To have the vision to attain a certain goal in life is one thing, but to spare no effort, go under the grind, make tough choices and face the challenges head-on to turn those visions into a beautiful reality is a different thing altogether. To belong to the latter category, individuals need to do the unusual and choose to relentlessly move ahead on their paths to reach their definition of success in their chosen careers. Being able to do that in an industry as competitive as hospitality has proved to be even more challenging and demanding; however, individuals like Abhi Shetty prove that determination and pure passion for something can help people attain what seems impossible to achieve.
