Developing Proactive Nature
When we make a promise to ourselves & keep it we take the first step towards development of our proactive nature. We can set daily or weekly targets in various spheres of our lives and attain them. Being able to achieve targets set for the first week has been critical in the process of self improvement for most of my students. This week gave them the confidence and self belief to attain their monthly targets. Their planned schedules faced hindrances like family and health issues, and sometimes sheer fatigue. These hindrances did not deter them from losing their sense of organized living and discipline.
By this simple step by step process we can improve our self control, sense of responsibility & consequently self confidence. We find ourselves in greater control of our lives, being driven more by our values &much lesser by others & our impulses. A value driven student will find it easy to concentrate on his studies (a target set by him/her) while all his/her friends are enjoying watching an Indian Premier League match! A value driven working professional will find it convenient to exercise regularly, or invest in his growth while his colleagues waste their free time in amusement and gossip. Sustained living in this manner for a few weeks & months makes us more responsible in our lives. We will not even realize how this step by step, evolutionary growth, will have a revolutionary impact on our lives!
