1. Dhirubhai Ambani
My first inspiration is Dhirubhai Ambani. One of the famous and richest Indian businessmen who is an inspiration for everyone.
Dhirubhai was born in Gujarat on December 28, 1932. His father was a school teacher. He started his business career by selling snacks to pilgrims over the weekends.
After he completed his matriculation he moved to Aden, Yemen. He was just 16 and he worked as a gas station attendant and as a clerk in an oil company.
In 1958 he came back to India with Rs 50,000 and went on to start a textile trading company.
His two sons Mukesh and Anil helped him in building India’s largest private sector company called Reliance India Limited. At that time his core business was petrochemicals and later on diversified into telecommunications, energy, retail, textiles etc.
In 1992, reliance became first private company to raise money in the global markets. Reliance was included in the Forbes 500 list. Dhirubhai Ambani died in the year 2002 leaving his entire company on the shoulders of his two sons.
Today reliance worth more than $50 billion company combining wealth of two sons.
Dhiru Bhai is a true inspiration for all of us because he started from a very humble background.
2. Govind Jaiswal
My second motivational story is about a man who is not known to general public. No one knows about them because he is not a celebrity or a guy who is good looking.
His name is Govind Jaiswal. He ranked 48 among 474 successful candidates in the first attempt of civil service exam. His dream of becoming an IAS officer has come true.
Govind is just 24 years old, son of a rickshaw puller who hails from Varanasi. He lived in a poor locality with no basic facilities. He studied with cotton stuffed in his ears to lessen the noise printing machines and generators going inside his years.
His sick father has to sell small plot of land to give Govind Rs 40,000/- so that he could go to Delhi and study there in a better environment.
After hard work of years and years he finally succeeded and his dream of becoming an IAS officer came true. He gave this news to his father and three sisters, they burst into tears.
The happiness on their face cannot be expressed in words.
Govind Jaiswal son of a rickshaw puller became an IAS officer is an evergreen inspirational story. Students who are looking for Sarkari Naukri must inspire from this man.
3. Rajesh Saraiya
Rajesh Saraiya is first Dalit billionaire. He comes from an underprivileged background.
He was born in a middle class family in Dehradun. He completed his aeronautical engineering from a Russian university.
Now he lives in Ukraine and runs a multibillion dollar company called SteelMont Pvt Ltd.
Today the turnover of his company is around Rs 200 Crore. Although Rajesh Saraiya came from a middle class family but he is an inspiration for people coming from Dalit background.
He is the only Dalit with over $1 Billion dollar in his fortune. If he can make it then even you can make it too.
He said “People have to change from inside. They have to change their ideology, their mentality and look around the world for what is happening. There are so many opportunities,”
4. Kiran Bedi
The fourth inspirational story is about Kiran Bedi. She is now quite a celebrity and we all know about her.
Kiran Bedi was the first Indian woman to join the Indian Police Services. She was born on June 9, 1949 at Amritsar.
