Convince your Mom

“Mom, I have nothing in my hand (read bank account) but I have this idea that I really love working on and would love to start off on it. I am not sure if its going to be successful, not sure if I am going to make any money out of it, but this is what will allow me to have a content sleep after a tiring day. I might have to survive just on bread, but I am going to be really happy working on it.” 

How will most Indian moms react?

– Shocked at the lack of responsibility
– Dismay at the intelligence after the money spent on her kids schooling
– Worried and tensed about her child not choosing to settle in life
– and more and more reactions that we might have faced. 

But if we can’t convince our Mom who raised us and knows us more than we do, what conviction are we bringing to the table?

Side Note: Is it really tough to convince your Mom or are you making this an alibi to your fear of failure?

  1. Well, mostly a mother would be shocked when her child chooses to pursue his/her dream instead of going the tried and tested way. There certainly will be a way of convincing her. 🙂

  2. Exactly and that’s the point. If you can’t convince your own Mom who knows you in and out, how do you intend to convince (that’s marketing but nevertheless) the world who don’t know you at all.
