Seminar on Successful Career and Interivew (via Barama Project)

Sunday, 11 am of July the 29th

I was invited to give a two hour lecture on decision making, career and interview tips. I was compelled to be a part of Barama Project because it was dedicated to promotion of Azeri Youth. Their innovative ideas will transform a lot of lives. As I entered the room with a group of highly motivated young people I felt an intense feeling of excitement. I was happy to be able to share my story and experiences that would play a demonstrative role for many of them. It was amazing to hear their questions that showed how passionate they were about their dreams. They were dreamers but they also were active doers. They were committed to their future success.

As the session was about the end I remembered my first years, my first baby steps. It was emotional to see these guys look into my eyes and searching for that very answer that could possibly change their lives.

I was honored to be able to answer their questions, give them my tips on dealing with time, interview and decision making.

The whole world is waiting for you!

A lot of questions come and go. They all expire at some point in life. But some questions always linger in your mind. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Who am I?

These questions are simply put. Though they require an immediate reply. Most of us will never answer. We avoid them trying to dodge at times. Some of us answer for the answering sake. None will be completely satisfied. But only some of us will dare to remain truthful to themselves. Truth in this case is simply admitting that we don't know our purpose in the beginning. We may not know it in the middle of journey. But at the end we will all have the pieces to our puzzle.

So, I dare you to start with admitting...then continue with for your inner voice...see for yourself what makes you different than others. See what your "mission" is. Become what you are supposed to be.

I know it sounds to sweet and easy. But it is worth a try...thousand tries...To search for your fundamental identity...

Anywhere you go you will see it coming after you...anytime you start convincing yourself that it is no use giving it a try...anytime you do that...know that you are working against HIS will.

God has ordained everyone of us to take a special role. We try several roles but only one becomes our dearest. Only one.

This role requires no masks, no false assumptions, no conflicts. This role is a messenger of our inner peace. Peace that we always seek but rarely find.

Obsession is what drives us towards our mission. We are never fully satisfied untill we find our purpose. We can not sleep at nights until we have unresolved matters.

Each one of us has the ability to make a difference. We are special. Any influential speaker on earth is constantly hammering this point to his audience.

They feel the special fire inside. Fire that brings people together. Fire that lights many other fires.

When you find your voice you instantly change your surrounding. Your voice becomes pure and energy full. As you speak people want to hear more...they want to follow...because they also have questions inside that require answers...

Grab your microphone and speak out...speak as a man that found his purpose in life. Only then you will have a privilige of being happy and fulfilled.

Good Luck!

The best knockout in your life...

It is hard to play a game that you don't like. In fact it is hard to play it with those that you dislike even more. Everytime when you put new mask to your face you catch yourself on the idea that one day you will not be able to take off that God damn mask anymore. You do it because you think you have no other choice.

When I became a trainer I understood that if I don't like a particular game be it for real or fore playing sake I can make my own one. Brand new game that has not been played yet. It is so inspiring to fight for your own way to success. Success... what is in fact the very meaning of success? It is a tremendous effort put to fight yourself on a daily basis. Every day the fight goes on starting in the early am and going until the last pm. Every day you see your enemy and you hear him scream at you with an awful voice. Voice of your past mistakes and fears. They cultivate in your head to the point when you want to explode.

Somedays you win. But these days are so "some". In most of the days you lose to your enemy. Your enemy is better than you in any sense. He is amazing liar. Argumentator. Diplomat. The Lord of the LazyMen.

You lose because it is his game. It is his rules and his tricks. You lose because you play with him in his hometown. You fight him outside yourself.

He is intelligent and very convincing. Almost the best law practitioner. You stand no chance in his game called COMFORT ZONE.

What to do then? You are sick of losing to him in that ZONE of SUBMISSION. You submit to his will. But his will contradicts to what you deeply believe in. YOUR DREAMS, AMBITIONS and GOALS are all waiting for you on the other side of river. He broke your boat with his ugly facts. He gave you food and shelter. And now you are nothing but a miserable shadow of what you once used to be...A WARRIOR!

YES, YOU ARE A WARRIOR...and YOUR whole life was made out of fighting! You fought as a Sperm for your fought as a child for your parents fought as a student for your grades and you fought for the GIRL of YOUR DREAMS! YOU WON! YOU WON EACH TIME! And this time is no different than others!

So, do not let him deceive you. Do not forget about who you were, are and will always be!

Play with him in your ZONE. Your zone is RISK! RISK to change. RISK to win. RISK to put everything at stake to cross that river. Because only in RISK you find peace and your blood starts running like Husain Bolt!

Look at him in the mirror. Look at what he made you look like. Play not his game. Play your own Game. Let it be YOUR SUCCESS STORY!

Fight him...fight him with everything you have...fight that man you prefer to call YOURSELF! And then the game will be over. When you knock him down let the refree count slowly and celebrate with defeaning silence and joy!
