Secret of Success - Being at cause

Most people who lead their life just take the life as it comes. It is a good practice to an extent about not being worried, but there is certainly a way in which every one should lead their life. Most people lives their lives catering to the whims, fancies, desires of other people. They lead a life for others, i mean they lead a life in comparing their life to others. Though it is comparisons that have helped man to grow, yet un necessary comparisons can damage the happiness of one's life. Leading a life based on one's strength is very much essential. Only few people are decisive in creating what they want in life and take responsibility for whatever they achieve, both good and bad. These people lead their life for a cause. They know what they want in their life. They see the world as a place of opportunity and move forward in achieving their goal. It necessarily doesnt mean they dont face problems, yet they know how to handle the situation, come out with alternatives & emerge successful.

Being at cause means you have choices in your life - you can choose what is best for you. That is, you consider the consequences of your actions on others, while not taking responsibility for their emotional well-being. Believing you are responsible for the emotional well-being of someone else places a heavy burden upon you and can cause a great deal of stress.
Where as reactive people donot take responsibilities. They blame the situation for their bad phase. They blame their co-workers, their partners, their partners or their other half for not being able to achieve their dream.
Even i had been a reactive person, i had blamed my parents for me not having pursued ambitions of mine. Its only later i realised the mistake i had committed. It was not my parents, it was just that i was not stubborn or clear about what i had want and had shifted the responsibility on my parents.
If you tend to continue to be a reactive person, you tend to build up stress, fear and diffidence.
Each day when you go to bed, its very much essential to just analyse how you had spent the day.
Each morning when you wake up, the choice is left to you to decide on how you want your day to be.

Secret of Success - Responsibilities

I had written about looking at problems as an opportunity. To have that attitude one must start taking responsibilities. Responsibilities both for success and failure. You need the will power.
In my life there have been many instances where i had successfully used this secret in a positive way. When ever i had attempted to solve the problem i had get set with the mind set that i would do my best, rather than just attempting to solve. When you Just attempt or when you just give a try, as days pass, you loose the interest and the problem ends up just a problem.

So if you are some one who is just going to give out a reason that "i have tried a lot" its an incomplete sentence and incomplete act. No job is complete unless it is 100 %.
Lets take a software project and assume the team has completed 99% of the project, but the remaining 1% which has to be completed may lead to lot of bugs. The remaining 1% may cause problems to the rest 99% code and design. Can you feel the difference? Own the responsibility, once you own it naturally you would strive hard for success. No one likes themselves to be a failure.

Secret of Success-your friends

"Tell me about your friend & i would tell about you'" is a very famous quote.
Most of you would agree on it, dont you? You are what you are by your surroundings.
Your surroundings influence you a lot.
Hence if you wish to succeed, if success is what you are looking in your life,
the secret of success is nothing but to keep your surrounding with successful people.
Let your friends be the one who are successful in their respective fields.
If your friend is a successful person, he would tend to help you in realising your objectives. What i mean here, he would know what it requires to be successful and would share with you the things that you would do need to do to reach the goal.
Let's assume he is a failure, he would tend to look things in negative.
He would advise you not to venture in areas that are risky, even if you have made a very extensive plan.
Thats why it is generally remarked "its only Success that breeds success".
More over the surrounding affects your mindset. This has been proven scientifically by numerous studies. You act and think just like your surrounding.
A typical story to be recalled here is the Jungle Book, where Mougli just doesnt even know about the humans.Its just not a story, it is the reality.
The power of Mind is such that... It can be moulded the way it wants to.

Thats Priceless

Martin wakes up at home with a huge hangover.
He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glassof water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in frontof him, all clean and pressed.
Martin looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order,spotless, clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins andnotices a note on the table. "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love You!"
So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.
Martin asks,"Son, what happened last night?" His son says, "Well, you came home around 3 AM, drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."
Confused, Martin asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waitingfor me? I should expect a big quarrel with her!"
His son replies, "Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your clothes n shoes off, you said, "Lady leave me alone!I'm married!"
Self-induced hangover -- $100.00
Broken furniture -- $2,000.00
Breakfast -- $10.00
Saying The Right Thing While Drunk - thats PRICELESS

BuckleUpNow-Secret of Success-3

Now Just think about yourself.
Weren't there situations in your life, were you had come up with a great idea,
you went and shared it to your friend. Probably he would have said we
didn't have the necessary skills or resources to achieve them.
If not your friend, it could have been your boss, if you are in the area of film making, then it might be your producer who would have rejected the idea...
Successful people are one's who have stood firm with their ideas, facing all the tribulations and emerging out successful. How is it possible?
Its all about Self-Confidence, self-Belief. The Belief that You can achieve.....

BuckleUpNow-Secret of Success-2

Yesterday i had started writing about secret to success. Today i am just going to share you a list of few personalities whose Self-confidence was very badly dented and yet they have come back strongly to prove the world whom they are.

Beethoven was considered a hopeless composer by his teacher.
Thomas Edison's was considered too stupid to learn anything by his teachers
Leo Tolstoy, the author of War & Peace, was told he couldn't learn
Albert Einstein was considered mentally slow because he couldnt speak till the age of 4, and didn't read until he was 7.

The Super Star of Indian Cinema-Amitabh Bachan was rejected in his voice test conducted by All India Radio. Similarly for Actor Vikram it took 10 + years to prove his mettle in the Tamil Film industry. Today he commands a great respect.

Self-Confidence is one of the factors that has kept them Mentally Strong...

Secret of Success - self confidence

If you wish to achieve success in any area of life, the secret of success is nothing but self confidence. If you have observed very carefully self confidence is highly sensitive to our experiences and has a relatively proportional effect on the things you do. The higher your self confidence the better the success, the lower the self confidence greater the chances of failure.
This you might have observed yourself in your schooling days when you are approaching an exam, probably in the subject of your interest, you would never have the fear to take up the examination. Its just because your self confidence is really high. You automatically come out with flying colors. while the subjects that you hate, your self confidence is lying low and hence you just feel you would be greatly relived if the exam gets over. You probably end up with lesser marks. This is applicable in every aspect of life taking into account your sports, a job interview, executing a project & even your personal life...
