|“Winners don’t do different things, they do things differently”, that’s the gospel of management guru and motivator, SHIV KHERA.|
|Shiv Khera is the founder of Qualified Learning Systems Inc. An educator, business consultant, a much sought after speaker and a successful entrepreneur, Shiv has many feathers in his cap. He works to inspire and inform people, helping them realize their true potential. He has taken his dynamic personal message around the world. Shiv has been recognized as a “Louis Marchesi Fellow” by the Round Table Foundation. His numerous interviews have appeared in newspapers, magazines and various radio and television shows internationally.|
|Shiv left India after losing his family business of coal-mining to Nationalization. In the USA, it all began very humbly for him, washing cars to selling life insurance. He had his share of failure and struggle before he attended a lecture by Norman Vincent Peale whose motivational teachings changed his life forever. “After that lecture I realized that I was my own biggest problem, and then the direction of my life changed,” declares Shiv Khera. His client list includes the who’s who of the corporate world.|
|He has authored three bestsellers. His first book “You Can Win”, which came out in 1998, has sold over a million copies worldwide. His much-awaited second book “Living With Honor” hit the stands in August 2003, becoming an instant bestseller. Then within a span of six months in February 2004, his third book “Freedom Is Not Free” was released, also to become a bestseller.|
|You Can Win: An international bestseller, it is a practical and a motivational tool crafted thoughtfully to ignite the human spirit. Whatever Shiv preaches he practices in his life. In his own words “sympathy is, I understand how you feel.” “Empathy is, I feel how you feel”. According to the author, the definition of the winning edge is to achieve excellence rather than perfection, as excellence paves the way for progress. Success and obstacles go hand in hand, success is determined not by the goals we achieve but by the obstacles we overcome to achieve our goals.|
|Living With Honor: Shiv feels that it is better to be honorable than to be honored. The book offers direction for living with pride in a cluttered environment. Here, the author wants us to introspect and propel ourselves into action with a clear direction. Responsibility and prompt action help us to take courageous stand to resolve challenges and lead us towards honorable living. This book will help clarify issues that concern us on a day-to-day basis and will equip ourselves to handle real-life situations.|
|Freedom Is Not Free: While his previous books have concentrated on individuals this one has concentrated on society. He firmly believes that a progressive society is the basis for individual progress of its people. He is of the opinion that we should stop thinking on narrower lines of caste, region or community but move together ahead as Indians, otherwise we can never prosper as a nation. This book is a result of the author’s refusal to tolerate injustice, corruption and oppression any further. He calls upon the common man to stand up and fight for principles so that Indians can live with dignity and prosperity.|
|We are born with five senses. Successful people have a sixth sense — common sense.Ability without dependability, responsibility and flexibility is a liability.
Failure is a detour, not a dead end. It is a delay, not a defeat.
Commitment says, “I am predictable in the unpredictable future.”
Sincerity is no measure of good judgment. Someone could be sincere, yet wrong.
The lesson from history is that ‘we never learn.’
It is not our position but our disposition that determines success.
