Recently, I had the privilege of hosting Pankaj Tripathi as a guest on my podcast Figuring Out. If anyone has even the slightest notion of Indian cinema aka Bollywood, they would have heard his name. He is a real life example of how far you can go just by hard work and talent. To him, success is not how many crores his film made rather how much impact his movie had on the audience. And now, I will share with you his secrets to make it big.

1. Patience and perseverance

Rome was not built in a day. So, you have to be patient and do your hardwork in silence. Most of us do not get immediate results of our work, but remember that we will. The Universe is all about balance and when you are giving something in terms of your hardwork and perseverance, you will get something positive in return. But, yes, you cannot give up and you have to be resilient. Perseverance is another important quality that we must all inculcate in ourselves. You might fail an exam, an investor may declare your business idea as unworthy, in spite of that you have to move forward and never look back. Learn from your mistakes. But do not let yourself be affected by it.

2. Believe in yourself

No matter which field you are working in, if you do not believe in yourself, then you can get nowhere. Therefore it is important to choose a field that you are actually passionate about and you have an interest in. If you keep doing something out of peer pressure or because of family pressure, you would not be able to keep up with the demands. And above all, you must be confident. Because if you do not hype yourself up, then who will? Your well-wishers are there for you but they can only do so much from the sidelines. You are in the heat of the whole thing and you have to believe in yourself and that is how you take a stride forward.

3. Making a plan for yourself

While talking about the success of business, I have often said that it is necessary for you to make a 10-year plan for your business, so that you can achieve the goals one by one. Same goes for our life. We have to make a vision board, a goal of where we see ourselves in about 5 years. Then? Then you have to chalk out the steps of how you plan to reach there. Break it into even smaller steps that you need to do on a daily basis. And you will get there. Without a goal in front of yourself, you will lose your direction and vision. You have to know that this is what I believe in and this is how I am going to reach there.

Consistency is also another important aspect. You work for 10 hours one day and the next, barely 3 hours. That will get you nowhere. You have to be consistent in your efforts no matter what. And of course you have to give yourself a break. Because at the end of the day, our target is quality work, and for that to happen you have to let your mind rest and let it unwind.
