I have had it pointed out to me several times over the last year that the way that I think about things could maybe use a little work. I think that’s probably true for all of us. “Nobody is perfect” if you stop and think about it, you can probably think of some aspect of your life that needs work.
Whether it’s your attitude, your communication skills or the way you interact with others, we all need work. In my case, I usually don’t perceive that I could be better a person and In a particular area until someone points it out. I think we all have that person in our lives who can point out our flaws in a way that we can handle and not be offended.
In my case I tend to have issues not seeing the big picture. I struggle with the idea that it is not always about right now. Take this blog for example, I would love to get paid for doing this. It’s probably not going to happen but I would love it. More than likely doing this blog Will eventually lead me to something else in the future that could be my next step. I may never be paid for doing this but I might develop a skill that will be useful in my next job.
In this case I’m using making money on the blog as a way to illustrate other similar situations I’ve struggled with recently. It took a very special person in my life to point out that I wasn’t focused on the future as I should be. If anyone else had said that to me I probably wouldn’t have taken it well. Instead I have decided to change that aspect of myself for the better. It’s hard to admit that I don’t know everything and that I’m not always right when this happens. That said, every time I’ve listened and make the effort, it has paid off for me in the long run.
What would you change about yourself to become better?
