Why your exam results do not define your future?
While your Board Exams are important stepping stones in your educational journey, success or failure in them does not define how you would fare in life. You may be miles away from the all India topper but treat your board exam results as just another mark sheet. It does not define who you are as an individual and what you are capable of achieving professionally.
Here are 5 successful people who proved that failure in school does not equal to failure in life:
Sachin is a name that needs no introduction. Known as the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar left his studies after 10th standard for his passion for cricket.
From giving blockbuster hits to winning the National Award, he has done it all. But do you know that he had failed in a school exam? At that time, he did not give up and encouraged by his parents, he focussed on something he was passionate about – Sports – and the rest they say is history.
Kailash Katkar, came from an extremely humble background and had to drop out after his 10th grade due to familial circumstances. Since he was good with gadgets, he worked at a small radio and calculator repair shop. Instead of just giving up, he decided to learn everything about the business and his craft and became a self-taught expert technician. Soon he started computer courses to become conversant in handling and understanding the new technology. He would later start a modest computer services business that we know today as the ₹200-crore+ Quick Heal Technologies, dealing in anti-virus software.
Having only completed his 10th grade, he set off to Mumbai to chase success. He got a job working in a small bakery. Two years later he would start his own small business selling dosas. Now, there are Dosa Plazas across the world including New Zealand, Oman and even UAE!
He had to drop out after 10th grade to start working. While he initially joined his family business, he would go on to develop some of the most successful business enterprises in India including Zee Television. Today he is the chairman of Essel Group, an Indian conglomerate that has stakes in various industries including news, media, television, technology, education and more.
These are just some of the many people who did not let their schooling affect their professional success. All they did was find their real passion and interest and follow it. And so, can you! Let your board exam performance does not determine your career success.
