Leaders should believe that hard work is the foundation of success because it can lead to improved results, personal growth, increased confidence, a sense of accomplishment, career advancement, and more tremendous success. Hard work can help people develop character, motivate themselves, overcome hardships, and achieve their goals. It can also help individuals develop new skills and abilities, leading to personal growth and development. By putting in extra effort and time, one can improve the quality and quantity of their work, leading to better results and outcomes. Hard work can also provide a sense of accomplishment and lead to tremendous success. Therefore, leaders should encourage their team members to work hard and strive for excellence.

MunirKhalifa, the Owner & CEO of MixJet Flight Support, is one such leader, hence he is one of the Top 20 European CEOs in the Aviation Industry.He is a man who loves creativity, design, and determination and believes that hard work is the foundation of success. 

He emphasizes the importance of teamwork in achieving success, stating that leadership lies in taking responsibility, guiding, motivating, improving, appreciating, and celebrating the team for their achievements. He also acknowledges that failure is not the end but an opportunity to rise and adapt. Munir firmly believes in proper planning, organization, honesty, and credibility for success in work and life.

Culminating into A Dynamic Leader

Munir credits creative ideas to stem from accumulated experience, knowledge, thinking outside the box, and necessity – the mother of invention. Sometimes, failure and setbacks can drive and lead to the creation of astonishingly creative ideas that others might not conceive. “It’s crucial to draw on and analyze ideas from your team, enhancing and transforming them into creative solutions. I strongly encourage my team to innovate and bring new ideas that elevate our company’s work,” he says. “I ensure to give credit where it’s due, highlighting individual contributions, which fosters gratitude and respect within the team.”

He highlights a crucial topic frequently asked by the youth: how an employee can transition from a job to establishing their own business. Munir explains that there are two types of employees: one who is satisfied with their job, seeks a steady income and security for their family, and needs to consider other options. The second type aspires to start their own business, regardless of risks. For these aspiring entrepreneurs, it’s essential to have faith and desire to achieve this goal while minimizing risks. “I advise you not to quit your job immediately when pursuing your dream. Dedicate about 25% of your time to your project while still employed,” he expounds. “If your project starts generating about 60% of your current salary, you can consider leaving your job to focus fully on your venture. With only 25% of your time, imagine the success when dedicated 100% if it yields such results.”

He states that achieving success is not easy; it requires hard work, perseverance, overcoming challenges, and taking risks. A key factor is believing in oneself, feeling internally successful, and understanding that true success is self-defined, not determined by others. Success sometimes requires taking risks, but it’s crucial to engage in calculated risks that don’t destroy the company. Just as one calculates profits, one should also anticipate and calculate potential losses. Therefore, any risk should be at most 20 to 30 percent of the company’s capital. This way, even if the risk results in a loss, it won’t significantly impact the company’s ongoing operations.

“Harnessing positive energies around you towards achieving your goals is vital. My own success wasn’t easy and took considerable time to materialize,” elucidates Munir. “My role model is anyone who has achieved success in their field, but my admiration isn’t limited to their accomplishments alone. I look up to those who combine success with good character, loyalty, honesty, humility, adherence to principles, and respect for others. When a person embodies all these qualities, they become a life and work inspiration to me.
