We have always come through the stories of every successful personality. How their journey to success had its own different twist and turns, someone had a mentor, someone was a lone wolf. I personally get names of peoples like Mukesh Ambani, Elon musk, Mark Zukerberg, Jef Bezos, Bill Gates ,Steve Jobs and Jordan Belfort in my mind when I think about being successful, there are many others too. We all are aware how these peoples have made their reputation in the world. All this happened because they had that mind, that courage, that passion in themselves to be at the position they are.
“Success doesn’t come overnight, you have to work hard and believe in yourself. You should always have a back-up plan to continue with if things go wrong.”
The names I mentioned earlier, everyone have work hard in their own fields, Ambani’s have the biggest exports in India and now probably have hand in every sectors from Petroleum to Entertainment, from telecom to owning a cricket and a football team.
Elon Musk is the man behind the era of technology and space research, who is also a CEO of world known car manufacturing company TESLA. His company NEURALINK is now working on how human brain can perform more efficiently.
Mark Zukerberg the man who made Facebook, the application and website which is used peoples worldwide to connect with their family and friend, facebook which now owns popular sites like Instagram and whatsapp.
Jeff Bezos the man who made shopping easy and products deliver at door step by bringing Amazon to us.
Bill Gates and Steve Jobs who brought convenience in our palm, laps and homes by bringing the Windows and the IOS.
Jordan Belfort the wolf of the Wall Street. Who even have a movie on him, which showed that when you have that passion in yourself no conditions can stop you and that person made himself a brand in the stock market. Well his stock market career was drowned illegal but who said we cannot learn from him that man made millions and millions just buy having a solid sales strategies.
Well we have discussed a lot about the successful personalities and their own specific kingdom. Now let’s talk about how they or anyone who wants to make them one of a kind works and never lose up a hope. There are certain ways, in this blog from which will at least you get some points to remember in your life time.
Firstly start with critical work, Elon says “Focus on signal over the noise. Don’t waste time on stuff that doesn’t actually make things better.”
Find your most important task (MIT) for the day and tackle it fort. Your MIT should be the one thing that creates the most impact on your work. To find your MIT you can use the 80/20 rule and figure out what’s crucial.
Secondly have a feedback loop, “I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” – Elon Musk
Always seek for feedbacks and try to seek for the negative one. It might be hurtful at first, but you will end up getting a lot more out of it. Gather feedback about your particular product and do every possible way to rectify them.
Getting feedbacks and rectifying the issues is crucial, just because not doing this many companies have became oblivion now days.
Thirdly start to have Batch work, multi-tasking always can be harmful but when there is shortage of time you have to, divide your works in different lots/batches and perform them, make sure you take out those works in batches which are easy to do and can be handled nicely.
Fourth scheduling , well running companies or even you are in your high school, scheduling plays a vital role, it may sound monotonous doing thing every day with a same pace but consistency really matters in life.
Fifth, Don’t under estimate the impact you can have on the world, “I want to put ding in the universe.” – Steve Jobs.
Steve jobs is that one person you brought up revolution in the world of mobile phone, after the first ever iphone was launched, he showed the world what kind of strength they have in their company. Then afterwards they brought a tons of perfection in their every product.
Sixth Guard your secrets, always make partners, hire employees and work for clients who can guard your secrets, how your company works have only to be known by you and your company.
Seventh failure is good, every one fails, everyone tries to be in a top list but can’t. No matter how many times you fail you don’t have to loose hope of being successful. You can never be truly hungry until you haven’t eaten for days. In same light, you can never crave success until you’ve been dealt you own share of defeat.
“No matter what happened to you in the past, you are not your past, you are the resources and the capabilities you glean from it. And that is the basic for all changes.” – Jordan Belfort
Eight Take risk, “Success doesn’t come without getting your hands dirty.”
No successful man in this world ever played safe and became millionaire or billionaire, they took risk sometimes for them it was drastic for them to be on cliff were everything was going to end but they come up with the courage to start it all again.
“True entrepreneurship comes from risk taking.”- Dhirubhai Ambani
Ninth buckle up for long run, success isn’t something which will stay for a while and then flew away, it is the result of hard work and sacrifice you did in the long run. So you have to put up your shoes and get ready for a marathon, marathon of your personal and professional success.
Last but not the least ‘never regret’ if you are in a start-up or a well settled business man regretting won’t be a choice for you because all it will do is make you vulnerable, you may took some decision in your personal and private life and they have gone worse but being their and thinking, ‘what if I had done this’ will again make you in the same situation in the past, instead of that learn from them and make yourself strong from before.
Summing it all up, you never have to rush in your life, take your decision wisely. You will always have someone to discuss with. Just thinking of being successful will not give you success but working for it will. Hope this blog have helped you to think what to do or not.
