All right!! Before I say what I have to.. let me first thank you all for commenting on my article... Why complain about results..!! Taking a stand is very important and almost all of you have taken a stand. Everyones opinion is worthy of attention because each of us look at a particular situation with a different angle and perception.
Coming to my post..
Next attempt is less than 3 months away but I still see students moaning and groaning over the past results.. they have still to overcome the past setbacks and I have a serious problem with that! Unless and untill you bury your past you cant focus on your future.. and it is high time for those whose attempt is approaching to forget about their past and focus on the task at hand. I know it’s difficult but that’s a must! Moaning and crying and debating can happen later.. once you become CA.
I sincerely appreciate that some of you tried your best to divert the readers attention from the basic point I tried to make through this article.. that focus on yourself.. on the preparation because 'Accusing ICAI is but Excusing ourselves'
My target readers for this post are students.. who tasted failure this time and are little down before their upcoming exams. I want to divert their attention from their horrifying past to glorious future.
I can write a thousand articles on accusing ICAI for lowering the results drastically.. for not having that transparency.. for not having a world class examination system.. because I agree to that too but that’s not my focus right now! focus is not on ICAI but on Students.. focus is not on past but on future.. focus is not on result but on preparation..
Coming to few comments where some of you have mentioned that students are leaving this course when they fail.. more than once. I just have this to say to them, “success is often one step ahead of the point where you give up.. so hang on.. because tough time doesn’t last ever..
And justifying my quotation, “Either I’ll become a Chartered Accountant or die trying..” I’ll say what the great Napoleon Hill said about a great warrior who sailed with his army to their enemy’s country and then ordered the ships burned so the men would have no choice.. Either they would win and take the enemy’s boats to return or they’ll die.
Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN, essential to success.
The warrior’s army won the battle even though they were greatly outnumbered. Why? Because the men had a burning desire to live and return home. Winning was the only way to do that.
Without a burning desire you will most likely quit when things don’t work out as planned or when problems arise. Or you’ll quit when friends or family try to convince you that your goals are crazy or wrong, or when they tell you it’s a waste of time to chase dreams. You’ll become failure focused instead of success focused. With a burning desire you will not accept failure as an option.
ALL THE BEST..!!
