UPSC Prelims 2018 Results: Move ahead
So the wait is over! UPSC Prelims result is out and the fate of thousands of aspirants has been locked by the coveted pdf. But is there anything new this time? Not exactly! Baring the number and names of successful candidates, nothing actually changes year after year. For UPSC, conducting the Civil Services Examination is a job that they have done fairly well for many years. But for you, it is the holy grail of your career. But so what? Still, it doesn’t change a thing! The Civil Services Examination has been and will always be the same- a process that repeats itself year after year.
This is where the learning lies. What we understand as an end is a process and if we internalise this reality, nothing can stop us. This learning gives us the courage to face failures and overcome hurdles to succeed eventually. There are many who qualify prelims in the very first attempt but end up flunking Mains. On the other hand, there are many who have failed in multiple attempts to even qualify Prelims, become IAS in their last attempt. It signifies one thing- Civil Services Examination is a process and you are merely an actor in that. Success and failures mean little at this stage. In fact, success can sometimes be a roadblock while failures may prove to be a blessing in disguise. We don’t know if you have qualified Prelims this year. But we have a message for you:
If you have qualified: Congratulations! You have overcome the first hurdle. You have shown that hard work, perseverance and the will to give the best can make everything possible. You have earned a place in a list of selected few who would join the race to the next stage.
At this point of time, successful candidates have two options:
Option 1: Start celebrating and think that their talent and hard work have done the trick for them and that they can excel in the next stage also. In this process, they will grow arrogant, become complacent and even reduce their efforts.
It happens with a majority of candidates and more often than not, results are disastrous. One must realise that qualifying Prelims is neither the final destination nor a stamp of one’s intellectual superiority. Prelims simply filter the sincere candidates from a lot of almost half a million so that it becomes easier for UPSC to evaluate the candidates on certain parameters set by them.
Option 2: Be thankful that their efforts have paid off and start preparing for the next phase with more vigour and determination. If one belongs to this category, one’s chances of cracking Mains are high obviously. Final success in UPSC is made of small successes and qualifying prelims is one of them. One who realises this and becomes even more eager to do better in the next phase will surely taste success. We want you to be in this category.
Even those who couldn’t qualify will have two options:
Option 1: Become Devdas and start shedding tears for their ‘failure’. Those who choose this option get nothing out of it. People having a sense of entitlement suffer from this syndrome. They think that UPSC has been unkind and unfair to them and that they had given their best already.
Such an outlook drags the person back. It is a negative attitude that will take one nowhere.
Option 2: Overcome the pain of rejection and start introspecting. Many candidates would consider their failure in prelims a mere setback in a long journey. They will lose no time in gathering themselves up and start focussing on areas that have betrayed them in Prelims.
Such candidates would taste success in their next attempt. The best part about their positive attitude is that they consider small failures as a stepping stone just as successes are mere milestones. We want you to be in this category.
So Guys! Irrespective of the results, you have the only option left- MOVE! You must move in the right direction, accelerate at the right time and never hit the reverse gear. From here onwards you have to look forward and strive your best in the process,
Like always, our support and guidance will be there throughout your journey and we will stand by your side in your moments of doubt and sadness.
