“Don’t only fight for being right; make sure you are giving your best. You’ll certainly score better.” My dad said.
I am narrating one incident from childhood that I still remember and try to follow in life.
I scored one mark less than expected in the examination, and somehow I thought that I was right. I must get that mark and ask the teacher to give it to me for my work. So, I told my dad that I’d fight for Mark. Then my dad said this to me.
He went on to say that every time I fight to be correct, I lose chances of my improvement, and it affects me coming out with the best.
Today when I remember this incident, I feel he is so right.
When we fight that we are right, we try to prove it by protecting our mighty ego. We feel we can’t be wrong; we must be right only. With this attitude, we go on fighting.
Now, we could be right, or we could be wrong. But what is the drawback of proving right is, we start wasting our energy on proving. Here, we shift our focus from bringing out the best from our efforts to being right always.
This isn’t correct.
It happens with most of us because we always do the things keeping something in our minds, such as beliefs, information, etc. We think we are always right as we have considered all the things.
We take a stand that if not right, I’ll be wrong, and I can’t be wrong.
But the most important thing is to understand that we may be wrong, and there might be chances that we need improvement. Unless we accept that we’re wrong, we can not improve.
Improvement helps us bring the best out of us.
Proving ourselves right is necessary, but we shouldn’t bring the wrong side of it. There is nothing right or wrong, and it is about how we perceive things. Sometimes right for you may be wrong for others. Vice versa could also be true.
It is necessary to understand that if we give up on trying and proving right, we can focus on being better. We can come out with the best outcomes.
We must not care if we get appreciated or not, honored or not, get credit for being right or not. But we must care most about working for the better.
So, let’s not get affected for proving ourselves right and work for better things in life. Our attitude will help society to strive well.
