In an interview have you ever faced question like “Where do you see yourself after 5/10 years?”
If your answer is yes think for a while about what was your answer before reading further and if your answer is No read further.
Have you ever wondered why such question is asked or what is the intent of the interviewer or what interviewer is judging you for?
The answer helps in judging between successful people from un-successful people?
Let us see how.
If you talk about your plans and when you expect it to get it done that is sign of successful person but unsuccessful person will say “I hope to do this”, “I wish to do that”
A loser’s mentality always use words like someday, I hope or I wish?
Who invented TV? – An inspiring story.
Scottish inventor, John Logie Baird, first publicly demonstrated television in his small laboratory in the Soho district of London.
John Logie Baird, was not alone who was working on the problem of television and although large companies with great financial support were also working on it, Baird managed to surpass them all with very little money, a handful of unpaid helpers and equipment pieced together using rather unconventional materials and first achieved a recognisable television image i.e. a human face recognisably reproduced on his apparatus.
Moral of the story?
You do not need to worry too much about your competition but work more on building your product.
When it comes to successful online you first step is always having a website and I tell this to anyone who asks me where to start and after all these years, only few have actually done it. Do you know why? They think I have given them a great idea and they need to be doing something about it someday.
Few of my friends have taken more than couple of years to give me a call and ask – where do I start?
That’s not all. When I meet them in some party or occasion they take my number once again (Pretending they lost it) and tell me that they will give me a call tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes.
Moral of the post?
Remember that difference between Goal and Dream is Goal is a dream with action attached to it because If you wish to achieve anything in life, you have to place a time limit on it and judge yourself to plain binary value of “success” or “failure”. You cannot hide from failures and string of failures teaches you more than charm of success.
So take action now !!!
