Success is an elusive thing that almost all of us are chasing. Some spend their life not finding it, some find it when they feel it is just not worth getting it, and then there are those few lucky souls who do find it. Sometimes even after finding it people realize that it is not what will truly make them happy and then another quest for elusive “Success” begins.
Strange as it may seem, but we have a mysterious attraction to make things complicated when they can be very simple. This is so true in life that those who realize this after years of struggle find themselves astonished at how they got caught in the web of doubts, confusion and struggle that they themselves had woven.
Today we will talk about 2 simple techniques of Mastering Success and surfing through the waves of challenges like an efficient surfer. Must make some points clear – simple and easy are not the same things.
Mastering Success Formula #1
Crazy About Measurable “Result”
Quickest, fastest way to progress in life is to fall in love with “Results”. I struggled with this idea when it was introduced to me by one of the very interesting person I interacted with for about an hour’s time. His ideas seemed so simple when I heard it while attending an open forum at Mphasis that I took an immediate liking to everything he said. He simply said – “Become indispensable for you team.” Well, thinking back I was amazed how our mind misses some powerful ideas which are as simple as this. Simple yet not easy – I must point out. But only if you move in the right direction will you reach the intended destination, isn’t it? Sometimes we keep moving in the wrong direction and keep complaining about not being able to find our destination.
Another important thing is to make sure that these results are measurable and not something we will struggle to explain to others. It should be measurable so that anyone can see the obvious value addition it brings to your team or organization.
So, before we move to next point let us reiterate the two key things that we talked about:
- Get crazy about results
- Not just any results but measurable results which brings visible changes to your team or organization
(The “how-to” to get results will fall in place only after some time and it may not be easy. However, it is the only question you should try to find an answer to)
Master Success Formula #2
Give Your Brain Input That Produces The Desired Output
One of the biggest mistakes that we human do is that we sometimes start acting as if we are more powerful than nature. You can see the results everywhere around. Pollution, global warming, depletion of ozone layer etc. it is all because we act as if we are bigger than nature. Fighting nature is a recipe of disaster.
You must be wondering how that is connected to our personal success. Well, it is. It is most certainly related to our personal success. I would blame our education system for this. How? This is how –
Our brain’s power lies in the power of focus. If we do not use this power of focus in the right way then instead of growing our brain becomes increasingly less productive and slowly it starts negatively affecting us in many ways.
Let us look at how can we nurture the power of our brain and use it to help us master success. You can put this idea in practice right now.
Take a few minutes out and jot down 3 key areas of your life that you would like to bring a turnaround to. It could be job, family and personal health. Take a post-it pad and write these down and stick it somewhere in your room.
Keep asking yourself for the next few days whether bringing absolutely powerful changes in these areas will really make you the happiest person that you ever wanted to become. (Please ask the same question and do not make changes, it is framed in this manner specifically because it activates our brain in a certain way which is important). If you do find some other areas bring it in and remove the one that you don’t think is that important and follow the same exercise. This question asking exercise is best to be done early morning or before going to bed at a quite time.
Once you are done with this exercise for 5-7 days and you feel you have clarity, now you can do the real job of filling most of your day’s time thinking, contemplating and reflecting on thoughts directed in these areas. Take it to a very micro level, browse, talk and do almost everything where you are discussing or exploring about these ideas.

How much time do you think it takes to move from speaking dead words to making vibrant and lively presentations which can enthrall your audience?

Who can learn the art of making powerful presentations so fast?
Let me tell you stories of 2 individuals with different walks of life
One of them is a software engineer with about 3-4 years of experience and has worked with companies like McAfee, HCL and Intuit. She has average command over language.
The other person is an enthusiastic learner, has not completed his studies like most of us but is still continuing it. He has work experience of 9 years. Again like the lady we mentioned above he does not have great command over language. But his attitude for learning is definitely infectious.
Have they mastered making presentation yet?
Of course not. They need to practice and build it a habit which requires practice, but if you listen to their presentation today you cannot avoid getting impressed. And you will definitely not know that 1 day back they wouldn’t know how to make people listen to them for even a minute.
Great isn’t it?

If you are educating a child in a manner that before coming to any decision or judgment he shall ask his conscience the rightness of his choice and not his likeability or the popularity of the choice he is going to make and if the training imparted has made his conscience strong enough so that its voice shall be louder than that of crowds of men, no matter how big the crowd is, only then you have truly educated the child.
