Akshay: What are 3 learnings which have attributed to your Success?
Dream Big: It’s very intimidating to dream big but once you dream big I think everything falls in place and things start happening in the long term not immediately.
It took me 10 years to reach the position I am today, but definitely big dreams help.
Discipline: Being disinclined and being stick to a routine and do it every day. I wake up at 6 every day, I do one video every day, I write1000 words every day and once you do this consistently for a long period of time, you will be able to eventually find success in the long term.
Choose Your Life Partner Very Carefully: Because that means whether your life is a success or a failure.
I have seen so many people who have a lot of potential but they are getting distracted by a lot of personal issues they have in their life.
So, you really need to take a clear stand on that and handle it very intelligently and put your career more as a priority than a relationship because if you succeed in your career then relationships will automatically come.
Akshay: Where do you see blogging and digital marketing career in the future.
Digital Deepak: I think it’s getting tougher but it’s also good because if the competition is increasing then it means that the market is also growing.
But at the same time if you are consistent and if you are long term then you will succeed.
