Few of B schools and even new IIMs have replaced GD with WAT hence, Written Ability Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication skills and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process.
Develop points for discussion and read WAT topic: A winner never stops trying
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, and try again”. This is the mantra that winners follow and preach.
People do not become successful overnight; they learn from their mistakes and work hard to reach their goals. In fact, the only difference between a winner and a loser is that a winner plays till he wins, whereas a loser loses hope once he fails.
Bill Gates, the chairman of Microsoft, was not successful right from the beginning. In fact, there was a time in Bill Gates’ life when he could not make any money. Bill Gates’ first company, Traf-O-Data, which produced traffic counters, failed miserably.
However, that did not stop Bill Gates from trying again and setting up another venture. If Bill Gates had lost hope with the failure of Traf-O-Data, our lives would not be as comfortable as they are today.
Thomas Edison, the inventor of the incandescent light, was not successful in his first attempt. Despite his repeated failures, he did not give up – instead, he learnt from his mistakes and it was after his 10,000th attempt that he emerged a winner.
However, when reporters questioned him on his repeated failures, he denied that he had failed. In fact his response was, “I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. This is exactly the spirit and level of perseverance that winners possess.
Winners are respected in society and treated as role models. We grew up listening to the stories of famous people, who despite having faced challenges, overcame their obstacles and emerged winners.
Famous personalities like Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rahul Dravid, and Narayana Murthy failed several times in their lives but they rose to the challenge and faced the world with courage and determination.
Winners are present in all spheres of life and they teach us one simple thing – never stop trying.
