Mantra for Success

Are you looking for more than just a better career?
Are you looking for a profession, one that aligns with your skills, interests, values, and plans for the future? If so, be prepared to face a lot of reflection and planning.

It’s important to take a serious view at the possibilities and outcomes before you jump to decide for your future career. Well most of us believe that it is one’s destiny to the type of career we have. Well one cannot altogether ignore this but what ever is in our hands is most of the time underestimated. If we concentrate on our performance then almost certainly we would always be traveling on the road to success.

Key ingredients for a successful career are: 

•    Decision making
•    Planning
•    Determination.
•    Discipline
•    Stability

 Decision Making:

In simple words “every act of ours bears some result” i.e. has its own pros and cons. The most important thing is deciding carefully and after a lot of self analyzing. A wrong decision will never bring the desired right results. Most of the failures we meet in life are because of a wrong decision.

For instance you opt for science in class 12th despite of your lack of interest under parent or peer pressure, you might end up in just managing to pass your 12th exam but you won’t be able to perform better in future.

Now when such situation arises as early as after class 10th  then it  becomes the responsibility of the teachers and the parents to play vital role in helping the child with the decision making.

Planning:

This is another important tool that plays a key role in any successful venture. For lack of proper planning one usually comes across the unexpected results and events. Needless to say that any planned work or effort does not fail, but even it fails for some reasons then definitely the damage is not that great. For e.g. if an aspirant sets out to prepare for the IIT/JEE exam at the right time with good planning and he is unable to secure good rank in the exam, then he stands the good amount of  chances of doing well in the other related exams.

Besides reducing the risk of damage good planning also saves lot of resources such as time and money to a great extent. For e.g. if you plan well before preparing for any exam the chances of success are quite high. Thus success in one attempt saves your time spend for preparing for the second attempt.

Determination:

Buddha to Jesus, Alexander to Mahatma Gandhi including the likes of Einstein and Newton stood tall for nothing other than there towering determination to achieve what they wanted at all cost. It won’t be wrong to say that determination is the carrier of success.

Discipline:

All your effort can go in vain if you lack discipline in life. Not only your effort but you may end up as a failure in life. For e.g. if you decide on to become a doctor and start your preparation with good planning but you are not disciplined enough to put in the required number hours to study then probably all your effort may crumble in a short span of time.

Stability:

This is another variable that should find a place in ones personality necessarily. All your activities that form part of your plan or the road to success need to perform consistently in order to achieve the desired results. For e.g. if your planning says you need to put in daily five hours to your studies then missing out couple of days to that end means that your decision making, planning and discipline are at a receiving end.
