So that is the meaning of the phrase - Aim for the moon, if you miss, you may hit a star. This is a motivational quote that encourages people to set their sights high and take risks in pursuit of their goals. The idea behind the quote is that even if you fall short of your ultimate objective, you will likely still achieve something significant and worthwhile during the pursuit of a big ambitious goal.

 

The quote can be interpreted in different ways, but generally, it emphasizes the importance of aiming high and not being afraid to fail. It suggests that setting ambitious goals can inspire you to work harder and push yourself further than you might otherwise.

Dhiru Bhai Ambani, Reliance Founder and creator of Equity Cult
As is well known, Reliance is India’s largest private sector company. Reliance is the first Indian company to feature in the Forbes 500 list. Dhirubhai Ambani was the most enterprising Indian entrepreneur. His life journey is reminiscent of the rags to riches story.

His father was a school teacher. Dhirubhai Ambani started his entrepreneurial career by selling “bhajias” to pilgrims in Mount Girnar over the weekends. After doing his matriculation at the age of 16, Dhirubhai moved to Aden, Yemen. He worked there as a gas-station attendant, and as a clerk in an oil company. He returned to India in 1958 with Rs 50,000 and set up a textile trading company. In 1992, Reliance became the first Indian company to raise money in global markets, its high credit-taking in international markets limited only by India’s sovereign rating.

Karsanbhai Patel – Beating MNCs in their own game
The ‘Nirma’ success story of how an Indian Entrepreneur aimed big and took on the big MNCs and rewrote the rules of business. It was in 1969 that Dr. Karsanbhai Patel started Nirma and went on to create a whole new segment in the Indian domestic detergent market. During that time the domestic detergent market only had the premium segment and there were very few companies, mainly the MNCs, which were into this business. Karsanbhai Patel used to make detergent powder in the backyard of his house in Ahmedabad and then carry out door to door selling of his hand made product. He gave a money-back guarantee with every pack that was sold. Karsanbhai Patel managed to offer his detergent powder for Rs. 3 per kg when the cheapest detergent at that time was 4 times this price and so he was able to successfully target the middle and lower-middle-income segment. Rest was history! The company that was started in 1969 with just one, today employs around 14 thousand people and has a turnover of more than $ 500 million. In 2004 Nirma’s annual sales were as high as 800000 tonnes.
