If you are like millions of people, you probably would’ve embarked in a weight loss journey at some point of your life trying to lose a little weight or maybe a lot of weight. You must’ve tried number of diets and exercises to make this happen but when you don’t see the desired results in the first few days, have you found yourself quitting? We easily give up on our goals because we are not seeing the desired results at the moment.

 

Furthermore, as humans we all dream of becoming something big, an entrepreneur, a chief executive officer, we love the idea of becoming successful and famous but what happens when life throws the first road block at us? We give up on our dreams entirely and assume failure because the process of gaining new knowledge and mastering a skill wasn’t the force that was driving us; it was the shiny reward at the end.

 

Don’t you think that we are conditioned to want instant results in whatever we do? The key principles to achieve some level of success like being patient, working hard and staying consistent in our journey are no more seen in us. This is why it is difficult for us to stick to the goals that we had set for ourselves. We focus so much on the results that if we don’t achieve it within the time we set for ourselves, we QUIT.

 

Let’s take a look at what will happen if we shift our mindset and focus on the process rather than the result in our journey towards our goals.

 

You can outwork your competitors: There are many people in the world who are much more talented, smarter and creative than us but when if we have the ability to keep on going no matter what happens, we will be able to beat our opponent. I would like to share what Will Smith once said about how he got to be more successful in his career.

“The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple, right?
You’re not going to out-work me. It’s such a simple, basic concept. The guy who is willing to hustle the most is going to be the guy that just gets that loose ball. The majority of people who aren’t getting the places they want or aren’t achieving the things that they want in this business is strictly based on hustle. It’s strictly based on being out-worked; it’s strictly based on missing crucial opportunities. I say all the time if you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready.”

We all need to cultivate this discipline. If we work hard consistently, then we can outperform even our toughest competitors easily.

 

You gain satisfaction in the pursuit: Success is a journey, not a destination. When we focus on the process, we pay attention to the present and enjoy it fully. Having our eyes only on the end results will make us hate the work we need to do in order to get there. When you constantly look at the future, where our results are, the fact that we can’t get there this very minute makes us unhappy with the process that we are currently doing and eventually quit. But, on the other hand when you become present to the process of getting there, we focus on building the skills that we need to develop in order to get the results and enjoy the process of doing so.

 

As Abraham Lincoln rightly said, “If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree, I would spend six of those hours sharpening my axe.”, if we want to succeed in our endeavors, we need to live in the present and pay attention on mastering the skills that are needed in the long journey ahead.

 

I know consistency can be tiring. Putting in the effort, day in and day out for a long time, will make us feel like a loser. Not seeing those results for a while can be really frustrating; this is where most people quit but hang in there, If you can push through this phase and keep putting in the efforts even if it feels like going nowhere, you can achieve extraordinary things in Life !

Our commitment to delivering the best mobile app testing solution motivates us to come up with product updates at regular intervals. We feel elated to announce the release of pCloudy 5.7 with exciting new features to make app testing simple and faster. Our customers trust us because we believe in exceeding their expectations and enhance the platform’s capabilities. For those who are new to pCloudy, it is a cloud-based continuous testing platform designed to enrich mobile apps. In this new version of pCloudy, we have addressed the concerns of our users and added new features like QR code scanner, app language change, and more. Let’s know more about all these features.

QR code/barcode scanner

This has been one of the most demanded features for pCloudy that enable users to scan a QR code or a barcode on any Android device present on the pCloudy platform. To use the feature, you need to register on the pCloudy platform. You also need an application under test which supports QR code scanning and a QR code file(test QR codes). To test the QR code scanner function, upload the QR file image in MyApp/Data, connect any Android device, install the QR Code file in the device.



test-QR-code

Then select the app and install it on the connected device. Select the test QR code file that has to be scanned and the app will scan the injected QR code. This feature is supported on Android 5.0 devices and later versions. Supported QR Code file formats are .png,.jpeg and jpg.

App Language Change

In today’s global, and multicultural economy many users want to use their apps in their native languages. A new feature, released in pCloudy called “App Language Change”, enables users to change the language in the installed application while testing the app.


ios-language
This feature will work on both Android and iOS platforms. For Android devices, the device language will be changed and once the app is installed (if that app supports language change) then the installed app will appear in the language that is selected for the device. For iOS devices, the language of the pre-installed app will be changed in only those apps that support language change. In iOS you need to select a region as some apps behave differently based upon different regions.

More updates

WebURL/Cross-browser testing: We have added a new browser (MS edge) on the list. Now you can ensure that your web app delivers a great digital experience on the MS Edge browser.
Appium 1.17: The latest version of Appium is now supported by pCloudy.
More action on Android and iOS devices: Now users will be able to use double tap and mouse scroll on Android/iOS devices.

To conclude

The new features added to the platform will help our users to perform live testing efficiently without any hassle. Features like the latest Appium support and better user interaction on the iOS devices will empower our users to speed up automation. We are working on some new features requested by our users, which will be included in the next release. So stay connected for more updates.
