All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
– Walt Disney
It is a very interesting thing how we face situations and challenges in Life. Walt Disney, the creator of Mickey has his own way. If I remember right, it was the same man whose work was ridiculed and made fun of. No one would believe him. And now he says – The only time I pick up a pen and paper is either to sign a cheque or an autograph!
Most times, adversity in itself is an amazing challenge. Naturally we tend to look at the side which hurts us, makes us feel bad. But we tend to forget that it is these bruises which make a man.
I agree, UPSC is a sea of challenges, one daunting than the other and sometimes it doesn’t work our way even if we give it all. But sometimes it probably helps just to stop for a moment, look at it from the outside and it points to you what you are looking at. It is the dream, the passion and in essence it is YOU! You aren’t done till you give it all you got 🙂
