Satheesh Gopalan is a management consultant from Ottawa, Canada. At a young age, he wanted to be in the world of cinema, but ended up in the world of consulting. Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Nature suffers nothing to remain in her kingdoms that cannot help itself. Society is barbarous until every industrious man gets his living without dishonest customs”. On the other hand, a man is happy and successful only if he is doing what he wants to do in his life. How can we lead a successful life and leave a legacy behind us when we are fortunate to live in a golden age that our ancestors could only dreamed of? Answer is in Mark Twain’s words. “Really great people make you feel that you, too, can become great.” Three years ago, Satheesh decided to meet with many great minds of our age to find out their secret of success. If you believe George Eliot’s words “It’s never too late to be what you might have been”, this documentary will inspire you to take the next step to be the man you want to be.
