“If you are searching for that one person who will change your life, take a look at the mirror”
This is what this gentleman says when people ask him about his journey of making it possible. And this may not sound new as we already know a lot of wonder stories about people who became hero from zero; trust me, this guy is an exception. He didn’t just leave his job but also left his undergraduate course from DU in the betwixt and between of his personal life.
So, who is this I-m-possible man?
He is none other than the motivational guru and renowned speaker, Mr. Sandeep Maheshwari.
He is one of us — Each one of us.
As he started-off as a middle-class guy, struggled, failed and didn’t know where life was taking him. He was not succeeding in whatever he was trying — completing his UG, starting a business or writing a book. (Sounds so pertinent, isn’t it?)
But, do you guys know what made him different from others? That was his undying zeal to become something, his never to give up attitude and persistence to learn and grow.
Like any other middle class guy, he has seen it all — the family’s Aluminum business shut down, opted out from the third-year of his undergraduate and failed terribly to be a model at the age of 19.
But, surpassing, he never gave up rather he learnt to find solutions to things come what may.
For instance, He was emotionally & mentally swayed to see the kind of harassments models go through. So, to help upcoming models and with a mission to cut down some amount of exploitation, he decided to learn a 2-week photography course and moved ahead to change the scenario for the aspiring models.
Therefore, he started his very first portfolio company by the name of Mash Audio Visuals Pvt. Ltd. Since then, he has helped so many models to be one, without facing ouch (you know what we mean).
But guys, this is just one instance out of myriads of his never ending saga of “NOT GIVING UP.” As he had a vision to see things beyond targets, he believed that it is really important to resign your comfort zone and do something out of the box.
Hence, in 2006, he started his ambitious project — Imagesbazaar — being the counselor, tele-caller and photographer all by himself. But, it was that time, during its start-up. But, we can all see where he has taken his dream project in these 10 years of span; not only his company has the largest collection of Indian images around the globe but it also has thousands of clients crossing 45 countries.
And then with all his meekness he says, “All my life I have been a failure.” Nobody agrees or will ever agree to your grounded modesty Mr. Maheshwari because you are the revenant for a lot of youth of our country. ☺
Moreover, he’s been adored and loved because of the way he inspire the generation. He is just not a successful entrepreneur but a mentor for thousands of people (especially youth) of our country.
But, to become one Sandeep Maheshwari, you gotta believe and apply his philosophies in your life like, “To never fear of failures” and “Naa Bhaagna hai naa rukna hai, bas chalte jaana hai.”
The whole point to share his story is to make you believe that, Impossible itself says, I M POSSIBLE. So, never give up, never say never and never fear of your failures because everything is possible with a positive mission and vision.
But, make sure to never act without thinking and think without acting — success will be yours!!!
