The success story of the Google CEO is not hidden to the world, knowstartup.com said. Hailing from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, Pichai was born and raised in a two-bedroom house. The successful CEO was a shy kid, as well as, a bright student which got him a seat in the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.
The world is filled with innovative ideas and Pichai shares the same view. He says, at any given time in life, what needs to be focused is that we boast innovative thinking for a better future. He explains it should be the most natural way of thinking for young entrepreneurs: keep on thinking about what should be the next best action.
In a world where there is a new technology or an innovation beaming from a corner updating and reinventing yourself is much more required in this world of cut-throat competition. To deliver an out of the box solution, Pichai asks entrepreneurs to think big about big problems and think of a more ambitious way to tackle these problems.
Being ambitious keeps motivation levels high and such kind of attitude can help in attaining big successes.Leaders, as a rule, should not be focusing on their own growth or success but also pay attention to their employee’s success. Pichai explains: “As a leader, a lot of your job is to make those people successful. It’s less about trying to be successful (yourself), and more about making sure you have good people and your work is to remove that barrier, remove roadblocks for them so that they can be successful in what they do. So that’s how I’ve always thought about it.”
Many entrepreneurs are ambitious but still fail at achieving what they really desire. Pichai explains that just dreaming and hardly taking any efforts will not be of any help to anybody unless you put in sincere efforts to earn it.
“When something excites you but there are hard decisions to make, then take the leap if you really think that you are right. Taking risks is worth and even if you fail, never stop trying. Numerous things that amaze the world have been made after umpteen attempts,” Pichai adds.
Being in a corporate or starting out on a new business venture, it's just human to get intimidated and get insecurities. But there is no problem in getting worried or ashamed of the insecurities that you get. Pichai says that feeling insecure implies that you are simply working with talented people and it is now your opportunity to learn from them and grow. Use your creativity to try doing new things while learning them and become a master with constant practice.
