6 Success= (Intelligence) × (Hard work) × (Attitude) 6 Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It is quite Simple. Double your rate of failure. -Thomas Watson How to Top with Minimum Study © Pravin Kolhe. PPT downloaded from

7 7 Success is not an accident; it is result of positive attitude and hard work. To achieve a unit degree of success you must have all there ingredients. i.e. Intelligence, Hard work and Attitude. Absence of any one of them will not result in success. (Remember it is product term) Fall in one ingredient can be compensated by increase in other. e.g.: limitation of intelligence can be overcome by hard work.

15 Success= (Intelligence) x (Hard work) x (Attitude) ×(1+ Smartness) 15 Lets add one more term in above formula for success i.e. (1+Smartness). If you are one unit smart, your success will be twice, on the other hand, if you are not smart, then success will be one unit. Higher the smartness, higher will be the success. Success is highly dependent on smartness. How to Top with Minimum Study © Pravin Kolhe. PPT downloaded from
