Most of us want to earn big fat cheques, own super stylish cars, live in a posh locality, travel the world and be happy every day. But have you asked yourself what are you doing to get these things?
I have always said that the key to your professional success depends on your personal development. We want to achieve many things but didn’t want to give the efforts that it demands. Therefore, not everyone owns and get all that he desires.
Well, to help you understand the significance of getting what you want and if you promise yourself to put the efforts it requires then this ASK model can help you.
Presenting ASK Model to you but I will share this in reverse order for better understanding.
#1. Knowledge –
When we turn 3 or 4 our parents put us in a school, That school gives us our foundational knowledge and then we go to college which gives us advance level knowledge. Both knowledge are important for us and not to be missed. You can imagine its significance as you are able to read this article because you have learned the alphabets in school among various other things. School and college education really impacts the person and develops an individual’s personality.
#2. Skills –
When I graduated from college with a B.Com degree my parents encouraged me to search for a job and I guess this is what most parents do in India. Or some even say their children to get married. But if we speak about jobs or doing your own business after studies. What do you exactly do with it? You implement the knowledge that you received in school and college. Isn’t? That implementation of knowledge in practical life is known as skills. You use your voice, hands, feet, etc to perform a particular skillset and earn in return.
#3. Attitude –
When I was employed for the first time in my life after my graduation I worked with that company for only 2 months and I have other couple of jobs where I have worked less than a year. Now, I want you to think that If I have acquired knowledge and am implementing that knowledge in my job in the form of skills then I should be doing that proactively and with positivity. But I am not able to work in a single place for not even a year. What does it signify? This tells a volume about my Attitude.
Attitude is the mixture of your settled way of thinking or doing a particular thing.
My attitude towards my career was not professional. I had to evaluate myself and make it write. We all need to understand the important lesson which ASK model gives us – We can get knowledge, perform skills but to be continue with that performance and to be better in that is the thing of attitude.
It is your attitude towards your knowledge and skills which will define your level of success.
The last thing in the ASK model is actually the most important for you and that is why I put it in the first place. So, I urge you, beloved that hold it fast, make it positive and work on it.
For Your Success, Always!!
