PUTRAJAYA: The pursuit to success takes commitment, dedication and sometimes failure, said Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Deputy Prime Minister however said that one should not let failure cast doubts to what can be achieved in the future.

"The only limit in realising our dreams is if we doubt ourselves. Successful people demonstrate their success with their commitment to learning," said Dr Ahmad Zahid.

Dr Ahmad Zahid said at the Asia HRD Awards 2017 gala dinner on Tuesday that individuals who are inspired by the success of others would push their performance and set new standards and benchmarks.

He cited the success of sprinter Khairul Hafiz Jantan who broke the country's oldest track record recently.

"When others thought it could not be done, Khairul showed us that yes, it can be done," said Dr. Ahmad Zahid.

The event honoured the Maldives Government and its President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gaydon with the Asia HRD Lifetime Achievement award for their resilience and continued development of the nation.

Five individuals including Higher Education director-general Datin Paduka Dr Siti Hamisah Tapsir and Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia board of directors chairman Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak were honoured for their contribution to society.

Others honoured were former Philippines ambassador to Malaysia J. Eduardo Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia vice-chancellor Datuk Seri Prof Dr Noor Azlan Ghazali and India's Sri Balaji Society president Prof (Col) A. Balasundram.

Other categories are contributions to organisations, contributions to the HR community and Movers & Shakers.

The Asia HRD Awards honours individuals and organisations who have impacted or influenced society, organisation and the HR community in the area of people and/or human resources development.
