I am not a huge fan of fast Success Stories.

I am not a huge fan of fast Success Stories.

1. They are typically meaningless. 

2. They highlight prodigies. 

3. They talk of only best practices. 

I am someone-

1. Who cracked my GMAT in my 3rd attempt. 

2. Dreamt of getting into Boston Consulting Group (BCG) at 21, got in at 28. 

3. It was my 74th video on Youtube that went viral on internet. 

There are rarely things I got right on my first attempt. 

My story is a classic example of careers being nonlinear curves. 

Even, Einstein flunked to clear entrance examination for a polytechnic school in Zurich for the first time!

Slow success stories are holistic. 

They teach you more about what not to do and toil in the face of adversity. 

In the end, it will always be stories like 'The Pursuit of Happyness'

That will bring tears to your eyes ❤️
