Success, it is something which I think every person wants in life. Success is a thing which decides the reputation of a person in society. It is more to oxymoron that it comes with ease. To consider a person successful, it is must to count its struggle and achievements. Wealth accumulation, lifestyle option, and social impact are the parameters by which a person to be called a successful person.
I have seen many people, including me, finding different ways to get success. But there are no ways of it, only a hard work can give us that ‘Success’. Tricks can only give us money but a hard work always pays off. Our hard work can be an inspiration for others and one should always remain in the quest to make it an inspiration.
On a day, I was scrolling on my LinkedIn feeds (Shubham Varshney) and I came across to an article of Forbes. And the article was on Questions to ask a successful person. So in post, I going to share my own written questions which I asked some successful persons around me and their answers. The first person with whom I played JAM was my Father, who has done everything in his life and given everything to his children and also made himself a man-of-honors. The next was my Boss, he has also achieved a good value in the society and contributing his best.
Questions to Ask a Successful Person
Q.1 Do you believe in God? If yes, then how it manifest to your soul?
A- This question I asked because I too much believe in God and I just wanted to know whether a successful person also does or not. And the Answer was yes.
My dad says the continuous music given by the heart is the sole evidence of the God. Even the joint working of the senses in the manifestation of the God.
On the very same page my boss said that the controlling of the gender, this balanced world is all which can make you believe in God.
Q.2 What would you like to do in your free time? And how you get habitat to it?
“In the life of a successful person there is no free time” said my boss. And if he gets some free time would like to do more work, just to keep pace with his daily life routine.
I would like to tell you people that behind my sanctimonious believes my parents, especially my father has played a major role. He keeps telling me that the God is present everywhere and I saw that whenever he gets some free time, he starts chanting the name of almighty. There is no way to get habitat to it ‘It is always in the mind’.
Q.3 In your lethargic time, how you keep your mind in a positive way?
Someone has beautifully said that a time is lethargic or peaceful is only depends on beliefs. If our goals are set then there is no time to feel low and it is not possible that the time remains same all the time. Ups and downs are the two features which show that we are living. So, whenever you feel low, keep telling yourself or push yourself in the belief that “yes, we can do it”.
I would like to share one thing also that I loved very much. This very question I asked one of my closest friends and she answered it very beautifully “I often do daydreaming and my dreams make me very positive and energetic”.
Q.4 Does it really matters to you that what will people say if you take any step?
“Not really” was the answer given by both the person. If the step must have to be taken for the betterment of many then it doesn’t matter what will people say. And in my opinion, this is the wisest action taken by anyone, because if someone or many will enjoy the life by our step then it has to be taken.
Q.5 If anyone is rude to you what will be your gift for them?
I must be proud of my father, the answer that he gave to me is “first of all, I would try to calm down the situation and if it doesn’t work then I will try to move out from the situation very politely”. This I think must be the best gift for them. Ignoring negative people also a wise step.
Q.6 What time or what moment, you consider a person successful?
This question is really best answered by my boss and fortunately it is inscribed in my mind. He says “Success is more of a journey, it has no particular point. The journey to do something is called a success and those who keep their pace up in that journey are the successful persons”. Really I was stunned by his answer.
Acquiring basic needs and maintaining a lifestyle are also the job of a successful person. As my father is ‘de-facto theist’ he said that one who keeps himself more closely to the almighty is a successful person.
Q.7 What would you like to call a person who loves reading books? And if I ask you to live in a library will approach the books?
The answers were they love a person who read the books because they have that patience which comes after a great effort. The one who reads the book has a most creative mind and huge living mind. And yes they approach the books but when it comes to the work they will leave at that very moment.
“Putting the things at the right place in life is the thing that matters” this is the best line that I got from my boss.
Also, I would like to add one more quote which I got from my friend when she sees me while reading books.
“I thought of reading because it seems to be a good hobby but at next very moment, I feel like, no this is not my job. So it requires a lot of courage to read books. Hats off to readers”.
Q.8 If you ask to hire someone, what will be the qualities you want in that person?
“Will to learn is the only quality that I want in that person. Either you are a leader or a follower.” this was the answer given by my boss (CEO of the company).
He also said that a good follower becomes a good leader, it only matters that how much you are willing to learn.
These are all the questions which I will ask a successful person whenever I get the chance to meet a successful person. To become a successful person one must be a very peaceful and calm and these are the things for which I have to live.
Make your list of questions and bursting out of your curiosity ask them to a successful person when you meet them.
