What makes a champion is not how elegantly you start, but how strongly you finish.

    Many times we over estimate the Problems
    And under estimate Our Potentials.
    Faith in ourselves alone will give us the true estimate of Both.
    Have Confidence and march forward
    In Life with Triumphant strides …. !!!!!!!

    In life I always had teething problems, the start will be difficult but once I started and tried with patience and perseverance I was able to win the situation. For that I learnt that you need God and elder's blessings and good wishes from friends which I always had and made me achieve the good things in life

    My school days were very good because I had good teachers and loving friends who helped me whenever I required. From 8th to 10th standard was a memorable time in school because I had my best friend who was rich but very simple and always helped me . Both studying together for 3 years made us achieve our goal

    My first job as a teacher I did not like but I remembered the advice given by our Mother Superior who told me you shoudl stick to one job then only you will be successful in life. I did not like the teacher job because I was not good in that. But then with God's blessings I got a good job first in Hyderabad where I worked for 2 years and then since we shifted to Bombay , through the recommendation of my boss I immediately got a job in Mumbai as a Typist where with the recommendation of bosses I was promoted as Steno, then as a Senior Assistant. I had not given any exam for Stenography but my bosses were good enough to give me promotion. Senior Assistant also was a surprise for me because I was given the portfolio of looking after the Bank Reconciliation of the whole Company. In the beginnign it was difficult but with God's blessings and with the help of my good bosses learn the job of accounting. When computer was introduced and I had to do through Computer there was so much problems but our Finance Director had faith in me and asked everyone to help and I could succeed in doing the job .

    I was married to a big family and in the beginning it was difficult for me as I was not good in cooking and everyone in my dh's family were experts. Since I was a working woman I was more interested in working and achieving m goal in the office than at home. But since my in law's family were good people , though I had problems I could win over them and they helped me. I was very happy to receive the appreciation of my eldest brother in law, getting a pat on my back from him was a big thing but I could manage with my patience.

    In this site also early stages I was not so confident in writing but friends here help me whenever I want and I could win friends and daughters and make myself happy

    I am not writing all this to boast but only to say that life is not so easy as we think. if we believe that where there is a will there is a way and try, try till you succeed we can achieve our goals in life.

    Whatever I am today is because of the blessings of God and elders and the good wishes of my friends who always wished the best for me. There is nothing I have done but God made me do it as I had faith in Him


    The light which shines in the eye
    is really the light of the heart.The light which fills the heart
    is the light of God*,~ Rumi
    Follow your heart and be true to yourself. Never live the life of another. You have to create your own road . You have a responsibility to be the best you can possibly be ,so keep your mind and heart open to the higher aspects of your being. And you will harness the power to have a loving and fulfilling life with attitude .
    God has a perfect plan for us. He never does it all at once, just step by step because he wants to teach us to "Walk by FAITH" not by sight.

    Nice experience Viji.In life it is not important how many times, we fall, but how many occasions we get up and proceed. many situations which seem terrible initially become a cake walk in due course. But patience and perseverance to rise up and march notwithstanding hurdles/impediments- are rare qualities ,ypu are blessed with, Very many thanks to God Almighty.
    Best wishes for the most inspiring lady of IL team.
