My Hero

Extracts from this document...


"Only when you dream it you can do it" said a 17 year old boy proudly working in a company in Yemen and my role-model. His name was Shri Dhirubhai Ambani. He started earning money at a very early age and in less than 2 years he was promoted due to his excellence. I find this very fascinating because this shows lots of determination in his work. Despite having a promotion, Dhirubhai returned to India and started a new company called "Reliance", with a capital of only $350. The primary business was to import polyester yarn and export spices. The business was set up in partnership with his second cousin. However, they ended their partnership in a couple of years. His cousin was a cautious trader and did not believe in building yarn inventories, while Dhirubhai was a known risk taker and he considered building inventories, anticipating a price rise, and making profits through that was good for growth. ...read more.


He inspired the Reliance team to do better than the best - not only in India but in the world. Don't you find this man inspiring? In addition, prestigious awards and titles were given to him by national and international organisations. He was acclaimed as the top businessman of the twentieth century and praised for his dynamic and pioneering genius. His success story fired the imagination of the younger generation of Indian entrepreneurs, business leaders and progressive companies. He was an icon for me and them, a role model to be emulated. He was probably the first Indian businessman to recognise the strategic significance of investors and discover the vast untapped potential of the capital markets and use it for the growth and development of industry. He was supremely confident that finance would never be a limitation in executing his projects because, as he said proudly, Indian investors would provide him with the necessary resources. ...read more.


His sterling leadership qualities, remarkable foresight, uncompromising pursuit of excellence, humility, prodigious capacity to motivate and trust people will continue to guide and inspire future generations at Reliance. We are proud and privileged to inherit this invaluable legacy. His life and achievements prove that backed by confidence, courage and conviction, man can achieve the impossible. From a humble beginning, he went on to create an enviable business empire within a span of just 25 years. The Rs.60,000 crore, $13billion Reliance Group is a living testimony to his single-minded dedication and an unrelenting commitment to his goals. Truly, men like Shri Dhirubhai Ambani are rare. They come gifted with the power and the vision to change the destiny of nations, to alter the course of corporate history. They are the empire builders, the stuff that legends are made of. The legend called Shri Dhirubhai Ambani will never die. The man is intelligent, gifted with extraordinary talents and successful. Don't you think he is a legend? His spirit will live on forever. 1 ...read more.
