8 Human Traits You Need to Be Successful (Not Your IQ)

by Darpan Sachdeva

via- SUCCESS Staff

Is it possible that intelligence is overrated? Although a natural touch for acquiring and making sense of knowledge is undoubtedly a valuable trait in our professional and personal lives, research has shown that there are far more important factors at play when it comes to succeeding at our goals and duties. In fact, the Carnegie Institute of Technology claims that 85 percent of financial success can be attributed to people skills rather than raw brain power. And it makes sense that people prefer to do business with those they trust.

Elsewhere, Dr. Arthur E. Poropat identified five personality traits which—taking intelligence levels into account—can be shown to improve test results. Studying is of course recommended, but conscientiousness, openness, agreeableness, extraversion and emotional stability can also pay off with higher grades.

In the workplace, team-thinking and personal development should be key priorities, not afterthoughts to acquiring technical knowledge. Emotional awareness toward yourself, your colleagues and your clients sits at the core of an effective professional development strategy. In order to do that you need to do two things:

Know yourself. Manage your emotions, identify potential areas of improvement through training or research, take failure or mistakes as lessons and aim to grow.

Know others. Listen for their ideas and needs, work with these in mind even if you disagree with them, let your teammates and your customers see your passion.

Curiosity is a vastly underrated attribute that brings understanding, widens horizons and encourages fellowship. Taking time to study and develop the personality traits highlighted in the infographic below is a good sign in itself: These so-called “soft skills” are in fact fundamental to thriving in the business world. An open mind is endlessly more valuable than one rigidly stuffed with facts and unable to adapt to circumstances.

“When you know better, You do better” – The life impacting lesson Oprah learnt from Maya Angelou

by  Darpan Sachdeva

oprah

“When I think about my twenties and what a foolish girl I was and how I would give over my power to men who really didn’t mean me well… But now I hold no grudges against them either because I realize I’m the one who gave over the power because I didn’t know any better. And now that I know better I know I don’t have to do that again. It’s one of the most powerful lessons any of us can ever know.” ~ Oprah

All of us criticize our selves from time to time so often on the things or mistakes we have committed in our past.We try to be harsh on ourselves for not meeting that standard line of conduct or correct approach we have set up for ourselves.We blame and criticize ourselves for things we might have done in the past, failing to realize that the past is in the past. We can’t change what happened in the past but we can surely learn from it.

We certainly can do better today as compared to the past since we know better than we did in the past.This is exactly the same lesson what Oprah got from Maya Angelou as her mentor and she has explained it in the video  below so beautifully.This is so powerful. Please enjoy!!!

Whenever you feel the need to be harsh and critical on yourself, just say to yourself: “I did what I knew.. when I knew better, I did better” ~ Maya Angelou

We are all held in the same captivity, and those who have bound others are themselves in bonds – unless you think perhaps that the left-hand chain is lighter. One man is bound by high office, another by wealth; good birth weighs down some, and a humble origin others; some bow under the rule of other men and some under their own; some are restricted to one place by exile, others by priesthoods: all life is a servitude.

So you have to get used to your circumstances, complain about them as little as possible, and grasp whatever advantage they have to offer: no condition is so bitter that a stable mind cannot find some consolation in it.”
~ Seneca, On the Shortness of Life

Rules to Success by Ratan Tata | Indian Business Leader | Entrepreneur

by Darpan Sachdeva

With my extreme love and appreciation for the Tata  family and the group as a whole , i am confident that  Mr Ratan Tata is always going to be the key hold name and inspiration for all the entrepreneurs globally now and for the times to come.

Mr Ratan Tata is an Indian Business Leader, investor, philanthropist and Chairman of TATA Group. The Video down below  is a tribute to the great man.We know him by his vision, ideas, Entrepreneurship skills, Quotes, Business strategies, Philosophy, ethics. His Motivational Speech inspires us every time. He has been  honored with Padam Bhushan and Padam Vibhushan ,Indian national  awards for his service.




 

Down below are few takeaways for any entrepreneur  from an interview with him at the launch of seed program— Kstart, on Feb 5th, 2016.

If you were a 26-year old entrepreneur of today

Ideas come when you see a problem. Find problems to solve and then put time, energy and efforts to create ventures out of these thoughts or ideas.

In the very limited time that I have been associated with startups, I have heard ideas which I thought would never work. However, those ideas have gone ahead and done fairly well. I realized I am on the learning curve of understanding what young intelligent people around me can do.

Principles on which companies should be formed.

It is exciting if your idea can change the way people live, think or sustain themselves. For me, partly due to my involvement in philanthropy, I am particularly excited when an idea can, in addition, make a positive difference.

What qualities should one look for in an investor?

One looks for investors who have a similar sort of excitement and passion for what one is trying to do. Collaborate with an investor who is not only willing to risk his money but also participates in the journey of the entrepreneur, and use his contacts, mentorship etc. to make the entrepreneur’s vision work in the real world.

Growth v/s profitability, how does one find the equilibrium?

There is no single formula or proven science behind this. In the last few years, I have seen companies grow at rates that I never thought would be possible. The next question then is, can these growth rates be sustained. I think it should be about how you want your vision to be implemented and then closely monitor the progress at each stage.

Importance of creating a personal brand for a startup CEO

I think it is a personal choice to build your brand inseparable from a company, some people do it while others don’t.

Many founders believe that communicating too much gives away their competitive advantage. However, an active system of communication with all stakeholders is a great plus. Successful CEOs do it religiously. It is important to know that “how the world sees you is a result of how well you communicate”.

Celebrating success and defining moments

There have been several successful moments in my journey. But the one moment under the sun that clearly stands out for me was the launch of the Tata Nano. The idea came when I saw a family going on a scooter on a rainy day. They met with an accident and were lying on the road. That got me thinking about how to make a two wheeler safe — which in turn led to the concept of making an affordable four wheeler. Tata Nano is a result of that thought.

We put together a team to design and manufacture the car at a price point that was extremely affordable. We launched it at the auto expo in Delhi. It was a spectacular event.

One thing you wish you had known at 26

As a young employee at Jamshedpur, I went to my bosses with a lot of ideas, but often I wouldn’t be heard and would be told to continue doing what I was doing. In such situations, I yearned for an environment where one would be heard when one had an idea. Maybe, I did not know how to frame my question or idea. I think how you communicate is something you wish you could have done better when you were young.

His inspirations

  • JRD Tata: who left his mark on the industry in India; was a tremendous mentor to me
  • Henry Schacht: Former chairman and CEO of Cummins Diesel inspired me a lot. I learnt a lot from him.
  • Amar Bose, who formed the Bose Corporation. He and I became very close. We spent a lot of time exchanging ideas.

9 Life Lessons To Success From The Richest Man In Asia

by Darpan Sachdeva

This man’s name is Li Ka-Shing.

Li ka shing

Mr. Li is the richest man in Asia with a net worth of $28.8 billion. From high school dropout to self-made billionaire, Li came from very humble beginnings when he was growing up in China. He wrote an article a while back outlining a plan that anyone can follow to be able to buy a car and a house within five years; something like “The Art of War” for how entrepreneurs and success seekers should act. That article was recently translated to English by Edmund Ng of CeoConnectz. Check out and study these eight points from Li Ka-Shing to master the art of success.

1. Buy lunch for people more important than you.

“Always remember to buy lunch for people who are more knowledgeable than you, richer than you or people who have helped you in your career. Make sure you do that every month. After one year, your circle of friends should have generated tremendous value for you. Your reputation, influence, and added value will be clearly recognized. You’ll also enhance your image of being kind and generous.”

2. Become a bookworm.

“When you buy the books, read them carefully and learn the lessons and strategies that are being taught in the book. For each book, after you read them, put them into your own language to tell the stories. Sharing with others can improve your credibility and enhance the affinity. “

3. Learn to sell like a wolf.

“It would be great to find a part-time sales job. Doing sales is challenging but it’s the fastest way for you to acquire the art of selling and this is a very deep skill that you will be able to use for the rest of your career. All successful entrepreneurs are good salespeople. They have the ability to sell their dream and visions. You’ll also meet many people that will be of value to you in the later part of your career. Once you’re in sales, you will also learn what sells and what doesn’t. Use the sensitivity of detecting market sentiments as a platform for running your business and in the identification of product winners in the future. “

4. Don’t wear clothes you can barely afford.

“Try to buy minimal clothes and shoes. You can buy them all you want when you’re rich. Save your money and instead buy gifts for your loved ones and tell them your plans and your financial goals. Tell them why you are so thrifty. Tell them your efforts, direction and your dreams.”

5. Learn from others by offering to help them.

“Businessmen everywhere need help. Offer yourself to do part-time work for any kind of opportunity. This will help to hone your will and improve your skills. You will start to develop eloquence and soon, you’ll be closer to your financial goals.”

6. Start planning A.S.A.P.

“Life can be designed. Careers can be planned. Happiness can be prepared. You should start planning now. When you are poor, spend less time at home and more time outside. When you are rich, stay at home more and less outside. This is the art of living. When you are poor, spend money on others. When you’re rich, spend money on yourself. Many people are doing the opposite.”

7. Don’t let your ego rule you.

“When you are poor, be good to others. Don’t be calculative. When you are rich, you must learn to let others be good to you. You have to learn to be good to yourself even more. When you are poor, you have to throw yourself out in the open and let people make good use of you. When you are rich, you have to conserve yourself well and not let people easily make use of you. These are the intricate ways of life that many people don’t understand.”

8. Don’t ever flash your wealth to others.

“When you are poor, spend money so that people can see it. When you are rich, don’t show off, but silently spend the money on yourself. When you are poor, you must be generous. When you are rich, you must not be seen as a spendthrift. Your life would have come full circle and reached its basics. There is tranquility at this stage.”

9. Discipline yourself and stay focused.

“There is nothing wrong with being young. You don’t need to be afraid of being poor. You need to know how to invest in yourself and increase your wisdom and stature. You need to know what is important in life and what is worth investing in. You also need to know what you should avoid spending your money on. This is the essence of discipline. Try to avoid spending money on clothes but buy a selective number of items that have class. Try to eat out less. If you do go out to eat, make sure it’s for lunch or dinner and always foot the bill. When buying people dinner, make sure you buy dinner for people who have bigger dreams than you and who work harder than you.”

Anthony Robbin’s Inspiration….The Motivational Master ‘Jim Rohn’

By Darpan Sachdeva

Jim Rohn

Tony Robbins says there was no one to mentor him growing up, and he credits books for starting to show him the way. Throughout his life, however, he has partnered with or learned from several people from a wide array of disciplines.

First and foremost is early mentor Jim Rohn, an Idaho farm boy and Sears clerk who made it big as a motivational speaker and author. He presented seminars all over the country for 40 years, was a millionaire by age 31 and wrote 17 books. Robbins met Rohn when Rohn was about 50, and he just 17. “He was a beautiful man,” Robbins says, who taught him “happiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live and what we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life.”



For more than 40 years, Jim Rohn honed his craft like a skilled artist-helping people the world over sculpt life strategies that have expanded their imagination of what is possible. Those who had the privilege of hearing him speak can attest to the elegance and common sense of his material. It is no coincidence, then, that he is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time, and thought of by many as a national treasure. Jim authored countless books and audio and video programs, and helped motivate and shape an entire generation of personal-development trainers and hundreds of executives from America’s top corporations.

Born to an Idaho farming family in the mid-1900s, Jim was ingrained with a work ethic that has served him well throughout his life. At 25, he met his mentor Earl Shoaff. And over the next six years he made his first fortune, yet didn’t get into speaking until he moved to Beverly Hills, California, when a friend at the Rotary Club asked him to tell his success story, which Rohn titled “Idaho Farm Boy Makes It to Beverly Hills.”

His speech went over so well that he received more invitations to share it, and better yet, they started paying him for it. In the beginning, he spoke in front of college and high-school classes and at service clubs, before moving on to seminars in 1963, which launched him into the personal-development business. From then on, Jim Rohn became a trailblazer in the self help and personal development industry, impacting the lives of millions through his life-changing material.

Jim Rohn focused on the fundamentals of human behavior that most affect personal and business performance. His is the standard to which those who seek to teach and inspire others are compared. He possessed the unique ability to bring extraordinary insights to ordinary principles and events, and the combination of his substance and style captures the imagination of those who hear or read his words.

Jim is known as one of the great wordsmiths of our time. Here is a sampling from Jim’s Treasury of Quotes that reflect on his philosophy on life and business:

Skills: Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems; wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges; wish for more wisdom. 

Growth: Don’t join an easy crowd. You won’t grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform and achieve are high. 

Change: We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation. 

Activity: The few who do are the envy of the many who watch. 

Success: Success is what you attract by the person you become.
