No buzz word gets more attention or is more widely desired than the word ‘success.’ However, no successful person you ever heard of accomplished their goal in one go or touched the summit overnight without failure. Now you ask yourself which one is greater for you, your desire to succeed, or your fear of failing. Engineering Service Exam is all about your perseverance, clarity of mind, memory, strategy and time management. If you fail in the first attempt; you get to know the areas you need to work upon. Use that lesson and prepare yourself to try again. Here’s how you can overcome failure in ESE and be optimistic in your subsequent attempts:
Have you dreamt of becoming an IES officer, only to quit too early?
You need to get surrounded by positive people. There will be a lot of negativity, there will be some people who deliberately bring negativity into your life. You need to create a positive environment around and inside you. Even if you fail, even if your academic engineering records are not good enough even if you are an average student, you can still crack one of the toughest examinations of engineering if you keep your self-belief intact.
You need to have a proper plan and an appropriate strategy to crack ESE. You have started thinking that you have already put all your effort and hard work and there is no scope for improvement. This is the main part that needs serious consideration. Whatever the reasons have been for you, but not qualifying implies lack of something somewhere.
Maybe this is the most basic and common advice you will get from all the ESE officers. If you are planning to do something extraordinary, you need to take the small steps to climb up to your destination. There is no shortcut. Planning and strategy originate on a paper but after that comes the difficult and important part, execution. Fix your daily goal or weekly or monthly goals. And if you achieve those small goals you will feel satisfied. On completing a single goal you will get an idea for a bigger goal. You have to conquer these small goals first to reach your summit.
What distinguishes successful students from other candidates are making a daily routine, setting small goals, and, most importantly, sticking to your routine and strategy until you achieve it. Maintain a journal writing your routine and your daily goals with a timetable. At the end of the day analyze your performance and give marks according to your achievement. After analyzing your previous day's results and marks, set your goal for the next day. This process will help you to stay energized for each and every day and also for a longer run.
Without being disappointed after failing the ESE exam try to analyze which part is your weak point.
“Winners are not people who never fail, but the ones who never quit.”
Nothing can ever fail you until and unless you declare to yourself, that you have failed. You only have to work hard. Hardships, failure will come, you will be embarrassed, you will feel broken but you must not quit. Have your priorities set, and goals sorted along with being dedicated to your dreams. Make the most of your time, effort, and energy. Your hard work, efforts, your time all will be worth it once you can achieve your goal. We wish you the best of luck and hope you will ace the ESE exam in the future.
