What industry or skill should I learn now that will be more valuable in 10 years than it is today?

Nothing.

The way world is moving at a pace and in a way, that you cannot predict what will be trending in next decade.

What i mean is the pace at which things are moving be it technology, economy, or trends? Earlier if something came it would stay for sometime and fade out slowly but after 10 years it will be erratic.

It might change in a few weeks as well. Then what you will do.

So i suggest, you be in such a zone that no matter what happens, whatever comes you are in a position to work with it.

Lift youself so much, that outside things do not matter.

For eg: Tell me is there anything more sophisticated than your body, mind.

So ensure your mind and body is at peak even for next 10 years.

Peak meaning not full of muscles & knowledge.

I mean a lively physical body and a happy mind.

Keep it simple coz the more things you get into things, its a trap you can’t come out if it.

I mean okay lets say future trends are Nanotechnology, Blockchain, Open Source, Cloud, AI, Robotics, Virtual Reality etc.

Say you prepared from today and after 10 years became expert at something futuristic. But if you are physically ill or not happy at mind. Yes, what then? Yes, imagine suddenly something unexpected happened and just before you start to reap rewards of your effort. You die then what?

Have ambitions but do not forget to be healthy and happy daily.

This means even if life doesn’t go as planned you must be healthy and happy.

Is this what we want when we achieve success as well right.

I say be it failure also no problems. Yes, its a fact not everyone can become successful right.

So what if you are one of the failures.

Get the point. One could die, life can trurn against you.

But nothing can take away your reaction to life. So be happy and healthy.

As i said there will never be anything more Sophisticated and Latest than your body and mind. Keep them in top form. No comprises.

And anyway what is the point if you already know what you will be doing in 10 years.

I mean tell me which is a better way. I say plan, but something that you will make you free from shackles of success.

Yes, what is point if your rich, success but can’t drop anything and have to run from pillar to post.

I know some people say i like it.

I do it for my life, country, people, my satisfaction.

See everything you say can be taken from you.

Your life – you gota accident, fell terminally ill, gone. Yes, some people will stil fight odds but most are gone.

Country, Parents, Family – no guarantee. Can we always be 24/7 behind them. Right now you are here, but entire something happens to the outside.

So you aim should simple be your aim & not entangle you.

Yes, even your aim/reputation should not become a baggage for you that when you want move again it doesn’t

How can I get a good job, good income, and good career at age 23? What should my goals be? What do I need to hit the upmost top end of the success stratosphere?

See first thing is success is a mindset.

It is not a goal we reach and we become happy.

Till date we have had so many successful people on this earth since time immemorial but then most of human species are still struggling to be happy. Right.

I mean imagine you become successful but you don’t have one single person standing with you.

Imagine you are successful but the entire surrounding you stay are full of people who are just rag pickers.

You get the picture what i am trying to say. Don’t get carried by the word success.

It’s like this. Say you achieved everything after years of hardwork.

But just when you start enjoying the fruits of your achievements, the very next day, we die. So you see success is not the ALL.

Yes, the point you are asking is not wrong, it is in fact in every human to be happy and it is this seeking that we are trying to quench.

Some call it success, some get it in addictions, some get it in money, some get in doing everything for their loved ones, some get it in just being themselves.

So your intentions are perfect for a young person. You are not interested in just being, born, earn and dying.

But all i am saying is success is not the way to go.
In the process if you get successful well and good, but remember being successful has its limitations as well.

Start seeking a mindset/path/whatever method where you feel successful irrespective of what the circumstances are.

See it’s like this. Even if humans don’t do anything, there is everything in nature available for us. Right. Then what is the point of being successful, the success what we want to do is useless.

Yes, everything is there is nature. Just think about it. Not a single thing is required. Not even internet or telephone. Human mind is not even being used at 7 percent and hope you know about telepathy, you don’t need a phone to speak to someone.
Isn’t it strange, not a single creature on this earth requires anything which is not available in nature. They will do just fine and they are doing fine. Right.

I mean did you know that if honeybees pollinate over 90 percent of the plant species on the earth. So if all the honey bees got extinct we will have nothing to eat in next 3 years. Yes, not a single plant will grow.

No birds, butterflies or other creatures can do this.

So you see, i am not saying don’t achieve or go behind things. But know the reality and limitations of what you are doing.

If there is a situation where you have to overcome the odds, defeat someone bad, please go ahead but don’t lose your peace of mind over it. Don’t think you failed, as i said there is not single use of humans on this earth.

Even if we go extinct right now, nothing changes on the earth. Think about it.

Success is a mindset. Be successful irrespective of what the circumstances are. If there are some benefits take it in your stride and share some if possible.

An ant is successful in its own way. Yes, if all the ants were even the size of cockroaches, they would ruling this planet right now.

Cockroaches were there with the dinosaurs, they will be here even after all humans have died and ozone layer has been punctured.

So now tell me who is successful.

Lion is the king of jungle but Elephants can anyday become king of jungle right. Think about it.

So, don’t think successful is only about being king of jungle.

What is the purpose of life? How to get a perfect life?

Let me cut the long story short.
Out of the 100 crop species that provide us with 90% of our food, 70% are pollinated by bees. It’s that simple.
Bees are the primary initiators of reproduction among plants, as they transfer pollen from the male stamens to the female pistils.

While bees are not the only pollinators we have (bats, birds, butterflies, and some flies can do this work, too), they’re by far the best creatures for the job. In part, this is because they need pollen to feed their larvae, so they’re biologically driven to gather the stuff. Other pollinators visit flowers only to suck nectar, and any pollen that sticks to them in the process is a happy accident.

“Additionally, most [bee] species are fuzzy, and those hairs attract pollen grains, making the bees even more likely to pollinate,”

Within just three months of our last bee dying off, producers would be facing record low harvest yields. In cities, grocers would be scrambling to explain to consumers why almond butter costs had tripled. Within six months, many farmers—especially small-scale operations—would likely face tough choices about converting their fields to wheat. By the end of the first year, “we’d have a very bland and boring diet.

Most importantly, a chain of reaction would have been set up which is irreversible. Not to forget we are already living in a world so soiled and toxic that we’d have much bigger problems.

Now coming to your point, even if the entire humans species is extinct right now, the earth will still go on minus all the pollution etc.
In fact the planet will become better right in a larger context.

So hope you got your answer.
The question is not about having purpose.
Why do we humans thing we are above the system, we are also part of a huge system, there is no special purpose.

We can’t run faster than dog, fly like a crow, fight like a lion, strong as an ant.
Yes, we do have some benefits but compared to these creatures there are lot of drawbacks we have right. So why do you want purpose in the first place, when we are not even the best species.

We are just better than some species.

In fact, after the world goes extinct, cockroaches will still roam the earth and they have been here since the dinosaurs.

It’s just that we have complicated, we have to earn money to eat food.
No other creature on the planet does this. Get it.
Yes, civilization has a come far way and things can’t be reversed. You have to go with flow.

But to answer your question, there is no specific purpose for humans.
You are free to do whatever you want.
Thing is whatever we do, we don’t realize that we are part of the system and we need keep this in mind before doing anything.

That’s why there is always seeking in almost every human being. What is my purpose? Because we are doing the wrong things.
We are not realizing that we are a cog in the wheel, we are not the wheel. Yes, to an extent we can understand the big picture but that is just part of the complete picture.

It’s like no matter how much you learn about life, earth, galaxy, spirituality, etc, it will still be drop in the ocean, like that.
As far as perfect life is concerned, again there is no such thing.

Just a example: Imagine you did all the things and became successful but just when you are about to enjoy the rewards of your success, you die. Not being negative.

All i am telling there is no purpose of life. You are free to what you want. But keep in mind the big picture that you are part of a bigger system. So do i need to say what not to do…now..if we use your common sense, we will know what to do?

Now coming to perfect life, as i said you have every right to get a perfect life but there is no guarantee you will enjoy it. So again, perfect life is a mindset.
There are people with all troubles and still happy and there are people who have everything and very miserable. Perfect life is a mindset. Dot.

What can entrepreneurs learn from professional sports persons?

Take the example of a cricket match or a badminton match or any sports for that matter. I am sure most of us who follow the sport have the ability to predict the game 7 out of 10 times correctly. However, when the same comes to our business or real life, most of the times, we somehow are dumbstruck, think a lot more, not sure etc.

So the next time you are in a business situation or for that matter any situation, see it as a cricket match or a badminton match and think what you would do to win that game. I am sure you would win 7 out of 10 situations. Dont worry about losing that one game a.k.a situation.

How is the career as an insurance agent in India?

I see why you are asking this question. There is a career for everything, we just need to choose the right career. Anways, coming to your question of scope as insurance agent, yes times are good and bad as well.

Good

  1. Indians are increasingly becoming financially sound and realize the importance of insurance. Google for insurance coverage of Indians and you will find that not even 30 percent of Indians are having insurance.
  2. The current Indian population has an average age of 25 which means most of them need to secure their future post marriage, aging parents, future commitments, kids education etc. So there is huge scope.

Bad

  1. Lot of policies to choose from.
  2. Agents are irritating, nothing against them but this is the general perception right.
  3. No money right now to buy policy. Indians still most of us don’t plan financially, like how we plan for a trip. Got the big picture. One unexpected untoward event and entire life is upside is down. I am not saying financially planned people are safe but they are better prepared. See its like most of us have vehicle insurance but life insurance, trust me…Majority of the people who own vehicle in India will have motor insurance but ask them about life insurance..etc…you will know..what i mean. And insurance is just one part of financial planning what about savings, retirement, medical insurance, emergency funds and finally investments to realize our financial goals..etc..forgot kids education. and list just goes on….but at least some of the basics we have to cover it…
  4. Renewal problem, customers ignore to renew the policy next year.
  5. Tough to get a customer India, it is built in most of us. Atleast that is what i noticed. In our country, we have this insecure feeling why should i buy from this agent, i will buy later or elsewhere. The biggest problem is selling the policy.I know this is not the answer you were expecting and the answer looks very generic. With all respect to your question, as i said it is not about insurance agent career is good or bad. I am saying there is scope for insurance in the first point itself. Matter close. So now you see what you can do. I just put some negatives as well, which most of us are aware for a balance.

     

    For this you have to find a solution…So you see, there is demand for insurance right, but then what is the problem in selling. Now its up to you whether you can find a solution to sell the policies as agent. Because even if say the solution, like say you joined a insurance company they will say sell, train you but end of the day you are the one who has to go on the field and sell..So now that you know what to do..it is upto you to HOW YOU DO…IT

Can I do journalism after HSEE?

Yes, you can.

You can do journalism degree. This degree will be in addition your qualification post HSEE.

You can do post graduation.

You can do a PG diploma full time or partime.

Or join a evening college.

Or join a media house and enrol for their certification or course. This is easiest, fastest, safest way. Plus you get paid as you do the course. Eg: Times of India has their own media course. Academically it mite not be equal to a degree. See both pros n cons n then choose.

Or directly start free lance, if media likes your stuff, your on. Nothing else required. Later a degree for name sake will do.

Or u can enrol any online journalism course as well.Or try a foreign university. Explore…

Or look for correspondence courses etc.

Options are plenty.

Heres a small suggestion – Gaining knowledge is important and do you really want to be journalist is more important.

Degree you can get somehow, dont worry. But decide what you want learn. Today you have option to be a journalist or even join a creative ad agency, join films, radio, website.

So think on this, what qualification you want, you will be more expert than me in finding on Google.

Most journalists or media people, actors, RJ, technicians, cameraman, editors, ..most people are not qualified media people. They are from other fields. You got what i am saying…degree u can get…dnt worry…if ur learning a lot with degree..nothing lyk it..but main aim are you learning…at least getting to know about the field you are going to spend the rest of ur life

If possible connect them with that expert and he can continue his learning.

If possible make sure each students gets what he’s looking for, give them all the options, so that they like something and do it.

Today I lost my self-control for the second time in my two years of college. It scared the hell out of me this time and I don’t want to see myself like that ever again. What are the ways to keep it in check?

Example:

See, it’s like, let it be however a big problem, if you know that if you press this button, it will solve the problem, what will you do?

In some cases you don’t know which button to press.
So you press the buttons for what you can?

Another Example: Say a person is addicted to drugs. Ask any drug addict, if i give a pill that will make him forget the addiction going forward, will he take it or NO.

TRUST ME, invariably sooner or later every drug addict will want that pill.
In this case, you just don’t know what to do.
But if you really dead sure like you can handle, solve or know what to do, then you would have done.

So do what you can with FULL CONVICTION and the whatever is the best you feel. Yes, whatever, you do must be option the best option.

Don’t worry if it turns out to be wrong or din’t come out as you expected.
That is not in your hand.

If your still not sure, consult a counsellor near your place. Then take a call on what needs to be done- best.

Or consult someone whom you will place a bet on your life, a well wisher, who is good at advice and will stand by you if you ask for help.

Self Control is not a stage we reach & stop.

It is evolution, you keep improving.

Say you had self control on anger for 10 issues, tomorrow you should have self control for 100 issues.

I feel sleepy all the time, I don’t feel the enthusiasm to do anything, I feel like I have given up on life, am I depressed?

First thing is take a aptitude and personality test online.
There are lot of free websites.

There is no right and wrong answer in the aptitude (skill test) and personality test.

It is just to find about your self. What comes naturally easy to you.
Some people get maths easily, some get language easily.
So don’t worry about giving right answer, just be like you are talking to your buddy.

Without any pressure to give right answer, just enjoy the test.
If in doubt take these tests few times.

You will find a pattern and you will know what you enjoy.
Some people will be good at everything.
Don’t worry.

That’s where the personality tests come.
Take the personality tests. This test will tell what kind of person you are.
What kind of environment you enjoy and what kind of people you like to hang out with.

Over a period of time your personality and skills might change but these tests help to start with clarity.
They give a clear idea in case your confused.
Now you will make proper choices about your studies and career and everything your life.

Atleast you will know how to approach going forward.
With time, sooner or later you will see that you will get to know what you are good at..
Very soon you will immerse your life in that.
Hardly takes 20 mins. Have Fun. Have a Good lyf.

With this kind of thoughts and actions, you will beyond happiness and sorrow in life.
In fact nothing will bother you. Neither Happiness or Tragedy, you will automatically what needs to be done.
Think about it.

I mean now you might a solve a problem, what about tomorrow.
There are things always waiting to happen in life.
It is part and parcel of life.

So be beyond problems and solutions.
Example:
See, it’s like, let it be however a big problem, if you know that if you press this button, it will solve the problem, what will you do?
In some cases you don’t which button to press.

So you press the buttons, what you can?
Don’t bother about the others. Sooner or later you will get better.
It’s like say I am addicted to drugs. Ask any drug addict, if i give a pill that will make him forget the addiction going forward, will he take it or NO.

TRUST ME, invariably sooner or later every drug addict will want that pill.
So, this is life, it is will be harsh and get worse as well, but you can be beyond all of them.

Consult a counselor near your place. Then take a call on what needs to be done- best.

Or consult someone whom you trust with your life, a well wisher, Grandpa, Elders etc. who is good at advice and will stand by you with their life you ask for help.

Remember both are important, the person whom you trust should be ready to stand by with life for you.

And you too should trust that person so much that you are willing to place a bet on your life trusting that person.

How can I cover up my study gap and ensure a bright future?

This is the problem we identify with the situation instead of knowing the source of problem.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma is one of the richest people in the world, with a net worth of over $36 billion according to Forbes. But there was a time when he couldn’t even get a job at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Here’s the full article

The early rejection taught him an important business lesson: “You have to get used to failure,” he says, speaking at the University of Nairobi.

After college, Ma applied for 30 jobs in his home city of Hangzhou, China. He was rejected from every one.

At KFC, 24 people applied for the job, says Ma, and while 23 were hired — he wasn’t one of them.

The same thing happened when he tried to be a cop. This time four of five applicants were hired, all except Ma.

Another time Ma lost out on a job to his own blood.

“My cousin and I waited for two hours [in a] long queue to be the waiter for the four star hotel in my city, on a very hot day,” he says. “My cousin’s score was much lower than mine, [but] he was accepted and I was rejected!”

A post shared by University of Nairobi (@universityofnairobi) on Jul 21, 2017,

Ma was even turned down by Harvard 10 times, he tells Charlie Rose in 2015.

“I told myself someday I should go teach there maybe,” he laughs.

Although he can joke about it now, Ma says the continued rejection was painful. But it prepared him for his entrepreneurial future.

“If you can not get used to failure — just like a boxer — if you can’t get used to [being] hit, how can you win?” he says to the audience in Nairobi.

The fortitude came in handy when he founded Chinese e-commerce site Alibaba in 1999. In the beginning, Ma heard “no” a lot.

“I remember year 2001, we went to raise some $5 million from venture capitalists in the USA and got rejected,” Ma tells Rose. Despite the setback, he didn’t stop. “I said we [will] come back raising a little bit more.”

Perhaps those VCs regret their decisions. Today, the company has a market cap of about $400 billion. When it went public 2014, it was the largest initial public offering ever.

Ma says he now passes around case studies about failure to colleagues at Alibaba, instead of reinforcing success.

“When you read too many successful stories, people go crazy,” he says during his talk in Nairobi. “They think ‘I can be successful.'”
But the truth is, says Ma, “When you share a lot of failure stories, you learn.”
So till the age of 30 he was nothing but a failure.
So, at the age of 31, Ma started his first internet company called “China Yellow Pages.” The company made around $800,000 in the three years it was in business.

And now the rest is history.
So the problem is not about the success or failure or filling the gap.
If you worry about gap, what will you do if there an other gap.

It is about the journey.
See say for example, you want to be a body builder, what gives you more happiness. Off course, the day you won.
But what about everyday when you wake up to prepare, excercise, eat and work out.

See this is what we are supposed to be in. In the journey, the zone where we are always looking out for something.
Then you will not have time to feel sorrow.
See for example, suddenly imagine you and your best buddies plan to go for 1 month trip. Got that feel.

I know life will be normal after the trip.
But what about the time during the trip.
So coming to your question, you are not enjoying your current journey, so choose a journey what you want.

It’s hard to believe because its simple.
But yes, in case you need to make a drastic changem, then do it.
don’t worry about failure or consequences.

If it was not Jack Ma, someone else would have been there, done that.
So if its not you, someone else would be there and take that.
So only thing what you can do give your self maximum chances to be there done that.

FAILURE is not a big deal. I mean you are saying like this. what if suddenly after you read this answer, the entire world is nuked. Got it.
Don’t think about the gap. Not being negative but just saying the big picture. Get it.

If you are in this kind of a journey then you will know when to take a gap and gap will not dictate your life. In fact, nothing will bother, neither failure nor success.

You will beyond success & failure.
