Ofcourse all of them, but I majorly give credit to my critics who had written me off. I made a bridge by the stones hurled at me. They pushed me to my limit and beyond. They allowed me to block out all negativity in order to pursue my goals, helped me achieve my dreams. So thank you to my doubters, to my critics. I couldn't have done it without you.
Back in late seventies, people were not as much exposed nor felt the need to enhance their image.Academic qualification was the most important thing which was taken into consideration. However, as people started globetrotting and commerce hit the international market, it becomes crucial to get out of the shell and match up to the global standards in every possible way. This included personal packaging as well. During my training in the army, all officers had to go through a special course called OLQ (Officers like Quality), in which we were taught all kind of etiquette and social graces. I was very keen on starting an etiquette and personality enhancement program. So to fill this gap between the academic degree and image management, I decided to become a personality development coach. My journey goes back to 1984 where I started training people on personality development with just six students onboard, which has now spread worldwide with countless students who’ve been trained by me. I have now ventured into Beauty Pageant coaching and run an institute by the name of RIGAHAUS- RITA GANGWANI’S HOUSE OF PERSONALITY TRANSFORMATION, where I train Boys, girls, and kids to enter the pageant world. I am proud to say so many of my students have brought laurels to the country.
In my early years, I was extremely self-conscious of my short stature and did not believe that I was capable of achieving anything grand. My height was my biggest challenge!! It was one of my teachers, who encouraged me to discover my innate value and potential, and not be swayed by those who wrote me off as being short and incapable. The exact words which inspired me to change my life were “Do not make anyone’s opinion your own reality. What matters is your own opinion of yourself!!” These words proved to be the catalyst for me to appear for the Army Medical Board competitive exams, which I cleared with flying colors. I joined the MNS Corps of the Indian Army in 1977, stood first in the All India Merit list and was awarded the President’s Gold Medal along with the Air Force Station (Bangalore) trophy as the best cadet. I was one of the first lady officers from Himachal Pradesh in the MNS Corps. Once I wore my uniform, the same people who used to laugh at me, changed their opinion about height. They realized that its not your color, height etc which take you to success….its what fuel you have inside that matters.
Getting into the army was the best thing that ever happened to me. As a civilian teenager, I had never learnt the meaning of routine, but in army, ‘D” is the biggest word – discipline, determination, dedication and drive. I was taught time management, life management, self management and of course emotion management along with my regular studies of MNS. It really wasn’t easy back there. The training was rigorous, so much so, there were many girls who left the forces midway. However I stuck on.”Success doesn’t really come easy, and to get into the Indian army is like cracking a tough nut. ‘Give- up’ is a word that doesn’t really exist. We were taught that, if one has to achieve what they want to in earnest; they have to ready themselves to take on the challenges that are going to be doled out. After all, difficulties only make one stronger and more accepting to the flip side of success. My hard work paid, as I stood first in All India Merit List during all three years of my training. It was not only the biggest achievement for me, but for the entire unit. Never in the history of the unit did someone do so well.

→ Patience is an exercise of self-control that shows you can handle life when times get tough.

The wisest, most loving, and well-rounded people you have ever met are likely those who have been shattered by heartbreak and Failure. Yes, life creates the greatest humans by breaking them first. Their destruction into pieces allows them to be fine-tuned and reconstructed into a masterpiece. Truly, it’s the painstaking journey of falling apart and coming back together that fills their hearts and minds with a level of compassion, understanding, and deep loving wisdom that can’t possibly be acquired any other way. Life is too short to let fear make big decisions for you. He knows the water best who has waded through it. Failures make you stronger …. Don’t ever be afraid of being broken.
