When people asked her to share her success story. She started with the “Power of Dream”. She said that until and unless you don’t dream big, how could you expect big things happen in your life. Your dream should be biggest so that even if you fail in achieving that big thing, your failure would be bigger than the other's success.
"Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, You'll land among the stars"
Sharing her experience, she continues that she always dream to be AIR - 1. In CA IPCC, she achieved her AIR - 1 then she targets to maintain the same position and work hard to attain AIR - 1 in CS Executive, which she did. Repeating such thing in CA Final, she becomes the CA Final topper in Nov 2016. Further, she targets CS Professional but could not achieve AIR - 1, she placed her name at AIR - 3 position which is also a big thing. Only 2 candidates are higher than her, and she is better than the rest of all who appeared in that examination.
Which means if your dream is big, nobody can stop you from becoming the topper.
“Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep,” said APJ Abdul Kalam.
Dreaming Big is the secret CA topper success mantra which you must think about.
Stop Taking Advice from Every Random Person -
Have you seen any topper taking advice from you? Why? When you can ask every random person How to study then why they don’t? Why they listen only and only to their mentors?
Because they knew that advice won’t work. What actually works is your effort, your hard work, your dedication and your belief in yourself.
The best person who can guide you in a correct manner is you only. Instead of taking advice, just ask yourself “How much effort I need to put?”, “What is my ability?”, “Where I am good, where I am bad?”, “How many times, I need to revise the course?” etc.
Stop asking people how many hours you used to study in CA. They may need only 10 hours, while you may need 14 hours. It all depends on one’s capability. So, stop running here and there and learn to believe in yourself. Find only one mentor who can guide you towards a right direction. He may be your teacher, your parent, your friend or XYZ. Just find only one right person.
Stop Making Excuses -
Every time toppers make us understand that our excuses are the reason for our failure. We always use to support our failure with a number of excuses. Like “Ohh yrr… He doesn’t have to do any household work, how lucky!! Get so much time to focus on his studies”. Other behave like “Ohh yrr, he is living with his family, get all the facilities... How lucky he is!!
You are not understanding, that excuses are not giving you any success neither they can stop the entire world from moving ahead. Only you and you will suffer from these excuses. Your spirit should be “Either hook or cook, nobody can stop us from getting rank in CA Exams.
“Students, please... Stop Making Excuses…. Dream Big and work hard to achieve them.”
Proper Planning -
Every single student appearing in CA Exams work hard to get pass but very fewer candidates clear it and among such, very few people get All India Rank. So what is special in their preparation which made them All India Ranker? Nothing special students!! The reason behind their success is proper planning. Whatever they do, do it with a proper plan.
They do not count the number of hours while studying, they set goals for each month, each week, each day, each hour and each minute as well. They plan course in such a manner that last 2 months could be devoted only for revision and attempting past attempt or mock test papers.
Take Articleship Seriously -
Often students think that Articleship is burdensome and create many obstacles in clearing CA Final. However, one has to understand that Articleship is actually a great rescue which helps in clearing CA Final. Papers like DT, IDT, Audit, Law so much requires practical knowledge besides theoretical aspects and the only one can answer such questions properly who has taken Articleship seriously.
Kruti B Shah topper of CA Final May 2013, when asked about her articleship, she said that she loved her articleship as this gave a practical knowledge, like how actually the things happen in real life and studying that one was a great fun. She concluded her statement that everyone should take his/her articleship very seriously.
Never Ignore ICAI Material -
May 2017 CA Final All India First Rank holder “Raj Paresh Sheth” when asked about the contribution of ICAI towards his success. He thanks to the Material provided by the ICAI. The Study Material, Practice Manual and Revision Test Papers given by Institute were always his first point of reference. After completing these materials, he barely refers any coaching or other reference material.
He also feels bad for the students who skip the Pronouncements in respect of Accounting Standards and Standards of Accounting issued by the ICAI. He considers necessary to practice the illustrations from such pronouncements.
And not just Raj Paresh, every rank holder suggested candidates keep the ICAI Material on priority.
