Before we set out into the world, we have endured countless hours of studying and making ourselves masters if not at least knowledgeable on certain areas in life. This is for us to be prepared in what we call the “adult life”. Because once we set out into the world and leave our nests there’s no turning back. I for one was a Communications Major in College, but as I go through my life, there are times that just doesn’t give you that much choice. So its either you wing back or get hit by the bat, right? Well, I always choose to swing back. I feel that though the circumstance that I’m or I was in was not really something that I would be glad to get into, but the thing is you have to deal with it.
So yeah, I was a Communications Major, then I got my first job in Call Center (yes, Philippines is swarming with BPO or Call Center companies). I was really happy there and yeah I was able to put my education into good use, communicating 🙂 But the thing is, since most of the clients are overseas, we have to work at night. And there came a time where in I became more prone to sickness because of it. So I decided that I should just get a regular job, like in Philippines time. One day, one of my friends asked if I can accompany her to her job hunting. Little did I know that she was applying for a bank and that she asked me if I wanted to apply too. At first, I was like “I’m not into banking and finance. I am a Communications Major”. And the only time I spent time doing math in school is during Math subjects which isn’t one of my major ones. So basically, I know how to count, add, subtract, ,multiply and add, but that’s it. She then told me “trying won’t hurt you know”. And so I did. I landed the job, I learned a lot from it. And at this point, though I’m no longer in that industry, I can definitely say “I did try and made it!”. So you see, you can accomplish anything in life as long as you believe that you can. Whatever life hits you with as long as you stay positive and happy you can definitely achieve what you came there to do.
I guess, all I’m saying is, whatever opportunity that’ll come your way even if it isn’t what you have been trained to do or have been doing for the longest time as long as you are open to learning new things and have faith in yourself you will always be good at it. Who knows, that change may even be the door that leads you to a better life 🙂
