Businessman Vinod Gupta, just last month, wrote an article on Medium about how to succeed in today’s society. Gupta mentions the stories of people rising to power and having success out of nowhere, but he does not believe that.
Instead, he believes that hard work over a period of time is the key to being successful. Gupta relates to his own story and how he had to work hard for years and stay true to his vision to achieve success. His first tip is to take risks in life and not let excuses get the best of an individual.
Vinod Gupta relates it to his own story coming from an Indian village with no resources and no money. He attended college with a belief that he would make it out on the other side and that if he didn’t make the decision to leave his village, he surely could be there now. The businessman understands how we can get overwhelmed in our lives, but that the best thing to do is to do the work and add more to it.
He believes that sometimes we can be our worst enemy and can let ourselves down with having doubts about ourselves. His other tip is to not take the pedal off the metal. What that means is not being satisfied with doing the bare minimum or laying off after achieving some success.
Vinod Gupta also shares his Business Lessons and for others to get involved in philanthropic work, specifically investing in education, as he believes it is the light of the future for many. He also believes it is necessary to not forget about family and in spending time with them. Gupta ends the article noting that finding happiness is the key to being successful too and in finding out a specific passion for something.
Vinod Gupta is the Chairman of Everest Group LLC in Omaha, Nebraska. He was the founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Infogroup, a technology company and started the Vinod Gupta Charitable Foundation.
