Congratulations, You Failed !

Life is just too smart sometimes. It makes us walk on green grasslands with all the wonderful things around, and then next day, it just throws you down a deep pothole.
Now when you are down there, you start thinking the WHY and IF ONLY.

Do you see what life did right there? It made you think! All the while, when life was good, we never thought so much, did we? This will trigger not only your analysis about what happened and why but also how to get out of this. In this case for example, you will wonder if you missed a step while walking or if you were too distracted to see if you were on the right path. It happens. It is good to know what went wrong so as to watch for it when out of the pothole. Sometimes it is never YOU, it might be the wind or a push. But it is definitely going to teach you something.

Did you catch that? It was the secret to life. Seriously.

Let me tell you a story. I had some friends come over for dinner the other day. One of the friend told me how his family never cared too much about his grades. To top all that, if he failed the exam, his grandmother would be really happy. I know it sounds weird. I thought it was unconventional too. So I asked him the most obvious 'Why?' He told me his grandmother would just smile and say 'Congratulations, you are more mature now'. And right there, I had my 'Aha' moment. I was filled with awe. How thoughtful and wonderful was that.

Sometimes you need to be your own mentor. Period. Then be it! Now that you know the secret of life, I congratulate you. Your reward is a whole lot of understanding and empathy for others and yourself, realistic line of sight goals and a learning experience that will take you miles.
