Bad teaches us the importance of good. Every bad experince teaches us something important.
Life is like a sinusoidal curve. Every rise is followed by a fall & every fall is followed by a rise. But have you ever wondered why is it so?
Because when we get something, the very first thing which comes to our mind is the fear of losing it. On the other hand, when we don’t have anything we have a hope of getting it some day. Since we all are very much aware of the fact that nothing is permanent in this world. So, when we achieve success we know that it’s not everlasting & instead of enjoying the success, we start worrying about “what if it would not be there?” And this ultimately leads to insecurities & fear. That’s why it’s been said that Success is more difficult to handle than failures. But when we encounter failure we got to know our weaknesses, our mistakes, loopholes. We fail beacuse we made mistakes. Without making mistakes we can never learn because “Mistake is a practical learning experience“. Those who made a lot of mistakes are the best learners. It’s good to make mistakes without repeating them. Every discovery howsoever small or big is achieved after a series of mistakes made by Scientists. That’s why it’s been said that Failure is a key to success.
If you pay a close attention you will find that every bad thing is teaching us something good and every good thing is teaching us something bad. For a better clarity, just go through the following short session of questionnaire:
- When will you get jealous? (By looking at something good or bad)
- When will you hope? (In time of loss or gain)
- When will insecurities arises in you? (During time of success or failure)
- When will you feel compassionate? (By looking at rich or poor)
- When will ego rises in you? (On achieving or losing)
- When will you show empathy? (By looking at someone’s trouble or luxury)
Trait Nature of trait Arises due to
Jealousy Bad Good
Ego Bad Good
Insecurity Bad Good
Compassion Good Bad
Hope Good Bad
Empathy Good Bad
In our weaknesses lies our strength & in our strength lies our weaknesses.
Bad is teaching us good & good teaches us bad. But that really doesn’t mean that good is bad. Because good teaches us bad and bad ultimately leads us to good. So, just think how could it be bad. But don’t worry good will always remain good but now onwards bad will always be good.
Try to understand it from another example “water is life”. If we go into the chemistry of water we will get to know that its pH is 7. It’s neutral & so is life, perfect blend of our positives (strengths) & negatives (weaknesses). Positive & negative together become neutral. So, don’t try to be good or bad. Try to be neutral.
Now, an example from maths. Zero as a single digit is considered bad. And digits 1 to 9 are seen as good. But remember two nines together makes only 99. In order to get 100 we need to add two zeros. It’s bad which makes it good. Good & bad are the same sides of two coin. Positive & negative alone doesn’t make best. It’s only the combination of good & bad which can together make a century (100). Figure out your weaknesses because that only helps you to develop your strengths.
So, now what’s your take on that good is bad or bad is good. What do you want in your life good or bad? Take your time to decide. But you’ll end up having good only.
“think & act” 😃
