Failure: First Step towards Success
Now that the board results are out, many children are being affected with the outcome of results. But in general, parents get affected more than the kids with the results as the kids could not match up to their high expectations.
Mere a single board exam can’t be the ultimate parameter to test the talent of any individual. Many such exams follow over a carrier span of every student’s life. Thus the out of a single exam can’t be the litmus paper to test anyone’s intelligence.
So courageously accept your failure and assure yourself that this is not the end of your carrier or the last opportunity in your lifetime but this is best period to improve yourself to perform better in future life. If failure have been that bad, we would never had great scientists, researchers or successful persons in our country like Ratan Tata, Dhirubhai Ambani, Sachin Tendulkar etc. It is just a matter of perception that changes the world around us and not our marks ultimately. Failure does not stop anyone from doing what he / she is capable of doing in life.
Every individual possess some unique quality in him /her. Some one could be good in music, other one could be better in sports or cooking or someone could have a great business acumen.
This minor setback should not refrain you to explore hidden qualities that you possess naturally within you. The obstacles coming across should be considered as a fuel to push ourselves harder towards the goal. Obstacles can be taken as a fuel to work harder when we are lost and at the edge of quitting our goal. Obstacles can act as a fuel for us to think big when nothing is going right. They could act against the frowns to bring smiles on the faces.
If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you!
Remember, your attitude matters more than your grades!
