Be Positive for joining Defense forces…the dream to live…
Already thought of joining Indiandefense services? Alas… You are on theright path. Indian defense is one of the best services one could opt for beingin India. It is a place where you could live for your country and think ofserving and protecting its rights. Being surrounded by neighbors who do nottend to have good relations with our country it’s the need of time. Every youthwant to contribute to its motherland but the real right is bestowed to thedefense personnel’s only. They are the real heroes and have the power to do so.If you want to be one, identify the need of service for motherland in yourheart and brain and then move ahead. SSB a wonderful 5 day stint and thegateway to be an officer with Indian defense requires a synchronization betweenyour body, heart and mind. Whatever you think with your mind should without anyconflict be agreed upon by your heart and should be reflected in your actionwith the help of your body.
This synchronization helps in removing the dualityof thought and action becomes result oriented. You never turn back to yourdecision for validation. Remember, an officer never has another chance to thinkwhether the decision he has taken is right or wrong. The protection ofmotherland never gives another chance to think what’s next? If these three function together you are theright one to move ahead. SSB clearly judges you as a person and recommends youonly if you have sufficient OLQ’s. The parameters are stringent and are notchanged for anyone. Popularity of defense is growing not because it pays youhigh but it’s the only place in India where no reservation applies. All areequally treated here and judged on tough parameters before clearing.
The mantrafor success is the positivism one carries in life. You are tested to look howpositive one can be in adverse situations. Positivism changes way of thinkingand can convert an adverse situation into a good one. This is a tested formulaand yes it has worked for years for the defense personnel’s in acquiring theright talent. The officers that get recommended not only have a differentapproach to look at situations but are daring enough to think differently thanthe so called “civilians”. You should have a positive thought process and itshould be developed since the inception. Be happy in every situation you face.The thought process of positivism is something that takes time to build in andit cannot be developed immediately when you get a SSB call. This woulddefinitely be a help in psychology section and would be reflected in whateveryou answer in PI. So get ready….. Built in positivism…. time is flowingoff….
