There is a saying that there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. If you enter a tunnel, you will observe that on the inside of the tunnel there is darkness everywhere. However, if you continue to walk, after sometime you will begin to notice some light in the front. When you complete your journey, you will find yourself in complete light and open air.
The tunnel is an example from the physical world. The same example is applicable to the human world as well. Life is a journey. There is no smooth road through this journey. In this path everywhere there are problems, unwanted situations and sometimes darkness.
Why are there difficulties along every road to a destination? This is for your own betterment. Difficulties give you experience, make you sincere with regard to your goal and enhance your creativity.
But, if you do not lose courage and hope, the moment will certainly come when you have reached the end of tunnel in full light.
Why are there difficulties along every road to a destination? This is for your own betterment. Difficulties give you experience, make you sincere with regard to your goal and enhance your creativity. Difficulties, thus, develop the power of perseverance in your personality. These are the highest values of life. These qualities cannot be cultivated without passing through a difficult journey. The Scottish author Samuel Smiles (1812-1904) has rightly said, “We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success.”
What is the reason behind this? The reason is that failure makes you more sensitive regarding your goal. Failure brings about a brainstorming in you, and brainstorming is the only source of intellectual development. Failure enables you to revise your planning and make it more effective for the attainment of your goal.
Success gives you contentment, and contentment brings to a halt the thinking process in your mind. On the other hand, failure makes you discontented, and discontentment is the greatest source of continuous effort in life.
