A Thought proves to be a seed.

Unconsciously I was inclined towards getting enrolled in Foster Flagship Training Programme, without knowing about it. I asked my sister, can I apply for it. Her answer was. No you are too old for it, hahahaha.She further added that only students with continuing degrees can apply. I laughed loudly at her comment. Well it was a general talk. I forgot it after a day or two. After some days I got an email, Marryam you are short listed for interview, with the time, date and venue. Marryam had mentioned my email address in the online application. I felt happy for her. Through the chain of procedures, finally she was selected. I was to go with her on her very first day. She had never travelled alone via public transport. So, I had to perform this duty. Somehow I managed to sanction my leave and went with her. The first day was so good that I could not stop myself going with her. There was another issue, that there was nobody to go with her. There in the start of session we were provided with notebook with a broad title on it I can and I will.
The environment created was like family, getting introduction, helping each other and much more. Accomplishing the simple task of originating professional email account with new people was a good experience. The day ended beautifully with this activity in different teams.
It seemed to be constructive for me. Now ending of this session has proved it. This very interaction with foster family enabled me to express my ideas. I never thought of expressing my views in written. It enabled me to write a blog. Using this platform I use to share my experiences. What I witness, I think of writing a blog regarding it.
Getting a difference between fixed mindset and growth mindset, I analysed myself and decided to stick to growth mindset. I developed a sense of growth mindset.
By getting the idea of DOT connecting theory, I got the concept of positivity of the events of my life. It was by it that how artistically I got the idea that joining the dots of events in life in order, we come to know that the previous events (good as well as bad) were logical to force us to the present position. By different activities Foster Leaders inculcated in us the personal skills of communication, team work, critical thinking and problem solving. It is amazing to feel that this all helped us in our projects .We overcame the hurdles and accomplished the tasks successfully.
Moreover they forwarded us towards e learning. I am enrolled in a leadership online course. I have completed my first week and is going through the second successfully.
I heard about online working many times tried it but never succeeded in getting a platform for it. It is through Foster that I came to know about the platform through which one can earn money by employing one’s skills by sitting at home.
Bringing entrepreneurs to the national level is what Fosters are striving for. It is amazing that in the first badge of twenty fellows nine entrepreneurs were brought to the front. In the badge of Faisalabad, there are near twenty entrepreneur ideas. Making them successful will lead to improve the economy of the country. It would help out in decreasing unemployment to a maximum level. We are encouraged to develop our entrepreneur ideas by finding the society gaps. We are told the complete path leading towards SCALE. We planned our business ideas and are working on them. We are moving towards having research in this respect.
This is how my little thought proved to be a seed of the tree of consciousness. It is now leading me towards my actual path. Do you think that a thought is important in one’s life? ……
