Everyday you will have new obstacles to fall upon. Important is to pull up the socks again. Tighten up the shoe lace and be determined to pass each hurdle and not give up in the journey of life. It is this awareness of determination that has build up my potential and passion to do something meaningful in my life. Though the situations have made me deviate from my long term goals, but with each failure , success came closer to me as my determination stopped me from loosing hope ever.
I hail from a small town. I was denied admissions for MBA in Mumbai, stating that I might get into the issues of inferiority complex. That was the end of that timid, shy girl. It was a new me growing up. I later completed my MBA and also worked with a Chicago based bank as a Senior Analyst. I feel such comments or acts could actually pull someone down to depression. But, these made me stronger and future ready to face the world.
Working as an Implementation specialist in an IT firm, I realised it was completely not for me. I decided to leave that work at any cost. However, my new company gifted me a challenge of graveyard shifts. My strong will and keen interest in my job helped me not to lose my sanity and stay with them for a long time.
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. That is the way great spiritual giants are produced.” Swami Vivekananda
That is what I believe in. I prefer to give my 100% to one thing rather than taking up a hundred things in my hand and turn out to be nothing. It is easy for anyone to set goals but attaining is a different matter. The attainment of small goals, with the help of my strong determination and will power, has always motivated me for the next and bigger goals.
I treasure the positive mindset of mine. I believe that this beautiful journey of life will not look beautiful to me until I realise its importance by facing the challenges life throws in the form of failures. Life cannot be smooth. But, once determined to do something in life, it is impossible for anyone to pull me back. I take pride in saying that Yes! I possess this treasure of strong determination…
