Apart from all these things Mr. Barnwal shared his thoughts about life skills. Any professional ought to have the following qualities to succeed in life :
“Think big , dream big. Have vivid thoughts on your career path based on your passion. Explore it in a few years if you are not sure. Don’t think too much about the failure – it is an incident – take learning and move on but remember that the world shall not give you too many opportunities, so don’t repeat your mistakes and get exposed to unnecessary criticism. It is said, “Mistake is the first step to success. But the fact is correction of mistake is the first step to success. ”
He also mentioned few sources to learn from among which were Internship, industry visits, projects, conference, presentation, meeting and web based learning.
