Boost your self-con­fi­dence

If you are men­tally strong, you have the power, con­vic­tion and en­ergy to do any­thing. You can achieve any­thing and there are no doubts in your mind. I had gone to Amar­nath in 2015 when an army of­fi­cial in­spired me to take up moun­taineer­ing. That touched my heart and within two years, I rose to the chal­lenge.

Be dif­fer­ent and stand out

We all have some abil­ity and tal­ent in us but we don’t in­vest suf­fi­cient time in iden­ti­fy­ing that tal­ent and some­times don’t know how to iden­tify our strengths. We fo­cus more on oth­ers. Self-ex­am­ine and shift your at­ten­tion to your­self.

Stop tak­ing fail­ure to heart

You need some amount of crit­i­cism be­cause that pushes you to do move for­ward and meet your tar­get. For in­stance, when I was climb­ing Ever­est, I saw a dead body on way and was go­ing to give up. But that pushed me to go fur­ther. Re­mem­ber, crit­i­cism is not al­ways neg­a­tive; some­times it is pos­i­tive. So, trust your­self and suc­cess will be yours.
