The principles and values we stand by are our core DNA,
We also have a razor sharp focus on
the competencies we want to develop and
the areas we want to focus and hence
SHN’s success is inevitable!
Confidence, belief and conviction
Dignity of work
Be solution oriented
Everyone starts to inculcate logical thinking into their lives. At a societal level everyone gets carried away with emotions and applies logic rarely. Though we are emotional beings at the core, it pays to apply logical thinking in our daily lives. Logical thinking makes you make better decisions, set your priorities right and directly impacts your success, happiness and satisfaction in life.
Being rational and overcoming irrational fearBy being rational and overcoming irrational fears we are actually improving the clarity in our thought process. Most of the times we don’t think clearly. Most of the situations in life can be handled really well if we think clearly.
Self-awarenessSelf awareness is the key for an individual change and a societal change. This is a principle we apply to every individual at SHN as well to the organisation as a whole. Self-awareness is the central principle of SHN
Being responsible towards yourself, family, friends, society and environmentResponsibility is about owning things and acting in a constructive way. There are lot of individuals who don’t take responsibility of their life and expect someone else usually parents/life partner to take it. No one other than yourself is responsible for anything that happens in your life. The day someone realises this, their attitude and outlook towards life will completely change. Taking responsibility of maintaining healthy relationship with friends , family, society and environment is essential to a happy and satisfactory life. Usually whenever there is a problem in relationship with anyone we will be the 1st to point out others mistakes. Being responsible helps you solve the problems in the relationships rather than satisfying our egos.
Knowing that you don’t know everything and being open to listenAssuming that you know everything only leads to arrogance. one needs to understand that the universe is vast and humans need to keep seeking knowledge. We also need to understand that science and technology is a medium to understand the universe but its not the only medium. A dog is able to sense things, which a human cannot. we need to develop senses than the existing ones and it starts by accepting that there is more to learn and start seeking it.
Free thinkingA thought is not good or bad. Actions can be good or bad. Free thinking is essential to understand oneself, to seek knowledge and to achieve excellence. Labeling thoughts as bad/immoral only does harm!
Lets fill the trust deficitPost independence, Indians were in survival state with limited resources which brought in qualities such as greed, distrust. Distrust is a major challenge in current Indian society, which is hindering its development. A StrongHuman is a trustworthy person. SHN will stand for trust! SHN will fill the trust deficit. It will create trustworthy individuals and business partners.
Lets focus on valueAs a society we need to understand that money is a representation of value. we need to understand that one needs to chase value instead and money will follow. Understanding what is valuable to you is the key! you pay 150 rs to buy a pack of cigarettes. so that’s the value you are paying for it. is that pack of cigarettes really valuable to you or are you giving in to your addiction is something you need to understand. Once you understand what is actually valuable to you, the world around you changes! we have 3 mantras for anyone who wants to join SHN
lets all share value which each other have. When we share the value we have, we create value for each other. When we all start creating value for each other we will reach a point where we will define value for the society!
Don’t be greedy!The concept of greed is directly related with the evolution of the society. greed is a survival instinct which helps us in situations where resources are limited. We are stepping into a situation where there are enough resources for everyone. Indian society is in a transition phase from “ i win you lose” to “I win you win”. SHN visualises a society where everybody can win by making others also win.
Ownership: Ownership of life. Ownership of workYou are the owner of your destiny! You deal with your present and past. you create your future! There are lot of people out there who think that whatever has happened in their life is because of things that happened to them. But remember, Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. if you lost everything you owned in tsunami then you have 2 options:
1. If you keep cribbing cursing god for doing it to you, you will move nowhere.
2. If you decided to start over your life again, you will be back to your normal life in sometime. If your parents didn’t treat you the way society expects them to, then you have 2
1. Keep cribbing about it, hate your parents and make your life hell
2. Take ownership of your life, work hard and succeed. understand the circumstances which made them behave like that and try to help them out! People who don’t take ownership of their life and their work create coping mechanisms to make themselves believe why something didn’t happen in their life and live that lie and at the end lead a very depressed and dissatisfied life!
Confidence, belief and convictionIf you believe you can do something, you will do it and if you don’t believe, you won’t even try! A generation of Indians have been told that things can’t change. we believe that we can change things and that’s what is driving us. many people believe that they are born to lead a mediocre life and end up living one. The 1st step to lead a great life is to believe you can lead one!
Sincerity: sincerity towards your own lifeyou need to be sincere towards leading a life which you will be proud of! You know that to lead a healthy life you need to lose weight and for that you need to cutdown on sugar, alcohol and start having an active life. Being sincere will make you get into that direction sooner or later. If you are not sincere it will again lead to dissatisfaction. depression.
Dignity of workwork is dignity. not working and wanting free meals is not acceptable. If someone is working to make a living, he needs to be treated with dignity irrespective of what kind of work he/she does. The kind of work one does depends upon various factors and no one has the right to judge or look down upon any kind of work! when you look down on someone’s work remember that it is your character that is reflecting! India has a major problem of people judging each other by their work! This needs to end! There is dignity in working as a waiter in mcdonald’s to make the ends meet. there is no dignity in living on your parents wages when you are capable enough to earn and contribute! people who are already doing odd jobs to support their family may have a feeling that they are doing a sacrifice. people need to come out of this mindset and understand work is a very normal part of a humans life and we can learn and earn something from every work. All the youth in India spend most of their college time doing nothing! Many people are forced to work when they travel abroad for their masters and it teaches them a lot of things! What if every youngster starts doing something productive, won’t India’s future look better?
Be solution oriented. We don’t complain. We find solutionA lot of people in our society complain. They only complain. Complaining is a mechanism to let out the frustration. It only lets your frustration down but doesn’t fix anything. Finding a solution is the only way to fix things. It needs you to understand things finely, apply thought process. Everyone needs to strive to find a solution for problems in their life. SHN is our solution for the society!
Honesty: being honest to yourself is the best way to lead quality lifeFor being honest one need to have a clear thought process for their life. It requires self-awareness i.e, observing your own emotions, thoughts and actions. Being honest requires you to understand your value system and be open to question it! If your value system says that you kill your sister if she marries out of your caste or religion, you need to question your value system. For that you need to have a clear thought process. If you are not honest with your life, you are fooling yourself. sadly that’s the truth of majority of the world.
Accountability: be accountable for whatever you do!we do a lot of things we are proud of! we do a lot more of things which we are not proud of! Whenever things go well, we tend to take credit and whenever things don’t go as expected, we tried to hold someone/something else accountable for it which makes us hypocrites. Being accountable makes us to take the positive and negative things equally. This improves our attitude towards life by making us more humble and bringing us closer to reality!
LeadershipWe believe leadership is leading the best way of life. A StrongHuman is a leader. When we lead the best way of life, we can lead others! We know that to be prepared for the future, being a leader is the way! Time to stop creating followers and start creating leaders! Do you think you are a leader? Tell us more and we’ll get in touch with you. Take a detailed note on their leadership experiences. Minimum 1000 words.
Execution: we do exactly what we think!We understand that to make a project as mammoth as SHN reality, execution is the key! We are developing necessary processes to keep the system running smoothly. To ensure perfect execution, the only way is to make sure your foot soldiers are strong. As everyone in the organization is striving to be a StrongHuman, the last mile delivery system of SHN is very robust and that’s how SHN will maintain execution excellence!y!
People: Peoples lives are the only realitywe believe at the end what matters are people’s lives. The systems, processes, concepts such as money, country, religion, institution are nothing if there are no people. We give utmost importance to this aspect and SHN’s whole thinking process revolves only around people. we only respect people! When people change, everything changes!
Culture: we are a cultural phenomenon!When people change, culture changes.
we might have a culture to waste food, SHN will change it!
we might have a culture to judge people unnecessarily, SHN will change it!
we might have a culture where negativity sells. SHN will prove positivity sells better!
We might have a culture where being corrupt is okay. SHN will make everyone understand that being corrupt is being stupid in future!
we might have a culture where we are forced to take orders. SHN will make you question things and question yourself!
At SHN we know that India will be a very different place 5 years from now!
