Be Your Own Change Master

Words: Dr Rajgopal NIDAMBOOR

Change is a constant. It is a given. It is also the essence of life, not just an allegory. The more adaptive we are to change, the better our motivating quotient. Change also helps us to comprehend, hone and ‘[re]engineer’ our abilities, with better effect and for optimal results. Change is as exciting as learning, or acquiring a new skill with aplomb and dexterity — it embodies the portent to feeling good and great in every sense of the word, right from the core of our mind, body and spirit.

If practice makes us perfect, honing our skills and scaling up to the next level provides us with additional advantage. It also helps us to turn on the knob of success and fulfilment with renewed zest — or, wait for the tide to turn in our favour. While it is a possibility for monotony to ensue with far too much of a good thing, one should always aim to have their feet on the ground. If we don’t, things can overpower our sense of balance with actuality and lead to loss of touch with reality.

We all aim to better our prospects from the ground up, at every step and at every level. This is what that ‘pumps’ motivation into everything, or anything we do and also feel contented for achieving a fulfilling outcome. However, one must always remember that one should endeavour to do things in one’s own, natural manner, not on someone’s ‘penchant.’ The latter is often counterproductive. The best thing to do is to bring balance to our work and life and expand on one’s optimal growth and happiness.

We are all prone to follow and extol certain pointers for success in life. We also think of innovative ideas, or having a positive vision to thrive and reach the winning post. We often draw inspiration from people who we admire for their originality, foresight and dynamism. The point also is we all have it in us to achieve what we want, or wish to, provided we earnestly attempt to ‘connect’ with that vision. It is such positive outlook that propels us to take advantage of what we have, not what we don’t possess. It bids fair to firming up our benchmark — our winning tool to success and fulfilment.

One thing is, however, imminent. We need to ‘up’ our ante, or focused attributes, and translate them to a nourishing experience, just like people who are successful. When we practice and inculcate such inspirational textures to our soul, we’d be able to enhance our recognition of the cosmic foundation that is part of our life, living and also existence. It celebrates the harmonious relationship that exists between our intellectual and spatial abilities, including our cosmic processes. The only caveat is we need to surmount our limitations — this could be achieved by relating to the essence of ‘what-we-can-be’ with objectivity, not with our bias for subjectivity. This provides us with the larger picture of ourselves and the world. It helps us to also raise the bar and not throw in the towel, as it were.

The more we expand on our faculties and wisdom, the better we will all be. This is what that fortifies our confidence. It motivates us to embark on the path of awareness, while relating to the ‘deepest roots’ of our being. You’d call it distinctiveness — a higher level of consciousness, or elevated conscious-awareness, or mindful responsiveness. It expands our fervour to doing well in life — because, each of us, whatever our abilities, are blessed to achieve what we want to, provided we embrace change at every step.
