Satya, Founder CL Educate (formerly Career Launcher), as the Chairman BOG, Indus World school of Business delivered a short but very impacting address –
I still vividly recall Azim Premji, addressing us on our convocation at IIM Bangalore, two decades ago. Today, Deep is on the campus to address you. Azim, was heading Wipro, then known for consumer goods and not as much for technology. Perhaps Wipro was just of the size of MakeMyTrip today, that Deep has founded and anchored.
I would just like to share my biggest learning in life.
PLEASE EMBRACE THE MINDSET OF ENDEAVOR AND NOT THE MINDSET OF ENTITLEMENT.
Entrepreneurship dismantles all these entitlements.
We may have got many degrees from best of the schools; our parents may be well known; all these do not hold water.
What is that you can move by what you are; nothing is very sacrosanct than endeavor. At the end of the day, I recall the mindset of endeavor. We are recognized by what we deliver at the end of the day!
You should be known by your religiosity of the day. If I don’t move the moon, the day has not been worthwhile.
Attitude and Work-ethic beget what you deserve.
Thanks and Best wishes.
