Read and develop points for discussion for GD
All of us aspire to be successful in our lives – as students, we aim for good grades, and as professionals, we aim for promotions and career growth. We always think about enhancing our skills and growing in the personal and professional spheres.
But sometimes, we may come across situations where we are required to inspire others and that may put us in a dilemma because when we inspire others, we lose an opportunity to grow in our own fields. Instead, we give others a chance to grow.
There is nothing wrong with helping people but some individuals cannot bear to see their opportunities go to another individual and this is when problems arise. We ought to remember that we can’t have everything in life. We need to maintain a good work-life balance. Hence, there would be some things that we will have to give up in life.
As such, there is no harm in inspiring others. Instead of thinking about ourselves all the time, we should spare a thought for others. In fact, when you inspire others, you will grow as a person – you will develop teaching and coaching skills and you will be in the good books of others.
At home, there is rivalry among siblings – older siblings are often told to help their younger siblings with homework or projects. So, the older sibling, instead of spending that time reading up on his notes, would assist his siblings. Instead of thinking about profit and loss all the time, people should think about the benefits of such an act.
By helping your fellow siblings, you are strengthening the bond of your family and helping your family to grow. If we keep looking at profit and loss in every situation or relationship, we will never be happy and we will wind up alone.
In the workplace, colleagues may approach us for help or seek guidance. Here, you can spend time understanding the problems of your peers and providing invaluable suggestions. One thing that we ought to take note of is that when we inspire others, we are not moving away from our aspirations – in fact, by inspiring others, we will be able to reach our goals faster.
When you help your peers, you develop some skills and people will notice your dedication to work and your selfless attitude. This will send a positive signal to your bosses and help you in achieving your career goals.
So, it is unwise to say that you should choose between aspiration and inspiring others – both can go hand in hand. In fact, when you inspire others, others will help you in times of need and this will be helpful in your career and education. Likewise, when you achieve your goals, your near and dear ones will be inspired and they will strive to follow in your footsteps.
