The Dream - Gurbaksh Chahal

  1. 1. Booklub : The Dream: How I Learned the Risks and Rewards of Entrepreneurship and Made Millions Gurbaksh Chahal (Ed. Palgrave Macmillan, 2008) //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Février 2013
  2. 2. Gurbaksh Chahal – Die Hard Entrepreneur ///////////////////// BOOKLUB SWITCH _ SEPT. 2013 The journey of an American Internet entrepreneur, philanthropist and writer.
  3. 3. Lessons learned from his entrepreunarial journey ///// BOOKLUB SWITCH _ SEPT. 2013 LISTEN TO YOUR HEART. We tend to do well at things we love, so find something you love! ADJUST YOUR ATTITUDE. You have to believe in youself, often to the point of madness. HIRE ROCK STARS AND THE SMARTEST PEOPLE. Find the right people for the right jobs and pay them what they’re worth. TRUST YOUR GUT. Some mysterious Inner You is trying to help by pointing you in the right direction. BE FRUGAL. The only person you need to impress is yourself and you’ll be impressed by success, not by a fancy office FORGET NOBLE MOTIVATIONS. It’s not about how to play the game, but about winning. FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU’RE GOOD AT. Very few of us are gifted, so we need to work with gifts we have. DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Before you start anything, make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into.
  4. 4. BOOKLUB SWITCH _ SEPT. 2013 DON’T EXPECT PERFECTION From yourself or others, but never stop striving for it and try to inspire others to strive for it too. OWN YOUR MISTAKES. Nobody wins when you start looking for someone to blame. Let it go. Keep moving. Forward movement is everything. DON’T DO ANYTHING BY HALF-MEASURES. Mediocrity is for losers. NEVER LOSE A SIGHT OF THE COMPETITION. Otherwise you’re not going to be on top forever. DON’T PROCRASTINATE. If you’re not hungry enough, you’re never going to get anywhere. LEARN TO LISTEN Even to the people you disagree with. Then process what you’ve heard and have the courage of your convictions. NEVER COMPROMISE YOUR MORALITY. We all need to live by a moral code. WATCH YOUR BACK. For every back, there is a knife… BE NICE TO PEOPLE ON THE WAY UP Because you will probably meet them on the way down. Lessons learned from his entrepreunarial journey /////
  5. 5. BOOKLUB SWITCH _ SEPT. 2013 EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED If you’re ready for anything, you’ll still be unpleasantly surprised – but at least you’ll get through it. GROW A THICK SKIN – A VERY THICK SKIN. People will question your ability to succeed and the loudest among them might make you doubt your onw talents. DON’T GET EMOTIONAL. Logic and emotion don’t mix. PICK YOUR BATTLES. The fighting never really ends. Don’t let the meaningless skirmishes sap your strength; you’re in this to win the war. ALWAYS NEGOCIATE FROM A POSITION OF STRENGTH. People want what they can’t have. Become the thing people want. PERCEPTION IS REALITY. What they see is more important than what is. Show them what they want to see and tell them what they want to hear. BE FEARLESS. If you’re afraid to fail you’ll never succeed. TAKE CHANCES Whitout risk, there is no rewards. Make sure it’s intelligent risk. BECOME UNSTOPPABLE. When you commit, you really have to commit. And don’t quit. Lessons learned from his entrepreunarial journey /////
  6. 6. BOOKLUB SWITCH _ SEPT. 2013 SUCCESS IS REALLY ABOUT MAKING IT HAPPEN. It’s about dreaming. It’s about finding that one thing you love above all others and then figuring out how to do it better than anyone else. Winning is about leaping out of bed every morning, excited about the day ahead. You will have bad days. There will be setbacks. You will have more the your fair share of failures. But at the end of the day, you pick yourself up and keep going. That’s the Big Secret of Life. YOU FALL DOWN, YOU GET UP. Lessons learned from his entrepreunarial journey /////
