Part 8 oF Four Years On – Four years on, what is ahead?

As we celebrate the fourth anniversary of Nishe, here is the last piece in our series on entrepreneurship - "Four years on"

We celebrate the official fourth anniversary of Nishe today. Four adventurous, exciting, eventful years. Four years that have shaped our direction, our character, our culture, our soul.

So what is ahead of Nishe?

What is ahead of me?

 

“You will become very rich.”

 

While having lunch with a few friends several years ago (in fact, exactly 6 years ago on this day), a friend started reading our palms for fun. He looked at my palm and said to me: “(Provided you work hard), you are going to be extremely rich.”

“Wow, how rich?” I asked.

“Very rich” he said.

“Still, how rich is very rich? Millions? Billions? What are we talking about?” I persisted.

“How rich is very rich is purely based on each person’s perspective.” He responded. “Some people may think they are not rich even with millions or billions, others may need very little to feel rich!”

I have spent countless hours reflecting on the beauty of that simple answer. And on my own perspective on richness.

It took me a long time to eventually conclude that for me, rich means those who give the most, not those who take the most.

Give, but do it sensibly.

So, am I rich?

Not rich enough. There is still a long long way to go.

And what is ahead of me?

My simple answer is – I don’t know. I am enjoying the journey. I don’t know where it will take me.

 

“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.” ~ Roy Bennet

 

I am a curious person. I enjoy experimenting. I enjoy learning. I enjoy new experiences. I enjoy adventures. I enjoy stretching myself. I have no qualms about working hard. I have no problems about accepting if I made a mistake and correcting my course of action. And I usually have no difficulty in saying ‘no’ if I am convinced I have to.

I have a broad vision – I want to be rich! There are certain principles that guide my vision. There are many forms the vision can take. There are many paths that can take me to the vision.

I keep my mind open. I keep my eyes open. For opportunities. For Challenges.

For paths to make me rich. To make Nishe rich.

Until then….

Cheers!
