Why being patient is tough?
Why is working hard continuously so challenging?
Why is honesty rare?
Why only a few people keep on giving while others stand at the receiving end?
Why is love so hard to find?
Why everyone cannot afford to be selfless?
That’s because each one of the above parameters leads to success. And success was never meant to be easy! There will be days of struggle. There would be so much hard work and perseverance, yet another day will end with a disappointment. But only if we are wise enough to keep going, then we reap the fruits of success. Only if we believe in ourselves then shall we witness it.
Why do people fail?
Because they stop believing in themselves! When we are positive then not even the worst of failures can stop us from trying. The real taste of success would only be known when our knee bleeds by falling down on the ground.
When you are determined to reach your goal, then whats going to hinder you?
And if something has hindered you, then why did u give up?
Wasn’t there an alternative?
How could you consider giving up as an option?
Think of the reason you started the journey at the first place. Rest everything will fall in place. Success is not a destination but a journey. The consistency of your efforts to reach your goal will reflect your success. The thin line between success and failure is, “While others think of it more often, you rise and make it happen!” And trust me that’s the only difficult part. The remaining will be taken care of eventually by your heart and mind.
Rightly quoted by Winston Churchill :
Success is not final, Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.
Do you remember your childhood stories? When parents were like, “Study a little more, you will get better marks !” or “Wake-up a little early tomorrow, there is the maths paper and you have not practiced algebra at all !” Did you ever realized what all did you trade-off. Some hours of sleep, a chance of watching a good movie on television, a very crucial episode of your daily soap, an extra hour of playing outdoor or simply an evening stroll with your siblings to eat pani-puri. During childhood days, no one tends to realize the importance of choosing one thing above the other. You either listen to your elders or you don’t. When you obey someone, you are a disciplined child and when you don’t you are stubborn and precisely your future is dark. So, we really do not have much choices at least before 12-16 years of age.
But as we grow up, the perspective changes. You start wondering, if am trading-off some extra hours of sleep to reach office on time, is it worth it? Am I getting paid enough for my sacrifice? If no, then why do I do it? To pay my bills? To have enough money to party on a weekend with friends? We go days without giving Mom a call from our side. Probably spending that time on a power-point presentation. Evidently its a trade-off we decide, unlike our childhood days when we did not have much freedom to choose. Is there a possibility to retain back our energy after long office hours by talking to an old friend on phone? Probably there is ! But shit, I have to attend a Skype meeting with a client after office. May be I will crack this deal. Will bag a decent incentive. I can plan a vacation to Bali with the amount. Yes, that is how “wise-decisions” sound like. Yes, that is exactly how a trade-off sounds like !
