Isabelle is a name of a young lady who will be the main character throughout the story.  When she was 11 years old, she moved to a new school in a new town.  A school that she never thought would be the worst school ever. She needed to face new friends, new teachers, new environment and new enemies. It’s from the school that she learnt the word ‘enemies’.  There are 4 classes in that school and she was placed in the 1st class which all the students in it feel like they were the superior.  At first, everyone was so nice to her.  Everything changed when she got the last position in her class which meant, her result was the lowest in her class.  Started from that moment, she was being isolated by everyone in her class.  Some boys teased her and some girls were gossiping about her. It was ludicrous. Poor girl. Then, she realized something.  She talked to herself. She was determined to take everything that had happened as a challenge and she wanted to prove to everyone that she was not a loser.  She studied hard and she passed the final examination with flying colors.  In fact, her result was much better than some girls who had ever talked behind her back.  They were ashamed and they could not say more. 

From the story above, why do you think that the young girl could achieve what she wanted? If and only if she was not being isolated and she had lots of friends even if she got the last position, do you think that her result would be better?  Do you think she would be so determined to improve herself if she was in a comfort zone? The answer is NO.  Most of the people in this world tend to be comfortable and love staying in their comfort zone.  However, if something bad or unpleasant incident fly through their life, they would be motivated to terminate the unpleasant incident.  When you step out from your comfort zone, you can succeed if you walk in correct pathway.

Things happen for a reason.  Not every unpleasant incident will forever be unpleasant.  Sometimes, the unpleasant incident is a stepping stone for a pleasant incident to take place.  It’s you who could turn the ‘unpleasant’ to ‘pleasant’ and do remember, sometimes if there is no ‘unpleasant’ there would be no ‘pleasant’.  It’s you that can decide to change whatever is happening in your life.

Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine…….
