Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh,

last year in june i started going to driving school and this year i already had 2 practical exams and i both failed, one in may and one in june. i cried so much because i always drive good in the lessons and as soon as i am in my exam i fail. each exam costs 200 euro and all the money i saved is finished and i feel so bad and cant stop crying. i feel like a loser. i just dont pass my exam its been one year since i started my licence and i still did not finished it. i dont know what to do anymore, the money is gone which i hardly saved and i can feel that my family is disappointed too ( they did not say anything and hugged me and said dont worry, but i know that they are kinda disappointed that i failed twice ) my family doesnt have so much money. i prayed so much but feel like god doesnt help me. i think im in a little depression, i sleep all day long and dont eat anything. my mother said : jo rabb karda changa karda & saara kuch sahi wakht te milda. but i dont see anything good anymore, we could really use the money for more important things. i cant stop crying, my next exam is in a few days andi think i will fail again. this is like a huge pressure on me. I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT I AM EXPECTING BUT I HOPE ANYONE CAN HELP ME PLEASE.

My personal opinion.

You've failed the tests, again and again. If you think that you will fail, your mind and body will prepare itself unconsciously for failure. Your attitude affects your body, the feeling in your digestive system and your attention. The big risk now will be that your mind is in a state of a "self fulfilling prophecy". A negative spiral if you will.

You've decided to FAIL. You may not have thought about it when you tell to your friends: "I'm so bad and I don't stand a chance." You can see in your inner picture that you will fail both school and the driver license and what a shame that would be, your parents will get mad at you etc.

It's an attitude issue mostly. If you thought like first time you gave the test."I've done good at practice lessons, I will clear this and my mom will be so happy etc." Easier said then done, but with a shift of our attitude we can use it for our benefit. If you have formulated, set an conscious goal and visualised that you passed your test. Then you've taken a big step. Now you have too study of course and not just visualise.

There are good material on the internet that speak about similair issues. Here's a some of that material:

I recommend that you watch these in order.

PS: I failed my driver license 7 times and the total cost for me was between 3000-4000 euroes. So I'm talking from personal experiances. Good luck!

Well success is measured by falling 7 times and getting up the eighth time. I know your sad by this, but its not the end of the world, you can try again. All great leaders have failed at one point in their life but they still kept trying repeatedly till they were successful. Remember a toddler attempts to walk but at first few times they fall but they keep trying till they learn to walk. Go take your next driving road test but before you take it have a positive attitude about yourself "yes I can do it".
