For most people, success means obtaining a specific object such as building wealth, launching a million-dollar business or being in a perfect relationship. However, some of the most significant successes have been as a result of the worst failures (Hines, pg15). Success is dynamic, and it differs from individuals depending on their goals. The ability to achieve a particular goal is what defines people’s success which is a life-long process and not a one-time achievement. For many young people, starting their lives is a difficult situation that is faced with many challenges, for example, being born to neglectful parents.
I can say I have found myself and am very matured for my age. I see life differently and plan goals to define my own success, in a realistic manner I take charge of your own life and know what I want and what I have to do to get what I want. My experiences have made me a stronger person, I push myself to work harder and never give up. I have failed many times and through that, I have learned to deal with failure. I have learned that everything happens for a reason and it is a learning experience.
I will never know I will fail or not before I do something according to my ideas, so it is important for me to try. And if I fail, failure teach me to analysis the things I do, I can learn from the particle experience about what works and what does not work. After that, I can do some adjustment in the future. Furthermore, we can also learn integrity through failure, integrity is the quality of being honest and having a high moral principle, failure teaches us to listen to others opinions and feedbacks more. People exchange ideas with others and listen to others experience can decrease the possibility to fail a task.
We just have to make an effort to be enthusiastic in times of defeat. Time will come these failures will turn into success. For me it’s like being idealistic in all times. No matter how many obstacles might come, I stay positive. Because I believe if I want a product in what I do I should work to do it.
Students should be aware of the potential pitfalls of the following activities to ensure that their university experience will be positive as possible. The students need to ensure that the he has chosen will not consume all of his time for academics and other priorities. He must devote his extra time and attention only on the extracurricular activities that suites his interest. The student will feel rewarded when he becomes productive in the activity that he is involve. In this case, self-esteem will increase.
Looking at our daily, we daily fail in our achievement test, but usually a times come when we spark a success. And I had many experiences in my life like that. I am also getting know through my daily life experience also how failure can eventually lead to success. “Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.” ~ George Edward Woodberry Our old world history is full of success.
Extracurricular activities engage students’ interests. It improved connections of students, whose commitment towards schools was frail, positively. Participation increases peer interaction. It serves as the enabler for marginalized students to interact with the elite strata of the student community who generally have a positive attitude towards school. They instill a sense of discipline and provides the skill set to tackle challenges in a structured manner.
However, there are two sides to every coin. Similarly, I feel that extra curricular activities are of equal importance as studies in judging a person 's overall capabilities. As a regular football player representing my university department, I was in a position that many athletes would covet. Moreover, an interesting learning phase at the university has been my experience as an executing member of Mechanical Engineers Association. As an active member of the association, I feel that I have developed into a dynamic individual because of my interaction with people and commitment to many extra-curricular activities at the top level.
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” - Pele. I like this quote because I can see and understand it. If we’re just sitting around hoping to win the lottery someday, and don’t sacrifice the time to work, learn, study, and love what were doing, then we can’t move forward. Success is not about how much money you have or what kind of car you drive, it’s how you feel about your efforts and accomplishments.
