IN THIS WORLD TODAY, WHY IS SUCCESS A BAD THING. WHY IF YOU ARE A MILLIONAIRE, YOU ARE EVIL. IF YOU ARE A BILLIONAIRE, YOU ARE AN ANTICHRIST. I GUESS BECAUSE OF THEIR PATHETIC JEALOUSY. YOU ARE WORRIED SOME PEOPLE DON’T LIKE YOU. REMEMBER IF YOU AIN’T MAKING ENEMIES, YOU AIN’T MAKING MONEY. IF EVERYBODY DON’T HATE, YOU ARE NOT LIVING UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL. YOU GET ONE SHOT AT LIFE, ONE DO AROUND AND YOU GRAB IT BY YOUR THROAT AND TURN EVERyTHING TOWARD YOU AND SCREW EVERYBODY ELSE.LET’S SEE THE LESSON FROM CAFE COFFEE DAY.
ALL ABOUT V.G SIDDHARTHA (Founder).
Born in Karnataka in 1959. Veerappa Gangaiah Siddharth Hegde was an Indian Businessman. The founder of Cafe Coffee Day, acting as the chairman and the managing director. He completed his graduation from St.Aloysious Mangalore University receiving the master’s degree in economics. Joining the J M Financial Limited in 1983 as a management trainee in Portfolio Management and Securities Trading on the Indian Stock Market. He also started his company Sivan Securities.
He established his Coffee Trading company ABC in Karnataka i 1993, the turnover of which was sixty million. He was the first person to set up a cafe in 1996 which is widely famous as the “CAFE COFFEE DAY”.Attracting 50000-60000 visitors a week, Cafe Coffee Day gained momentum and started to spread worldwide, becoming the best and the most famous cafe for youngsters.
Found missing on 28th July, his body was found by three fishermen at Hoige Bazaar beach near the mouth of river Nathravati.
The letter that Siddhartha had left behind stated that he was bearing high financial pressure and was under from lenders and harassment. He stated that he was no longer in a position to handle any pressure further and was also unable to build a company he once dreamt of rather he left himself in debts which he was unable to pay.
As of March, the debt stood at Rs 6537.32 cr. and the market capitalization stood at 4372.77 cr. According to the reports, CCD has already pledged 67 crore loss and the promoters have already pledged 75% of their stakes.
LESSON FOR LIFE.
It’s obvious that everyone needs a life full of luxury and for that one needs a settled business. The same thought V.G Siddhartha had in his mind, he wanted CCD to reach great heights and was also capable to do so. He won many hearts through CCD.
But all went in vain when the company started suffering debts and were unable to pay. The fear of income tax is in everyone’s mind. Siddhartha could not reduce the debts by repaying it rather he preferred quitting his life. I know this is not expected from an owner and the managing director of CCD but we never know how much he might have had suffered and the problems he faced which lead him to this.
Every time in life, we should be ready with a backup because no one knows what life will bring to you the next day. It can be a success and also a failure. We should keep learning and growing.
TO ME,FAILURE IS THE MOTHER OF ALL SUCCESS.
IF MICHEAL JORDAN WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN THROWN OUT FROM THE BASKETBALL TEAM IN THE 7TH GRADE, HE WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN MICHAEL JORDAN TODAY.
IF WALT DISNEY WOULDN’T BE CALLED A PERSON WITH NO IMAGINATION IN A NEWSPAPER, HE WOULDN’T BE THE WALT DISNEY WE SAW.
The only thing they did is learn from their failure and strive for success and come back bigger, better and stronger. All it will do is lead you in the right direction. If you always win, you won’t understand what it is to win. You gotta take those hits that’s gotta be the peaks, the valleys, the step-ups, the step-downs.
IT’S NOT ABOUT MAKING IT. IT’S ABOUT MAINTAINING IT.
STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE.
You gotta emerge in life and strive for excellence. Make your passion a priority and never look for money, Let money look for you. Have the patience to let things fall in place through constant hard work. Nothing goes in vain. There is no failure only opportunities. Nothing can hold you down. You gotta do a training called FOCUS ON SELF because you have got what it takes. If it’s not working for you it’s just because you never ran after your dream, you never developed those ideas, you never used those gifts and talents. A lot of people fear rejection. See you will be rejected many times but that rejection should bring the heat inside you to succeed. Most of the people fear NO but trust the fact that a NO is taking you closer to your dream if you don’t quit. Hearing no five times is a good experience than hearing yes in the first attempt.
THREE PHILOSOPHY OF SAM BERNS’ LIFE:
BE OK WITH WHAT YOU ULTIMATELY CAN’T DO, BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH YOU CAN DO.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE YOU WANT TO BE AROUND.
KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
SAM was so strong from the inside that he used to say “No matter what I choose to become, I know I can change the world”.Having PROGERIA(A progressive genetic disorder that causes children to age rapidly).SAM had his goals and ambitions and for that he never let his disease bother him much rather he wanted to live up to his potential till the time he is alive.
IF SAM CAN THINK SO DEEPLY, WHY CAN’T YOU?
EASY COME, EASY GO.
You know to get where you wish to you will have to flip through the hoops. Whatever you wish to do, do it with potential because if you won’t do it, life will ask you to surrender. Your talents and gifts will take you to places that will literally amaze you. You will get a larger vision of yourself. If you want something out of life, you gotta be hungry. Remember the more easily you get into anything, the easier are the chances of getting out. You will never have a problem-free moment in your life.
Problems are the heartbeats and you cannot skip one.
Remember, “IF IT AIN’T ONE THING, IT’S ANOTHER”.
