Let me tell you about a story of a boy who never gave up even after a thousand number of excuses to do so.
The name is Rishiraj Salin.
The boy with a very strict environment and with a mogambo dad. He potrays his childhood as a dark phase with a lot of violence in it, not like the normal cheerful life a child should get. That little boy was scared of communicating in “home” (the place where most of us come back after a hectic day scedule and find comfort). So to get rid of that suffocating environment, he focussed on studying( the thing most children avoid im home). Also he had the nightmares of ghosts ( a normal thing for a child ,isnt it). These were the burden of traumas on that little boy’s little head.
It was normal for him to get panicked, to develop low self confidence and in this entire process of “life” he developed stammering and it gradually increased
He used to escape situations where he had to communicate …. he developed the habit of staying alone and in that process became isolated…but as we know humans are social animals ..so can you think what does that little boy felt in this BIG world?
Well then came a tiny light in his closed dark room , the light of TISA
HE joined tisa at 2017 with a severe stammering, and a underwhelmimg shy personality. He started attending shg offline meetings and participated at online meetings( features of TISA)
He saw changes but not very consistent
But he being him never gave up
He practised over and over with definite consistence (the only constant thing in all winner’s life) , sometimes from reading books in front of mirror by using techniques taught by TISA
He made sure to utilize every activities provided by TISA like story telling, impromptu speaking, role playing and discussion activities, filled mock interview forms.
There is a saying that even the toughest stone starts to break by persistent hard word and patience.
Before any interview he had even devoted around 3 hours on his speech, can you feel his zeal now?
And as expected ,he finally saw flowers growing in his barren garden..oh comeon, god is not that bad to ignore such hard work.
He want to thank all that interviews now( with time he got more and more fluent!…ofcourse the power of practise).
He is currently holding 4 offers(mettler toledo, Accenture, hexaware and colgate) and he has a gorgeous personality now and he want to gratify TISA and his activities now!.. which helped to build his mountaineous level of confidence today . From being a shy sympathetic stammerer to becoming a proud confident stammerer and sometimes almost like a non stammerer (during interviews), the efforts were fructiferous . Anyway he has decided to go with Colgate Palmolive.
He want to thank all his fellow non pws family of TISA with whom he practised on a daily basis and he tells that “this journey might not have been possible without such a wonderful platform in form of TISA”.
So what did you learn from this journey??.what are the key words?
2. The necessary zeak to practise,
4.having faith in oneself ,
5.believing your wellwishers( here TISA).
