Not only in study, he is very good in other curricular activities too. He takes part in sports, competition, painting, quiz etc and score in the top position. In parents meeting in school Stephan parent feels proud when they listen his good qualities and good performances. Due to this they take care of all his need of study and of any other things, they don’t think to let him down for anything. Stephan father bring him all things he need in home for all purpose like to study, to paint, to play etc because they don’t want to send him out of home. Infect Stephan has lots of things his father bring him which other boys of his age group will not even know about. Stephan have all updated things, he has branded toys from abroad, best story book and all painting tools like canvas paper, different types of colours like oil colour, water colour etc because he don’t want to let any of the interest of Stephan down. Stephan has more interest in drawing, sketching and painting. Stephan’s father is very dedicated to Stephan; he wants to make his son perfect in all aspects. As Stephan grows, father teaches him lessons of life. Stephan father is very inspirational person, he inspires people around him by his speech, and he has very strong and powerful communication skill. He can attract anyone by his talk.

Stephan’s mother is also very dedicated to him like, her life is all for Stephan. Stephan school timing is very early, but Stephan mother regularly send him school on right timing with making healthy fresh breakfast for him and make his uniform perfectly neat and clean, while other mothers usually not do like this they give their children readymade food they don’t want to work at early morning. Stephan mother never make him disappointed for anything, she fulfils all his requirements and needs he have. The interest of painting of Stephan arises due to his mother because his mother in free time tells him some stories with the help of pictures made by her. Stephan mother has also very much interest in painting from her childhood but she can’t give so much time in it so she try to fulfill her dream of painting via her son, with this the interest of painting arises in Stephan, and since he starts making painting with perfection. When Stephan father know he has this interest of painting then he start his tution class where Stephan learn and meet with some great painter. This all happen in the age of six to twelve. And as he is smart enough to catch anything, he learns very well in small period about good painting, drawing and sketching.

Time passes and Stephan grow young under the shade of his parents, and reached at the stage where he completed his schooling with top scoring. His parents feel very proud on him, when he becomes the star of the school. All his teachers, relatives congratulate him for his first success of his life. Stephan is also very happy and he thanks his parent and gives all the credits to father-mother for all his success. In the recess time after examination, Stephan and his father mother are now discussed for his higher study and decided to send him to boarding school for his higher study where students have to live in hostel. Everything is planned and set now; all are busy in packing of Stephan. The place where they send Stephan is very far from his home.

It’s the day when first time Stephan has to face all the things alone without help of father and mother. Stephan’s mother start crying at the time when Stephan leaving home. Stephan father is also very worried and stressed from inside that how he will manage all alone but, he don’t show on his face because he know, if he seems to be stressed for Stephan, then he also become tensed. So, Stephan father show that he is fine and happy to send him far from him for higher study. At that time Stephan father told him some line about life that is “there are two phase in everyone’s life and everyone have to go through that two phases of life, the one who do struggle in initial phase he will spend his final phase with comfort and happiness while the one who run from struggle of initial phase he later in final phase have to do struggle. Because without struggle life is not complete and if completed then its without happiness. And my dear son here it’s started your initial phase of life.” Stephan takes his father’s word very deeply in his heart. Stephan mother is crying continuously. Stephan hug her mother and make her believe that he must be fine and take care of himself there. With very hard emotion Stephan parent send him to hostel, his mother cry that whole day and father is very worried about him. The home is very silent that day when he goes.

First day in hostel is like hell for Stephan, the days there are very stressful. There they have to share one room with four boys since, there is no privacy. There are lots of boys who are very rich and are spending their life very easily via outing and making fun all day. Stephan likes the electric gadgets very much. He saw the gadgets his roommates used. In hostel the life is very different from home. There is nobody wakes you up in early morning like mother use to do in home. Nobody is there to told you what to do or what to not, like father in home. Stephan can live his life as he want like other boys do but he not use to do this. He tries to maintain the routine as he has in home. He has always the words of his mother and father in his mind all the time. His roommates try to make out some bad habits to him but he never go through that.

As the time pass Stephan go to higher classes and his requirements also increases, like he now need more study materials and study related things. In corporate world, the time of recession comes; everyone is very much tensed about their job. Similar here in Stephan’s home, his father is also very depressed about his job because as the day comes his money requirement also increases in home and for Stephan. He works hard in office for overtime because he know he is the only support of his family, without his job no one go ahead. This time is very tough for all the three. Stephan there in hostel sacrifices for so many things like he sift in cheap hostel, there food is not good so he not even eat completely, maintenance there is also not good. Boys there are not interested in study they only spend their time in watching movies and outing and fun. Stephan now calls his home once or twice in a week to talk his parents while before he call daily twice and talk all about the activities of whole day. He go college by foot in place of taxi. From all possible things he tries to save money. When he saw his friends use very costly equipments his heart also demanding for that but his mind told him no to that things because he know the financial condition of the family. Stephan sacrifices in all possible steps. Not only Stephan, his mother and father also sacrifice so many things, they use to eat only two times in a whole day. Since they try to save money for Stephan study, and there Stephan also does the same to not be burden on his family. Stephan requires many things but he find the way without that and managed very well. Since this is the time for so many sacrifices really for Stephan and he does it truly. This stage of his life teaches him so many lessons of life to him. He spends his time in so many difficulties and facing them all alone, nobody is there who lessen his sorrow. Sometimes Stephan go to a park or garden to spend time alone there and in between thinking he cries deeply from his heart and ask question from God about the period that how much more time he has to face these things and when all being right. He cries alone and cry with heart with blood tears and be very sad.

When Stephan studied in college, a multinational company comes for campus selection. Stephan also participates in it but he is not selected and after this he feels like lost of everything. He thinks this is the only way to come out of all the problems of facing difficulties financially but he not get selected, he break deeply from inside. Stephan father told him that “my dear you don’t lose anything if not selected even that company loose you, so you don’t worry and don’t leave hope and hard work and you must successes.” In few months, other company comes and in this Stephan gets selected. Finally he go for training and then to job. Stephan work very sincerely and be very friendly with his coworkers. Very soon he gets promotions and be the manager of that company. From here Stephan now help his family financially. Stephan parents feel very proud again as usual. Stephan’s family condition is now very strong and on top among all his other relatives. This all happen due to hard work and all sacrifices Stephan made and also the precious tears he have to flow.

Now Stephan is happy in his life with earning lots of money but still there is some in satisfaction. Stephan when settled well then he think to reborn his creativity artist and want to start his paining again. So he started making great pictures in weekend or in holidays. Stephan share his painting socially and once one of Stephan’s friend suggest Stephan to take participate in a international painting competition when he saw his pictures. Stephan becomes ready for this and then he spends his most of time to make a fantastic painting for competition. Finally Stephan’s hard work let him to win. He wins the international competition of painting and this make Stephan a well know painting artist internationally. Somehow, a viewer sees that painting of Stephan and impressed very much with that painting and expresses his willing to buy that painting. After long procedure Stephan’s first painting get purchased in one lakh dollar. After this Stephan become more famous. Stephan now become a very known painting artist, from different countries people buy his paintings. Stephan is highlighted and grown as a very fantastic drawing artist in his own country too. He becomes a celebrity, every times when his new painting comes in international market, press and media becomes ready for Stephan’s interview and publish the inspiration of Stephan’s painting or the story behind the painting. Stephan’s father - mother this times proud a tonne for his grand success. After this Stephan and his family live together rand spend a royal luxurious life. Stephan always thanks his parents for all his success, he thanks his mother for all sacrifices she made and also thanks his father for all the lessons of life he teach him.

So, here we can see that sacrifice never go blank, it must give you the ripe fruit of great taste, may be it will take time but we have to never fluctuate from our aim we have and don’t disappoints from the troubles comes in life. Because life is like a wave which sometimes comes up and sometimes go down it will never be same all time, but its all upto you that how would you handled it and how you go across it. Stephan struggle hard in his initial phase of life and now live happily in his final phase, if he do same as his roommates have done in initial phase then he must have to do struggle now in final phase. This line of Stephan’s father is completely proved by Stephan. So, don’t be afraid of doing struggle and sacrifices, because these things make you odd one out of the rush, it will give you a different personality. “Only you are the one who will make or decide your own destiny.” And this requires struggle and sacrifices. The one who do will must get the success. So All the Best………………….
