Be Positive About Your Success Irrespective Of Your Background
Life isn’t a bed of roses for everyone. There are cases wherein people have been successful irrespective of a terrific childhood. Some of us might be lucky in having both our parents and are raised with utmost love and care. Some of us are brought up in orphanages and we still manage to live a decent life. Thus, life is always tough, but one has to stay motivated. We cannot grumble about our background, but can take the challenge and work towards a better life. One such example is Ballerina Michaela DePrince.
She suffered from a skin condition called vitiligo which made her go through several hardships. She was referred as the devil’s child and when her parents passed away she was put in an orphanage. Imagine, living a life a an orphanage. She was always bullied and her skin condition was always the target. She suffered silently, but she knew it was just a matter of time.
She was adopted by loving parents and soon she realized her passion for dance. She joined Dutch National Ballet and there was no looking since then. She wanted to prove everyone wrong and wanted to fulfill her wishes and dreams. She published her first memoir, “Taking Flight: From War Orphan To Star Ballerina.” Today she is one among the celebrities who has a huge fan following.
Thus, if you have a dream and you have been blaming your family and external environment for not able to pursue your dream, you must stop it right now. Take charge of your life and set an example for others. Your determination will help you to achieve your dreams. Do share your dreams with us and let us know if you have achieved them.
