I reach out to the Youth and say...

A Story by Emaan Zahra Ijaz

Being a high achiever at school is the only way to a good and settled life in the future and that failure is completely  unacceptable, has been drilled into the minds of majority of our world's youth and it is not entirely wrong ... but it is not right either.

 

Factually, the world now is in need of creative minds more than anything else but it also needs people who work to their best of their abilities and this is where we need to think smart. Let’s get real, no one would want to hire a low- achiever , but that is the issue here. What if the one who got rejected to work as a lawyer because of his academic profile, if given a chance, could bring justice to the world. That student who wanted to research and find a cure for cancer but because of his educational background, no one would be ready to aid him in reaching his goals and now everyone blames the student of his own misery!

Kids hear adults say that failure is the worst thing they could ever have in their life, at least when they still go to schools. I say the opposite. Failure unlocks success. Each time you meet disaster on your doorstep, welcome it and resolve the issue instead of shunning it. Thomas Edison failed 100 times before the first bulb was lit and the 101st was his first success. Mark Zuckerberg was a college dropout, but he did not stop that from pursuing his goals. Failure is not evil, but failure without real goals is. So, as a student or anyone really, build yourself to work smartly, aim high, don't think of falling out but if you do then get back up. The world is a challenge itself and it'll keep changing to  the point where it's difficulty level rises, just like in video games, but you need to understand that what matters, in the end,just like any other brave protagonist would do and say ,what matters is your success and yours alone!

I agree with your philosophy.

We are raised to fear failure, to the point that once we do fail (school, work, relationships), we're frozen into shock... because we are not taught what to do once we experience failure.

So much details are provided on how to succeed, and minimum on how to cope/adjust/bounce back and grow through failure.

They say there is nothing to fear but fear itself. Fear of failure is often worse than the actual failure itself... because if we had been trained to realise that failure is normal, and can actually strengthen you as you grow to realise where you can improve and that you've kinda halfway succeeded because now you're more informed on what NOT to do... maybe we'd all have less anxiety attacks and chronic depression.

Thanks for this, I hope it helps people.

What modern society calls success is an illusion-- money, fame, power, none of these can ever bring happiness-- for they the feed only the ego, and happiness can only be found in the heart, and its eternal twin, joy, in the soul. The proof of this is the self-destructiveness of so many rich/famous people, in drugs, alcohol, even suicide like the actor Robin Williams. I learned this the hard way a long time ago when I tried to throw away my own life, but Something-- God, Allah, Buddha-- call it what you will-- gave me a 2nd chance, at both life and true happiness.
