We have brought you some life lesson points from Prasoon Joshi.
Between confusion and living
It’s hard for people who have their passion and also they knew that to achieve their passion, it’s very important to earn a living first, especially when you belong to a middle class family. As Prasoon Joshi says that he hails from a middle class family and to took up his passion, he has taken a career with an advertising agency. Prasoon says he learnt that it is very important to be confused in life because it is an indicator of your state of mind just before clarity emerges.
The right path
Choosing the very right path is as essential as your life and Prasoon Joshi gives it much importance. People around you can help in sharpening your skills but you have to listen to your own calling. It should be your personal quest without any shortcuts and after that you can look for the right organization to pursue what you love.
Importance of the Journey
Always give importance to your own journey without caring about destination and tags. Prasoon remembers when in school that he was much after his creativity of poetry rather than the studies and till date, he is still proud of his journey and decisions.
Keep no single role model because in life you many meet various persons who are going to inspire you in one or the other way. People find inspiration in different ways and sharing various experiences will help you to grow more.
Your Journey will count. The targets you have made for yourself or the set-up goals which you have determined should always be top priority. It’s always the journey that has been biafricated into your made goals and targets.
A special thanks to Women’s
Prasoon Joshi believes that every women in your life should be respected with the respect she deserve as they are the one who encourages you to achieve high things in life. Prasoon Joshi’s wife had supported him throughout his career.
The power of dreams and to dream big is something everyone needs to learn. If your idea does not have social significance and relevance to human life, there are less chances of its survival. One should get into a business only if it is a dream which he/she wants to live.
Scaling up the minds

Little bit of yourself
Prasoon Joshi familiarise himself with the project at hand and its objective, talk about its possibilities and then let things come to him. That is how you give a little bit of yourself to everything you do.
