What does success mean to you?How do you define “Success”?This book is about any normal human being whose life is full of innumerable complexities.Everyday, life is like a battle for him, be it on the social, economic or emotional front. Heseems to be forever caught up in a maze and totally lost in the crowd. What with life gettingever so commercial,he seems to be involved in a race. A race for money!“Let money follow you rather than you following the money”.We should always strive to do good acts. Money will follow subsequently.MONEY -> WE -> PASSION FOR QUALITY WORKThis precept has a deep meaning. Let me explain it to you. It does not mean that money isnot required or not essential in life. In fact, money is a motivator in everybody’s life. However,when we focus on making money alone and on accumulating huge amount of wealth, we tendto ignore the quality aspect and thus compromise in giving our best. In the haste to hoardmoney, we tend to make false commitments, tell lies and drag others down to reach high inlifeHow can we then consider ourselves successful?Today, most of us eye only the hefty pay packages and targets without realizing our ownstrength. Therefore,we gradually become stagnant after attaining a respectable level.Seldom does one think about the work profile or the kind of thrill our job offers. We haverather become slaves of the pay packages; working mechanically from morning until late nightto accomplish our targets.We may get rich, but no one knows the real ‘us’. For, we are still lost in the crowd.So how can we differentiate ourselves from others?How do we COME OUT OF THE CROWD?If we want to stand out of the masses, we need to work qualitatively. We need to bepassionate for our profession. If we focus on giving our best, money and fame would follow byitself.The passion for good work is like a Provident Fund that keeps on accumulating. One day wemay have a huge amount in the form of respect, recognition and self actualization that nobodycan take away from us. Thus, we may differentiate ourselves from others and would findourselves coming out distinctly from the crowd.We invest in properties, estates, and stocks to make money (Probably blindly followingothers). One day we may feel ourselves to be on the top of the world by being, say, amillionaire/billionaire. But it is also likely that we may see bad days and everything fallingapart and all our hard-earned money getting wiped out.Therefore, we should invest in our work, in enhancing our knowledge, in acquiring skills, ininnovating and improvising our work effectiveness so that we reach the zenith in ourprofession.So, we should be recognized by the quality of our work, rather than by the quantity of moneywe possess. Let us be leaders and set standards for others to follow.We all know Sachin Tendulkar, the cricket wizard, one of the greatest batsmen in the world.
