Ladder to Success
Mr. Rahul Sasi talked about how to overcome fears in life by pushing ourselves out of the comfort zone. He highlighted that every individual must push through doubts and insecurities because the day we stop doing that, it’s the moment you stop growing in life. One should not take no for an example. Rather than learn from failures and be ambitious in life. The biggest challenge is that with every push, one experiences short pains, but will see its results in long run.
