Invincible to invisible in 60 secs!!

chotacyrus | 5 March 2005, 2:57pm

< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 

The change in the status message said it all-it was 'INVINCIBLE' till yesterday,now I`m invisible.The reason was rejection from one of the better known b-schools in India.What followed were a few hours of extreme disappointment.Rarely in life have I failed.People know me as a very lucky person.I always had luck on my side.Lady luck had always been benevolent to me.All I asked of her was to smile and she would always end up kissing me.This time as I put forward my cheek expecting her to kiss me again,she gave me the slap of my life.Believe me,it was extremely painful.I guess the pain would last forever!!.But it was more than just pain that she gave me.She also gave me a few valuable lessons here.I realised that luck would not always take me through.I realised that luck and talent alone would not be sufficient for one to survive in this world.One needs to really slog it out if one were to be successful in this competitive world.
I really wanted to kick myself for this failure of mine....then after some introspection realised that this was not the b-school I wanted to get into.It was more of a back-up but somewhere down the line,I had become complacent and almost 'settled' for this.This was not what I really set out for.This achievement(incase I was selected i.e)was not certainly people would remember for ever.This was not the b-school my grandchildren would talk proudly about.I now am very happy that I did not convert the call...for I would have lost myself in the happiness and would have ended up under-achieving.Under-achieving has been one thing that I have been conscious of ever since I was a little boy.Not living upto one`s potential is the biggest crime that one could do to himself..and aint I happy that this has been avoided.:D Time to move onto better things in life.
For the next few months,I`ll spend time doing those things that I have always wanted to..losing a little fat,and returning back to my first love-music and probably even try my hand at learning the guitar.All this ofcourse when I take a break from working my a** off for the best b-school in India:D.
Sometimes,isnt a slap worth a thousand kisses??

P.S:I hope I am not glorifying failure here!!
