Success Philosophy

happy family

Everybody says that they would like to live a successful life. Yet, few know what success really means to them and even fewer know how to attain it.

Successful people often cite their accomplishment would not be possible if not for their wellbeing in these three aspects – health, wealth & a spirit of giving. Good health can be maintained with regular exercise and eating wholesome food. Wealth can be maintained and increased by investing wisely and insuring prudently against the unexpected. Time set aside for service is invaluable and can bring a change in ourselves and the world.

We have learnt long ago that success is not a destination, but a journey. Success is a day-to-day progressive realization of pre-determined goals that we set. Success is the motive of every student.  In other words, before we can achieve success, we must first have clearly defined goals in all areas of our life. Whether it is to make your first million, start a charity, build a multi-national company or developing a nurturing relationship with your life partner.

Success is a day-to-day progressive realization of pre-determined goals that we set. If the actions you have taken have moved you a step closer to your goals, then today has been a successful day. Of course, the goals we set must be that of excellence. The more challenging they are, the more satisfaction we will experience in their achievement.

In order to achieve excellence in your life, you must exhibit the patterns of Personal Mastery & People Mastery. Personal Mastery is the ability to take charge of your life and bring out the best in yourself. People Mastery is the ability to bring out the best in others through your ability to communicate and influence.

Exhibit both qualities in abundance and you will be on your way to phenomenal success in life.


Key to Success with Performance Appraisals

Was there ever a time when your manager or supervisor called you for a meeting to discuss about your performance appraisal? How did you handle it? Were you pressured or challenged? What are the effects on it on you? If you are working on a company, performance appraisal is not a new word.
Many managers and executives actually dread having to go through performance appraisals. If assessing the company’s people one-by-one is not dreadful enough, having to face them every single day knowing how (poorly) they performed in the past year, month or week can become even more stressful.
Sometimes, employees who think that their work has not been assessed well by the management can hold resentment and grudges for a long time, which could not only affect their future performance but also the relationship among the employees of the company as well.
Below are a few essential keys to success in performance appraisals:
Performance appraisals must not just happen during that single event but every day, although not necessarily in paper. For example, developing employee skills and capabilities can help in improving their performance at work. Motivating them with rewards such as cash, travel or other forms of incentives could also get them to do much better at work. Managing and monitoring employee performance is vital to keeping together a good team equipped with the right skills for the job. Every opportunity should be treated as a chance to motivate and appreciate good work being done.
Of course, it is important to ensure that one’s performance in management is improving as well, in order to efficiently manage the performance development of other people. One cannot simply wait for that single day of the year to look back on how the company has been led. Every moment should be a window of opportunity for one to improve in their leadership skills.
