“You have been told that, even like a chain, you are as weak as your weakest link.
This is but half the truth.
You are also as strong as your strongest link.
To measure you by your smallest deed is to reckon the power of the ocean
by the frailty of its foam.
To judge you by your failures is to cast blame upon the seasons for their inconstancy.”
-Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
As a normal human being, we all have both positive and negative points; We have Strengths and Weaknesses; We have good and bad traits; We have success and failures. You might have failed once or twice in the UPSC prelims or mains. But we don’t have to brand ourselves a failed one. We don’t have to doubt our capabilities. We don’t have to get identified with few weaknesses. But we should continuously search our good traits, reflect on past successes and hypnotize our subconscious mind that “I am more than What I appear to be. I have all the Strengths to get a good rank in CSE-2021”. Because, You are also as strong as your strongest link
