Live the life you have imagined 

By Peter Ryan

BT 202009 INSPIRATION 01Lakshmi Mittal, the son of Mohanlal Mittal who ran a steel business, had spent his initial years living with his family on bare floors and rope beds in a house built by his grandfather. He attended a Hindi-medium school and graduated from St. Xavier’s College in Kolkata. When he was 26 years old, the Indian government placed limits on steel production, so he went and opened his first steel factory in Indonesia.

Starting in Indonesia, he transformed the moderate family business into a global steel giant spanning 14 countries and with more than 150,000 employees.

Mittal Steel has since grown from strength to strength, and today it is the world's largest steel producer at 70 million tonnes a year. With 10% of the world's notoriously fragmented steelmaking capacity, Mittal is undoubtedly the ‘Sultan of steel’.

拉克希米•米塔尔(Lakshmi Mittal)是经营钢铁企业的莫汉拉尔•米塔尔(Mohanlal Mittal)的儿子,最初的几年与家人一起在祖父建造的房屋中光秃秃的地板和绳床生活。通过努力,拉克希米•米塔尔成为2005年《福布斯商业杂志》(Forbes Business Magazine)的世界第三富有的人。这说明了努力总能带来回报。这是成功的垫脚石,也是世界上所有成功人士取得成功的方式。没有“成功的秘诀”,就没有成功。基本上,成功,繁荣和梦想不是自己创造的。它们是通过艰苦的努力创造出来的,只有您才能实现自己的目标。本文为读者介绍了为了取得成功的努力方式。

Hard work always pays off!!!

BT 202009 INSPIRATION 06Through hard work, Lakshmi Mittal became the third richest man in the world, according to Forbes Business Magazine in 2005. This illustrates how hard work always pays off. It is the stepping stone to success, and it is how all the successful people in the world have achieved success. None of the “secrets of success” will work without it. Basically, success, prosperity and dreams aren’t created by themselves. They are created by hard work which only you can do to achieve your goals.

Hard work is thus the foundation for everything worthwhile you will achieve in life, and there’s no easy way to do it. You have to find your passion, stay focused and work accordingly. You have to stay devotedly motivated. Success never comes to someone who is lazy; we need to be active and hard working to achieve success.

Time Management

BT 202009 INSPIRATION 07Time management also plays a very important role in success. Arcelor Mittal has a presence in over 60 countries which all have different time zones. Since internal communication plays a very important role, time management is critical. There are regular conference calls with all the CEO’s, management and employees.

Furthermore, business owners and managers lead by example. The values and work ethic displayed by them will have a direct influence on company culture, and many times on business profitability. Time management improves the competence and effectiveness of a business, and business owners should continuously work on developing, and refining their own time management skills.

The priority of management is to protect the company and employees and work accordingly, and decisions need to be made promptly, which is never an easy task. Decisions should also be made focusing on protecting the long-term sustainability of the company and its employees.

Advice for individuals is to prioritize your work with a to-do-list which would help you to stay focused on hitting your goals. Ask yourself, "What absolutely needs to be done by the end of the day?" Rank each item by its importance or time limit, and start working down the list. If anything unpredicted comes up during the day, you can rest assured, knowing that the most time-sensitive tasks have already been addressed.

Passion for work

BT 202009 INSPIRATIONAL 05Lakshmi Mittal had a keen interest in his field since working with his father. It’s only when you love your work that you can achieve success in your desired field. Loving your work inspires the people surrounding you every day. Being excited and enthusiast cannot be emphasized enough in terms of how it relates to your team working harder, being more attentive, and eventually more successful at their job.

Challenge yourself to keep improving

Technology is changing the world we live in every day. In order to stay pertinent, it is important to innovate, regardless of your industry. This could mean new programs, new thinking or new processes, or new countries. I believe that you are either moving forward or you are becoming obsolete. Challenging yourself to expand in different countries will motivate you to think big, work big and earn big. By working with different cultures, and different people in different time zones, we become more efficient in what we do, which ultimately drives greater profitability.

These forces were always in Lakshmi Mittal’s mind while he was working towards success. It is very important to be motivated, but this motivation should always be beneficial not only to you but to all your employees and management as well. Success can only be achieved with the motivation and support of the entire team.
