Everyone face success and failure in their life; if one face failure in their life, that does not mean that person is useless or having less knowledge. Failures are the way to get success in everyone’s life. Here I would like to talk about a time when I made many efforts to complete my job, but I failed.

I vividly remember this was the time when I was in matriculation, and I have to make an environmental project from waste material. I started collecting raw material from several places, like I got some stuff from my house and some I got from my neighbours. Finally, I started making my project as a base. I used a thermocol sheet, and I painted it in different colours according to the requirement.

I used cardboard, broken bangles, used wires, cotton puffs, some used clothes, some old hairpins and many more. Due to excitement, I forgot that I was using a weak surface, and I did my project on it. Initially, it creates a problem to fix it due to heavyweight. But somehow, I fix all these things when I complete my project and place it in a safe place. But to my dismay, when I took it, it broke from between. I was distraught and sad when I saw everything on the floor. My whole efforts got ruin in just a few seconds. My tears rolled down, and I cried a lot. My mother came and consoled me, and she tried to help me, but she was not able to fix it.

After some time, I collected everything and somehow managed to fix it, and I showed it to my faculty. I was not that satisfied with my project.
