All of us at this point in time are anxious about what is to come, what will happen next? Everyone is under the illusion that they are not doing well in life. The fear of being left behind has trapped us in its vicious claws. All of us want to be finest in everything we do, whether it is school, college or work and although, this ambition may be fruitful to an extent, it isn’t favourable for our mental health. And what we are left with is, believing that we are going nowhere in life. Every time failure stumbles upon our way we get sad and dejected and start considering trying not at all.
But that is not the solution. In this race of trying to achieve everything, we tend to forget that failure is also a part of success. It makes us aware of our mistakes, teaching us to not repeat them again. It makes us realize what we should and shouldn’t do in order to achieve our goals. As they say, “Failure is a stepping stone to success.”
So we need to take a deep breath and realize that it is okay to not be ahead of everyone all the time. We can’t always be running behind what we want. It is okay to stop, to calm down and to begin when we are ready again. What is not okay is to believe that we aren’t going to be successful. We shouldn’t lose hope. It is the only thing that keeps us going in this world where everyone keeps trying to pull each other down.
Maybe it is not the right time for us yet. Being jealous of the ones above us isn’t going to satisfy us or gratify us in any way. Just because someone is more successful than you in at present doesn’t mean that the scenario will not change. Time is the most powerful weapon of all. The tables can turn any moment.
We must always remember that, not everyone has the same story and that reality is far beyond what meets the eye. Hence, we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others because that isn’t going to result in anything other than ending up disturbing. Instead, what can be done to keep building our capabilities, is being focused on what we want to achieve and keep working for it. There’s a very popular saying, “You don’t need to be beautiful like her. You can be beautiful like you.” In the same way, you don’t need to be successful like them; you can be successful in your own way.
What we should always keep in mind is that we should never give up. No matter what happens, we should keep going. Despite how many roadblocks come our way, we need to keep our head held high and keep on working harder than ever. This is the only way that can ensure success.
