People are unique in many
ways. We possess strengths, the things we are good at. We acquire these
strengths by virtue of education, practice, experience etc. Similarly, we have
a few areas of development as well. These are things that we can much better at
than the present level. These areas of development limit us and restrict us in
many ways than we may imagine. It results in missed opportunities, a better
chance at life, misunderstandings etc.
The very fact that we
have identified these shortcomings in us is because we still have to work
towards them. It could be anything like overcoming an obstacle, getting rid of
a habit or how we deal with people in general. We either know these ourselves
or we receive feedback from people who are our well-wishers.
It is quite possible that
we may receive this feedback from multiple people on more than one occasion.
This is a clear indication that we either start working on it immediately or
keep facing the same problem over and over again. These identified things or habits
may vary from person to person. It could be anything like lying, cheating,
anger management issues etc.
One thing is clear,
whatever the issue is it is bound to be detrimental or even destructive to a
relationship, especially in severe cases. Another thing that is even clearer is
it is simply not going to disappear on its own, unless we put efforts into
working towards these issues. A few pointers below will help structure our
approach in working towards this:
• Mind matters: Clarity in identifying the exact thing that we want
to work on and making up our mind is the first and crucial step. Our mind is
stronger than we can even fathom. Should we make up our mind and put efforts
there is hardly anything that we cannot work on.
• Goal setting: Once we have made up our mind, the next step is
putting efforts towards it. This is the most difficult part because it requires
perseverance, however it is not impossible though.
• Choosing the right methodology to implement is the key: Different
things work for different people. For some people constantly reminding
themselves of the goal works, for others taking an oath works. We must identify
what works for us and put a conscious effort towards it.
Once we work towards a
specific goal within a time period, the results will be a rewarding experience.
We are bound to regret waiting to have done it for so long and thank ourselves for having finally implemented it. Like they always say better late than never. I
wish my readers to identify issues if any, work on them and experience a quality
