Do you believe in Mother?

In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other:
“Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”
The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”
The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”
The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”
“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”
The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”
The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”
Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”
To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.”

Success

Never before in my life I had this idea of what it takes to be successful. Frankly enough, it takes more than it looks.
d1f30f57-8d97-46ec-a081-1e488360baf3-originalThese learning are majorly coming from my new startup called Zold. We are trying to improve the education system by providing more opportunities to students. Providing a better exposure to students no matter what they want to do is our mission. To do it, we have already pivoted from our initial plan.

Startups are emotionally and economically stressful. Building a profitable startup is something I am looking for. That is why I am not looking to get any investment right now either. People may just see our number of clients at this point, but not the hours spent in creating the landing page, writing content, making MVP, getting feedback, iterating, reaching out to clients, getting rejections on face (set aside all the boring stuff of creating a legal entity).

I used to live with the perspective of earning X amount of money every month. Now I also understand that sometimes the market just isn’t right. You need to wait. You cannot do anything about it. You will have to wait.

The best way I see is to create multiple revenue streams and create on them with time. So right now I have decided to do some freelance work as well to support the rest of the project. 🙂
