“Do You Prove Yourself to be Right?” - Professor M.S.Rao

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou

Some people want to prove their point to be right while some people want to prove others’ point to be wrong. Some people want to act while some people want to react. Which kind of people are in the right side? The answer is obviously the people who want to act, and prove their point to be right. There is a slight variation between the both in terms of attitude and approach. People who want to prove their point to be right are the ones with a right attitude while the people who want to prove others’ point to be wrong are the ones with a wrong attitude.

Attitude is essential in every aspect of life to grow as a healthy and successful individual. Unfortunately, some people don’t realize it. For instance, when you attend an interview the recruiters emphasize on your attitude rather than the so called experience. When you work in an organization the employers expect you to equip with a right attitude to execute tasks effectively.  Herb Kelleher rightly remarked, “Attitude is very important and has to be weighed with experience and skills. Someone with a high IQ who is a backbiter is a disaster for your organization. Someone who is outgoing and altruistic and can work convivially will be a huge asset.” When you live with your spouse, s/he expects you to live and love with a right attitude. When you associate with others in social gatherings, people expect you to behave with a right attitude and etiquette. Hence, attitude is the ultimate element to gain acceptance and respect from others.

If you want to avoid conflicts in your life, it is essential to listen to others attentively and actively and respond with a positive attitude. If you want to enjoy your personal, professional and social life happily to provide meaning to your life, right attitude is essential. To conclude, if you try to prove others wrong, you have a negative attitude; if you try to prove you are right, you have a positive attitude. Hence, decide whether you want to prove yourself right or others as wrong. The ball is in your court.
