Choosing a mentor isn’t easy. Choose wise and you choose success. – Sujit Lalwani
The above saying of Mr. Sujit Lalwani holds true in the life of every people. We don’t learn all the skills, the lessons of the life by birth. Rather, we achieve them on the way of our journey of life. We get involved in several aspects of our life and experience through it while some may learn through the mentor. One should have a support, a mentor in his/her life, the one who guides and suggests so as to learn, experience and to build the confidence to do something. Mr. Sujit Lalwani, an Indian entrepreneur and also an author is an eloquent speaker.

After sometime, he was able to defeat his brother. He thus believes in mentoring, that made him the best one.
