A New Beginning


Hello and welcome to ExamPundit. Here is an awesomely inspiring article shared by Aries Fire. 

A NEW BEGINNING
(“ I PROMISE , I WILL NOT GIVE UP TILL I SUCCEED ”)

“To make your dreams come true, climb so high up in the clouds, so that you don’t hear the world shouting “COME DOWN “

In 1914, Thomas Edison, at age 67, lost his factory, which was worth a few million dollars, to fire. It had very little insurance. Edison watched his lifetime effort go up in smoke and said, "This is very important disaster. All our mistakes are burnt up. Thank God we can start anew." In spite of disaster, three weeks later, he invented the phonograph. WHAT A WAY OF ATTITUDE TOWARDS LIFE

Hennery fords bankrupt at the age of 40yrs and many examples

So what u think these all are failures in life, no they face failures 100 times and stand up 200 times, and you know what is most difficult work physical or mental, answer is physical now question is that have u work like a labour or u sell vegetable in morning to evening your answer is no, they work for one time food they work for children schooling, only because they are uneducated and they don’t want future generation also face this condition. So we are lucky enough we only have to study, we are lucky in case of parents.

SUPPOSE ON YOUR STUDY/SUCCESS YOUR WHOLE FAMILY DEPENDS AND IF YOU FAIL SO WHAT WILL YOU DO,   YOU KNOW WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN OUR LIFE IS OUR PARENTS AND OUR LOVEONES. AND WHAT WILL BE A BIG DAY FOR OUR LIFE:

WHEN  YOU  WILL SEE HAPPINESS , SMILE ON OUR PARENTS , BROTHERS , SISTERS FACE , AND THE REASON BEHIND THAT IS YOU  “  I THINK FOR THIS MOMENT WE WILL FORGET OUR 10000 FAILURES / STRUGGLE .

Your one positive/negative decision changes your life and also ruined your life

Most of us are struggling from many years, and most of us fail from very marginal points, because we concentrate on output not a fundamental issue, that this story tells

Once upon a time there were two men in a wood-chopping contest.  They were tasked with chopping down as many trees in the forest as they could from sun-up to sun-down.  The winner would be rewarded with both fame and fortune.
From morning till noon, both men steadily chopped and chopped.  By noon they were neck and neck, but then one man took a break and stopped chopping.  The other man saw this and thought to himself: “The lazy fool, he’s probably taken a break for lunch. He’s given me a chance to get ahead of him and I will without doubt win this contest!”
A while later the man got back to work. As the day continued he chopped more trees than his hard-working (and hungry) competitor and by mid-afternoon he had taken a clear lead.
When sundown came, the man who had taken the break at noon had chopped almost twice as many trees as the other man, who was drenched in sweat, hungry and exhausted.
“How did you beat me?” he asked puzzled. “You were lazier than I and even took a break for lunch!”
“Ah,” said the other man, “I did take a break, but it was during that break, that I sharpened my axe.”

Moral of the story
Taking time out to sharpen your axe is worth many hours of hard toil.

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”  Abraham Lincoln
So clearly shows that the issue , we focus on to build tajmehal directly  but we neglect the raw material, foundation. Why because only of our overconfidence  “ muje toh aata hai yeah , are fhir se wahi padna hai kya leave it pada toh hua hai, are iss ques ko toh mai exam mai chutki mai kar lunga and many more excuses .( if your  axe is not sharpen so how u cut so many trees.)
““I WIIL DO” THIS IS CONFIDENCE,”ONLY I WILL DO” THIS IS OVER CONFIDENCE’

“Once a day teacher ask the students how will you shorten this 10 cm lines , out of 40 students 39 students rub the line and make it shorter , but only one and last student draw a another line of 15cm .”(This makes a difference between loser and winner)
You can’t kill your competitor knowledge but u exceeds/ gains your knowledge than your rival and this is only in your hand.

Live like a child
Have u seen a small child or have u remember your childhood  stage  ,   remember as a child  if we want /like some toys ,chocolate  so at any cost whether it is right or wrong for us , and until we try that at last our parents purchase for us .  This is child stubborn behaviour.  and many more example  whether it is homework , drawing  they trying and trying until they complete the work  why BECAUSE CHILDREN DOESNT CARE ABOUT SUCCESS AND FAILURE  , they only enjoy their work. Unfortunately now days we are so busy in life problem that we forget that small child who is always hide in our body. So what:
So  again one more time we trying to live our life like a children ,  show your stubborn behaviour against your aim/goal/dreams  and  put your continuous effort  until  your dreams come true  , forget about success and failure ,  put your 100% in your study/work  ,  success comes with you automatically and with big salute and with rainbow colours .

Now come to our body regulator that is our around 3 pound BRAIN: let’s see how it is work
if you do not want to do any work / not willing to go somewhere / not willing to appear in paper our chota sa mind give you 1000 reasons that you are right, (like this work not for you, this place is boring, and this paper is very tough hamara toh sawaal hi nahi banta) and still continuous u never think aise aise wajah le ayega ki pucho mat.....
And if you want to do any work at any cost that our mind gives only one reason that is yes u will definitely crack it  
“if u want to success there is only one reason and if u want to give excuses there are 100 reasons”

मंजिल मिल ही जायेगी एक दिन भटकते भटकते ही सहीगुमराह तो वो हैं, जो घर से निकलते ही नही!
खुशियाँ मिल ही जायेगी एक दिन, रोते रोते ही सही !   कमजोर दिल के है वो , जो हँसने की सोचते ही नही!
पूरे होंगे हर वो ख्वाब , जो देखे हैं अंधेरी रातों मेंना समझा है वो ना समझेगा कभी , जो डर से पूरी रात सोते ही नही !
Don’t think about future , don’t think about months/ years , just concentrate on the twenty four hours in front of you and do anything what u can to get closer to where to want to be  and most important don’t look to your past ( you never  drive / walking if you looking to your back road )
Just concentrate on opportunities whether it is small or big  ,  and this is game of life ( your futures  generation future depends on you )  people think that you are failure but you understand the life game ,you understand failing in one examination doesn’t means fail in life game , nobody in this world  defeat you( including you) until you leave this life game ground. Your dream doesn’t have an expiration date. Take a deep breath and try again.
Life must go on whether you are happy or sad, whether you are winner or loser  , but your way of observation towards life change your whole life scenario...........
You know what the hurting word in our life is “if only I had given a little extra “and believe me this word pinches you whole of your life in day and night.

“””DON’T WORRY GOD IS NEVER BLIND TO YOUR TEARS, NEVER DEAF TO YOUR PRAYERS, AND NEVER SILENT TO YOUR PAINS. HE SEES, HE HEARS AND HE WILL DEFINATELY DELIVERS””.
“” AND DONT FORGET LATE IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN NEVER””

All of my friends who wins the battlefield a big congratulation for new life , and those who are still in the battlefield  only few lines to say :

“रख हौसला वो मंजर भी आयेगा , प्यासे के पास चलकर समंदर भी आयेगा !
थक कर बैठ ये मंजिल के  मुशफिर मंजिल भी मिलेगी, और मिलने का मजा भी आयेगा !”

Please never give up on your dreams its wait is little bit difficult but regret is forever
