disappointment

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.” – Robert Kiyosaki

When your a little child, sometimes you gaze up into the sky and wish upon a star for something you believe will come true. Your parents and grand parents put little beliefs into your head about how if you see a shooting star you should make a wish. I think in another way our parents tried to prepare us for the tiny disappointments we would be facing on a daily basis. How many of us have stared in wonder into the vast skies and thought maybe if i closed my eyes and wished for it really believing in it… maybe i just might get it. Maybe… is never a certain word. Never has been and Never will be.

From the day we were given life we had to overcome disappointments in many forms. I can assure you by saying that school was probably the biggest and most life changing experience anyone of us had to go through. It is at that institution that we were actually thrown into a world with a whole new different species of children. School is where we got our initial look as to where we might end up one day. We were introduced to people. School moulded us into what we are right now. We believed we wanted to be doctors, teachers, ballerinas, business women or men…. a world of unthinkable possibilities. And school first introduced you to politics. One day your with one set of friends and the next day your not in their circle anymore. The foundation of friendship was built and broken there. You witnessed your best friends backstabbing you. If you werent considered one of the poshest or coolest people in school you were a loser. If you were a cool kid then your some rich little spoilt brat. It was safer than anything just to be invisible. But how many of us can really be invisible anymore. Even though we say that our schools were too large to know what was going on, if you slipped in anything… everyone knew..and did i forget to mention that most of us have had our hearts broken for the first time there?… ahhhhh school… the good old days…. brings back memories doesnt it?

And then without warning we are pushed into the outside world of bitter rivalry. The politics the backstabing the sucking up.. everything for some gain. When we do something correctly we believe in luck… and when things always go wrong we believe we are doomed by the grim reaper… Work is the place where you work your hardest, to be recognized, to be the best.. and when it all falls down on you, sometimes you just snap. In my belief i think that disappointment is inevitable. To overcome it we need to understand that no matter what happens the Sun will still rise and shine the next morning, and we need to start over as a new page in our books. Always remember to make the best out of what you have, eventhough you know you cant do much atleast always end the day with the feeling that you did the maximum you could. Like the saying goes.. when life gives you lemons, make some lemonade.
