The Hindu B.L. Club Talk on ‘Reaching greater heights in Life’ on the premises of V.R. Siddhartha Engineering College
Looking for opportunities where some might think there existed no scope for doing a business, was the sign of positive thinking and display of self-confidence.
Making these observations as part of his State Bank Of Hyderabad-sponsored The Hindu B.L. Club Talk on ‘Reaching greater heights in Life’ on the premises of V.R. Siddhartha Engineering College on Tuesday, VIMHANS Director and Psychiatrist Vishal Indla gave the example of Olympian Derek Redmond, who had belief in completing the race despite a hamstring injury, which led to opening of several new opportunities for him.
So impressed were the students of the Department of Business Management with Dr. Vishal Indla’s presentation that girls and boys showered hundreds of questions on him and clarified several of their doubts.
Some even tried to get a certification from the doctor on their thought process by trying to know if it was positive.
Explaining lucidly all the concepts with examples based on situations students in their late teens could related to, Dr. Indla was an instant hit among them. A couple of video clippings were very impressive and while making a point to students that they should never start with diffidence, he wanted them to accept failures as they cherish success.
Committing to a relationship at a very young age was not wise as most cannot take a matured decision, but being friendly with a person of opposite sex need not always lead to a marital relationship, he explained.
Emotional quotient was one that determined the success of any person and not the Intelligence Quotient as the IQ gets fixed between the ages 16 and 18, while the emotional quotient could be improved as the age progresses, the doctor said.
College principal K. Mohan Rao gave special address, while Bank DGM K.G. Venkatesh gave an outline of essential aspects of reaching to the top in one’s life. The Department Head L. Anuradha and faculty member NCS Rao also spoke at the programme.
