The Problem is: You have not failed!!

Story of an IAS aspirant....

For once you have tasted the soil of failure, you might have been more furious in your attempt.. Just a thought..
Many of all the people you are thinking about or getting the motivation dose from, have tasted it and hence, are working day and night to achieve their goal.. But unfortunately, you have not failed.. You know why? Because its your first attempt.. It could be for sure "First of many" because the zeal is missing.. The fire, that once let you leave everything behind, is clearly in ashes now..

But.. Do you want to get a failure to succeed? Why not looking at the people who did marvels in the very first attempt.. Everything will not come in beautiful trays to serve you hot.. They might even burn you if dont handle the advantage you have with care..

Yes.. the advantage.. For you have many many success stories.. The one timers, the two, three and some even four timers... And its upto you to write your own story!!

Super Demotivated... What to to?

NO Seriously.. What really should you do when you are demotivated to a level so so low that its now out of your control to handle..
You seek advices from people, make calls or just sleep so that when you wake up, you might feel better and get back to work.. Still not working..
Read a book..watch a movie..talk to your Dog.. try some dance..sing a song... Still NO?
All right, lets try wasting some more time until the self-motivation lecture starts drumming in your head.. Watch some crap on youtube because last time you made a promise that you will not watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S again as it distracts you..
Well.. May be last time it helped, not again..

You know, there always might not be a solution and you can keep running in the circle..
Because, its a circle with no end and before you know it, you are trapped!
Trapped. Ok. Now what?
Time is running ..so is your life.. 25 today.. Not more than 5 years to turn 30 and cry about what must have been done in the last five years..last five GONE years..
Think about it?
The list is ready but not you. You are here sitting demotivated..

So?
So.. Relax now. You have tried everything that you could have.. So just relax now. Shut the whole world and your eyes.. Now seriously think what's this time is for? Review the whole TO-DO list and think which one should me marked "DONE" first? Is it marriage, honeymoon? Travelling or studying? Getting settled first or your career first?

You have already made a choice a year back. Its not like that you cannot go back and reshuffle your choices.You Can, you absolutely can. But before that, think about it again. What do you really want at this moment of time which cannot wait another year.
That's it. This is what you want.
NOW you can keep sitting idle, lazy and sad for some more time..kill it.. Or else mark it off this unromantic time and grab your shoes, pick yourself up and get back to work! Your dreams are yours..your list is yours..

Remember, If you don't care, nobody else would..
