The other day I met a gentleman who was very excited to hear about what I have launched in the form of SoaringEagles Learning.
He said “My daughter has just finished college. She was not very good in studies or interested in Commerce but we told her to do a B. Com. Now she is not sure what to do as she does not really want to crunch numbers or take up CA exams. We are also confused now and have told her to take a break for some time. Hopefully she will figure out something to do.”
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? We come across so many people who have pushed their children to take up engineering, medicine, B.Com and so on without any consideration for what their children want to do. Actually, the irony is that the children themselves are usually clueless about what they like or would want to do and so don’t mind being told what to do. However, this leads to more confusion and disillusionment. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
All of us are born with unique qualities and talents. Some talents are visible like music, art and so on, but most are not visible. Someone may have the gift of the gab, someone may be good at being sensitive to others’ feelings, and some may be really good with numbers. The trick is to recognise these talents, develop them and use them in one’s chosen field of work. Doing this will really make the person someone to reckon with. The Lakshya Employability Acceleration Programme is developed on this premise and hence will have a far reaching impact on a person’s life and career path.
