Hi, everyone. I hope you're keeping well.

00:00:02 --> 00:00:04

I'm going to talk about 2 things today,

00:00:05 --> 00:00:05

success

00:00:06 --> 00:00:07

and retirement.

00:00:07 --> 00:00:09

And I want to tell you that they

00:00:09 --> 00:00:11

don't see eye to eye with each other.

00:00:12 --> 00:00:14

Success and retirement can never see eye to

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

eye with each other. And if in your

00:00:16 --> 00:00:19

career, you feel that you're going to retire

00:00:19 --> 00:00:20

at the age of 60 and you've made

00:00:20 --> 00:00:22

it big already in life,

00:00:22 --> 00:00:24

you're probably deceiving yourself.

00:00:25 --> 00:00:28

The biggest deception is to think that I'm

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

successful

00:00:29 --> 00:00:31

and I'm going to retire at the age

00:00:31 --> 00:00:34

of 60. You can't be successful and retire

00:00:34 --> 00:00:35

at the age of 60.

00:00:35 --> 00:00:37

Let's look at all these people who made

00:00:37 --> 00:00:39

it big in their life. All these large

00:00:39 --> 00:00:40

corporate organizations,

00:00:41 --> 00:00:43

all these big entrepreneurs out there in the

00:00:43 --> 00:00:47

world who continue to contribute to their life

00:00:47 --> 00:00:50

on a daily basis. They have long crossed

00:00:50 --> 00:00:53

the age of 60, and yet they keep

00:00:53 --> 00:00:53

productively

00:00:54 --> 00:00:56

adding back to the society. How do they

00:00:56 --> 00:00:58

do this? They do this because they're ready

00:00:58 --> 00:01:01

to renew their challenges on a daily basis.

00:01:01 --> 00:01:04

They know that in order to be successful,

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

you need to have a dream.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

You need to envision a dream, and you

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

need to focus and believe in yourself that

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

your dream is going to become a reality

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

one day. That's the kind of focus you

00:01:16 --> 00:01:16

need to have.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:18

You can't be successful

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

when you're ready to take on a risk,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

but you fear the possibility of a loss.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:26

Please understand this. You can't have a fear

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

in your heart and still aspire to be

00:01:29 --> 00:01:32

successful. So please understand that in order to

00:01:32 --> 00:01:32

be successful,

00:01:33 --> 00:01:35

the challenge is to take on risks in

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

life. Yes.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

Some risks will pay off, some may not.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

And if they don't pay off, you need

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

to go back and revisit

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

your strategies. You need to rework on your

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

strategies, but you don't stop. You keep renewing

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

your challenges on a daily basis.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:54

The easier way out is that you work

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

in an organization

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

and you keep moving from one position to

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

the other till the time you reach the

00:01:59 --> 00:02:00

age of 60,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:02

and then you retire

00:02:02 --> 00:02:04

and then you sit back and enjoy whatever

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

money you've made in your life, what is

00:02:06 --> 00:02:09

the productive capacity of yours after 60?

00:02:10 --> 00:02:13

You see, people who are successful in life,

00:02:13 --> 00:02:14

they don't stop.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

Success is not

00:02:17 --> 00:02:20

defined for them as reaching a certain position

00:02:20 --> 00:02:21

in life.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:25

Rather, for them, success is to renew the

00:02:25 --> 00:02:25

challenges,

00:02:26 --> 00:02:28

to meet some challenges, and take on new

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

challenges, and they do this till the end

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

of their life. So for all of you

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

out there, my dear corporate professionals,

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

it's good to have a career plan. It's

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

good to have a retirement plan, but you

00:02:38 --> 00:02:40

need to have a change in the mindset

00:02:41 --> 00:02:41

today.

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

The mindset has to change today.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

If you want to be successful in your

00:02:45 --> 00:02:48

life, if you want to keep contributing productively

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

even after your retirement till the end of

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

your life, That mindset has to change today.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:58

It cannot happen at the age of 60.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

And at 60, you cannot train yourself to

00:03:00 --> 00:03:03

take on new challenges every day. The challenges

00:03:03 --> 00:03:05

that you start today.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

Take on risks. There will be some risks

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

which will pay off. Some risks may not

00:03:09 --> 00:03:12

pay off. But if they don't pay off,

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

let not the fear of loss hold you

00:03:14 --> 00:03:15

back.

00:03:15 --> 00:03:18

Look at your dream. Envision your dream in

00:03:18 --> 00:03:20

front of you, and keep focusing towards being

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

successful in your life. Thank you so much
