How to get high in life by developing Resilience & handle rejections.

My inspiration to write this new article comes from an Urdu poet Iqbal (1930s), who once quipped:

Khudi Ko Kar Buland Itna, Ke Har Taqdeer Se Pahelay 
Khuda Bandey Se Khod Poche, Bata Teri Raza Kiya Hai

Its literal translation for my readers who are not well versed with Urdu:

“Develop the self so that before every decree

God will ascertain from you: “What is your wish?”

These powerful words are so relevant in current times wherein there is so much pain in the corporate world, people are losing jobs in name of management jargon ‘corporate restructuring’. Myself is getting on an average 5-6 resumes every day in my mailbox from everywhere across region & world and hope the same is with my network connections.

This article is my attempt to alleviate some pain in people by inspiring them “to be the change that they want to see in the world”.

I recall a wonderful sentence which says “Change yourself and your perception and you see the whole new world opening its arm for you”.

I may be sounding too positive but I cannot help since my blood group is also “O positive- joking..”.

I strongly believe that it’s only by “Being Positive” we can overcome any challenges.

As a case study pedagogy (thanks to my teachers of Retail management course in IIM-A), I always love to follow and study cases from corporates as an example.

Case 1: Netflix:

Blockbuster refused to buy Netflix, in fact, Netflix promoters were literally laughed out of the meeting for $50 million deal.

Today: Netflix is worth more than $100 billion (And where is Blockbuster?)

Case 2:

George Bell, then CEO of m/s Excite, refused to buy Google for $750,000

Today: Google is now worth more than $498 billion (and where is Excite?)

Case 3:

Ross Perot refused to buy Microsoft for $ 60million.

Today: Microsoft is worth $ 507 billion & growing daily (and nobody knows where Ross Perot is?)

See the relevancy of Urdu poet Iqbal’s words in today’s business scenario.

“Develop the self so that before every decree

God will ascertain from you: “What is your wish?”

When people say NO to you, just keep going! Go all out and write your own Destiny but Never Give up.

Your time shall come wherein these people later will be telling everyone how they met you and wish they would have joined you!
