Future is always unpredictable. We never know what the next day holds
for us or what our situations will force us to do.
I was doing my MCom as I received the good news that I was going to
be a mother! There were many complications health wise that I had to
face, hence I stopped my course half way. After a gap of two years I
completed Mcom but I had no clue what to do next. For the next two
years I spent my time idly sitting at home doing the typical domestic
things. After all the work was done, I had nothing in particular to to focus
on, so I constantly found myself being depressed and bored. During
phone calls with friends I realised that they all continued to chase their
dreams and are now well settled with good jobs. So I thought. I thought
about what I really want in life and I finally decided to give my carreer
plans a second chance.
I started taking small small steps, wrote cooperate society exams, learnt
SAP course and so on. But still deep inside there was a voice telling me,
this is not what I am meant for. I understood that I am not meant to be
stuck with an accountant post ,but I have the potential to achieve
And finally I made my life changing decicions on February first week
2019. I made plans to write NET exams this year itself. I bought several
guides and text books but they were not helping me that much. So I
dusted my old MCom books and read each book, page by page, and
word by word. The entire book was so thorough for me and along with it,
joined a coaching class to help crack the exam. The coaching class by
Saji sir was extremely helpful for me since I had a break of nearly 4
years in between.
I utilised every second of my time to complete the course. If I start
learning at 10 in the morning I only stopped by 4 or 5 in the evening. I
referred many previous years question papers and checked out the
question patterns. Rather than memorising the answers I always learnt
by comparing each and every objectives. This method helped me to
understand concepts very easily and I never forgot the contents which I
got very familiar with.
The topics to clear were very vast. So for subjects which were hard, I
learnt the basics thouroughly than diving into tough questions. And for
the ones that were easier for me to understand, I learnt it in depth. I
knew that trying to learn tough ones beyond my capacity will only lead to
byhearting and waste of time and eventually I might forget everything.
So I took immense care to make everything I knew very thorough and
leave the rest at the basics.
Many youtube channels and websites helped to crack how the exams
are going to be. One thing I understood is that rather than buying a lot of
textbooks and guides, which we might never even find the time to
complete reading, find good internet sources that spread information in
very simple and useful ways.
Our results always depend on how we go on with our studies. The more
effort we put into it, higher will be our success rate. Always work the
hardest we can to our full potential. And above all have confidence in
ourselves that we will definitely achieve our goals with flying colours.
