel need not be international; it can be anything – a one day trip/ a weekend getaway or a whole week off – whatever suits you. Travelling somewhere is more important.
Don’t we have the same 24 Hours in a Day?

Don’t we have the same 24 Hours in a Day?

In a typical scenario, for most people, out of the 24 hours every day, you usually work for 8-9 hours, and you sleep for 7-8 hours. For arguments’ sake, let’s add another 2 hours for your breakfast/ lunch and dinner.

In this extreme scenario, which isn’t the same for all, there’s still another 6 hours left for productive use.

During discussions, the topic tends to sway towards, ‘I had work‘ and ‘I didn’t get time‘. However, when you manage your time accurately, you’ve all the time in the world.

Either for your side hustle, either for your personal development, there’s always this extra set of hours which we tend to ignore.

Let’s apply all the hours you’re awake for, in the best possible manner.

Breakfast: Yay or Nay?

I think it’s essential to start the day with a proper breakfast.

Before I answer the ‘Why?’, all of those ‘breakfast-skippers‘ should make a resolution, to start the day only when you’ve had breakfast – and then begin with the rest of your daily activities.

It takes a sheer determination to initiate this habit, and if you’re not, then it’s just the excuses you’re making to avoid it.

Here’s the ‘Why’

  • It provides the fuel in your body – which in turn improves your concentration and productivity for the day.
  • Eating a nutritious breakfast keeps you in check – physically and mentally.
  • It sets the right appetite for the day, when you’ve eaten the proper meals, then you don’t tend to rely on junk food since you’ll feel the hunger at the appropriate times only.
  • Keeping your body hungry until lunch also changes your moods and behaviour – makes you short-tempered at times.
  • If you’re skipping breakfast to lose weight, then this concerns you – “You are trying to lose weight since months, but the weighing scale hasn’t budged even one mark backwards. Why? It’s because your body metabolism is going down instead of increasing. Staying hungry doesn’t make you lose. Eating healthy makes it possible.”

All stats aside, breakfasts are the best, aesthetically delectable. How can one miss the joy of parathas, sandwiches, omelettes, pancakes, waffles, milkshakes? It’s the best of the best.

Without a doubt, once you set your mind and form the habit, then you will never say the line – “I didn’t have time for breakfast.” It’s an excuse – which will surely have a long-term impact, if not short-term. Think about 10/20/30 years down the line, and make that decision right now.

Make this day the best Monday of your life.

Make this day the best Monday of your life.

Dictate these words to your mind, ‘Today will be the best Monday of my Life‘ and let that inner voice of yours repeat it, until your sub-conscious mind understands it too.

Are we living for the Future?

We continuously focus on how our future will look like, and our efforts toll up for our post-retirement.

However, what about today? The present. We have one life, and we have no idea how tomorrow is going to be! So why not utilize the time we have to chase our dreams and pursue our passion or exploring life or discovering and learning new skills and interests. Living a better version of our life should be our focus.

Focus on your Strengths!

Instead of focusing on
– what others are doing, or
– what the hot trends are, or
– what your weaknesses are,

Focus on your Strengths.

They will help you win the game. Usually, our strengths are something we love, so why not achieve something that plays on it. We’d be good at what we do, and be happy doing so!

Create a SWOT chart which states your strengths and weaknesses and the chances and risks you see for yourself.

Based on that, it’ll give you a clearer idea of your life and help you guide yourself towards a better future.

Travel: An Inspiration or just Leisure?

For most people, travel is enjoying life; taking a break from their usual routine and mostly, for leisure. All of this is true!
However, redefining its purpose can magnificently change your mindset over life. Let me explain!

“There is no man who is more complete than the one who travels a lot. He changed twenty times the way he thinks and his outlook on life.”

One, travel gives you exposure. Do you want to limit yourself to the attractions out there or explore the culture and food and the people of that place and extend the horizons of your mindset? That learning improves your mindset and tells you more about their thought processes, their way of living; how you can implement such points in your own life.

Secondly, apart from the exposure and the learning, there’s also the time and money management aspects too! Sounds intense, correct?
On every trip of yours, you plan out the entire day. However, have you wondered, how many people implement those same skills in their daily lives? Same logic applies to the money management aspect as well.

Apart from the points mentioned above, being outside your comfort zone is the most significant advantage of your journey. Doing stuff spontaneously that you wouldn’t explore back home when you’re just focusing on your work.

Wherever you go, proceed with all your heart! 💙

The Power of One

The Power of One

・ONE decision, which might transform your life.
・ONE step, which will produce a different life path for you.
・ONE positive thought, which will provide you with the confidence to act on your goals.
・ONE friend to guide, who can’t take that leap forward.
・ONE act of kindness, which will provoke you to accomplish more.
・ONE day to act upon, which ultimately becomes your Day One.

It all begins with ONE.


You have ONE Life. Now is a perfect time – to take yourself out of your comfort zone and do stuff you never thought you would.

Achieving your Dreams?

There are two kinds of people,
1. One who keep sleeping so they can dream more and,
2. 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!
