Be prepared and charge forward!
Life is an ongoing process. It throws challenges at us every day. Those challenges are the greatest tests of our determination, dedication and perseverance. Sometimes, it gives us a few moments to decide the next step which becomes vital in the long run. The mental strength and, the ability of mind shown during that few moments determine the way we are going to live in the future. Life never looks back; it’s beautiful, but brutal at the same time.
Failure Is the condiment
That brings Flavour
To the broth Of success.
We have to tame

Being challenged in life is inevitable, we all have experienced that. But there are some people whose ability to overcome hurdles and, success story remain etched in our minds.
They are not great persons, not the famous ones, still, they succeed in creating an impact through the ways they face life as it comes and always having a plan to deal with uncertainty. Ajay uncle is one such person.
Ajay uncle lives near our house and is a well-known face in the locality. He is the owner of 15 auto-rickshaws now. But only a few years back, he was in a position no better than a homeless beggar. His father died an untimely death and being an employee of a small private firm, saved almost nothing for the future. It was a time when the family had four members, Ajay uncle’s two younger sisters, mother and he, himself, with no income as such. He was in the final year of his college with his sisters still in school. It was becoming impossible for him to make the both ends meet and, he was compelled to drop his studies midway. But, he was intransigent with the studies of his sisters. Since getting a job was almost impossible for without a degree, he formulated a new plan to earn and started working as a rickshaw driver.
He never felt any disgrace about his job, nor he had any complaint towards life. He used to say, “adverse time gives us more tolerance and power, it refines us like gold.”
Ajay uncle worked day and night. He knew he had to overcome this phase of life with hard work and tenacity. Only these qualities can make him resilient of his current situation. Not that the family had no friends or relatives. They had many and, some even offered financial help. But, uncle’s self-esteem refrained him to seek help from others. According to him, physical sufferings were much more welcome and endurable than the mental ones. He was motivated to save and plan a better life for himself and his family.
After working almost without any off-day for two years, he pooled his savings, took a loan from a bank and, bought his first auto-rickshaw. He worked with the double hardship to triumph over the adversities of life. His perseverance, planning and hard work paid. Today, he is quite well-off.
Ajay Uncle’s life taught me one thing. That life is not an easy-going, dazzling thoroughfare; we must have the determination, the foresight and most importantly, the confidence to succeed. We must believe that we have the ability to attain our goals, we must believe in ourselves and also we need to plan for success. #KhudKoKarBuland
