My Positive Reflection

Looking at my 2020, I think the best decision I made in that year is to join AMAL Academy. It has benefitted me in so many ways, changed the way I look at things, my attitude towards hurdles in life, and all that. I wanted to join in the summer batch last year but could not get selected due to whatever reason but now I can say that Allah has better plans for you and joining now is a blessing.

Impactful Incident

One of the impactful incidents that happened to me at the Amal Academy was winning the Most thoughtful project award in Project Work 7. I was doing project works for the past 6 weeks sometimes just fulfilling formality due to a lot of business. As soon as time passes, looking at the people winning awards every week urges me to get that award too. I asked one of the fellows who just got an award for PW6, about what special she does and she was like, “I didn’t submit any extra thing, I had a little extra time this week so, I complete PW6 putting more time into it and done it with more dedication.”

I wondered and found out that I was not putting that much effort and at that time, I thought of doing my remaining PW’s with more dedication and putting more time into them. Right after 1 week, I was overwhelmed to see my name in that week’s award and then that fellow congratulates me and reminded me of her words.

Give your best shot

When I look around my fellows, I found out that those were just giving their best shot, putting in their efforts, and then waiting for the results. I learned a great lesson that day to give your best, put in 100% effort, and don’t worry about the results. Success follows the pain you bear. The more pain you bear, the more successful you will become.

In the future, I will try to be more positive, will show more gratitude, and will try to give my best in every situation.
