Success Mantras that we can learn from Mr. Dell

Leadership, Leadership skills, Soft Skills, Software Development, Training

Successful people can carve stories by their sayings and their actions.

Michael Dell, who got his first computer when he was 15, quickly disassembled it to see how it works. His such conviction and clarity of purpose made him the youngest CEO of a company ranked in Fortune magazine’s list of the top 500 corporations.

Michael Dell has said some golden words that can teach us a lot about success. He says,

“Real entrepreneurs have what I call the three Ps (and, trust me, none of them stands for ‘permission’). Real entrepreneurs have a ‘passion’ for what they’re doing, a ‘problem’ that needs to be solved, and a ‘purpose’ that drives them forward.”

“People ask me all the time, ‘How can I become a successful entrepreneur?’ And I have to be honest: It’s one of my least favourite questions, because if you’re waiting for someone else’s advice to become an entrepreneur, chances are you’re not one.”

“You don’t have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream.”

“There are a lot of things that go into creating success. I don’t like to do just the things I like to do. I like to do things that cause the company to succeed. I don’t spend a lot of time doing my favourite activities.”

Based on his sayings mentioned above, we present the ‘Success Approach’ for every professional and entrepreneurs.

Step 1. Be Observant and identify the areas that needs some improvement or intervention. Be it your surroundings, your work area, your society or your country. Is there a problem that needs to be addressed?

Step 2. Now that the problem is visible, that is the areas that can bring forward the opportunities to create something new, innovate, initiate or perform your duty.

Step 3. Thus, you now have your purpose in front of you. Now is the time to carve your path.

Step 4. The purpose gives birth to the big dream. To present the solution in a big way.

Step 5. Others may have doubts about the dream, the solution. But the faith that will have on your dream will lead you to the path of success and glory. Here, it will be a test of your passion.

Step 6. Further, create the framework, the strategies, the processes.

Step 7. Now that the problem is visible, the solutions is clear, the procedures and the framework is developed, getting into it and working tirelessly will be the key to success.

This approach has been developed on studying the quotes given by Mr. Michael Dell. We would like to thank Mr. Michael Dell for sharing such great thoughts and showing the path to success.


Thank you.



Highly reliable Indian Psychometric tests

Assessment Centre, HR, Leadership, Leadership skills, Psychometric Testing, Quantum Leadership, Soft Skills, Training

Salahkaar has over 30 in-house tests. These are highly researched and valid tests especially relevant for Indian setup.

Reasons for the origin of these tests:

  • Formation of a cartel based in Singapore controlling Afro-Asian market including India. (Indicate a tinge of Monopolistic hegemony).
  • Discriminatory policy of the cartel in selling, licensing and marketing of MBTI.
  • Lower reliability & validity (r=.30 for Indian sample of average age group of 22 years. That means, only around students’ sample). MBTI is well researched but validity is doubtful in the Indian, Asian and African context.
  • Unreasonable popularity based on marketing rather than scientific acumen of MBTI (Very nature of Scaling limits it).
  • The above reasons and some more necessitated a genuine Afro-Asian test of similar nature but with better reliability, validity and applicability as well as cheaper to suit their economy.

Why it is high time to dump international tests and adopt Salahkaar Tests which are valid for Indian market?

  • Salahkaar Tests are scientifically tested and found highly reliable and valid in the Indian and Nigerian (African) context.
  • Based on the same theory (Jung’s like MBTI and MBTI at Work) but also borrows heavily from the Indian concept of ARDH-NARISHWER. It maintains the robustness and adds scientificity.
  • History in the making. Unique in India. These groups are apart of the History making being the part of the early few Workshops of its type.

The Subconscious and Conscious Learning

Soft Skills, Training


I felt inspired, I got the wow feeling, I got mesmerised…

Oh, I think I learnt something new!

Since childhood, we have experienced such wow feeling for certain things when we saw it for the first time and those were the moments we gained true learning. The moments when we gained experiences that remain with us for a long time like an inspiration that makes its mark somewhere in our brain, in our heart.

Remember? How a complex theory was explained beautifully by a primary teacher and we remember that theory even when we have grown an adult not using it even once in actual life?

I am sure we all have experienced this type of learning. That’s because, that learning was not taught to us, it was explained like a story. It was an experience. We felt involved, the experienced the feeling of being part of the story.   And this experience of being part of the story remains with us, always.

There may be several theories on learning, but I believe learning has got its own stages…

Stage 1 – The Inspiration

Stage 2 – The Experience

Stage 3 – The Positioning of this experience in our mind

I call it the PIE model of learning

And when we make use of our learnings in certain way, we again go through few more stages. I believe those stages are …

Stage 4 – Mind allocates champions to work on this inspiration. Those champions are our dreams, ideas, planning, etc.

Stage 5 – Mind sends signals to body for execution of the plan

Stage 6 – Experiencing the process and results (this stage depends on stage 4)

Stage 7 – After the results stage, we move back to stage 1. Back to inspiration that we gain from the results.

& the cycle goes on!

Let’s keep our eyes open for these stages and remain conscious about loose links between these stages. Wherever required, look for opportunities, join the loose links and gain the most from your learnings. And lastly, keep looking for those wow moments, Happy learning!
