She had no one to talk to so she dialed her school teacher, “I am miserable. Everything i touch fails. I am just a failure.” she cried.
The teacher admonished her, “You can’t be a failure, you can only fail, that is the right way of saying it!”
The student sighed, “Can you please not correct my English today Sir!”
The teacher laughed, “You idiot, what i am saying is , failure is not a person, it’s an event. How can you be an event? And let me tell you a secret, the only way to success is to fail your way to success!”
The student began to cry with gratitude.
On the occasion of Guru Purnima i thank everyone who spared the time to teach me.
