Robert Bruce and the Spider

January 15, 2019

self confidenceThis story I heard so many times from my father in my younger age. It is really self-grooming story. The story is following.

Robert Bruce was the King of Scotland. He was defeated by his enemy. He escaped from the battlefield and ran away to the forest. He was very sad and in despair. At last, he took shelter in a cave.

He tried to come back to his country and make it free. Several attempts were made but all his efforts were in vain. He fought against the enemy several times but was driven back. After his defeat in several wars, he spent his days in utter despair and sorrow. He gave up the idea of fighting more wars.

While he was lying in the cave, he saw a spider. It was trying to climb up the wall. Its aim was to reach up to the top. It made seven attempts to reach the top of the wall but failed. Thought it had failed seven times, it did not give up its efforts. It tried again and again. At last, it succeeded.

Robert Bruce was curiously watching the spider. He learned a lesson from the repeated efforts of the spider and its ultimate success. The king again thought of fighting another war against the enemy. He came out of the cave and organized his army once again. At last, he made a final attack against the enemy. The enemy was defeated and was driven away from his country. Thus Robert Bruce succeeded in his final attempt.

This story I heard lots of time from my father when I failed in some task and sat down with sorrow. My father always told me about Gita’s knowledge “कर्म करो और फल की इच्छा मत करो. क्यों की कर्म करना आप के हाथ में है और फल देना ईश्वर के हाथ में है” If you do not make any effort then how can you get success. It means you need to put efforts again and again until you are getting success. Do not leave your attempt.

I am getting so many responses about the failure to get fresher Oracle DBA job, now what should need to do. I am advising them to try again and again until getting success. Never bother about your failure. Try to concentrate on your mistakes and try to avoid those mistakes in the next attempt. Then you would get success definitely and it is my promise. Always boost up your self-confidence and go ahead for attempting new attempt.

Wish you all the best.
