Many people are enjoying the many changes brought about by the pandemic and the ‘new normal’. Many people expect things to ‘get back to normal’. WRONG!
WE WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THE ‘OLD NORMAL’!
Millions of people are quitting, but many will not be able to find jobs easily.
Many lost their jobs, and many of those jobs may never return. Automation and AI are becoming pervasive.
With the war in Ukraine, high gasoline prices, massive shutdowns across the manufacturing regions of China, and the expectation of high inflation (stagflation = stagnation + inflation), businesses are revamping their supply chains. In the meantime, inflation is running at almost 10% (real inflation is higher in many sectors).
Many skills will be in high demand, others could disappear or drop in demand.
MANY OF THE JOB-SEEKERS DO NOT HAVE THE SKILLS REQUIRED FOR THE OPEN JOBS.
If you don’t REinvent yourself, you will have difficulty finding a job, getting promotions, and worse, see a drop in income.
They say comparison is the thief of joy, but we just can’t help ourselves, can we?
Are you seeing some people earning more, living better, and leading the kind of life you want to be leading? Are you wondering, “What do I need to do to?”
I wondered too, as to what makes this kind of difference in people’s lives. Why have some people with the same education achieved vastly different levels of success? It is NOT native intelligence, talent, or dedication. It isn’t that one person wants success and the other does not. The Successful people have REinvented themselves… and are reaping the rewards. They:
- have a high awareness of their mindset, skills, and capabilities.
- have set clear and measurable goals, and live very intentionally
- have become enormously confident by becoming more antifragile even through the pandemic and the disruptions
- have identified and mitigated the barriers within and around themselves that were holding them back – some were disempowering mindset elements that each of them possessed, and others are what I call the ‘Silent Killers of Success’.
- have developed a business mindset – a set of beliefs and rules that evaluated and capitalized on opportunities for maximum monetary gain, acquired more enabling mindset elements, and got rid of disabling elements.
- have developed business thinking – a systematic way of evaluating the exchange of value to maximize personal compensation.
They are more successful than the average person – whether in terms of money, position, power, happiness, satisfaction…

I have REinvented myself several times – from mechanical engineer to underwater robotics engineer to mobile robotics engineer to assembly robotics engineer to marketer and strategist to venture capitalist to 5-time entrepreneur in a variety of fields.
I have interviewed over a hundred achievers and non-achievers – recent graduates, Nobel Prize winners, CEOs of companies, successful business people… and identified some key differences between achievers and non-achievers.
You don’t have to wait for several years or decades to become more successful.
You don’t strike me as the kind of person who wants to wait decades… You are ALREADY HERE ON THIS PAGE.
This graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) can show you exactly how to REinvent yourself to become more successful.
I will teach you strategies and techniques that you can apply right away to REinvent yourself and BECOME MORE SUCCESSFUL – become an achiever among your classmates, colleagues, friends, peers, family, competitors…
THE APPROACH & KEY DELIVERABLES
I will use a series of conversations and writing prompts to unearth your key capabilities that will inform your immediate, short, medium and long-term goals, and be used on your resume. I will also use a series of unique assessments, worksheets, journaling and interviews that will glean your unique capabilities and mindset. At the end, you will have much greater personal clarity about yourself, your short, medium and long-term professional objectives, the confidence to target prospective employers, and the information for your job interviews.
The approach is different than what almost all career counselors take, and provides a bespoken set of outcomes. I combine psychology, assessments, personal interviews, and reflection to create a composite of who you are (past and present). You will find out a lot about yourself by looking back on your life – understand your mindset, what drives you, identify key skills you’ve developed, etc. We then combine those by looking forward – immediate, medium-term and long-term – to draft a career narrative and a resume that will position you very competitively in the marketplace. This will include research of target industry verticals, some companies and possible positions. Who you seek to become and what you seek to do will be aligned with who you are.
The outcomes will include
- the identification of disablers and enablers
- your career narrative, which will include your short, medium and long-term career objectives, and
- a resume that is aligned with your career objectives.
Key assessments used will include:
- Identification of typical challenges that may be holding you back from greater success.
- Identification of the ‘silent killers of money-making success’ that may be preventing you from becoming more successful, and making more money.
- Identification of the general ‘silent killers of success’ that may be preventing your greater success.
- A career narrative that will help you internalize the career path you want to pursue. It will also be very useful when potential employers ask you to describe your past, your strengths and weaknesses, your capabilities, why you want to target a particular industry sector or company, etc.
- Ideas on possible industries to target with the rationale.
- A resume that reflects your past accomplishments, that are aligned with who you are and what a target industry or prospective employer may seek.
Working with Ram was one of the best decisions I ever made. He really cared that I achieve my goals. He is a great coach. Working with him was a difference maker and was absolutely worth the investment.
I have a ton to write about Ram, he is been such a great coach and human being. He made me to connect with my life more deeply. He made me believe in myself. Just like my own brother and father did, he gave me great constructive feedback to improve myself that shows how much he cared for me.
Ram is somebody who really wants to help you succeed in life. He constantly pushed me to dig deeper, introspect and reflect, so that I could understand myself better. He kept nudging me in the right direction so that I could come up with the answers myself and own them. He is also someone who doesn’t want to settle for anything but the best.
Ram’s quick-witted mentality and empathy allowed him to get to know me much better than anyone else has ever done in such a short time span. He is a good listener, capable of learning and understanding anything and then articulating it in simple terms.
Ram is honest, compassionate, and 100% committed to your success (not only for the program, but in life)! He has consistently encouraged me to be more reflective and introspective. Ram will encourage you to explore different perspectives and continue to dig deeper.
Ram told me that this process would ultimately make me a better person – I truly believe that this was actually the case. I learnt a lot about myself in the process and I now am more confident about my professional goals.
Ram challenged me to always push myself harder and reflect deeper to develop authentic, vulnerable, and compelling career narrative that I believed and owned.
Ram’s advice changed my life.
I graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) but did not achieve the sustained success I thought I deserved.
Both my parents were high school teachers, and we were told to focus on education. Dad was the first graduate in his entire family EVER. He got two bachelor’s degrees and one master’s degree. Mom was the first woman who graduated from college in my father’s side of the family. She went on to get two bachelor’s degrees, and then got a master’s degree at the age of 76! Between my two sisters and our spouses, we have 14 master’s degrees.
But, I was the first in the family to travel overseas for higher education, and the only one in the family who had graduated from an elite institution – MIT. To my father and my family and friends, I could do no wrong. So, when I figured I needed some help, I had nobody to turn to. I was surrounded by people who thought I needed no help! So, I had to look outside the family for role models, coaches and mentors – and for answers for ‘what was holding me back’. That was NOT EASY.
I became a voracious reader, watched numerous videos, attended conferences and personal development classes,… and made some progress. I found many of the ‘gurus’ teaching the theory of success, but few helped me implement the theory. I was still left wanting.
One day, I was with Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, my friend and mentor, at his apartment in Manhattan. I was telling him that something was preventing my greater success. He suggested that I interview other immigrants like myself and see if there was a difference between the achievers and the non-achievers. He also encouraged me to introspect. So, I interviewed over a hundred achievers and non-achievers – from recent graduates, to Nobel Prize winners and CEOs of companies. And, I interviewed wealthy people and people who were actually making lots of money, researched the topic in great detail, read numerous books and articles, watched numerous videos, and gave it some deep thought. I found that there are stark differences between achievers and non-achievers. Here are some things I found:
1. The achievers were were highly self-aware – of their enablers and disablers
2. They lead intentional lives.
3. They had a supportive ‘tribe’ of achievers, and people who were their ‘truth-tellers’.
I have several assessments I shall have you take that will help you identify additional enablers and disablers.
You are already SMART & CAPABLE, but… your disablers may be holding you back.
I distilled my learnings into a simple framework that anybody can follow – the iCLIMB Success framework. It includes taking stock of your current self; identifying your strengths and weaknesses, your enablers and disablers; and more – details in the Master Class.
Will you be wise and sign up right away or wait until your 25thyear class reunion to regret your inaction?
Whatever your profession, developing an empowering mindset and behaviors with a group of like-minded people, your intentional and antifragile living, and my mentoring will enable you to become an achiever among your colleagues, friends, classmates, family, peers, competitors,…
The difference is the iSmartANDSuccessful Master Class – figuring out how to overcome your barriers, leveraging your strengths, and becoming better every year on your journey to achieving your personal greatness.
You’ll also become a very different person… somebody whom your co-workers, customers, partners, family and community members will value and respect more. Who would you rather be – the average Joe or plain Jane OR the Achiever-you?
You are Smart…
I’m not going to feed you any of the marketing spiel that the ‘gurus’ dish out.
- I will get you to take pre-assessments to give you an idea of where you currently stand – enablers, disablers, etc.
- I will help you identify the barriers within and around you and provide guidance, worksheets and tools on how to mitigate them, in two packed days.
- I will help you develop a plan on how you will use your learning in your life right away – taking the first steps right during the Master Class.
I have worked in the business for over 30 years and reached several highs and lows. I have two master’s degrees, one from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a business degree, an extensive network, knowledge and skills, extensive travel, experiences, and constant learning….and enjoy teaching and mentoring people.
I’ll tell you what you need (not want) to hear – fluff-free, straight talk.
Like many of you, I’ve had successes and failures in life. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on well-known personal development ‘gurus’ (whom you have probably paid as well!). I had one significant failure that almost bankrupted me. I spent years introspecting, talking to friends, personal development ‘gurus’, and accomplished people to figure out why I had failed. Then, it dawned on me. I realized that I WAS THE OBSTACLE – I was impeding my own success – because of my ‘silent killers of success’. I set out to identify, understand and ‘eliminate’ them. I then realized that millions of others have many of the same ‘silent killers of success’ – even very intelligent, smart, and successful people. I can help you identify some of your ‘silent killers of success’.
I have reinvented myself many times. MONEY magazine, in a two-page spread, called me “The Comeback Kid” because I’d successfully reinvented myself repeatedly.
After interviewing 120 professionals from 40 countries for a book I’m writing, I reflected on how I became ‘The Comeback Kid’, … and figured out how to ‘become unstoppable’ when faced with uncertainty and setbacks – becoming better whether I had individual successes or failures (antifragile). I can teach you how to BECOME UNSTOPPABLE! Look in the menu under PROGRAMS.
I also figured out how all of us can make more money – by developing a business mindset and business thinking – whether you are an employer, employee or investor – look in the menu under PROGRAMS. I can teach you how to MAKE MORE MONEY.
I then reflected, researched and figured out why many smart people do not achieve the level of success they expect – and how they can become more successful. I can help many of you smart people figure out WHY you are not as successful as you could be – look in the menu under PROGRAMS. I can teach you how to BECOME SMART AND SUCCESSFUL
WHY UNDERSTANDING FAILURE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO YOUR SUCCESS
Most people don’t have a clue about why they’re successful. They are one-hit wonders – they succeed once and never succeed again.
They never figure out their personal ‘success recipe’. So, when they try something new (expecting to succeed again)… many of them end up falling flat on their face! I know… I did too!
Successful people are different… they know how to be successful repeatedly and consistently. Ask Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, or Jeff Bezos… and they’ll tell you their success wasn’t accidental — it was purposeful. Not only that… they’ve been able to do it over, and over, and over again – leading to spectacular successes and achieving their personal greatness.
What’s the secret that makes such people repeatedly successful… while many of the rest of us just get by, or fail (repeatedly)?
If I told you it was their ability to learn from both their failures AND successes… would you understand what I meant?
This is a difficult concept to grasp because most people aren’t asking the right questions…
Are you taking credit for your successes and looking for someone else to blame for your failures?
If so, you’re asking the wrong questions… and only seeking easy answers that will make you feel good in the moment (but leave you wondering).
Many people believe they’ve learned from their failures…but continue to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
So not realizing it… when you fail, are you blaming… bad luck… the time of year… your mother-in-law… or one of a thousand other external factors?
If so, it’s not your fault…. These are subtle hidden issues… most of us aren’t aware of.
But Musk, Buffett, and Bezos on the other hand will ask questions that will allow them to understand WHY THEY’VE FAILED… without blaming or scapegoating external factors.
And so instead of asking, “ How can Amazon be successful in this business?” Jeff Bezos might ask, “What could we do… or what did we do that made this business fail?”
And he’d put together a list of answers… Much like a RECIPE, so he’ll know which actions to never undertake and always avoid.
Bezos might then ask a similar question to reveal what they have that’s allowing them to succeed.
These questions include ones about himself – personal enablers and disablers.
After that, every time Bezos made another business decision… he’d consult his ‘success and failure’ recipes… and made sure he did (or didn’t) do those things again.
And each new project he undertakes means he knows what NOT to do… and succeeds more often than most other people. Think about it….if you failed less often, you’ll be more successful more often… with each repeated success you’ll build momentum and BECOME…. well, A SUCCESSFUL PERSON.
The secret is knowing… HOW to frame the situation and WHAT questions to ask.
And that’s where Ram’s years of research and exploration can give you a leg up.
Imagine how much easier it will be to have an ‘insightful worksheet’ to help you compile your own personal recipes – your ‘Success Recipes’ and ‘Failure Recipes’.
And not only that… we’ve also simplified the process by including a ‘Why did I?’ worksheet that can help you discover why you did something. Have you wondered about that many many times?
I have to admit this business of failing and succeeding sounds simple enough… except if you want to truly be unstoppable… you’re going to need to have all your ducks lined up so you can make money repeatedly and consistently… for the rest of your life.
YOU HAVE THREE OPTIONS
The way we see it, you have three options.
You leave this page… or get up from your computer and ignore EVERYTHING I’ve just told you.
Do absolutely nothing… and keep on doing what you’re doing right now.
Go back to your OLD LIFE that’s had you feeling helpless and out of control. When you know you can change your career… your business… or your financial life… with just a few mouse clicks…
But for a moment, IMAGINE what your life will be like 5 or 10 years from now – AT YOUR NEXT REUNION. Do you want to be looking back to this time and ‘kicking yourself’ for not taking action.
Imagine, how awkward it’s going to be to hanging out with seeing your classmates, friends or colleagues who attended the Master Class… who are thriving, while you are wondering… “Where would I be right now if I’d taken the class?”
Are you still in the same job, struggling with the same business… trying to solve the same issues that never seem to go away… and wondering how to make more money?
But if you’d like to UP YOUR GAME… you have two other options.
Do it yourself.
Working with all the materials and insights you’ve learned from all the other personal development gurus, courses and books… you’re hoping that the ones you’ve picked go deep enough… even though they haven’t gotten you as far as you’d like.
Or you’re thinking, the knowledge Ram has acquired is out there… and if I work hard, I’ll discover it…. despite the fact that it took Ram years of searching… and more study and experimentation… over and over until he eventually figured it out.
Do you have the time, resources, and persistence to sustain such a quest? How much money will you miss making while you are on such a quest?
Good luck if you want to go that route.
Let us do the heavy lifting.
