Just cos you travel on first class, does not make you first class
Our values and principles of what we believe in, is what shape our inner class. In today’s world there are different kinds of people. There are few who know who they are from within and are driven by their purpose in delivering a value, not just to themselves, but also to the world around them (such people are far and few in between).
And then there are others, who are driven by the image of what they build for the outside world. These people are not concerned about doing good but are driven by looking good. They are slaves to the world for their want of attention and endorsement.
Very important to identify such people in our life because they can suck you dry of energy for their lack of self esteem and complexities.
Why am I writing about all this?
Because in life one of the most important lessons we all need to learn is to make the right choices of people we surround ourselves with. Be it at work, in our social life or even in our family. Peoples choices represent our choices of what we are from inside and these choices play a very significant role in where we end up in life….
So think twice before you decide that you want to hire that man or woman in the company or decide if you don’t want this man/ woman in the company or in your life? Remember people’s choices will decide not just the success of your company but also the success of your personal self along with your happiness……
Where to find good people ?
Lesson number one: Very few people you will find in the first class cabin! What I really mean to communicate here is that, don’t go by the appearance…. Don’t judge by what you see, but try and see what they have done and do… In today’s world there are too many smooth talkers, who say all the right things and seldom practice their talk….
I know it’s tough to find people who are true to their words and we all learn from our decisions about such people. While some of them turn out great, but then those who don’t , they find their way out of the company and your life. The idea is to learn from it and not to repeat it.
As someone once told me “#Nikhil, the five people you spend your most time with- You become them!!! So choose those five people that you want to surrounded by WISELY.”
Don’t let your fear govern the choices of your people, but let your principles make that choice for you…
#Happy-hunting …… God bless!
