To be a successful entrepreneur he/she must not bother about external circumstances and consequences .They must believe in themselves and take lead for the mission they think they want to achieve. People who think out of the box make their own way rather than following someone else’s route. An entrepreneur must be highly optimistic about the goal he decides. He should be aware of his strength and weaknesses. Mr.Rohit Lalwani emphasized that Entrepreneurs should never get disappointed due to failures, on the contrary they should make failure as their best friend .Failure is the best teacher .However it is never imbibed like a success. He also illustrated incidences of failures in day to day life in the corporate world. Then he revealed that as one faces failure with courage, failure becomes stepping stone to the success.
