lessons given by Goddess Laksmi for successful business

Goddess Lakshmi also known as Goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity has a strong connection with business and teach us lessons which can help us to lead a successful life.
As per the Indian mythology Lord Indra threw a garland of sacred flowers which where offered to him by a sage. His arrogant behaviour made Lakshmi upset and she entered into the milky ocean. The churning of the milky ocean, story of fight between gods and demons to gain immortality led to the rebirth of Goddess Lakshmi.
The four things Goddess Lakshmi teach us during the churning of ocean which required to be a successful business person is:

1. Hard Work: Deities and Demons churned the ocean for more than 1000 years to rose anything to the surface. Rebirth of Goddess Lakshmi was the reward of their hardwork. This shows that a person should always work hard for their aim to be fulfilled. To start anykind of business lots of hardwork is involved to make it operate or function well.

2. Purpose: Their is always a motive to achieve something for which hard work is required. Hardwork without purpose will be insuficient to accomplish the desired goal. In the story itself the Deities worked with a motive to get the ratnas and Goddess Lakshmi out.

3. Belief: While churning the ocean, the first thing to come out was poision. Instead of getting demoralised Deities and Demons continued the churning with a belief to find Lakshmi. To achieve anything in life the most important thing is to believe in yourself. Before investing or taking anykind of business risk people should always have belief and confidence in themselves.

4. Persistence: As the Deities and Demons did not lost their hope and will and continued to churn the ocean for 1000 years, they were rewarded with the 14 precious ratnas. In the same way people should always continue doing their hardwork and all the efforts required to help you and your business grow.
