Don't React - Act!

I hope all of you had a fun Diwali. While usually I share a post for Diwali, this time me and the family had gone to Goa and I was far away from my laptop and in complete holiday mood (though I was happy to connect on Facebook) . Every year, while I love the festival of Diwali and its significance of the victory of good over evil, I have never enjoyed the pollution and the terrible sound fire crackers make. Those of you who know me for over 10 years, would know this about me.

I used to react by getting angry and upset when people burst bombs late in the night. This year I decided to not react, but act and went away on a small break to Goa with my family. We were on a pretty secluded beach far away from the noise, pollution and crackers. It was fun, as we lit diyas outside our room and also did our Diwali puja there.

While I may not have control over what everyone else does, I have complete control over what I do. Instead of reacting, if all we did was pause, think and ask ourselves "What's the best action I can take that will benefit me?" - we will come up with lots of interesting ideas and solutions.

Even in our relationships, at work or in business - we are faced with situations when the other person tells us something or doesn't do things the way we want them to do. While our first instinct is to react, if we simply pause and hold back and observe what is happening, we will be able to get much better results.

Many time, I pause and look at myself from the outside. The way I would look at a movie. And I watch this character I am playing of "Yogesh Chabria" - is this character doing the best that he can? Is he acting in the most incredible way possible? Is he doing things and taking actions that will help him achieve his goals? Is he doing things that will bring about a change in this world? Is he doing things to make the world a better place? Is he doing things that are in his best mental, emotional, physical, financial and spiritual interest?

These are questions I ask. And this is something everyone can do. The next time you are faced with a challenging situation - it could be in your relationship or at work or in college, simply observe yourself and notice if you are reacting or acting?

I also thank all of you for taking action and making Succeed The Happionaire Way  one of the hottest new books on Amazon and an instant bestseller even before it hits stores by pre-ordering your copies (in case you still haven't pre-ordered your copy - you can get yours here)

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Lots of smiles and love,

Yogesh Chabria

Super Excited to Share Succeed The Happionaire Way With You - Free Preview Copy!

I'm super excited to share Succeed The Happionaire Way with you! It's been an incredible experience writing this book and I really wouldn't have been able to write it if it wasn't for all the wonderful emails, messages and ideas you share with me. Your blessings, wishes, love and support are what truly drive me!

Our first book, Invest The Happionaire Way, came out exactly 10 years ago, when I was 23. A lot has changed since then, and yet the core philosophy of doing good, being happy, spreading joy and succeeding by using the power of knowledge continues to be the same and grows even more powerful. The power of investing in knowledge continues to give us the maximum returns in every area of our life!

Succeed The Happionaire Way is very very different from anything I have every written, because it isn't only about money and wealth creation but a lot more! I can keep telling you what the book is about, but instead of me telling you, I will simply share it with your for free so that you can experience it.

I'm so humbled and delighted by the initial reviews it has got! It's truly Divine Grace and I feel blessed and lucky.

Click here to read Succeed The Happionaire Way - Free Preview. You can also
pre-order Succeed the Happionaire Way on Amazon!

I look forward to hearing from you and I am sure you will achieve all your goals and dreams if you decide to take action this festive season!

Lots of smiles and love,

Let's Learn From Ravana This Dussehra

All over India we celebrate Dussehra today. Effigies of Ravana will be burnt - signifying the victory of good over evil.

The forces of good and evil are within us all. Each one of us has the power to be good or to give in to darkness. Let us learn from Ravana, a man blessed with all the knowledge in the world, and yet his arrogance and ego caused his downfall.

No matter how rich, powerful or knowledgeable we are - we should ensure the evils of arrogance and ego never infect us. The greatest people, companies, movie stars, politicians, dictators, CEOs and billionaires have suffered once arrogance and ego took control of them.

The power of humility is infinitely more powerful than arrogance and ego.

Let's celebrate this force. Wishing you a Very Happy Dussehra!

Lots of love and smiles,

Yogesh Chabria

How Much Did You Laugh Today?

There are many ways people define success. To each person success means a different thing. For me sometimes the simplest thing to do at the end of the day is to look at how I spent my day and how much fun I had.

Having fun and laughing is something that really makes me feel good. It also makes everyone around me feel good. When we are laughing we make our challenges a little easier. Everyone faces some challenge or the other, but once we start laughing and cracking jokes, the challenges become less scary. They become easier to handle.

I know every now and then, we get so caught up in things that we forget to laugh. But, it really is very simple to laugh. It really is very simple to connect with our true nature, which is always in a state of bliss. In order to laugh, all you need to do is start laughing, at first it seems odd, but then suddenly a moment comes when you burst out laughing.

No matter, who I am with, I always make sure we are laughing.

I know many times people are divided over issues like politics, religion, language and ideology. I prefer rising above all issues that divide people and humanity, and instead why not share things that unite us like love, peace, fun and laughter.

I do hope you have been laughing a lot and having fun!

(In case you haven't, which I think is unlikely since you are a fellow happionaire - here are a few things you can try:

1. Play a prank on someone. It could be anyone! I know it takes time to think up of pranks - but that's the fun part. And then tell me what prank you played. I love playing pranks!

2. Just start laughing - it will seem fake at first, but keep trying, you will eventually burst out laughing for real and make people around you laugh!

3. Play with a little baby - Gauri, my wife and me, now have a little 5 month old son -Samarvir, it's so much fun playing and laughing with a small baby!

4. Stop reading this and go and spend time with your family, friends and loved ones - I'm sure you will have lots of laughs!)

Lots of smiles and love,

Yogesh Chabria

Succeed The Happionaire Way - The Book Coming Soon!

I know, I have been quiet on the blog and apologies to all the journalists who have been trying to speak to me - though I have been having lots of fun conversations with all our friends and fellow Happionaires who are connected on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. I am happy to share, I have completed writing Succeed The Happionaire Way (and am free to speak more once again!).

Writing a book and completing it - needs a lot of focus and a large part of my time was focused on making sure it is the best and most helpful book that is fun, easy and simple to read. This is why my silence for sometime. I also thank you for the initial reviews of the preview. It felt humbling and I feel truly blessed to have your wonderful feedback.

Now that the book is complete, I will once again be free to share my ideas here on the blog and happy to share more with everyone.

Just the other day we did a fun photo shoot (you can get a sneak peak here), I will be sharing a few photos, would love to hear from you on which one would look the best on the book.

Here are the two book covers - which one do you like?

The one you select - will be the one that goes in print.

I once again thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart and feel truly humbled and blessed to be able to do what I truly love doing - sharing ideas that bring about real long term change. Without you this journey would not be possible. And of course I thank the Divine Force and the Universe for making this happen!

I will be sharing more and will also be sharing a free preview of the book with all of you! Also all those of you who want to review the book - write to us with your blog, website, Youtube Channel, Facebook link or Podcast - we would love to send you a special copy.

Look forward to hearing from you, keep smiling and spreading the love!

Smiles, love and hugs,

Yogesh Chabria

(P.S. - I am super excited to be sharing this with you and want to make sure we reach the maximum number of people - your ideas, suggestions and just sharing is most welcome!)
