"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."
Mrs. Shubhra Gupta
The way the humans have survived and continue to grow stronger in spite of the daunting changes the Earth has witnessed, is remarkable. We need to accept that change is the only constant and the necessity to focus our mindset to adapt to the unpredictable environment is imperative.
‘Change’ challenges you, forces you to come out from the ‘known’ to ‘unknown’, it can be quite disconcerting, but one needs to be proactive to think out-of-the-box, to plot a course constructively and find innovative solutions to unprecedented changes. Accepting change would coerce you to revaluate how to live your life and make correct choices. In the process of learning to adapt to the changes, we acquire an important life skill to equip ourselves with resilience to handle vicissitudes with poise and this is what would make us future ready. Always remember,
"It is not a failure to readjust my sails to fit the waters I find myself in."
"The summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters."
Mr. Atam Prakash Agarwal
The one driving force that inspires all of us is the immeasurable desire to succeed. For each one of us, the definition of success can be different but achieving our objective is that one common motivating factor. With our eye focused at the pinnacle, we work with dedication, willpower, perseverance and don’t leave any stone unturned in inching gradually towards our aim. In the process, we start believing that happiness can be acquired only on the realization of our dreams at some point in the distant future. But is this what really matters in our life? In striving towards our aim, don’t we miss out on those small but significant and precious moments which made us develop into a better human being? In looking too far ahead, don’t we lose sight of the unconditional love and support of those people who have made a positive difference to our life?
Do we ever pause and think that real success lies in becoming aware of one’s full potential as it beautifully unfolds in our endeavour to achieve our ambition? Dear students, it is the journey that matters more than your goal, the lessons you learn and the person you evolve into.
"Keep your face always towards the sunshine—and shadows will fall behind you."
Mrs. Surabhi Dua
The dynamic world that we live in, constantly poses rapid, colossal challenges which can be very overwhelming at times but we have always witnessed the beauty and power of an optimistic mindset and never- say- die spirit of people who have always been successful in transforming the cataclysmic chaos into a better place.
What is that motivating factor which is making the people all over the world, toil day and night to overcome the uncertainty posed by the global challenges? It is their inner steel and positive attitude which enlightens their soul to work for the betterment of mankind.
Do remember, being positive does not mean things will always turn out the way we had expected it to be, we might face other trials and difficulties but we need to see the brighter side of things, learn from our mistakes and move on. Indeed, it is the positive attitude, which helps make better decisions and navigate the unchartered waters that lie ahead in these unpredictable surroundings. One should never doubt one’s optimism and face the world with a smile and hope.
