You got to be obsessed to achieve mission MBA
For every goal that you set yourself, you need to be consumed by it, possessed by it, to the extent that you don’t rest until you fulfil the goal. Anything less than this would mean that you are either not serious about your goal, don’t value it much, or are ready to compromise with it. MBA is a course that seems to not only guarantee a job to students but also prepares them for the challenges ahead, as they enter the business environment.
The challenge of MBA begins right from the entrance examinations, which are considered to be among the toughest exams in India. For the preparation to be perfect and full proof, the aspirants need to work like a warrior and be focused, determined and unrelenting in pursuit of their dream.
That getting into the best MBA institutes is tough is common knowledge. With the number of students appearing for CAT, XAT, NMAT, IBSAT, MAT, IIFT, CMAT, SNAP and other exams increasing significantly over the years, the challenge to clear it has only become more intense. This competition should be seen as an extra motivation to push yourself and be the best. To achieve this, you need to be obsessed about making it to the MBA course in the best of institutes and use this obsession positively.
Many people who sit for these competitive exams have similar aptitude and knowledge levels. What differentiates the top performers from the rest is their hunger to achieve their mission, to outperform the others and be the best that they can be. Their urge to be successful drives them to follow strict routines and be unrelenting with themselves. How badly you want to get into the top institutes of MBA will determine the path that you take, either long arduous route to guaranteed success or searching for short cuts.
Closely linked to obsession and hunger to crack MBA is the determination. Once you have decided that you want an MBA degree and have credible reasons for it, then you have to develop single- minded determination towards that goal. You need to be willing to make sacrifices if need be and march ahead despite all the hurdles that may block your path. This is what achievers do. They turn challenges into triumphs.
4. Self- belief
Thinking about the goal and meticulously preparing for it, turning it into an obsession needs to be backed up with self- belief. Self- belief is an essential part of one’s lives. The people who attain success in their chosen fields display a high level of self- belief and confidence. You need to convince yourself that you are good enough to secure admission in the best institutes offering MBA and beat the competition. Self- belief is the starting point of success. In the absence of self- belief, your mind will constantly doubt your abilities and jolt your confidence.
Thus, being obsessed about the things you desire and want can bring about a positive influence on your life and encourage you to work hard and go the extra mile.
