Definite Purpose of Life:

One should have a high desirable, outstanding goal and keep it ever before you. You can have many non-conflicting goals, which help you to reach your major definite purpose of life. It is advisable to have immediate, intermediate, and distant objectives. Identify your desire with a definite plan for carrying out and achieving your objectives. Put your plan into action at once.

Act Now:

The meaning of life is action. You are known by your actions. You are remembered by your actions. The generations today know Gandhi as a man of peace, Einstein as a man of science, Henry Ford as a man who built a huge fortune. When we remember a man, it is the picture of his actions that come to our mind.
If the meaning of life is action, its natural corollary is you have to act. You have to keep doing the action that is your chosen profession or vocation. There is no escape from it. The very foundation of the Gita is action. Actions can be fruitful or go futile. The ‘Gita’ also talks of attitude. Your attitude towards your action determines the worth of your action. Action without lust, attachment, greed or ego is the best way to perform an action.
A genius is 99 per cent perspiration & one percent inspiration.
            ........ Albert Einstein


Some of us who believe solely in luck or inspiration are adamant in our belief. The fact is nothing comes without toil and hard work. Even Einstein, the greatest scientist of our times strongly felt the value of perspiration. Nothing substantial has ever been arrived at or achieved without perspiration.

Persistence And Determination

Nothing will take the place of persistence.
Talent will not: Nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.
Genius will not: Unrewarded genius is a proverb only.
Education will not: The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence & determination alone are omnipotent.

……Calvin Cooli


Resistence is the power to say ‘No’ to a task, comes what may. Persistence is the ability to persevere under thick and thin alike.

You cannot persist in your efforts, if you do not have a single minded determination. People with single minded determination and persistence are too busy. They do not have time for anything else apart from what is their immediate goal or object.


Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

......Henry David Thoreau
.

If you have a goal or target, a plan of action with single minded determination and persistence, the success is yours. If you have an unwavering faith in yourself and your ability to achieve your goal, it will be easy for you to develop the character of persistence.

Single minded determination calls for mental discipline. Such a discipline is not acquired overnight but comes through strenuous effort inculcated over a long period of time. Single minded determination is a positive catalyst for hard worker. You cannot work hard if you determination is wavering.

Single minded determination or will reflects your thought process. Understanding your thought process and applying it to achieve your goal is the key to success.


Belief & Faith

If you do not believe you will be successful, you will never be. If you doubt yourself and your abilities, the success steps you take will be hesitant and the measures will be half hearted. Belief and faith can do wonders, it can to miracles.

Do you know about faith-healers? Or have you heard about them? Some people are capable of healing themselves merely because they have an unwavering faith in the curative powers of belief system. There are even those people who can heal other.


If You Think

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t!

If you like to win, but think you can’t. It’s almost a clinch you wan’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you are lost. For out in the world we find.

Success begins with a fellow’s will; It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are, you’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be a sure of yourself before. You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger and faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins……

Is the man who thinks he can.


SUCCESS : A REPEATED FAILURE WITHOUT QUITING

Ø This man failed in business at the age of 21: was defeated in a legislative race at age 22: failed again in business at age 24: had his sweetheart die when he was age 26: had a nervous breakdown at age 27: lost a congressional race at age 34: lost a senatorial race at age 45: failed in an effort to become vice-president at age 47: lost a senatorial race at age 49: and was elected president of the United States at age 52. The man was Abraham Lincoln.

Ø In 1913, Lee De Forest, inventor of the triode tube, was charged by the district attorney for using fraudulent means to mislead the public into buying stocks in his company by claiming that he could transmit the human voice across the Atlantic. He was publicly humiliated.

Ø Colonel Sanders, at age 65, had assets of a beat-up car and a $ 100 check from social security. He realized he had to do something to improve his position. He remembered his fried chicken recipe and went out selling. How many doors did he have to knock on before he got his first order? It is estimated that he had knocked on more than a thousand doors before he got his first order.

Ø As a young cartoonist, Walt Disney faced many rejections from Newspaper editors who said he had mo talent. One day a minister at a church hired him to draw some cartoons. Disney was working out of a small rodent infested shed near the church. Seeing a small mouse inspired him to draw a new cartoon. That was the start of the Mickey Mouse.

Ø One day a partially deaf four-year old child came home with a note in his pocket from his teacher, “your Tommy is too stupid to learn, get him out of the school.” His mother read the note and answered “My Tommy is not too stupid to learn, I will teach him myself.” and that Tommy grew up to be the great Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison had only three months of formal schooling.
FAILURES, BEFORE SUCCESS

Ø Amitabh Bacchan flopped in series of first 12 to 14 movies before emerging as a superstar in Deewar and Zanjeer.
Ø Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times before he could find a highly resistant filamen for his electric bulb.
Ø Dhirubhai Ambani worked as a small time employee at a gasoline station in Dubai.
Ø Narayanmurthy started off along with two partners, a small room and a two wheeler.
Ø Sunil Mittal of Airtel began with a capital of not more than Rs. 10.000 sometimes in the early 80s lent to him, by his father.
Ø Roy brothers of Sahara fame started with a meager capital of less than Rs. 2500/ sometimes in the late 70s.
Ø Earnest Hemingway had his manuscript rejected almost by every publisher he approached in his initial literary career. He went on to become the highest paid author of America at one time.
Ø Mohammad Ghori attacked India sixteen times losing the battle every time before being victorious in his seventeenth attempt.
Ø Henry Ford was broke at the age of 40.
Ø Lee Iacocca was fired by Henry Ford II at the age of 54.
Ø Young Beethoven was told that he had no talent for music, but he gave some of the best music to the world.

Positive Attitude & Success

Positive attitude gives hope. Positive attitude reassures you. Positive attitude is a mental trait of seeing light in darkness. If you are a person of positive temperament you always see the brighter side of life. Why is it that?

Ø When most of the people say the glass is half empty, a few people emphasize that that the glass is half full.



Ø When a task is assigned to two persons, one of them says it is difficult and cannot be done, the other person says it requires more effort and can be done.

Ø When the weary army of Alexander the great refused to move beyond Indus, saying fighting any longer was an Impossible task, Alexander said Indus can be crossed and the kings beyond Indus can be defeated and he did.

Ø When Napolean command his army to cross Alps, they said “it was impossible” Napolean replied, “the word impossible is written in the dictionary of fools.”

The answer is positive attitude.

There is an intimate link between success & positive attitude. No one who has ever been successful has in his journey ever said ‘quite’. No one who has ever been successful has ever lost hope in his journey to success. No one who has said ‘impossible’ to a task has ever gone on to make it possible. But the contrary is often true:

If you say, I can, you will
If you say, I cannot, you will never

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare;
It is because we do not dare that they are difficult
…..Seneca

Positive attitude can do wonders. It can make possible what is seemingly impossible for the others. Positive attitude is the seed out of which positive traits, which are essential for success, sprout forth. It is the positive attitude again which waters and feeds the saplings of positive traits.

Your mind is a machine of thoughts and ideas. If you do not fill it up with positive, inspiring and motivating thoughts, it will turn into a jungle of negative thoughts. Your mind is beautiful garden, if you don’t plant and nurture sapling of flowering plants in it, it will turn into mess of wild creepers, bushes and thorny plants.

You mind is a huge factory charming out ideas & thoughts. You are the supervisor of this factory. You have two foremen at your beck and call. They are Mr. Yes and Mr. No. as soon as your factory produces a great idea; you invite both the foreman to discuss its execution. Both of them as their names go, suggest accordingly. It is up to you to follow their advice or not. If you begin to follow the advice of ‘Mr No’ more and more, you begin to develop a negative attitude. A time comes when ‘Mr.No.’ has taken a complete control over your thought process. By and by a time comes then even before you could let a great idea seep within you, ‘Mr No’ comes and thrashes it out of shape, so much so that ‘Mr No’ takes a complete control over you.

If success is what something really attracts you, and sure it does everyone, then you must make a deep association with ‘Mr. Yes’, your foreman.

Dream & Vision

Imagination is everything.
If we can imagine a future, we can create it,
if we can create that future, other will live in it.
That is the essence of success.

Dream is the stuff reality is made of. The message of our President A.P.J. Kalam to children is that they must dream if they want to be successful.

If you have no dream, you not looking forward to anything. Therefore you cannot be successful. Nationalists like Gandhi and Nehru had the dream of a future India. They had the visions of society, polity, economy and constitution that an independent India would have. It was this vision or dream they were working for.

Dream particles and the real ones are not different, when the dream is lively and vivid. The Hindu mythology calls the universe a great cosmic dream of the creator.

When you have a lively vision or dream, you are a creator on way to creation. Let this dream persist. Let your vision grow stronger and stronger each moment of the day. And then one day you will realize your dream has turned into a reality. You may not be surprised by it, but the others will be.

Do not confuse dreams with day-dreams. Day-dreaming is idling. Day dreams lull you into inaction. But dreams are different.

Dream energizes you to activity
Dream strengthens your belief system
Dream adds to your confidence
Dreams puts a goal before you

Therefore, one must not just dream, but make the dream colorful and vivid. If possible, a picture of your dream that you wish to get or attain should be hung in your living room. To make your dream lively:

Remind yourself of your dream constantly
See the picture of your dream everyday
See your dream as the first thing when you get up in the morning
See your dream as the last thing when you go to sleep in the night.

In other words make your dream a living part of your consciousness. Make it the part of your sub consciousness too.

A NEW LEVEL OF THINKING

Stephen covey in his illustrious book Seven Habits of Highly Effective People speaks about the new level of thinking which is principle-centered, character-based, inside-out approach to personal and interpersonal and interpersonal effectiveness.

Inside-out means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self-with your paradigms, your character, and your motives.

It says if you want to have a happy marriage, be the kind of person who generates positive energy and side step negative energy rather than empowering it. If you want to have a more pleasant, cooperative teenager, be a more understanding, empathetic, consistent loving parent. If you want to be trusted, be trustworthy. If you want the secondary greatness recognized talent, focus first on primary greatness of character.

The inside-out approach says that private victories precede public victories, that making and keeping promises to ourselves precedes making and keeping promises to the others. It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves. It must always be the Positive Character ahead of Positive Personality.
