Is it because of looks, mental ability etc but not only based on theories. According to him life can be seen as 2 simultaneous equations where the 1st one says how you can be happy with the little less you have and the other one how you can retain happiness with the more you have.
Next his speech emphasised on 3P's which according to him would be followed in life to attain success. The 3P's were the following:
* Purpose - It leads a deep questioning of why like why I am doing this, why I have to reach my goals. Purpose alters the functions of our activities.
* Possibility - It is about imagining, aspiring.
* Productivity – It's on the discriminating mind, where mind is unleashed.

He ended his speech by asking the audience to reach heights through hard work and inspired by giving his life example of how he became what he is now.
