Today I am here to talk to you about success It’s a word that draws a lot of reactions And it basically draws 2 stories If you look around yourself You will see that around you 2 kinds of success stories are present The first story is the one where a student starts school starts topping his class, right from nursery, Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and remains a continuous topper, going into 10th become a board topper, going into 12th becomes a board topper He gives his first competitive exam And he tops that exam and goes into a great college like an IIT or a top medical college in India or whatever he chooses And from there, his or her life just takes off And there is no stopping him The second story Is the one I’m going to talk about And that’s much more relevant for all of us Because all of us do not belong to that category Hi this is Arun Sharma here I am an IIM Bangalore graduate And there’s a story behind that The focus or the gist of the talk I want to give you Are about 4 take aways That create the second success story And if you want to make it in your life And you do not belong to that first category of people Who took off right from their education And you still want to take off in your life I’m going to give you 4 takeaways at the end of this Session where You will get specific significant tools which you can use to change any dimension of your personal success story and create your own stories So what is that second success story That story is, that the person is normal he doesn’t achieve much in his school His teacher don’t remember him, they don’t know who he is When he gives his 10th, he is an average student There is no breakthrough throughout his life And suddenly He turns himself at one point When I was in school and college I was a very ordinary student I never topped my class section, forget about school And yet today I have sold close to 3 Billion books My books on CAT are kind of the Bibles in that segment now Everybody studies them What are the components of this story How do you turn yourself around You are a normal individual Nothing special has happened in your life in the past 20 years Like my story As a look back, I realised That there were 4 vaccum’s in my life For the first 20 years And the moment I started realising about these vacuum’s And I started filling them my life started changing around So much so that, today when I look at myself Or I look at anybody around me And I specialize as a teacher, my speciality is turning around people’s lives When I look at helping people do it I realise that anybody at any point of life can actually pick up these 4 things and change who he is The first one As I went through school and college I realised in hindsight That the first vacuum in my life was the vacuum of a challenge So if I look at my challenges, you can do this for your life as well My entire challenge history, till my entire academic career, till I was 21 years old Was that society told me that you should do well in 10th I got a target from my family That you have to get more than 80 % in 10th I got an 81 percent and I succeeded When I reached standard 12th, I was given a target to score more than my 10th grade I got 82 percent, I succeeded But my life did not go anywhere And the first time my life changed or started to change Was when I picked up a challenge to actually make it to the IIM’s Nobody from my college had ever made it At that time, and when I decided that I’ll take up that challenge My first vacuum started getting filled in my life And I made sure that from then on this vacuum of a challenge never came in my life You see the problem with the first 2 challenges I picked up Was that I was always focused or doing things that society was telling me to do the moment I started changing that and the moment I started putting myself behind doing something which would change what I was doing A challeneg is defined by 2 characteristics It should be auacious And it should be close to impossible from where you think about it anything else is not a challenge So if you’re not picking up audacious challenges in your life that’s the first reason you’ve maybe not succeeded in your life And that’s what I realised So once I reached IIM From there, I again started a journey, as an entrepreneur As a passed out, because I did not want to work in the corporate world Life was cushy in the corportae world, but I decided I would be an entrepreneur And then the knock started again Because when you start entrepreneurship, it isn’t very easy And that is when I started realizing That there were 2-3 more thing that I was doing wrong Due to which I was not succeeding And I see that happening across now as a success coach, as a person who helps other people succeed in whatever they do These are the 3 things I advice everyone to do The second vaccum that you see in people Is the vacuum of excellence People pick up challenges but they don’t define the excellence that they need to do to achieve those challenges so for instance in my own personal life when I became a teacher, when I decided to become a teacher And I was struggling in my own life the issue did arise That how do I make it big from what I was doing And as I always tell people That how well you do your work is the only thing that counts So as a teacher when I was trying to train people for the CAT And other aptitude exams I realized that one of the things that I need to do is get inside these exams and need to know, because If I need to execute excellence in my classes in my classrooms and I defined one thing At that time I was teaching in Patna And nobody had heard about CAT from Patna And I took a decision in my life That if I’m teaching atopic or doing a session on personality or whatever I was doing staying there in Patna I had to be the best in the country And I had to be as good as I had to be And it was that decision that forced me to then start deciding That if I’m training for the CAT, if I’m training these people to qualify these exams I need to undesratnd what these exams are And although I was an IIM Bangalore graduate I started taking the CAT again and again And that’s what built the record of actually cracking these 18 times Everytime with a 99.99+ percentile And I’ve got everything from a 99.93 to a 99.99 every year The problem with all of us, the problem that I was having in my life Was that I was looking for excellence everywhere outside I wanted my Prime Minister to be excellent I wanted the waiter in the hotel to be excellent If he was not excellent in what he was doing, I would be very concerned about his excellence But my personal concern about my excellence and what I was doing was zero So just invert this and this vacuum will get filled Expect excellence from yourself And accept mediocrity from other That’s the second vacuum And that led me to understanding the third and the fourth vacuum and when I started working, towards doing things better or doing things to the best of my abilities There are times when you fail, not because you have not executed excellence or not because you’ve not picked up a challenge but there are times when you fail because you have not learnt, or improved your ability to the level where you need to be and in that context your learning cycles in life after your graduation or school, and college gets over become the most important take off point for you and this is the one of the critical aspects, which in most people maximum people have the greatest learning ability you just look at the video of Sachin Tendulkar batting when he was 18,28 and 38 and you’ll know what I mean how that guy learnt, or how any great person learns And in our life the learning vacuum is one of the biggest vacuum’s which we don’t realize once we step out of school and college That every year what is it that I have to learn, how do I improve myself on a day to day basis So we do not have a learning curriculum But learning is the fine tuning of things About how you do your work better So in the domain you decide, that this is the work I want to do What are the learnings required in that dimension If I want to be a mountaineer and I’m not good at climbing mountains Or my physical abilities are not good I have to change it, just excellence and challenges suffice to be successful So that’s the third vacuum you need to fill in your life Be a life long learner Keep learning, keep setting agendas for becoming a better version of yourself And then once these 3 vacuum’s are filled You’ll see the 4th vacuum in people So you’ll find people who are great in everything every person, who while noticing you will find that ‘wow’ this guy has such great skills But if you see their profile, their data, achievements you will feel they haven’t done anything And that’s where the 4th vacuum comes in, if you fill this 4ht vacuum you end up transforming yourself in whatever dimensions you want to be And the 4th vacuum is the vacuum of doing And this is again a problem with most people They will take care of the first three without doing the requisite work so I see a lot of people come to me I want to take up CAT, I want to do this in life but when it comes to doing that work the quality of the work and the quality of the doing is zero So I want to build a bride across the river, I take up the challenge, but I don’t do it It’s going to be ending up as useless outcome And I’m not going to get the outcomes So this were the components of the second success story You’ve done nothing in your life You’ve not achieved any great outcomes in your life And yet you can pick up your life from this point And change yourself, transform who you are By taking thse 4 circular routes First, the vacuum of a challenge, fill that Second, the vacuum of excellence start looking for excellence inside yourself only accept and expect excellence from yourself hate the mediocrity in yourself Third, the vacuum of learning make sure you find out what you need to learn in the dimensions of what you define who you are as Because that’s the most critical aspect of becoming a better version of youself And the Fourth and the final is the doing, the circle closes by the doing of what you need to do please remember this is the most critical part of the 4 dimensions That is going to create the story for you the second story that we talked about the doing deep inside, you might be, the same great kid, you always were but please remember it is not what you are underneath that counts What defines you is what you do and that’s the only thing that counts Thank you so much

  1. Is toping an exam is actually what we called intelligence than why the fuck these topper end up doing a fucked up job believe in yourself and follow your human instinct

  2. mana k tumhari books achhi hai..lekin
    bhai jab 1st time mai h cat nikal diya vo bhi achhe no. se to 17 baar or nikalne k kya jarurat thi…i think u would have a got a better job on the 1st time itself…
    but the other 17 times tumne seat waste kri hai ..usi 16 seat pr kisi ka bhala hogya hota murkh aadmi….

  3. HE IS THE BRAND..MOST TRUSTED NAME AMONG EDUCATED MASSES. BY ATTENDING HIS SINGLE CLASS MY CALCULATIVE SPEED HAS INCREASED DRASTICALLY. SIR IS UNMATCHED..SINCE I HAVE HEARD HIS NAME FIRST TIME IN MY 10TH STANDARD. RARE TRAINER WHICH WE ENCOUNTER IS A LIFETIME ACHIEVER..ONCE A TOPPER..ALWAYS A TOPPER..HE SHOULD BE A NOMINATED MEMBER OF RAJYA SABHA FOR HIS EXCEPTIONAL WORK TOWARD SOCIETY..OR SOME COMMITTEE SHOULD BE FORMED UNDER HIS NAME–WHICH WE COULD READ IN GENERAL STUDIES..LIKE ARUN SHARMA COMMITTEE. RESPECT AND REGARDS..

  4. I attended his classes at Vajiram and Ravi in Delhi for CSAT.
    With due respect to his excellence, his way of teaching is very boring.

  5. He is mixing his lies with his selective honesty and truth …. It is totally false that he cracked CAT 18times ….with 99

  6. I found this is the best josh talks video for me… I will create a change in my life …I will become a successful person…it's just a sign …I will look behind this comment after getting my success.

  7. We have heard so many stories of people who were not good at school. Please bring someone who was a topper at school but did something extraordinary or different in his life.

  8. Once upon a time when I was topper of my class but now everything has changed .
    Once priyanka Chopra said in her interview that success is not a destination ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  9. 1) fill the vacuum of CHALLENGE

    2) fill the vacuum of EXCELLENCE

    3) fill the vacuum of LEARNING

    4) fill the vacuum of DOING

  10. I don't think so … Like really?? Is it really matters .. I mean sblog toppers nhi hote hain.. I've heard your name earlier. For some people u r like god nd it may b true but sir please put a little bit of motivation in ur speech. Everyone is not topper neither rich.

  11. No offences sir but I had made an image of "the arun sharma" as in how he looks but your looks are not like that image… LOL
    by the way great motivational words … But I think what hinders us most in achieving some thing is our personnel relationships liabilities …
    A role of a "brother "sister "father" husband "son "wife "etc etc I think that's where everybody let's it go

  12. Am I the only one who didn't listen to him and read comments๐Ÿ˜‘ and then realised that it was a motivational kind of video not a song and needed attention๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘

  13. Truly ,sir ur books are a knowledge bank for everyone not just for cracking exam but for knowledge also.

  14. I also scored 80% in class 10 and 84% in class 12 but the problem with me is i lack confidence and grt scared thinking 2 lakhs are giving exam how can i compete with them for 5000 seats

  15. Is arun sharma written any cat exam? Then how do yu tell this?

    Motivation speech is easy.. being studying is difficult

  16. Arun sharma 2 second category mai 81 % 82% vale log nahi ate

    50 % to 70 % vale ate jinko iims mai admison nahi milta agar 99.99 mila cat mai toh bhi

  17. He has written a brilliant book named Quantative Aptitude by Arun Sharma.
    Every chapter has 3 level of difficulty. If you solve only questions of first level difficulty by yourself then you can surely solve every math question of SSC CGL or other bank exams.Surely means surely..100 percent. I have tried it myself. I started from Averages and Ratio and Prop. I solved all of the previous questionsof SSC CGL tier 1 and tier 2.
    The 2nd and 3rd level requires thinking, demands making of a virtual playground where you need to deduce the logics from question and jot down your way to the answer. That is what cat demands.

  18. I am committing this. I will clear CAT 2021 with 99.99 percentile. IIM-Ahemdabad I am coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Arun sir first of all a very good day.
    Sir I want to ask you that which book I have studie to crack cat entrance exam ?
    Sir pls can you give the name of the book..

  20. You are a legend sir๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.. Your books are appropriate guide for me.. After hearing this session I feel too much motivated and devoted towards my forwarding exams..

  21. This is temporary motivation burst , it will burst like a bubble, don't get exited , this is not smart as he looks, he never crossed 200 out of 300 marks , many young kids of 21 have crossed this score , this video for weak people ,who struggle , people who toped never come to this platform and boost that they will score 99 percentile , just grow with out making noise , this is all like bubble , this motivation videos , these all for loosers who always search for some motivation from out side , not from inside, bla bla bla

  22. It solve my doubt that I have that from 4-5 days that I clear cat exam or not bcz I always listen that a topper student can do it not others .it helps me to motivate me that I can do it also. Thank you sir thank you…
