CONQUERING YOURSELF

“When you climb up a mountain, you are not conquering it, you are conquering yourself!” said Hillary, assisted by Tenzing, the first man who climbed the Mount Everest. How nicely he had projected the intricacy between bracing oneself which is a paramount aspect before venturing into anything and achieving it!

Conquer refers to winning over a thing. It can be wars, or any sort of challenges, or competitions, or anything. It is, in other words, jumping any hurdle that seemed impossible.

More true to Hillary’s intelligible answer, anybody can conquer any challenging task, and thereby conquer himself/herself, be it a student in his or her studies or a working class person or a sportsman or a scientist or a soldier, or just anybody!

It also emphasizes that it is time to wake up the sleeping giant in himself or herself to face any tricky situation. Prior to that, one has to evaluate oneself which area (career) interests one, calculate the pros and cons, give a deep thought, rectify the mistakes committed before, find a remedy and draw a foolproof plan. Avoid taking hasty decision. Conquer yourself, first, with a single determination to fight all odds.

Have an excellent vision and mission. It is said, “If one doesn’t know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable!” Different people have diversified interest, like the taste and appetite in eating. Choose the one that suits you, seek opinion from your parents, teachers and know-how people and proceed.

Confucius, the great many-faceted personality of yesteryears of China had said,

“Choose the job you love and you don’t have to work even a single day!” Everyone is talented in one way, even the disabled persons, too. That is why they are called as “Differently abled,” to motivate and train them in any craftsmanship.

Never let a failure worry you. They are only transient. M. Jordan had said, “I have failed over and over again in my life. And that’s why I succeeded!” Take this cue as a lesson and face the challenges tossed at you.
