Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Each one of us has a story to tell! I am no different from you. Though am young, like all others I have had my share of challenges. I want to share a true story with all of you. Hope I convey to you the power of positive attitude.

When did it happen?

It was in my graduation days in Bangalore when there were placements on campus. Everyone was preparing long and hard so that they get the best offer. I was also up to the challenge. Very first company came and refused to let me write the written test as I had low marks in my 12th grades. I was shattered as I was among the top students in Engineering and only because my 12th grade marks were not good, I was denied to be even looked at! I cried that night as it was frustrating. But I remembered many of well wishers asking me to Stay Positive! How on earth do I stay positive? Frankly I didn’t know what it meant and how to harness the power of positive attitude.

Next day another company came and I was allowed to appear for written test and I cracked it! Next was interview round and being a Biotech Engineering student I had applied for job in Software Company! Needless to say interview was going to be hard nut to crack!

Timely Help from my Mind

As the interview was about to start I made myself believe that “I am going to crack the interview” and “I am going to get this job”. What I did not realize that deep down my mind I was harnessing power of positive attitude. I had no skill set required for the job. However my interview went as per MY terms and knowledge and guess what I had my first offer letter in my hand! I cannot describe in words the feeling it was!

Further Improvement

I was never one among them so instead of rejoicing and forgetting I analyzed what had happened and how did I end up getting the job which was out of my skill set! I was not a trained psychologist to understand that I was using power of positive attitude. I was looking for some direction on how to develop power of positive attitude. Like many of us, even I did not know where to get what I want! I decided to read some great books and follow it so that I can achieve even bigger things in my life.
