Dr Anjali’s message to her readers:
“Ask and she shall receive! Women often find it hard to ask for things, whether it’s a business opportunity or a salary raise. We simply expect others to recognize our value and hard work. Asking for what you want in a gracious, thoughtful way often results in getting what you want, so put your fears aside and ask for what you want. You might just get it!
Find your passion and a mission you believe in. When you feel like you make a difference in people’s lives, it becomes so much more than a job”
My advice would be initial years of your career, try to do your best at what you get but further keep exploring what you like and follow your dream till your passion becomes your profession. Please support this noble cause to motivate other girls and women to try their chosen career path. Don’t ever give up and excel in whatever you dream, never deceive, read a lot.
- Never ever say no to new challenges which come across your career, just give it a try.
- Never under estimate yourself. You must have been gifted with hidden talents which you may not have realized. Take up the job, give your 100% to it and keep on going with true effort. If many things are new, give yourself time for some self-study which will improve your efficiency. Sooner or later, you will be rewarded.
- In this changing world, always be open to learn new things. You can learn new things even form a small child.
- Of course, your hard work and determination with persistence will count a lot for your success.”
“There is no end to success- keep trying”
If she can, you can too!
