Sample Answer

Well, there are times in life where we face tough choices or predicaments that leave us confused in terms of decision calls. We always have someone or the other in our lives who may give us a piece of correct advice or help us with decision-making processes. I too have also faced a few dilemmas regarding my life choices from time to time.

One such time was when I had completed a year in my bachelor in engineering degree. I was tensed as I took up the course under parental pressure and it was not my first choice of career. In spite of my best efforts, I was unable to perform and score passing marks. I was at my wit’s end and thought about changing my course in order to opt for another one. Subsequently, I decided to speak to my maternal uncle about the issue. He has been a very supportive pillar all my life. He took note of my issue and knowing my aptitude for business studies, suggested me to opt for bachelors in business administration instead. I was always connected to him and he understood somehow, that I could do well in this field. I made up my mind and let my family know as well.

In the end, with his support, I changed my course and completed it with flying colors. Indeed, it was a great decision as it has turned around my life for the better. As a result of this decision, I was able to secure a well-paying job.
