On the success-sutra in business, Rahul said “For me, success is the feeling of contentment I get with the work I do, the hard-working people I’m surrounded with, and self-motivation I’m able to derive within me. When all such things come all together, you become successful. This requires hard labor because you not only have to work on yourself but also on the others. I believe the ability to motivate others (or colleagues) and be empathetic with their self-paced way to success because then you get support from them and you internally feel satisfied. Be it any position you work at, it’s your positive attitude and self-motivation that encourages your colleagues to double their efforts and work more enthusiastically. I always try to remain self-motivated for the goals I set and not to look for the motivation outside.”
