" Know yourself and don't let others tell you who you are supposed to be! Love who you are and if you don't love who you are - then change who you are, by your standards. Search within yourself and you will find the powerful 'tools' put in you by the Great Spirit to overcome adversity, achieve success and to be a person of value to the world...starting with those around you."

" At times, despite possessing the right credentials, you may not get a good career break. Emails will go unanswered, the interviewer will be impressed with your credentials, promising to get back to you, and the much awaited email will never arrive in your mailbox! The reason is, we all are presenting our best foot forward in an imperfect market. We do our level best, acquire degrees, gather experience and expect that society will reward us, it doesn't; merit gets sidetracked by extraneous considerations. Someone much less deserving than you gets the coveted job! The Key lies in not becoming disheartened but to keep improving one's profile by doing something new everyday. Somewhere, sometime, your efforts are bound to catch someone's fancy. Then, there's no looking back in life."

I realized this when after completing Ph.D., from one of the finest institutions in India, I expected my mailbox to be flooded with job offers! Despite possessing a premier professional degree in Management Accounting, with Ph.D. and 15 years of solid experience in Industry and teaching, my job applications went unanswered. But I didn't give up and kept doing something new or the other to improve my profile further; I was richly rewarded.

" Always think in terms of other people: they have the same feelings about success, taking care of family, having their name be known once they leave this world, and being a proud human being. Once you know this, you treat everybody with respect and honor. This will bring back to you, from them, a tremendous amount of help and support towards achieving your own goals and dreams."
