Karma works fast in life and business

Doing Good, being comprehensive, friendly and patient may be more rewarding than what you may think!
A week ago i had to travel from 1 country to another, i wanted to buy some stuff for a poor guy that sleeps near my building before i go, so went bought and gave him some food, then cleaned a bit my room and prepared my self for the trip, then i discovered that i did not notice that the plane was taking off from second airport terminal, and if i add the bus waiting and transport that would add 30-45 min, and gate was to close in 30 min, i would need 15-20 min to terminal 1 but at least 45 min to terminal 2! So i realised i had a problem, waiting a taxi will take too long, i tried to find some taxis near with no luck!
So i had to do the only thing left,
Take an autostop, from experience i knew that my chances are slim in getting a ride ! So i went to the main road towards the airport positioned myself in a place that would allow drivers to stop their car and used the please sign, and the in less than 1 min, a man stopped, i told him i’m late for my plane and i need to go to airport t2, so he drove me there, i left him a usb bracelet as a thank you gift, i got the bracelet from a tech company in Cannes Lions Advertising festival (which the 7 days entrance cost more than 2400$, i entered for Free posing as a convincing journalist- even without any journalist cards- but only attended 1 day- don’t need more, nothing breakthrough was being said anyway!)
Anyway the moral of the story, bought some food to a poor guy and immediately the autostop luck smiled at me ! And was able to catch my flight, and believe me, it’s like this often when you are being positive, positivity will send some luck your way!

As always this blog was posted with my iphone app, sorry for the mistakes

Positive energy and karma

I didn’t write a blog post since a long time, so i decided to share my thoughts about karma and positive energy!
I have the impression that negative energy is a core factor in bringing bad luck, while positive energy is a core factor in bringing good luck! In other words karma is not only limited to the scope of actions but it also involves the energy positive/negative.
And the execution arm of karma is luck:
So think about this post the next time you are mean with someone ( no matter if he/ she deserves it or not), think about this the next time you behave aggresively, the next time you are mistrusting, lying, …

Influence of living place and social influence on success

Did you ever wondered what is the influence of where you live on your carrier/ company success ?
You probably already know that a company location is probably the most important factor, but did you ever wonder what role does the residence location have??

To sum it up, there’s a saying”Location, Location, Location”

If you are a businessman, your residence location is as important as your company location, if not more!!

You might ask why?

If you are a social person, then your probably will have more opportunities, establish more cooperations and partnerships while you are outside your company office,
This is why your location of residence is so important, if you are living 20 km from the city, you might miss a lot of these meeting between friends, simply because you might not be in the mood to drive 30min-1h to meet some friends, so basically you are reducing the chances of meeting randomly someone or a friend that could become a big client or partner.

The farther you live from city center, the less the Ls variable will be reduced, (Ls: Living success), of course Ls is just a variable amongst other variables that contribute to success.

For instance, if you live in the city center but you are an asocial person, the the Ls variable will be useless

So here’s a formula:
Of Success depending on location:
Success rate= company location +
[ residence location * social behavior]

Ex: very social guy lives 10km from small city, his company in city center.
Sr= 10+[2*10]
If the guy was an asocial person
The second part would be [2*1] or something like that, if the asocial guy lived in city center [10*1] or [10*2]
so basically the overall social value of a geek living in city center could be equal to a social guy living in suburbs,
This is why location of residence is important.

Please note this formula is not independant from my previous formula of success, it is simply a part of that formula
