The Story of success begins …
Maybe life isn’t about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it.~
The Bitter Truth of Life:
Death is not the opposite of life but a part of it. Similarly, failure is not the opposite of success but an essential part of it. As correctly quoted by Truman Capote ,”Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavour.”
So here it goes, a story to learn from…
So, the story is about an ordinary boy, who puts up in Palam, from a not so well-to-do family, named Abhishek Singh.
In our country, life offers many comforts to the children of a normal middle class family that he was denied of. For instance the comfort of petty cash or pocket money that the parents allow us with to make little additional expenses as per our will; Or to be able to enjoy an occasional meal at a restaurant along with the family; Also to have a trip or an outing during day offs; Plus to be able to focus on his/her studies without the feeling of anxiety, due to the obligation to end the hardship of the family that he shares with his father; Or to just eat, sleep and live a carefree life like the rest of his coetaneous comrades et cetera, life didn’t offer him even these basic conveniences, let alone the luxuries.
Furthermore, though he has a loving family,including his mother, father and a younger brother, they often end up in petty skirmishes due to adversities of life. Little love is scattered between them due to discontinuities in communication.
Setting goals that scare you and excite you at the same time:
Unfortunately, they had an unsatisfactory financial condition. So the family earnings weren’t enough to provide the younger son(his bro) schooling or even the basic education.
At this moment, he went through the most stressful conditions mentally, emotionally as well as physically.
This was the juncture of life standing at which most people either surrender or even commit suicide. But, despite all the prevailing unpleasant conditions,the same ordinary boy used the rural grid of his life as a stepping stone and built the stairs to success.
He chose not to simply stand by the gate of fate. He knew that no magic wand would arrive out of somewhere to change his circumstances. So, he decided to manage the chaos in his life. He set up goals that used to seem next to impossible to him and his family.
He completed his 12th grade and entered the college.
This is when in his life came a turning point!
The Turning Point
A Difficult Schedule
He has scheduled almost twenty four hours of his day to work.
His day starts with the exhausting bus journey from his home to the college. He walks most of the distances we cover by an e-rickshaw or some short distance commuting transport. This amounts to some extra savings which he uses to compensate his expenses like that of books. This is followed by the college timetable. As the college dismisses he rushes to the tuitions he take. He teaches the junior school students at institutes in three different batches at three different places one after the other without a beak. That ticks almost 8or9 in the evening, by the clock. Then he footslogs another 2.5km to reach the institute where he prepares for the entrance exams for a job in SSC or in Banking sector side by side.
Remember the steps to success are the steps of success!
Yes exactly the person reading this line
Get up right now so that you can build the person that you want to see yourself as, take the chance, make it to the edge, and do what is to be done to make way for your dream.
Take responsibility of your dreams, stand up for it and dare to take the risk because we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
As correctly quoted by Mark Twain ~ “20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do.”
