"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference" was rightly said by Winston Churchill. With the right attitude you can make a huge impact on things you do. Success and failure are said to be the two sides of a coin. The outcome or the difference between success and failure lies in your attitude. MBA is all about attitude. All your preparation can go waste if you don't have the correct attitude towards the things you do. Below defined are your Mantra's to success in MBA.
Self motivation is the key:
Mohammed Ali says "To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you're not, pretend you are." Motivation is the prime factor and the optimum driving force for most of out achievements in life. Your endeavor towards your goal and courage to take risk defines your "I can do it" attitude. Always have a positive mindset and never allow negative thoughts populate your mind. Stay away from people who are discouraging and de-motivating. Always remember that, nothing is impossible in life; Dreams are achievable if, you are determined and positive in your approach.
Getting admission for MBA in top institutions is not easy. If you are really serious about your career in business administration, then you should stay focused and strive hard to achieve your goal. "The key to success is to focus out conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear" - Brian Trump.
You should keep reminding yourself about your goal; keep telling yourself that you are definitely going to achieve it with your dedication and perseverance. Use the formula "divide and rule"; divide your preparation in smaller chunks. Your preparation should be put to check periodically by attempting questions from the topics you have prepared and the then later analyze the results. It will help you identify if your preparation is moving in the correct direction or not.
Importance of Time Management:
William Penn once said "Time is what we want most, but what we use worst". Well these words would just sound simple but mean the most. Students always complain about time management issues, not able to complete the paper, missed out few questions because time was over etc. Time management is and will always be an issue with everyone until and unless one manages time efficiently. An important key factor to achieve success is efficient time management. It's necessary that you use time which is available as efficiently as possible.
Time management is not only necessary during the exam but also during the period during which you prepare for the exam. Proper use of time during the preparation period will do wonders for you when you are actually attempting the actual test. During the exam, attempting questions blindly like we use to do in our school and college will not be helpful. Competitive exams are all about your preparation and how you are able to adapt to the current situation. It's the key factor which will help you get ahead of others. Follow the following 3 points on getting the question paper. It will help you during the test.
1) As soon as you get your question paper, scan it quickly.
2) Make a marking against the questions which you find simple and would like to attempt first. Marking should be done with a pencil.
3) Now first solve all the questions which you have marked and then move to the other questions.
Also during solve these questions make it a point that you do not spend a lot of time behind questions that you know and end up with less time for other questions. If you are not able to solve a question leave it and move to the next question; you can always come back later and solve it if time permits. Solve the simple ones first and then move to the difficult questions. Try to have some time in spare so that you can recheck if you have marked the correct options.
Students should Work on their communication skills. Written test is not the end to all your MBA worries but a start to the ones to come. I am not saying that the later stages are worries but I mean to say that the work is still not done; you have more to do to book yourself a berth in a premier MBA institute. Your aim should be to make it big i.e. get admission to a top institute. Keeping this big picture in mind you should keep you self prepared for group discussion and the personal interview. Everyone has all the ideas in mind and knows what to say but the problem is that you should be able to convey it to the interviewer. At last what matters is how well you are able to convey your ideas to the group or the person interviewing you.
"You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can't get them across, your ideas won't get you anywhere." is very rightly said by Lee Iacocca. So work on you communication skills and fine tune them for group discussion, personal interview etc. Your encounter with the interviewer will be like the encounter we see on national geography between a loin and a deer. Your interviewer is an expert and possesses the skill to make any person nervous.
You should develop the right interest:
Having the right interest will make your task easier and make your overall task easier. It will help you get ahead of others and aid your preparation. With the right interest you will move ahead without stressing yourself too much. The right interest will naturally develop certain skills; for example, regular reading will surely improve your reading speed and also your vocabulary. Achievements in organizations and also your college activities are surely going to add value to your profile. If you are a bit weak in communication, then you should try to remove your hesitation and fear by directly talking to people yourself. Make a habit to do calculations mentally, think creatively, read newspaper and be aware of what is happening in the world and try to have a mature opinion for things.
