Come on! We all know the answer. It’s a big NO. Right? Your future doesn’t depend on your exam results.
Okay, I know you are not here to read just YES or NO. Let me tell you about someone who failed in exams but didn’t give up.
Here I present, Jack Ma –
- Failed in exams in the school, even in Primary and Middle School
- Scored 1 out of 120 marks in Mathematics portion in college exams.
- Harvard rejected him 10 times.
He is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world right now, the owner of alibaba.com.
His net worth: – 27 Billion USD.
Jack Ma has rightly quoted, “If you don’t give up, you still have a chance. Giving up is the greatest failure.”
Not everyone is good in studies, many people fail in exam. It is you who decide in which field you are good at. If you are good at dancing, join class and practice that. Dancers can earn huge amount of money. If you are good at singing, go for it. Singers earn name and fame too. If you are a writer, there are so many opportunities. You can be a story writer in movies, you can write novels etcetera.
There are so many fields today that you can pursue and earn name and fame. You come up with some original idea and you can be a successful entrepreneur. You can be a chef, photographer, cinematographer, designer, blogger, artist and there are lot many fields that you can pursue. Don’t think you are a failure just because you failed in exams. Failures are those who don’t try again.
Is suicide really an option? No, never!
India has the highest suicide rate of young people (15-29 years of age). Youngsters who come across failures during exams or career decides to take this extreme step. According to the 2015 report of Nation Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) data, every hour, one student commits suicide in India. In 2015, 8,934 suicide cases have been reported and still, there is no count on unreported cases.
Suicide is never an option, no matter what. Your parents might get angry because of your academic failure. They love you a lot and they want you to score well as they are worried about your career and future. Talk to them. Make them understand that you want to pursue your career in a different field which interests you. Every field is full of scope, you just have to give your best. Dedication and Determination are two pillars of success. Don’t say “it’s not easy”. Just give it a try. If you fail at something, try again. If you fail again, try once again. Try until you succeed but NEVER GIVE UP.
This is Life. Sometimes you are happy, sometimes you are sad. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. This is what balances the Life. You should never give up, no matter what. Exam results are mere tests and numbers which tells you in which subject you are good or bad. Not your marks but you decide your future.
Someone said once, “The world is beautiful outside when there is stability inside”.
Whenever you feel like giving up on life, think about those who live for you. You will not only kill yourself but them too. Live for them. Live for yourself. If you won’t give up today, you will definitely make your parents proud one day.
There has to be another way, there always is.
