‘MONEY’ is NO More A Keyword’
How A Top Rung MIGHTY-Mover Helped In My SEARCH To A Life of Richness
The picture below is the reason for this article.
It’s a screen-shot of the FREE purchases of the book by Dr. Mani during the the period of THREE days
just last week [Nov 15 – 17, 2018].
By a stroke of ‘LUCK’,
. . . I made an important decision.
and that . . . was to have the courage
[which I did in 2008]
Reading a comment by my Facebook friend Arun Agrawal on Dr. Mani’s FB post about the free downloads of his book [a fully revised and updated..]
I made a comment on reply to his comment.
Part of my reply goes thus:
. . . without using the word ‘money’ !!
That’s astonishing – right!
. . . and shockingly surprising to find people, seemingly NOT searching the word MONEY.
. . . The name of the book [UPDATED & REVISED] & the link is:
How To Be Rich: How Strategic Investing And An Abundance Mindset Can Make You Wealthy
(Dr.Mani Growth Guides Book 1)
. . . Here’s my review on :
Made for the original publication on 2012 May 23
The story begins here ~ Tapping into The INTERNET
by a grade TEN schooled former drunkard who did not hail from IT, Marketing & HR – BUT deciding to go Full-Out using the computer to market himself & empower others VIA the meaning & purpose of life.
~ To be a USEFUL Human Being who Delivers Value ~
Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian with his blog & his work with The Dr.Mani Children Heart Foundation was discovered by me while going through the EVERY link in a book I had purchased  which was written
by Joe Vitale.
Synopsis 2001 – 2007
I’ve had enough at the workplace.
. . . and also had, succumbed to the irresistible & irrepressible seductive maneuvers of alcohol.
I also need to mention of the sad extent to which:
. . . the memories of our beautiful days of dating had been made to be erased completely from my mind – then.
Almost just over a decade before this , Emirates Airlines took over the management of the national carrier around March / April 1998. New heads of of departments were flown in from their home-base in Dubai & the restructuring of organization was done with by mid 1999.
In-flight services & Ground-handling [airport services] was under the ‘Head of Service Delivery'[HOD] – hailing from Scotland & having worked previously in Singapore for SITA [the telex folks].
The HOD had earmarked his people for selection for various reasons. I was called into the office on a Friday & was almost convinced it’s prudent if I handed in my resignation.
I was shocked as I had no plans ever made for such situation. This was the only job I knew to perform. I describe my functions in the airline as – serving meals on / in an aeroplane & keeping the washrooms clean.
I have always said it,
Said it, for a long, long time.
. . . way before a change on my life was ever imagined by me or anyone else.
NB: [Only exceptions were my wife, mother & brother because they knew very well that my drinking brought damnation to everything associated personally closely to me]
Scene – Back in HOD office ~
I kept hesitating to accept the suggestion put forward by the HOD. Finally he said, “Think over during the weekend & let me know the first thing on Monday morning“.
He further quipped, “I hope you will. Will accept the resignation offer”
[This was way before the ‘Voluntary Resignation Offer’ was put out in late 2000].
Scene – The Monday morning ~
I inform HOD that I’m not taking the offer being given. He felt I was challenging them. In fact it was. HOD gave me a warning. In case of any incident, I was told ‘Off, you go & no compensation’.
I left his office & was back at work.
Come 2001 ~
I was nearing the halfway mark of my fifties, depressed, desperate & drinking
with a THREE DECADES PLUS service in the airline
Finally I Decide – to Quit for Good,
that being – QUIT working FOR somebody else Unless WITH
Except when, I was hired to snap into formation with them  ~
.. . and two yrs later, in  ~
When talking about ‘self discovery’ to a young group of people
a ‘jet fighter’ adorns each picture on the wall, and in one of them are the three words below as part of the whole description.
‘EXPLOITING core potentials’!
The truth is beyond me to comprehend that, at every millisecond almost TWO thoughts flashes through our minds.
Please, Never DECIDE to quit an existing job, immediately – like me.
[ 50,000 divided by total number of seconds per day – is how the figure 0.57 was arrived at:
and 86,400 / 50,000=0.57 ]
Jan Carlzon (born June 25, 1941) is a Swedish businessman.He is most noted for his achievements while being Chief Executive Officer of SAS Group from 1981–1994.
At the time when he took over the at the helm of SAS, the company was facing large financial difficulties and losing $17 million per annum while at the same time having an international reputation for always being late.
Who knows of!!
. . . what could have happened, if I decided to hang on!!
One or more of these – as I track back & THINK on my life,
. . . which could have ended in death by:
– a road-accident [while walking around ]
– an alcohol induced death by coma or organ failure
or / and / with
– a divorce
– being kicked out of the job without compensation
Addiction, is tough to get rid of and does not limit its capability, only with substances like alcohol.
Let’s Talk, I’m easy to talk to & I’ll let you know more of addictive forms
that hampers one’s personal growth while also
screwing up a country’s economy & productivity – at large.
‘Being busy’ all the time but when nothing is actually taking place, is just on of those.
‘BS’ is another – a happening game & a trending thing presently on the increase – and it appears to be rather taking place exponentially!
Boy! how about the addicted to rig systems to attain higher echelons ?
I smile, as I’m scribbling these words that says. . . there’s more & a lot more !!
Having undergone THREE dilemmas in my life,
Let me mention one of those & name it ‘Dilemma ONE’:
Get into serious action to rectify the habit of consumption & keep the job at the place I disliked anymore to hang around
[32 yrs was hard to let go off – with SIX more to go till I hit my sixtieth].
Leave the the workplace & stay at home without any money [while making an effort to get out of the problem ‘with the habit of drinking’].
I quit my job to become jobless on May 27th 2008 & that ‘dear reader’ is when I grabbed fear by its horns for the first time.
Yes, it was & IS very risky business.
TEN years & am quite used to it & so very comfortable.
This is the first book by Dr.Mani I read & went on to enrol with the coaching / training /mentoring then.
Thank you for reading this far!
