Getting in a good B-school is challenging and the 2 year MBA programme even more so. But doing an MBA was an ambition that I wanted to fulfill. Hard work, perseverance and discipline are the values that I have inculcated in my life. Whatever a difficult situation demands from me I never compromise on these values and believe in myself to overcome them. I have learned not to be afraid of failures. Failures have taught me a very important lesson of how to bounce back when down and out. Most importantly it is about never giving up and trying each and every day to reach the end goal. Nothing beats the power of knowledge. If I am unsure or I feel that I don’t have the required information to take a decision, I try to educate myself from all mediums possible- be it my peers or people who have subject matter expertise in that field. Time management is also a skill that I have developed in the past that helps me to be on track and not lose sight of the end goal. If I plan my time well, I feel that I am in control of the situation always and don’t have to panic later. Timelines and milestones give clearer picture of the progress that I have done and helps me map out the next course of action. Being organized and on top of the game helps reduce anxieties about the future and helps me make good progress on the task at hand. #NMIMSMumbai #ABGLPWooMe
