Life has enlightened us more than the syllabus this year. 2020 was a rollercoaster ride comprising of the euphoria and the misery of life. But among all the obstacles there have also been many things which were worth commemorating. In a world where everything is unfolding every day the global pandemic has given us an opportunity to take a break and look at how things are around the world and how we should not be self-centric. 2020 has taught us to be more agile and vibrant and there were myriad life lessons that had to be learned.
The most significant word that we came across in 2020 is “change”. We dwell in a world of change but we often tend to neglect that. 2020 has been a reminder of reality. Though it has been a harsh awakening the fact that the secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old one but on building a new one. “Embrace the transformation, try something new.” While the pandemic brought on many challenges, it also exemplified us with the opportunity to get ourselves out of our comfort zones to try new ways of working and playing. We just have to accept the fact that nothing is constant.
COVID-19 came when the world was least expecting it. No country was ready to face it. But together as a community we came forward and battled coronavirus by staying at home while the frontline workers and the social workers stepped out of the home to protect us all. This is where the word “Being Grateful” comes into play. Being thankful is appreciating what the god almighty has given us. Be thankful to people around you and be thankful for each and everything that happens in your life’s journey. In a world where there are people who don’t even have adequate access to basic needs such as food and shelter express your gratitude as you get access to all the basic needs including extravagances.
Failure is not an eternal occurrence, you must learn to soar above it and choose to be better than you were junctures ago. Perseverance is the capacity to go on when things seem miserable. It is a measure of victory and the amount of sacrifice one does to taste success. Though 2020 has been a year filled with several hurdles and thorny paths for the plurality of us I would say we all have understood the fact that your tomorrow has great possibilities because of the steps that you take today. Every action has its equal and opposite reaction so hard labor has no alternative. This year has been difficult personally as well as professionally for many people but if we start practicing perseverance in our daily life it is sure that we’ll be successful one day or the other. There is no substitute for hard work hence stop procrastinating and start persevering. Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding in the 20th attempt.
2020 has been a year of hardships but that doesn’t mean 2021 will be the same. There’s something about hardships, if you can make it through the murky places it tends to lead you into the path filled with glee. I’m sure that this blog would help you have a better 2021 filled with exhilarating joy and peace of mind.
