“Education is a lifelong process. It is a great amplifier and accelerator. It must help us learn to live sustainably. It must create curiosity and open the minds of students. It must ignite the minds of the students and help them convert information into knowledge.” ―Professor M.S. Rao
In this article, I unveil a few incredible ideas and insights on life leadership to explore opportunities and achieve amazing success globally.
Believe In Your Dreams
“Be passionate, persistent, and patient. There is nothing like an overnight success. Work hard, smart and wise to stand out from others. I failed many times in my life. I fail every day. But I don’t have any regrets because I learn lessons and move on with valuable takeaways.” ―Professor M.S. Rao
You must believe in your dreams whether your parents believe in your dreams or not, your family members believe in your dreams or not, and your peers believe in your dreams or not. I have been unemployed for more than five years without any regular income. I still work hard because I believe in my dreams. Things often don’t fall into place. Ensure that things fall into place. Don’t complain. Be a strategist. Be optimist. Explore opportunities. Never give up.
“You rarely get things on a platter. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Everything comes at a cost. You must work hard, work smart, and work wisely to establish yourself and achieve success. If anything comes easily, it goes away easily. So, work hard to succeed in your life.” ―Professor M.S. Rao
The world is full of challenges and opportunities. It all depends on how you perceive the world. You can explore opportunities from challenges and complaints. It depends on your mindset. Look at the door that is opened, not closed. The world is shifting from a knowledge-based economy into a technology-based economy. There are immense opportunities for millennials and centennials globally.
You came to this world happily. You must leave the world happily. So, give your best every day for your family and community, and society. I was born into a toxic family and grew up in a toxic environment. I did not complain. I found my own way of exploring opportunities. I dropped out of college at the age of 18, joined the Indian Air Force, and supported my parents financially. I acquired several qualifications including Ph.D. in soft skills. Therefore, be part of the solution, not the problem. Don’t wait. Make moves. Keep doing things smartly. Think about how you can make things different. You don’t have to know everything to be successful. Identify the people who are experts in their areas. Hire them and train them. Bring them together and brainstorm to get the best ideas. Shortlist the best idea and execute it brutally to accomplish your goals and objectives.
Life Is All About Service
“If someone asks me a question, ‘What is it you see when you look out the window that is visible but not yet seen by others’ I will answer, ‘I see a world filled with people with a huge potential lying untapped. If I can identify their strengths and inspire them to unlock their potential, I feel that I have made a difference in the world.’” —Professor M.S. Rao
Life is all about service. I served customers in a tea stall in my childhood. I served my nation in the Indian Air Force as a soldier. I served customers in my business as an entrepreneur. I served students in educational institutions as a professor. I serve local communities through nonprofits. I serve by sharing my knowledge freely with the world and with my nonprofit initiative, Vision 2030: One Million Global Leaders. Everyone must serve in their capacities. When you look at Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson Mandela, they served their societies. Nothing is greater than serving others with a great heart. We live in a world where is a huge competition for takers and the least competition for givers. So, be a giver and serve your societies and communities to build a better world. Make a difference in the lives of others.
