Do What You Feel Is Right, For You Will Always Be Criticised!

So, this is a story I had read somewhere which explains life perfectly. One day, it so happened that a girl in the class laughed as she saw the teacher write a wrong answer on the board. The school teacher wrote on the board the following –

2×1 = 2

2×2 = 5

2×3 = 6

2×4 = 8

2×5 = 10

2×6 = 12

2×7 = 14

2×8 = 16

2×9 = 18

2×10 = 20

When the teacher was done writing, he looked on the board and saw all the students laughing because he wrote the second equation wrong. He then said “ I wrote the second equation wrong intentionally because I wanted you all to learn something from this. “

He said, “This is for you to know how the world outside will treat you. I wrote correct answers 9 times, but none of you congratulated me. One wrong answer, and you laughed so bad. “

Here is the lesson – The world will never appreciate the good you do a million times but will criticize you for one wrong thing that you do. But stay strong and rise above the criticism.

This reminds me of a quote –

Once I did bad and that I heard ever, Twice I did good, but that i heard never.”

Do The Best You Can For Yourself!

Resources are never the problem. It is the lack of resourcefulness that causes failure. This is the Golden Age, the era which humanity has always looked forward to, dreamt of and worked for numerous years.

With the onset of internet and the current resources at hand, you can literally learn all that you want and know about any skill you wish to. It is important that you develop your skill-set and become a person of value. Grooming yourself and giving your life a new direction is in your hands. A few years ago, it wasn’t even possible. You are very lucky that you are born in this era, so make full use of it.

Be the best version of yourself. Take out time, learn and educate yourself. Living in this information age, it is the best if you cater to your own self.
