Sample Answer

A lot of conflict takes place inside our brains while making a decision. When we start suffering from the choice overload, we tend to avoid the efforts of making a correct decision. Hence, we start seeking suggestions from others.

Recently, I found myself standing on the crossroads and was unable to decide where to go. In that situation, I decided not to bear the burden of the crossroad questions alone. Therefore, in order to reduce that cognitive dissonance, I approached my father for his help.

I was working in a renowned Multinational Company as a manager. Although, I was drawing a handsome salary there, I was not feeling happy and contented as I always wanted to be a businessman. At that point in my career, leaving a stable job just to fulfill my dream seemed quite risky. I discussed my plan with my father and asked for his advice. I told him that I wanted to come back to my hometown for doing business. He motivated me and said that we get only one life to live our dreams. Moreover, he not only shown his belief in my entrepreneurial skills but also supported me financially to establish my own enterprise.

By the grace of God and my father’s blessings, I am running my business successfully. What is more, I am able to provide employment to hundreds of people. That one decision has changed my life completely and the credit goes to my father. It not only helped me to fulfill my individual responsibilities but social responsibilities as well.

Sample Answer

Dear Puneet,

I am writing to apologise for not being able to attend your farewell party. I felt very emotional after hearing the news of your transfer owing to the fact that we will no longer be sharing the same cabin.

The reason I will not be a part of the goodbye party is that my wife is hospitalised due to some minor illness. At this crucial time, she needs my support and attention completely. It will take around a week for her to recover.

Anyways, I wish you a great life ahead. I will never forget the time we have spent together. I have also learned a lot of things from you to become successful in life, like punctuality, perseverance and dedication. You have always been a great support and inspiration to me. We will keep in regular touch through phone and emails. Kindly share your new contact details as soon as possible.

Once again, please accept my sincere apologies.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours Sincerely,
