Career Driving Lessons

1.“Behind every successful man, there’s a lot of unsuccessful years.”

The basics of being successful in life are always the same. You just need to focus on the essentials. With this I would like to tell you about few important and essential dynamics required for a successful career.


2.“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer”

Following carefully the words of this quote I think we have learned quite a lot about the technical things and learnings of the market. Now for some relaxation and better visualization of ourselves we should know the shortcomings we face are and how we can learn from leaders, people who have exceled in their fields and their guru mantra for success.

No matter where you are in your career, chances are you’re in need of a little motivation to get to the next step—to go for the job you’ll actually love waking up for, to ask for that promotion, or to just push through a rough day. Well motivation is always needed to be your driving force and what better than proven quotes by the greats.


3.“If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission.”

Truly greatness comes with hardwork and not with luck and anyone’s permission to be successful.


4.“It does not matter how slow you go as long as you don’t stop.”

Tortoise eventually wins the race, the famous story we all know about but let me tell you, you need to be as fast as the rabbit.


5.“Find out what you like doing best, and get someone to pay you for doing it.”

This is lucrative and infact the truth and the reality we all seek for at every point of our life but only few of us actually attempt at doing it. The point of discussion here is that you need to follow your dream and work on the thing that you like most.


6.“The future depends on what you do today.”,“Opportunities don’t happen, you create them.”, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

These three quotes sum up the most basic fundamental we should follow for being successful, that is fight until the muscles in your body rip, work until the thirst within you doesn’t dry you up and work till you don’t see your destiny as you dreamt it to be.


7.“Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.”

Self- confidence is a treasured asset to all those who have it. Well if we are fortunate and had relatively favorable conditions and experiences whilst we are growing up, we are likely to develop a healthy self-esteem and become confident people. However, if conditions and experiences are mainly negative we are more likely to experience difficulties developing our confidence. Here you just need to hold on to your nerves and persist the difficult times.

Self–confidence is a kind of physical activity that you need to work on to build up your self-esteem, self-efficacy and to have a good self-evaluation about yourself. Your main aim should be to work every day to become better and better in the work that you do for the dreams that you live. The process is simple, great efforts would fetch you good results which would eventually cause people to evaluate you on a higher scale thus helping you to grow your self-confidence.


8.“Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration.”

Leadership is more about attracting others who are in harmony to your thought process and making them afflicted to your ideas and the growth model you think is best fit. Your life as a leader gets better on the outside when you become good on the inside. Every single person has the ability to shape his/her career and personality though in different time slice. Self-discipline is one quality that helps you to become a better leader. As you have a firm control over yourselves, your senses and emotions you become all the more productive at work.

Let me clear out one basic thing, “Leaders are made, not born.” To become a good leader you need to study the core qualities and character of the great leaders that the world has seen. Casualties with your money bring casualties to your financial life so you need to be very cautious while handling money matters. It’s very important for a leader to market himself effectively and in true and fair sense to everyone.


9.“You may delay but time will not, well that itself tells the importance of time.”

One thing that actually makes the maximum difference in your life whether as an influencer, as a leader or as an individual is time management. Your task should always be to make up chunks of time by motivating yourself in your workplace. One very important technique to effective time-management is to multitask. Work on your tasks an hour before you leave for office, this gives you an added advantage over others. Develop a habit to do hardwork through those hours when others are relaxing. This technique would give you the bonus of the remaining time in the office.

The truth is that time is the greatest equalizer in life. No matter who you are, your age, income, gender, race or religion, you have the same amount of time as the next person. Whether you’re filthy rich or dirt poor, your time is the same. It’s not about how much time you have. It’s about how effectively you manage your time.


The secret of great people is often conveyed by their words.

In this ever-changing society, the most powerful and enduring brands are built from the heart. They are real and sustainable. Their foundations are stronger because they are built with the strength of the human spirit, not an ad campaign. The companies that are lasting are those that are authentic. Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks.

Truly, the hardwork you put in is the most important thing. It makes you long lasting, it makes you do great things and it makes you spit out fire even when the surroundings are cold.


If you’re changing the world, you’re working on important things. You’re excited to get up in the morning. – Larry Page, CEO of Google.

Motivation is the best power pill an individual can have. If you have a purpose then you are sure to win and to win big.


I’m responsible for this company. I stand behind the results. I know the details, and I think the CEO has to be the moral leader of the company … I think high standards are good, but let’s not get anybody confused, it’s about performance with integrity. That’s what you have to do. – Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric.

If you have the courage to be a leader you got to have courage to accept the fate when it hits you the hardest. Remember a leader is the master of his ship, the slayer of the group and the captain of the army.


“To me, business isn’t about wearing suits or pleasing stockholders. It’s about being true to yourself, your ideas and focusing on the essentials.” – Sir Richard Branson, CEO of Virgin Group.

Well each one of us wants to be successful but not all work to be that. To be successful you need to fight the odds every single day, you need to focus on your decisions rather than the reaction of others on those decisions. To be one individual who can change the world you need to be that individual who has the guts to change his own self when he is wrong. That’s when it actually means to be above the daily paradox of life and be one, that unique one in the crowd.
