Gupta shares how others can follow in his footsteps and succeed in this modern world we live in. To start off, he emphasizes you must take chances. Gupta is from a small village in India without much, so when the opportunity for him to attend university in Nebraska arose, it’s no surprise he’d be nervous about leaving his family behind with barely a dollar in his pocket.
Yet he decided to take the chance and as he says “fortune favors the bold”. The next piece of advice is to bite off more than you can chew. Vinod Gupta highlights how it’s easy to get overwhelmed and forget how capable we are. You must convince yourself that you can can do it, even if that means you have to buckle down and continue to move forward. Next you must redefine your success. He says you must continuously reconsider what success means to you. He proclaims that even though you may feel like you’ve reached the top, there’s always more success or accomplishments you could be going after. Visit This Page for additional information.
In addition to this, he reminds us to make our loved ones a priority. All the success and money you make is nothing if you don’t have someone close to share it with. Lastly Vinod claims the true key to succeed is to follow your bliss, you’ll never consider yourself successful unless you are happy with what you are doing. Gupta’s passion is doing charitable work and this makes all the success he’s had in his life worthwhile.
