The other advices that made a difference

On my previous blog post, I had discussed about some of the advices I had received from my Mom and how it made a difference in my life. In this blog post, I would continue speaking about few more.

The first and foremost that I would like to speak about is the advice I got from my Dad - Timeliness. This is something that is close to my heart and I follow it till date. My dad has told me to be on time for any event or meetup. I started following it and when ever I had to attend an event, I will make sure that I start early from home so that I need not have to rush up. These served two purposes.

1) My energy is saved as I can avoid the last minute rush.
2) I can travel on the mode of transport I prefered saving money.

This timeliness of mine has been appreciated by many of my clients and friends. This certainly makes a difference as it shows that you are genuinely interested in an event or an happening. This also sows your level of commitment. I have given the advice to my friends too who were late always and had seen a visible difference in their lives too when they had put it to good use.

Secondly I got an advice from my Mom to believe in my conscience. I followed it as a kid and I still remember an incident where a teacher came to me and told me that one of the answer I had ticked is an incorrect one. Though it is not ethical on her part, she did tell me because we were nighbor. My conscience told my answer was correct and I refused to correct it. When I came back home and checked the answer, mine was correct and I did share this incident with my mom who felt very proud of me.

It is easy to get deceived by others but we must practice what we believe is correct. I did that and I was saved.

Last but not the least, I would like to wrap up this post with another incident. After my 12th exams, I so much wanted to join Pachiappas College since classes hardly happened during those days as they were known for their strikes. My parents did not allow me to join since my dad himself had studied there and knew how it is. I was forced to join DG Vaishnav College and when I finished my degree, I came out with flying colors securing the University Rank and got the convocation from then Union Minister of India. What more can I ask for??

I am blogging about my dreams and the people who helped make them true for the #AdviceThatMattered activity at BlogAdda in association with Stoodnt
