I totally get this.
It doesnot matter what happens to us. What really matters is what we do with what happens to us.
I have my own little victories to cherish. And I will list them here so that you also feel empowered.
I am listing them so that you can take a cue from the mindset that I hnaged from.
I always thought myself a victim and I progressively was becoming a victim.
But, I did gather my strength from the tiny victories I had to keep building and compounding my confidence to win at life.
1. Had a scare against English. I did my best to learn the language well. I am soooo proud of this.
You can measure the pride by getting an idea from how an Indian is discriminated who doesn’t know English.
And I am back to my mother tongue. I conquered English but I truly love hindi and I will always will.
2. Was a under confident guy who did it how the hell life will help this *sorry guy.*
But, I have the pride to crack SSB and crack the best bank exam to work for. They were not easy but I was an under-dog.
3. Never thought that I would ever turn to sports.
I was called a lazy bum, a cylinder, etc etc.. I was never an unfit guy. But, I just loved my books more than anything else.
So, one day I picked up a book to become a sports person. The name of the book is – pumping Iron by Arnold shwarznegar.
I did not become a body builder but I discovered the beautiful world of running by taking up my fitness.
From time to time, we need to remind ourselves that we have the power to overcome any calamity in life.
Never treat yourself a victim. Don’t be a deer. Be a lion. Have that lion like courage and have that courage to stand up to your convictions. To stand out of the crowd. To stand for your values. For your dreams. For your self. For humankind.
Don’t fall prey to petty judgements about you. No one can judge your great Ness because no one can give a final verdict.
It’s only you. You have the power. The power to veto all the non sense.
And today, I feel so much powerful. I know that I hold the destiny in my own hands. Life can play with me but I can play better♂️
