27,455 plays

This lesson consists a strategy cum motivational talk from Vivek. He describes his struggle which he came across to achieve success. He explains each phase of his life where he faced failures. A very famous quote " Failure is not the opposite of success, it is a stepping stone to success", said by Arianna Huffington, and a live example, a replica of this quote is the achievement of Vivek who secured All India Rank of 300 in UPSC CSE. One can definitely learn how crucial is to learn from mistakes and how to gain positives from them rather than regretting ​and quitting the struggle to achieve goals.

Vivek Chauhan
Secured AIR 300 in UPSC CSE 2015. Also hold a L.L.B., L.L.M., B.ed. degree.

awesome story bro ! You are inspiration for me to give 2nd attempt. Before launch of this website, i already watched your story on youtube for 3-4 times. Don't reply to negative ones, only haters who never cleared this exam can write such petty things based on their negative perception ! Thanks for joining Unacademy .
