444. Sharing Wisdom and Success from Two Cultures
Ron immigrated from India to Australia as a 13-year-old. He quickly identified with the local Western culture more than with his own. He was fascinated by money, and his first job was at a local bank. He realized he was more interested in people than selling financial services. This launched him on a journey of self-discovery.
Ron Malhotra is the founder of ‘The Successful Male,’ a global movement specializing in the holistic development of men and focusing on areas traditionally neglected by the educational system and the workplace. These include developing confidence and character, identifying one’s purpose, success and wealth principles, leadership and influence, and even dating, styling and grooming. Ron is a thought leader, entrepreneur, speaker and certified success coach. He’s an award-winning wealth planner, leadership trainer, radio host and a #1 best-selling author.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Ron’s talent for helping people find their life purpose springs from his own challenges as a thirteen-year-old immigrant to Australia from India. His parents’ Indian culture, which highly values academic achievement, never appealed to him. “It was too structured, too rigid. Everyone was just complying and going through the motions. I had a rebellious streak in me, so I struggled with that system and refused to embrace it. I didn’t want to be just another nerd who went to school, did years of education, then went into the corporate world and worked 30 years for a boss.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Coming from a country with a lot of poverty, Ron took to the more affluent lifestyle of Australia. He was fascinated by money and the reasons behind the gap between the haves and have-nots. He took a job at a bank, because the money was there, and soon discovered he wasn’t good at counting cash, but he did have the gift of gab and an interest in people. After a short time as a financial planner, he realized he was just selling products, not offering wise counsel. He became disillusioned. This launched him on a journey of self-discovery. “I started to define myself based on my strengths, values and vision. I discovered my passions and purpose. Once I became clear on exactly who I was, I started to make really smart decisions about my life and career.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“Ultimately all human beings just want to feel valued. If we don’t know how to get to a point where we feel that we matter, we are at risk of making all the wrong decisions. We go for all the things we think are going to make us matter. Soon enough, I realized living from the outside-in instead of from the inside-out was never going to make me feel happy.”
