TAKE ACTION

STOP LIVING IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE-WAITING TO
START WHEN EVERYTHING WILL FALL IN PLACE

                                                 ⇓

                                    TAKE ACTION

 

“The distance between Dream and Reality is called ACTION”

Think about it!! Take your first step forward!!

You cannot succeed in life,unless you begin and end.Getting started or taking that first step is utmost important.Nothing else matters.Always remember that the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. TAKE THAT FIRST STEP TODAY!!

There is a great substance in that old saying  that old saying that you don’t need to be Great to get started,but you have to get started to be Great.you may have brilliant ideas and plans,and we may not doubt its intent.But all these things have no meaning,if you don’t make a beginning first.We often hesitate to take that first step and we live in our comfort zone-waiting to start when everything fall in place.

WE FORGET THAT EVERYTHING SELDOM FALLS INTO PLACE!!

If i may say,if there is anything which is the biggest contributor to stress in the workplace,it is surely UNFINISHED task.Learn to finish task.Get rid of them.If something important and worth has to be done,it must be done at first.All successful people make it a habit to begin and end what they have started.This is their most important traits!!

SO,IF YOU HAVE BIG IDEA OR SECRET PLAN-TAKE THAT FIRST STEP TODAY!!!

Want to become a Guitarist? Buy your guitar today!! Make a habit to prepare a list of unfinished work and your TO-DO-LIST.you must be determined to complete at least one of these tasks today!!

JUST DO IT and see the difference.

Life will begin to make a lot more sense,and YOU WILL BE ABLE TO COVER THE DISTANCE BETWEEN DREAM AND REALITY.

GOOD LUCK!!

WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN?

WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN?

 

  • FLAMES OF PASSION:

You will come across people who are highly educated and knowledgeable, skilled, passionate, energetic and hardworking, yet they may fail to make things happen. I have seen such people, Have you?

IF YES, DID YOU EVER THINK-WHY?

My friends-it is not so much about education, knowledge, talent or skill that matters. Ultimately, it is all about you and your dreams that makes things happen. Based on my own experience, i would like to tell you THREE very important elements that is required to make things happen in your life.

1-Compelling Reason

2-Burning Desire

3-Sense of urgency(Do it now Attitude)


  • COMPELLING REASON

A compelling reason is your own personal reason-why you want to achieve something.

It could be your Dream to have a better life style, big bungalow, dream luxury cars like Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi and Bentley etc, big bank balance etc etc. It could be to go out there and change many lives. It could also be to achieve a very ambitious target in your corporate job.

But trust me, nothing will move or happen, unless you have compelling reasons, which push you forward and compel you to do it. It keeps you going and drive you out there every day. Compelling Reasons define logic. Your compelling reason could be retaining your corporate job.

So, please identify your compelling reason. Find out what is driving you every day – That is your compelling reason.

  • BURNING DESIRE:

Power of compelling reason will take you to next step. Your compelling reason lights a fire in your heart, which create something, known as burning desire or passion. It is a fire within you which is contagious.

Burning desire can be about anything, which comes out of you in a natural way. You behave in a ‘DO OR DIE’ manner. Others should sense your passion and seriousness. You cannot inspire or motivate others,unless you have burning desire. You can keep your leadership going only if you are switched on. Ask others, do they see burning desire in you for what you are doing or what you want to achieve. Burning desire keeps you going in life without getting tired. Your compelling reason is your key to open the door which unleashes your burning desire.

  • SENSE OF URGENCY:

But, let me tell you, compelling reason and burning desire is not ENOUGH. You may still fail to make things happen without magic of a third element which is known as ‘Sense of Urgency’ and it means to  have a ‘Do it now attitude’.

People have the tendency to postpone everything. They will be seen taking new year resolution to give up smoking. They will decide on 1st jan 2017 to give up habit of  smoking on 1st jan 2018. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DATE WHICH NEVER COMES IN THEIR LIFE.

We tend to take life for granted as if we are going to live up to age of 85. BUT BE HONEST AND ASK YOURSELF CAN WE GUARANTEE A AGE OF 85 YEARS FOR US-OBVIOUSLY NO!! THERE IS NO GUARANTEE IN LIFE FOR ANYTHING.

I will tell you a story to instill sense of urgency. Medical check-ups are mandatory in various Professions. People normally go for basic medical check-up. But there was a person who had to go for an advance medical check-up. His doctor calls this person at 11 pm and asks him to meet him at his clinic tomorrow at 8 am, as he needs to discuss some very important and urgent things about his medical test report.

Imagine the condition of that person. WILL HE BE ABLE TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT? NO!! He will be at doctor’s clinic one hour before his appointment time. Doctor tells that person that he has got brain tumor, which cannot be operated at this stage. He also tells him that he has only 6 months to live. What do you think that person will do after this? Obviously, he will take a second or may be a third medical opinion. But all doctors say-he has only 6 months to live.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

Will that person be living the same life that he had been living last 6 months?No, definitely not!! He will now be living with a sense of urgency to complete many unfinished tasks in next 6 months to secure LIFE OF HIS FAMILY. He would no longer postpone anything and will be forced to move ahead with a ‘do it now attitude’- because it is now a question of ‘DO or DIE’ for him.

So, please wake up and smell the coffee. Do it now. No postponement. Your decision NOW becomes very personal that i will PUSH myself TODAY, NOT TOMORROW.

YOU HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW!!

“Destiny, only takes you so far. Once you are there its up to you to make things happen through these three elements.”

                       MY MESSAGE

 

DO I NEED TO WRITE IT DOWN?

ANYWAY, I WILL DO IT FOR BETTER CLARITY.

IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND AND ABSORB THESE THREE ELEMENTS:

1 COMPELLING REASONS

2 BURNING DESIRE

3 SENSE OF URGENCY

YOU CAN MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. NO ONE CAN STOP YOU.

YOU DECIDE!!!

BEST OF LUCK!

 

Your take on – Hard or Smart work !!

HARD WORK + SMART WORK = ACHIEVEMENT.

YOUR TAKE ON- HARD OR SMART WORK!!

Work very hard to earn good money and become a CEO of a world -class company- Is that true- No!! Not necessarily!!

We all work very hard from 9 am to 9 pm (12 to 14 hours) a day. Are we really earning good money to fulfill all dreams of our life? Perhaps, no!! So hardwork  alone may not be enough to realize your dreams in life.

IT IS SMART WORK ALONG WITH HARD WORK THAT PAYS YOU GOOD MONEY. I WILL EXPLAIN THIS WITH A TRUE STORY IN MY VILLAGE.

There was a wood cutter,working in a forest for his employer(normally called Seth in villages).He used to work very hard and cut trees from morning to evening(12hrs).This wood cutter would cut 5 small trees in a day and take 30 minute’s break for lunch.

There was another wood cutter,also working in the same forest for the same employer(seth).He was equally hard working but not as hard working as the first wood cutter.The second wood cutter use to cut trees only for 8 hrs and use to take 5 minute’s break after every one hour.So practically,this wood cutter was working only for 7 hrs.

The first wood cutter did not like this but he use to keep silence.When these both wood cutter went to their employer on the first day of the month to take their salary-employer gave Rs 1,000($16) to the first wood cutter and rs 2,000($32) to the second wood cutter.The first wood cutter did not like this discrimination and he told his employer upfront that,while he worked for him for 12 hrs,the second wood cutter worked only for 8 hrs.He also told seth that he only took 30 mnt break,while the second wood cutter used to rest every 5 mnt an hour.Seth kept listening to the first wood cutter patiently.He then told the first wood cutter-do you really want to know that why i paid Rs 1.000($16) to you and Rs 2,000($32) to the second wood cutter? The first wood cutter said,’YES’! I want to know the reason.

Seth told him-you give me 5 trees wood in 12 frs,while he gives 10 trees in 8 hrs.I HAVE AN AGREEMENT WITH BOTH OF YOU FOR 5 TREES EVERY DAY AND NOT WORKING FOR 12hrs OR 8 hrs.

Would you like to know how your friend gave me 10 trees in Just 8 hrs? Yes,please tell me,sir,said the first wood cutter.The seth replied, when your friend was taking break for 5 mnt every hour,he was then actually sharpening the edge of the weapon(Kuladhi-as they call in village) and this gave him better ‘PRODUCTIVITY’ for cutting the trees

 

                                      MY MESSAGE TO YOU

 

Hours of hard work that you put in a job or business or for that matter in any other activity is not that important.

What really matter is – HOW SMARTLY YOU ALSO SHARPEN YOUR SKILL(eg TRAINING) AND USE IT FOR BETTER PRODUCTIVITY AND MORE EARNING.

SO,WHICH WAY YOU SHOULD BE WORKING?

OBVIOUSLY SMART WAY!!

Don’t be like Chained Elephants !! – unbelievable traits of chained elephants.

“None but ourselves can free our minds” – Bob Marley


Yes, I totally believe in the above proverb-Do you?

Once I was passing the elephants in my village. I suddenly stopped confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held  by only a small rope tied to their front leg.

No Chains! No cages!

It was obvious and you would agree with me that the elephants,at any time,could break away from these small rope’s bonds,but for some reason,they did not do so. Meanwhile,I saw a trainer or mahawat (as they are known in villages) nearby and asked him-why these splendid animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away?

“Well” he said,”when they are very young and much smaller,we use the same size of rope to tie them and,at that age,it is enough to hold them.As they grow up,they are conditioned to believe that they cannot break away.They believe,the rope can still hold them.So they never try to break free.”

This was really amazing and unbelievable,but,the reality was in front of me.These animals,who have the strength to lift gigantic weight,could easily and at any time break free from their bonds.

BUT BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED THEY COULD NOT, THEY WERE STUCK-SIGHT WHERE THEY WERE.

Like the elephants,many of us too go through our life hanging onto a belief that we cannot  or can never do something simply because,we believe we cannot do it or because we have failed at it once before.

          …MY MESSAGE TO YOU ALL

COMMON!! CHANGE YOUR MINDSET;CHANGE YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM.

BREAK FREE!

YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT YOUR CHAINS

                                      &

YOU WILL HAVE FREEDOM TO GAIN.

GOOD LUCK FRIENDS!!!
