There are a few ways you could try out to perform better and be at your best. We tell you about a few ways you can bring out the best in yourself and inspire others around you to do the same.
Change is hard, yet is the only constant.
You are capable, nurturing and have full support of family and friends around.
However, when it comes to giving your best, quite often, you feel that there’s a lot more, or much more you could have done.
While self praise is not considered a trait of good personalities, there are a few other ways you could try out to perform better and be at your best.
We tell you about a few ways you can bring out the best in yourself and inspire others around you to do the same. Read on.
1. Explore new things
Most of the times people stop themselves from trying out new things, is because they fear failure. Well, the next time you think of doing something, and the fear of failure stops you, remind yourself that your failure is a proof of your trial. That if you fail, you will get to learn something new, something that you did not know about. After all failure has its own advantage. That shouldn’t stop you from exploring things.
2. Start mentoring
You’d have heard about the mentoring and psychology classes. To be true, nobody can mentor you in a way, as you can do it for yourself. You know about your strengths and weaknesses. You know your ideology and methodology. Make things happen in a good way, for yourself. For example, if you wish to run a marathon, rather than saying you will run 10 kms in two hours, say you will run a good distance, in two hours. Once achieved, you’ll realize the value of mentoring yourself.
3. Cultivate positivity
There are no rules for motivation. Just like great efforts yield good results, the more optimistic is the surrounding; more will be the enthusiasm to do good. Think about one of your outstanding qualities. Now consider a situation where your outstanding quality plays a vital role, yet not the lead. For example, if I am good at writing about politics, it mainly is because I am interested in it, and partly because I can express exactly what I feel, using proper set of words.
4. Redefine your talent
It has been said time and again that each one of us possess a unique talent. The talent, in a way is responsible for one of the outstanding qualities we have. Make a list of things you’re good at doing. In this list, mark what your talent helped you accomplish and what you accomplished using other of your qualities. Think how effective would it be, if you develop something which is a combination of all of those. Encourage people around you to do the same. The encouragement will not just help them succeed, but will also create a positive and supportive environment around.
5. Keep track of things
We are busy and keep getting busier with every passing day. Keeping track sounds like using a fancy app on your smart phone, which counts the calories you’ve lost with every step you, take. Fair enough. But by keeping track of things here, you are measuring the amount of change you brought about. The change was possible because you made it possible. Measure the amount of effort you put in and the magnitude of result it yielded.
Align yourself in a way that brings out the best in you. That what enriches your life, encourages and supports your growth, is what turns failure into feat for you.
You taking a different path, and succeeding irrespective of the failures you faced, will be an inspiration for others.
