Mr Alpesh Shah said, “In the rapidly changing modern and volatile world, arming yourself with appropriate knowledge and skill set is the best thing you can do. The Flagship ten learnings of my life are: Life is a marathon, and you must keep pushing yourself. Don’t be in a hurry.  Professional sports personalities like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Jocovich, Sachin Tendulkar, Serena Williams, Leander Peas and Meetali Raaj enjoyed the peak of their career for an extended period of time because they were committed to performing consistently. Run your own race, don’t be influenced by anyone or anything. Work hard; there is no substitute for hard work. Focus on your strengths, not on your weaknesses. Accept the change as it is the only constant. Whatever you do, do it wholeheartedly with commitment. Invest in your friends; they will stay with you forever. There are no shortcuts in life; live the values. Don’t complain, and make the Flagship best of what you have. Define your purpose in life and a bold one which will lead you to new horizons of success in life. I would conclude with a message that to be bold,  aspire for great things and make the most of your two years at IIM Udaipur.”
