It was interesting viewing these six powerhouses and success stories in business. They were all different but seemed to all share a common theme. Many of them talked about being willing to take a risk, make mistakes, accept failure or rejection.
There is one common theme in almost all the messages – “do what you are passionate about” and I totally agree – If you are working on something that you are passionate about then it wont feel lie work and growth will follow. Excellent reminder.
Again, each of these messages themes comes with the same risk that was drilled during out leader presentations: be passionate and be willing to take risks. I really find this an excellent reminder especially as I am conducting my job search and maximizing opportunities as an (almost) newly minted MBA.
Satya Nadella’s words about separating the life from the work is not possible. This statement resonated with me because recently I was talking with someone I just met and they asked what I did – I am a Controller at xxxx, his response was oh that must mean you like to be in control. It was a ha ha moment but it was truthful in my personality that yes I usually am the one to set things up, plan vacations, dot the is and cross the ts, etc. It is an obvious remark that I had never put into those words before but as these leaders note and appreciate is that by being true to your personality your level of success and happiness climbs immensely.
Passion, commitment and willingness to fail are common themes among these great leaders. They all have an incredible drive and vision that keeps them motivate to pursue their goals.
These videos were very interesting to watch. What I can take from these 6 people are:
find my passion and never give up, remember everyone makes mistakes, don’t complain, look for opportunities, be a life long learner and learn from those around you.
