Destiny and Hard Work
by P. Mohan Chandran Bookmark and Share
 
'Our destiny is in our own hands' ' the saying goes. But how far this is true is a moot question indeed!

'Where there is a will, there is a way' ' goes the adage, but how practical is it in today's context is something that is to be scrutinized threadbare.

Hard work and perseverance are the two keys to success. We can shape our own destiny by hard work and perseverance. But, what if we don't succeed even after working hard and persevering? I don't want to sound pessimistic though, but let me put forth some moot points before you.

I've often felt and believed that we can shape our destiny to our liking, by hard work and perseverance. But, when I don't succeed even after working hard and persevering, I lose faith in these values and feel that the destiny has something else in store for me and we are just slaves to it. I feel that no matter however hard we work and persevere, destiny controls us and our future and we are bound to follow it demurely.

When we don't succeed even after working hard and persevering to achieve our most cherished and coveted goal(s), we feel that the destiny does not want us to become what we wanted to become. There is then a shift of ambition and focus. We have a try at other things and when we finally do succeed and settle in something else, then we feel, perhaps this is what the destiny wanted to make me and wanted me to pursue.

But, on the other hand, I feel all this talk of destiny and believing in it blindly are the signs of a weak-minded person who wants to avoid his responsibilities. A strong person will weather every storm of the destiny, come what may, to achieve his goals! He'll not (and should not) merely accept what destiny has to offer him. He'll fight for what he wants for himself from destiny.

There goes a saying ' 'Shallow men believe in luck, strong men believe in cause and effect.' This holds very true of persons who believe in themselves and in the values of hard work and perseverance. Just because you didn't get something or couldn't achieve your cherished goal ' even after a lot of hard work and perseverance ' you shouldn't settle for something inferior, which you may feel the destiny has to offer you or has offered you!

Always be a fighter and fight until your last breath for accomplishing your dreams. This is a world of cut-throat and ruthless competition. Remember, in this world there is no place for quitters because ' 'Winners never quit and quitters never win.'

Article Comment i think that we must always chose hardwork over comfort, thinking logically and considering the circumstances. And whatever may be the result, we should be happy in it. That does not mean to lose hope or not to try again but our best efforts will always give us immense satisfaction in the end. ALSO remember that God has sent us in this world to be a part of this machine which he thinks would be fit for us.

Article Comment I believe every major decision about life eg. What a person will become; a rikhaw Wala or a buttcher or sunny deol or son of sachin tendulkar is predecided before a person's birth in womb . We just have to follow our destiny and that is all. But hard work gives us contentment ,complacent and self satisfaction and respect that we did all which could be done and that's a big relief. So work hard to get self respect and satisfaction....
