My Dear Students! V S VADIVEL CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT

By Mr. V.S. Vadivel, FCA, ACS, Chartered Accountant.

In these columns, Mr V. S. Vadivel, FCA, ACS, Chartered Accountant, brings out some golden words of guidance for the benefit of all students in India who are pursuing the educational courses at professional levels like CA/CS and CWA.

Success: Where is it? BY V S VADIVEL CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT

By V.S.Vadivel, FCA, ACS, Chartered Accountant

A young man once asked Socrates, the greatest philosopher of olden days, the secret to success.  Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning.  They met.  Socrates asked the young man to walk with him towards the river.  When the water got up to their necks, Socrates took the young man by surprise and dunked him under the water.  The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and held him down.  When the boy started turning blue, Socrates raised the boy’s head out of the water.  The first thing the young man did was to gasp and take a deep breath of air.  Socrates asked, “What did you want the most when you were under water?”  The boy replied, “Air”.  Socrates said, “That is the secret to success.  When you want success as intensely as you wanted air underwater then you will have it”.  There is no other secret.

Thus, a burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishments in human life.  Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire can not produce great results.  Similarly, only a purposeful and sincere preparation for the exam will prove fruitful in getting success in CA/CS/CWA exams.

Remember friends, sincerity is a must in any fruitful activity and more so in relation to a professional examination.  Mere paper plans will not carry us to the ultimate goal of success.  It is the combination of actual work and proper plan that will lead you to the world of success.  Only steel like determination, devotion, dedication and discipline can help you to go ahead with your goal and win the race.

Believe me; success does not depend on mere chance and luck.  One has to really strive for success as ‘nothing succeeds like success’ as rightly said by Alexandre Dumas, one of the most widely read French authors in history, best known for his historical novels of high adventure.

Always keep in your mind the golden words of Edison; ‘Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration’. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb.

Don’t forget to remember. “Only hard work is the mother of all good luck”.  Friends, don’t put your life on mere chance and luck.  Mind you, fluke may help once in a while but it will not come to your rescue again and again.

Most crackpots simply keep waiting for a jackpot.  But that ‘wait and wait’ strategy rarely brings success.  The common man seeks security whereas the uncommon man seeks opportunity.  Believe me; Success is not an accident.   It is the end-result of your positive attitude and your attitude is always a choice.  Hence success is a matter of choice and not chance.

Further, success is no mystery.  It is simply the result of consistently applying some basic principles.  The reverse is just as true; Failure is simply a result of making a few mistakes repeatedly. This might sound too simplistic but the fact is that most truths are very simple.

Success and happiness go hand in hand, Success is getting what you want and happiness is wanting what you get.  However, existence alone is not success! It is a lot more!

“Do more than exist, live.

Do more than touch, feel.

Do more than look, observe.

Do more than read, absorb.

Do more than hear, listen.

Do more than listen, understand.

Do more than think, ponder.

Do more than talk, say something”.

 -          John H. Rhoades

 

Based on the above guidelines of golden nature,

"Do more than study, pass.

Do more than pass, excel".

 This is the ‘success sutra’ for any student at professional level.
