Attitude – The deciding factor of success

3 min read

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the water close to TJapan has not held money fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing Boats got bigger and went further than ever. The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish. If the return trip took more time, the fish were not fresh. To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their Boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the Boats to go further and stay longer. However the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish. And they did not like the taste of frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower prize. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and still them in tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull and lost their fresh fish state. The fishing industry faced an impending crisis! But today, they get fresh tasting fish to Japan.

How did they manage it? To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks but with a small shark. The fish are challenged and hence are contently on move. The challenges they face keep them alive and fresh.

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull? Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active. If you’re steadily conquering challenges, you are happy. Your challenges keep you energized. Don’t create success and revel in it in a state of inertia. You have the resources skills and abilities to make a difference. Put a shark in your tank and see how far your can really go!


It is the weakness of the attitude which is directly responsible for bringing weakness in character and in turn your personality gets shaped accordingly. The shark put in the tank are not big enough to eat even a small fish but the weakness in the character which has been imbibed by the fish seeing a shark makes all the difference. It is the attitude which finally gets shaped permanently by a perceived fear which in reality is not there. Most of us are the victim of this phenomenon during our life time. Some of us analyze it and get it out of it but most of us are fearful of even making an analysis of the same due to another perceived fear that the intensity may increase.

People who have made the history were those who were always eager to get out of their comfort zone. As soon as they reach their comfortable zone they get out of it and move forward to search another and this process goes on for ever and ever. In order to be successful one must miss something in life. A person who has got his permanent comfort zone can be a successful individual as he is satisfied with what he has.

Movement keeps us energetic and vibrant. Our movement is directly related to our attitude. A slow attitude results slow movement and an energetic attitude having an achievement motive results in fast, steady and calculated movement. Movement keeps us mentally as well as physically fit as they feel that a physical recession will cost him enormous. We are born free, fly free and so are our thinking.
