Fortune favours brave and it also favours Prepared



We all have heard that fortune favours brave but I want to emphasize here that it also favours to those who are well prepared for action. Any plan will not be converted into a real goal unless you are well prepared for its execution. Don’t waste your precious time waiting for some opportunity to come to you instead you prepare yourself so meticulously that you can create opportunity. I will share one story with you. There were two woodcutter Mr. Dora & Mr. Jhon. They were good friends with equal capability. They were assigned job of making path through the jungle. Both of them started cutting woods in the jungle. Mr. Dora was able to cut the jungle 3 times more in same time what Mr. Jhon was able to cut. Seeing the great progress of his friend one day Mr. Jhon asked Mr. Dora “We both are working for same time, we both are dedicated towards our work and we both are also working hard. How come you are 3 times more productive that I am”. Mr. dora said” Look my friend, everything is common between you and me but the only difference is that after cutting woods for 2 hours I take time out and prepare myself for the next round. I take time out and sharpen my axe”. Now, I am asking one question to you how many times you take out time from your routine work and do some value addition in yourself. Studies show that whatever learning happens in a professional life is during the first 4- 5 years. Therefore, my friends if you want to be in the top 5%, you will have to take some time out from your profession and prepare yourself to enable fortune favours you. You do it for few months and see the result yourself.

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

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…
