Something About Achievements
I have always felt that I have not had any major achievements in life. I maybe travelling the path to achieving something, but have not conquered much till now.
Somehow while on this thought-trail, I end up comparing myself to Rafael Nadal. Now, he is around my age, and look where he is right now. I have done nothing compared to what he has done. I don’t know why my mind jumps to him, I don’t have any particular liking for him, even though I love tennis a tad too much. Now I’m digressing from the point.
My father always says that when you think you have achieved everything, it is the point when you stop learning. And learning as we all know is as important as breathing. But yet that thrill of feeling a sense of accomplishment is what I long for.
What is the definition of accomplishment for a student anyways? Striving for acquiring the best of education which will help in a secure future. And more importantly liking what you do. So I am doing all of that, ain’t I? The journey is definitely very long and tedious, makes one forgets the final destination. It is tiring and confusing at times, but the end picture should be clear enough to lure one to move forward.
But why isn’t it enough, even if I know all this? Am I being impatient? In my defense I am trying to settle for the past 22 years, and am still struggling. It might be normal, but I can wonder, can’t I?
I don’t why I am being so philosophical suddenly. This must sound very boring. But I am having these thoughts for quite a long time, and it was high time I got it all out. I am sure this is a by-product of studying The Income Tax Act for a full week. CA does this to you.
My younger cousin lifted my spirits the other day. She is in her first year of graduation and was struggling with financial accounting. It was a cake-walk , made me feel quite good about myself, a balm to my down-in-the-dumps mood.
Maybe I have done something right along the way. Am sure I will make it. Thinking this makes me happy, so why not continue this thought process, at least for the time being?
