Today, I will write about an incident that brought a major change in the person I know the best. After he graduated from Computers degree, he planned to prepare for MBA entrance exam. He joined an institute proving classes. A guy who was a shy personality and used to think 100 times before speaking to anyone. Somehow, he made study mates who were aware of his personality type. One day, one of them started bullying him about his shy attitude and locked him inside the toilet just for fun. The guy felt really bad and thought that they don’t have any right to do that. Then, he started digging down what made them do such a miserable thing. After 15 minutes, he got to know the reason and that was Himself. He vowed to himself that HE WILL NEVER LET THAT HAPPEN AGAIN IN HIS LIFE.
He started to write down the points to improve the first thing after he got out. It was a great learning experience for him. Rather than getting shattered by the situation, he made this incident his turning point in life and thought the most positively that he could. He shared the incident with one of his best friend who motivated him more to be positive and said that it will not matter to you after you are done with your course. He, then tends to behave altogether differently when he went to the next class as he had a different and new perspective of life. He understood that some people will try to push you down and put you in an uncomfortable situation, but you will have to act like a crazy ball at that time and make yourself way above than such situation and select a higher goal in your life. All this change process happened in just ONE Day. Just One Day.
Three key learnings he got from this incident were the following:
- Think positive
- Set higher goals
- Take a big picture approach
Today, he feels comfortable talking to new people and it has become his passion to know about people and learn from new people he meets.
Wanna know who that guy is: Yes, it’s ME.
