Find your own silver lining…

Thunderstorms aren’t quite so boring as it looks. At least, Benjamin Franklin wasted no time in figuring out it’s electricity using the kite and the key.  If I were him, I would have chosen to sit back and just watch the storm!!! Life comes with its own up’s and down’s. It’s up to you to look at it through the different angles possible.

Michael Faraday used his part time job as a book assistant to read the books and educate himself. When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, “I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process and I learnt how not to make a bulb!”

Looking back on my high school years, I was constantly on the move. I used to juggle through a number of activities, which was of course at the expense of my grades. Unfortunately, I had flunked once to learn the most important lesson of my life. Time management. I am thankful today for that lesson. During these years of med school, juggling through time has helped me pass from one semester to the next.

The whole point is, we have to stop to blaming the situation, and instead look for another alternative. Every problem has an answer. The solution disappears when we sow the slightest seed of doubt in our minds. So the best thing to do is to follow your dreams, wherever it takes you !!! Every tempest, every thunderstorm is followed by a cloud burst, and if you look for it, you can see that little silver lining !!!
