As a consultant with accumulated valuable experience, wisdom and expertise over years, I think there’s no reason that my experience shouldn't continue to be valuable once I retire.  So I want to share some of my findings and research. In this article, I focussed on a mindset of successful people. Once, we understand the successful people mindset, and then we can correct the jobless or unsuccessful people mindset with the simple application of techniques. 

Recently I conducted an awareness 3 days’ workshop on “create your profession”. The programme and workshop were open to all. The program was intended helping the long-term jobless get back to work. Keeping in view that, not all job searchers have the same requirements.

The long-term unemployed come from all walks of life, representing all age groups, educational attainment and communities. But, as a group, they faced very similar challenges to finding a job. So my intention was to create a pathway find chances for job seekers give them a risk-free opportunity to evaluate and consider them ready for a job or to enable them to start their small business. This programme and workshop allowed participants to assess themselves during a trial work experience.

Start assessing jobless people’s mindset.

Let us see how my foundational course helped them?

What were pillars of this foundational Couse?

The 3 days workshop enabled me to get a vast sum of generalized information and then I made deep-dive observations and research as to how unsuccessful people fail to behave and what are the critical components.

On the other hand, I had an idea of how successful people act and operate?

I focussed on the mindset of unemployed. In simple, the biggest difference between these two is ‘thinking” and “process of the mindset”.

Before going into further, I just wanted to enlighten on three mind-set main components.

  1. Human being’s capacity, Knowledge capital and the capacity to learn.
  2. Emotional capital or openness to different jobs/business experiences and the capacity to change, if it is required.
  3. And community capital, the ability to form connections, to bring people together, and to influence colleagues, clients, suppliers, and regulatory agencies—who are unlike you in cultural heritage, professional background, or political outlook.

The professionally successful people in any career are strong in all these three dynamic dimensions. And another interesting factor is these three dimensions are developed in the early life of successful people. They talk and say things with a good attitude.


  1. The knowledge capital deals with intellectual strata of individual include cognitive complexity; the ability to piece together multiple scenarios with many moving parts, without becoming paralyzed by the number of options.

Diverse outlook - an active interest in the culture, history, geography, and political and economic systems of different parts.

  1. When it originates to Emotional capital, receptiveness to new ideas and experiences is critical.

The main attributes are:

  • Hunger for multiplicity; a penchant for exploring, experiencing, and trying new ways of doing things.
  • Thirst for exploit; an appreciation for and ability to thrive in unpredictable and complex job-situations.
  • Confidence; self-confidence, a sense of humour at times of failures, a willingness to take risks in new milieus, and high levels of vigour. The ability to be energized, rather than drained.
  1. For social or community capital, this provides benefits to build trusting relationships with people who are different by human nature.

The three most important attributes are:

  • Intercultural empathy - the ability to engage and connect emotionally with people of all cultures and from other parts of the world.
  • Interpersonal impact - the ability to bring together divergent views, develop consensus, and maintain credibility; and skill at building networks—not just with peers and senior leaders but with other, less obvious potential connections.
  • Negotiation - listening to what is said and what is not said, ease in conversations with people who are different from you, and a greater inclination to ask than to answer.


Coming back to my foundational course, It started Phase II comprised an evaluation on skillset valuations, career willingness workshops, and employee helping programs to influence their professional experience and develop effective job search strategies.

In simple, I had applied and made useful mindset components to unsuccessful people

Moreover, after months of unemployment, people without job experience dissimilar stresses. Their reserves have been spent to cover daily expenditures. Many feel disconnected from their careers, social networks and become depressed. It is not uncommon to lose confidence and experience strained relationships with family members

My endeavour was guiding them with personal empowerment concept to empower individuals, nurtures self-sufficiency and emphases on performance improvements with measurable outcomes.

My foundation course helped participants rediscover their true potential while providing confidence in identifying changes and thereby act independently.

“Create your profession” helped rediscover themselves and restore careers, self-respect. The foundation program helped applicants take action to realize their personal and professional potential. They developed new strategies for solving problems and create positive change in themselves.

Create your profession integrated a curriculum of self-assessment, change management, effective communication and successful job search strategies.
