The secret of success
SUCCESS IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF A HUMAN BEING. IT IS THE OUTCOME OF HARD WORK, SINCERITY, HONESTY PATIENCE, AND PASSION. IT'S SUCCESS ALONE THAT GIVES OUR LIFE A MEANING, WRITES DR. MUSHTAQ CHALKOO
The success of a job lies in the satisfaction it lends after it's accomplished. The success lies in happiness and the happiness is the ultimate goal of man. The man is trapped in the cage of life and the success will set him free. However there is nothing absolute about it. So one can pull his thoughts to any heights and reform his state of mind. The conditions of success are only the few that can be expressed in an easy dictum. The success may wave by flukes of fate or fortune. Those who only depend upon luck generally experience bad luck. The ability to hold a job lies upon capability. One must be able to control his work and must be able to be controlled in doing his work. There is no such thing as being too smart but there is such a thing as being too stupid. One may be both able and intelligent and yet without a success. A vital part of success is the ability to handle not only one’s tools of the trade but the people with whom one is surrounded. With the view to do this, one must be capable of a very high level of affinity. He must be able to tolerate massive realities and able to give and receive communication. The format of success does not lie in the job, but in the work with joy and not horror, a wish to perform work for its own sake and not only for to have a paycheck. Stop work when you experience deep depth of exhaustion. The ingredients of successful work are training and experience in the subject being addressed. Given these things there is left only a slim chance of failure, baring the accidents of birth, marriage and fortune as they stay outside the domain of your capabilities. One may have all the money in the world and yet be unable to perform an hour’s honest labor. Such a man would be a miserably unhappy one.
The problem lies in the philosophy that envisages that work is over. It is rooted in the belief that you have done everything and you are to shoulder no further responsibility. It is highly doubtful if this is true. If you think you are indispensable for the job, then you should go down to the graveyard and take a look-those men where indispensable too. This is sheer foolishness. Many shops have got closed but the work is still on. Unfortunately, we have come down to a low level of the ability of the work. It grieves my heart to express that many of our offices depend on no more than one or two men and the additional staff to add only complexity to the activities of the scene. It seems as though the world were being held together by a handful of desperate men who by working themselves to death may keep the rest of the world going. The question goes to say, how far and how long can they? Let us collectively share the load to let the world go on.
