Is Life Being Unfair On You…
Around two weeks ago I was called to judge a talent contest at one of the
city colleges. I noticed all the participants were given slips of paper with
a topic written on it and told to come up and speak for three minutes. Lots
were drawn as to who would be the first speaker and the next and the next.
The first contestant I noticed looked a little disgruntled as he got onto
the podium to address the others.
“My fellow students and respected judges,” he said loudly, “this is an
I, along with my fellow judges looked up surprised. “I have been given this
paper,” he continued, “to speak on a subject with just a few minutes
preparation whereas those after me have more time to work on their speech.
This is unfair!” He then proceeded to leave the stage and stormed out of the
hall. Nobody missed him and the contest went on smoothly.
I met him on the landing as I was being escorted out later.
“Who said life is fair?” I asked him with a smile. He looked at me startled

They fight regardless whether the battle is fair or unfair. Stop telling the
world about the unfair deal you’ve got out of life; start battling the
unfair, come out victorious..!
