I always enjoy Evan Carmichaels top 10 Rules of Success and often share them with you. So here’s Ratan Tata’s top 10 Rules of Success.
- COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR EMPLOYEES
- TAKE CHANCES
- BUILD TRUST
- BE HUMBLE
- HAVE HEROES
- BE YOURSELF
- MAKE A DIFFERENCE
- BE MOTIVATED BY COMPETITION
- DO WHAT CAN’T BE DONE
My favorite is #2 TAKE CHANCES. That’s been my motto my entire life.
In my early business career, I started a retail store at the age of 21. I built that into 10 stores. Eventually, I took a chance and opened wholesale fashion company. I still recall sitting in my office on a Friday evening frustrated at the treatment I’d received from a fabric vendor. At that time, in the garment district in Montreal, I was one of a half-a-dozen females running her own business amongst a thousand men. The large textile wholesaler would not have been so demeaning to a guy.
A lot has changed in the world, and yet, many things remain the same. The kind words of Ratan Tata remind me that I have always been motivated to make a difference, to pave the way for generations to come and to always take chances in all aspects of my life. If you never take risks, you never reap the rewards.
I send you off on your work week with these words: #10
DO WHAT CAN’T BE DONE!
