* India is changing – what about you?
There was a time, not too long ago, when companies paid software developers
just enough to keep them from quitting and the developers worked just enough
to keep from getting fired.
Times have changed. India is Changing. Our programmers are now learning the best work cultures from every corner of the world and bringing it back to India.
Programmers have become more ambitious, more goal oriented.
They are working harder now. Learning new technologies faster now.
They are not afraid to complain if they bosses try to fleece them.
The best Professionals are now looking towards small and medium sized
companies as it offers them a better chance to grow. If the company
they work for has a poor management and poor growth plans, the professionals
The bosses have improved. They now put forward the welfare of their employees
and their customers over temporary profits. They are turning into leaders rather
than managers. They set examples now instead of the usual stick & carrots.
If your company is facing the attrition problem, if good people keep leaving you,
then know this – It is time to change now. Otherwise, you will soon perish.
If you, as an employee, are not going the extra mile regularly, not having the habit of giving more than you get paid for, then know this – It is time to change now. A new generation of Programmers is coming up – kids who were born with laptops and learnt Java alongside History. When this new age programmers enter the market, the company will be the first to ‘End your contract’. Unless, you change of course.
In my own experience, I have learn two things. What employees will do for a company is very very less from what they are capable of. Also, what bosses can do to make their company reach new heights is much much more than what they do. And the reason for both doing what they do is not that they are in the wrong places, it is just that neither is aware of what they are capable of.
Discover yourself. Find your potentials. 90% of people can exponentially increase their income by just adding one more skill to their current skillset. 90% people are just one skill short of success.
Each and every one of us, including you, as you read this blog post, has infinite, infinite powers among us. We just fail to see it.
If you are on the internet, you already have everything you need to succeed. Your age does not matter – the fact that you are alive itself is the biggest gift you have. You know, a hundred years ago, billions of people died – and none of them wanted to. There are millionaires who are now dead, and they would give everything they had just to get 1 year of life. Time, life, is the costliest thing.
They minutes you spent reading this – you cannot buy them back, now for a trillion dollars. There are trillions of souls who died in the millions of years that have passed. About 20,000 days from now, most of us will be dead too.
If you are on the Internet, you know English. You have a computer, you are educated better than Dhirubhai Ambani. All that Ambani had in his first office was a Table, three chairs and one Phone. You have much more – just one thing is missing – Belief.
The Founder of KFC, Colonel Sanders, did not have high school education. His stepfather beat him out of his house when he was 12 years old. At the age of 65, he was a financial failure and got a check of $105 as social security. He decided – Enough. No more. He went on to a 1000+ restaurants to convince them to sell his chicken recipe. The rest is history. If he started at 65 – how old are you?
As you sit reading this, there are people in Kolkata itself who are spending more in a day than you make in a month. What is the difference between them and you? Did God make you with a smaller brain? I guess no. A smaller heart? Surely, No. The only difference between them and you is the software – your beliefs about how much you are worth and how much you can do. All you need to do is to do a format of your brain, and install the same beliefs that Ambani, Bill and Tatas share.
My journey started about 8-9 months back, when I discovered happiness. I was into business for 8 years , having seen some good times and some bad ones. I was at a personal low in my life, when I found happiness. Not through my own techniques, but through those I learned from reading several books by the greatest people. Since then, my career has simply taken off.
If you reached the end of this message, know this – 90% people who start never finish reading this. The fact that you did means you have everything and you are also perhaps just one skill short. Maybe that skill is knowing how to be happy, maybe that is managing finances, maybe that is public speaking, maybe ….
I invite you to find your goal and your happiness – at one of our Free seminars / workshops at our Kolkata office. I am just an ordinary teacher with extraordinary dreams.
