Anil Kapoor’s Advise to QNET IRs based on his own life experience, as they pursue their journey to success:
- Trust yourself as that’s the only way you can make your mark.
- Think out of the box.
- Be ready to fail. You lose out on great opportunities because of your fear of failure.
- Don’t forget to thank your family and friends for their relentless support of you.
He spoke about the importance of never giving up on your dreams, and to embrace failure as it is a bridge that leads you to your goals. He said that failure was such a small part of life that the worst that could happen is that you are made fun of, but if you put your ego aside and keep trying, you will accomplish all you want in life.
Parting words of wisdom from Anil Kapoor – Surround yourself with positive people and open yourself up to healthy criticism, but do not let negativity bring you down.
