I Am A Chartered Accountant!
Before I start my story, I have to tell you’ll that I’d typed this story out 2 weeks, actually 12 days to be precise, before my CA final exams and am just submitting it now!! 🙂
I had 4 papers (Group 2) to clear but for some reason I wasn’t able to do it! This was my 3rd attempt having cleared the other 4 papers (Group 1) in the first attempt! I studied really hard for the last two attempts but kept focusing on not wanting to fail instead of wanting to pass, which lead me to failure the last two times! This is something I realized after watching The Secret movie.
Anyway for the exams in May, I began studying in February! I was focused on clearing it this time. However after a month and a half, the horrible feeling of boredom started to set in. My productivity started declining. That’s when I randomly happened to Google “Secret to clearing CA Final” and came across so many other inspiring CA Stories!
I was amazed! There were rank holders here!! I also read stories about IIT’ians and MBA’s! So I drew up my desired mark sheet and stuck it above my study table! 268 was my desired total! I prayed hard and thanked the Universe even harder! I knew deep down in my heart I would be sharing this story with you guys!
And 2 months later, here I am! 😀
The result day dawned! I woke up a bundle of nerves but kept repeating to myself: “Today is the day I’m going to become a Chartered Accountant!”
After a couple of hours of frantically refreshing the website because the results are almost always out earlier than the given time, and desperately visualizing my desired mark sheet, it happened!
The results were declared, and I’d passed!
Not exactly with the marks I wanted but real good marks of 234! I am now a Chartered Accountant!
Maybe I didn’t get exactly the marks I wanted but I was 100% sure I was going to pass! I knew it and that felt amazing! I felt so happy and at peace with myself before and after the exams!
It took me 3 attempts and an entire year and half of studying but there isn’t an ounce of regret! Life has taught me so much from these last 2 failures, more than anything in the last 23 years of my existence! It was worth waiting for!
A big thank you to Rhonda Byrne and the entire team of The Secret! You guys are so amazing! You have changed my life and thousands of other lives!
I’ll now conclude by saying don’t be afraid to dream big, study hard, visualize your goals each and every day and have patience! Undoubtedly, success will be shining upon you!
