Daily Post : Reach
In response to daily post’s prompt:Reach
Reach For The Top
My teacher once said, “Chaman, you should always aim to reach the sky, if you have a higher aim, you are bound to do well in life.”
To him in education one must reach the highest point, it should be our goal in life. When I think about his advice I sometimes wonder, if he were alive would he say he is happy I went as far as I possibly could.
I never thought how much time I should spend studying, there were obstacles in my path, my Dad passed away when I was very young, with him gone, I did not know how I will continue my education. I had older brothers, but I could not be certain they will give me financial help. I was very lucky two of my brothers helped me financially. I was able to complete a masters degree.
After my masters degree I wanted to get my education degree, I did not ask my brothers to help me, I applied for a scholarship and fortunately received it.
I wouldn’t consider myself ambitious, I always wanted to study in England, I knew it would be difficult for my brothers to help me financially, I kept hoping some day I’d win a scholarship to study in England. After teaching for two years I got an opportunity to apply for a British Council Scholarship, I did not think I’d be successful, I was called for an interview, I must have done well because I was selected.
Perhaps I think I’ve reached far enough I must be happy with it.
I think your teacher would be very proud of you. Well done!
Thank you so much Peter.:)
Thank you for sharing with us your story which is truly characterized by success upon success.
All good wishes,
Thank you so much. 🙂
Clearly, your reaching has realized much for you. I’m happy for you! Thank you for sharing your inspiring narrative.
Thank you, whenever I applied for a scholarship I was certain I won’t get it, so I didn’t tell my mom
or my siblings. I’d be afraid if I don’t get it they’d make fun of me. I only told them when I was successful.
Spending hours studying was something boring for me. I told them as long as I pass I’d be happy. So you know
they’d make fun of me, ‘you applied for a scholarship,’ they’d laugh and say,’don’t tell the relatives we won’t be able to
show our face.’ 🙂
