Remind yourself what you have achieved. Let me tell you why? It will help you to plan your future more positively.
First, let me tell you about my achievements in life? It’s for sure you are thinking why I am speaking about my achievements now on January 1, 2020. After five months, my service life will come to an end. So I take this opportunity of January 1, 2020, to take stock of what I have achieved. Happy New Year to all of you. Sometimes you have to look back how much you have advanced in your journey.
This way, you can rate your achievement based on the distance traversed fro your staring point.
I give here the details of my past background or my starting point. Our family was a middle-class family out of a village of West Bengal. My father had a stroke. His left side paralyzed, and so he expired early. That time I was in the sixth standard. My mother was such a caring homemaker with no educational background. Still, she raised us with due care.
Someone with extraordinary circumstances can belittle each of my achievements. But the person does not know my starting point. So he can not rate my performances. Am I clear to you?
