This book tells you what to do and how to do, offering tips on achieving your goals, based on the writer's personal experiences and observation of others. Peppered with powerful quotations, and the sayings of Imam All (AS) and the Bhagavad Geeta, this book will transform the way you look at failure, and will act as a spur to achievement and the attainment of success.

I have great pleasure in introducing the book and commending it especially for the younger generation who generally do not have the tolerance for failure and are anxious to achieve success the short and quick way.
Let me wish Mr. Zaidi, an old professional colleague and a friend, all the best in bringing out this work. I wish that many people take advantage of the distillation of wisdom that is presented in this volume.
I wanted this book to be without a preface and to get straight to the subject, but I was reminded of a Hebrew proverb: "A book without a preface is like a body without soul." I did not want my book to be without a soul, and therefore decided to pen a few words as preface with the following quotation from English theologian Julius Charles Hare: "If I am addressing one of that numerous class who read to be told what to think, let me advise you to meddle with this book no further. But if you are building up your opinions for yourself, and only want to be provided with materials, you may meet with many things in these pages to suit you."
This book provides sufficient material that will enable you to form your own opinions. A book on What to do and How to do offering tips on achieving success, based on the writer's personal experiences and observation of others' behaviour, should be an easy-to-read narration. I have made a modest attempt to collate and describe the tips that have benefitted me personally and included the mantras or ideas that I have observed people acting upon and succeeding.
I make no personal claims regarding the ideas mentioned in the book; you might be familiar with many of them. This book is a collection of success mantras that have been tested and adopted by people who aspired to succeed and have succeeded.
I have had my share of successes and failures too. I began my career as a school teacher and worked my way up to the post of principal of a banking training college. I endeavoured further and became the joint president of a finance company, eventually retiring as the career development head of Commercial Bank of Dubai, a very prestigious Dubai-based bank. This long journey, lined with some road blocks, continued motivating me and fuelled my determination of joining the club of published writers/authors. And I did succeed with my work as a writer; my articles on diverse topics, such as banking, anti-money laundering, management, leadership, customer service relationship management, and communication, have appeared in various newspapers and magazines in both India and the Middle East. My articles on management and leadership were compiled and published in a booklet titled Managerial Skills. In addition, I have authored a book titled Anti-Money Laundering/Anti-Terrorism Financing and Know Your Customer-Bankers' Handbook which went into second edition print. The book has been adjudged the best book on the subject. I would not have been able to achieve all this, had I not religiously followed the principles presented in this book.
As one goes through life, there are millions of hurdles, some small and some really big, that create roadblocks in life. My life is no exception. But, my courage, determination, will, and tenacity helped me overcome these difficulties and adversities.
There are numerous books and articles on self-help techniques to achieve success.
