You CAN Improve : By Being Your Child’s Inspiration !

Standard

In view of the the topic mentioned above perhaps maybe some or many of us would find it rather very hard to believe in the above statement moreover it may scare some.

why ?

Because We all share the same level and space of committing mistakes as we are not born perfect and the ones who are not perfect have limited scope of becoming role models or inspires or even leaders.

And its absolutely wrong if some of us believe in the statement right above, because i think and strongly feel that to become a source of inspiration and leader one need not be perfect, one should always have that space to commit an error and then working over it to improve.

Life is too long to live and there are plenty of situations and contexts where one can err , and its not that if one happens to do an error one cannot be the leader but it becomes difficult to work over such roles if after mistakes one tries to defend it by making a lot of excuses in a rush or even forgetting to care about the same.  this may take a larger picture even because when the mistake was absorbed by a large number of people around you, and by chance there was nothing you did at that time to amend or improve it, then for sure your impression may not be good on them.

Its a routine that people have short memory when it comes to recollecting about a person,  the negative memories flood over the positive ones and they create a much larger picture of the whole personality that creates an overall disapproval for him/her. And therefore even on working hard, having great potential and skills some people cannot become leaders or great role models.

One thing Can be done to overcome mistakes is to refresh people’s memory by immediately following up the mistake by making apologies to save your impressions forever in the memories of people who can remember about you as the person who is visibly a good man/woman, noble, humble, honest, and mature to accept his/ her mistake and apologize or improve it having the courage to do so in front of everyone.

This Gesture is immensely approved and seen as mark of respect and honor, everyone appreciates this kind of behavior .

Its not that difficult to do so because every action has its repercussion and it may seem that in times today it is foolish to admit mistakes in front of so many people be it work or home, it seriously puts a badge over that person who may seem to be a bundle of mistakes and errors .

But if you have the sheer courage to accept it and learn the lesson from it and pass that lesson to others would make a significant  difference and this is the key point to let others learn .

The best way to become an inspiration for self and others is to begin at home where often parents commit a variety of mistakes in front of their kids, like simple things we do, forgetting to take them for outing or smoking even after promising them to quit . Kids are great observers they observe every action the elders do and being honest and sincere with them is the best way one can enrich their good traits and solidify them so that it becomes a practice and follows you as your integral part of Integrity .

The simplest and sweetest way to improve is be transparent with your kids and become their source of Inspiration and not only that even their Role Model .

Honesty : Need of Every Eon

Standard

Honesty ! Hmmm,  does this word scare you away or makes you feel proud ?

Evidently there is a mixed of both when you reflect in the past or present and a series of situations come into the mind where you have  spoken the truth or lied to anyone or everyone, and the feelings that followed inside you of being proud , guilty , saved the day or self.

In view of the above one thing everyone would agree for is that, You will always feel comfortable with “Truth ” as it makes you feel stronger, more comfortable , free from feelings of guilt, shame and embarrassment, lets you have a proud good night sleep and teach the value of same to the young ones.

Today we may come across people from all walks of life who share quite similar traits ranging from being clever,  lazy, making excuses or lying, diplomatic, unsympathetic, untrustworthy and narcissistic etc. this is a usual sight around you among relatives, friends or colleagues at workplace. The point is not what others have in them as part of their personality that makes them stand where they are today but to observe and undo what has become common now from our lives so that we can Stand Out.

To Stand Out among the rest be it among your friends or work place, one can cultivate and nourish the Habit of Honesty through regular practice of speaking Truth as “Truth is easy to remember than a lie” and be consistent with it every time and in every situation.

Its No doubt a tough task to practice and walk the path of truth and never give it up even in tough times , is a trait that develops after long years of practice and experiments, and the regularity and permanence of this ritual alone makes one Stand out and be considered as Unique and appear bright among the rest. Moreover its a feeling that makes you feel enlightened, light, proud and happy whenever you introspect and have a one on one with Your Real Self that matches Your Ideal Self .

Even Your friends , Boss , colleagues shall reach for you seeking Your advice, opinion, and contribution in the most important tasks and assignments .

We are all well aware about the growing competitive trends in every field and it doesn’t limit anyone to choose the path they take up to walk the ladder of success and it can be any and any traits or trick they follow to achieve it . It may not matter to some but it matters a lot in the work culture as the people in power positions , top bosses,do actually look for honest employees who can be trusted upon and where they can share companies status , strengths and weaknesses with them as well.

Then be sure about if you have Honesty as your core trait , be proud of it and forward it to your young ones and peers, as its easy to be considered as part of the crowd but it really is worth to be one among the crowd.
