Harping on the big importance of AMBITION, Mr. Pradeep Tewari said, “An institution is like a ladder; you have to climb on your own. You have to have commitment, passion, and a willingness to learn. Institutions provide you with facilities, training and the rest; still, do all students achieve the same level of success? Students have the same level of intelligence, but the results are different. The reason is AMBITION and PASSION!” The distinguished guest then went on to outline the few cardinal things to achieve one’s AMBITION. These included Time-Management, Self-Vision, Dedication, Determination, Setting A Goal, Smart Work, and Meeting The Challenges.
