Everyone has come across a person who has many luxuries in their lives and we watch them fighting over petty issues. I know I have, because I was one of those person who had everything and was not realizing it for a very long time.
I have seen many people who have never faced failure and it is only after the encounter of failure, we gain consciousness of the successes we had in the past and also it makes us feel more grateful towards life. Gaining consciousness is one of the best things that can happen to anybody.
For me it was very important to fail at something, because I never had seen failure in my life before and people who have seen only successes have difficulty in cherishing it for a longer time and they tend to think it was meant to be that way. We tend to believe that the successes we had in the past was because of our own effort, and this gave us a sense of hubristic pride which did not last long enough.
We are successful because of the people around us . It was the life situation around us which made us victorious in the past and we have to keep that in mind and we should express gratitude towards all the people who supported us during that time, because it is only because of them we are successful now.
