When we talk about Success or see the successful people around, we think they turned to the known stars overnight, but we forget to see and understand their continuous efforts, their struggling days and nights, their efforts, their positive attitude, their dedication and a feeling to turn every failure to Success. Becoming a helping hand and hope for many from the Crowd, itself a big achievement.
The very first day, I went to college and entered into the classroom a girl well educated from an English medium school said look the people from the village are coming to do the engineering and they think they will change the world. I am sure he will not be able to survive even a single semester you illiterate villagers (I had no idea what she said in English as I was not knowing the English very well. No one was willing to do the friendship with me because of my dressing sense until I met 3 of my friends.
As I mentioned, my English was so weak and I was not able to understand what my teachers were saying. So, I was looking at the same girl and when she was taking notes I was also taking notes.
College went well till 3rd year of my engineering and then we all started preparing for the written exams so that we can appear in interviews.
Companies came, I appeared and was not able to qualify for the interviews and started feeling like a loser with no moral support with me. And I felt like the below image.
After getting the failures in many Interviews (Approx. 25-30), I finally got selected by a small Company name “Astrea IT Services” based in India and that gave a Kick to my technical carrier. I still have those days in my mind when I took 15 days just to write very small triggers and then people compared me with my colleagues saying look at them, where you stand in front of them but all those sarcasm were my strength which motives me to prove everybody wrong and today, where I am, is a big slap to all my criticizers.
Currently, I am working as a Salesforce Developer and aiming to achieve more using the same platform. My next target is to become the Certified Technical Architect. But when I look back, I realized the hard work and efforts I put to become a successful developer from the struggling trainee.
I am not ashamed in mentioning that I am the same person who was not able to understand the English language which was itself the big barrier in my Success, it gave me so much headache. I never saw the computer before my graduation. The computer was a new toy for me and when I opened it for the first time, typing my name on it was a 3 hours task for me but all that struggling environment and the criticism from many on daily basis was not able to break me. When everybody announced me as the big loser, my inner self never accepted the same and that was the day when I decided to turn my every failure into a big success. That one thought and my passion to become Successful changed everything for me.
As my journey was so much struggling and there no mental and emotional support available to me and when it comes to technical, a long list of tasks was always there with no help but that was the life-changing Opportunity for me and I take all the challenges in a positive manner and start adapting myself as per the challenges. I used to work for 17 hours which made my base strong and because of that hard work, today I am capable to help many because I understand how it feels when you want a single positive hope in your life but there isn’t any.
Time to give back
Today, I have more than 6 years of Salesforce experience and in these 6
- The biggest achievement which I consider is my inbox which is always full of help requests and I love to see and resolve those messages on daily basis. I devote my 5 hours on daily basis to help people who are willing to learn but need a small push.
- Today, I am capable enough to write a Blog named SFDC Panther and have a YouTube channel which I exclusively start on the request of many where they want lightning videos. When it comes to community and helping people, I am continuously in the top 10 for the last 2 years without any failure. Because of my passion to help my Ohana and my behavior to uplift everyone to make the Ohana stronger, I got a chance to Lead the Faridabad Admin Group. and now I am leading the Salesforce Group in the Kanpur region.
- I have started my own Mock Interview PodCast where I do interview the students and freshers to give them the feel like a real interview and then provide them genuine feedback.
- I also have few courses on Udemy Platform and Here is my profile.
The mentality on which I strongly believe, and follow is “If you will not help yourself, no one else is going to help you.” Keeping that one thought in mind I am traveling for many years towards successful growth in Salesforce. The keen interest and dedication to learn new things always help me to gather the updated information about Salesforce. I genuinely value and care about my Ohana which always strengthens me to Learn and guide others with my knowledge. Keep learning and adapting new things is always a plus for me.“Your background or birthplace doesn’t define your Success, it is your zeal to achieve everything bigger which defines your Success.” Never ever underestimate yourself, just keep moving with a positive attitude and one-day success would be with you is the rule which I follow.
I am not saying I am pro in English and communication, I am still learning a lot of things with my seniors, mentors, colleagues, and my juniors as well. I do not have any place for junior and senior ego.
