How We Turn our Disadvantage to Advantage-by Gharwang Rinpoche

HOW WE TURN OUR DISADVANTAGE TO ADVANTAGE

by Zurmang Gharwang on Saturday, April 23, 2011 at 9:01am

Life throws up many surprises and you just have to be opportunistic to keep ahead to achieve success. For instance, when you go to a shopping centre, the sales person will always listen with patience and calmness, even though, we may be wrong. At the end of the day, we lose and they will win.  Because we will buy something and that’s what they want. In life, happiness, success and achievement are not always what we get.

Failure could be a way to success. For example, when we make a mistake, we learn and if we make the same mistake again, it means we never learn. Moreover, second mistake may bring us closer to failure. Therefore, whatever that comes our way, we have to take it positively and in such a way, we will have more desirable opportunities than less fortunate ones. Life is not just about luck and power; it is all about how we can turn our disadvantage to our advantage. We all know that even poison, if you know how to use it, poison can save many life and if you don’t know how to take medicine, it will take away your life. In addition, whatever that comes to us, we have to look at it from many different angles, then we will see the whole picture. By simply looking at one side, we may not see everything. We can’t just reject whatever that comes our way, because one day, even a piece of paper can be useful object. In conclusion, what all mean is that we have to be open to everything and if we are wise, we don’t restrict our opportunities because everything that comes to us is a way to success!

With love
