“Isn’t it high time someone got negative about negativity?
Yes it is.
Look around. The world is full of things that according to nay-sayers, should never have happened.
And yet ‘yes’.
Yes, continents have been found.
Yes, men have played golf on the moon.
Yes, straw is being turned into biofuel to power cars.
Yes, Yes, Yes.
What does it take to turn no into yes?
Curiosity. An open mind. A willingness to take risks. And, when the problem seems most insoluble, when the challenge is hardest, when everyone else is shaking their heads, to say: Let’s go!”
An advertisement slogan that caught my eye on a foreign magazine few years back. I did not realize then why the words sounded so inspiring to me, I just jotted them down in my diary thinking they might just come in handy someday. Here’s how they did.
In a world of competition and adversaries, it is very hard indeed to reach your goals because you will know that someone else has always got his/her eye on it. Recall the last time when you did not have to compete with anyone to achieve your desired object. Find any? Certainly not! Commencing from the memories as a student of kindergarten, you had to compete with hundreds of other students to get yourself educated in an upright school. Followed by that you had to compete time and again to get admitted in a well-known college and renowned university. Since almost always, you are keeping on striving for what is the best. As the lifespan follows, those who had survived till now will then have to compete for their desired jobs and careers. And this is where the competition only starts to get intense! So you better hold on to the pace or get your life doomed.
However, this is the competition in merely one aspect of life, let alone the severe striving faced in other fields. It is really hard to accuse any one reason as for why we have to compete in a world that is full of resources and facilities. Especially when someone like Bill Gates says, “When I walk into a grocery store and look at all the products you can choose, I say, ‘My God!’ No king ever had anything like I have in my grocery store today.”
I guess all it takes to survive in this world of fierce competition today is the willpower to keep moving ahead. With technological advancements and population increase, there is no doubt that we will run out of all of our resources one day, and the day that happens, we need to be fully prepared.
