The story is all about losing and gaining. Many things come across the mind losing what and gaining what? Right? So there may be many things that a particular person lose and then gain. Obviously after losing a specific thing we somehow gain something in a manner.
So, starting with a short story, I was going through an article few days back and came to know that, in 1938, there was a person named Karoly, who was a soldier and a gold medalist in Olympics who was the fastest and the most accurate shooter of the time. He was working for Hungarian army. He even won all the national championships of the country he was residing in. And even everyone was sure that, the Olympics that was going to take place in 1940’s, he would surely win. He was of the view that, he has to make his hand THE BEST SHOOTING HAND. Yes and he made it to fulfill his dream. What he dreamed of he accomplished. But never life remains the same. There is always competitions, challenges and most of all difficulties. You have to pass through them to achieve it. In 1938, there was an army camp training in which the grenade he was holding exploded on his hand and unfortunately he lost his hand. What he dreamed of, what was his focus, everything finished. Now there was two options left, number one was to cry, sit back in a dark room, run away, or to blame and the other one was to achieve his goals once again. He then didn’t focused on what he lost, he just focused on the other hand he had got. He remained in hospital for the treatment for one whole year and then he came out with his left hand from which he can’t even write properly, shaking and trembling. He returned in 1939 and started with the training.
There was a national championship taking place at the time. He went there and one player asked him that, “after all of this happened to you, you are still here for supporting us. Don’t you feel after seeing all of this?”. No one knew that he was training his only hand he had got. He laughed out and said, “I am here to compete with you people, I am not here to sit and cheer”. And who won? Of course Karoly won because people there standing and playing was playing with there best hand but he was playing with the only hand he had got. But he didn’t stopped here. He was only waiting for 1940 Olympics but unfortunately, they got cancelled because of the world war. He again started with his training because he just dont wanted to stop from being the best one among 1000 players. Then he participated in 1944 Olympics but again it got cancelled because of the world war which was side by side taking place. Then he focused on 1948 Olympics and guess what? He won the gold medal. He again didn’t stop here he played in 1952 Olympics and again he got victory. Difficult word was never in his dictionary. Karoly Tackas the world’s first shooter to win two Olympic gold medals in 25 meter rapid pistol event. Both with his left hand because right one was badly injured. If you just see the loser he would have one list of 100 tantrums that’s why he did not only accomplished his goals in life but on the other hand if you would see the winner he would have got one list of 100 things that he didn’t want to do but will do and only one reason to do what he want to do.
This gives us a lesson that every single individual has got two options on losing something. As specified above, one is that you cry and hold yourself and the other one is you stand up and explore yourself. Life gives us many chances where we lose small things and after loosing these small things we are ready to loose prepared to lose something big. And of course losing isn’t a big deal at all. We shall get use to it and stop getting frustrated over them. Let me give you people an example, time is the biggest lesson we have learned over. That once we lose our time it wont come back for example, we had to study for the exam but we just wasted our time and exams are on.
The most trifling incident and the greatest disaster should be faced without tears. The art of the losing, in fact, means to live life, hoping for the best, and to be ready to face and accept the worst. Everyone, has got something in their life which for them was not acceptable and was the worst phase considered in their life! But trust me people, what you have loose, you have lose it for a specific reason. We can’t deny nature. Losing something important or someone special may it be anyone would make you strong enough to face life. This is life. You should not cry over losing that is important to learn.
I, Myself learned that it is very important to hold back your tears and learn from what you have loose. Because you will definitely gain afterwards. It is okay to cry on things but never let these things come over you. This will make you weak. Face your self. Start yourself a fresh. Nothing in this life will be easy, we will cry, laugh, scream and be silent. Everything you do to get over that wall is what defines you. There’s more than one way over a wall! Remember that! We learn after our hard times. Once again narrating, that I went through the surgery, I lost myself there. I lost my happiness. I felt that this is it. Everything was finished. But never knew that life was taking a turn and how beautiful will it get afterwards. Believe me! This was the most beautiful turn that life took upon me. I realized my self-worth. I realized that I was perfectly fine. It was just my confidence that I lost during this process but obviously I gained something more important that was self-love and self-worth.❤
We gain the strength of the temptation we resist.
We all deal with loss differently. Some of us brood and mope around for what seems like forever, others succumb to defeat and vow never to try again, while a remaining few allow themselves to grieve for a little while before dusting themselves off and preparing for a second go around. Whatever the case, the way we handle defeat says a lot about us and determines our successes moving forward. The reason most of us don’t deal well with losing is because we believe that our losses are a reflection of who we are. We therefore spend a lot of our time beating ourselves up over them because we view ourselves as failures or conclude that we aren’t good enough and therefore the reason behind our losses. What most people fail to realize is that there’s a lot to be gained from losing if we embrace our losses with an open mind and allow ourselves to see the lessons they present.❤❣Start exploring yourself and learn from each and every single thing around. You never know that what is there waiting for you❤?
