The Famous Motivational Success Story of Ray Kroc McDonalds


Let us noticed the success story of McDonald.


During the early 1950's a restaurant in California was making a lot of money offering hamburgers, cheeseburgers, french fries, soft drinks, and milkshakes at very low prices. Intrigued, a traveling salesman peddling food mixers met with the owners and offered to open several branches of the successful dining place. Thus, already in his 50's and besieged by health problems, salesman Ray Kroc started the first McDonald's eatery for brothers-cum-restaurateurs Dick and Mac McDonald.

Convinced the chain would be more successful if it were independent, he bought out the brothers for a mere $2.7M in 1961. Just three years later, the famous mascot Ronald McDonald made his debut, the 500th McDonald's restaurant had been opened, and more than 1 billion hamburgers had been sold?

What was one major key to Kroc's unbelievable success? For one thing, Kroc never changed the fundamental format devised by the brother-low prices, simple menu had prompt service. But he added cleanliness- the parking lot, the kitchen floor, the uniforms, everything had to be spotless. For him, the customer's first impressions of a dining place-which is booth seen and smelled determines whether he or she will go back.

His mascot also helped a lot. Within the first six years of airing his initial TV ad, over 90% of American children were more familiar with Ronald McDonald than with the name of the president of the United States. By the time of his death in 1984 as company chairman, McDonald's Corporation was-and-still is- the largetst restaurant company in the world, with restaurants in 14 countries.

However, like many great entrepreneurs, Kroc didn't invent convenience dining. Instead, he refined the idea in the best way possible. He had an amazing ability to expand a concept with all its complexities and implement it in the best and most profitable-way possible.

Wise words from Ray Kroc: "I was 52 years old, I had diabetes and incipient arthritis. I had lost my gall bladder and most of my thyroid gland in  earlier campaigns, but I was convinced that the best was ahead of me . . . The definition of salesmanship is the gentle art of letting the customer have it your way."



So now, we already know how the McDonald become successful, You too!

The Never-before-told Success Story of Konosuke Matsushita


Here's the  most inspiring success stories of Konosuke Matsushita.


Have you heard of Konosuke Matsushita? Born in 1894 in a village near Osaka, Japan. Matsushita lacked formal education, wealth, connections and even a special talent. His father had lost their farm property due to poor investments and the family of eight was forced to move to a small house in the city. To help support the family, Konosuke become a store apprentice.

The early hardships had produced a lifelong thirst for learning. His father taught : "the skills you are learning will ensure your future. Succeed as an entrepreneur, and you can hire people who have education.

When Konosuke foresaw that electricity would be the wave of the future, he applied at a power company, leaving his apprenticeship at 15. Seven years later and already a highly-paid inspector by that time, he remembered his father's advice and left his job to set up his own company.

Undaunted by meager resources ( he started out with only 100 yen), poor sales, and the departure of two co-workers (leaving only his wife and brother-in-law to help out), the young man pursued. Then, on the brink of bankruptcy, the company was saved by an unexpected order for a thousand insulator plates for electric fans.

With money to invest, he launched a new manufacturing company on the first floor of his home. Konosuke developed innovative items like a battery-powered bicycle lamp, resulting in a flood of orders. While thinking of a brand name for an invention, Konosuke noticed in the dictionary that the word "national", which means "of or relating to the people of a nation", was perfect for product that he believed every household in the country needed. In 1927, the National brand was born.

Konosuke also placed high priority on the interests of his employees with his guiding principles, which included service to the public, fairness, honesty, teamwork for the common cause, continuous improvement, humility, accord with natural laws, and gratitude for blessings. This shy idealist also advanced his then-radical philosophy: the mission of a manufacturer is to relieve poverty and create wealth, not only for shareholders, but for society.

Matsushita's company became one of the world's largest electric goods manufacturer, sold under the Panasonic, Technics, and JVC brands. After he retired in 1973, Matsushita wrote 44 books on his social and commercial philosophies, one of which sold over four million copies.

When he died in 1989 at the age of 94, he left personal assets worth $3 billion and a company with $42 billion in revenues.

FINAL ADVICE :  RISE

When you fall, rise up. If you encounter a stumbling block, turn it into a stepping stone. There will always be a fulfillment of dreams to those who persevere and never quit. And when you feel like quitting, never, never, NEVER give Up!

These story is the best example of the saying "HARD WORK IS BETTER THAN TALENT" and i really inspired of these story.

A Must Read Inspiring Success Story of Willies Carrier


Let us be more inspired of this inspiring success story of Willis Carrier


Born in a farm in New York, Willis Carrier had to work his way through high school, taught classes to earn money, and persevered to gain a scholarship to Cornell University. Despite hardship, he loved to tinker and experiment with things and figure out how they worked, eventually landing in the engineering department of a heating company.

A few years later-and despite his pioneering work which enabled the company to save enough money a year-the company decided to phase out its engineering department. Disillusioned, Carrier and six young but brilliant engineers eventually left and formed their own firm: the Carrier Corporation.

With over 80 patent, Carrier became the leading engineer of his day on the conditioning of air. Backed up by his loyal and expert team, he led the way in developing humidifiers and coolers for machines. Costumers then asked him to invent a machine that would also cool office-and people. With his latest invention, the airconditioner, Carrier was subsequently known as the Father of Air Conditioning.

Willis Carrier died in 1950's, but today his corporation is the world's leading maker of air conditioning, heating and ventilation systems. To know the impact of air conditioning on humanity, just consider what the world would be without it: productivity rates would drop 40% worldwide; the fishing industry would collapse; deep mining would be impossible; and the computer industry crash.

The words from Willis Carrier: "We will not discharge the people we have trained. We will all work for nothing if we have to."


 I noticed how important and how useful the work of  Willis Carrier in our generation now, and we also can  have a useful and important worked for our next generation.

He's the man behind SONY, one of the world's first and most successful global corporations. In the United States alone, Sony was recently rated as the No. 1 brand name ahead of true blue American brands.

Morita's family had a brewery business i Nagoya, Japan, but in true entrepreneurial spirit, the young Akio ventured to the capital of Tokyo shortly after the end of World War II to set up along with his partner  Masaru Ibuka a company called Tokyo Telecommunications engineering. their goal was to create products with brand name identification and responsibility - in short, a name that would instantly communicate high product quality.


From its modest beginning in a dilapidated wooden shack in the outskirts of Tokyo, the company eventually grew to fulfill its goal on a worldwide scale.Combining the Latin word sonus or sound with the America pop slang SONNY, they renamed the company SONY, a name recognizable everywhere which suggested a company of young people with abundant energy.

While Morita ans Ibuka did not not invent items such as radio, they always innovated on the product and at the same time made it responsive to people's wants and needs. Their products have included the pocket radio, the 8-inch television, and the videotape recorder.

When Moria noticed that people were always listening to music (his children would play music fro morning to night) in their cars and carrying large stereos during weekend outings, he invented a product that sound like a high-equally car stereo but was also portable enough to allow the listener to do something else. Thus was born the Walkman, a worldwide hit that is actually featured already in several  dictionaries.

Wise words from Akio Morita: "Everything in this world is a gift from the Creator, and that we should be grateful for i and never waste anything. . . All things are provided as a sacred trust and actually are loaned to us make the best use of it. To waste something is considered a kind of sin."

Preachers Become A Meddler

I can still remember how this inspirational short story has really inspired me about Commands of God



A priest was once delivering a homily with much gusto and enthusiasm. “Thou salt not kill!” he boomed as his right hand made a sweeping cut through the air.
                
A fired-up parishioner in the front row exclaimed in agreement, “Amen, Father, amen.’’
                
“Thou shall not steal!’’ the priest fulminated. “Amen!’’ Again the parishioner on the front row practically shouted.
             
   With the tension rising to electric pitch, the preacher paused and declared with his full voice,’’ Thou shall not 
commit adultery.’’
               
“Now, now,’’ said the parishioner.  ‘’You have stopped preaching. You are now meddling with my life.’’
             
   Reflection: It’s easy enough to accept the teachings of Christ as long as they don’t apply to us. But once were directly hit (‘’tinamaan’’), we say: “Now, you’re no longer preaching but meddling with my life,’’
