The Falcons Podcast Intro
Episode 01 – What is the one secret of getting success and growth?
I’ve studied many models, strategies and studies about what it takes to make a person successful and I reached to ta conclusion that one of the simplest & most important secrets to growth and success in any discipline is ACTION. Mark Twain once said: “The Secret of getting ahead is getting started.” Just the simple act of doing. it’s too easy to procrastinate, chase perfectionism and over-think things. People often look at business tycoons, successful industry leaders and wonder how and why they are so successful? A very large part of this is that they simply chose to TAKE ACTION. The research shows that the hugely accomplished and successful people are those that simply tried many different approaches until they found one that clicked and worked.
So what can you do today to take some action towards a goal?

Episode 06 – CHANGE Is Good
The subject of CHANGE is very essential thus almost all the great minds in the history of mankind have shared their remarks on it. Just to give you an idea about the magnitude of importance of ‘concept of change’ I am quoting only couple of quotes from two of the great geniuses that the world ever saw ‘Rumi’ and ‘Einstein’.
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” ― Albert Einstein
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi
Change is the only constant and its inevitable. It happens and cannot be avoided or stopped. The only clever thing to do is to adapt to it. In this episode I have tried to shed light on the importance of change as well as highlighted few examples and stories about adaptability and change.
