I have been working for the last 17 years or so and majority of my experience is in Sales and Marketing. I have also been writing for more than 20. It was a chance encounter with one of the better known journalist, in India, while I was attached with their news paper, as a freelancer and contributor that changed my life. As I enjoyed my career in sales and had reached a pretty high position, it was difficult for me to switch over but as I had practically no time to spend with my family I used this as a motivating factor and steadily shifted to full time writing and so far it has been a nice experience.
I am basically a go-getter and seek near, if not absolute, perfection in almost everything I do. As they say, nothing is perfect in this world but nobody can stop you in your endeavor to achieve it, as your serious attempts in transforming the impossible into something possible and getable, keeps you growing and learn more, and always improving and becoming a better human being. It is this quest for reaching the intangible, that eggs you on to greet your destiny rather than waiting for the destiny to find you. I believe that hard (but smart) work, sincerity and a wholehearted devotion to the cause will always carry you to your objective, all you need is a willing heart and unflinching determination to succeed, because once you make up your mind, somehow or the other you will learn and gather the requisite skills and finally the expertise to reach your goal. I am a team man (for me TEAM is Together Everybody Achieves More) and it is a serious endeavour of mine to make people happy so that they have fond memories of mine.I excel in leading a team rather than managing them and my people management quotient is quite high; consequently I am a very good motivator and a certified trainer and inculcate in people that it is the fear of failure and lack of determination to succeed, which is the greatest hindrance in your path to glory. You nip the fear and gear yourself up, with a resolute mindset and an optimistic and positive attitude, to begin a voyage and you will see how you obliterate all the obstacles on your way to reach the zenith or even beyond it.
I love challenges, infact I thrive on them. People around me opine that when the almighty was manufacturing me He injected a much heavier quantity of CTQ (challenge taking quotient) into my CPU and somehow the QA department up there also did a divine goof up and passed me as a “Quality Insured” piece. Well, now they know, but can hardly do anything because no body is complaining, after all everybody’s gain is not somebody’s loss because all are on the same side, yours truly included. This supposedly malfunction, due to manufacturing defect, has done wonders for me. I take the bull by the horns and look the storm straight in the eye rather then shying away from it and more often than not I emerge a clear winner.
I am a happy go lucky kind of a person and I do not count life with the number of times you breath but by the number of times your breath way was taken away. These are the moments worth striving for, worth waiting for, worth remembering and worth creating. I believe that every creation on the planet has an aura and energy of its own and this is what propels me to love and respect everything around me.
Crises and deadlocks when they occur have at least the advantage; that they force us to think and take appropriate action. Failures are considered dreadful and stumbling blocks for the weak, whereas for the winners it is just another step on their voyage towards their heartland as they keep growing with every failure, with a renewed zeal and zest to overcome it and never allowing the same situation to repeat itself. We are what we are due to certain choices we made and the decisions we took or could not take, everything around us is a result of trial and error the lesser species just gave it up whereas the bold and the successful kept trying till they could say Eureka. It is due to this rare species that the earth is a better place to live in today then ever before. Just imagine what would have happened if Addison had given up, (Whew! Only the mere thought of a World minus ‘Bulb’ makes me jittery and a chill run down my spine, yours too) he failed 2000 times yet his determination to reach his goal was so strong that when he was asked how did he feel after every failure, bang came the reply “I did not fail 2000 times as I invented 2000 ways how not to make a bulb, and only 1 how you actually make one”, rest as they say is history.
