Participating in competitions is really wonderful. The enjoyment doubles if one can win in the competitions but sometimes failures are the way to get success in everyone’s life. Here I would like to talk about a time when I made many efforts to complete my task, but I failed.
I vividly remember this was the time when I was in 10th standard, and there was a science competition in my school and I got participated and I was so excited. My teachers and my parents had huge expectations from me.
I tried to make a handmade project I took so many things like a pan, a small quantity of rice, some spices, water, a card box, glass sheet. This competition time was 2 hours. First of all, I made a box with a glass sheet and I covered this box from all sides.
I opened the top of the box, so the rays of the sun can pass from all sides. In that box, I put a pan and kept rice. After that, I add the required species. It was a very natural process. Due to nervousness, I did a huge mistake at that time, I forgot to add water. When the processing time was completed, I opened the box and I saw all the rice was burnt and my all efforts gone waste. I was in great distress because I did a lot of practice for this project.
I was quite embarrassed just because of my one mistake, I lose the competition and could not meet the expectations of my teachers and parents as it was a complete failure. All in all, it was an awful experience.
1. What’s your definition of success?
Success is really nothing more than the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. According to my opinion, success means reaching a goal, accomplishing a task, or otherwise accomplishing what they set out to do.
2.What things do children try to succeed in?
Well, from the very beginning, they try to succeed in many small and trivial actions. They try to learn some life skills like swimming and riding a bike and feel really proud when they master those.
3.Which do you think is more important for people to become successful, hard work or opportunities?
The most important thing for success is working hard. Even opportunity is necessary but without hard work, you don’t get any opportunity. Take for example you got your dream job you used the opportunity to go there but was it possible without putting effort.
4. Do you think people will be happier if they didn’t have any goals?
No, a life having no aim means a person living a meaningless life. Life without a goal means nothing, having no special ambitions is what makes life worthless. Life without aim is like holding a map without knowing the destination.
