Only you can control your future

Good Evening Everyone!

I am going to begin the subsequent part of the blog.  After taking the advice from my counselor I reached home. I illustrated all the details to my husband on phone and he was so delighted to know about my training. He believes that throughout my training, my interaction skills may be enhanced.

Before I introduce facts about internships, we need to talk about another topic which is Personal Development. Personal development has a huge role in our internship as well as in our regular life. You have to be very mindful of your attitude when it comes to personal development. Your attitude will decide your progress on your own personal development.

Personal Development is the process of self-education aimed at enhancing professional skills, employability, quality of life and self-discipline. In my training phase, I would be magnifying my individual abilities in various fields. For anyone hoping to climb the career ladder or improve their sense of purpose, personal development is an invaluable aspect of it.

On the first day of my training,I had this feeling of nervousness before attending my first lecture. I was worried about students making fun of me and my background in the classroom. What kind of students would I be facing in the classroom? But soon I realized that all the students were from a similar background like me.

There were 2 students wanted to study abroad. There was another student, and her name was Raman. As I began to communicate and chat with her, I realized that we both were in similar situations. As she was also in transition to move in the USA with her husband. I realized that the time I have to wait for my immigration paperwork is more than enough time for me to learn new skills and concepts in the IT field using this course.

I remember one day our faculty told us about own development. Personal development does not stop after graduation, but the years spent in college arecritical for individual growth. Networking and participating in community events are great opportunities for personal growth and development.There are two kinds of mindsets: growth mindsets and fixed mindsets. Someone with a growth mindset is likely to: welcome challenges and new things.

Changing your mindset is not easy—but it is one of the most powerful things you can do. Learning how to recognize a negative mindset is the first step. Once you do, you will be empowered to make those changes and start seeking out the positive. Doing this can often turn your entire life around!

Personal development can be learned through trying new things, trial and error, failure, reflection and awareness of oneself. Personal development is important in helping to learn, reflect, and realize your own potential. Learning how to learn is a major obstacle to overcome.

 Internship is a unique way of enhancing personal development in short time.
