“There’s no such thing as failure on the lexicon of youth”, oh crap I really forgot who’s line this is.
Anyway, 23 is coming. Honestly, it feels like nothing. Question, am I changing? am I growing up? or I keep on being myself, as it is?
On my 22, I experienced something that maybe not all of us can get, working at the orange house for the new media team under supervisory of mr.unspun. It’s been great for me joining his team, been great for me learning from the natural-new media-conversationist, been great, beeeeeen greaaaaat. But, decision have been made, I have to pick my way, I want to continue my study on politics while I can.
I remember a line, unspun said to me once during my evaluation time. “Aditya, you’re a young man, you should do everything, do whatever you want! You know, just do it!”. It took not so long, until a book came up with a quote: There’s no such thing as failure on the lexicon of youth.
Keyword: Youth, Lexicon, Failure. Why failure so often comes up on our mind?
Please see a dialogue below
Ms.A: Why don’t you talk and show me some initiatives?
Mr.B: *silent* umm.. I was..too afraid too talk my mind up..
Ms.A: Why is that happening to you?
Mr.B: well…*silent* I was too afraid to be failed..
Ms.A: WTF?! You’re too young to be afraid of failure. You have so much times to do false act (read it as positive false not negative one), just do it! Everyone believes on you. You don’t believe on yourself?! Oh C’mon!
Mr.B: blurrp bluurrp blurrrpp..*shocked and collapsed*
Conclusion: The word failure comes up when we don’t believe in ourselves.
In this case, trust given by people was read as a burden to Mr. B. This burden then weighting his shoulder, he get a bit confused, he disbelieve his own self, and then some “bad” word suddenly appear in his mind. Failed, Failure, Shame, Shameful..
So? What to do? Here’s what to do.. Read this line again: There’s no such thing as failure on the lexicon of youth.
See, youth time especially between 20 to 30 are the perfect time to do some fault, make some noise and you know, just do everything that we wanted. That’s way its called the “roaring twenties”.
Q: Am I ready to roar on my twenties? Nay or Yay?
A: Nay yey, I have to study more, let me take some time, you might wanna ask me again then..
