Question –
 

I was a bright student right from the childhood. I got 84% in class 10th (ICSE board). In spite of all these things I got deviated from my aim due to friendship. I started watching porn and started masturbation. My class 11 result came yesterday and I just got passed by one marks.


I am very depressed about the situation right now. I read many inspirational books but the effect only lasts for certain days. I just want to change but that confidence is not coming which I had earlier. I am totally confused. I wanted to crack IIT but having wasted class 11, I don’t see any hope for that. Please advise me what to do?

Expert Advice –

Dear Kexxxx,


Hope you very well know that there is no use of “crying over spilt milk”. One poor performance in your academic in not going to affect your life unless and otherwise you are going to preoccupied by it and waste your time brooding over it. Consistent brooding is only going to develop a sense of learned helplessness which would limit you from using your real potential. Try to explore what habits or methods had lead to the current situation.


Don’t just feel guilty about it, but make a determination within yourself that you will not involve in these habits at least till such time that you have achieved your goal. Understand that with your current marks making it to IIT may be difficult but not impossible. If you are willing to put forth the fullest of your efforts in a systematic manner, still there are possibilities that you can make it. Just that when you get frustrated by the thought that you have to work harder than other, pacify by telling yourself that you are compensating the time you enjoyed during +1 by working harder now. Stop brooding, stop your detrimental habits and start working immediately with the focus on your goal and you can achieve what you want.


Take care.
