It is not the marks that define you but it is hard work that gives you success

Dear Students & Parents,

CBSE Exams are round the corner and students started spending sleepless nights to perform better in the examination to meet up the high expectations of their parents. Dear students stop worrying about the exams. Exams are important but they are not everything, not the end in itself, just the beginning of your career. The marks and grades you get are going to determine which university and which job you are going to get into. Of course, grades are important but they should not define you. Don’t just one exam or one low grade define your whole future.

Marks or numbers should not define you. There is so much more potential right inside you. You are cut out for much bigger things in life. But remember, there are no shortcuts to success. It can be achieved only through hard work, dedication and sincere efforts. Keep working hard. You should have a strong desire to succeed. The higher your desire is the better you become.

We live in a world where success is celebrated and failure is bemoaned. The success of every child is decided by the marks and the grades they score. But remember, failure is always an event, not a person. All success stories are stories of great failures but the only difference is that every time when they failed, they bounced back.

When Thomas Alva Edison was working on the light bulb, he made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. On asking what was the secret to this success?” Gates replied: “There’s no secret. I worked really hard on my idea to get it as good as I could, and then knocked on door after door. I ended up showing my idea to 1200 people. 900 said no. 300 people showed some interest. Only 85 people actually did anything. 30 took a serious look. And 11 made me a multi-millionaire.”

JK Rowling’s Harry Potter was rejected 12 times by different publishers before it gets published; hence, don’t worry about what you could not do so far, look forward to what you can do. How can you utilize your time the best, it is time to be focused, not to get discouraged and distracted. Put off your gadgets and be away from social media for time being. You can create history!

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will. Hence, stop worrying about your future. Do whatever best you can!

Dear Parents, be happy with your children’s choices- whether it be their choice of career or anything else. ‘There is no competition in destiny. Each has his own'. Don’t ever compare them with others. Comparisons and competitions kill the joys of life. Let them run their own race that leads to a peaceful, happy and steady life. After all, they are your children!
