Aim High to Achieve Success in SSB

Aim High to Achieve Success in SSB
Suddenly I see a growing madness for defence. Youth are now crazy to approach for that uniform. Is this craziness love for the motherland or today’s youth is attracted towards the shine of the profile, respect and the facilities you start earning when you are inducted as an officer. I am sure if you want to serve the defence forces you need purity at the heart. I am quite sure that the assessors at SSB looks for all the quality and make sure that no wrong element gets into our forces. They are specially trained for all this. Life glows when the uniform comes in and the stars shine on the shoulder. Not everyone is lucky enough to achieve all this in life. And believe me this is something you earn and not get without hard work. Life shines only when you have purity of thought and want something sincerely. You are ready to devote everything you love and have just one target, to clear the SSB and be an officer of Indian defence forces.

Important Interview Questions of SSB

Important Interview Questions of SSB Interview
Interview is the most essential part for SSB. Though it seems to be tough but it is the easiest out of the three. Now you all would be guessing why I feel so. It’s because this is the only round where you can take the command in your hand and drive the whole process. The fact should be known that interviewer gives you a chance first to express the interest and describe yourself. Such an initiative is taken so that you become comfortable to the environment and then he can start the real testing process. This is the only chance where you can take the hold in your hand and deliver him your interest areas. Human psychology has the tendency that it remembers only the latest things that are told to him hence such things would last long and he would be bound to test you in those parameters.

Hard Work Is the Key to Success in SSB Interview
A dream does not become reality through magic, it takes sweat, determination and hard work ~~ Colin Powell
In this modern world people have started believing that hard work has been substituted by the smart work. It might be correct that sometimes smart work pays but my dear aspirants the place where you are trying to go is not the place where smart work works, there you have to work hard every second to serve and you should have the passion for your motherland. Not you would like to argue with me that what’s bad in doing smart work if done with integrity and passion. See f your smart work has the elements of passion and integrity the definition becomes somewhat similar to hard work. Once you love whatever you are doing, once you start associating yourself with it, once you feel this is your very own work, you tend to give quality with it.

Self-Confidence: The ‘Gist’ of an Officer Like Personality in SSB Screening

No Sir, I will not abandon my tank. 
My gun is still working and I will get these bastards.
What is the characteristic of 2nd lieutenant Arun Khetarpal, PVC, 1971 that made him to say the above lines during a spine chilling war? It was nothing but, self-confidence that gave rise to love for nation.
As you all know there are 15 OLQ’s (Officer like qualities) assessed by officers in the candidates. If you will give a serious thought to those OLQs, you will find that these are not independent of each other. Many of them are inter-connected.  This article is about an OLQ around which many OLQs revolve. And the OLQ which is doing the work of ‘SUN’ in a solar system here is ‘SELF-CONFIDENCE’.

Life at sea is full of challenges and of immense satisfaction to the sea warriors. Whether it’s a ship, a submarine, an airplane or anything life is not less than an adventure here.
