Today we are in a competitive world. There is no excuse here for not doing efforts. There is no way to get success except doing some sustained efforts and focussed actions. Even then sometimes the circumstances might not favour us which we generally label as destiny or luck factor. Jealousy and ill thoughts are natural traits in some of the people and they would always be having these feelings for the successful people. They may or my not make improvement in them as that is entirely a different matter. In some advanced countries, many students know that education is not their cup of tea and they would never be able to make a career in that so they choose something else after completing some basic education and many times become successful because there are good remuneration there for all sort of miscellaneous jobs. In our country unemployment is much and for good positions there is immense competition and the highly qualified people when they do not get selected feel shy in accepting small jobs and sometimes repent for the higher education that they had acquired.
Knowledge is power.
