He advised the participants to celebrate the success but at the same time learn from the failures. He further highlighted the life lesson in these competitions, where you can have all the talent in the world, but without the hard work to sharpen these skills, the talent is inadequate. The efforts to win have to start much before the actual competition, because hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard!!
