In school, I was poor at studies. I constantly got the last place in my class ranking, every single year. I was also terrible at any extra-curricular activity or sports. My teachers told me, “You will never succeed”, “You will never make it in life”. Because I failed all of my school examinations, I was therefore labeled as a failure in life. I was called a failure throughout my entire life in school. A failure in studies, a failure in school, a failure in life.
After growing up and leaving school, which I was happy to leave. It came time to do what any kid would do after leaving high school - apply for college. So the process began, filling out college applications after college applications. That’s how you get into college right. Fill up and submit as many college applications you can, and hope to be accepted by one or two colleges. So that’s exactly what I did. Submitting college application, after application, after application.
And next i just had to wait. I just had to wait for the colleges to receive my applications and send me a reply to be accepted into their institute. So I waited, 1 week. I waited to hear back from the colleges I applied for. 1 week… and nothing. Okay. So I waited and waited longer. 3 weeks I waited… waited and waited. Still nothing. No reply, no letter, no phone call, no email. So I waited and waited and waited more. After 2 months of waiting and no replies from any colleges at all. Yes, not one single college bothered to reply or call me. It became very apparent, that the colleges were trying to tell me something. They were trying to tell me that, “you will never be accepted into college”. It was very obvious, not hearing from them after 2 months, that I will be not accepted into any college at all.
