These days many youths are wandering here and there in search of good opportunities in life. Most of these youths do believe that there is no opportunity in Nepal. Neither the education of our country nor the career outlets are productive here. That is why many of them make the developed American, European or Gulf countries their destination.
Winston S. Churchill once said, “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” It is true that competition has become tough, when hundreds of applicants line up for a single job, but there is no point to be completely disappointed. I am always inspired by Milton Berle who told, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can, there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.” This realistic line of Sarah Caldwell is a great source of inspiration and motivation. In the super-hit Indian movie “Three idiots” also, this principle has been depicted successfully. This is also the line of action, in reality.
Even in Bhagwad Gita, Shree Krishna told Arjun that one has a right to perform his prescribed duty, but he is not entitled to
the fruits of action. One needs
to be prepared and some day
his chance will surely come.
But if you remain pessimistic and don’t do a single thing,
you will remain backwards for ever.
There are various opportunities even in our country. But we need to sort out them carefully. There are many people in our country who earn more than other Nepalis or foreigners working abroad. Even with the agricultural profession many people have become billionaires here. One can succeed in business also, but s/he needs to find the correct place as per current demand.
For students there are various opportunities. The Embassy of India and other countries have been providing annually hundreds of full scholarships for Nepali students. There are such quotas in Nepali institutions too. The Public Service Commission is recruiting thousands of youths for government jobs annually. Private sectors are also providing jobs for best candidates.
The major thing one needs is hard work and aspiration. Competition is tough but if you prove yourself the best, you have opportunities and success ahead. Be optimistic, hard working and search for all opportunities, and I am certain you will be successful. If you fear competition and sit at your home blaming the government only, even god won’t be able to help you.
