Rise or Fall (but with grace)

There is a thing called dignity. It’s not a term confined particularly  to a person’s poise.
I am an un-social person. (This is a kind of virus that has attacked the most part of my brain in recent years. I was way too socializing person when in school.) But, I have a habit of observing people. And in leisurely moments, sitting and wondering why people are the way they are. (This is also a disease, the kind that I haven’t yet planned to cure)
And after a curious survey of different kind of people, I’ve come to a hazy conclusion that, people can’t take a sudden blow – be it positive or negative. People can’t handle pressure.

What I mean to say is, whenever a person gets used to appreciation, good reception, approvals-all-the-time, he/she is taken aback by the slightest of failure. I’ve seen how the color of the face drops drastically when a person who craves for admiration is rejected or disapproved.
It’s heart-wrecking for them.

Same is the case with success. A person who has tasted success for long, doesn’t yearn for it. Instead he/she concentrates on doing the best he/she can. Such a person never looks with anticipation at others for taking pleasure. While a person who has never seen what it feels like to be at the ‘top’ or never had a experience of the glory, can not take the success that has come all at once!

…But people who are at the top, must also have had their first timers (bloopers and goof ups). There must also have been their own ‘first time’ of everything.
According to me, these people continued to be at the top only because they could take the heat that comes attached with success or failure. Not everybody can!

Success or Failure usually goes straight into the head. People start behaving abnormally after that change.
It takes courage to maintain the same composure and dignity that there was in them before the rise or the fall.
It is not everyone’s cup of tea to live through this transition gracefully!
