Luck Or Your Efforts

A warm welcome to all my readers. Today my topic is about luck, about destiny. Do you believe in luck? Well I do not. There is no such good luck or bad luck. Because according to me, when something you gave a miss, that means you were not supposed to be there. Well, it’s all written on our destiny. I believe if you had given your part, your effort then you might not get exact success, but you will be happy with the result and guarantee, you will not get failure.

In my college days, my friends tagged me as “The Lucky Girl”. Because I used to score without studying. Not topper, but yes, with decent marks. My first year of college was very bad. I literally had no idea how to use the reference books. I had a habit of mugging up each and every sentence written in a book. I was not a  bright student. But then one professor said in one class that you will never succeed if you mugg up. You have to understand the concept. By this you can write the correct answer without studying. If you can understand the concept, in your own language that also will do, and if you make yourself understand by filmy-way that also will do. 

Yes, I applied that technique. I started understanding the concept, sometimes in Hindi, sometimes by creating a filmy scene. It was damn easy for me to understand the concept. And hence easy for me to write in the exams. But sometimes, we did cheat too. From friends-of-friends, I got this question paper. It was 50 marks and was an internal exam. So obviously, I didn’t study anything else other than what was there with me. But the professor came to know about this and she changed the question paper. It was a big question mark for me to write the answers.  To my surprise, I scored decent marks. As I said earlier, my friends used to call me lucky. They started taunting me every now and then. I explained to them that this is not at all luck. Yes, I never studied but I knew the concept. and the main thing is that I know HOW TO WRITE. Yes, I was not expecting good marks, but I was sure that I would not at all fail in that exam.

So, this is it. There is no such luck. It’s all the effort you put in. I give my effort at the start so that I don’t have to cry at the last moment. Yes, I got a tight slap by learning in a short cut way only and tried to secure first position. But it was my effort that after every class, I revised what the professor taught, by myself-making concepts.

Destiny is not in our hands. But you have to accept what has happened and try to move on. People do try to change their destiny. But if the cause is good, then obviously you will succeed. If not then you will fail horribly, making your life more miserable. So go with the flow without taking any tensions. Life will be easy. Think only about the present, make your present beautiful.

What do you prefer? Luck or Effort?
