Adversity introduces a man to himself

Published : Tuesday, 06 Jauary, 2014 12:50 PM
 
IIMs and few B schools have replaced GD with WAT and some of MBA institutes prefer WAT instead  GD hence, Written Ability Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication skills and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process. 
 
Develop points for discussion and read WAT topic:  
 
                                         “Adversity introduces a man to himself”
 
Ships are safe in the harbour, but then, that is not what ships are made for. Ships are not meant to stand securely in harbours. They are meant to explore, discover and engage with the vast seas and the lands. The seas may not always be smooth, the shore may not always be in sight – yet ships sail and reach their destinations, some are wrecked on their path, whereas others reach the end point successfully, having faced the tumultuous oceans. 
 
Similarly, adverse circumstances bring out the best in a human being. The only people who do have any problems in life, who are at peace with their circumstances, who have nothing to challenge them or test their fortitude, are the ones who are already dead. Those who lie in the graves have no problems. But those who are alive and breathing, have to face a plethora of problems in life – because that is what is meant by being truly and fully alive – facing and overcoming all hardships and obstacles.
 
Adverse circumstances lend meaning to our lives. They give us a reason to live. If we do not have anything to look forward to, any problem to solve, a helping hand to lend or a hurdle to surmount, then we shall never be able to realise our full and great potential. The Almighty has blessed all of us with a brain and a heart, to think and act correctly, after having adjudged the pros and cons of each situation. If we fail to do so at any instant, then we are abusing the gift of life that we have been endowed with.
 
Yet, there are those who crib, complain and criticise every moment of their existence. These people do not understand what it means to be human. They are not able to grasp the true meaning of life and live joyously. They waste precious time in thinking negative thoughts and cooking up pessimistic situations, which are not grounded in reality. This does not hold them in good stead.
 
A greater damage that all this inflicts is that people who come into contact with such non-entities also become de-motivated. Such is the negative venom that their tongues spew out, all the time. 
 
Yet again, it all depends on how one perceives a particular situation – one can be happy that one has been given a life to overcome certain challenges, or one can crib about one’s deplorable, problematic life. The choice lies with each one of us.
