  4. Prashant Agarwal:

    Nothing in life is easy, you may be facing several problems & you may be suffering from pain, which you think no one can understand. You might have little resources but you cannot achieve anything unless you strive for it & try for it. You need to be committed to your goals; you need to be passionate for getting success in the field of your interest. Every day is a new day, bringing you new opportunities. And if you are responsible and aware of your needs, and are willing to perform and take all the necessary steps that are required for you to achieve your goal, then trust me nothing can stop you. You need to be like that lion who is hungry and is waiting for his prey and whose roar is loud enough for his enemies to know that he won’t compromise for anything unless he gets it. It's just one life and you need to make the most out of it. Don’t compromise on it for temporary reasons and worries. You need to realize that you might face several challenges, might go through circumstances which are difficult to deal with, which might break you, make you fall hard on the ground but each time when you stand again you would be stronger than before. Admit your mistakes and be willing to improvise and rectify the things that went wrong earlier to get better results next time. Be planned enough, be responsible for each action that you take, be committed so that nothing can break you. Be passionate so that nothing can stop you & keep on performing irrespective of all your failures.

  5. Bill Beham:
