Failing is Positive

School exams are stressful, all your exams and assignments always seem to fall in the one week. All teachers want you to study more for their subject and you don't even like any of these subjects, there is no motivation.

The day of the exam arrives and your
sitting in the room all you can see is heads down, all you can hear is flipping of paper and pens and pencils. All you can think is "why is everyone using a ruler now. Ahhhh

Results are back and you failed drastically and you are really upset and stressed. Why did I fail? I tried so hard. I stayed up late for this. I am such a failure.

Failing anything is hard and puts you down. Seeing others achieve effortlessly makes you feel like you will never be good enough, like you will never achieve but in life not everything is about the mark on the paper, everyone has strengths and weaknesses, everyone has good and bad days.

You may fail at your math's exam but excel at your drama performance.

The people in your class who always pass effortlessly every time, who have never failed, it may look good on paper but in reality what does it do for you and becoming the best you possible. When you fail "something" it may upset you but it makes you want to strive for more, to keep trying and achieve something bigger than just a tick on a page. From failing you get to experience more and develop your character and the real you comes forward and shows strength.

More than just failing an exam, it could be a personal problem but without obstacles and strains on relationships you gain knowledge and strengthen, without theme you just float. What's the fun in that, where is the climax to the story? Will you really know the feeling of success? Most people who are successful and happy today had some major fails to get where they stand today. People will want to put you down and tell you that you will never achieve, use this as more strive to get where you want to be.

Be inspired and be you!
