"Your Attitude, not Aptitude, will determine your Altitude" - says the reputed American author and motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar. This opinion is vindicated by Oprah Winfrey, world famous talk show host, actress and producer, by saying, "The greatest discovery of all times is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude".

There are millions of real life stories which tell very loudly and convincingly how the right attitude changed the whole course of lives for betterment and prosperity. Swami Vivekanand also tells, "It is our mental Attitude which makes the world what it is for us..."

सही नजरिया ही जीवन को संवारे
नित आपके व्यक्तित्व को निखारे.
(Right Attitude makes the life Better, Makes your Personality even Better)

"A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into Skills and uses these skills to accomplish his goals" - says Larry Bird, the well-known American Basketball player and coach. Rightly, without the matching skills which, of course is the outcome of regular learning/training exercise, nobody can achieve the desired success despite having other personality development inputs. It’s a continuous and dynamic process which provides the on-going opportunity for self-evaluation and competence improvement for achievement of professional excellence-the buzz word in corporate world everywhere.

 नर हो या नारी , हुनर है सबके लिए जरुरी           
इसमें जो रहेगा दक्षवही प्राप्त करेगा लक्ष्य.
(Skill is necessary for all- both male & female, Those who become adept, definitely achieve their Goal)

Who doesn't know the "BIG B" of Bollywood and his very popular TV show: "Kaun Banega Karorepati". The Ads that were taking frequent rounds in various channels during that period used to re-emphasize in a very creative way the importance of Knowledge - the differentiating factor in everybody's life. Francis Bacon, the renowned English Author and Philosopher, thus said long ago," Knowledge is Power". Everywhere we hear - public sector and private sector alike, that we need knowledge worker. Undoubtedly, acquiring knowledge to become wise is the guarantee to dispel mental darkness which in turn facilitates consolidation of human values in our life for the good of each one of us.

इसका हमेशा रखें हम पूरा ध्यान       
ज्ञान से मिलता है मान-सम्मान....
(Always keep it in mind, Knowledge ensures name, fame ...)

So, by now, you could make out what I intended to convey through this piece of writing. Yes, you are perfectly right. The combined effect of right Attitude, Skill, and Knowledge (ASK) has been pleasantly phenomenal in the life of all those who value its multi-dimensional character.

As always, I'm keen to know what do you think on this subject. Hence, request you to post comments to share your views and experiences.
