It was a do or die situation. I left my boarding school in the city and came back to my town so that I could focus better on my studies against my parent’s wish. It turned out to be something very challenging, something I had never even imagined! It was at that time when I realized how badly could I get affected with other people’s opinions and behavior . Where ever I went, I would be imposed with the same fear,”You’ve made a big mistake, what will you do in such a small place, you were better off there instead!”
So well, my career was destroyed. According to them. I tried hard to study but yes, their opinions were right to some extent. I was just trying to run away from that fact. I panicked and panicked as the days grew. I didn’t have anyone whom I could approach regarding the problem. I wasn’t able to understand anything at school, the faculty not being that good.
I saw a pamphlet from my school that day with the pictures of the school toppers smiling proudly. That day was the turning point. I used my knowledge of The Secret at the right place and time. I took that pamphlet and pasted my picture on the very first place. I believed I could do it, although I did have many points when I doubted myself. I had one more year in front of me. I studied like a normal student does, just in the class and prepared nicely for the tests. Whenever I felt things were not going right, I took out that pamphlet and imagined myself there.
That’s all I did, my friends. I was the school topper, breaking the previous records. I set an example. It was simply a magical moment for me. I made my parents proud and broke the traditional belief of “You can’t do good in small towns.”. And of course, there was an actual picture of me in the newspaper!
