Sometimes I wonder, I can hardly see things clearly beyond 3 feet, yet I am handling huge responsibilities. I started my career as a Management Trainee and I thought it will be a piece of cake, but, it wasn’t. There were some very low points and some high points in this journey. Being disabled is not easy, especially when it is not physically visible. Initially, I was not around very kind people, they used to make fun of my problem and saw me as a nuisance. They underestimated and doubted my capability, I felt I can never compete with normal people. I was constantly demotivated by others and they always used make me realise that I can never be good enough. It still brings tears to my eyes when I think of that phase, I was shattered, why the world is filled with these many insensitive/unkind people.
I will admit, all this criticism has brought me where I am today. I never let them overtake my abilities. I think it made me stronger and bolder. If one desires to learn, He/She can Learn anything and achieve everything, that’s what has helped me to be an outstanding performer. Its been six years and now I am a Store Manager, still, the journey continues.My Supportive Colleagues
Fortunately, I also met some really good people, they understood me and extended their support whenever needed. They recognized my true potential and the best part was being treated equally and not as a disabled person. I was on cloud nine when I got promoted, it was because of my hard work and the guidance from my colleagues. It was their trust in me that motivated me, they believed in me. life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving and Never let any problem to effect your work nor use it as an excuse to avoid any work. No one is Perfect
Dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them
I believe, you either get bitter or get better. It is that simple, you either take what has been dealt with you and allow it to make you a better person or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, It belongs to you and only you.
