5 Reasons young people go foreign country to work

air

It’s a big world out there and it can definitely seem a little daunting sometimes, but living and working abroad can have so many advantages. Hopefully, by the end of this article, you’re making a move to work in a different country.

Here are 5 reasons why you should make that move:

#1 Self Development

Moving to a different country and working in a different environment gives you exposure to a different culture and different people. It gives you a different perspective that puts you out of your comfort zone and while it may take some time, you’ll realize a different side of you that may have never existed.

From small things like figuring out transportation to how to say ‘hello’ in another language – you would learn how to just depend on yourself rather than another person and it would lead to leanings and self-development.

#2 Learn a Different Language

Imagine working in a Country like China where the widely spoken language is Mandarin and only a percentage in the single digits may be able to understand you.

It would seem a little daunting at first but who knows – maybe in a matter of weeks, the shopkeeper would be able to understand the broken Mandarin that spouts of your mouth and soon enough, you’d be able to joke with your colleagues in their native language.

Another benefit is obviously adding it to your resume.

#3 Gain A Global and Professional Perspective

Living in India and working in a Marketing Firm is not the same as living in Egypt and working in a Marketing Firm.

It could be a little difficult to understand – but living and working in another country gives you a more global view of your industry; an outlook that would have otherwise been confined to the Indian Working Environment.

You’ve also gained the important skill of adjusting to any international working environment.

#4 Add to your Resume

Imagine yourself in a scenario. Person A is pitted against Person B for the same job. Person A worked as an AIESEC INTERN in a Company in Germany for one year, whereas Person B worked in India for the same period.

The HR Manager would prefer Person A, for that person, would have much more to offer to the Company that Person B.

Going on an internship and working abroad really adds so much – not only to your Resume but also to yourself.

#5 Networking Opportunities

You won’t ever get another experience like this where you work in a different country and interact with various individuals in the same Industry.

Working with such people allows you to gain various contacts that give you a unique skill set and experience that you wouldn’t get otherwise and really adds to your overall career.

So, what are you waiting for? Living and working abroad has so many benefits, and the above are just some of the few. Gaining a new experience, meeting different people and stepping out of your comfort zone contribute to your career and to your overall development.

Of course, it’s not all easy, but if approached in a positive manner, this experience could turn out to be one of the best decisions of your life!

10 Things to learn from Mahatma Gandhi

gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday on 2nd October is not only a national holiday celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti in India, it is also commemorated as the International Day of Non-violence by the United Nations General Assembly. The lifetime of the father of our nation or ‘Bapu’ as we call him was full of valuable lessons and insights. Let’s see what we can learn from him:

Mahtma Gandhi

1. Actions speak more than words: Gandhiji impressed people by diligently acting on his beliefs and even people who didn’t agree with him admired this quality of his.

actions-speak-louder-than-words

2. Perseverance: Gandhiji struggled for many years towards India’s independence. He did not give up even during times when things seemed impossible. You all know the results.

3. Continuous Improvement: Bapu was not only involved with improving the status of women, Harijans, small-scale industries; he also believed in continuously improving himself and once quoted “learn as if you were to live forever”.

4. Don’t stress yourself too much: Bapu avoided stress even in the direst of situations. You can see so many pictures of the Indian struggle where he is smiling.

5. Simplicity: He lived a modest lifestyle, wore simple clothes, ate simple food and his long fasts were both a form of social protest as well as self-purification. Amidst all this simplicity, he created waves that moved thousands of people.

 

Gandhiji truly believed in simplicity

6. Lead by example: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”. A major reason for his immense popularity and support for his non-violence approach was because he followed what he preached.

7. Don’t let others change your path: Amidst so many voices stating that his methods won’t work, Bapu stood with his beliefs and didn’t let the critics change any of it.

8. Forgiveness: Forgiveness is better than hatred. And it takes a great deal of strength for the same. As Gandhiji noted ” The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

9. Think positive: Gandhiji believed “A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes“. Enough said.

10. Don’t give up: Things cannot be achieved within a day. Sometimes it takes the time to see results. Don’t let this wait de-motivate you as Bapu once said: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

How to become cool and calm in your life

calm

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out. If you’d like to reduce stress and become calm and cool, put the following 8 steps into practice to be more patient.

1. Let go.

This thing that seems like the end of the world right now? It’s not (promise).Stressing out about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

 

2. Breathe.

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

3. Loosen up.

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense (Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?). Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation (it might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example).

 

4. Chew slowly.

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache). Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish. Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work

5. Enjoy the journey.

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture.

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t. I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week (maybe not even the next day). Stop agonizing over things you can’t control, because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself.

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar. Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out, because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day.

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in the face of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

If you’d like to help your friends learn how to be more patient, pass this along so they can be calm and cool just like you. What helps you manage stress? Tell us in the comments.

 

Important lessons from Narendra Modi

moddi

He came, he saw, and he conquered.

Narendra Damodardas Modi is a name we all have heard of, and the Lok Sabha Elections were enough to prove the faith the country that happens to be the largest democracy of the world has put in this man.

1) Public Speaking Skills
The man has something in his voice that makes head turn. Even the people who don’t happen to like him have agreed that they never miss a speech by the Indian Prime Minister. And we can’t even say that this all is because of someone who writes his speeches, as the Independence Day saw him speaking without any written speeches, and this sure is going to be one of the most remembered speeches from an Indian PM.

2) Discipline
The 15th Prime Minister of India has always led a disciplined life. Ever since he was made abalswayamsevak in RSS, which is known to instill discipline in all its members, he has followed a disciplined regimen.

3) Determination
Ever since he was a child who used to help his father and brother in their tea stalls, he was determined to make it big for himself. He has been associated with RSS since an early age, and that shows the determination that eight-year old possessed and this 64 year old possesses.

4) Detailing
This is something for people who plan a lot. Learning from a meticulous planner that Mr. Modi is, you should care to have a love for detailing. For reaching out to the Indian population, Modi travelled more than 3.5 lakhs Kms and did 400 rallies, even to places where no one usually goes. This micro detailing helps a lot in efficient planning, leading to better results.

5) Love For Technology
The man is tech-savvy and likes to keep himself up to date with all the developments in the field. He tweets and posts important details of his life and journey within minutes of it happening. Even as I write this article, I can see that his Facebook cover picture has already been updated. While we can learn from this, we should also know the clear difference there is between love for technology and being a slave for it.

6) Love For Fitness
Modi is a big yoga enthusiast and never forgets to do it, no matter how busy he is. Perhaps, this is the reason why he is this active at this age. This is also something that we can and should learn from him.

7) Enthusiasm
Even at the age of 64, the enthusiasm with which Narendra Modi lives his life is commendable. Be it playing drums on his recent visit to Japan or answering questions of various Indian students on Teacher’s Day, he has never left his enthusiastic persona.

8) Patience
After foolproof planning, which leads to his confidence, he is not a man who can be impatient and jump on to conclusions or be restless for results. This patience and the tendency of keeping his calm and not behaving like a kid has proved to be very useful for him. It’s a hard sight to see the man angry, overpowered by emotions, or losing his patience. This is something which if learned can prove to be a changing point in our lives.

9) Leadership Skills
If you remember well, he promised to work one hour more than his subordinates did in a public speech. This is not something an inefficient leader would be able to say. He is an efficient leader and leads by his words; learning this skill from him can be beneficial for our professional lives.

10) Humbleness
Even though he is the Prime Minister of world’s largest democracy, his position has not gone to his head. He comes across as a very humble human being and this is evident by the way he addresses the nation and answers all the questions he is put across. Being humble can take you places and this is also something to learn from him.
