Everyone gets inspired by someone, same thing happened with me. I am inspired by myself. Whenever I remember that incident, it tells me, "Sara, come out from your comfort zone".
This was the incident when I was working in one placement firm. I was workaholic but I didn't get result as I expected even I didn't complete my target. My boss, TL and KAM, all are nice, they didn't say single word to me that why I didn't achieve my target. They always encouraged me that in next month definitely you will achieve your target.
But same thing happened, in next month again I didn't achieve my target, then my boss noticed me in CCTV camera that I mainly gave my time on Naukri portal only. I searched resumes from portal only.
Then my boss called me and said to me," Sara, I am seeing that you are not achieving your target, even you are workaholic but I don't know why, and even your KAM told me that nobody gave you any references. I think that you are living in comfort zone here. If it is like that then you have to leave this job or I will change your department from AUTO to BFSI." I was shocked and blanked at that time.
Then my boss asked to my KAM, "Is she doing mapping?" She said, "No". Then my boss said to KAM, "We gave her 1 month and in that 1 month, you allow her to use portal only for 10 minutes per day and also she will give minimum 5 quality CVs per day to you and also give again mapping and reference training to her". My KAM said,"OK".
Then she gave mapping and reference training again to me as I was living in my comfort zone i.e., totally depended on portal, so it was tough for me. Mostly I got angry with my KAM and even didn't talk to her properly because before that she was my best friend and you can say she was like my big sister.
Then one day, she gave me many examples again that how to take references and mapping and after that she became rude and said, "You have to do it, sharped your memory, pen down the name of person, their designation, their contact number and name of company in which currently he/she is working.
After that I decided, either do or die. Then slowly slowly I started to call the person and take references from them. I made my call for long duration. I started to map the entire company from only one person.
Then after that month, my boss, my KAM and my TL were very happy because I didn't only achieve my target but I achieved 6 times of my target and also boss gave the Mega Project of Maruti Suzuki to me. And after that I didn't need any portal and I had mastered in Mapping and references and my brain was like that if anybody said the name of person and company name, I gave entire information of that person like his/her designation, he/she want to change the job or not, team handling, etc. because now I came out from my comfort zone.
So, I just want to say that if you really want to achieve something then COME OUT FROM YOUR COMFORT ZONE.
