Often when we fail, we are surrounded by the clouds of disappointment. If the failures keep on coming continuously, we feel worthless and hopeless. The clouds of unhappiness let us down and make us feel absolutely hollow and insignificant. We do not realize that there is a silver lining to every cloud. We do not understand that the journey has just begun; it will take us to our destination. Enjoy the failures as there won’t be any after we succeed! We can’t give up just because we failed once, or twice. There are several reasons why we should not give up:
1. Because you are worthy: You are valuable because a job, or an interview or an exam doesn’t determine your worthiness. There is much more to you than just an exam. And who knows that if you practice and try again you’ll ace in the same exam in which you failed. So you are valuable in all situations, in all scenarios no matter what?
2. Everyone is special: As mentioned above your worth doesn’t get diminished by a fact that you couldn’t clear up some exam. You are you, you are good in something. Maybe not this, maybe something else.
3. Nobody else can be in your place: Only you know the pain of not getting something you wanted; only you know how much you deserve it. So none of your relatives or friends or criticizers can be in your place and understand the pain. Never give up hope because of that. Keep on trying, if that is what you want. If that is what you have to do.
4. Your parents love you: What people don’t realize is that their parents love them, no matter what, they will always be on their side. They know that you are worthy and you will do good. If not this then something else, they always believe in you and trust me whatever you do, in the end, you will make them proud, and they know that.
5. Everyone succeeds in the end: If not this then something else. A brick lying on the floor can be of no use to the carpenter, so he won’t pick it up, but it is of much use to a mason and he’ll certainly pick it up.
Falling down is easy, almost every individual taste the bitter taste of failure more than once in their life, however, getting up is not easy, and those who get up after falling down every time, they definitely make a difference.
