Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fathe!

I'm a senior high school student and when it comes to Exams I really freak out. I have high ambitions and I when I get a terrible mark i feel like I am worthless because other people did better than me.

I just sat my maths exam and I felt really pathetic and hopeless I have no idea whether I even passed rather than scored a good grade! I'm terrified. I don't know what to do but I do believe that God will help me, I really put my trust in God but I'm still very doubtful and I hate that. I just want it to stop. I want to just get rid of these thoughts I HATE IT! I start to cry and cry but I know that it doesn't help but I just can't seem to see the light at the end of my dark tunnel. I just want to be with my Guru. That is all I want! I hate stress I HATE IT!

Has anybody else ever felt this way and how am i supposed to control my felling of hopelessness????? Please help...

Thanks for reading.

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fathe!

Bhen Ji - Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki Fateh!

What is it that you are doubtful about? Your self? God?

There are two forces in this world which govern you: your destiny and your fate. Fear and love are the two forces which make us keep going. The future represents one thing, it represents fear. Tomorrow is always symbolic of fear: fear of tomorrow, fear of unknown, doubt about self, doubt about strength, doubt about everything. There are three very important words that the Guru says: param, karam, dharam.

Param means doubt. Karam means action and reaction. Dharam means excellence of reality. Dharam is the path that Maharaj Ji laid for us.

A Sikh is a person who is learning. Every day. Sikhia means learning. Sikh means wisdom. Khalsa means pure. Pure means pure. Guru Gobind Singh created the sense of purity. That is Kaur.

So, in your imagination, you have our fears of things that lie in the future. Now it is time to give up those fears and doubts. The simple formula for happiness is this: in the morning you get up look in the mirror and call on your self 'Wahe Guru Ji ka Khalsa, Wahe Guru Ji ki Fateh!' and the whole day remember that you are a Kaur. Your father has everything well in hand and he is taking good care of you. It is all unfolding as it should. Have no doudt of your own excellence. Be that.

Thank you so much. I still don't know what I scored but I'm much happier because in some of my other classes I was the top of the class and if I didn't do too well in my maths exam my parents say that they will find me a tutor. I feel so much better.

I never doubted God and I hope I never will but I have always doubted myself I have a very low self esteem. Once again thank you very much. God is great!

Trust Guru Ji, project by doing Ardaas the things you wish and receive it instantly by being joyful and feeling as if you have it the moment you ask. You will see the miracle of Ardaas. Don't ask you re self how and when, cause then you send unclear frequency to universe and you will get the same in response. Let the universe serve you and just relax and receive. I had the same problem, by being always nervous before exam and before getting the result. Don't feel disappointed if you don't pass. Sometimes Guru let's us fail so that we can have an experience which is necessary at the moment, which in conclusion is not a real fail cause you grow spiritually and you get more than by not failing. Satnam Waheguru
