To har insan ko is, 'thodese' roomani ki 'bahot' jyada jaroorat hoti hai... which in english is called 'A little faith' which keeps us going. It might seem a bit too philosophical, but I dont want you to be bored by giving doses of philosphy, instead I will tell u a real life story of a girl, whose life changed drastically due to a change in her perception towards life.This story is about how a few people at various stages in her life whom she calls 'Angels of my life' transformed her life completely by teaching her the magic of 'believing' or 'keeping faith'.
Because, we all know 'We believe what we percieve' and which ultimately leads to our success or failure.So, here it goes...
There was a girl who lived with her parents, granny and an elder sister in a city.They were a happy family.
Phase I :Childhood :
At the initial stage of her kindergarten and then later school education,she stayed with her parents.They were a happy family and loved each other a lot.She led a life of the most successful student, always a topper and never faced any difficulties.But then suddenly after her schooling, her father decided to keep her away from them for providing her a better quality higher education. So, at the age of 15, she had to stay away from her parents.Her elder sister had already left the house two yrs before when she was 15 and now she was going to stay with her elder sister.
Phase II : Adolescence:
Now, in this phase of her life started the real challenge. Throughout her schooling, she had been a topper, so she had the confidence that she would top in her higher studies as well. But when she saw her first semester results at higher education,she was petrified. She was no where amongst the toppers, instead had got very average marks.
This was her first failure ever, due to which she was completly depressed.And now even her mom was not there physically with her to help her.But then she couldn’t find the reason for it bcoz I had worked really hard even for this exam. Then what was the factor responsible for her failure?? The only reason which made the whole difference was she was away from her mom. Then she realised, it was her mom who always motivated her and taught her to believe that she only would be the topper. Along with hardwork, this motivation and belief her mom sowed in her,made a hell lot of difference.
But unfortunately, she couldn’t bring her mom to the place she lived. But fortunately, she had her elder sister who also stayed with her. She took the place of her mom in this next phase of her life. She motivated her little sis and helped her overcome her emotional dependencies and other limitations.She helped her to convert her failures into success and improved her results to an extent that her little sis could get admission amongst top 10 engineering colleges.From here, her perception towards life began to change and she started understanding her own limitations and strengths.Her perception towards life started changing a bit.But then again, a huge failure was awaiting her...
Phase III : Teenage+ Adulthood:
Now the start of next phase was even more worst, her family members (except mom and sis) and relatives dint have a confidence that she had the ability to complete engineering successfully. So, they tried admitting her in a course she never liked by advising her mom to do so.If her mom and sis dint support her, she wouldnt have been an engineer today.
But then, fortunately she got an admission call from one of top 10 colleges of the University.Now was the biggest challenge to prove to my relatives that she could do it.But again as luck would have it or whatever reasons, she faced so many failures in her subjects that her relatives got a chance to say 'We knew you can never become an Engineer'. This sentence totally grappled her confidence away.Lack of confidence and belief was the greatest barrier to her success.
Then again, god sent her an angel, she says, who guided her on the right track. He saved her from falling down in the deep valley of disbelief .He helped her build up her confidence again and helped her grow.This angel was none other than her best friend, her brother, my well-wisher and now her brother-in-law . He tranformed her perception towards life even more in a more positive way.He taught her self-analysis, helped her to realize her strengths and make them more stronger and helped her overcome weaknesses and convert them into strengths.
These three angels of her life: Her Mother, Sister and Brother-in-law have helped her build up so much of inner strength that she can now look at her failures in a completely different way.They have inculcated in her the magic of believing so deep that she now faces her failures with this "thodasa roomani."
