Mangaluru: This morning a received an image on my Whatsapp, where a Baby bear is trying to follow its Mother, where both are trying to wade through the heavy snow, in order to reach the surface on top of the mountain- while the Mom Bear makes it easy to the top, the baby bear after many attempts, finally reaches the top. And believe me when I tell you, it holds true every time you attempt to succeed. An outstanding quality of a winner is the power to hold on despite the most adverse circumstances. Sure, you are going to fail a lot. Not every endeavour is going to be successful the first time. Some might take forever to succeed.
Sure, these big words are inspirational but anyone who has ever experienced failure knows that quotes are not what are required and if anything, they only make us feel worse. It is only in retrospect that we understand what these inspirational words were trying to tell us.
Failure is part of the journey. Of course, not every expedition we take ends in success but does that mean we stop trying? There is a Bollywood movie that is entirely dedicated to dealing with failure in exams and one of its famous dialogues goes like. Success ke baad ka plan sabke paas hai, lekin agar galti se fail ho gaye toh failure se kaise deal karna hai koi baat hi nahi karna chahta.
Translation: Everyone has a plan after achieving success, but if you fail by mistake then how you need to deal with failure no one talks about that -Chhichhore. Failure is part of life, that is how we learn the importance of hard work and success.
But there is such a big stigma attached to failing that even the mere thought of it gives us goosebumps. But why? Be it exams, presentation or job, we all have experienced setbacks. But enough preaching! During this gloomy time- first the pandemic and lockdown then all the other tragedies and now the examthis year sure looks like it is the worst. So, let us take a look at some of the famous stories and how failure was as integral part of all of them.
This famous TV-show was almost cancelled before it was first aired. When he was 15, Jack Andraka had a crazy idea. He would create a diagnostic test for Pancreatic Cancer that was better than the tests developed by scientists, research labs and billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies.
Jack wrote a proposal to develop a better test.
The th research lab — at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore — accepted him. At the lab Jack Andraka developed a Pancreatic Cancer test times better and 26, times less expensive than the current test. Elizabeth Blackwell was rejected from 29 medical schools.
Try! try! till you succeed
So, she went to visit the schools in person. She refused. Blackwell was accepted by mistake by Hobart College then Geneva Medical Collegeand she matriculated. Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman to receive a medical degree in the U. The HBO magnum opus is perhaps has broken every possible record in terms of popularity. But there was a huge possibility of the show never getting made.
Try try and try again until you succeed
Finally, the makers of the changed some of the cast re-shot the whole pilot and it was only then that HBO decided to give it a try. Of course, what happened next created history and GoT went on to won a total of awards and nominations in various. After a dozen publishers rejected her manuscript one finally agreed to publish it.
These above-mentioned anecdotes form a very very small part of the list of famous people who failed, some even multiple times, before they went onto do great things. It is how you gear up after that is what matters. No one will remember how much you scored in a class test or what was your AIR in an exam. However, what they will remember is that you did not let it deter you from your chosen path and kept going till you reached your destination.
