Choosing a life partner is definitely important, and how you choose yours is a BIG decision to make in your entire life. The choice of a life partner can be a crucial one, but did you know that there is a relation between your success and your partner? Yeah, you read it right. And this was explained by Shikha Sharma, who was a special guest at IIM-A convocation.
She delivered an inspiring speech, and instead of talking about the career of the students, she chose to speak about something that is unconventional. One of the most renowned woman bankers in India, Shikha Sharma, who is the current MD and CEO of Axis Bank gave some advice to the graduating batch of IIM-Ahmedabad.
It was about choosing your life partner. She said –
‘You are poised to enter the real world tomorrow. The choices you make there will define who you become. The choice of a life partner is the single most important choice you’ll make in your life, much of the joy you derive in your life, does hark back to who you choose to share this journey with. A lot of what I am today are a function of the life partner I was lucky to have alongside my journey. Sanjay and I, both alumni of IIM-A, are very different people. But we are not all that different either. We have very similar core values… As professionals…the principles that make for lasting relationships with your team or your organisation aren’t terribly different from those that make lasting personal relationships.’
