Why am I writing this article?
I was at my college and we were asked to speak on a topic for couple of minutes in English. Actually there were some cheats in which the topic has already been written. We have to pick one randomly. I’ve picked one cheat and the topic wrote on it, was “Experience is the best teacher.” After speaking for about 5 minutes, I’ve started thinking deeply about this topic and then I thought about writing my opinion in this blog. And here I’m doing it.
So basically, there are two types of experience we get in life:
- Good Experiences
- Bad Experiences
It seems to me, here in the title, it’s about the bad experiences which mean that the bad experiences are the best teacher. Because you know, “Everyone seems good at coffee table.” Isn’t it? I hope your answer would be yes.
Anyway, mostly bad experience is what we get when we don’t get what we wanted. Isn’t it? You’ve probably read somewhere that difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. I’ve learnt a lot in my life from the bad experiences. I’ve observed that from failure, one will be able to learn a lot and one thing should be noticed here is that, when we face something personally, we’re less likely to forget it in our life, so it’ll remain as a lesson and will help to make ourselves better. Sandeep Maheshwari said in his video season, “Failure makes you humble. Without failure, one can’t be mature, one can’t be wise.” Elon Musk says, “If you are not failing, you are not innovating enough.”
As life is a long-journey, failure/success will occur many many times, we should always remember, if we focus on learning, we’ll be able to live our life peacefully and greatly. And when we focus on learning, we’re getting better every day; we’re making ourselves more flexible and it is not a small thing at all. Believe me, if you’re focusing on learning, though there will be failures but you’ll going to enjoy that too. Why am I writing too much about failures? Because failure will give us bad experiences and which is directly related to the main purpose of this post.
Sometimes the only thing that can make us a better person is a hard lesson. As also said by Steve Jobs, “Sometimes life’s going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.”
Let me know what you think about this topic in the comment section. I hope I’ll be able to write more articles like this in the future. Keep learning, keep growing 🙂
