Nothing is impossible


Naeem Kandwal
Napoleon Bonaparte once remarked, “The word ‘impossible’ is found only    in the dictionary of fools.” In this world everything is possible on the basis of will power, dogged determination and sacrifice. To accomplish the most difficult tasks, we need to put in a lot of hard work, extra perseverance and concentration on a single objective. We should have patience and faith in ourselves. We should have determination, dedication and devotion to attain success. We should never bother about the result. We should keep on going even if the pace is slow and should ensure that it remains steady. One is bound to face obstacles en route to success, but with courage and perseverance, one can master them. Our positive attitude and clear frame of mind determine our future. In this world, there is no such thing as Chance. By our own ideas, will and ability, we can create a number of chances, circumstances and the desired atmosphere to achieve the toughest goal. There are so many examples which show that the word ‘impossible’ is not present in stalwarts’ dictionary but what is present is ‘faith’. Yes! Nothing is Impossible. When Sarah started her journey of survival of pursuit she didn’t know where she was heading to. At A-Levels she decided to do Architecture following her father’s footsteps who himself was at a senior position as Mechanical Engineer. She was guided to opt for National College of Arts (NCA) in Lahore and she did get into it as an esteemed student of Architecture. Later by the end of first semester successfully her parents gifted her an admission into Bachelor of Business in Information Technology that was an international degree being awarded by Beaconhouse Informatics at that time. Technology was getting the hipe those days and she was ignited by the whole new magic of high-tech study.After she graduated from Curtin University Australia she was on hunt for job and got her start from NESPAK as Systems Analyst from the minimal salary. She soon realized that while the designation sounded attractive she didn’t quite understood the way of working in Pakistan so she continued her hunt for a better working system that could equal her understanding gained from a degree of international recognition. Nevertheless she landed doing MBA and started to make her case study on old traditional working system in Pakistan. From that point onwards she gained on job experience from multiple organizations in Tech, recruitment, marketing and business consultancy. She could not be stopped or hindered for crawling towards her goal of living her own life with success and buy her happiness that her parents had made her capable of from the day she was born.Meanwhile she had her consultancy company registered in 2010 as DreamSofTech and her Masters in Computing was also completed to keep her abreast of changing business and technology evenues in Pakistan. She started multiple projects within her company in health, technology and business while teaching and doing research as a PhD Scholar of Computer Science in International Islamic University. These projects have now been shaped into subsidiaries owned by DreamSofTech and are gaining momentum and speed with Allah’s grace and strength bestowed on her. So there is no doubt that she is set to achieve the impossible and making her mark for younger generation to follow. There is no doubt about the fact that man cannot make any progress without effort and hard work. For example, one who studies whole-heartedly becomes a scholar. Similarly, a farmer who ploughs the farm, sows seeds in it and waters them, is soon rewarded with crops. On the other hand, whoever is lazy and indolent and does not do any work, is faced with woes and worries. Indolence and irresponsibility results in poverty and grief, and Islam dislikes these things very much. Islam regards hard work a duty. Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (a), our sixth Imam, also impressed upon the people the advantages of hard work. He has said: “Allah does not love those who sleep too much, and do not work”. I believe that nothing is impossible. There is no limit as to what a person can do. Whether it’s getting into college, getting a job, making a difference or just setting a goal and reaching for it. There is no star that is too far out of reach. We should have faith take courage and march ahead, onward and upward till we attain the goal. Without great enthusiasm and effort nothing is achieved. Enthusiasm puts a sparkle in our eyes, a tilt in our steps. It often makes us perform extraordinary feats in very ordinary situations. Never let your mind think that any work is impossible. Always endeavour with new zeal. We should start our work with dedication, motivation and should be unattached with the results. Everything is made possible in the world by a determination which is as strong as steel.
