Be Patient and Challenge Yourself

Hello everyone ! 

Everyone keeps on saying. "Be patient, Your time will come." But, does it really happen. When that time comes?

The answer is YES, it happens. It's rightly said "Sabr ka phal meetha hota hai." See, everyone has a different life, different challenges, different problems, different circumstances. So, there's nothing to compare your life, challenges, problems, circumstances, etc. with the other people. But, inspite of knowing this fact, we sometimes, compare ourselves with other's success and the happy events of their lives and feel sad about our life.

This is the point where we should try to be patient. Instead of comparing our time with others, we should see ourselves. Here, I want to quote some beautiful lines that I read in a message. "Time will come! Someone is still single. Someone got married and waited 10 years before having a child, there is another who had a baby within a year of marriage. Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment of their choice immediately! Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years. Everyone works based on their 'Time zone'. People can have things worked out only according to their pace. Work in your time zone. Your colleagues, friends, younger ones might seem to go ahead of you, may be some might behind you. Don't envy them or mock them, it's their Time zone. You are in yours. Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You are not late, you are not early, you are very much on time"yes

A few days ago, a discussion was going on in the forum of CCI regarding no jobs for CA. This may happen. Not every CA gets a job immediately. But, what's required here is "HAVE PATIENCE". May be you are not getting job currently, but that doesn't mean you are not capable. You will get it. Trust yourself and you can do it only by challenging yourself. 

Many times, we compare ourselves with others. Many times, our closed ones, relatives, friends, etc, compare us with others. What to do at that time. Rise up or give up? Obviously, rise up. If someone compares you, no need to show them you are better than others. Just prove yourself what you are. People will automatically find their answers. There's only one person you should compare yourself with.. It's YOU and ONLY YOU. Improve your efforts, try to compete with yourself, make yourself a much better person each day. And it's possible when you Challenge yourself. Take challenges in life, whether it's related to your study, your exams, your career, your health, your self-respect, your mindset, your honesty etc. 

"Challenges are what makes life interesting. Don't take every challenge as a problem, rather take every problem as a challenge. Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it."

So, react positively in a challenging way with patience and you will have an overall better life. ALL THE BEST smiley
