SUCCESS MATTERSOr Do You Take Cover Like Other Birds, Scared to Death?

Great personalities are born out of a habit of standing tall in the face of adversity. Since times immemorial, great thinkers, philosophers, political leaders, commanders of armed forces, even kings and statesmen have mastered the art of not bending under any pressure. Great business leaders know how to navigate the ship in murky waters and take decisions that others shudder to think of, all for the sake of not just survival but consistent growth.

Nature gives us one of the biggest examples of resilience when the eagles refuse to bow down to surging storm clouds. These birds of prey can be compared to nothing less than steadfast leaders that see a silver lining in those clouds and use the skills, the charisma, the experience and the analytical skills at their disposal to get maximum leverage out of the situation that most others look for an escape from.

There is a beautiful example that was narrated to me by my maternal grandfather a long time ago and it goes like this: ‘All ships look beautiful in the harbour but their true strength is only evident in the way they navigate through the worst storms in wide open oceans. They have nowhere to hide and no external support to save them or to provide an anchor yet they go unscathed and reach their destination safe and sound, come hell or high water.

The commanders at the helm of these ships are no novices. They have weathered enough of these storms to know the nature of the beast even before they approach it, ready to strike with all their might. It is a different story that no one ever sings their praises. On their part, they never boast about it either. Why, because they consider it a part of their job.

In order for us to be equally strong and judicious decision-maker, we must make full use of our naturally gifted faculties and pay attention to our surroundings. We need to stop listening to rumour mongers, use our own wisdom rather than others’ self-centered suggestions, awaken our analytical capabilities and pay attention to actions, inaction and/or causes that resulted in a given catastrophic situation. Unless we know the cause, we may never find the cure.

Remember, we all have our own little kingdoms to take care of on a daily basis. Our decisions impact other lives, no matter how small our family, circle or domain. One wrong decision could result in some serious damage to anyone concerned. If we can make good use of our faculties at home then why do we fail at work?

Agreed, your responsibilities at home are minuscule compared with those at work or business and the resulting gain or loss is also proportional. However, your mastery of the skill to take decisive action that weighs both the pros and cons in an analytical fashion shall see you through in the face of storms. You will need to be humble enough to take such challenges in stride as an important component of your responsibility that you MUST tackle with absolute devotion, dedication and diligence.

Bharat Mathur
WHERE goal setting and systematically achieving each one of them has been the ‘Mantra’, where earning trust by delivering value has been an uncompromising principle and where deeply impactful experiences have made an indelible impression to look directly into the eyes of toughest problems and tackling them head-on has been a major cementing glue in the foundation, Bharat Mathur fits the bill, hands down! Creating value for others, out of the challenges his career in the “C” Suite kept throwing at him left, right and center, Bharat now finds solace in being a ‘Guide by Your Side’ rather than a ‘Sage on the Stage with An Eye on What You Buy’! Past 4 decades of Bharat’s life have been no less eventful than that of anyone else in similar circumstances. However, the way he lived from one challenge to another and stayed focused on his goal is clearly visible as much in his Coaching as in his #1 Best Seller Book: “you Are YOU-nique: Realize Your True Worth”! His next book project tackles ‘Internet of things’ (IoT) from the viewpoint of a layman and helps understand this fast-approaching revolution in simple, easy-to-understand language with live examples: “SMART PHONE + I o T = INCOMPARABLE OPPORTUNITIES” Nurturing a number of successful businesses, mentoring a lot more towards astronomical growth and helping them identify and eradicate trouble spots, Bharat has rightfully earned the nickname: ‘Achiever’ Send him Bouquets or Brickbats, Bharat loves it all!
