It was lovely meeting fellow Happionaires at our program that happened last weekend at the Bombay Gymkhana organized by Quantum Dynamics. It was fun, we had some good laughs and gained some insight into looking at investing slightly differently. We had lots of interesting discussions, and to be honest besides sharing a few ideas of my own, I got to learn a lot more from all those had attended. I always believe that each one of us has an infinite amount of knowledge within us – we just are afraid to tap it. Investing, business and a lot of other things in life are all inborn. We all ‘know’ within us what is right and what is wrong.
We had a few Happionaires who had travelled from Pune, Surat as well as Dubai. It encourages us to go out and spread the message to more and more people. It is a very simply message, but at the same time very important and powerful. I request all those who had been a part of the program to share whatever they learnt with all those around them.
Also the few companies shared in the program, I would like to give it to all those of you who were able to figure it out and e-mail it. A fellow Happionaire, Kamal Barbaria, was fun and shared an interesting company for all of us to guess. The company happens to be in the agricultural sector – linked with micro-nutrients for plants. It has an excellent distribution network already in place and has prime land in areas of Mumbai. The existing distribution network restricts competition. Any guesses which company this is? (I have been doing some research on it myself!)
I’ll like to take some time out and meet more of you. Do let Quantum Dynamics know if you want them to organize something in your city too. I would love to see you.
A lot of people asked me what is being a Happionaire about. I don’t have any particular definition for it. It is like asking to define what is it to have wind blowing through your hair and face near the sea. Life can have no definition, it is just a wonderful experience. I thought I will share what the Happionaire experience is all about. Just a few words that are from my heart.
Once there was a small boy. He had a dream, he wanted to do something incredible. He wanted to do something that would change the world forever. Something that nobody else had ever done, something that he loved. Something his heart had always told him to do. He had this dream even before he went to school. Even before he was trained and taught by teachers. He knew he would do this. But then school happened. Studies happened, tuitions happened, he was taught that failing and making mistakes was wrong. He was forced to memorize things. He was forced to kill his creativity and desire to learn. He was forced to kill his dreams because everyone told him that he should do something that was ‘safe’ something that everyone else was doing. He was told not to think from his heart – because the real world doesn’t think from the heart.
He was forced to take up a job he didn’t believe in, follow orders and do things his heart didn’t want to. Tolerate 20 hour work days, live his life burdened with stress, anger and hate. He had never been encouraged to learn about money and finance and now the only thing he longed was for his monthly pay cheque. He spent it on things that didn’t make him happy. He lived a life for others. He lived a life that wasn’t his own. He started drinking and smoking, trying to forget his life.
Had he just listened to his heart. Had he just followed what his innocent, pure, filled with creativity mind and heart had told him as a child. Wouldn’t life be life today? It still isn’t late for him. He can start living once again. He can be what the child in him wants to be.
He can once again laugh, smile and do things he loves. He can stop constantly thinking about buying things he doesn’t need, he can stop living for others, he can start enjoying things he really wants. He can stop worrying about money and finance, because he has made the right decisions and if financially independent. He doesn’t have to be scared of anybody because he owes them anything. He lives free. He lives happy. He simplifies everything and isn’t afraid to make mistakes. He is finally living life.
He just has to dare. He just has to embrace a new way of life and thinking. That is what being a Happionaire is about. I welcome the world to being Happionaires!
Keep smiling and having fun!
Lots of Love,
