My Bold Step

There is a moment in everybody’s life when you have to take a bold step to fulfill your dreams. To take that bold step you might face some problems, but you carry on with your decision because you know that you have to take this step to achieve your goal in life. There was a moment in my life in which I had to take a bold step to achieve my goal in life. 

When I finished my school, my father wanted me to join our family business of cosmetics manufacturing. I wanted to be an engineer so I said no to my father and told him that I don’t want to join the family business. My family members were also against my decision. I had to convince everyone in my family for my engineering. I told them that I have a very good future after doing engineering.  At first, everyone was against it and then finally I managed to convince them for my engineering. As soon as I got the green signal for my engineering, I started filling up the forms of various universities.  I gave the entrance tests got admission in Indraprastha University, Delhi.

I was called for counseling and was given Information Technology (IT) as my branch. I had the option of staying at home but I opted for the college hostel because I didn’t wanted and disturbance in my studies.  I studied very hard throughout my engineering because I knew it was my decision to do engineering and I had to show to my father that I took a good decision for myself. I scored an aggregate of 75 percentile in my engineering.

Companies started coming for on-campus placements, I gave the interviews of two companies and was not selected. I got tensed as I was unable to get a placement. One day, I came to know that IBM is coming tomorrow for campus drive. I started preparing for it as working with IBM would be a dream come true. I gave the written test and was shortlisted for GD and then interview. They were impressed by me and my skills and I was selected for IBM. I told my parents about my selection in IBM and they were very happy.

After two year of my job, I gave the Common Admission Test (CAT) and scored 99.4 percentile. I did my Master of Business Administration (MBA) in marketing and currently I am working with Coca Cola as a business consultant. I took the bold step and said no to my father when he told me to join the family business to fulfill my dreams. Today, I and my family think that I took a good decision at that time.
