My reflection: Often misfortunes happen for a reason and there's a brigter side to those misfortunes. Its just that we have to face the them and not give up hope.


This is absolutely true. There are several incidents in my life and I would like to share one of them. I was working as an account executive in one if the IT training organization when due to the 9/11 incident and the resultant havoc in the IT Industry, the organization I was working was closed and I lost my job. I was jobless and doing a bit of free-lancing here and there for about 6 months and one of my assignments during that time was for Sun Microsystems. One of the consultants whom I met during that period felt that I suit a better job and referred me to a great organization who was and is the market leader in micro-processors and here I am in this industry leading organization working for the past almost 7 years in different roles and exploring new horizons every other day.

Yes, you never know where an open door will lead, even after you step through it. Back when I was a third-year college undergraduate during the late 1980's going through some burn-out with my engineering studies, I applied for and was accepted for a six-month internship at a leading semiconductor company. The "semester time-off" and the internship experience renewed my motivation to finish out my engineering studies and subsequently land a full-time position at that same company. Looking back, I don't know if I would still be in a generally positive space right now (professionally and personally) had I not done that internship when I did.
