You went to school. Your teacher promised you the best student in class get to get the prize. The ultimate prize that he won’t even reveal. You studied hard, put an all-nighter, asked questions, you wanted that prize so badly.
The day of the exam came. You think you scored. You believed that you have put all effort out onto the exam papers and you believed you scored with flying colours. You went home happy and cross-fingered that you get the prize.
….. The results were out. You did score. But you scored the second place. Your efforts and hardwork paid, but only managed to put you at the second place. The prize was handed to the first spot. To the the one who scored the highest. Even the difference is just by one point. One mere point. That what matters…
You should not.
You have shown and put the best of yourself out there. Your work have been recognized, but did not manage to put you at the first spot.
Try again yah?…Never ever regret..There’s always a next time – but the prize would be different this time. Just believe that..
