Adapting a common saying - Everyone is born adventurous, experiences ruin them.
Every kid in this world did the same – they faltered when they started walking but they never stopped because of the failures they came across. It’s a relentless effort of overcoming thousands of failures that led them to walk flawlessly. But how many adults, who belong to the same lot of kids, face so many situations to overcome their failure and ultimately succeeded?? Moreover, did you really listen to your inner child and kept going?
When I read the book – Attitude is Everything, by JEFF Keller, I was so amazed to come across the story of Benjamin Roll, who failed the Bar Examination 13 times and finally passing at the age of 70. At last, he fulfilled his dream of practicing law at the age of 74.
I don’t say that we need to keep attempting everything. But the key is - are we passionate about fulfilling our dreams; are we determined enough to ignore the fear of facing the flack from your colleagues, friends, and relatives and who not; are we good enough to constantly move towards goal with improved self and finally are we ADVENTUROUS??
