Being positive is not that difficult. But we find it really difficult to accept this.
Generally, every time we face difficulties, first thing we do is, ’Crib.’ We keep on complaining about almost everything that is not going our way.
Same are applicable for the studies. First we complain about lack of good educational institutes. Then we lament on the fees that seem to reach the sky by creating big black holes in our pockets, leaving us marooned in the milky-way of inflation. Next we go vocal about awful study facilities. This gives excuses for poor marks and results. From campus placement to the poor internet connectivity, we keep on cribbing.
Let’s us look at the other side of this story. There are people who don’t complain. They focus on the task in hand. Their aim is to get best out of every situation as they squeeze out opportunities out of the odds. They know the tricks and ways to win the battle and the wars with flying colors.
Need instances? Surly, you need them. Look around and watch. Let’s have a look –
- They have done it together. Raju (18) and Brajesh (19) are sons of Uttar Pradesh-based daily wage labourer. They have cracked the entrance examination to the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology this year i.e. 2015.
- A slum boy of Bhaktapukur in Kharagpur, Monoranjan Bera, proved that determination and dedication can drive away all odds. Bera secured 50th rank in IIT entrance exam (JAM 2012) for admission in the joint MSc-PhD program.
- Weathering odds, son of Autorickshaw driver 17 year old Abhishek Kumar from Ranchi cracked IIT entrance examination JEE Advanced 2013 with rank 4731.
Do you still think cribbing and complains stand a good chance to win the war? Think again.
