Strength is a very dicey term to use. If you are among the many who consider themselves devoid of any strength or talent, you are surely mistaken. In fact, all of us are packaged with a series of strengths, half of which we are unaware of! It is time to unwrap those gifts and let the world shine in your beauty.
“A brave man acknowledges the strength of others”– a quote by Veronica Roth that speaks volumes about appreciation of talent in others. It is nothing less than brave of a person who can applaud for another.
The victory of a fellow human being should be something to celebrate and not envy. It is more than beautiful to gracefully accept the power of another person even if his or her talent is overshadowing yours.
Here are a few tips on how to celebrate the strength in others:
1. Cheer for Someone who is Winning:
It is a wonderful talent when you can grace a situation by cheering for a person who is on his quest of touching the sky. Know that these people will remember who joined in celebration of their victory and will eventually turn up for your glory day!
2. Learn from the Best and Emerge a Winner:
The strength in your friend is always a good place to start. Observe the goodness and talents in others and make a conscious effort to reach somewhere close. It not only ups your happiness quotient but also makes you satisfied at your own progress.
3. Gauge Your Own Strengths and Fill Yourself with Good Thoughts:
It is of immense importance to know where you are at life. Now this can be both in terms of emotional and materialistic well-being. Awareness of how far you have come and how well you are doing is the best approach to keep you tied to your goal.
Once you are there, all you need to do is create happy thoughts about yourself! Smile for you have come this far, laugh for you have not yet arrived, enjoy the journey like it is all that matters and let go of all negative and waste thoughts that could bring you down.
4. Know that Nothing is Impossible:
Have you ever seen two wrestlers before a match? They bow down and sometimes do a polite Namaste towards each other. This greeting sets a healthy mood for the match to follow. They may also shake hands, from this action they can figure out the energy level of the opponent. Like that, it is always good to know that opportunity is unlimited. If your opponent can go so far, so can you.
5. Be Content about Your Abilities:
Do not be upset if you are not as good at something as someone else. It is the law of this universe that there will always be someone better than you at what you do. That doesn’t make your existence worthless. You are special and you are loved!
6. Practice, Practice and Practice:
This is the ultimate mantra for strengthening your good qualities and lessening the impact of the bad ones in your life. Let go of the chatter in your mind that feeds you garbage about competition and rivalry.
The world is huge and there is enough scope for everyone to succeed. So, celebrate each other’s strength because that’s what really makes you a brave man or woman!
Do not let anyone talk you out of what you can achieve through your strengths. It is just like a muscle that needs to be trained day in and day out. Once it seeps in all of the practice and hard work, you are good to fly! Let the world see the beauty of being strong and encouraging other people’s strengths!
