Students interact with Anil Sachdev; find answers to their problems

Founder and CEO of Grow Talent Company Limited and School Of Inspired Leadership (SOIL) Anil Sachdev stressed on the very purpose of life and leadership qualities in every student.

He was delivering his talk at ‘annual leadership series 2013’ at Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD) here on Monday. He cited his experiences of life and his journey towards success, which was greeted by huge applause from students.

Starting from his childhood days, where his father who was addicted to alcohol and smoking was transformed to be pious after listening to discourses of Swami Chinmayananda, Sachdev presented the important stages of his life as an entrepreneur and his way in opening his institute and companies.

There was a lesson for everyone present in the auditorium. Students, faculty and even few of the parents present had an opportunity to gain inspiration by his talk.

“Even I was inspired to listen to Swami Chinmayananda at a very young age and travel long miles for that. The questions which arose in my mind during the Sunday morning classes at Balavihar, where we were told stories found answers only in preachings of the saint,” he added.

Pointing out that every human being is a leader, he said, students should first recognise the very purpose of their life and of becoming a leader. Each one has special talents within, be it, music, literature, dealing with people and many more. They should identify their talents and plan in order to work for the purpose.

He suggested the students to dream high and work with regard to attain their success. “A study reveals that Indian parents are worst and discourage their children to dream big. Create a dream for yourself and live with it,” he said.

Quoting a Chinese Philosopher, Sachdev said, a nap can make a person happy for an hour, a marriage can keep a person happy for a month, lottery can keep him happy for a year but for a lifetime happiness, find a way to make others happy.

The young people in the country are more talented. They are not useless, but they are used less, he said.
Interacting with the students in the session, he said, they have different things to learn from all their experiences and the critical situations educate more. Responses are more important than reactions. “There are tragedies in lives of people which have converted their circumstances into rendering a worthwhile service,” he added.

Sachdev observed that failure, ambiguity, criticism and lack of time avoid entrepreneurs from taking brave steps in business field. A student noted that he withdrew his plan of opening a company with few of his friends after everything necessary was ready. “I refrained myself during time of registration of the company,” the student added.

Responding to him, Sachdev suggested him to overcome fear and create conditions to attain success. Managing time and other aspects are practical solutions for the problems encountered by such entrepreneurs. “The confusions also stop us from being innovative, avoid them,” he added.

He said, even he was discouraged when he wanted to open SOIL and the other company but he learnt from all the critical situations to face problems.

Director of the Institute N R Parashuraman, chairperson of PGDM programme Neetu Ganapathy and others were present.
