I would start this blog by writing, How blessed are we to have this life. We all want to have a Perfect life. when things not happen the way we plan, we get tensed, disappointed and stressed. Today the world has become very competitive and we all want to success. Since childhood we are taught that Failure is a bad thing. Failures are not Bad.
Yes! Failures are not good. But if you fail that does not mean failures are bad.
Failure is an opportunity for us to come back with more force. Giving your best. It's an opportunity to lean and make things right. It is a real test of you. As I believe, you cannot be defeated, it's just that you give up before winning.
Winning and losing does matter. But what matters more is the journey that leads you to Win or Lose. If you win look back and learn from what you did right and if you lose do look back and learn from what you did wrong.
Let me not sound like a great girl who has a perfect life and the one who is not effected by failure. I too get effected by failures. Here is a real life Incident to tell you that failures really bad. It is an incident that took place a few days back
I went for an interview and let me admit I was confident as I was well prepared for it. As I sat for the interview, the interviewer questioned me something that took him with surprise or re-phrase is this way that it was sometime I was not expecting. It went the way I never imagined. Then something strange happened. While I was still speaking when the interviewer stopped me in middle to say," I will not hire you"
It all got over. I thanked him and left. I really can't explain what it felt like. I was holding my tears and walked out of premises. I wanted to scream and cry. Something was choking me. I would not lie, Yes I cried when I came back home. I cried like a small kid. My entire career came in front of my eyes. My failures, success, promotions,awards everything.
Next I washed my face, took a pen and paper to write what went wrong. I did realize that should have taken feedback from the interviewer. However, I called a friend who is a Human Resource Manager and asked for her help in reviewing my interview taking her suggestions too. I learned from this incident and moved on.
Today as I writ this blog I feel that the incident has helped me grow stronger.
Coming back to failures, they are the strong pillars on which the success stories are laid. I cannot be everything but can become Something. Do not be ashamed of you failures. I am not.
Stand strong because the day we failed is the day when we learned something new. Always remember you are Special. Do no compare yourself with any one. Not everyone will love you but not everyone will hate you. Failing in not negative but negativity is failure.. Positive energy can convert your failure in Success.
Let's not wish for a perfect life because it will and cannot be perfect. Instead wish for beautiful life because life is and always will be beautiful
