The Bouyance of the Rubber Ducks
Updated: Dec 24, 2021
Do you remember the rubber ducks that you played with in your bath tub as a kid? Bath tubs were huge aluminium or plastic utensils that India mommies used to store water, in middle class households, which received only two hours of water supply every morning. Sometimes, when she felt particularly generous or when she wanted us kids out of the way, precious water was given to the kids to play and splash about. Invariably, we carried rubber ducks and put them into the bath tub. We then pushed the ducks underwater. But as soon as we let go, they sprang back up, to the surface of the water. How we squealed with delight. We eagerly repeated the pointless exercise and squealed longer and louder each time, clapping our hands in delight for good measure.
That's how we should approach life, no matter how many times it pushes us down and out, we should spring back in action every single time. Buoyance is one quality that will surely make you a winner. Squeal in delight as you are raring to go once again. Also, learn from your past successes; build on them. It's your very own repertoire of success. Nothing succeeds like success! But, in order to reach the pinnacle of success, you can never let failure bog you down.
