Success mantra:
Before starting a business you have to think about these two points
1. Choose that business which you love and enjoy. Business should be a play for you, not pressure, tension and burden. 
Remember your childhood play games, you played cricket whole day but didn’t get tired. Actually you enjoyed it. If you study your boring subject whole day, then definitely you would be tired.
So before doing business, think about your interests & your hobbies and then select your business. 
If a business makes you happy and a business which is a play for you then start this business. 
2. Start any business full time. Only one aim your business. Start one business in one time. Devote yourself to your business. Don’t think about part time business and a job simultaneously. Sailing on two boats will lead to failure. 
To become successful two things are important 
(a) Love your Business, if you don’t love your business, then definitely you would fail. If you want to be successful start loving your business today.
(b) Which field you love, make this your business. These two points will help you.
