Speaking on the occasion, he stressed on the need to think more towards improvement in the social conditions of the nation. He emphasized on three important points which can help an individual in achieving goal of his life.
“Make some ideas, create some ideas and work on them” was his first message to the management students at XLRI. He encouraged the audience to focus on their ideas and not to get disheartened by mistakes or failures. Secondly, he advised the audience not to think always to get things right first time. He gave examples of great scientists and philosophers like Socrates, Ptolemy, Copernicus and Einstein.
All of these eminent personalities have always thought differently and creatively and were never bogged down by failures. Lastly, he impressed upon the need to have ‘bias for action’ in one’s life. Many of us do have great ideas and plans but those will be of no use if we don’t try to implement our thoughts into action. The most important is to try as we all know that failure is just a stepping stone to success.
