Once a sprinter was competing with nine other sprinters in a 100-meter race. But when he entered the arena, he saw – while everyone starting from the same mark, he was marked to starting from 20 meters behind others. After asking the referee the reason, referee replied, “Because your previous race result was not as good as others. So you will start behind others.”
It may sound funny, but that is the reality in the real-life race. This is how you get behind of others while seeking for a job or looking for an admission in next level of education. Nevertheless, you can still win the race only if you can run unimaginably faster than others in that short time. You have to do extra hard work as a remedy for your past negligence. However, I see a lot of students with an average result with no significant or economic skill at all. How can you expect someone hiring you? Besides, I have seen that educated people become better CEOs and businessman than others in most cases.
If you think the result is everything and employers care about your result, you are wrong. Although result will set you at the advantageous mark on the race, still, you have to run with your full effort to qualify for next stage. The only value of your result to the employer is – you know the art of learning and the benefits it possesses.
On the contrary, if you think result does not matter, then you will end up behind the mark. You may not have the opportunity to win because of your ignorance. Besides, you never entered the “process of learning”.
So, try your best to learn and have a good result. Also, create your skill set by applying your learning through volunteering, part-time job, freelancing, hobbies or any way possible.
