Success Principles in an Ever Changing World

 

We are living in an exciting time, with technologies that launch immediate changes and communication on a global scale. However, with these CDR_20160314_1118_portrait with john Originalcomes the complementary concepts of the intensity of competition and challenges that are often constant, complex and causing results that can be unpredictable. The dichotomy of existence then borders on whether we can retain the same standards of success in business or must we transition into a new paradigm. We must alter our attitudes from simply looking at a product or solution as an offering and instead, appeal to a passion and a purpose for people to follow the dream.

The beauty in the simplicity of some of the basic core values is also extended to the fact that they have stood the test of time. Success principles are less about business and more closely aligned with human nature and behavior. There is more to being connected than just the circuitry, we have entered a time that requires an elevation to a different level of attraction. Technologies may be added and our ability to adopt and adapt may be challenged, but the ultimate concept is that we are still dealing with people, and maintaining those levels toward and how we deal with humanity is the key to success.

Business ethics: two words that encompass an entire relationship of attitude with self, co-workers, partners and clients. It is a concept of existence, the methodology that follows true to every response and reaction. It is truth as well as accountability, ego and honesty.  Everything that is said, done and accomplished in writing as well as behind closed doors, is surrounded by the criteria that is set forth in a company’s ethical standards.

Remaining open-minded is a success principle that stands on its own and yet is an important factor that must be exemplified in a top down attitude. Fresh ideas, new ways of viewing and thinking, keeps everyone from becoming stagnant and encourages the attitudes that will keep a business competitive. Additionally, it requires that we sometimes remain on the edge of that which no one else would consider, the fringe of potential and possibly even a touch of crazy.

Quality and trust remain the mainstay as a company baseline. We have all heard of businesses that have been lost in scandal or fell prey to offering a ‘vapor’ product. Those that have retained the quality of their offerings combined with the trust of all participants, will have the ability to focus on the variations and complexities of change. Trust is the key word that is the center of existence. Once you are trusted, people will offer you their honor and respect.

Keeping up on everything new: This translates into the individual business vertical and also in business practices. New technologies bring about new ways of doing things as well as alternate visions. Being successful includes the ability to embrace the change that is upon them and adapt as an overall strategy. The concept goes beyond just what is pertinent or what might be useful, but expands to every aspect of ‘newness’. It explores areas that were never thought of before and takes the mind into territories of the undiscovered.

Thinking as if the box doesn’t exist: This takes the tradition of ‘outside of the box’ to an entire new level. A box expresses boundaries that can retain and reduce.  A successful business philosophy can introduce ideas, face challenges and competition with the understanding that those barriers simply don’t exist. Many of the most successful companies such as Apple discarded the ‘box’ concept to open the doors to allow the imagination to roam.

A key success principle must also incorporate an environment of positive, imaginative and creative people. This is an imperative to jump-start any new project, accept change in direction and maintain the core concept of business ethics. Constructive instead of destructive is a concentric attitude of being that can lead a company down the path of success while acknowledging change and direction.

Each of the principles can be outright as well as subtle, but to achieve the best that all can be, they should be understood and accepted as part of the business whole. Success in today’s business technology driven market envelops new aspects and directions that extends beyond and opens doors to the next generations.

Living life to the fullest

LiveMy father in law was simple straight forward honest man, full of life, happy and content.  Always enthusiastic and he was the one who knew how to live life to the fullest.  For him living life to the fullest was not about partying or drinking all night rather it meant enjoying doing things what he loved and finding little things that gave him joy. Even if it was just watching television with the family or taking a walk in a park with his friends for two hours every day.  Unfortunately, due to sudden heart attack he left for his heavenly abode earlier this month, leaving all of us in a state of shock and grief.

Since the time I attended his funeral, I have been thinking about his life, and how he lived     a life of significance. I learned how by doing random acts of kindness every single day he  made big impact into lives of others. He was a forward looking person with very strong values. His positive outlook, simplicity and no whining nature taught me invaluable life lessons and challenged me to think, how to live a life of significance, helping others and what is that I must do to attain contentment and happiness.  I recall him saying that you cannot be happy if you do not appreciate the things the way they are. He was always grateful and content with what he had. No regrets whatsoever. However, that does not mean that he was not ambitious, he had a fulfilling career at Nestle in India. He took good care of his family, provided rock solid foundation, values and best possible education to his children, made sure that his own parents were well attended to in their old age.

So the question is what is it like to be someone who lives life to the fullest? Here are the five lessons that I learned from his life:-

Money can’t buy you happiness

You need to live a life with meaning, and you do not need money in order to bring that meaning. Life is truly beautiful, if you just keep money aside for one moment and focus on giving more that acquiring in your life.

Find joy in everything you do

When you are able to appreciate minor things, you can achieve greater levels of happiness and satisfaction. It is never too difficult to be thankful for a little smile, small gift, or minor compliment. Being grateful instills positive thoughts and you can have an entirely different perspective of your life only if you learn to count your blessings, notice minute joys, and acknowledge everything that you have.   

Find Good in All Circumstances:

Circumstances are neither bad nor good, it is your response to those circumstances. If you have a positive approach, you can manage to obtain some benefit even from the most terrible situations.

Train your mind that all is well

Learn to develop the right mindset, you can be happy now, without changing anything else. You don’t need to wait until you’ve changed everything and made your life perfect before you’re happy. Do not waste your time and energy complaining or criticizing other. It will lead to unwanted stress that affects your health, allow others to live their life, leave them alone. Don’t try to please everyone. Instead of criticizing person, ask yourself, what is good about this person?

Empathy is good, action is better 

Having an empathic nature, and to act upon, allows you to cultivate better relationships around us, and in the process enjoy life a bit more. Since it is a selfless act, it also has the power to transform your life as well as the life of other people around you. This simple act can change the way you think and behave, and will encourage you to step outside of your own thoughts and feelings to be able to have a larger perspective on life.

Always Believe in Yourself

Always believe in yourself

Always Believe in Yourself

As children we embark on every challenge, bold and brash, with the thought that we are invincible. Everything is new and all is exciting as we discover and expand our potentials. We delve outside the realms of possibility and take off for quests unknown, and in its innocence we find the heart and soul of creativity, the very pulse of those with vision. This is the center of knowing, the belief in ourselves that allows a dream to become reality.

As we mature, there may be those that cannot or will not understand the road of the seeker or the path of the dreamer. They may place obstacles in the way, doubt in your mind, and make attempts to bring you closer to their realm.  Their world is black and white, without the colors that create, that are necessary for you to exist. Don’t buy into their world of boundaries and walls, instead trust in yourself.

All aspects of life, whether personal or business, are intertwined in the same postulations of being. Both require enhanced thinking, survival and success that can only be found when you stretch out your wings and pursue what you feel.  Ambition is not contained in a fortress, but is open and free to the world. Belief is the first venture, the next step, and then the flight.

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”  Mahatma Gandhi

Think of those that have dared to dream, to be more than just the norm; they have been called visionaries and even crazy; never quite fitting inside the standards set for all. These are the people that think differently enough, that they have actually changed the world. There is genius in the dreaming and brilliance in achieving more, and these are the people that believed in themselves, and refused to be ignored.

Take pride in your own banner, think thoughts that stray from the crowd. Learn the lessons when things don’t work out as planned and use them for your new directions. Always believe in your inner voice that is prodding and pushing you on, because it is in this that you will experience the adventure and achieve what others do not see.

When you find yourself surrounded by those with limitations, imposing their will to make you fit. You will need to step outside their sphere and make decisions that are totally your own. Believing in yourself sometimes means leaving them behind and moving to a different sound. It is the music that you hear that will allow you to grow and the belief that you know when it’s right.

Be inspired by the impossible, look outside the walls of the unsure. Be the muse that sets about motion, change inaccessible to be in your reach; don’t let anyone set your boundaries, achieve the ambition that is your dream. We have but one life to live on this earth, set your own course for destiny and most of all, believe.

Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.

Exploring Education of the Heart

Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.

Exploring Education of the Heart

Aristotle wrote, “Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.” What does that mean to you? Are you heart intelligent? You may be unaware that any type of education is not good enough. You’ve heard sayings like these before: follow your heart, speak from your heart, trust with your heart. This is exactly what Aristotle is talking about in this quote. He taught that the heart was the center of the body. In fact, he believed that the heart was the true “center” of the human body, and that the brain was not. Which of these organs do you follow the most as you explore your education and experiences?

Start With Your Individual Heart

The first area to explore in heart intelligence is the individual’s heart. Are you true to your own desires and needs?

  • Do you connect with the energy that comes from your emotions? Why do you have the emotions you have in various situations?
  • Are you aware of your thoughts and feelings? Do you know what your longings are and why they are present?
  • Do you feel alive and present when you are connected to your true passions?
  • Are you able to sit and contemplate each of the emotions you have and truly allow it to happen without labeling it wrong or right?

Consider the Relationship Heart Intelligence

Now, take a look at a few other ways to learn with your heart.

  • Do you allow your heart to guide you to the things you want? When creating goals or making decisions, does your heart lead your decisions?
  • Do you make decisions that feel right? You may think they are right, but do they feel right?
  • Do you accept others and not try to fix them or change them?
  • Do you connect to your future? Do you see your future and focus on it to ensure it comes to pass?
  • Do you take steps to move beyond challenges and resistance by seeing and feeling the best steps forward?

Listening to your heart is not just about personal relationships and daily life. It impacts your health and your business life as well. When you learn and grow based on your heart and your head, you can lead a more fulfilled life that you control. In short, if you want to live a different life or you wish to control the outcome of your life, you need to learn and grow from the heart.

Leadership Lessons That I Learned From My Mother

We make many transitions in life, from home to school and relationships and then into the business world.  Each layer brings concentric challenges and the choices that we make ultimately define who we are. When we are young we may not see the role that our mothers play, but in the test of time, in those moments of doubt, we hear her voice sing with reason.

What I am, you helped me to be

What I am, you helped me to be

My mother, as many, was one that both nurtured and taught; allowing life’s existence to be portrayed beyond words but in the actions of her very being. The skills that she gave us were validated in her life and we learned some were a momentous legacy, while others filed away for future use. As I have grown and moved through a career of success, the folders that are her lessons have been opened and shared and it is then that I realize the depth of her gifts and the truth of her life.

When we enter into a company, we are expected to adopt their values and behaviors. Success appears in many flavors and each one is a temptation to step beyond what we know is right. When faced with a questionable decision, I dig deep into my heart, to listen and remember and acknowledge all that I learned; allowing the leadership that was her life to be maintained in mine.

Resilience is to bend with the winds of life. My mother taught us that change is inevitable and will always bring a renewal of purpose. In business this allows progress and as a leader it keeps the doors open for new ideas and concepts.

An ultimate level of humanity must include compassion. My mother impressed that human existence is not ‘checked’ at the door of a business, but instead is an integral part of it. Compassion for and with co-workers, clients and situations brings a level of understanding that offers resolutions.

Being accountable and living with the responsibility of choice and actions is a lesson of being an adult.  This is not always the easy path in leadership, but it does set the precedence to keep from repeating mistakes and allows needed progress to move past on onward. Once exemplified, responsibility does not allow blaming, but instead allows change.

No matter how difficult her road, my mother always expressed an attitude of gratitude. Gratefulness is a gift you give yourself and those around you, to acknowledge the benefits and keep in the positive. Following this guidance in a company creates an environment that releases anxieties to allow efficient focus on the daily functions and encourages thoughtfulness.

Dignity and respect of others and of self is a mainstay in all areas of life. My mother taught me that these alone can carry us through the storms of indecision and doubt, and elevate to a realm of distinction that complements all other lessons. A leader must include these two factors to bring humanity and clarity as part of the direction.

One of my mother’s mantras was ‘honor is a lifestyle’, and I have carried this in my heart wherever I have gone. Its meaning may be personal to each of us, but it is also a feeling, an innate vision, and a knowing.  Honor is the bowing of my head to thank my mother for the incredible lessons and the ability to allow me to carry them on and see the fruit of her teachings in my success of life.

Money Can’t Buy; Happiness,Love,Respect and Peace

 

It is how you choose to live your life.

It is how you choose to live your life.

All human beings struggle with something or the other in their lifetime. While it is true that some struggle a lot more than others, nobody can run away from it. And it is due to this constant struggle, that human beings have developed this concept in mind that all it takes for a happier life is money. Thus, this money is what everyone is after, and will continue to be after as long as they live. But have you ever stopped for one second to look inwards and consider the chaos going on within yourself?

 You are a human being first, and the things that money can buy are secondary. This means that your feelings, emotions, character, and integrity are not dependent on how much money you have. In fact, quite the opposite.

Money  and Your Individuality are Poles Apart

It is how you choose to live your life, however, that will bring the most impact. And how you choose to live your life does not depend on how much money you have. You can even live a great life with very little monetary benefits. If you all simply stop chasing after things and breathe for one second, we will be able to see a much clearer picture of our life. While money can buy you grand and luxurious things, these luxuries are only temporary items that you play with for a little while before you move onto something else. Let us take an example of a car. When you purchase a particular car, you will likely keep it for two years or so before a new model of the same car comes out, and then you will run after that model. These materialistic luxuries will never fully quench your thirst.

Character, Love, Integrity, Respect, and Peace are Very Important in Life

You need to live a life with meaning, and you do not need money in order to bring that meaning. If you always have money in your mind then you cannot fully live in the present but always worry about the future and the things that you can acquire.

This is likely going to take away your internal peace and the truest state of happiness. You will only be able to live a meaningful life if you remember that your integrity, character, and peace are very important. At the same time, you also have to give love and respect to the people around you in order to gain that love and respect.

You cannot live in a cocoon that is filled with money. Instead, you should think outside of that cocoon and know that life is truly beautiful if you just keep money aside for one moment and focus on giving more that acquiring in your life.

Be Socially Responsible to Change Your World

Compassion is one of the most important values that enable people to create a better environment.

Be Socially Responsible to Change Your World

Human morals and values serve as the driving agent in the act of giving the world a better shape. The importance of values in social responsibility or environmental sustainability cannot be undermined. Strong and deep-rooted values encourage people or organizations to come to the fore and be responsible enough to modify the world and make it a peaceful and prosperous place to live.

Compassion is one of the most important values that enable people to create a better environment. It motivates you to acknowledge others for who they are rather than focusing on minor differences. The feeling of mutual respect makes you human and distinguishes you from other species that exist on the earth. Organizations, while working on the principles of mutual respect, can formulate a newer, better, and more responsible society.

An easily ignored value that binds individuals or the entire society together is loyalty. It gives you enough strength to stand up against exploitation, injustice, and other evils present in your society. Above all, make sure to be honest to yourself. While being honest, people and organizations are able to accept their flaws, improve themselves, and consequently focus on improving their surroundings.

The most significant fact that should not be overlooked is that only a responsible citizen can create a responsible society. Execution of social responsibility is vital for every organization or individual in order to create an atmosphere which is supportive, generous, and where communal interests are preferred.

Examples of Individual Social Responsibility

Individual Social Responsibility enables an individual to introduce minor or major changes in his or her social environment. It makes a person more responsible in his or her actions that are believed to impact communities that may or may not be related to his or her immediate surroundings.

A significant contribution is made to social responsibility by the kind of choices and decisions that people make. Even their code of conduct, their way of treating others, and the products, services, and resources they prefer are related to the domain of social responsibility. Individual social responsibility is majorly about treating others in the same way as you want yourself to be treated. You are considered to be socially responsible if you consider yourself accountable for your particular actions and dealings. Your constant attempts to have a positive influence on your fellows and to improve your environment make you socially responsible as well as appreciable.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” – Mother Teresa

 

A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.

A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.

Peace signs and peace demonstrations. Peace in the heart, peace in the home. Peace of mind and peace of spirit. Peace, a state of harmony and calm that is characterized by a lack of violence, can be found in many shapes and forms.  The English word was derived more than 700 years ago from the Hebrew word “shalom,” which means safety, prosperity and friendship. Since that time, the word “peace” has been used to connote lack of war, goodwill among others and a calm internal state, among others.

Peace is a universal value, which, like love, compassion, integrity, respect and responsibility, can be found on every continent, every country, every state, city, town and neighborhood. Peace is diverse and knows no nationality, geography, culture or race. As a general rule, the more widespread peace is, the more unity, happiness and accord will exist among tribes, cultures, governments, families and friends.

Inner peace is a particularly prized state, since someone who experiences inner peace is better prepared to deal with personal and global challenges and discord, can enjoy true happiness regardless of what is going on around him or her, and experiences a genuine state of calm, joy and understanding.

In addition, there are a variety of peace prizes awarded to leaders in the peace community. The most remarkable of these are the Nobel Peace Prize, given annually by the Nobel committee to a person or persons who actively work for peace, and the International Gandhi Peace Prize, which was named after Mahatma Gandhi, the former leader of India, and is awarded to people and institutions that contribute to political, social and economic peace through their non-violent methods. Notably, these distinguished awards can be earned by anyone, regardless of race, creed, sex, age or nationality.

Likewise, the United States Institute of Peace is an independent, nonpartisan conflict management group created by Congress “to prevent and mitigate international conflict without resorting to violence.” The center works to save lives and increase the government’s ability to manage conflicts. Peace is a powerful concept that pervades government institutions all the way down to individual lives.

In addition, the idea of peace has spread to schools (Peace College in Raleigh, North Carolina), institutions (the Peace Corps), drinks (Peace Coffee), songs (“Imagine” by John Lennon) and more. There are even Twitter and Facebook groups dedicated exclusively to peace. While peace protestors wearing tie-dye t-shirts and waving peace signs were more prominent in the 1960s, symbols of peace continue to proliferate today, in homage to the idea that peace is important, no matter what the year, location or world circumstances.

Parents, caregivers, leaders and individuals who are seeking to create more peace can start with the concept of inner peace.

Ask yourself: How can I create more peace in my life? Where can I be more peaceful and less angry? How can I show others that I am committed to peace? What do I need to let go of or invite into my life? Examining your own life history is a great place to start identifying and spreading peace.

Then, you can share written and verbal stories and songs with children that espouse peace over violence, discuss current world events (both peaceful and violent ones) and their impact on others, and remind your children and family members of the value of peace in the world. When you see acts of  anger or violence, be willing to point them out and discuss them. Likewise, when you see acts of peace, be willing to celebrate them.

Further, you can get involved in peaceful activities in your community, whether it is a march for peace or a peaceful cause, a meditation group focused on cultivating inner peace or a nonprofit organization that helps victims of violence get back on their feet. There are a variety of small and large actions you can take to make your household, neighborhood, community and world at large a more peaceful place.

Unfortunately, acts of violence among children – shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado and Virginia Tech University, among others, as well as the fact that more than 13 million school kids will be bullied this year – sometimes seem to be more prominent than acts of peace. While these horrific incidents serve to spread an environment of mistrust, hatred and confusion, peace, love, compassion, integrity, respect and responsibility can counteract the weight of anger in the world. Applying a peaceful attitude and peaceful actions when dealing with children can help to foster more love and less hate in the world.

At first blush, peace might seem like more of an abstract concept than a tangible goal, but true peace, the kind that starts within, can spread like wildfire, changing ideas, lives and communities in the process.

Peaceful thoughts lead to peaceful words, which lead to peaceful actions. When you find peace in your mind, it’s easier to speak and communicate with peaceful intentions, leading to more peaceful interactions in your life.

Formula for Success: Keep an Attitude of Gratitude

Staying Positive

Keep an attitude of gratitude; picture courtesy Joseph Clough website.

An attitude of gratitude is one of the most influential contributors to staying positive in life. It is the most powerful way to enhance success and happiness. Appreciating someone or something for positive qualities can have a tremendous impact on your daily life. By showing gratitude, you embrace positive elements of determination, enthusiasm, energy, and attentiveness.

Gratitude can help in developing your sense of self-respect and self-esteem. It motivates you to appreciate all the amazing facets of life and create a steady balance of peace, harmony, and happiness. Difficulties present opportunities to grow and develop as a person. You have potential to convert adversities to blessings by adopting a thankful behavior. Gratitude maintains and strengthens your relationship with God and other fellow beings.

Express your Gratitude

Some people are inherently more positive, hopeful, and optimistic than others. Even the most cynical and pessimistic people can develop a positive and satisfied attitude with constant practice. If you feel that someone has done something nice for you, you should never hesitate to instantly thank him/her. When you show the attitude of gratitude, you actually share your joy with people around you. It does not only make you feel good, but also gives a certain level of confidence to others.

Do not Take Things for Granted: You easily ignore a majority of positive things in your life only because you are used to them. You are able to realize their significance only when you lose them. Do not falter to appreciate something before it is too late.

Small Things Matter: Developing the attitude of gratitude requires you to observe little things. When you are able to appreciate minor blessings, you can achieve great levels of happiness and satisfaction. It is never too difficult to be thankful for a little smile, small gift, or minor compliment.

Find Good in All Circumstances: Circumstances are neither bad nor good. It is your response to those circumstances that determine their good or bad nature. If you have a positive approach, you can manage to obtain some benefit even from the most terrible situations.

Make Careful Comparisons: It is quite natural to compare yourself with others. While you compare yourself with those who are more affluent, you should also remember the people who are not as fortunate as you. You should make appropriate and encouraging comparisons as sentiments of jealousy can affect your contentment and self-esteem.

Life is already full of anxieties, tensions, and problems. A simple act of considering positive aspects of life can make a huge difference. You can have an entirely different perspective of your life only if you learn to count your blessings, notice minute joys, and acknowledge everything that you have. If you have an attitude of gratitude, you can treasure your life, family, profession, and relations.
