I was wondering if I should share this or not, after all, as a businessman I didn’t want to share one of my personal favorite business techniques, but then there are times when you need to go beyond the immediate benefit.
This one is dedicated to all those who are struggling in their jobs, wondering whether to launch a business or stay on as an employee. Lord help you if you were born with this yoga in India.
In India we have a “job security” culture, if you are a North Indian, you want a secure (preferably Sarkari) job, and if you are a South Indian, you want an IT job that gives you a visa to the States, or at the very least, to the Gulf.
Beyond this, there are no careers, at least in most parents’ eyes. I often say that a good Indian child would have to do three things:
1. Study Science
2. Play Cricket
3. Prepare for a government job
If you don’t do any of these three, you are not a true Indian citizen.
Now this leaves one very big lacune in the system and the nation: We have too many job seekers, what we need is more job creators i.e. entrepreneurs, God knows we have more than enough Babus and Babu wannabes. Millions of Indians any given day are preparing for a government job, or are at least agitating for one. 99.999% of them would be disappointed after wasting years of their lives. Furthermore, a much bigger number is joining the ranks of the unemployed, every day.
Government cannot be expected to create enough jobs for such a massive population, what we need is a robust system of creating EMPLOYERS…entrepreneurs who can create enough jobs for such a big population.
How do we identify which kids have been blessed with the ability to create jobs and run their own things?
Well here this humble astrologer is going to step in and share this post. The #1 indicator of a business and entrepreneurship is SUN IN THE 1STHOUSE…!
How do I know this? I see thousands upon thousands of chart every year. This is one yoga that is hardwired to be their own boss. I know this really well because I was born with it…literally…and launched my first start up at the age of 9…!
Anti-Climax: My mother shut down my business on day 1 and I was encouraged to “Become a doctor first and then an IAS” (I was born in UP what do you expect?).
And here I am blissfully running my own small show, neither an IAS nor a doctor, but a humble astrologer who is as happy as a loon, enjoying my life, lording over my small castle.
Sun in 1st will not work for the others for very long, they have that inner soul calling to work for themselves. It is not an ego thing, this is their soul’s wake up call.
So my friend if you have Sun in the 1st listen to your inner voice, you are not here for being a slave, you will be a king…even if of a very small kingdom…you will find a way.
And if you are a parent with a child with Sun in the 1st don’t worry about his job, he won’t need one, he is born to create jobs. God knows we need such children. Encourage his entrepreneurship and guide him with things regarding to business and money management (he will not be very fond of details). Let him run a small business of his own, no matter how humble, help his strength bloom. He will make you proud, and you will thank yourself later, and so would many others who would work for him later in life.
Don’t worry about him…he is not going to seek a job…he is going to create a few…be proud of him…heaven knows we need him.
