When I started my MBA one of the first things that caught my interest was reading about the Fortune 500 'league'. I took time in studying renown companies like Ford, Hewlett Packard, CocaCola, Kellogg, Nestlé, and so on. The common thing bout these companies is that they all have stories behind their big successes. Most oof them never imagined they'd pan out the way they are today. The fascinating aspect of their stories is that they were resilient, consistent, determined, and they learnt from their numerous mistakes. They were also willing to change their attitude and adjust to the wind of events in their surrounding. This is quite contrary to what we see today,especially among the youth, who are towing the paths of 'instant gratification'. They want to resume work today and buy a 'Jeep" today today. They want to set up a business and start counting six digits profits immediately. While these outcomes are not bad themselves, it is pertinent to note that success has an order. These earlier mentioned companies have success stories that span over two to three decade ,yet they are still forging ahead. People who are not willing to apply these success principles are often frustrated and may resort to vice to "make-it". Their is a saying that " Little Drops of Water Makes a Mighty Ocean". I don't know if that saying is still valid today.
