Pune, December 12, 2020: You are a product of your own, you are no different. What you think you become. It totally depends on where you spend your time and energy, if you spend it on positive things you will get the benefits out of it and if you spend it on negative things you will suffer said Dr Kiran Bedi Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry during an online lecture on Thursday. The topic of her lecture was “Perseverance- Instances from My Life”. The lecture was conducted as a part of the Symbiosis Golden Jubilee Lecture Series.

Speaking at the lecture Dr Bedi gave valuable advice to the students on how to attain success with your own actions. During her speech she said, we all get 24 hours in a day and it’s in our hand where to spend those in heaven or hell. Make your choices every day take an example of Sun who never fails to lighten our day.

Pick up a profession which makes you happy. Your profession should be an extension of your own. Live life on your own terms, always be sure of yourself and build that confidence within you. Ask yourself what kind of life you want to live? It should be of self-reliance, self-dependence in the abundance of hard work, self-core, Dr Bedi added further in her speech.

Dr Bedi gave emphasis on health she said; never forget to keep you healthy. If you are healthy then only you will be able to perform and do things in life. Health should be your first priority.

Always have a positive perspective on everything in life. Don’t look at anything as a hurdle, look at it as an opportunity. If everything is going good all the time then something is wrong. Always search for areas of improvement.
