Pooja was a famous teacher who was appreciated by her students.
Today when she wrote on the blackboard "Tough times never last, but tough people do" students were curious about what's coming next.
She smiled and said, Students, I know you must have heard this famous inspirational quote, but today I want to share my father's learning with you.
I remember during my childhood days whenever we faced any tough times at home, my father always used to say, "Pooja, Always remember When you go through tough times, don't let them break you, instead they should bring out the best in you.
So one day out, of curiosity, I asked him, Dad, it's not easy to face tough times, is there any powerful tool to face them?
He smiled and said, Pooja, I'm going to share with you some things you can remember when facing tough times, and, trust me, these things will always help you navigate life's storms.
* Everything can and will change.
* It is a learning experience.
* You have overcome challenges before.
* Not getting what you want is a blessing.
* Being kind to yourself is the best medicine.
* Other people's negativity isn't worth worrying about
* And there is always, always something to be Thankful For.
Students were mesmerized listening to Pooja, the entire classroom was filled with the sound of applaud.
Pooja smiled and further said, Students, I know it may sound difficult, but once you adopt these principles in your life, you'll see the miracle happening in your life.
One of the students, Kavita raised her hand and said, 'Ma'am, I want to add something to what you said, May I?
Pooja was more than happy seeing Kavita raise her hand, she knew Kavita was a bright student and definitely what she wants to share would add more value to the discussion.
She said, Yes, Kavita, please go ahead and tell us what you want to share.
Kavita smiled and yes, "Ma'am, It's just a coincidence, but yesterday my dad read some beautiful lines in alignment with the Seven Learnings that you shared. If you permit, can I share the same with the class?
Off course Kavita, That's a brilliant idea, please go ahead.
Kavita started narrating the beautiful lines, her dad read her last night instead of bedtime stories.
Life is a roller coaster ride it has its ups and downs
but that does not mean you stop relishing the ride
What we can do is Just Promise Ourselves
And then enjoy this fantastic and wonderful ride.
Just promise yourself, not to let your spirits down even when things do not work in your favour,
Let not the doubts of fear stop you from attempting one more time.
Let nothing could disturb your peace of mind you need to make sure even amid darkness
You hold on to the spirit of positivity that lightens the tunnel in your life.
Just promise yourself, not to get trapped in the vicious cycle of self-doubt
Always remember You are your super-hero of your kind, maybe without a cape
Do not give up on yourself so easily you never know someone out there
Maybe looking up to you for inspiration, don't take away their source of hope.
Just promise yourself to embrace the failure too and treat it as a stepping stone to success,
Do not let the storm of failure affect your journey of success.
Failure often precedes success; you always need to believe in it and give your best in whatever you attempt in your life.
And then you would be blessed to see the colours of the success brightening your life.
Just promise yourself not to give up on your dreams, no matter how small or big it is
Give your best to it and experience the blissful feeling of letting it come true.
Last but not least promise yourself, let nothing in your life take away that smile from your face
And at the same time work towards being the reason for someone's smile.
Find the purpose of your life and enjoy this adventurous and beautiful ride.
As Kavita, finished reading, Pooja and the students started applauding, what Kavita shared was so true, beautiful and simple.
Pooja said, Kavita, Thank you for sharing this beautiful share. It's very heart touching and meaningful. We are blessed that you shared this with us.
As Pooja asked, Anyone else wants to share and what she saw was amazing, most of the students have raised their hands, everyone had something unique to share.
Today class turned out to be not just a class, but it became a platform for sharing.
When the bell rang and class got over, everyone shouted, "Ma'am, today's session was amazing, please plan more such sessions. We really enjoyed it and it was such a beautiful sharing session.
Pooja was more than happy hearing this from the students, she smiled and said, "Yes, students, definately we'll plan more such sessions.
