Career Growth Stories

  • I would like to tell this to anyone who is trying to achieve something they want to motivate themselves and accept reality. One cannot grow until he is willing to grow, I was at Amazon for two years, and I wanted to take this course a year prior, so once I completed this course, I thought, why did I wait for one extra year, so basically the sooner you realize this, the better it is. You need to take action rather than just think about it.
