The Victory Run

It’s fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.                     -Bill Gates

Well, I am on cloud nine, maybe ten or eleven would be right one too. 14th interview and it had to happen on this one. Well, it had been happening ever since the 10th interview but yet the best one yet. Got through to it. Placed in Hyundai, a core job with a good package. Its a good thing.

Failure is something which is detrimental to our self confidence and 100% optimism. I guess I needed that to get compassionate and soft. I did see the change, not very excited and not very sad as well. And that has a separate reason to it. When I was shortlisted for the first interview in my college, I had an ego, a superiority (a little bit of it though), and the “i am the best” mindset. But, a series of failures funneled out all such junks, shaping me to be the man I am now, and I wish I never forget the lessons of those failures, the sleepless nights, and the self criticising hour of the day. They were not so good but yet, they helped my to loose the rubbish I was shouldering around.

Haven’t got the balance in mobile or the energy in me to go around telling people again and be thankful for their support as much as I want to delineate my thought into words and gestures. Cannot name them as well, because there are a lot of people, and this post will never be sufficient to explicate their gifted virtues. Without their support, it would have never been up to this stage. To my teachers, friends, family, and a huge insensitive and adamant ego, thank you all for the encouragement and support.

Went to sleep smiling, with a smirk on my face, the satisfaction, patience and one more line in my lips, “Do not get complacent, not yet”. And I will keep moving forward. Thank you all for your wishes again and I will be there for you when you need me.
