Being A Leader Patton Way

General Patton was great leader. I will indulge into various characteristics of his leadership one at a time.

• Very important principle in his leadership was, “you have to lead yourself before you can lead anyone else.” During war in his command he showed leadership by being in the front line with people and leading them by example. Once his soldiers saw him doing things he expected from them, they did not held back from his leadership. They did what he did and that is reason he became very successful general. He gave himself a command to lead and lead his people successfully to victory after victory.
Pull not push. Lead from the front and lead with example. Show the people who are following you what can be done. These were the principles he followed.
Recognize your team’s achievements. Give credit where it belong and do it with utmost sincerity.
Show courage under any circumstances.
• Want to succeed? Show steadiness and be steadfast.

All these qualities added up to make him a leader. Now examine your own personality and see what you have and what you are lacking. Now if you want to lead a successful life develop characteristic you don’t have. That will give success beyond your imagination.

“The General George S. Patton Story” a documentary YouTube video describes his characteristics and achievements:

Take Care Of People Less Fortunate Than You

The GOD, Universe, Almighty or Whatever You believe in is the names for the same supreme being. We are all creation of THE ONE and are equal in all respects.

There is one trade in this universe you can never lose. That is trade of giving to the less fortunate. Does not matter what you believe in, if you give with the feeling you are doing service to the GOD by serving his people. He looks upon that with kindness and rewards you ten folds. Your thoughts should be on service not on rewards. In my culture it is called Nishkam Seva (selfless service). So find a hungry person and feed him and or his family this season and do not expect anything back. But GOD will surprise you with lot more than you can expect. It does not even matter how much you give so long you give whole heartedly. Do not show off that how much more you are spending in giving. Anonymous giving is even better. But give it to really needy people instead of giving to organizations where most of your donation goes on to pay big salary of the office bearers. Grass root organizations that take care of needy are better choices. Giving on the basis of need, and not based religious convictions of the receiver is best choice, because we are all children of the GOD.

GOD Bless You All!

How You Teach Yourself?

After you learn anything by reading, how you really teach yourself?

There are few ways to do that:

Teaching it to others (like friends or colleagues). When you teach others, you should articulate the material so well that people you are teaching can understand it. It will make you also proficient in what you are teaching.
• If you don’t feel comfortable in teaching others, you can teach it using your imagination. They also call it teaching in your mind’s eye. Just imagine that you hall full of audience and you are speaker as well as audience. You ask yourself a question. Then as a speaker answer saying it is a good question and regurgitate what you have learned earlier. Articulate the material same way as if you are teaching a friend or a colleague. This will clearly enhance the learning of the material.
Learning from mentors in real world situations. Observing them and then doing the same way.

Creating Habits To Succeed

What we do in our lives depends upon the habits we have developed in the past. To start life we desire, we need to create new habits which will have a positive impact on us going forward. Sometimes bad habits are so much entrenched that it is difficult to move away from them. We keep coming back to them again and again. To break the cycle we need to consistently develop new habits to replace old habits.

We should start the process of slow replacement. As we gain momentum we will be able to achieve success quickly. Here are simple suggestions to kick start your success:

Read every day Set a time, does not matter how much, but must do it consistently.
• Listen to motivational audio daily. Again do it consistently.
Attend events, meetings or functions, as often as possible.
Develop relationships and connections with other like minded persons.
Recognize, recognize and recognize other people’s achievements.
• They will start recognizing the change that is happening in you.
• Their encouragement will make you feel like making more of the same changes in you.
• You will take action in your life and that will create new habits.
• That is my present to you for this holiday season. Now you have the system for success.
• Now go make changes in your life and be what you want to be!

Just remember actions you take in life convert to results.

That makes you take more actions, which creates habits.

Recognize And Get Recognized

When you attend big seminars or meetings it is very important to genuinely recognize others. When you cheer for other people for their success with sincere happiness coming out of every ounce of you, they are not the only ones benefitting from that recognition, you do it too. Even among your work place or family and friends, when you recognize other person, it pays you big dividends.

When you recognize others:

  • They feel better.
  • They get more motivated.
  • When you affirm their success, they get motivated to be even more successful.
  • They turn around and recognize you also.
  • That makes you feel better.
  • You also get changed vibrationally
  • You start get more motivated.
  • That increases your chances of succeeding.

Video entitled “Leaders recognize achievements” tells about how recognizing someone affects them:

Take Responsibility For What Is In Your Life

We the humans have been trained to blame someone else or circumstances throughout our lives. We have blamed everyone else in the existence for whatever bad things happen to us. If somebody becomes alcoholic, they say that their parents or their friends were alcoholics or they became so desperate that they had to resort to drinking. That is why they started drinking and became alcoholic. Idea is they blame whole universe and their mother to be responsible for the bad habit they cultivated themselves. This is called mysticism. If they wanted, they could have easily chosen to take responsibility for the bad habit they were developing and made a decision to not continue it. At the least they could have made decision to keep in moderation and then slowly stopped it in near future.

But that could have happened if they had decided to take responsibility for their action in their own life. Their life would have a very positively affected by their decision. It could be any bad habit not necessarily the alcoholism. I am Just talking about anything that ends up destroying your life, your dreams.

Here is very easy solution for all this:

Stop blaming others for things happening in your life.
Take responsibility for everything in your life.
• Once you know and understand that you have done this thing to yourself it is easy thereafter.
• Now you don’t like what is happening in your life and you are responsible for it.
Make a decision to change all that what is wrong and go for it.
• Since you are person responsible. You made it happen. You have all the power to change it.
• There is nothing in this universe to stop you from straightening your life.
• Remember you are in control.
• It is your life and you are captain of your ship. You wreck it or steer it on to beautiful resort.
IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU

With best wishes for your success in your dream life!

Pay Attention And Be In The Present

Almost everyone keeps thinking about what happened in their life in the past. They keep themselves in rut all the time because of that way of thinking. Let us think realistically, you cannot change what happened to you in the past. It is already passed. You cannot time travel to past and correct. It only happens in the movies. It is beyond your control. So let us lay it to rest and step forward in our lives.

As far as future is concerned it is beyond your radar at the current time. You cannot leap forward and change it to make it better for you in the future. Though you can make it better in future if you plan ahead for future at the current time. That only leaves us a choice of understanding and changing our present situations.

Since we mostly worry about our past and future and spend most of thinking time being miserable with the same feeling. To improve our lives we need to concentrate on our present. We should pay our one hundred percent attention to our present condition and take steps to correct whatever we need to change our outlook. Once we modify our thinking from living in the past and be in the present, we enable a wave of changes in our current life and thereby also positively impact our future.

So to be the best you can be, live in present to make your FUTURE BRIGHT.

Monitor Your Emotions

Nature has provided humans with a radar system of our own. It is called gut feelings. Some among us are have natural understanding of it without knowing how it is happening. They may not know how and why they find out what is going on before it happens, but they do. If they consider how they feel about a situation when they are going into it and follow their emotions at that time their decision is usually right.

We can develop that trait of us so that we can have that universal guidance every time. Since feelings are vibrations and are physical in nature. They are capable of attracting similar vibes back to us – A quantum physics principle. What we should do is understand that feeling and act on that feeling and let universe guide us into right circumstances. This feeling arise in your Solar flexes and is called Gut feeling (intuition). More we start monitoring it, more proficient we will become in understanding it. Women are in a different state than men as regards to this phenomenon. They are better equipped hormonally than men to have gut feeling.

As we understand gut feelings and learn to harness them they can help us make decisions. These feelings are the vibrations which universe sends to you from circumstances beyond your radar screen to guide you to your right path. Let us listen to it and obtain success which we all deserve.

The video I included from YouTube is little less vibrant, but please stick with till end. It has a lot of lessons you can learn. It is real story of Magnus Walker’s life. Go with gut feelings by Magnus Walker Video tell a story about GUT FEELING and how it affected his life:

Does Practice Make You Perfect?

The old saying is, “Practice makes you perfect.” There is truth in proceeding statement. Yes practicing the same thing again and again will make you proficient in whatever you are doing. But it may not make you perfect in it. If you are practicing to do it incorrect way, it will only make you good at doing it wrong way. So it is not only important to practice, it is also imperative that you practice the correct way of doing that thing whatever you are trying to be perfect in.

So to be perfect and expert in whatever your goal is, you need to first find a perfect way doing it. Then you should practice in the correct way you found and that will make you perfect in doing it.

But in real life you need not be perfect all the time. Sometimes a little imperfection is OK, because it lets you start doing things quickly. Like you made a decision to do certain task, and took action to work on the project even though you have not come up with a perfect plan. Another reason for not waiting for perfect answer to your situation, because by the time you come up with perfect solution, the demographics of the situation change and your perfect solution to situation is not perfect any more. So in reality perfection is not that important criterion to succeed. Taking action is more important than being perfect all the time. That is corner stone in the success of most of elites of the world.They make a decision, take action and modify their plan as needed during the course of action. That is how wars were won and people achieved unbelievable success in their lives.

But practice do have a place in being able to do things like a expert as you can see in YouTube video (Practice makes perfect)below:

Mistakes Are Results Of Your Action And Are Needed To Succeed

Some time when you make a decision and take an action, you may fail. Don’t get into despair and feel bad about it. Instead consider it as what it is. Consider it as a proof that you found one more way it won’t work. Mr. Thomas Edison when tried to invent a light bulb failed thousand times and every time he failed he said he found successfully another way it won’t work. He did not consider his failure of experiment as his failure. In end he became successful. If you fail in anything try again; chances are that you will succeed. Don’t ever give up. You may stumble and fall down on the way to success, so long you get up one more time you will be successful.

Only reason anyone fails anytime is when they give up trying.

These people would not become so successful if they had given up. Famous failures in our history are depicted in this YouTube video below:
