Free Chapter ― Professor M.S. Rao’s Upcoming Book “Stop Talking and Start Leading”






Dear friends,

I am excited to share with you that I authored a book on inspirational leadership. It is tentatively titled, “Stop Talking and Start Leading.” Here are the details about the book with a free chapter. I would appreciate if you could share your thoughts about this book on social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.

 Introduction―Be Curious and Creative to Make Your Life a Masterpiece of Service


Curiosity is a great characteristic that people rarely sustain in their lifetimes. Some people struggle to sustain curiosity because of their internal and external challenges. They cannot encourage curiosity to come to the fore as they condition their mindsets with their learning, experience and environment. However, there are a very few individuals who sustain their curiosity levels throughout their lives to excel as extraordinary achievers. In this context, we will discuss about curiosity and the tips to spark curiosity.


Are People Born with Curiosity?

Undoubtedly, we all are born with curiosity. Children are more curious and observe when they were born. They question a lot when they are kids. As they reach next stages such as adolescence, young age, middle age and old age, the curiosity level drops as they are conditioned to think as per their observations, environment and education. That means they get into a box mentality. Only the extraordinary achievers maintain their curiosity levels by continuous reading, learning and leading. They keep upgrading their knowledge, skills and abilities to sustain their curiosity levels. It makes them relevant, acceptable, and honorable to lead a complete and meaningful life. 


Curiosity and Technology

Technology is both a boon and bane. With the advent of technology, children are used to gadgets, and they get everything on platter without applying much thinking. It kills their creativity and imagination. It is great to hear that children are habituated to technology but it is also  a challenge because they get readymade answers for their questions through their smartphones.


Tips to Spark Your Curiosity

Authors are curious and creative because they must be curious to learn various perspectives to create their own perspective. Here are some tips to create your curiosity.
  • Focus on your art and craft.
  • Don’t conform unless substantiated with facts and figures. Question rationally. Be rebellious, if required.
  • Observe people around you.
  • Identify your biological clock to unlock your creativity. Find out the time at which you are the most productive to leverage it effectively.
  • Journal regularly for a few minutes everyday to capture your ideas.
  • Synthesize your ideas. Mix and match them to apply practically. 
  • See the big picture.
  • Experiment and explore the world unbiasedly.
  • Read books regularly.
  • Be prepared to learn from your experiences especially from your failures.
  • Above all, lead by example.

Every child is curious to know things. Children observe a lot and learn from others’ behavior and environment. They emulate their parents and the people around them. In educational institutions, they emulate educators because they spend their most time in the educational institutions. Succinctly, if you want to sustain your childlike curiosity, you must travel widely, read regularly, learn continuously and lead by example.

Educators create curiosity while teaching to invite and sustain the attention of their students. They often ask questions to their students to involve them into teaching and engage them effectively for a longer time. It helps students discover, analyze and understand themselves. It helps students apply the acquired knowledge, ideas and insights in their real lives to excel as healthy citizens.


Curiosity in my Professional Life

I read books from different genres regularly. I explore new things and experiment new areas. I don’t mind when I fail. In fact, I failed many times because I explored immensely and learned many lessons. I know that I am a morning man and I leverage that time which is the most productive to author books and write articles. I am aware that I am highly creative after I wake up from sleep. Hence, I intentionally sleep in the afternoon for some time so that I can concentrate and be creative to write.

I am curious to learn. Hence, I talk to people around me when I am traveling or in the gym to understand different perspectives from people on various topics because everyone is unique in the world. I often throw a question to someone and listen attentively to capture their perspectives on various topics. The diversified experiences in my life including military, business, teaching, training, research and consultancy sustained my curiosity levels. Hence, everyone must learn from multiple sources including from their observations, education, experience, teaching and training to sustain their childlike curiosity.


Conclusion

Lots of inventions have occurred because of curiosity. Advanced technology and comforts are the outcome of curiosity. We have grown as a civilization because of curiosity. To conclude, curiosity is inborn in all humans. Everyone must hone and sustain it to make their lives as masterpieces of service.

Free Chapter ― Professor M.S. Rao’s Upcoming Book “Success Secrets to Become a Superstar”






Dear friends,

I am excited to share with you that I authored a book on inspirational leadership. It is tentatively titled, “Success Secrets to Become a Superstar.” Here are the details about the book with a free chapter. I would appreciate if you could share your thoughts about this book on social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.

About The Book
“To be the best in the world necessitates your drawing upon all your capacities. In the doing, you will draw on what is unique in yourself. No one can replicate it.” ―James Strock

This book unveils success secrets to become a superstar. It helps you dream and achieve big in your life. It explains dreaming, learning, communicating, networking, branding, marketing, teaching, training, living, caring and making a difference to the world. It outlines inspiring leadership lessons from Meka Ramakrishna Sayee who overcame several challenges to accomplish his lifetime ambition to acquire overseas education in America. It unfolds ideas and insights from interviews.

This book is a short course on inspirational leadership. You can easily toss the book into a briefcase or purse and read here and there as time allows. It is a quick reference guide for learners, leaders and entrepreneurs.   

 Introduction―Chase Your Dreams to Become a Superstar

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” —Oprah Winfrey

The term ‘success’ is widely discussed and understood but least practiced globally. In this digital era, achieving success has become much more challenging as most people are aware of the secrets and strategies to achieve success and are well equipped with the tools and techniques of success. In reality, very few people achieve success who follow the road less travelled and walk their talk. Hence, let us discuss about the secrets to achieve success to excel as superstars.


Tips to Touch Your Tipping Point

Although there are innumerable tips to achieve success, here are some of them to achieve an amazing success and touch your tipping point.  
  • Dream but don’t daydream. Take action. Remember, time and tide waits for none.
  • Chase your dreams. Work hard and smart to accomplish them.
  • Identify your natural talents. Build skills around them.  
  • Explore alternative options to accomplish your dreams when you are hit with the roadblocks.
  • Explore ideas rather than to brood over thorny issues.
  • Never lose your hope. Trust in your abilities. Follow your gut.
  • Build a network of positive people. When you surround with positive and encouraging people you live with positive vibrations. You become more optimistic and inspire others.
  • Don’t bother for failures. When you want to achieve big, you tend to make big mistakes. Learn lessons from them and move on quickly to your next higher level.  
  • Focus on curricular and extracurricular activities equally to lead a meaningful life. If one of your extracurricular activities become your profession, sky is the limit for you because you enjoy what you do throughout the day and throughout your life.  
  • Everything is possible in this world. When you look at inspiring people including Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, and Colonel Sanders, they bounced back from their failures and carved a place for themselves in the history.

If achieving success were easy everybody would become an achiever and the word ‘success’ would lose its relevance. In fact, success comes with lots of struggles and sacrifices. What the outside world perceives about the achievers is that the luck played a major role for touching their tipping points. In fact, it is the years of their consistent efforts that helped achievers reach what they are from where they were. If someone achieves success overnight, it goes away overnight. Presently some people come to limelight on social media instantly but fade away immediately because success came to them by luck.


Conclusion

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” —Arthur Ashe

Everyone is blessed with a huge potential. However, only a few people recognize their inherent talents in their early stage and chase their dreams throughout their lives. 99 percent of the people sacrifice and compromise their dreams and aspirations due to social pressures and cultural constraints. The only people who succeed at the end are the ones who invest their efforts with a focus consistently and relentlessly to accomplish their dreams. Hence, don’t compromise your dreams. Chase your dreams despite setbacks. Remember that you have one life. Live your life fully to avoid regrets later.
