Karthik Kanagasabapathy delivers a motivational and inspiring being successful keynote that presents some unconventional insights. He begins his speech by arguing that enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success; if you want to be successful in any field, you have to be enthusiastic about it.

He encourages his audience to not be a hostage of what is expected of them and to instead pursue their dreams and goals enthusiastically.

Next he discusses the importance of competition. He believes that there are two types of competition -- the one where you drag your component down and the kind where you rise above your competitor. People usually see competition as dragging someone down and as a result, it has adopted a negative reputation. Many schools promote anti-competition by not keeping scores in sports or doing things for "fun." He believes this puts students at a disadvantage because they miss out on learning how to expend maximal effort, how to rise above opponents and how to be channel determination.

His being successful keynote discusses competition, enthusiasm and perfection in a refreshing and enlightening way, offering lessons to people of all ages. Stats for The Power of Enthusiasm Trending: Older & Buzzing
