“You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough”. Life is really small and you should learn to enjoy every bit of it. Experts say you never know that you will return in the same form back again or not so leave nothing for future. Live every moment now and now only. There would be different pleasures for different people and they drive motivation from different sources. Some drive pleasure in serving my motherland while some enjoy luxury in the life provided without doing anything productive. Defence is such a job which not only makes you earn living it makes you earns a real respect which no other job fetches you.
To get this job with officer cadre where you have the biggest responsibility to protect the motherland and citizens without bothering about your comfort, there needs to be a special test which judges you thoroughly in and out and then gives you any such responsibility. SSB is one such exam which judges all your capabilities and tests you for the hardships, pleasures that you will be driving in different terrains protecting and working with a dream in mind and where each second of your life will be devoted to others. Its a exam everyone should give, go and attend once in life time because i am very sure that if you had the courage to visit that place once you will be ready for lifetime to give SSB. Whosoever is selected on the screening day and spends their five days there complains of a positive change that happens with the complete transformation of the personality.
Five day stint at SSB is full of different exams which are designed differently to judge the best of the best and retain them as officers. Moreover who are rejected also at the conference day learn a lot of lessons that are useful for the life. When you move out of that place, you are a changed personality because:
- That place helps you revisit whole of your life and all phases with a experienced officer who takes you swiftly through the path.
- You get a complete chance to appreciate yourself and think over how different people related closely to your life thinks about you.
- You get to realize your weaknesses and force you to suggest ways to improve them.
- You make close friends who will be your best friends in such a short duration because there they are not your competitors but your peers having mutual learning at the peak with each other.
- That places teaches how you should work in a team and how can you contribute, you also lose your feet to decide, make mistakes and learn which is all along the process of examination.
- You get a close view of a life of the officer and how the world changes once you get screened in and also once you get recommended.
Yes I am not imagining things, that place is so beautiful and that’s why I quoted that once who goes their tries and want to get tested again. You might be thinking what magical powers you need to prove yourself at such an exam. Let me quote again it is one of the easiest exams where you just have to reveal yourself and your OLQ’s and follow the mantra below:
“Positive Attitude conquers everything”
Yes that’s what it is needed to get success there and that’s what I followed to reach the pinnacle.
