Despair or Hope
Read and develop points for discussion for GD
From a young age, we have been told not to lose hope even when things don’t go according to our plans. This is because bad luck does not last long. All of us have our ups and downs – sometimes, we accomplish difficult things in the shortest possible time but at times, we find it difficult to even solve the simplest of the problems. This is how all our lives are; so, there is nothing to get worried about.
Martin Luther King once said, “Everything that is done in the world is done by hope”. This is extremely true. Why did Mahatma Gandhi fight for India’s freedom? The answer is ‘hope’. He hoped for a better future for Indians, which is why he sacrificed so many things in life and fought for the welfare of the citizens of India. It is hope that helps us to move on even in the darkest of days, which is why we should never lose hope even when the going gets tough.
Many people become miserable in lives thinking about others’ success. When we see our friends purchasing bigger cars and houses than what we have, we become depressed instead of having hope that one day, we may be in their shoes. This unhappiness leads to more problems that stem from jealousy and hatred.
Nobody can predict what tomorrow will bring – we may have more fortune than what we have today or we may lose money. So, the important thing is to live in the present and make the most of what we have.
In the workplace, there is bound to be friction during interactions with colleagues, bosses or clients. Many times, people may not agree with us and they may put us down, but that does not mean that we are incapable – we ought to think about what went wrong and try to do things better the next time around.
Even after working hard for long hours, we may not get promoted or we may not be even considered for a raise. If we become depressed, we will become less productive than before and this can be detrimental to our careers. So, instead of feeling sad and dejected, we should try to perform well than before in the hope that we may get promoted next time.
Life is not a bed of roses – we face difficult situations everyday but what helps us to move on is the hope that tomorrow will be better than today. So, even when times are tough or when things seem challenging, put your best foot forward and you will reach your goals.
Do not let negative emotions such as despair or unhappiness get to you because not only do they act as obstacles in your path to success but they also prevent you from achieving your potential?
