Happy Dussehra to you and your beloved family,
Navratri Festival: Day 9 – Ram Navami – Purple
Let me share a small true story:
In 2013 she was my staff for a short while, a single parent with huge responsibility on her shoulder. Yesterday (24-Oct-20) I met her and family. It was a panic call. I couldn’t sense what was in store for me.
She lost her father to a cardiac arrest because Jaipurwala Phuphaji took away the land which was rightfully her father’s.
Death benefit of 18 Lakhs was lost in a property deal because her Mother trusted a friend “who was always there in their crisis”.
Lost 5 Lakhs to Pearl Investment Co.
A relative who happened to be a Mutual Funds Advisor does not manage portfolio well.
I was frozen after 4 hours long meeting. I needed couple of drinks to rest at night.
What happened with her was exactly what I had been warning you in the past 8 days.
That is reality, painful one at that. “We would have been better off, had I been with your firm for the last lost 7 years” she said, struggling to hold her tears back.
Legacy is one that I wish to address today. May be I learnt this at a very young age.
“Your family legacy is determined by the actions that you take today”. John Di Lemme.
“Legacy is not what I did for myself. It’s what I’m doing for the next generation.” Vitor Belfort
L1: Create your succession plan.
L2: Create a proper will.
L3: Buy proper life and health insurance cover.
L4: Think about grand children and their future.
L5: Wealthy people must register a Trust in their name to help the underprivileged.
Plan all forms of Investments with an eye on the future. When you look at big business houses around you, dream and have that Déjà Vu goose bumps.
Don’t you worry, what you have planted today will grow to become a big tree tomorrow providing shade to lots of people.
Teach your next generation about the need to give it back to the society. What you couldn’t do in your life time, make the next do with a vision.
I want my life, thoughts and vision to go on, even when I am gone. I want those who outlive me to extend my life, not just to remember it.
लोका: समस्ता: सुखिनो भवन्तु (May the whole world live in happiness) because you took the first step, now it will go on and on.
I will end my Navratri Puja writing with a quote from an Iranian-American Mr. Farshad Asl.
“Everyone leaves behind a legacy of some kind, but those who approach living with a ‘No Excuses’ mindset leave a legacy of value.”
