In the following pages a few important points to ensure SUCCESS are given.  A careful reading of these points coupled with your ‘experience’ will certainly make you get good marks in the ‘Psychometry test’.  



Your Action Plan must define three things:


1. What you want to achieve

2. How you expect to achieve it

3. When you plan to achieve it


These principles are universal. They are applicable in any situation, organization, or country. As Plato said, "Truths are eternal."


William James of Harvard University said, "The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind."


Experience has shown that human resources are the most valuable asset of any business. It is more valuable than capital or equipment. Unfortunately, it is also the most wasted. People can be your biggest asset or your biggest liability.





The foundation of success regardless of your chosen field, is attitude.


If attitude is such a critical factor in success, shouldn't you examine your attitude toward life and ask how your attitude will affect your goals?


Ø  When our attitude is right, we realize that we are all walking on acres and acres of diamonds.

Ø  Opportunity is always under our feet. We don't have to go anywhere. All we need to do is recognize it.

Ø  The grass on the other side always looks greener.

Ø  While we are dyeing the grass on the other side, there are others who are dyeing the grass on our side. They would be happy to trade places with us.

Ø  When people don't know how to recognize oppor­tunity, they complain of noise when it knocks.

Ø  The same opportunity never knocks twice. The next one may be better or worse, but it is never the same one.




Just like an absence of ill health does not equal good health, an absence of negativity alone does not make a person positive.


People with positive attitudes have certain personality traits that are easy to recognize. They are caring, confident, patient, and humble. They have high expectations of  themselves and others. They anticipate positive outcomes. A person with a positive attitude is like a fruit of all seasons. He is always welcome.





Who is an optimist? It is well described by the following:


Ø  Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of  mind.

Ø  Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every  person you meet.

Ø  Make all your friends feel there is something in them.

Ø  Look at the sunny side of everything.

Ø  Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best.

Ø  Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

Ø  Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

Ø  Give everyone a smile.

Ø  Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.

Ø  Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.*



Common sense


Education and knowledge without common sense has little meaning. Common sense is the ability to see things as they are and do them as they ought to be done.


We are born with five senses touch, taste, sight, smell, and hearing. But successful people have a sixth sense common sense. Common sense is gained in spite of, not necessarily as a result of, education. The best education without common sense is worthless. An abundance of common sense is called wisdom.



Feed Your Mind


Just like our bodies need good food every day, our minds need good thoughts every day. The key words in the preceding sentence are good food and good thoughts. If we feed our body with junk food and our mind with bad thoughts, we will have both a sick body and mind. We need to feed our mind with the pure and the positive to stay on track. Through constant practice and exposure, we can learn the principles that make a person successful just like we learn to play basketball.


Knowledge is Power


We hear every day that knowledge is power. Not really. Knowledge is information. It is potential power and it becomes power only when it is acted upon.

What is the difference between a person who cannot read and a person who can but does not read? Not a whole lot.

Learning is like eating food. It is not how much you eat that matters, what counts is how much you digest.

Knowledge is potential power, wisdom is real power.


Education takes many forms, it is not just grades and a degree. It is


Ø  cultivating your strength

Ø  learning self-discipline

Ø  listening

Ø  desiring to learn


Continuous positive education leads to positive thinking.





Build a Positive Self-Esteem


What is Self-Esteem?


Self-esteem is the way we feel about ourselves. When we feel good within, our performance goes up, our relation­ships improve both at home and at work. The world looks nicer. What is the reason? There is a direct correlation between feeling and behavior.


How Do We Build Positive Self-Esteem?

If you want to build positive self-esteem quickly, one of the fastest ways is to do something for others who cannot repay you in cash or kind.

This one phrase, "It is my life, I will do what I want," has done more damage than good. People choose to ignore the spirit and derive the meaning that is convenient to them. Such people have tied this phrase to selfishness and I'm sure that was not the intent.


These people forget that we don't live in isolation. What you do affects me and what I do affects you. We are connected. We have to realize that we are sharing this planet and we must learn to behave responsibly.


There are two kinds of people in this world--takers and givers. Takers eat well and givers sleep well. Givers have high self-esteem, a positive attitude, and they serve society. By serving society, I do not mean a run-of-the-­mill pseudo leader-turned-politician who serves himself by pretending to serve others.


Stay Away from Negative Influences


Today's teenagers learn from adult behavior and the media. They face peer pressure. Peer pressure is not just limited to teenagers, it is also prevalent in adults. It shows a lack of self-esteem when people do not have the courage to say "No, thank you," and stay away from negative influences: What are the negative influences?



Learn to Like the Things That Need to be Done


Some things need to be done whether we like them or not; for example, mothers caring for their young. They may not be fun and games, and may even be painful. But if we learn to like the task, the impossible becomes possible.


Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.


--St. Francis of Assisi

Start Your Day with a Positive


Read or listen to something positive first thing in the morning. After a good night's sleep we are relaxed and our subconscious is receptive. It sets the tone for the day, and puts us in the right frame of mind to make every day a positive day. In order to bring about change, we need to make a conscious effort Andre committed to make positive thoughts and behavior part of our lives. Practice having positive thoughts and behavior daily until they become a habit.


William James of Harvard University said, "If you are going to change your life, you need to start immediately and do it flamboyantly."

Success and happiness go hand in hand. Success is getting what you want and happiness is wanting what you get!


Existence alone is not success! It is a lot more!

Do more than exist      --  live

Do more than touch     -- feel

Do more than look       -- observe

Do more than read       -- absorb

Do more than hear       -- listen

Do more than listen      -- understand




ü  Ego

ü  Fear of failure success ; lack of self esteem

ü  No plan

ü  Lack of formalized goals

ü  Life changes

ü  Procrastination

ü  Family responsibility

ü  Financial security issues

ü  Lack of focus, being muddled

ü  Giving up vision for promise of money

ü  Doing too much alone

ü  Over-commitment

ü  Lack of commitment

ü  Lack of training

ü  Lack of persistence

ü  Lack of priorities




In order to get the winning edge , we need to strive for excellence, not perfection. Striving for perfection is neurotic; striving for excellence is progress, because there is nothing that can't be done better or improved.

All that we need is a little edge. The winning horse in the races wins 5-to-1 or 10-to-1. Do you think he is five or ten times faster than the other horses? Of course not. He may only be faster by a fraction, by a nose, but the rewards are five or ten times greater.

We don't need to improve 1,000% in any one area. All we need is to improve 1% in 1,000 different areas, which is a lot easier. That is the winning edge!






People who have overcome obstacles are more secure than those who have never faced them . We all have problems and we feel discouraged some time. Most people get disappointed; but winners don't get disheartened. The answer is perseverance.




True success is measured by the feeling of knowing you have done a job well and have achieved your objective.


Success is not measured by our position in life but by the obstacles we overcame to get there.


Success in life is not determined by how we are doing compared with others, but by how we are doing compared with what we are capable of doing. Successful people compete against themselves. They better their own record and keep improving constantly.


Success is not measured by how high we go up in life but by how many times we bounce back when we fall down. It is this bounce back ability that determines success.


Successful people don't do great things, they only do small things in a great way.

Below are more examples of the failures of successful people:


Ø  Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times while he was working on the light bulb.

Ø  Henry Ford was broke at the age of 40.

Ø  Lee Iacocca was fired by Henry Ford II at the age of 54.

Ø  Young Beethoven was told that he had no talent for music, but he gave some of the best music to the world.


Setbacks are inevitable in life. A setback can act as a driving force and also teach us humility. In grief you will find courage and faith to overcome the setback. We need to learn to become victors, not victims. Fear and doubt short-circuit the mind.


Ask yourself after every setback: What did I learn from this experience? Only then will you be able to turn a stumbling block into a stepping stone.


To a winner, the tougher the competition


Ø  the greater the incentive

Ø  the more motivated he is

Ø  the better the performance

Ø  the sweeter the victory


Success is not in the achievement but in the achieving. Some people never try because they are afraid to lose. At the same time, they don't want to stay where they are because they are afraid to be left behind. There is a risk either way. Ships that go out into the open water face risk from a storm. But if they sit in the harbor, they would rust and that is not what they were built for. That is the difference between playing to win and playing not to lose. One cannot be committed and not take risks. People who play to win thrive on pressure and those who play not to lose don't know how to succeed.


Pressure makes people who play to win, prepare harder. For those who play not to lose, the pressure saps the energy. They want to win but they are so afraid to lose that they can't reach their full potential. They lose energy worrying about losing instead concentrating their efforts on winning.


Losers want security, winners seek opportunity. Losers are more afraid of life than death. Failing is not a crime but lack of effort is.


Character is a Combination


Character is a combination of integrity, unselfishness, understanding, conviction, courage, loyalty and respect.


What is a pleasant personality with character?


Ø  It is a class by itself.

Ø  It is surefootedness and confidence  without arrogance.

Ø  It is being considerate.

Ø  It is knowing that courtesy and good manners take many small sacrifices.

Ø  It is learning from past mistakes.

Ø  It has nothing to do with money or blue blood.

Ø  It never builds itself by destroying others.

Ø  It can walk with the elite and yet maintain the common touch.

Ø  It is comfortable with itself and others.

Ø  It works wonders.

Ø  It is accepting responsibility.

Ø  It is humility.

Ø  It is graciousness in victory and defeat.

Ø  It is not fame and fortune.

Ø  It is not a plaque.

Ø  It is self-discipline and knowledge.

Ø  It is self-contained.

Ø  It is a gracious winner and an understanding loser.


Character building starts from infancy and goes on until death. Character does not need success. It is success. Just like a gardener has to keep weeding to prevent weeds from eating the life of the garden, we need to keep building and developing our character by weeding out our faults.


Positive Believing


What is the difference between positive thinking and positive believing? What if you could actually listen to your thoughts? Are they positive or negative? How are you programming your mind, for success or failure? How you think has a profound effect on your performance.

Having a positive attitude and being motivated is a choice we make every morning.

Living a positive life is not easy; but then neither is negative living. Given a choice, I would go for positive living.

Positive thinking is better than negative thinking and it will help us use our abilities to the fullest.

Positive believing is a lot more than positive thinking. It is having a reason to believe that positive thinking will work. Positive believing is an attitude of confidence that comes with preparation. Having a positive attitude without making the effort is nothing more than having a wishful dream. The following illustrates positive believing.


Give More Than You Get


It is easy to succeed today. We have no competition. If you want to get ahead in life, go the extra mile. There is no competition on the extra mile. Are you willing to do a little more than you get paid for ?


The advantages of doing more than you get paid for are :­


¨     You make yourself more valuable, regardless of what you do and where you work.

¨     It gives you more confidence.

¨     People start looking at you as a leader.

¨     Others start trusting you.

¨     Superiors start respecting you.

¨     It breeds loyalty from both your subordinates and your superiors.

¨     It generates cooperation.


The Power of Persistence


Nothing will take the place of persistence. Talent will not : Nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent . Genius will not :. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.


The journey to being your best is not easy. It is full of setbacks. Winners have the ability to overcome and bounce back with even greater resolve.
