Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary
– Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
This has been my favourite words and mantra, ever since I read these lines from a magazine. The very mantra made me a better person till date while seeing extraordinary results, one of them was to crack a job in my dream company , Cognizant Technology services through campus selections , whilst pursuing MBA . And, yes, I’ve been one among four students who got selected from hundreds of students competing for four job positions in the leading company. This just happened by kept reading these lines every day which was placed on my desktop. Indeed, I took clear and tough actions to see that I prepare every step to gain knowledge in all grounds – subject knowledge, communication skills, writing skills and interview questions. For example, my preparation immersed so much that I went to college on January 1st 2011 , whilst every student was relishing to spend some special day in a year, but, I took a bold step to make my dream come true and celebrate my special day in a year. To my wonder, it’s only me and watchman in the campus diligently working on the day where everyone wants to keep all their tasks aside. Being away from all kind of numerous deviations on that very day gave me a great focus on my preparation and also a valuable time investment on my dreams to achieve. After having a very adequate preparation thoroughly, I was selected for the job in January 2011 and received my order to be joined on May 5th 2011.
Finally, I was able to see a dream come true through sheer hard work and to listen to your own inner voice and ignoring other distractions around you.
