1 Have faith in yourself
One of the most popular quotes from Ratan Tata says – ‘I don’t believe in taking right decisions. I take decisions and then make them right.’ When you are dealing with life’s hodgepodge, every minute you take a decision. Some decisions are right while there are some decisions that may cause situations to take an unpredicted turn. But one has to keep his/her head strong and work according to the plans.
2 Adopt a wider vision
Being flexible in your thoughts and actions is very important when you have to cross many hurdles in life for realising your dreams. Ratan Tata has stated that – ‘If you want to walk fast, walk alone. But if you want to walk far, walk together.’ Success is a journey and generally not a cake walk. When your end goal is far, then instead of creating hustle and bustle for being a part of the rat race, be adaptive and take advantage of every change in situation. .

He personally visited the families of the 80 employees who were affected because of the 26/11 attacks. He remembers almost everyone by their first names, and is not dismissive.
4 Never look back and repent
In this regard, this is what Ratan Tata has to say – ‘There are many things that, if I have to relive, maybe I will do it another way. But I would not like to look back and think what I have not been able to.’ Many people’s favourite free time task is to wander in the past and think of all the unfortunate things that could have been different if they had acted differently. But this unproductive task will only weaken your spirits as you will start focusing on your demerits.
5 Be open to criticism
As per a famous quote by Ratan Tata, ‘Take the stones people throw at you and use them to build a monument.’ Whenever you endeavour to do something you like, you won’t always receive appreciation. There will be people who will try to pull you down and criticize to shatter your spirit. All you need to do is just ignore all the criticisms and focus on your work.
