Run After Your Ambition and Success Will Follow
As soon as you are done with your schooling, every other person around you (be it a milkman or your maternal aunt) starts asking you about your future plans. Some of the very common questions that perhaps are repeatedly asked are like - so thereafter what will you do with your life, what are your plans for the future and so on. There is no second thought to the fact that at times these questions really put you off. In such situations, just give a polite answer to everyone, “Don’t you worry, I will make myself useful”. On this note, the questions from the outsiders might stop, but now the same questions will hover over your mind. However not to worry, as finding the answers are as easy as a pie. All you need is to know your ambition, work on it and leave the rest on time.
Run After Your Ambition and Success Will Follow - It has been more than a decade now that Punjab Technical University is giving a way to students and budding professionals for pursuing their ambition. We understand that success can only be achieved when you do something not just with your mind, but also with your heart. The career option that satisfies both your mind and heart is the right choice for you. However, if you are confused while selecting the right career option for yourself, allow us to clear your clouds of confusion.
Know what interests you the most - Every student has a different area of interest. Someone finds fun in solving the complicated algebras, and a few others enjoy sketching their imaginations on the canvas. You need to figure out what interests you the most.
Don’t ever feel that your dream is smaller than that of others - A dream is a dream; it’s never big, never small. If your friend wishes to be an engineer and you wish to be a writer, there is nothing wrong in it. As far as your ambition is giving you happiness, it’s worth pursuing.
Discuss your ambition with your parents - At times, students fear to put forward their thoughts in front of their parents. They feel that parents would not understand; our question is why they would not understand? For your good they will do anything, you just need to present your thoughts in the right way. Tell them that it would not be fair if a budding mathematician takes painting brush in his hands, or if a creative artist puts on glasses to solve queries. It will certainly lead to big blunders. We are sure that your parents will understand and welcome your dreams with both arms wide open.
If you have made your mind then stick to your decision - There is a very famous Bollywood song that says, “Kuch to log kahenge, Logon ka kaam hai kehna” (no matter what you do, good or bad, it’s the job of people to comment). So irrespective of whatever people say, if you know that you are doing the right thing then just do it. It’s your life; thus your decision and be responsible for putting in maximum effort. Best of luck and do well.
