Never give up.

The strongest people aren’t always the people who win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose.

We had a lesson in school about a King and a spider.

Vikram was a brave king. Once, he had to fight against a large army with just a few soldiers, he was defeated. He had to run for his life. 

Vikram took shelter in a forest cave. He was very depressed. His courage had left him. He was blankly gazing at the ceiling of the cave. An interesting scene captured his attention. 

A small spider was trying to weave a web across the cave ceiling. As the spider crawled up, a thread of the web broke and the spider fell down. But the spider did not give up. He tried to climb again and again. Finally, the spider successfully climbed up and completed the web. 

Vikram began to think, “If a small spider can face failure so bravely, why should I give up? I will try with all might till I win”. This thought gave strength to the defeated king. 

Vikram got out of the jungle and collected his brave soldiers. He fought against the large army. He was defeated again. But now, he would not give up his fight. 

Vikram again and again fought against the large army and finally, after many attempts defeated the large army and regained his kingdom. He had learnt a lesson from the spider. 

It teaches us also not to give up under any circumstances.

Don’t give if you fail in exam, don’t give up if you didn’t get that job, don’t give up if you didn’t get that promotion/raise, don’t give up if you were not able to solve that bug, don’t give up if that surgery failed, don’t give up if you fail in business ventures…

Improvise….

UnLearn and relearn new skills…

Upgrade your thinking…

…and retry. It will bring you success.
