Hi! I Am Ashik Shah

SAP ABAP Consultant And Motivational Speaker

Let's   Start

About Me

I completed my Bachelors in Computer Science from Jamal Mohamed College, Trichy, Tamilnadu, India and went on to pursue my Masters in Computer Applications from Gandhigram Rural Institute, Dindigul, Tamilnadu in 2008 and 2011 respectively. My area of interest include Technology Training and Public Speaking. Successfully trained around 300 students in SAP ABAP technology and imparted around 30 guest lectures in various colleges and schools in and around Tamilnadu. I am currently designated as an SAP ABAP Consultant in a reputed MNC.

My Journey

"Great things happen when you least expect them.." finally, I have grown as a passionate trainer. I have failed multiple times and still I think that my journey to success is always under construction and progress is the only way of life. I have discovered that I too can inspire students when I was called for a guest lecture to final year engineering students in 2010. This lecture was a turning point in my life and was where I found a trainer in me.

Belief Points

A zeal to perform and deliver the best, the fire to beat your own records, the efforts you put to understand the students and filling the gap between a student and a teacher, a good presentation mode to keep a student engaged makes a good trainer.


SAP ABAP Technical Training

As a Technical Consultant, learned how to transform my skills in the best possible ways and shortened the fight between the code and a student by easing the ways of understanding. By providing Effective notes, keeps the students engaged even when the trainer is offline.

Public Speaking

As a Motivational Speaker, willing to meet the students to expand their world of possibilities and raising them to reach new horizons in life. "The best way to achieve something big is not by starting something big but giving a small start that will grow big"". I strongly believe in this saying and I keep this as my moral for training.

A Story from the Lens of RATAN TATA

Germany is a highly industrialized country. In such a country, many will think its people lead a luxurious life. When we arrived at Hamburg, my colleagues walked into the restaurant, we noticed that a lot of tables were empty. There was a table where a young couple was having their meal. There were only two dishes and two cans of beer on the table. I wondered if such simple meal could be romantic, and whether the girl will leave this stingy guy.

There were a few old ladies on another table. When a dish is served, the waiter would distribute the food for them, and they would finish every bit of the food on their plates. As we were hungry, our local colleague ordered more food for us. When we left, there was still about one third of un-consumed food on the table.

When we were leaving the restaurant, the old ladies spoke to us in English, we understood that they were unhappy about us wasting so much food.

"We paid for our food, it is none of your business how much food we left behind," my colleague told the old ladies. The old ladies were furious. One of them immediately took her hand phone out and made a call to someone. After a while, a man in uniform from Social Security organization arrived. Upon knowing what the dispute was, he issued us a 50 Euro fine. We all kept quiet.

The officer told us in a stern voice, "order what you can consume, money is yours but resources belong to the society. There are many others in the world who are facing shortage of resources. You have no reason to waste resources"

The mindset of people of this rich country put all of us to shame. WE REALLY NEED TO REFLECT ON THIS. We are from country which is not very rich in resources. To save face, we order large quantity and also waste food when we give othersa treat.

Think Differently

Many hundreds of years ago in a small Italian town, a merchant had the misfortune of owing a large sum of money to the moneylender. The moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the merchant’s beautiful daughter so he proposed a bargain. He said he would forgo the merchant’s debt if he could marry the daughter. Both the merchant and his daughter were horrified by the proposal.

The moneylender told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty bag. The girl would then have to pick one pebble from the bag.If she picked the black pebble, she would become the moneylender’s wife and her father’s debt would be forgiven. If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father’s debt would still be forgiven. But if she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into jail.

They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the merchant’s garden. As they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two black pebbles and put them into the bag. He then asked the girl to pick her pebble from the bag.

What would you have done if you were the girl? If you had to advise her, what would you have told her? Careful analysis would produce three possibilities:

  1. The girl should refuse to take a pebble.
  2. The girl should show that there were two black pebbles in the bag and expose the moneylender as a cheat.
  3. The girl should pick a black pebble and sacrifice herself in order to save her father from his debt and imprisonment.

The above story is used with the hope that it will make us appreciate the difference between lateral and logical thinking.

The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles.

"Oh, how clumsy of me," she said. “But never mind, if you look into the bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which pebble I picked." Since the remaining pebble is black, it must be assumed that she had picked the white one. And since the moneylender dared not admit his dishonesty, the girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into an advantageous one.

Most complex problems do have a solution, sometimes we have to think about them in a different way.


A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers). The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation.

Boy: ‘Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?

Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): ‘I already have someone to cut my lawn.’

Boy: ‘Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now.’

Woman: I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.

Boy: (with more perseverance) : ‘Lady, I’ll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach , Florida.’

Woman: No, thank you.

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store Owner: ‘Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.’

Boy: ‘No thanks.’

Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the Job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!’

"Every time if we don't get ahead of others, we blame others for it. We should look to our self and compare, find own weaknesses and work hard to throw away weaknesses. Always Work Hard, Honest and with full Dedication. It will always pay up."

Who stopped my progress?

One day all the employees reached the office and saw a big advice written on the door.

"Yesterday the person who has been stopping your growth in this company passed away. You are invited to join the funeral."

In the beginning, they got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they got curious to know ‘who was the man who stopped their growth'.

Everyone thought: 'Well at least the man who stopped my progress died!'

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside they were speechless. They stood shocked in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside could see him/herself.

There was a sign next to the mirror that read

"There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth…It is you. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, success and realization."

Your life does not change when your boss, friend or company changes...your life changes when you change…you go beyond your limiting beliefs and you realize you are the only one responsible for your life.

It's the way you face life makes the difference!

"If an egg is broken from outside force….life ends but if it is broken from inside force life begins. Great things always begin from our inside."

Challenge yourself

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish.

But the water close to Japan has not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.

The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish. If the return trip took more time, the fish were not fresh. To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats.

They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish and they did not like the taste of frozen fish the frozen fish fetched a lower price.

So, fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste.

The fishing industry faced an impending crisis! But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan.How did they manage…?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks but with a small shark. The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move.

The challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh!

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull….?

Basically in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active. If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy.

Your challenges keep you energized. Don’t create Success and revel in it in a state of inertia. You have the resources, skills and abilities to make a difference.

"Put a shark in your tank this year and see how far you can really go. Challenge your Self!"

Our Self Confidence Can Change Everything!!

A Businessman was deep in debt and could not see any way out. Creditors and Suppliers were demanding payments. He sat in the park, deep in thought, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy. Suddenly an old man appeared before him and asked, "I can see that something is troubling you seriously". After listening patiently the old man said, "I believe I can help you".

He asked the man his name, wrote out a cheque and put it into his hands saying, "Take this money, meet me here exactly one year from today… and you can pay me back at that time". Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come. The businessman saw in his hands a cheque for $500,000… signed by Warren Buffet, one of the richest men in the world.

"I can erase my worries instantly" he realized. But instead, the man decided to put the uncashed cheque in his safe, knowing that it might give him the strength to work out to save his business and to use this only in case of dire emergency. With changed thinking he negotiated better deals, restructured his business and worked rigorously with full zeal and enthusiasm and got several big deals. Within few months, he was out of debt and started making money once again. Exactly one year later he returned to the park with the uncashed cheque. As agreed, the old man appeared.

But just as the businessman was about to hand him back the cheque and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man. “I’m so glad I caught him” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you much. He always escapes from the mental hospital and tells people that he is Warren Buffet”, saying this she took the old man away. The surprised man just stood there, stunned! All year long he had been dealing thinking that he had half a million dollars behind him.

"It's not the money, real or imagined that turns our life around. It is our Self-confidence that gives us the power to achieve anything & everything that we want."
