Which one you would like to have at your home or office, a simple Rock or Sculpture?
A simple rock seems to be useless and has no value while statues decorate our homes.
It takes thousands hammerings, patience and time to make such Incredible and Unbelievable piece.
Sculpturers engrave and scratch at micro level to make it more beautiful and priceless. People can even pay thousands of dollars for these carved sculptures.
You must be thinking, why I am talking about sculptures here.
These above written sentences are synonym of our Life.
Life is full of Hammerings, which can be from Society, from Critics or from Colleagues or Peers at workplace.
All fingers are not same. Every day is not a Sunday.
Similarly, Life is full of Troughs and Crusts. And we have to pass through many transformations which makes our life Priceless and Worthy.
God tests our life. We always have to pass through various downfalls in our lives and directly or indirectly have to deal with them. Just like a sculpturer hammers rock to give it a beautiful shape, life hammers on us to make us Stronger and Tougher. We should never get worried and frightened from such instances in our lives.
Rather, we must prepare us mentally fit and courageously withstand these obstacles with determination. We have to be calm and patient and should never surrender ourselves. It makes us mentally tough and injects confidence going forward in our life. It gives the most precious thing, Experience. We become smarter and sharper. These are life lessons and we must learn from them.
The more we receive such blows and knocks from our critics and society, the more we get tougher internally which makes us consistent. Living in the comfort zone is the biggest risk we actually take.
“If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
– Erica Jong
It’s like hammering on us mentally and putting pressure on ourselves. If taken positively and courageously, we get to learn a lot from these downfalls.
Never get worried from such deterioration and never get collapsed from such knocks. An error can dismantle the statue into pieces; similarly a negative impact can destroy our life. Failures are part of life which if taken positively, gives us a ray of hope, make us a better and valued person.
The more hammers we get in life, the better, valued and respectable we would be.
Keep Smiling… 🙂
