“Today is my 3rd heart anniversary. I received the gift of life on 2nd June 2016. Though the first year was quite tumultuous it has been a relatively smooth journey for the past two years.
I will forever remain indebted to Dr. KR Balakrishnan, Dr. Suresh Rao and his team, Dr. Ravi and the doctors and the support staff of Fortis Malar Hospital, Chennai for giving me a second lease of life. May God bless them to save many more and bring joy and happiness in their lives.
I express my deep gratitude to the deceased donor and the family for making all this possible. As a policy matter, the identity of the donor is not revealed to the recipient.
God has been very kind so far and I pray to HIM to keep his blessings on me as it is still a long journey ahead.
If you want to experience a life of victory, you must develop endurance to overcome adversity. That means having the stamina to stand through any storm that life brings your way, as well as the tenacity to triumph even in moments of great turbulence. You must be unshakeable even in moments of uncertainty.
You must realize that difficulty is not designed to derail you, but to develop you. A positive mindset is essential.
My heart almost failed on three separate occasions.
The hardest was when I was told to go in for heart transplant as there was no hope of any recovery with conventional treatment.
While some would lie down and let their dreams float away, I knew that I could achieve mine. I felt the greatest urgency to get up and keep trying. If I would have just given up in my disappointment, I would have never lived the life of my dreams.
Trials will occur in life, but endurance requires you to never stop trying. Trials are one of the greatest teaching tools of life. I am so glad that I bounced back. Never become defined by the insurmountable. Dare to do the impossible!
You cannot become enslaved by disappointments. You must realize that every disappointment is being engineered for your destiny.
Life can get us down, but we can pick ourselves back up. We must learn and not be limited by the experiences of our lives. We are strong, and we all have a dreamer inside of us. Anything is possible if we are willing to persevere.
Overcoming adversity is the secret of champions. Through having the right mindset, not making excuses or taking “no” for an answer, having faith, and being energized by success, you can overcome anything that life has to throw at you.”
