Dream Big

In the ’90s, Mukesh who was in his 30’sdecided to become the largest manufacturer of polyester fiber and yarn in the world, and he really did it. RIL is the largest manufacturer of polyester fiber and yarn in the world and beats the traditional manufacturers from South Korea and Taiwan, who dominated the market in the ’70s. Many men of his kind will have settled for less because he has crumbs to inherit. Big Dreams are terrifying, especially because nobody can see tomorrow. “What if it doesn’t work?” is what we were trained to ask. “What if it works?” is the question successful people ask. Like Mukesh, many people were born into wealth but unlike him, many people who were born rich are satisfied with what they can inherit from their parents. None of us will be happy for having much gold. You’ll only be happy with the process that creates the gold. 

Trust all, But Don’t Depend On Anybody

However, he still believes that one should be completely independent when it comes to dreaming pursuit without depending on anyone. “The organizational architecture is really that a centipede walks on hundred legs and one or two don’t count. So, if I lose one or two legs, the process will go on, the organization will go on, the growth will go on.” Mukesh Ambani Mukesh Ambani said that if you want to learn something, learn from yourself, that’s the best option to learn.
