‘Failures are positive steps for success’

‘Failures are positive steps for success’

Gaur Gopal Das

“Success is not about having, it’s about living,” said motivational speaker Gaur Gopal Das.

He was delivering a special talk on ‘Secrets of Success,’ organised by Rostrum, a Speakers’ Club of Alva’s Education Foundation here, on Saturday.

“Success does not mean achievement. Its definition keeps on changing. Through the changing times success achieved in the previous stages becomes irrelevant and the achievements should never be considered as success in present time. Your talent and skills may take you to certain heights but the attitude filled within you is what takes you to the higher destiny,” he added.

He revealed three keys of success as 3 C’s. “Choosing to be better version of oneself, change with the changing time, connect as a support system will help in success. Failures are part of life they should be taken as positive steps towards success,” he exhorted.

While explaining the necessity of adopting the changes, he said, ‘When Facebook acquired Microsystems, Mark Zuckerberg didn’t replace Sun Microsystems’s sign. Instead, he flipped it over and put Facebook’s name on the front. The Sun logo reminds employees to stay motivated. It demonstrates what can happen when you’re on top but fail to innovate.”

The great names of today, Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikanth, Deepa Malik, Jonty Rhodes had suffered in their initial days, but they never gave up.

Book released

Das’s new book ‘Life’s amazing secrets’ was released during the event.

Alva’s Education Foundation Chairman Dr M Mohan Alva, Jain mutt seer Charukeerthi Bhattaraka Swami, Trustee Vivek Alva were present among others.
