Conquering Faults in Me!

When engaged in conversation – either with friends, during an interview – or when you do some soul-searching –, it often happens that our qualities and defaults are broached… This is a very instructive practice.

Qualities that do some good

Describing our qualities is something we willingly do most of the time. Either we talk for hours about them or we describe them in a more humble manner in order to avoid boasting. It is all a matter of character!

In fact, whether we do not dare talk about them, whether we tacitly speak about them or whether we extensively mention them (some people do so), we often derive some sort of pleasure.

Most people sometimes feel satisfied when they talk about themselves. Others become extremely loquacious and never stop mentioning themselves unless we stop them!
It is true that thinking about our qualities is a great exercise, one that enables us to take stock of who we are. Being well aware of our resources can help us regain self-confidence.

Shortcomings to know

However, when the time comes to mentioning shortcomings, many people change their attitude. What? Shortcomings? That is impossible!

Some are embarrassed and would like to talk about something else, some minimize them and some apologize for them!

By acting this way, they deprive themselves of a formidable reservoir of opportunities designed to change their life and improve. These shortcomings should not be rejected. Instead, they should be used.

Forge ahead in life thanks to your shortcomings!

Everybody has shortcomings, and that is a good thing! Just like a bird that needs both wings to fly, human beings need to rely on their qualities and shortcomings to progress and be successful.

They are indispensable! Doing without the potential of our shortcomings would amount to hoping that a bird may fly with just one wing!

It is important to know that but there is more: we need to make good use of our qualities but also of our shortcomings. I will not expand on qualities because it is easy. You just need to not overestimate them to take full advantage of them.

As for shortcomings, consider them with interest and do not reject them. They always reveal something important. Turn them into friends ready to help you and not enemies standing in your way.

Use your shortcomings to progress, either by doing the opposite of your shortcomings or by making sure you do not let them dominate you.

LOL-@-Self

It is said that laughing is part of Man and that it is essential to lead a successful life. Admittedly, everyone likes to laugh, have fun, and party but laughing can also turn into mockery.

Can we laugh about anything?

This is a question that is often asked: “can we laugh about anything?” And the answer is both yes and no.

We can laugh about anything since there is no limit to laughing and since everything can make us laugh or just smile.

The only limit is simple: when laughing becomes synonymous with demeaning, ridiculing, hurting, humiliating people… it goes beyond its very own limits.

Once these limits are set, limits that should be obvious furthermore, it is up to you to decide whether you can laugh at yourself and, therefore, do some self-analysis.

It is indeed easy to make fun of others but it is also a kind way of emphasizing something they should change in the way they talk or act. Everyone can do that.

Laugh at yourself

The hardest part is to laugh at yourself! This is not easy but so gratifying! I would even say that it is a sign of wisdom and humility.

Laughing at yourself is a way of not taking yourself seriously and looking on the bright side of life. This does not mean that you should make fun of your shortcomings but that you should put life and events into perspective, without thinking the world revolves around you.

Also, laughing at yourself consists in analyzing what is happening in a casual – not grave – way and making the most of this experience whether good or bad comes from it.

Laughing at yourself enables you to play down the significance of some situations and avoid attaching too much importance to things that are not significant so you can attach importance to those that really matter!

Being a Path-Finder!

To find your own path, you need to keep moving forward.

Nothing is predetermined in life. It’s futile to try and conform to a model of behavior, to be like someone you know and admire. Because when it comes down to it, what do you really know about them?

The image you have of someone rarely corresponds to their reality.

It’s good to listen to the advice people give you, but always remember to apply it in your own way, leaving your own mark.

A choice is offered to you at each crossroads you come to. You must make a decision, even if it’s only to hesitate.

Above all, you need to be self-confident, move forward, and find or create your own path in life.
