A Message To Every Disappointed Admission Seeker.

Hey guys. In lieu of this recent admission issue,I just have a few words to say. I won't call them words of encouragement,just a little enlightenment.

You see,there's something Socrates said. "Man,know thyself. The unexamined life is not worth living". There is an incessant need to search within ourselves to discover what we truly want,who we truly want to be. Why? Because whether or not you make it,you end up being 100% responsible for your actions. Why not choose to be happy? To be sucessful?, instead of floundering and wallowing away in choices that would make you unhappy in the long run. Your life,your future,your career starts now. Its really not about what you study or where you are. Thing is,as long as you can put your thinking faculty to good use,you can be whoever you want to be. Who you think you are and what you think your capabilities are, is all a matter of your mindset. If you believe you can do something then you will do it. Those aren't just words. Its reality

There are four steps in making something happen. You have the idea,you develop the ability,you put into action and it becomes a reality.

If you haven't gotten the admission yet or you didn't get the course you want,don't let that deter you. Learning is not all about the books,it's about how you can apply the books. No matter where you are,as long as you are able to learn how to apply yourself to what you are doing and broaden your horizon,you will make it. Don't stick to your everyday learning,pick up a skill,get involved in activities, go for trainings. Just do something! Do that thing you know,that something that will help you gain an edge over others. The fact that you didn't get what you wanted should never stop you from being who you want to be.

Albert Einstein said "I have no exceptional talents other than a passionate curiousity". You don't always have to be better than others or even in the same level with them. No,you just have to learn to upgrade what life throws at you to a level you wish it to be. Its never the course,its the individual that makes it known worldwide.

You! Yes..I'm talking to you. You have that ability,the ingenuity to twirl the world around in your favor. Stop hiding. Stop being lazy. Don't wait for things to happen. Make them happen.

You have that something in you that makes you exceptional. Never give up on yourself. Develop the you that the world would be crazy about. You have creativity in you,you have innovation. Apply that to your everyday life and believe me,as they say,the sky will only be a starting point

"There'll always be a chance that you could hit the wrong note

Everybody could laugh and make you think you won't grow

You never give up
Its not the end of the world
You live and you learn
Even when think that times get hard
Its temporarily hard
All you gotta do is make that call
I'll be there
Don't be scared
You don't have to lose it

Remember the music"-Jennifer Hudson

Looking at those lyrics,we can pick a few lines. You'll make mistakes,yes but you don't give up. You never give up,no matter how hard things get for you. Remember your purpose and your goal in life. When you fall,get back up. Everyone has a story to tell,don't think yours is the worst. Where others have failed,pray to succeed. Even when you fail,try again.

I know you can make it. All you have to do is believe and then, you'll become
