“Greatness Guide: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Grow as a Global Leader”– Professor M.S.Rao

"There comes a special moment in everyone's life, a moment for which that person was born. That special opportunity, when he seizes it, will fulfill his mission—a mission for which he is uniquely qualified. In that moment he finds greatness. It is his finest hour."  - Winston Churchill

Your level of dreams determines your level of success. Bigger the dreams, greater the success! Broader the vision, greater the impact! At times, people are miser to dream big resulting in lower level of success. Therefore, what is essential is to dream big to achieve big in your life.

When you dream big, your imagination levels go up and you will be inspired to work harder to achieve your goals. Additionally, a great dream must be accompanied by great efforts. Only when the vision is broader and efforts are enormous, you will be able to make it big in your life.

Life is not a cakewalk. You find lots of distractions when you intend to accomplish your goals. You must not give up when faced with stiff opposition and distractions. You must be able to find out the reasons for distractions and remove the roadblocks to keep yourself aligned with your goals.

When you want to achieve big, you must have clarity in your mind about the way to accomplish your goals. In fact, clarity in mind provides clear path to your success. Break your goals into short-term and long-term and align them effectively. Even if there is any failure to accomplish your short-term goals, your long-term goals serve you as a motivation to move forward.

Invest your efforts daily in your passionate area. Allocate a few hours every day in it to accomplish your goals. Read good books and online resources to update in your area of interest. Connect with the experts through associations and social media. Currently social media have become a strong tool to network with likeminded professionals and update with latest knowledge instantly. Open a blog or website to share your views and ideas regularly with others immediately through social media. In this way, you will be able to serve more number of professionals with your knowledge, wisdom and experience. Help people and provide solutions to their problems.  Over a period of time, more people will look up to you for guidance and assistance. You will excel as a domain expert and thought leader gradually. Find out the unexplored areas to create a space for yourself. It is a highly competitive world where people are into rat race. Hence, being unconventional in your strategies will help you stand out from others. Find out what your friends in your area of interest are doing. Connect with them and share your ideas and insights. Build a strong team of ignited minds to grow as a thought leader. Creating groups in social media helps greatly to be identified as an expert. It builds your leadership brand.  If possible, author a book or contribute a book chapter to gain more acceptance and visibility. Books give your credibility and visibility. You will be respected by others. Take their feedback and improve yourself.  If there is any criticism, work on those areas to improve your ideas and insights. Healthy criticism is always desirable as it checks ego and hubris. At times, people take their ideas and insights for granted. Healthy criticism helps them check and improve their knowledge.  When you follow this methodology you will be able to excel as an international thought leader outsmarting your competitors.


Here is the summary of your greatness guide. Find out your passion and explore the gaps in it. Observe your external environment with an open mind. Find out the areas of challenges to provide solutions. Create both short-term and long-term goals.  Connect with likeminded professionals both physically and virtually. Make use of social media to share your ideas and insights. Take feedback constantly to improve your leadership ideas and insights. Be consistent in your energies and efforts. Manage your external distractions to keep yourself on the right track and fast track. Over a period of time, you establish your credibility and visibility and achieve greatness in your life.  Remember, nobody achieves greatness overnight. It takes years of focused efforts, patience, persistence, struggles and sacrifices.

Good luck to your greatness!
