Graduation & Appreciation speech

Standard

I always told myself this:

I do not want to excel amongst the others; I just want to excel within myself.

I can assure you, my sentences tend to be more complicated. Actually it just simply means, we should not compare ourselves with the others, we should just challenge ourselves and be good at it. Isn’t that what life has taught us to do? Remember, what was one of the major challenges when we were just about 1 year old? We took our very first step! They would not have called it the milestones if that was easy. I’m sure every one of us here has no memory of this, even if we try to dig out within amygdala, the so-called storage of our memories. But it does not have to be a memory anymore right? Because in fact it has become a part of us human being, to walk.

 

Learning Medicine is like that. There are so many things to learn in medicine and yet when we try to recall, we manage to remember only very little. We kept asking ourselves, what did I just study? But we may have not realized that in fact, it has become a part of us as well. That is how learning should be.

 

It is true that there are times when we experience something that I would call it the “burnout”. There was this one statement I remembered, they say the stars burnout. Since then I kept asking myself, how do they burnout. So last night I googled and the first statement that came up were “Generally, the more massive the star, the faster it burns up its fuel supply…” There you go guys, we study too much, and we are the stars.

 

Do not be discouraged when going downhill my friends. I still remember when I failed my first exam paper in medicine. But no, that was not the end. Just like people say, we learn from mistakes, we learn from failure. But what if we have given our best? Then we should be proud, because you would shine just like the stars. I think it would be more shameful if we did not have failed to even try. Like I said, excel within yourself, challenge yourselves further and believe me it would be just like when you started off with just a waddling gait and now you are capable of a full sprint.

Let us all go back again to when we were just about 1 year old. Was everything that we learnt, simple word of ‘mama, papa’, the only hardship? No. We would not be able to grow without our first teacher in life, our parents. Like I said, we must not have remembered the memories of our first walk but our parents do. They must have been so proud back then and they must be so proud right now to see their child grow nearer towards a success. Just like when we started to learn how to walk, they supported us well and they are still supporting us now. They are there when we are at our struggles and they were there when we are at our happiness. To them, we are their hopes, we are their stars and we are their dream. And dear beloved parents, we wish to fulfil your hopes and we wish to make your dreams come true.

As we grow older, we need more support. Especially when we just first started Medicine in UBD, it was just like when we were 1 year old and that must be why they called us the first year back then. And now we are in our 3rd year and we keep on growing. Just like how proud our parents must be when we took our first step, our lecturers and doctors here must be proud of us too. They must have that feeling of self-accomplishment as they have seeded us well. They did not just support us all through the years but they have taught us well. They taught us how to walk on your own feet and the tricks of know-how to survive Medicine, just like Dr Tayyab said we must grab the concept, concept, concept, concept!, with concept everything else comes. Although we simply cannot express how much thankful we are to our parents, lecturers and everyone else, but for them, to see us succeed will hopefully be enough to activate their zygomaticus major muscle, in other words they smile.

Thank you parents, doctors and lecturers, we are truly grateful beyond words. Thank you very much.

Failure? Hard work?

Standard

Yes. It needs a hard work to be successful. It can be a success in your study or even in your career. Whatever it is, it needs hard work. 

If I were to ask myself, have I done it? Have you beat up yourself just to get the most out of what you want to achieve? Definitely I can say that I have not. I have not given the best or the most that I can do. Sometimes we like to do things in our comfort zone and I have been sitting at this comfort zone. But in order to achieve something, like for example if you want to score in your exam, you have to challenge yourself and exploit your capabilities, your potential. All are done through hard work.

Well it will be up to what do we want to achieve. If you want to get an achievement, then there is no doubt that you will definitely need a hard work. It is only the matter of questioning yourself whether you want to achieve something? Do you want to get to the top of the hill? Do you want to explore you capabilities? Then, hard work is what you need.

While you should know that, if you fail at some point of your life. It may have meant that you did not put all your efforts into it, you did not work hard enough. However you may wonder, you may have given the most that you have, but why do I still fail? Then it could be other things that you might have missed, for that matter you just have to reflect back. Nevertheless, do not think a failure as a failure in your life. Look at failure as a lesson, remember that we learn from failure. Look at failure as a measurement, you may be giving your 70% not 100%. Look at failure as a success, a success that you have attempted. Its a failure only if you did not try or try hard enough. If you slipped once, get the courage to get up !

Remember, do not be afraid of failure. Be ashamed if you have not work it out hard enough. You just have to excel yourself. I would always have this thought, “I don’t want to be hard on myself”. But no, lets change that and take up the challenge – work it as if its gonna be your last workout ever !

Burnout is inevitable

Standard

Yes. In the near future there is no doubt at some point, you will reach the breaking point. I would write what have drawn me to medicine. Whenever I were to reach that point of burnout, refer to these statement again. There may be some other statement that I would write again in the near future. This will be your booster whenever in need.

For now remember that you believe in life-long learning and you are a learning enthusiast, especially in health related and Medicine ofcourse. Remember too that you want to pursue Medicine because it would bring so much more in life. There are so much in life that needs to be figured out. Not just the disease, but the life of people that revolves around it. Remember it will teach you more in life, let you be more selfless, more humane. That is all for now.
