So they said that lifelong education is the best antidote to cognitive impairment and cell decay, life satisfaction and productivity and so on. On the average most of us would associate education with gaining knowledge, bare facts, learning languages, expanding horizons by exploring and reading, which is all fine. Some people would venture to say that taking up a new hobby or cultivating some healthy habits are also crucial and constitute part of the overall support for the body and the mind alike. Personal development has been the last to pick up in some places, which involves all of the other aspects, but most importantly it is about developing your personality, strengthening the weaker aspects, reading up more on those areas in life which normally could lie around barren with no fruit yielded.
Make an Effort
As we progress in life to juggle simultanously several roles and tasks the need for an engaging personality, lively attitude, keen mind and a healthy body they all need to be developed to a certain degree. As team leaders or employees that are finding it hard to express their dissent or voice an opinion that is so much different from what the others claim to be their own and the only truth, it is obvious that learning effective skills of persuasion and assertiveness could go a long way in helping us to deal with difficulties in the work department. That is just some superficial level groundwork, though what obviously matters is its application to real life scenarios, where true emotions ring and logical thinking is switched off at times. With an ego battle as its center skills only do not have to be the only effective way. That is clearly not enough for anyone to claim the leadership role or just be flexible minded to deal with tasks that are showered on us from every side. Human brain is uniquely endowed with the ability to rewire itself and learn or unlearn although, as we know, some things cannot be altered despite our greatest efforts. However when you look at feats that average people are capable of under extreme duress, even lifting an extremely heavy object, but you can have more with some patience that so many people are lacking in. Developing certain qualities of character is what takes character, but what often can be heard it is best developed when you are with people and not away from them. Practising other skills is also something you need other people for instead of just doing so in the absence of anyone, even if that anyone is someone who is unfriendly or even hostile towards you. One best friend should also be enough to tell you what things you need to work on to benefit the most. When others insist on showing them respect you would learn that respect is what is hard earned and not compelled or shown for the very post you find yourself at. You learn a host of things that other people have long abandoned or are totally unaware of.
