Failure or Success

After the results for CATXATIIFTSNAPCMATMAT and NMAT are out, you will be invited for GD and it is must for you to practice with variety of GD topics.
 
Read and develop points for discussion on GD Burning topic: Failure or Success

 
From the time we start school until we seek retirement, we are constantly bombarded with the following questions: “What was your score in the examination?”; “What are your grades for the examination?”; “Did you get selected for the job?”; “Did you get a promotion?” and “Did you get a raise?” 
 
Like it or not, we are constantly judged by people and categorised as either ‘winners’ or ‘failures’ depending on the parameters that people have in mind. So, if a person believes that only those who get a B grade and above in examinations are winners and you only get a C, you are considered a failure in his/her eyes. 
 
It is not only people who put pressure on us but we put pressure on ourselves too – we feel the need to please people around us and we get scared of failure. We feel that people will look down upon us if we fail and we try out best to succeed in every task. Sometimes, we choose not to undertake challenging tasks because of the fear of failure, and this is detrimental to one’s growth.
 
We should not be afraid of failure. We should undertake challenging tasks and learn from our mistakes. Great businessmen did not become successful overnight – they struggled to reach the top and they failed several times. 
 
Bill Gates and Narayana Murthy have proven to the world that failures are not obstacles and that they help individuals to grow. In school, we may fail in some examinations but that does not mean that we are failures – it just means that we did not get some concepts right or that we did not put in as much hard work as we should have. Failing an examination is not the end of the world but the failure to learn from one’s mistakes can definitely spell disaster. 
 
Likewise, if we get good grades in our examinations, it does not mean that we can sit back and relax for the rest of the year. It just means that our hard work has paid off and that we should continue studying the same way that we did before. Failure should not pull us down and success should not make us complacent.
 
In the workplace, sometimes we perform to the best of our abilities and sometimes, we fail at some tasks. When we succeed at a task, we should not flaunt our success or look down upon the people who failed – we should be modest and help those who need our assistance. When our colleagues succeed at a task, we ought to congratulate them – this way, we will maintain good relationships at the workplace and promote harmony.
 
We should not let success or failure get to our heads – else we will be miserable in life. We should take success and failure as part and parcel of our lives – we should work hard to maintain success and learn from our mistakes so that we don’t fail in similar tasks later.
