IntroductionEach one of us used to face problems in our lives and it is impossible to skip challenges of our path. There are two types of people in this world-first is those types of people who used to see problems during a challenging phase of life and second are those types of people who used to see opportunities during a challenging phase of life. When we see problems then problems used to become big and our road to success becomes very difficult but when we see opportunities then we get solutions to our problem very easily. Today we will talk about the great emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte.

IntroductionThe word "influence" is generally attributed to famous personalities but today we will understand how each one of us influences people around us. You can say a supervisor influences workers working under him, mother or father influences her children, social worker influences community, etc. Every day when we go out then we have a chance to influence others. we can leave a positive impact on others' lives or take other's negative impressions on us. According to Robin Sharma who is also one of the most famous authors, exceptionally influential people have one thing in common.

Why it’s never too late to change your life

Introduction Many people used to think that it's already too late to start anything new. We used to see so many people around us who had already given up their hopes. There are people who are 19 years old and think that they are failures, 25 years old who have bowed down to the hardships, 35 years old who have started giving up their hopes and 50 years old who have long forgotten the meaning of their dreams. But if we see and analyze then we will find that success does not have any deadline. According to Forbes, 35 years of age is the best age to start any company.

Today we will see 3 famous personalities who have started their companies very late and became successful. 10 point formula for success: Presi…

This does not happen just by chance but they develop specific habits that made them successful. Today we will see how Lyndon B.

Hernan Cortes: Burn your own Boats

INTRODUCTION There was a treasure trove in the Aztec Empire but even the biggest armies were not able to win that treasure from the Aztec army. In 1519, a brave person started his journey from Cuba to the Aztec Empire. He was accompanied by 11 ships with mere 450 soldiers, 150 sailors, and 20 horses. He knew that his army can never win a war against the Aztec army and hence he started telling them about their bright future. He observed that the Aztec army can never be defeated even with 1500 soldiers but if his soldiers have a very high spirit then there are some chances of victory. He tried his best to motivate his army but still, there were few people who might run away. Those few people were still in a dilemma. But when their crew reached the shore of their enemy, Hernán Cortés does not attack the enemy but he spent a whole day to further boost the morale of his army.
