Fresher’s just out of college have great friends, big circles and you could be the one who is always to start the brilliant discussion, you are one who is telling people and you know what people in hostel listened to you. When you are out of college in the Race for survival into the corporate, you will find things different. You always speaking would draw more trouble than appreciation. This does not mean don't speak, but this means listen first, understand the topic and situation and the humbly put your point. People will love you for this!

A Smile brings hearts near

Sometimes people talk and give instructions to their juniors or take instructions from their seniors. Taking or giving instruction is just robotic, it lacks the human touch! A smile on your face relaxes the person in front of you no matter who he is. Always try to wear a smile on your face, but be cautious use it according to the situation!

When you applaud you win hearts

When you work with someone, especially the people working for you or your juniors its your responsibility to keep them engaged. When you appreciate someone you win hearts, you build a confidence for someone and gives them a feeling that they are important. Every management guru will teach you, if you want to grow take care of your team your surrounding you will grow automatically.

Don't think of revenge it will shatter you

You might face many situations where you have lost because of someone. If you are the one who is thinking of getting up with bolder move then the chances of your success is much higher than the one always planning for  a revenge. Always rise your success will automatically kill your enemies. 

Be the one who makes people laugh

Ever thought of the guy in your college canteen who is always surrounded by friends always laughing and enjoying the moment? People love who can make someone happy and laugh, think of boss can you make him laugh? Do he like being with you? Grow you skills, read a lot you will have lots of things to talk! 
Caution: Don't by cheap joke books to make people laugh and don't make fun of you.

Empathize

Never think the world starts and ends with you. Think logical people have their own problems which you would never face. Place yourself into his place and try to feel the issue, you would be a great friend, team leader, manager or whatever you are.

Do you think you can build the rocket alone

It is very exceptional that if you are reading this blog  and still you have the ability to move the earth on your own (You Googled me so you needed help to find me !! ) but if you are the one like me and rest of the world you will need a team to get it done. So the main point is be a team player, trust your team build your team and you will have success always around you.

Bitching..... aah let it be in the Dogs world

Be the person of honor people hate to listen complaints it’s done by only one community known as "Looser". Don't be looser be the doers, have the guts and face problems directly on face. You can be bad at that moment but you will always be an example.
