765 Ways to Win: Love everything you do and jump in with both feet. Remind yourself that you are doing a certain thing because you wanted to do it badly, because it is something that you enjoy doing or something that is going to take you to your next level of achievement, progress, improvement and excellence.

765 Ways to Win: Love everything you do and jump in with both feet

Once you honestly love what you are doing, you will find that you will continue to enjoy the progress you achieve each day, week and month – no matter how long the duration. You will not get tired of what you are doing, because it is something you enjoy doing – sincerely. One can cite many examples of people who inspire us to do more in our life to achieve our defined chief dreams. Love everything what you do unconditionally then you will never get tired. Bon-jovi: Everyone believes that the bond between them was forged early on and they were focused on what they actually loved it.

Sachin Tendulkar: He is the only cricketer to accomplish the feat of scoring a hundred centuries in international cricket which includes 49 ODI and 51 Test centuries. How can you connect your own DOTs!? You need to stimulate your own awareness of leadership in all aspects to connect your DOTs.

How can you connect your own DOTs!?

Top seven DOTs most of the greatest leaders mastered them and connected them flawlessly U TOO can do it. That means being aware when it is required in a given situation and aware when it is lacking. It is also entails an awareness of the changing requirements of your own dream which will deepen your awareness of the importance of good leadership if free men and women are co-operative effectively. You need to establish your understanding of the principles, requirements and /or functions of leadership. + Flip It. Why past is brilliant than present? Negative peer pressure is a thorn in your side. Peer pressure is the influence exerted by a peer group, encouraging individuals to change their attitude, values, or behaviors in order to conform to group norms.

Negative peer pressure is a thorn in your side

Peer pressure is most common when we get into this trap because of a lack of maturity to handle pressure from friends, colleagues and society. Also we behave negatively towards those who are doing good, earning money, getting promoted and what not. 'True victory means complete control over the sense of organs' Peer pressure can also have positive effects when people are pressured toward positive behavior, such as volunteering for charity or excelling in academics or athletics, by their peers. Most of the peers influence each other in negative ways. Plan Less Monkey, Gutless Image, Human Less King and Queenless Hive. Plan less monkey: A monkey which puts its paw into the narrow neck of a jug, and having seized a handful of nuts will not open its fist for fear of losing what it holds, and therefore perishes.

Gut less image: People play at generosity of spirit and all that stuff. Such generosity of spirit and sensibility are like the nobility and sensibility of a lady who faints when she sees a chick being killed: she is so kind-hearted that she can’t look at blood, but enjoys eating the chicken served up with Indian spice and sauce. Only for the purpose of securing a magnified image, the so called leader’s management and habit of winning coinciding with people’s inclinations, allurement by the grandeur of the preparations, and the expenditure those preparations and the need of obtaining advantages to compensate for that expenditure and the intoxicating culture. Human less King: That is, discipline, idleness, ignorance, cruelty, corruption, and drunkenness. Between U & Ur dream: 7 habits, 6 practices & 5 techniques.

The foundation for a person’s success boils down to his/her habits.

Between U & Ur dream: 7 habits, 6 practices & 5 techniques

So the fundamental truth is discipline that is followed as a result of one’s habits, practices and techniques – can take a person to hilltop or drive the person deep into the valley of failure. When I say discipline is the integral to success. I cannot stress enough on the discipline of the ones that leaders follow in their very own life, which positively helped them establish their identity as a person, excel in the various endeavors they undertook in their journey through life and finally, enabled them to win and achieve many ambitious goals. I have therefore established a practical approach, which when implemented as a discipline – can help any individual to learn to excel, to win and to achieve.

Winners put their shoulder to the wheel. The fountain of wisdom drops. Greed and over ambition is a dead loss. Greed for the unearned is bad, but if you only want what you deserve, that too is greed, because when you do not get what you deserve, you feel a righteous sense of indignation.

Greed and over ambition is a dead loss

A company had 1000 units order and planning, but boss wanted more 2000+ units, which is double. When the company increased capacity and resources, competitor cropped up and eaten away the potential orders. End of the year company left with lot of inventory and huge wasteful resources and a huge loss, which is like killing the goose that lays golden eggs. Greed is ‘an overwhelming desire to have more of something such as money than is actually needed.’ We want more because we aspire for a better quality of life, and we do not want to worry about not having. Marcus Licinius Crassus (115 BC - 53 BC): While Marcus Crassus was still a young man, he became obsessed with wealth which became the main feature of his character. William H. A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what ships were built for. They find ways to find others mistakes like a bull in a china shop. So that they can be released and procrastinate in the mist of chaos and uncertainty every time they find others mistakes so that they can escape from the pain and the acceptance of their own failure.

They find ways to find others mistakes like a bull in a china shop

The easier way is to point fingers at others and play the blame game. These people are very much visible with egoistic messages and, communication thinking that whole issue and/or problem is because of all other functions, people, situations and they think that they are smart in the whole world and always harping on past glory, which no one had witnessed. Most of the time they abuse others, unhappy, cynical, egoistic, self praising, and shrinking ownership when it comes to self delivery, and non-value added nature. The important issue is that they procrastinate on their personal growth as well.

Similarly, in our daily lives, when we face any challenges or failures and we choose to escape from the reality or ignore the reality, it stops our growth in professionally and personally. Check your gut and thoughts. No matter how upset you get about the actions or behaviors of others, it will not change anything.

Check your gut and thoughts

The only person you have control over is yourself, and if you are so busy being upset over the behavior of someone else then you have just given that person power over you. Another person cannot make you upset without your consent. We always feel better looking at inferior people and snug as a bug in a rug. The spirit of “SME” Whether we have recession or the economy is booming, Subject Matter Expertise (SME) is the key to our success.

The spirit of “SME”

If we cannot keep upgrading our SME, we are not going to weather the storm and in good times we cannot take advantage of the available talents. We need to spend energy on effectively learning and evaluating our own skills and SME, however, without appropriate measurement methods, these efforts can be useless. SME is a collection of knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics that define effective performance for a job. SME is important and relevant way for executing the objectives that need to be developed both personally and professionally so as to be able to capitalize on our performance in life.

It was during that time the great naturalist Charles Darwin put forward his theories on “The survival of the fittest” and “The origin of species be means of natural selection”. The problem starts when your SME starts slipping away from you. Top ten stumbling blocks: Why you are not taking instantaneous action? Mavericks. Veeramachaneni Venkateswararao.

Top 22 steps - Risk HOTO

Dismantle fixed performance contracts. Negotiate better scope and terms. Nothing is standard and nothing is permanent unless parties to the contract, decision and agreement agree that the conditions are standard and fixed. Changes can always be made that suit the parties and result in more effective agreement. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Heroes in our minds. Most of the stupendous leaders do possess neither prominent physical appearance nor vigorous personality. What distinguishes them is the clarity of thought and persuasiveness of their dreams, the depth of their dedication, and the extent of their candidness to continually learning more. They do not ‘have the answer,’ yet they seem to instill self-belief in those around them that, together, ‘we can learn whatever we need to learn in order to achieve the outcome we truly craving.’ Leaders work to build up conceptual and communication skills. Start loving your steps, talent, actions and your dream. How one can ‘Stay hungry and Stay foolish’ ? Even if you have to fail, attempt something big so that you fail spectacularly.

‘Stay hungry, Stay foolish’ is what Steve jobs advised the graduating class of Stanford University in his commencement address to the class of 2005. And that is the spirit by which all the great dream chasers have lived. Why there is a LIMIT to grow? Independance. With a gentle execution, you can shake the world. In defining and driving our strategic objectives and targets from dream to reality, we need to link the details in terms of ‘what we need to do in order to realize the dream’ and then convert all the “WHATs” in terms of ‘how we will be converting that dream into a reality’.

Here’s what I suggest if we are really serious about awakening our inner self so that we begin to see stellar in our life. Barker wrote in 1993, ‘When a paradigm shifts, everyone goes back to zero’ and companies are being faced with this rule time and time again. When we move into a new age, a new race starts. Barker continues, ‘By zero, I mean that regardless of what position was with the old paradigm – number one in market share, leader in technology, best reputation – you are back at the starting line with the new paradigm.

Speak Your Mind is not an albatross around your neck. Hollow to Halo. People who do not love their country are losing the best part of their life. Follow the path of highest enjoyment and blow the lid off. A winning architect. Are you? Wilma was the seventeenth child of poor Negro domestic help. Her left leg has suffered a form of paralysis. Specialists told her mother that years of therapeutic massage might restore the use of the leg. For the next two years, Mrs. Rudolph, on her weekly day off, made a 90 mile round trip to the clinic. The other Six days, after arriving from work and preparing the family’s supper, she carefully massaged the wasted small leg until long after Wilma had fallen asleep.

After two years of such painstaking effort, Wilma could manage to hop for short distances. She tried harder and finally she got her reward – she made the team. In the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome Wilma Glodean Rudolph became the first American woman to win three gold medals in track and field during a single Olympic Games. Inability to distinguish between the vital and trivial will rock the boat.
