Delete the negative; accentuate the positive

Few of B schools and even new IIMs have replaced GD with WAT hence, Written Ability Test has also become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication skills and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process.
 
Develop points for discussion and read WAT topic:  
Delete the negative; accentuate the positive!
 
Donna Karan, a renowned American fashion designer and the creator of Donna Karan New York (DKNY), once said, “Delete the negative; accentuate the positive!” 
 
Although Donna Karan is a fashion designer, her statement is not just applicable to the world of fashion; in fact, this statement is applicable to all aspects of our lives. 
 
As human beings, we tend to focus too much on the past and the negative things in life and as such, we miss out on the positive things around us. In self improvement courses, trainers stress the importance of positive thinking and focus on changing self-criticism and negative thoughts to more realistic and positive thoughts. This is exactly what Donna Karan’s statement aims at doing. 
 
We should understand that no one is perfect – we all have negative and positive qualities; however, we should try to either delete or reduce the negative qualities and bring out our positive qualities. During job interviews, everyone tries their best to accentuate the positive qualities; no one focuses on the negatives. This is exactly how we should lead our lives too. Instead of getting bogged down by imperfections and negative qualities, we should enhance our strengths and work towards reducing our weaknesses. 
 
Roald Dahl, a British novelist, was right when he said, “If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely”. By having positive thoughts and a positive focus in life, you will be able to achieve your goals and realize your full potential.
 
All of us are different – some have huge thighs, some have skinny legs, some have short legs and others have long legs, which is why a fashion designer creates clothes that hides an individual’s physical features that are less desirable and accentuates the positives. That’s what we should do in life too – we should get rid of the negatives and focus on the positives.
