Failure or achievement in one’s life will always be temporary; one can’t be assured that he will always be winner or loser. They are just like some wave pattern where one day you might witness the crest or trough of it. Crest signifies the good time of the wave and trough the other part of it. But both just signify the pattern of the wave which it follows. When studied this nature I discovered be it any, either crest or trough both has rise and fall in themselves and both touches peak value of it. It just that if in one’s the first half rising then other half is falling and in other its vice -versa. But what really important is the wave still progressing with all of its energy it has, hardly seems its worried about the pattern it has been asked to follow. This is how nature has designed it and taught us. Even the whole of universe works on the principles of relativity. Nothing will be absolute or permanent. But being temporary doesn’t make something matter any less, because it is due to crest and trough wave is able to propagate its energy. The point isn’t for how long or short, the point is that it happened.
Smile, because it has happened. These happenings will give you the most beautiful teacher of your life. Yes that beauty is “ EXPERIENCE “. Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing. Nothing that is worth knowing can be taught. People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves. And with every dig towards their findings the beauty gets more strengthen within them. Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.
But nothing comes free that doesn’t mean everything will only be placed or mapped against a price tag. Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. You need to screw up to learn. You need to experience to create greatness. Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be bloody-minded. Believe in the self. Argue with the world. And never forget that writing is as close as we get to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things — childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams, instants, phrases, parents, loves — that go on slipping , like sand, through our fingers. No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and more worthy.
