YOU ARE BORN FOR A REASON-BIG OR SMALL!!

We start to live our lives from the day we start to take our very first  breath that god has given to us.Our purpose starts to take shape.With that first breath,we also step in the world which has endless failure for people who give up and astounding success for individuals who never give up trying.Money,fame ,success…all this has no meaning if the person has not worked harder and harder each day in order to achieve it.

We often hear…”HARDWORK IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS”;for achieving anything, hardwork is must.Work is a great rescue for all difficulties.Constant vigilance and dedication towards work is the price that we pay to gain success in life.Without hardwork, one cannot achieve,but can only dream and desire of achieving it.People go through certain phases in life….good and tough times.We are all humans,we all have that capability to make life as it existed in our dreams.When our time to experience that ‘dream’finally arrives,we forget almost everything and we ultimately get lost in that success,that success which we have been desperately wanting since forever.But somehow,when we actually start to live that dream,we forget about how to make it last forever.In that particular time we only think of our present and not future and hence we face hardship in our future.

The longest journey that we as human being will ever go through is the journey of life.Life has its ups and downs and at the most unexpected time,can go into a horrifying downfall,which has rough and bumpy corners.We eventually ask ourselves,”do we have any control on what our future holds or which turn we will take?

It is  true that life cannot be perfect all the time.Once in a life time,every person faces ups and downs in their lives.It is also  true that an individual with his strength to hold on and with the power of determination can conquer any battle,even if it is the “BATTLE OF LIFE”.Man is born to to work,prosper and grow in life.Just like steel,he shines in use and rusts in rest.

How does it matter if a man lives for ninety years and it is all a story of idleness and wasted opportunities? Lord Jesus Christ died when he was hardly thirty,Lenin died before he was sixty,and yet they have impressions on human history.Idleness  is truly a curse.If we waste time,time shall waste us.A life crammed with work is a life bubbling with a joy of success.Great men of the world were born as unfortunates in cottages but they died in idols,in palaces.

To sum up,greatness and success lie in hard,honest and selfless work.life can be hard to understand and I don’t think even the person most in touch with themselves knows why they were put on  this earth.I believe that we were put on this earth for a reason,big or small.Do we have a plan of our life set out for us already,that we have to follow,no matter how much we try to change it!!

WHY SHOULD YOU FOCUS ON FIRST THING FIRST!!

7 STEPS:

1-Everyone without exception has a talent that comes easy to them.It could be a talent for number,running a business,acting,public speaking and for getting along with people…whatever! If you can find something you are really good at,you are more likely to succeed at it.You have given yourself a head-start.

2-The corollary to finding your talent,of course,is denying what you are best at.The only thing worse than not finding your genius is finding it and wasting it.

3-Tomorrow will take care of itself.There is lot to be said for having long terms goal,for having a vision of where you want to be in a month,a year or a decade,but not if it binds you to the importance of what you are doing now.We should be more impressed with people who can focus on problems that need immediate attention.They build their success step-by-step,by concentrating on each challenge,as if it is the only thing that matters.

THAT IS FOCUS.

Don’t be distracted by what others do-unless you can use it to inspire you.

4-People have two options when they are in a jam.They can try to waffle around the problem or they can open their soul and tell the truth.

CANDOUR IS THE BETTER OPTION(being open and honest).

When in doubt,I am very upfront.If I have done anything wrong,I just admit it.If I am mad,I say so.If I am disappointed,I let people know.Candour is not only personally therapeutic,but it tends to calm most raw nerves.

Candour can also set you apart from the crowd.Most people are not as candid as they should be about what they have done or what they can do for you.Be candid with people in those moments when you have achieved far less than expected.you will find that they are more likely to remember your frankness instead of your failings.They are also more likely to forgive you and to be equally candid with you.

5-We have all known people who can light up a room.They lift people’s spirit with their energy,good humour and confidence simply by walking through the door.Enthusiasm is contagious.And when other people catch it,they will go out of their way to accommodate you,sometimes even when it is inconvenience to him.

6-The best thing about doing what you love is that it empowers you to keep  going to endure the hardships and sacrifices long after your opponents have quit for the day.That advantage is very hard for others to overcome.In fact,the hardship tend to become a satisfying part of the process.If you don’t love what you are doing,you don’t love succeeding at it.In fact you won’t succeed at all.

7-You have to have fire in your belly.If that is not there in whatever you do,you can never experience MAGIC MOMENTS in your life and career.

EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP &DEVELOPING A VISION

To be an effective leader, your people have to trust you and they have to be sold your vision.To get people develop such confidence in your leadership ability, you have to help them reach their own goal, and you have to possess an energy and positive attitude that is contagious-Says Ravi Singh

What makes people want to follow a particular leader? Honestly,there has never been much of a mystery about it.People want to be guided by those they respect, who are worthy of being followed and by those who have a clear sense of direction.So to become a successful leader,we have to convince our followers-not over ourselves or our superiors that we are credible leaders who are worthy of being followed!!

  1. GREAT MANAGERS vs GREAT LEADERS:There is a whole of a difference between a great manager and a great leader.Managers are people who do things right while leaders are people who do the right things.

  1. BE SOMEONE WHOM YOUR FOLLOWERS TRUST: You gain the trust of others by keeping your word,by doing what you you say will do.It is also important to stand up for your beliefs instead of shifting direction every time there is change in wind.People like to trust those they can count on,even when they disagree with their viewpoint, more than people they agree but who shift positions frequently.

  1. CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN MEET THEIR NEEDS: You begin by becoming good listener,and do something that convince them that you have their interest at heart.

  1. PROVING YOUR COMPETENCE: The surest way to prove your competence is to be consistently right.Obviously,that is not always going to be the case.Since you cannot exert total control over your track record,atleast try this!! Be clear what you know and what you do not know.Don’t pretend you have got all answers,or you have powers over factors which you cannot control. Continue your own education through training programme,by reading, and by talking to industry people outside your company.Therefore,continuously work to improve yourself.

  1. TOP 10 CHARACTERISTIC OF A LEADER: Integrity, imaginative/visionary, Competent, Forward-looking, Inspiring, Intelligent, Fair-minded, Broad-minded, courageous and Straightforward.

DEVELOPING A VISION:Picture what it must have been like for Piano turned milkshake-mixture salesman Ray Kroc to deliver eight machines to Richard & Maurice McDonald’s Bernardino Restaurant in 1952 to discover the line of customers waiting for hamburger and to come to sudden realization that he could probably make a fortune by franchising the McDonald brother’s drive-in-restaurant.(During the next five year’s Kroc organized a chain of 228 McDonald’s restaurant-the rest is, as we all know, is history)

The first basic ingredient of leadership is a guiding vision. Visionaries are able to focus sharply on a future that is filled with creative fresh ideas. Leaders reach for any opportunities to change, grow and improve and out of that reaching, they develop a vision for what needs to be done.

Find something that is not broken and fix it before it breaks. Assume that someday your company’s practices and products will be all wrong, and before that time arrives, figure out a way to improve or replace them.

TREAT EVERY JOB AS A TURNAROUND EFFORT. IT WILL HELP BRINGING OUT THE VISIONARY IN YOU.

HOW TO FOCUS ON YOUR CAREER!!

14 BEST PRACTICES TO ACHIEVE WHAT
YOU DESIRE IN YOUR CAREER!!

 

1-BE LOYAL: Bosses can forgive carelessness,stupidity,tardiness and the occasional temper tantrum.These can be corrected,BUT DISLOYALTY IS A TRUE CHARACTER FLAW.You cannot and will not be TRUSTED.Remember this.

 

2-KEEP THE BOSS INFORMED: Such as about what you are doing,where you are,who you are to and why.Bomb the boss with all relevant information until he says ‘STOP’.No one has ever lost his job for telling the boss too much.

 

3- EMBRACE THE CHANGE: Even if you do not understand it.Any boss,as part of his job, instigate change.It is not your job to resist.

 

4-RESPECT BOSS’S TIME:If you need 30 minute with him,do not  take 60.Better yet,take 20.

 

5-DON’T TREAD ON HIS TURF: Atleast not without his permission.

 

6-FOLLOW UP QUICKLY: Bosses do not pull out a stop watch when they give a command.But,trust me,their internal clock is ticking.

 

7-VEILD COMMAND:Like most people,you probably have the good sense to obey a direct command.If the boss says ‘jump’ you jump.But the best bosses are not so crude.They want subordinate to think for themselves and,therefore,they do not give explicit orders.They imply.BE ALERT TO THIS.

 

8-BE A CALMING INFLUENCE: Being a calm voice is a wise strategy in almost any any situation.The more heated the other party is,the cooler you should be.If you can keep your head,while all those around you are losing theirs,YOUR AUTHORITY WILL ALWAYS EXCEED THEIRS.

 

9-STICK TO POINT:One of the easiest way to influence a situation is to help the participant stay in the subject.People gravitate not only to the wise person but to the disciplined one as well.

 

10-BE SELF STARTER: Do not rely on someone  else’s initiates.Take the initiatives yourself.In most group situations,the person who initiate a project or concept usually becomes the authority in the area.

 

11-PRAISE PEOPLE: Praise is a subtle and wonderfully effective way to gain influence over people.It is effective because three things happen when you praise someone.1- the person likes hearing it; 2- he likes you for saying it; 3- he wants to hear more.

 

12-RANCH ON ONE BOSS: Do not bet on  the ranch on one boss.Each of us knows employees who take advantage of their proximity or access to the head of their company.Having a mentor or ally in the top ranks can give your career a powerful boost.But billing your career on the boss is a double edged sword-please avoid it!!

 

13-USE THE BOSS: Bosses like to be used,no matter how isolated they seem or how far removed from day-to-day activity.Every boss loves to be given an opportunity to demonstrate that he or she can still hack it in the tenches.

 

14-ACT AS IF YOU HAVE INFLUENCE:As a general rule,if you want to become the boss,start acting like one.The people who go ahead are not necessarily smarter.They simply have a better understanding of this influence and they are not afraid to exercise it.While their rivals are making a recommendation,the winners are already in action.

ITS HUMAN RELATION THAT MATTERS!!

1-What is the Most Important Word….in the dictionary? It is the sound of your name.And how cheerful you feel when someone remembers it.It certainly makes you like him,doesn’t it ? And how small you feel,if someone who should have remembered,forgets your name.For most people,their names(especially  first name) are the most important word in the world.

 

2-Being Psychoanalyzed: Why do we criticize?If it is because we want people to do better work and improve in future,it is all well and good, but is that the real reason?Analyze your motives.It will help you a lot.

 

3-Let it Simmer:Do you know that in your ordinary day-to-day life,it also does a lot of good if you let things simmer.A delay of a day or  two seldom does any harm.But if you do a thing in a hurry and in anger and retort with a furious reply,the damage done  may be enormous.And it may take months of hard work to put things right again.

 

4-Pave the way:This is what one must do before you criticize anybody.If people have done something the wrong way and even if they know that they are in the wrong,they will resent it bitterly if you tell them so.You may first talk about neutral subject.Then find something you can braise.Pave the way.People will then take cricism willingly,otherwise,they will fight to the last to prove BLACK IS WHITE.

 

5-Eat it….that’s the worst about threats.We mostly threaten without thinking,and in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred,we have to eat our threats simply because we just cannot carry them out.So don’t threaten,because,when you have to eat your words,it is very humiliating.It does not do you or anybody any good!!

 

6-Readymade suits:you must have found that in most cases they do not  fit.It is same with readymade answers.When someone brings a problem,you should not give him a quick readymade answer,even if you know it is the right one.Instead help him to think out the answer for himself.Let him workout his own solution.It is far better this way than giving him the answer straightway.you will never find a faster way of making people more efficient.

 

7-The little Personal Touches:Its little personal touches that make all the difference.If one of your man is away sick,enquire about his health when he comes back.It does not take too much time or effort.It is just  a question of being thoughtful. Believe me,these little human touches certainly makes all the difference.

 

8-Listen Patiently:The best way to handle complaints is simply to listen patiently and attentively.A man often only wants to get something off his HEAD AND CHEST.
