ISC ranking proves the truth: Very difficult to go up, very easy to come downDuring last couple of months, I have been tracking my ranking in ISC very closely. My rank was stagnating at 15 for quite a long time (say around one month). Only last week, my rank has moved upwards to 14. On the other hand, in January, I went to Kolkata after my father's accident. My posts were reduced (not totally stopped) only for one week. After returning from Kolkata, I found that my rank had got reduced by 2 positions.
This fact points to a larger truth of life. It is very difficult to move upwards. We have to strive a lot to move even one step forward in the hilly terrain of success. On the other hand, it is very easy to go downwards. Not much effort is needed-may be it is almost effortless.
This is the reason that patient and continuous effort brings sweet fruit of success. Let us all try to reach the pinnacle. Even if we don't reach the top, the upward journey strengthens our character and mind.
