This can´t be more wrong.
For sure there are some lucky people. But 90% of the time, that “luck” is because they have been getting the right preparation, creating the correct tools and using all this work to meet a great opportunity. If you want to see it another way, karma exists and you can fight it or use it on your own benefit.
If you are sure you want to become a super entrepreneur you have to learn how to transform karma into your friend. I have discovered a few ways of making this happen. From reading to connecting and creating a platform to promote yourself and your project.
I want to tell you about the 3 most effective ways I have been using. Lately, karma has been amazing with me.
1. Create a platform
It does not matter how much you know or how much experience you have. You are unique and have your own story. That is the starting point to create a platform, personal brand or general brand. Nobody has your perspective and if you start sharing that around the subject you like, then you are creating a valuable platform.
Nowadays there is nothing more easy than sharing. We have Facebook, Twitter, and. Youtube. Most importantly, you can create a blog in 3 minutes (remember that a blog is not a business). Start writing, recording videos, interview people that know more than you and share it with the world. The platform is your presentation card, make it an extension of yourself.
2. Connect, connect, connect
I can´t emphasize enough how important this is. Discover it for yourself. Once you have a platform start contacting people. Tell them about your platform and HOW YOU CAN HELP THEM. Another way to connect is to thank them for their work and tell them how it has helped you. Be creative and be remarkable. People will remember you if your message is clear. Make the impossible to meet someone you admire in person possible by setting up a Skype call.
But more important connect with people that are on the same path as you. Role models are important but the value of connecting with someone that is facing the same things as you is invaluable. You must read Srinivas Rao books about relationships and creating your Small Army. Remember that relationships are about creating value for the other person and really caring about them.
I think Karma loves people that travel. That is the only way I can explain how you can learn so much while you are traveling. Traveling can be an intense process, you are planning your trip, traveling, arriving, meeting people, and experiencing cultural shock. Everything is a learning and mind changing experience. Someone once said that you don´t travel to see new things you travel to get new eyes.
Every time you travel you must reflect – what did you learn? how could you do things better? what can you create after your trip? who can you help with the things you learn? This part is really important and once again share it!
Maximize your karma and become a remarkable entrepreneur by CREATING AND SHARING VALUE!
