We all know that ideas are the currency of success these days.
To win and be a leader in your marketspace, its mission-critical to out-think, out-innovate and out-create your competition. The person with the biggest ideas and of course with the best execution will lead the field.
This reminds me to Ryanair. It is Europe’s most profitable airline( about $400 million in profit so far this year) at a time when other airlines are struggling and sinking with high fuel prices( Jet blue, another very cool company lost money this year for the first time ever).
In the past one year,Rayanair has flown 35million passenger at an average ticket price of $50. And, get this, 25% of its flights are free. Seriously!!
Rayanair’s goal is to one day( soon) make flying absolutely free.
SO,HOW DOES IT MAKE MONEY?
By charging for other services. Advertising revenue comes from the commercials on the back of the seats. Check-in luggage cost $3.50 per piece. Food is always extra.
Ryanair did not only brilliantly reinvent the business model for winning in their industry. They have brilliantly executed their business model too. They have shown us what innovation and imagination is all about in the change-crazy economy. We are forced to operate within.
So, bottom line is that ,superb and brilliant ideas without execution make no sense.
Through my Post of 24th March, I had informed my WordPress community friends about my 6 e-books( Link given under each book) available at Amazon Kindle App.
The Response from my wordpress community has been great and as a result of this, sale of my ebooks have registered a sudden jump by 50% growth in last one week only.
I THANK YOU ALL,MY FRIENDS WHO HAVE READ BY BOOKS LAST WEEK!!
The quality of your life comes down to the quality of your relationships. With your loved one, with your self, your customers, with your suppliers. Commit to insanely great relationships and you will have an insanely great life.
And being a great human connector is pretty easy stuff. Remember, successful relationships is all about a masterful consistency around fundamentals.
The following six First Principle are profoundly simple and yet simply profound – and is not that the case for all great truths?
- Be the first one to say hello, namaste or whatever may be appropriate when you meet another person. In other words, be kind first which takes courage, because we are all scared of rejection.
- Smile a lot. It is one of best ways to have someone open up to you. Remember, we make lasting impressions on people within the first few minutes of meeting them.
- Use people’s name. This is really important. It shows that you care, and is a mark of respect.
- Look people in the eye when you speak to them.
- Offer honest compliments. Praise is free. Never miss an opportunity to celebrate and elevate another person, whether at work or at home. You will connect with the best within them. And then they will give you their best. Leave people feeling better than you found them.
- Treat everyone like royalty. And I do mean everyone; it scares me when someone is really nice to me but rude to a waiter- no consistency there. Behave as if you will never see them again.
Master these First Principles and you will get to your mountaintop more quickly than you can ever imagine!!
I hope you are doing well and are staying both safe n productive while you are spending more time at home. While many others are streaming movies,we hope you spend much of this time involved in your growth and development. So i am giving my all those e books available at Amazon’s kindle store(link given below each book)
Reading these books will boost your imagination and help you elevate-and achieve-your goals. These books will shift yr paradigm( the mental programme that has almost exclusive control over your habitual behavior)
Sit back,relax, and enjoy the Paradigm Shift!!
Choice is yours!!
I think-to choose our attitude. You?
One of my favourite books is ‘ Man’s Search for Meaning. written by Victor Frank, an Austrian Psychotherapist who survived confinement in Nazi concentration camp. So many of those around him perished. They lost hope. They fell into despair, then death!
He managed to get through the ordeal by applying what I believe is our highest human freedom: OUR ABILITY TO CHOOSE HOW WE RESPOND TO AND PROCESS ANY EVENT THAT HAPPENS TO US.
We can look for some good or we can become haunted by the bad. Choice is ours!
In my view everything can be taken from a man EXCEPT ONE THING, the last of human freedoms to choose one’s attitude to a given set of circumstances, to choose one’s way.
SUCH A SUPERB AND BRILLIANT ‘OPTION’ TO ALL OF US!!
Do you ever notice that it is the people we love most that we take most for granted? It is easy to spend less time with your family because they will always be there for you or so you assume. It is easy to hold back expressing your love to your loved ones because there seems to be no urgency to do so. It is so easy to let home relationship slip because you assume there are more pressing things to deal with.
But tell me honestly what could possibly be more important than your family? Think for a while, what is the point of being Super-Successful, but alone? A full family photo album is far more brilliant and impressive to me than an overflowing bank account( I am not undermining a decent bank account). Honestly. Trust me!!
So pick up the phone and tell your parents that you love them. Before you leave for work, give your spouse a warm kiss-like you really mean it!! Say I love you to that special one! Be honest!! And please hug your kids and tell them you love and adore them. CARE TO EXPRESS NOT IMPRESS!! Your Kids will only be young once. And when the window of opportunity closes, it will close for ever.
The journey toward any result- whether that result is being amazingly good at what you do for a living or great in the way you conduct your life- is just as important than the end. I guess what I am inviting you to consider is that climb offers you far more value and as many rewards as getting to your mountain top.
Because the climb to your ideas shapes your character, offers you opportunity to realize your potential and test you to see how much you really want to win. It is the climb that teaches you, transforms you and evokes the genius that inhabits you. you get to develope the Qualities of Greatness, such as perseverance, courage, resilience, compassion and understanding.
Sure, getting to the dream feels deliciously wonderful. I will be the first to agree with you on that. But it does not bring you the same sustained gifts that the journey does. We learn more from the time that tests us than we do from times of success.
So, the next time you feel impatient or frustrated or hopeless enroute to the professional and personal life that you want, remember that precisely where you are might be the best place you could possibly be.
And maybe the journey is better than the destination!!
