The World doesn’t end with IBPS PO – 10 Prestigious exams to look out for.


Dear Readers

The IBPS PO Prelims results announced last week brought immense joy and happiness to selected candidates. But at the same time, these results also brought gloom and despair for candidates who couldn’t clear it. It left your dreams shattered and bruised your confidence badly. After all, you had also prepared as hard and performed on par with the candidates who got selected.

Many of you have sent us emails, personal messages and commented on our blog branding yourselves as failures and losers. I can sympathize with all of you and say that without a doubt, the time is difficult and life is rough. Its testing your patience and your inner self to the core. You are feeling trapped in a tunnel with no sight of light. But it will only push you deeper in this conundrum. Instead I will tell you that whatever had to happen, has already happened. You can’t  change the fact that you didn’t got selected. You have been razed down. So What.? Get up, Dust yourself off and get back to being awesome.

Motivational Quotes

Let me elaborate how the law of secret works.

As a human being you emit thoughts and the universe matches the frequency of your thought. So if you continue being sad, the universe will work in a way to make you even worse. Similarly if you feel motivated , happy and energetic, the universe will work in a way to make you even happier. Remember the famous dialogue from Om Shanti Om:


This is exceptionally true. Not just in a filmy way but in our dear reality. Starting today stop cursing your fate. You can curse it all you want but ultimately it won’t get you the results. Instead identify your weaknesses and remember never to lie to yourself. You can let people console you, tell you its okay and whine like a child or you can decide you will never let it happen again.

Push yourself


Next thing is to get your emotional high under control. As human beings we feel a variety of emotions when we fail in addition to what most animals feel. We feel shame, guilt and even remorse after failing whereas animals (even an ant) instead of feeling sad or dejected, keep working until they succeed. So the first thing is to get rid of the emotional baggage you are carrying. Get your anger, frustration out. Shout, scream or weep until you sleep but get it out! Remember getting it out doesn’t means repeating it again and again. It means letting that anger go. Give some time to yourself. Treat yourself. Do things that make you happy and make you feel ecstatic. Get the law to work for you not against you.

After you are done venting out your emotions, think what is next. For your benefit we have prepared a list of upcoming exams you can prepare for and get selected.
