I told you about #IconsAround project yesterday right? Today I’ll be sharing with you the first inspiring story. A 23 year old guy from Kolkata, West Bengal – Prasenjit Paul, who resigned from IBM on his first day! Why? You’ll be hearing in his own words. Though he is a junior from my college – Bengal Engineering & Science University, Shibpur; but we never met at college. I met him on Facebook one day, and got fascinated when he told me that he too didn’t take job from campus interviews & would rather pursue his career as an Entrepreneur. We became friends & kept exchanging thoughts. I personally wanted to know more about his Stock Advisory Firm PaulAsset.com and his journey as an Entrepreneur. Now with #IconsAround I thought why not tell his story to the world? I requested him for an interview and he agreed! So with great excitement, let me share with you the story of this young Entrepreneur. Keep reading.
You know I’ve thought about this for so long. From my school days I suppose. This is one of the things from my bucket list, things I want to do before I die. We have enough, or I should say more than enough negative stories in our life. Ranging from newspapers, news channels, gossiping friends, relatives, neighbors in offline world to sensational negative viral news online. But isn’t there positive stories that can inspire people? Yes! There are! But those stories aren’t reaching to common people. Why? Because of a pathetic excuse ‘positive stories doesn’t sell’. But the reality is gradually common people are being programmed to be addicted to negative stories. And this non stop negative programming is creating lots of troubles in people’s lives today. That’s why this initiative. To remind people that goodness still in the world, dreams do come true, true love exists, challenges can be won, and above all life is wonderful!
Few days back a very good friend and brother of mine Souvick shared his blog post Desired.Waited.Acieved with me. You know how much I love dreamers, and this guy had a dream to get into IBM. Even after facing many challenges, he kept moving and finally made his dream a reality. He shared this experience in his blog post. I was so happy. I left a comment at his post, congratulating him and wishing for his best future, and I was about to leave. Just at that moment, Souvick messaged me on Facebook “your comment is very valuable there, for the fellow aspirants as well“. Honestly, first I thought can my comments be really valuable to IBM aspirants (or any Job aspirants)? As I never ever had any kind of experiences related to job – never wrote CV, never applied/appeared for/cleared any interview/GD etc. Been an Entrepreneur all my life. But then I thought, that I can definitely give some career advice, even if it’s not specific get-good-job tips. I went back to his post and edited my comment. I want to share the same with you. Please keep reading.

Imagine walking into an airport to board a plane. Suddenly you meet Santa asking you what you wish for this Christmas. You find it amusing and tell him casually what you wish for. Phew, as if you are going to get that for real. But when you reach your destination and go to collect your luggage, you find a wrapped up present with it. And when you open that – OMG! It’s just the thing you wished for! Sounds too good to be true? Well, WestJet did that for real! Watch the video above.
When I opened Facebook today, found a very interesting post shared by my friend Anirban. How most of the time hard work and dedication of high performing individuals is overlooked and their success is attributed to their good luck. Like Anirban I don’t believe in luck either. But I don’t think only hard work and dedication can be the key to success or happiness. There is more to the equation. Otherwise the lowest paid people in any professions didn’t have to work hardest to earn their living. So what’s the missing link?
