To be successful in career one must find a job that is mend for you. Many people got this advice from their teachers, elders, Mentors or some influencers. But the fact is they never got to understand the actual meaning of it.
What we all are doing?
The fact is many people in this world live under pressure of doing things to earn and feed his family. Those pressures came from their surroundings as many parents take decisions for the child as “what he/ she must purse in his career?”
Remember the movie “3-Idiots” how R. Madhavan character join the engineering college under pressure of his father and was doing average because he was not fully dedicated to it. His inner skills and self-admiration lures him to become a wild-life Photographer. To an end of his terms when Sharman Joshi’s act of suicide happened, R. Madhavan confronted his father what he like to be in as future. I can quote the words “Be what you like” instead of regretting whole life pursuing a profession with a suppressed feeling you will stuck in it.
Believe In your Self
I must say that one must know himself what he is the best in doing which he can turn into his profession. But in current world of reality we human beings are so much influenced by the society in comparing ourselves with other that we believe “if my neighbour / cousin/ friend can do so even I can do. There is a difference between Inner Ability Skills and Influential Skills.
Have you noticed the IAS and IS? Yes… although terminology is different but still, can be questioned over one aspect of life as “which one is the Higher Designation?” And the answer is known to all “ÏAS”. So, it is absolutely easy to choose your Inner Ability Skills over Influential Skills to attain a career to grow in life.
What is it all About?
It might be confusing to many, “what is it all about?” This is what we want to make it simple to every individual who is reading us.
Johari Window Technique
When anyone wants to reach his goal in life, he must follow the “Johari Window” technique. It helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others. It was created by psychologists Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham in 1955, and is used primarily in self-help groups and corporate settings as a heuristic exercise.
The Johari window model is used to enhance the individual’s perception on others. This model is based on two ideas- trust can be acquired by revealing information about you to others and learning yourselves from their feedbacks. Each person is represented by the Johari model through four quadrants or window pane. It’s a simple and useful tool for understanding and training in terms of self-awareness, personal development, improving communications. It also helps in mapping personality awareness.
To be successful in life one must open his horizons with self-disclosure and feedback from others to attain status what you like to be.
Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs
Everyone wants to reach his self-actualization in life uplifting the desire of basic needs, psychological needs and self-fulfilment needs which can be easily understood from “Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs“.
When we combine the two it makes us to enhance our inner ability skills which we have built with our passion of doing some work that gives us happiness on full involvement and to bring out best results we tend to learn more & more in that field of interest to deliver outstanding performance without feeling dishearten even on giving extra efforts to it.
The best example
There are many Actors who know their Inner ability Skills and are currently got the big name of fame in the world of media as celebrity status as like Kapil Sharma good at delivering stage comic performance but couldn’t act as main lead hero proven with his flop movie against super hit T.V. Show.
So, to conclude the same I would like to quote, “Be what you like” is the desire in every one of us. We must understand ourselves without being obsessing self into others shoe and just bring out what we love the most to act that can be the career to perform and bring endless earning. As working on such profile one will never get bore and keep on continuous learning to upgrade. This way one day surely be happy, satisfied and successful.
