【信報:留英專家分享】失敗只為行得更遠
DSE如果考得不好,同學和家長自然心情沮喪,這是可以諒解的。不過千萬不要讓低落的情緒延長,更不要覺得這樣一次的失手便足以論人生成敗。同學仔不能因這個挫折對自己失去信心,家長亦不要因而覺得阿仔無用、阿女無書緣而感到絕望,人生路漫漫,有時失敗所帶來的爆炸力可能激發更強的動力。
 
失敗,其實只為行得更遠。
 
典型失敗例子 
我自己在英國念預科時,一心想選的是建築系,豈料遭阿爸當頭棒喝:「建築要讀藝術又要讀物理,而且一讀7年喎。」我當時一聽到7年,就覺得時間太長被迫打退堂鼓。及後一心覺得自己英文好,讀法律好似好理所當然,也好彩被我考入法律系,可是讀了幾個月,我發現法律豈只需要英文好,這一科我讀得吃力也終究不是自己那杯茶,於是惟有轉科,最後才修讀了經濟。
 
現在回想起來,讀不上、轉科,當時的我何嘗不是典型的失敗例子?不過最後學業還算有修成正果的一日,經濟系順利畢業後,碩士亦修讀了政治經濟。回港後闖出了自己的一點事業,今日也幸運地擁有英國文化協會傑出校友的榮譽。一路走來,到回頭看時才明白,迷失的那段日子,跌跌撞撞中其實我學到很多東西,也令我整個人變得更硬淨,裝備了我可以踏上今日這條路。沒有昨日的失敗,就沒有今日的自己。
 
我身邊許多留學英國的朋友也有近似經歷,中六中七成績不好,彷彿注定這輩子要做losers,抱著置諸死地而後生的心態去英國讀一兩年書,但後來各人都發展得有聲有色,有的人做生意,有的人投身iBanking,今日都是大家眼中的人生勝利組。
 
所以話,人生中失敗真的不是問題,問題是有沒有在失敗中汲取教訓,有沒有在失敗中鍛煉出堅毅勇氣,有沒有被失敗打倒,還是在灰燼中化身鳳凰而重生。鬼佬話「If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.」,如果失敗沒有打倒你,恭喜你,你將會變得更強壯,能夠行得更遠。各位自覺今年在DSE失手的同學,心灰意冷時你要咬緊牙關為自己加油,從今以後,你會更強的!
