Who am I. Where am I from, education, first experiences of business and entrepreneurship, amount of work put in. Why I chose to be an entrepreneur?Mru Patel, Kenyan Indian British. … the IT industry at various levels of seniority for over 20 years but have always been an investor of sortsWithin six months of graduating Brighton University, I started my first business, a purchase of a small convenient store and an apartment which I turned round to a profitable business with additional development next door or a takeaway and an apartment. Following that I invested as an Angel investor or a Venture capitalist in various IT startups in India, California and UK, whilst I was in the corporate world of IT working in several blue chip organisations like Siemens, IBM, Unisys and Sun Microsystems(Oracle).

Keys to success: determination, positive and forward thinking, confidence, commitment First of all you need to know that success comes when you have massive levels of commitment, when you have the right values, when you are driven, and when you have the right energy.What’s the key of success in this? If you focus on your plans, never stay too far away from them, and you are ready to take action in your life, then you will succeed. The key is the dedication, the commitment and the hard work that you will put in for making this happen.The secret to success is to seize the moment when the opportunity comes."Real success is long term, it takes commitment. The difference between impossible and possible lies in the impact of a person's determination, and commitment to success. Determination is everything; those who want to succeed will find a way, and those who don't will find an excuse
Personal lifestyle change, spiritual, physical and mental transformation. Importance of health and wellness. Shakti Motivation. Importance of staying motivated.I always have and always will keep a positive attitude and outlook on life because I thoroughly believe in the affect this can have on a person and especially a team. Positive energy reflects in my business my home and my health..Last June I visited my friend at his health business and spa. However witnessing and acknowledging my hectic lifestyle as well as the eating, drinking and smoking habits and what it was doing to me in the long run, I decided to set some goals for myself and make that change! I soon realized why I actually went there and why I positively approached the whole programme. ! I hate to pop pills for any issue even for the common cold or flu. In fact I’ve only visited my dentist once in the past 6 years (to check up and do a hygiene cleanse), probably visited my general practice doctor 3-5 times in the past 30 years, and never been in hospital that I can remember, apart from a broken arm when I was about 10. Without health you will not have a happy life or family or finance to enjoy what you like. Importance of health…I lost my ignorance and arrogance, and started taking my health more seriously. I accepted that I must take my health seriously. The yoga and meditation sessions I follow have a simple mission – to empower me to enjoy life, not endure it. Many of us will be deeply religious and perhaps sceptical that yoga is not my thing as I am not a yoga type or Indian, Christian, or religious enough or spiritual enough etc… Yoga is all about community, society, and there is no religion or spirituality required to do it. It has to do with YOU, not the faith you follow.I cannot stop learning in this field, and wanted to make it easier for the common person to act on their desire to improve their life. Working on a large health and wellness venture. Includes motivation…* Motivation Slides…. Importance of Motivation…everybody needs some inspiration.
Laws of attraction & Action taking, goal setting85% of life is about the attitude, knowledge, mentoring/coaching you get and only 15% of time is taken to gain the skill and take action! We should chase excellence in executing our knowledge and skills with the right attitude and not run after success ! If the above is followed success will come to you”. everyone says One day or someday I will achieve xyz. If Oneday or someday existed, it would have been a date/day in the calendar rather than Wednesday or Friday. People must look deep into their blockages and past to explore why those are affecting their live. A coach and mentor can help.

My Favourite to adapt change ! “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” ― Bruce Leewww.EPISSRL.com www.MRUPATEL.com www.SHAKTIHOLISTIC.com
