This one thing can make you rich and prosperous

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’   I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…

Give 100% to your dream

A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…

Do this to enhance you efficiency and productivity

I am fascinated about goals setting and achieving them. Setting goals-long term as well as short term goals, give control over my life. My life has completely changed once I learnt the scientific method of goal setting. A lot of good work has been done on this subject and well-written literature on this subject is also available on the net. Though I am an amateur runner but am passionate about endurance running. One day like any other day I got up early and went for my running practice. I was in loose full track pant and t-shirt. I usually carry my mobile while running. I put my mobile in one of the pockets of my track pant. I carry the mobile to track my pace during practice. But that day whenever I tried to increase my pace the mobile would start hanging up and down due to the loose track pant. I really got irritated. However, I learnt a great lesson on that day. ‘One may be an amateur, but he or she must act as a professional’ I got immensely benefitted with this approach, and the wh…

Simple act to be master in your chosen field

Take simple steps, unlearn things that are not necessary and learn things that are important to achieve goals and to make life simpler. There are many things which we have learnt. Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind. If such is the situation we must unlearn certain things. So, we can create space to learn new things that are essential for us to achieve a larger purpose. We must keep in mind the process and act through which we master the things is simple. If we make the laws and process of life simple, it would be easy to live a simple life and achieve more in life. A few days ago I was watching a videotape. I heard a speaker saying interesting thing about Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest batsman in the history of cricket and Bharat Ratna awardee. The speaker said t…

Daily contribution to your goals

Power of daily contribution in the pursuit of goals, I could realize while I was preparing for my first marathon. At the same time, I was also working on my first book. During the process I could realize-I won’t say I have discovered something amazing as all the successful people do it- that only game changer in your accomplishment of a goal is a daily contribution.  Once we realize it, we will find that any goal, however difficult it seems, is achievable.  A castle cannot be built in a day. It was true hundreds of years ago, it is true today. It can be built brick by brick. Good habit or bad habit is a result of our daily routine. Bad health is a result of poor diet, lack of physical activity over a period of many years. Building good health also requires time. But we look for a quick fix, when it does not work or does not last long, we quit. It is the same with a financial condition, over a long period of time we pile up debts, erode our savings and investments. But when we want to b…

There is always a hope

We all know that one of the qualities we need to succeed in life is Positive attitude. When everything goes well, keeping ourselves positive and optimistic is not a big deal. But the real challenge and test of our mettle are when nothing goes well. When nothing seems to be in control, when every action backfires, when it seems we are at the nadir of our life when there is no room to go down, then it is time to show, we are mentally tough, we are emotionally grown up, we are the powerhouse. We are the best creation of God. We have the ability to make our life significant. We have goals to achieve. This could all be possible only if we are optimistic. Let the situations shall be very difficult. We need to be optimistic anyhow. There is one permanent thing in life and that is change. Whatever tough and challenging the situation, it’s going to change, even if we don’t do anything, it’s going to change. We need to remain optimistic as there are things which only time has the answer. Only t…

Make monthly resolutions as you make yearly rsolutions

Like many people, I love making new resolutions. Today is the first day of a new month. Isn’t it exciting to make a new resolution for a month? But when I first thought of a monthly resolution my mind rejected it. One month, only one month what could i achieve in one month. I set a goal of losing weight of 10-12 pounds, year after year without ever achieving it. How is it possible to do it in one month? My dream list includes the purchase of a new home, a new car; it includes exotic vacations with my family. My dream list also includes substantial built of a portfolio in paper assets; it also includes completing my first book. It also includes running ultra-marathon. There are career-related dreams. All these long term dreams would take at least many months together if not years, hence it does not count a month. This was my thinking earlier but now, when I set daily goals, a month provides me with an opportunity to 30 times more than my daily time available to work on my dreams. There…
