- What percentage of your life do you control?
I believe that I have a large amount of control in my life, at least over 80%. I never look at negative situations in my life and blame outward circumstances since I know it was my own decisions only that have driven me there and, ultimately, the decisions that can get me out. I understand that this can be a little difficult thing to do, but it definitely takes a lot of strength to find the good in certain situations.
- How would you define a happy and successful day in your life?
In fact, none of us humans have a successful day every day, but the ups and downs in our lives to keep learning how to act, think, act and behave right are daily challenges for all of us. For me, a happy and successful day in my life is the day in which I complete all the activities that I wanted to do. It does not necessarily have to be a long list of things. When I do what I set out to do for the day and do it right, I feel like the day is a success.
- What leadership quality do you find is the most useful?
A leader with high ethical standards demonstrates their commitment to fairness by inspiring confidence that both they and their employees will play by the rules of the game. Similarly, when leaders communicate their expectations clearly, they avoid overwhelming people and ensure everyone is on the same page. In a safe environment, employees can unwind by harnessing the brain’s increased capacity for social engagement, innovation, creativity, and ambition. No leader can do everything himself. Therefore, it is very important to spread power throughout the organization and rely on the decision-making of those closest to them.
- What is the biggest challenge you have faced till now?
And how you have overcome it? One of the biggest challenges I have faced and continue to face is meeting the expectations I set for myself. I aim high and sometimes when things aren’t going the way I want them to, it’s hard for me to move forward. But I never gave up, I always found a way to achieve the desired result. After reaching one, I install another, so it’s an endless struggle.
- What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I love solitude, the time I do my favorite things like reading, listening to music, etc. that gives me the opportunity to relax, but it’s not for long….. I love to spend time with my friends & family members, make noise, be together, or just have “family time.”
