It lies with in you
The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.
Let me tell you a story. There was a girl intelligent but not so hardworking, well she used to manage good academics in her college but was not so sincere with her studies,lets call her Miss A.One day Miss A decides to write CAT & open door for a good b school for herself.She started preparing seriously for her exams,gave up all fun & delights. Someday she would study so hard, other days she would enjoy & chill alot. In short we can say she was not punctual.But then she worked hard, wrote CAT, & then when results came, got disappointed & sad.
Now she had 3 options with her…Can you guess?
I guess some of you being engineer will apply concept of probability & say to prepare again or not to prepare again.
But wait be realistic, think from present day perspective
Her choices were
1.To drop a year & prepare for CAT
2.To join the company in which she is campus placed
3.To join the company & prepare for CAT parallel.
This story seems similar to yours, Isn’t it? So what choice are you going to make?
what do you think, what should be her decision?
Well let me tell you she opted for 3rd option but why?
Because sometimes in life you need to make decisions, that are tough which can change your life, Only you have the power to make or ruin yourself.No one can make a choice for you.She went ahead with 2nd option because she had a flame within her, a hunger to prove herself to achieve her dreams, she knew what were her mistakes, How to do things differently so that success can be achieved, dreams can be fulfilled.
But then it is important to be practical, you cannot survive without a job(once you pass out from college your parents starts looking up to you,even society looks at you differently & more importantly the thought of being jobless troubles & frustrates you.) & Trust me its not difficult to manage your preparation while working.
It requires right mix of ingredients.
It needs a changed mindset; an open mind to grab untapped opportunities; to realize dreams.
It is not a matter of ability. It is a matter of self belief.
Hard work & Punctuality pays at the end, as they paid in her case, surely they will pay in your case also.
We just need to realize the importance of magical line “The only time you fail is when you fall down and stay down”
Its our thinking which makes good or bad outcomes, so be focused & motivated keep working till your goal is not achieved.
Success will be surely within your reach.
All the best, keep working 🙂
