Sacrifices make a Masterpiece!

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. – Pele

It takes me back to the days when I was a student. When board exams were around the corner; curfew would set in my home. The Radio and the television would be switched off. Not only was I cocooned to my room; but even my parents had cut off all ties with my extended family and friends on Sundays' and even talked in whispers. The only distraction would be the telephone; but even that my mom would keep the talk to the minimum and I would usually hear her end her talk with, "Let's meet after R's board exams." 

The whole scenario was revolving around me and my schedule that at times I would get overwhelmed and pressured to do well. 'What if I don't the whole society will mock me' were the nightmares I would get. Dreams of dejection, mockery, and frowning upon were more than ever! 

At times I would even confide in my mom asking her to not broadcast to the whole world, but then she had a very concise response. "You can't change them ever! They will even react if you succeed!" 

That was an eye-opener!

My train of thoughts started chugging on the opposite track where the goal was bright and luminous accompanied by laughter and celebration. That brought a smile, but then I realized the journey to that goal is sweaty, toiled with hard labor and sacrifice of lots of Me time to grasp the fundamentals of physics, biology, chemistry, and mathematics. I gave up daydreaming and toiled along. 

Days were numbered, but the goal made me smile so everything around me was temporary as I knew I wanted to latch on to that target. 

Soon the exams were over. The wait time was up, and the results were out! 

My hard work paid off!! I got into my dream college and today am happy at how my life turned out. 

If a writer chooses to step away from social media to create a master piece. So be it! 

Sacrifices made to attain that step are brief, but they are so worth it! 

Conclusion: A dream doesn't become a reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. Colin Powell


Is leaving the social media the right step for those who wish to focus on writing? Must writers stop interacting even in real life?#GoodWriting
