Happiness flies around you and disappear.
Paulo Coelho said," When you want to achieve something, the
universe conspires to help you in achieving it"
Some sort of this thing happened to me in 2012.
There was a "All Pakistan Essay Competition" in my scool for
which teachers were selecting students.
My English subject teacher chose me and I really want to know why
she selected me?
Before going for competition a meeting was decided to take place
among our principal and participants. Principal was checking the
credibility of students for which he was asking questions to all
participants. Suddenly he turned towards me and asked me to give
the meaning of a word that I had never heard.

On the result day when after the announcement of consolation and

to get any prize.
And suddenly announcer called my name as second position
According to Paulo Coelho it was a beginners luck and
No planning, no preparation only a winning soul and quest of
achieving my goal.
That day I learnt a thing that never lose hope in your life, life
is incredible and try to make most of it.
