Dealing Life Situations

We attain greatness by merits, not simply by taking up an exalted seat, so to be praised, do praiseworthy work. Befriend genuine people, not fools. Be prepared for the future and deal cleverly with any situation that may arise. Be pro-active and plan ahead when it comes to your work. Work is work and if that requires you to be shrewd with someone, so be it. If knowledge is confined to books you cannot use it when the need for it arises. Everyone likes a person who goes over and above the call of duty. Expand your horizon.

Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected in all places. If you in truth want to impress, then you should get expertise in your area of work. That will be the only way you will learn. Speak what would please the man of whom you expect a favor. This does not mean that you need to blindly follow. You should value others opinion and respect others for what they are. There is self-interest behind every friendship. So, even though you might be surrounded by lovely people, keep your attention only on work. You are appreciated when you draw the line between personal and professional life.

If you do not learn anything new from time to time, then you indeed are a failure. If you are doing good work, keep it to yourself rather than mouthing it to everyone. Everyone will appreciate honesty. Those who speak of the secret faults of others will destroy themselves. Instead of bringing others down, aim to go higher up yourself.

Straight trees are cut down while crooked ones are left standing. This does not mean that you should turn crooked to get your work done, but do not get lost in the crowd. Stand up for yourself. No matter what your job profile is, do not be afraid of taking up a new project. People will appreciate a person who goes beyond his line of duty.

Never share your secrets with anybody. If you are entrusted with some secrets, do not spill the beans. Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions: why I am doing it, what the results might be and will I be successful? This means that always think through before taking up a new project. Do not follow things blindly. Once you start working on something, do not be afraid of failure.
