There was a guy in my class, he was the dumbest guy in the class. He failed in at least 2-3 subjects in every semester. Every one of us bullied him. Even at the end of our degree, we started meeting our professor’s to say thanks and to click picture with them so that we can remember them always in our lives. But this guy went to every professor to at least give him pass marks so that he can also get degree this year and don’t have to attend college for one more year.
But good thing with that guy, he was very good at imagining things, drawing and using Photoshop. After we completed college every one of us got job and we all got busy with our life. But this guy he was still struggling for getting what he always wanted to do. He wanted to Masters in Designing. I never met him for these last 5 years as he and myself both were busy in our life. But few days back I got a call from one of our mutual friend that Eric is here and if you can come to downtown Warwick Street. We can have a small get together. I said ‘oh yes , at least we can meet that dumb guy!
As soon as we went there and started talking, he told us everything about his life and how he got his Masters in designing degree. He said even in his master’s degree school, he was the dumbest student but he learned what he always to learn in a perfect manner and no one in his class can match his creativity techniques and sometime even professors praised his work by saying that ‘we have an experience of more than 40 years and even we can’t think of thing’.
Now coming down to point, what he is learned is Designing products and how to have a thought process, which is only way to be creative in designing field. He is working for a very reputed Designing firm and no one can imagine that dumbest guy of the class can even imagine of doing a PhD from Harvard University and in December of this year he is going to start his PhD in Harvard. (Miracle! ! NO)
The Moral of this story is to inspire those of my friends who read these stories that it happens somewhere at some point of life that we fail at that instance. But our interest lies in that. And we quit pursuing our interest because we failed once!
No friends just see this guy even he failed many times in his life, he was the weakest student in studies in his undergraduate time and graduate studies but still he studies and learned what his interest was and now he is one of the best in his field.
We don’t change when our time changes, we change when we want to change ourselves.
