A story about success
There was a story about a researcher who studied 500 high school graduates, most of whom came from Negros Oriental.
After the study, the researcher came out with the results and said that “the students have a low chance of success in life”.
Thirty years later, another researcher did a follow-up study on the graduates and decided to locate them.
Of that number, 480 became successful businessmen, nurses, medical technologists, professors, medical doctors, lawyers and people of importance in their specific field.
When the researcher asked each one of them how they became successful, all of them, one way or another, said the same thing: “There was this teacher…” The researcher found the teacher and asked what he had done to have such an impact on the lives of his students.
The teacher simply said, “I believed in their capacity to love and serve other people”.
Having someone believed in you is one of the ingredients of success.
It means that a person trusts you to be capable enough to handle all that life throws at you.
Life would not always be easy but if someone believes in your capacities, you can always be the best.
