Have a goal. Wake up earlier. Smile. Start to run. Make your breakfast. Travel. Cuddle your horse. Say “I adore you” to someone. Laugh. Discover something new about yourself & others. Sing. Dance. Own a business. Sleep well. Go to that specific place you desire. Be in peace with yourself. Take a picture on the top of that mountain.
No matter the kind of goal, have one. And fight for it. Wake up everyday with motivation, and fall asleep with a smile. Live your life to the fullest, every second. Do exactly what you want, and accomplish it. You are the master of your life. You decide. You create. So go. Never doubt of your capacities, and go.
The WORLD is increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more?
• How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturiser? You make someone worry about ageing. • How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about tax & immigration. • How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything. • How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws. • How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out. • How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind.
To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence. To be comfortable with our messy, human selves, would not be good for business.
Porn isn’t real sex. Cocaine isn’t real energy. Alcohol isn’t real courage. Gambling isn’t real investing. Caffeine isn’t real adrenaline. Video games aren’t real life. Social media isn’t really social. Business books aren’t real business.
WORK TOWARDS BECOMING A REAL YOU.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. The best heist movie trailer I bet, big fan of SNL skits. Watch it for fun.)
• These hard times, this pain, these lessons – one day they’ll be your strength, your awareness, your blessings. • Stop expecting honesty from people who lie to themselves. • You’ll never look good trying to make someone look bad. • Save your explanations for those that are determined to understand you. • Give your silence to those that are determined to misunderstand you. • Your life is too short to be unhappy 5 days a week in exchange for 2 days of freedom. • Don’t be upset from people you don’t respect. • Life is not tiring. Wanting life to be a certain way but not having the confidence to make it that way, is tiring. • Your consistent approach to anything you desire dictates your success in career, business & relationships.
I love the glow you get from MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS and LETTING GO OF NEGATIVITY. You no longer waste your time and energy stressing out or worrying about things that don’t evolve you. You start focusing your energy on getting better. You start feeling better. You start looking better. You even start attracting better. Everything changes. EVERYTHING CHANGES FOR THE BETTER.
(If you are living in UK, watch this without getting panicked. I mentioned this in few 2019 blog posts about how UK is moving towards an EMERGING MARKET ECONOMY status like some third world developing nations. Now that we know Liz Truss is the new Prime Minister, watch this 6 minutes video for more.)
Buy the black car, People will say you should’ve got blue. Start a business, People will say you should’ve got a job. Get married, People will say you picked the wrong partner. Learn a trade, People will say you should’ve done something else.
Everyone has an opinion about everything. You’ll go crazy trying to please everyone. Don’t even try. Listen, smile, agree. And then do whatever the fuck you were gonna do anyway.
Have a goal. Wake up earlier. Smile. Start running early morning. Make a new recipe. Buy a weighted blanket. Travel. Cuddle your puppy or horse. Say “I love you & I care for you” to someone. Laugh to dad jokes. Discover the universe. Sing your favourite song. Have your own blog/business/investments. Sleep well. Go to the specific place you desire. Be in peace with yourself. Take a picture on the top of a mountain. No matter the kind of goal, have one GOAL. And fight for it, keep fighting till you get it done.
Wake up everyday with motivation, and fall asleep with a smile. Live your life to the fullest, every second. Do exactly what you want, and accomplish it. You are the master of your life. You decide. You create. So go. Never doubt of your capacities, and go.
Start by doing 1 push up. Start by drinking 1 cup of water. Start by paying towards 1 debt. Start by saving your 1st grand. Start by reading 1 page. Start by writing 1 journal. Start by deleting 1 old contact. Start by walking 1 lap. Start by attending 1 productive get-together. Start today. Repeat tomorrow.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO ARE SUCCESSFUL, YOU WILL FIND THAT THEY AREN’T THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MOTIVATED, BUT HAVE CONSISTENCY IN THEIR MOTIVATION. -ARSENE WENGER.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I like interracial couples because of mixed Hindi+English language related tings, that’s a different story. But why i shared it; brown bro in UK who loves Google pixel & preaches it’s camera quality, uses O2 & Vodafone, FCUK cap/clothes, bargaining carrier plan for a discount because desi people get that. Bit too much of similar traits with TAP. People who still want to know why i prefer using Google pixel over iPhone as my daily driver; for photography the best smartphone camera is Google pixel. And once you start using Google assistant as your daily routine scheduler, you can’t go back to siri. Google assistant is just few thousand times better than siri. I have an iPhone too, just for facetime & company calls. I am team blue bubble since a long while, i understand it’s hard to exit that. I use 2 phones because i own a business.)
1. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present. 2. What others think of you is none of your business. 3. Time heals almost everything, give it time. 4. Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 5. Stop thinking too much, it’s alright not to know the answers. Answers will come to you when you least expect it. 6. No one is in charge of your happiness, except you. 7. Smile. You don’t own all the problems in the world. 8. Understand the difference between WANT & NEED. Follow what you feel.
My grandpa died before 4 years at the age of 97+. He lost memory during his last few days. But whenever he was able to recollect his thoughts & was able to understand what’s going on, he used to talk about his involvement in Mahatma Gandhi’s khadi movement during India’s freedom struggle. Khadi means hand woven cotton fabric. He used to preach few things till the day he was alive;
1. Saying/wishing/greeting RAM RAM is not a religious thing, even though LORD RAM is the highest celebrated deity in Hindu religion. It’s about seeing divine in other human life & exchanging equal amounts of respect for that reason.
2. The biggest sinners in this world go to church/temple/mosque very often. Because they have to keep reminding god to wash their sins.
3. 10% of your wealth/income must go towards DANA (in Sanskrit it means DONATION), donation towards helping underprivileged & upliftment of society.
Not a secret, i own a small health supplement business since September-2017. And now that business enjoys a loyal customer base because of good quality products & quick customer query resolution. With those fitness enthusiasts in mind, i started an athleisure clothing brand in August-2019.
Like every other human, i am not perfect & my business is also not perfect all the time. Especially the atheleisure clothing brand i am talking about, not talking about profit or loss. My operation is small and we never made a loss. I am talking about clothes not being perfect sometimes. While manufacturing/stitching/printing, in few cases there’s a misplaced logo or a packaging label mishap, a stitching at wrong part of the clothing material or short hoodie strings, so we reject few clothes while passing it through quality testing. But even those quality reject clothes are completely usable, sometimes even i use them as my layer-1 clothes during winter. Like previous year, this year too we will go to a nearby orphanage & a refugee shelter to donate some winter clothes/blanket/woolen socks. There’s an amazing feeling of fulfillment while giving it back. I am forever grateful to almighty for giving me little more than i can consume.
(In case anyone wants to join, i have updated the address in our CMU university group. Please don’t try to overcrowd the place, 12-13 people are enough. It bums my mood to see people roaming around without mask, so please wear a mask while coming.)
What is the point in being alive if you are not going to try for something? If you are not going to at least attempt to make your time here remarkable? Stop holding yourself back. Tell the person that makes your stomach ache with hope that every part of your heart is tender for them, even if you think you aren’t ready. Don’t just fantasize about your dream job, actively pursue it, and if that door is not open, knock it down. Dreaming about a new business, go for it & own yourself. Got a goal? GO, Fetch it. Buy the plane ticket, climb a mountain, swim to shred after an intense workout session, surf when it’s raining, pet your canadian warmblood horse like a sweet puppy, surprise your mates & university bitches with some butt naked snapchat streaks on a beach, let your friends tease you “Aquaman minus SUPERPOWERS”, jump the fence, kiss an angel, makeout in the middle of a concert, full throttle that AMG to 150mph cruising through Autobahn while touring cross-country with your bestfriend.
Make sure that you don’t allow your fear to hold you back. Instead, look your fear in the face and invite it to dinner, become it’s friend. Live alongside it, let it make you feel alive. Just choose impossibility. Choose risk. Choose making mistakes, new mistakes, and making memories, and making it up as you go. Just choose to embrace whatever time you do have here, stay consistent on your life path, because life is finite, and fragile, and it vanishes too quickly. Just make it worth it. Make it count. Life is fun, let it be.
I like meeting new people, it’s fun but i hardly take them seriously. Let’s say I like meeting new people, but i don’t like making new friends. Most people are inconsistent+liars which bums my mood, that’s just cheap in my eyes and i struggle to trust such morons. I already have little over a dozen amazing friends who are my friends since 14th century or past life. That’s the reason I never miss attention or affection. Remember: The only proof your people are real with you is whether they are consistent with their approach towards you. Rest others are there just for nothing – mental drain to be honest.
(Not a secret, i shoot my shots when she’s a peng ting. That’s the best part about being single.😜 There’s a party at Frank’s place next week. Shooting this song at my bestie DEMI, Amanda & Karo’s🍑.)
Next few lines are meant for the one who calls me SONNENPRINZ out of fun & adore. Sonnenprinz means SUN PRINCE in German. Meeting someone 7th time in 6 years, actually 4th time since May-2021. She drives 5 hours to drop me at airport & airport is just 30km away from my house.😂 I must agree that 45-minute drive from my house to airport is pure banter. I still don’t know what i am bringing to the table, but the vibe is 🔥🔥🔥🔥. I love it when a girl questions or corrects my knowledge on engineering & business. Basically i love it when someone proves me wrong. Conversations are healing & communication is a sexy thing.
If your body is telling you to avoid certain foods and eat more fruits and veggies, do it. If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it. If your heart is telling you to travel, explore a beautiful place, start a new project, start a business, spend more time in nature, take a break, read this book, & be with that person who vibes with you, just go for it.
Your higher self knows what’s best for you. So don’t ignore the messages. LEARN TO LISTEN YOURSELF.
Be HONEST, that’s the easiest way to earn respect in a relationship/business or any kind of equation in this world. No one will deny that honesty is essential. In fact, it’s been important throughout all of human history to gain someone’s respect. You must first gain their trust by being honest. Why would you respect or trust someone who’s known to cheat lie or steal! Dishonesty is not a good look in any setting, whether it’s with the cashier at the grocery store or a longtime business partner.
If you want to earn respect, you must always be honest. Successful people know that if the foundation of a relationship either personal or professional spilt a trust, they will have solid ground to stand on. If that ground is cracked with lies or is crumbling due to deceit, the relationship is doomed.
Once in a while one friend or another asks me this question: “Tap, what you do when you are stressed!!?”.
OK. This one has two solutions for me; 1. Figure out who/what caused stress & kill that reason behind it silently. 2. Lift weights, do some 200 push-ups, look at my imperfect 5-pack abs in mirror, talk to my PhD research associates to figure out who is running ahead of me, login to my amazon seller portal to see how many boxes of whey protein we sold today, then have a pint of my favourite low calorie sugarfree ice cream in sea salt caramel flavour while watching Tom and Jerry.
Two easy ways actually. Most of the time i prefer the 2nd one because murder is still illegal. In case i get the opportunity to kill someone without getting punished, i would love to kill my bestie bitch by leaving her inside a huge bucket in any snowy swedish village during 2070 winter. If you are one of my close friends, you already know i am a simple stupid sober sassy person who is unaware of all emotional melodramas. Nobody is big enough to hurt me or give me stress. The worst things a human can do is; LIE. Every liar falls in line with every negative prediction. And i bet, after a while they seem fun & funny because of their repetitive pattern of lying. Fuck fake goodness. Tappie loves real people with clean intentions & bad will always work if it’s real.
Sometimes my friends ask “How/why am i good for my business?” Answer: Not because i am super motivated or fully dedicated, but because i am excited, self aware, funny, i always keep on reminding myself that my desires are my purpose, which makes the business look good & grow, employees/workers work with a delightful smile. Reason behind all is my believe in material growth.
One thing you can never point out in me is “MY CONSISTENCY”. Let me answer “the HOW”. I learnt it from my WORKOUT. Following fitness as a lifestyle choice is the biggest DISCIPLINE. Do you know why a person who’s going to gym is going to gym every single day without missing it!? There is something called DOPAMINE which hits you right after every workout creating wonders in head, heart & mood. When your workout gives you results, you never want to lose the streak of getting better stronger sassier. During this corona situation the only thing i missed is going to gym. Yes i was doing some 2-300 push-ups & squats in my house, but that never helped my hunger to lift weights. As i mentioned “DOPAMINE”; when your efforts show results, it’s a bliss to do what you do. Condition: you have to be CONSISTENT towards your desires & goals whether it’s fitness, studies or business. Whoever said it, said it right “CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY”.
Gut feelings is something you should not ignore while making difficult decisions. People often tell you to just listen to your gut. We all have a sort of sixth sense and knowing what is right or wrong and whether or not the decision we are making is a good one. All of the information that you process subconsciously triggers a physical response that you shouldn’t ignore. These feelings are the most primal of impulses and evolutionary end. It’s hardwired into us and their main purpose is to protect us. It’s very important not to dismiss warning signs from your subconscious as it picks up much more about the environment around you than your conscious mind does and it can help you make better decisions. So here few examples on how to work on your feelings.
Being drawn to someone is common. There are positive gut instincts you should pay attention to. One of them is the urge to help another person. Even if there isn’t an obvious reason why someone would need your help. Your brain picks up on body language, tone and other indicators that can suggest the opposite. It doesn’t cost anything to ask someone if you can help them in some way. Besides it’s human instinct to help others and make a difference for someone if we can. Other times you may get the feeling that someone could just be the key to accomplishing some goal or dream. You have your gut tells you that this person will be important in your life whether it’s as a friend, romantic partner or business partner. Getting to know them could lead to an amazing opportunity. If you feel this pull towards someone, you should probably act on it & strike up a conversation and see where it leads.
Follow what you feel. (Said by my bestie bitch when i was going through a rough patch). Tap OUT..🤗
Business is not a game of money for me, i started with a purpose & i am loving the journey. Most people struggle to figure out priorities which results in a poor choice of living. There is no such mantra/shortcut to success. START SLOW & FINISH STRONG. Have little expectations from others & huge faith in yourself.
While building business my standard is customer’s preference, not the competitor’s product. Even while a pandemic is raving our world, I was lucky enough to grow throughout this year 2020 little stronger stable every single day. 2021 and it’s a long ride, i don’t have enemies but i have competitors. That’s all i can say about the reason “why i usually get bored of random people time after time & my contact block list keeps on increasing”. I have a small group of friends who keep pushing me to reach my higher self. When i say “my people”, i mean my people who are smart, caring, driven, funny & i swear i am sold. Life is fun, let it be.
I don’t believe in partnerships, strictly talking about work & money/business. Whatever i own in life fully belongs to me & this will never change. That’s the reason i hate unenthusiastic people who think everything will be served on plate without putting enough efforts. Again that’s the only differentiator of what kinda HUMAN BEING you are, what’s your actions towards what you want to achieve!!
If you truly want to achieve something, work your way out & stay away from those who can’t bring their A-game to the table. Unenthusiastic people are toxic for your growth.
Give your dreams a deadline, then name it a GOAL. Always worked on something my whole life, whilst following a significant day or time.
So many times this happens when I am busy with leisure time talks & something pops up in my head accidently. I have a weirdly active materialistic mindset which understands only one language of MONEY. No matter who agrees or not “YOUR MONEY DICTATES YOUR STATUS and your MORALS take you towards your best life”, I believe and agree these bold words. Click here: It’s time to cash this sweet sassy word “SUGARTITS” with a lingerie brand. I am already into athleisure clothing business, exploring how to move this idea further.
Every Saturday or Sunday I devote 25 minutes to schedule next month’s posts you see here everyday 7am & 7pm. My friends suggest “I should write more words to elaborate it further or something like an article”. My problem is “I don’t have that much patience or drive to write something more than 100-200 words without getting paid for it”.😜
Still I see few people appreciate what I write & I swear I adore all. My expertise is limited to fields of data analytics, making little money with my business & punish myself with 200 push-ups when I eat an extra slice of cheesecake. Yeah I bake amazing sugar free cheesecake & sourdough pizza every weekend. Appreciated.
I work as a data analytics professional & I also run a tiny health supplement business where i sell some athleisure clothing as well under my brand name in few e-commerce sites, because of my business I come in touch with different types of people from different regions/backgrounds. To be honest most people are not good with their ego & self-respect, people fail to understand the difference between both because of their insecurities. Sometimes it goes even more weird because there is MONEY involved. This is the story of other side where I feel other side is cringey or clingy just to get a bargain in a bulk order.
Story of my side is “The businessman part of me is nasty”, please don’t expect a gentle/sweet response if you are talking to me in between 11am-3pm. I just talk logic & numbers in that timeframe. A strong competitive mindset that I can’t leave aside which portrays my image as an angry stubborn rude TAP. The worst part is, I do this with a healthy happy funny mood. I still don’t know how/why my voice sounds so deep/grumpy during that specific time. Learning to be more calm & composed with time. I wish everyday not to hurt anyone with my words, but this happens once in a while. I still make things right before hitting bed. I can’t fall asleep with a thought of hurting someone.
Lesson for me today: There is no place for ARROGANCE & IGNORANCE in business. RESPECT THAT RESPECT YOU GET FROM OTHERS.
Business or any sort of investment is like watching a child/tree grow big & tall in front of your eyes with time. It has no short term benefits behind it. If you really want some quick excitement, you should book a cheap flight ticket to neighboring country & get on with it. Having a control over money is the first lesson of entering men’s world.
You don’t need to believe in Zodiac signs or Horoscope till your life gets involved with another person, name it a RELATIONSHIP/LOVE or even with BUSINESS/WORK SITUATIONS. You can be the strongest ever individual till someone becomes capable enough to explore/exploit you physically/emotionally & fucks your sanity. Zodiac sign pairs matter for a reason.
Just an example; Barack Obama is a Leo & Michelle Obama is Capricorn. That’s a POWER COUPLE, you know who’s the lion & who’s his queen in this relationship. Now towards current US president Donald Trump who’s a Gemini & Melania Trump who’s a Taurus, I will let you decide who’s the DICK & who’s PUSSY in this equation!!?😜
Don’t read/follow someone’s success story if you want to build a stronger stable business. Make sure you watch a story of failure everyday & eliminate that in you one by one. You will fail & that’s gonna push you towards a better tomorrow.
OK. Enough of this confusion. When your blood is connected to a land called INDIA; you only get two options for college, either you become a doctor or an engineer. I failed to get good ranks for medicines, so I did engineering & became an ENGINEER. Now don’t ask me why.
After that I did a job with an MNC for a year. Felt like I want something else. I had enthusiasm towards business skills, so desires pushed me for an MBA. Private education is all about money. You can say; I bought myself an MBA degree with adequate amount efforts/studies because I desperately wanted it. Now I am busy with business which is fulfilling my desires & helping me earn more than what I spend. Next step is little bigger than what I am, stop questioning & keep watching me.
Doesn’t matter you are in a relationship or not, there is always a journey which is just yours. Your career path, your business goals, your own hobbies; these are all yours which make you a better beautiful you.
Now if your love/relationship isn’t helping you grow towards a better you, then stop lying to yourself. We enter relationships with tons of TRUTH & LOYALITY to become a better version of ourselves. We do it for our own happiness. The other person is there for a push. We do the same for them as well. Emotional availability speaks when words fall short.
Till you discover your worth, your goals & life purpose; you can’t be in a relationship with anyone.
After you know WHO DO YOU LOVE, then make sure to find out WHY DO YOU LOVE as well. It’s needed for a long-term. You need a reason to be with someone. There is something you liked unique in your partner, or else why are you with him/her!!
Being in love with a bed-bug is hard no-matter how good is that money/boots/smile or sex. If a person isn’t driven, you can’t be with them on the longer run. A person without a goal is indecisive and they will only bring instability to your life.
Doesn’t matter which side you are in, try to be a better you with a motive. Motive/goal can be anything, being a better student/employee/business person whatever it is. First find your reason to strive/live, other side will celebrate you in LOVE.
The nature of NATURE is, it makes you older & wiser every next day. Wiser is welcome, older naaah.
What you can do is, work comfortably on your studies/job/business to make some money, join a gym or do little workout for that body/booty, eat food for your body and tongue both, follow your TRUTH to be confident & trustworthy, you have enough tools to reverse ageing & be young forever.
I see world/work/life/love/almost everything in 4 words; YES or NO & RIGHT or WRONG. Definitely not fast, but I take calculated decisions.
All because, I am an ENGINEER in terms of education. In terms of work, for sure I am a money minded dickhead or a reckless opportunistic business person. I move quickly towards something when I see value in it. If NO value, you can see me competing at a snail’s pace.🤪😜
