There is a call to be optimistic for you and for me, to think, to be creative and to live one’s life. Being positive is a good quality and it’s every human being’s desire to be optimistic. The one main path that leads to optimism is the success or failure we have in our lives. What we fail to realize though, is that failure too helps us to know what mistakes we have committed and correct them.
Success or failure paves the way only if we have the courage to try a new thing. Many a times we think that this is not our cup of tea and we try to walk away from things, sometimes we try to do certain things and fail. If we visualize clearly we can find these attitudes in people.
·Those who don’t try new things at all because they are scared of change.
·Those who try and fail and never try again.
·Those who do not try because others said that s/he is not capable of it
·Those who try and discover new thing and new interests.
A person in his early days was a failure and had no idea of what he wanted to become in the future. He thought that the time will lead him forward. The boys who were with him reached high places and had accomplished many things, but that person remained there just because he was too lazy to do anything. One day he was made the president of a club by a professor, and there came a change in his life. He had to be an example to others as a president of the club. He started participating in many competitions and used all the chances he got, but, he failed at everything. The lesson he learnt was that he had many talents and never let up trying from then on. This is my story, and I’m happy to say that I was a failure, but now I’m not.
This is the world of competition and the one without skill is of no use. So how do I make myself useful? According to Sigmund Freud the conscious mind is just the tip of the ice berg but, the unconscious mind ¾ of the whole which is under water or hidden. Our personality is something as such. We cannot know something fully but we can explore it and try to find out what we have within us. One cannot swim the ocean without jumping into the sea; it’s just the matter of taking the first step. It doesn’t matter for what reason you take a step, it’s only necessary that you take a step. Have a little confidence and you can do it.
