There’s nothing wrong losing a battle or a game. Here, a battle can be compared to a person fighting an incurable disease in real life! A game can be compared to a person or an animal struggling for the survival of its existence.
Losing or failing is not a bad thing! But losing your self belief is something to be bothered about. A defeat or setback can make you stronger both emotionally and physically, provided if you still have belief in your inner strengths.
Let’s revisit the quote from the movie, Batman Begins (2005).
“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” – Alfred
There is greatness in a fall or defeat. A defeat teaches you more than a school education. To rise from a setback, a revival technique is essential to be adopted.
The Revival Techniquecan be put down as:
Fall– You are crushed and beaten. You have to start all again from the bottom.
Acknowledge– You have to acknowledge yourself that you have been defeated and it was not all that easy this time. But always remind yourself that you have not been crushed completely. Today or yesterday was a bad day. But there is always a dawn after a night.
Pump up– Find inspiration from any source that gives you a thumping burst of positive energy. Search for your own sources of inspiration and stay with the flow.
Find the courage-If you had found your inspiration, now it is time for setting up some courage to back you.
Stay calm and practice patience – We have seen this in the movie,The Shawshank Redemption (1994). The protagonist remains calm and works his way around with enough patience till the end. Your time will come but keep working hard for it.
Endure the pain – To achieve greatness, sometimes you might have to endure a little pain. But that’s all worth the pain. Endurance talks more about the mental and emotional strength. You cannot be defeated completely unless you allow it.
Plan the hit – Planning is another part of the revival technique. Planning your execution is mandatory before you execute. You have all the time for your planning. So make the most of it.
Strike while the iron is hot!– Doing justice to this saying, execute your plan at the right time. You know it when it’s time. You will know it.
You must rise after your fall. You will rise for sure. The revival technique will work definitely. And the revival technique is working…
It happens to most people throughout their lives and there is no escaping from it. The strings of such a moments are controlled by the ‘Time‘. Here, the time reigns superior than the human beings.
In these type of moments, you tend to wonder what had happened to you. The world surrounding you seems to drift apart. You are down, lost, confused and helpless. Your life is not under your control as you begin to understand it lately.
You would have given your best efforts and remained true to yourself and others. You would have wished for something good but unfortunately time had something different for you in store. All your efforts have been fruitless. You feel that your heart is not able to accept it.
In such difficult times, your close ones would not be standing by your side. The people whom you loved would have moved away from you. You would feel that loneliness is overshadowing your once active life. There will be frustration deep down in your heart.
Despite all these hardships, you make efforts to move on and indulge in activities that help to give a diversion to your mind. As you anchor a new path and as times change, you realize that there is a new light appearing at the end of the dark tunnel. You understand that the crumbled world is giving shape to a new world to live in. You find new goals to work for and new wishes to hope for. You meet new people. And the vibe around you and your life has changed completely.
Lately, you understand that your life is much better now. Your dear ones would have started to believe in you. Life would have changed for now, even though the change was a slow one. Thanks to the ‘Time’!
When you take a moment to look back at the things that happened yesterday. You realize that the past had a reason for the present life. Everything that happened was for a reason. All the broken pieces from your past have found a perfect place to fit in your present life. You feel that life is even more beautiful than ever.
You understand the power of the ‘Time‘. What you had done so far was following the ‘Time‘. Finally, the ‘Time‘ has taken you to a new world.
There are some people who love to be in solitude. They wish that they could spend some quality time being alone.
They are called the Artists, who create magic with the rainbows through the ordinary grey shades of life in solitude.
We the ‘artists’ include writers, painters, musicians, singers and many more. We give life to the creations that we create with passion. We give our best shot when we are left in solitude. Creativity takes birth here, when we are ourselves in solitude.
The magic of our passions are read by you as the words that the writers create in solitude.
The magic of our passions are heard by you as the music that the musicians create in solitude.
The magic of our passions are seen by you as the paintings that the artists create in solitude.
When dreams fly like fire, Don’t blow it off just like that, Instead allow it to fly, Because dreams are meant to touch undefined boundaries, Sparking creativity through the path of mind. When you begin to dream like fire, Keep dreaming through those undefined boundaries, And that’s where you meet your true self and passions, In the land of creativity and fun. Keep dreaming… Keep dreaming…
There are certain moments in life which redefine life all over again.
Just when you think, it is all over, Just where you think, you’ve left everything, Just when you lose all hopes in your self, Just when the people around you lose hopes in you, Just when things don’t happen the way you expected,
That’s where you declare it is the end,
Unknowingly from nowhere, it creeps up from somewhere, The complexities and unpredictability of life shows you That everything has not ended. There comes the redefining moment, the new beginning…
It doesn’t matter how far you have traveled or how quick you reached there, what matters is the journey, which makes it worthwhile.
