rahul kuntala quotes

An athlete participated in a 100 meter race in the Under 17 age category.

He would always finish in the top 3.

This went on for a year.

Then he decided to take part in the Under 21 category, as he thought he was better than the others in the previous category.

Only this time he finished in the last spot in the first six races.

But one thing happened.

His speed was better than ever.

This story teaches us a lesson.

If you want to be better and smarter, spend time with people who are better and smarter than you. You will feel inferior at first, but gradually you will improve and become a version of yourself you could only dream of at one point.

Spend time and make friends with people who are smarter and better than you, that’s how you grow BIG!

Hurting others come back to you a 1000 fold

One night a snake while it was looking for food, entered a carpenter’s workshop.

As it crawled to the corner, it went through a saw and hurt itself a little bit. At that time he turned and bit the saw, and biting the saw, he hurt himself badly in the mouth.

Then, not understanding what was happening to him and thinking that saw was attacking him, he decided to roll around the saw as if wanting to suffocate him with his whole body, and shaking with all his strength. It was so, unfortunately, the snake ended up being killed by the saw.

Sometimes in trying to hurt others, we only hurt ourselves.

In life, sometimes it is better to ignore few situations, people and misdeeds. Because the consequences can be irreversible and catastrophic.

The lesson?

It is always better to act in love even if it costs a lot, in the face of hate or idle words! If karma is on your side, you will see all your enemies fall and swallow their own words.

Why should we read books?

There is this conversation between John Snow and Tyrion Lannister in the Game of Thrones series.

John Snow: Why do you read so much?

why should you read books

Tyrion Lannister: Look at me and tell me what you see.

got quotes

J.S.: Is this a trick?

T.L.: What you see is dwarf. If I’d be born peasant they might have left me out in the woods to die. Alas, I was born a Lannister of Casterly Rock. Things are expected of me. My father was the hand of the king for 20 years.

J.S.: Until your brother killed that king.

T.L.: Yes, until my brother killed him. Life is full of these little ironies. My sister married the new king, and my repulsive nephew will be the king after him. I must do my part for the honour of my house. Wouldn’t you agree? But how? Well, my brother has his sword and I have my mind and a mind needs books like sword needs a whetstone. That’s why I read so much, John snow.

That’s why you should read more books!

How to Earn 3 Lakhs Every Month?

If you read every single word written on this page, you’ll find ways to make 3 lakhs every single month.

Deal?

Let’s get started!

I’ve a confession to make: I make a ton of money every single week (I don’t save much though).

I work online. I’m a digital marketer.

Whatever I earned until now after completing my graduation in computer science, I made it all through online. I never made even a penny outside of digital marketing.

If you’re curious about how I earn money from online, my major income sources are;

  • Affiliate marketing
  • Digital marketing consultation (online one on one)
  • Freelancing
  • Making money from niche websites and so on

Still most people (even my family or gf) don’t know how much I really make every month.

The reason is: I keep few things discrete. ONLY my bankers know how much I make every month 😉

But here’s the thing: I make enough money to easily buy an iPhone X thrice every month and a Royal Enfield Classic 350 twice a month.

There you go! I just revealed how much approximately I make in a month 😉

Go figure it out.

That being said, if you’re a BIG thinker like me who wants to earn 3 lakhs or even more every single month, I’ve few tips for you.

Tip #1: Read EVERY single day

The fastest way to succeed in any field is to read. Read every single day.

Read marketing books. Read about psychology. Read about selling. Learn why people buy something.

Learn why people do what they do. If you know the behaviour of people, you can make a ton of money.

Most people are stuck in rat race and often forgetting the importance of understanding the people’s behaviour.

If you can sell a pen to random guy walking across the street, you can do almost in the world.

That selling skill can only be acquired if you learn from a book or mentor. Luckily, books are golden and often available at our disposal.

Tip #2: Work smart, not hard

Working 10 hours a day is one thing. Working 4 hours a day and spending 6 hours to coming up with new ideas to make more money is another thing. I belong to the 2nd category.

If you know me for some time, you know that I sleep every afternoon. I go to bed really early and I wake up at 5 AM every single day no matter what day it is (whether it’s my birthday, 31st december or some other fucking day).

I’ve a daily routine. I follow it rigorously.

The key is: work smart, not hard.

If you’re already working on a 9 to 6 job, find ways to reduce your commute time. Or use your commute time to read something or to develop a skill (be it coding or selling).

Tip #3: When everybody zigs, you zag

I love this.

When everyone zigs, I usually zag.

I love to create my own path. I never follow the crowd. I’m not boasting about it but the best way to succeed in life is to be independent.

Although I got so many opportunities to work along with top MNCs like Google, Facebook, Dropbox etc – I never preferred them for just one reason: I wanted to be my own boss.

I assure you that you’ll be a millionaire sooner or later if you find your own path. That’s the power of being independent.

Ask yourself “Is earning 30,000 or 1 lakh a month enough for you?”

What’s more important to you “money or happiness?”

Let me tell you one thing: 99% of your problems can be solved if you have enough money!

So go figure out ways to earn more money. Think BIG. REALLY Big. If you can dream it, you can make it.

Life is simple, people are complicated

I’ve a simple question for you: what’s the value of 4 + 5 = ?

Obviously, the answer is 9

Now.. tell me the value of the expression below:

0.5 { ln (e^(4))} +ln (e^(5))+e^(0 )+log (1)

The answer is the same 9.

We got the same result in the above 2 cases.

The first approach is simple and straightforward. But the second one is NOT.

If all of us are given an option to choose one of the above two options, almost everyone of us will pick the first one.

The same concept applies for our lives too.

Do these 4 things after 6 AM and your life will never be the same

Believe me when I say “How you spend your morning determines your success in life”.

How you spend your morning determines who you’ll become.

How you spend your morning is the difference between earning 30,000 rupees a month to earning 5 lakhs per month.

Morning hours are golden.

Many of my successful entrepreneur friends finish 80% of their tasks before 8 am.

If you’re someone who is looking to succeed I life, I’ve a quick tip for you: get up early.

I getup before 5 am every single day and here are few things that helped me increase my income by 4 times within a year (yea, exactly 4x within 12 months, that’s not bad!). I hope it will be helpful for you too.

Be grateful for everything you have in life

Life is a lot easier now than it has ever been. 200 years ago, if you didn’t kill your own food or build your own house, you would probably die. Today, we whine about forgetting an iPhone charger.

It’s all about perception. Focus on what you’re truly grateful for instead of focusing on bad things that are happening in your life. That’s how you live a stress-free and happier life.

Be grateful. Find happiness in every tiny moment of your life. Work hard. Be loyal. Live your legacy!

Did I ever tell you how lucky you are?

If the entire world is condensed to a globe of just 100 people, considering the present statistics, there would be 52 women and 48 men; 80 live in poverty, 70 illiterate, 50 suffer from hunger and malnutrition.

“Six people” hold 59% of the entire wealth. Only one person out of hundred would own a computer and only one would hold a university degree.

If you wake up in good health next morning, you are luckier than one million people, who won’t live through the week. If you have never experienced the horror of a war, the solitude of a prison, the pain of a torture, and were not close to death due to starvation; then you are better than 500 million people.

If you can go to your place of worship in your country, without fear that someone will assault or kill you, then you are luckier than 3 billion people. If you have clothes on your body, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are wealthier than 70% of the world’s population. If you have some money in a bank, a wallet or a purse and some coins in it, you are one of the 8 rich people out of 100 in the world.

If you can understand what I am saying, you are not one among the 3,000,000,000,000 people who cannot comprehend these facts. So, instead of cursing the society, exasperating with the economic system and infuriating with the people around you… think how best you can live here in this world and work happily for a better tomorrow.

Don’t think that money can be earned only through unethical means and corrupt practices.

A great piece of advice

Divide your life into four periods, from 0 to 15 is time to grow physically, from 16 to 30 time to grow in education, from 31 to 45 time to grow economically. 46 to 60 is time to enjoy all your growth.  After sixty is a gift.
