Thus I wanted to share this experience of mine which I recently experienced. I keep releasing my experiences because a senior lecturer of mine told me once, “Try to share your encouraging lessons as much as possible because you might be helping someone going through a similar situation". Like most people every time I made a mistake; I kept pondering over it. What happened in the process was that I used to roam around with a frown face thinking about the mistake all the time and consequently; all people around me got only negative vibes. So I learnt to let go off the mistakes but the learning. Easier said than done of course! But then that’s the mantra or the cornerstone to be followed when we are trapped in such kind of adverse situations.
I have learnt it eventually that it is not about putting a full stop; it’s all about the semi colon in your life. Defeat can be debilitating; crashing down the confidence. However the same defeat provides the platform to learn from mistakes. Even today when I feel defeated I run through all my past defeats and the successes that emerged from the leanings of those expensive losses. Sometimes it may so happen that you are trying to succeed at something, and greener pastures await you elsewhere. If that is so, let’s accept it. Focus your energies towards areas more relevant to you.
An interesting fact that I am dying to share is quoted below. While browsing through the net; I got this and it absolutely blew off my mind.
The winner of the Miss Diva 2013 pageant, Manasi Moghe, was one of the contestants at the Femina Miss India 2013 pageant, where she did not make it even to the top 10. Had she lost hope and sat back in defeat, would she be wearing her coveted tiara today? She did not lose her belief in herself. In fact, she went around asking her grooming experts, “Where do you think I missed out? Do tell me please, because I want to work on this.” And that’s the killer attitude that got her where she is today.
