What a far-fetched title right? But here you are still reading this entry, probably feeling as miserable like me. I feel stupid. That’s what’s going on your head for quite some time now. Why am I so stupid? I know I am better than this. I used to be one of the best in high school. So how did I sink to the bottom in college? Then you compare yourself to everyone else.. You see how all your peers are doing great. Except you. It’s like a slap on the face every single time. You work your ass for for every single shit but the amount of time, effort and tears you have given, still does not produce the result you desire…. or deserve.
You end up asking God, “What did I do to deserve this kind of punishment?” Then you start doubting him, leading yourself into the temptation of cheating your way through.
But that is not the answer. After reading how science makes us stupid and watching the video below, I realized that failure is not the end.
We think we aren’t good enough, but the thing is even the best of us fall down sometimes. It’s a hard thing to accept, really.
Forgetting to remember that….
We have to embrace failure. Everyone goes through it. It’s something normal. We feel scared and hurt, but every failure is a ticket to success. It depends on how we see things.
As one of the most amazing professors I had the pleasure of having puts it, “Life is unfair. Life sucks. But what matters most is how you deal with it. You either live with bitterness, or see failure as a grace to grow.”
Another great quote, which summarizes this whole entry is: “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”
