Failure Stories Are More Important Than Successful Ones

We are living in a society where success stories are glorified and failure stories are horrified. Isn’t it so? But believe me it’s terrible. We need to break this system. I will tell you why? Let’s have an analogy.
Suppose you are at the START point in the above picture. Now your destination is the END point. So you will be successful when you will reach the END point in the picture. Now if I tell you some success stories or events it will tell you about the END point. So you will get an idea about END point only. I’m not telling that it’s not required. But listening success stories means knowing the END point – the destination. That’s required only once to get the idea of END point. But the main effort is in the meanwhile i.e the road – the smooth – the rough – the anything possible road. As this road is not a straight line joining the START and END point. It’s a totally unpredictable, random road full of chaos. Like in the picture you can see different points in the road like A, B,…

Successful Examples: Cloud, API, Google, Open Source, WordPress…….Aren't they?? Empower people: Don’t think about business – think about the empowerment of people. People is not for business, …

Social Entrepreneurship Ideas

Today I was traveling in a local train in India. In this time I experienced, I felt, I realized a lot more than when I tried to check internet for startup ideas. Most of these ideas may be categorized as social entrepreneurship. I cannot help me but mentioning some of them here. Platform for Local and Poor Artists: During this travel my mind was captivated by the amazing flute playing by a beggar. So I was thinking why aren’t we creating a platform for these local poor artists who have talents in different fields and publishing their work through Youtube, Blog, Website and any other thing to make money from their work so that we can stop them to beg by giving money from here and also entrepreneurs can earn some bucks. Education for Poor Children: It’s one of the greatest pain when I see small childs are begging in the train, public place. It’s not the solution to give them money or food instantly as it’s not only temporary but also a positive reinforcement for their begging i.e. to enc…
