Most people aren't fully aware of their potential.

Do you know your major strengths and drives? Are you doing what you like to do, or are you trapped in some rut? Your education and your work would become far more fulfilling if you were to discover what you are really cut out for.

Which role are you in?

* Student:
Confused about which field to take up? Contemplating higher studies?

* Executive:
Are you meant to be elsewhere? Are you on the right track? Where can you improve? Should you really be in business instead?

* Businessman:
Are you still in it for the same reasons you got into it? Are you enjoying it? Or is there something wrong somewhere?

* Parent:
Are you worried that your children are missing out in the rat race? Are you dreaming on their behalf, and not keyed in to their dreams? Have you helped them to look into and understand their own talents?

* Full-Time Mother:
If you want some fulfilling and rewarding part-time activities consistent with your abilities and interests.

* Retired Person:
You have decades of experience, many more years to look forward to, and invaluable know-how and professional instincts. Your second innings may be just what you need.

What does your potential look like?

Quest Systems helps you to decide whether your career is on the right track, in relation to:

* Your aptitudes
* Your personality
* Your interests (for students)
* Your professional expectations
* Your social concerns

All you need to do is to take our simple, do-it-yourself analytical test.
It takes just 4 hours on the Internet (at your convenience); you can even
stretch the 4 hours over a week).

We will email the test results to you within 2 working days.

* The kind of person you are
* The inherent talents lurking within you
* Your deep-seated interests
* Your driving forces
* Your hidden traits
* Educational fields you are likely to succeed in
* Career options recommended for you
* The work environments that you will appreciate
* The social environments that you will flower in 
* Behaviour guidelines that can open the world up for you

Ideal timing for these tests

* If you are stuck where you are
* If you are approaching a crossroad in your education - school or college
* If you are planning your career
* If you are contemplating a change of job
* If you are contemplating starting a business
* If you are just plain confused
* If you just want to be sure you are on the right path
* Or, if you are doing fine, but it's your children who seem to be overwhelmed by impending career choices.

but by management and training consultants and education counsellors

A Future L&T Chief May Be Lurking In A Small Gujarat Village
By N. Muthuswamy, Author of 'Success Through Opposites'
(Book Available At: http://www.eloquentbooks.com/SuccessThroughOpposites.html)

Some years ago the Aga Khan Foundation commissioned us to do psychometric testing and career counseling for about 20 children who stayed in a remote North Gujarat village.

We administered our tests and we found that the children had good potential. We identified three outstanding youngsters: on the basis of their inherent strengths they had the potential to run a large industrial organisation, even of the size of L&T (no exaggeration).

When we asked one of them what he would like to choose as a career he said he would consider himself very fortunate if he could become a Bajaj dealer in the town which was near his village.

Time and again we have been stunned to see the tremendous untapped potential of Indian youngsters. Imagine the consequences if this potential is appropriately channeled in millions of these youngsters! Rather than being a burden on the country, they will be the biggest resource.

When you open the eyes of children to their own strengths and when you encourage them to grow through those strengths, they will take off on their own and cross landmarks beyond even your expectations.

However, India's educational system, and parents too, tend to make children more conscious of their weaknesses rather than their strengths. The child is asked to improve on the weaker areas (and be average in everything), rather than to further strengthen the strong area (and be exceptional in that area).

In such a system, children underestimate their own potential and remain largely ignorant about the heights that they can easily aspire to and reach if they only aim in a suitable direction.

This yawning gap between the tremendous promise in children and the desolate reality that they flounder in has motivated us to dream that every municipal school in India should administer this three-hour test to every child. Believe it or not, three hours can help shape a life for the better. Only three hours.

What Happened To The Dyslexia?
By N. Muthuswamy, Author of 'Success Through Opposites'
(Book Available At: http://www.eloquentbooks.com/SuccessThroughOpposites.html)

One child went through our career counselling during the 10th standard. Based on his strengths we suggested to the parents that the child should take up drums (as a career) and immediately stop his education! The mother said that the child had never even touched the drums till then.

The parents said that they were both doctorates and all the child's cousins were also doctorates or studying for a doctorate degree. After a while, the mother opened out and said that the child was dyslexic and had failed in the 10th standard three times. We suggested that it is far better to let the child experience success rather than confront failure repeatedly. They then took the strong decision to train the child to play the drums. Within three months, four clubs in Mumbai were after the boy to perform at their clubs. Within one year he was earning Rs. 20,000 per month! Soon thereafter he moved to Hollywood for a one-year course in music. He even flew back to India to receive a National award!

And what about the dyslexia? Did it disappear? On the wrong track, the condition seemed to matter. On the right track, it is no longer relevant. This child had a teacher, specially trained in the UK, to teach dyslexic children. She saw the child after a gap of three months when he was into drums. She was surprised at the positive personality changes in the boy, changes which only the taste of success can trigger.

What Fascinates The Father May Bore The Son
By N. Muthuswamy, Author of 'Success Through Opposites'
(Book Available At: http://www.eloquentbooks.com/SuccessThroughOpposites.html)

A chartered accountant with a flourishing practice in Vadodara put his son through our career guidance program.

Based on his strengths we recommended electronics engineering for him. The parents said they expected their only son to take over the father?s practice.

The boy had exceptional capabilities in electronics engineering, and not so in chartered accountancy. He would be underutilising his capability, and getting bored, in practice as a CA.

We left the decision to the family.

The family decided to put the son in the science stream in 11th and 12th and then in electronics engineering. He then went to the USA, did a masters in electronics and was picked up by IBM, the computer giant. He is doing remarkably well at IBM and is being promoted every year!

The parents concede that they would never have dreamt of the electronics engineering option on their own.

Success Can Be More Intoxicating Than Drugs
By N. Muthuswamy, Author of 'Success Through Opposites'
(Book Available At: http://www.eloquentbooks.com/SuccessThroughOpposites.html)

A 23-year-old boy came to us with his mother for career guidance in Mumbai. He had already completed some courses in computer software. Based on his unique strengths we recommended a specific niche in the computer field.

Three months later, the boy wrote to us and thanked us profusely because he had got a job in the filed we recommended, at a salary of Rs. 30,000 per month.

At the end of the letter, he mentioned that he had been a drug addict for some years when he met us and that he has now quit the habit.

People often asked me: How can career guidance help a person to give up on a drug addiction. I feel that all of us need some form of addiction or the other to continue to be interested in life. May be, in the case of this boy, we pointed him towards an alternative and more rewarding addiction.

Success can be intoxicating!

The Boy Can Make His Grandfather Proud
By N. Muthuswamy, Author of 'Success Through Opposites'
(Book Available At: http://www.eloquentbooks.com/SuccessThroughOpposites.html)

Our strength matching system - the system that discovers the strengths in a child and then matches them with a corresponding career - can often lead to startling coincidences.

We were recently counselling a 9th Standard boy in Vadodara in the presence of his parents.

The boy's strengths pointed very strongly towards a career in sports, more specifically in cricket. The psychometric tests indicated a phenomenal aptitude and strength for cricket.

For Indian children we do not normally advise a single-minded focus on sports as a full-time career considering the non-professional hurdles that are often encountered along the way. We usually prefer to recommend that the strength in sports be first worked upon as a hobby. In this case, however, the test results were overwhelmingly pointing towards cricket; we were convinced that he will certainly succeed in cricket. We therefore made this suggestion - of cricket as a career - very strongly.

It was only after seeing our strong conviction that the parents revealed the identity of the child. He happened to be the grandson of one of India's greatest and most respected cricketers, a legend even on the international stage.

How's That?
