Have you ever wondered if tackling matters of life were as easy as working on computer? Just press the Undo button and we can get rid of the wrong actions taken and start afresh.
Alas, that can’t be! In life, we have to be careful with anything and everything we do, say and sometimes even think.
For those who have used the typewriter will know that while typing a sheet, even if you realized your mistake just after punching, the only option was to reverse and add crosses on top of the error or use whitener and then type on top of it. In either case, you know that the mark will be clearly visible on your sheet. Can you relate?
In real life, we have this magic word “Sorry”. This word has actually become an integral part of our lives, isn’t it?. You know what Sorry literally means – feeling regret or penitence.
The quote below has captured the thought so aptly:
“Sorry does not make a dead man alive!”
Please remember that saying sorry may give you an opportunity to regret your actions and apologize but it does not have the ability to undo the damage completely. Coming back to the example of typed sheet, every mistake leaves an impression behind and mostly sore one’s! Does it make sense?
For every unpleasant incident, the emotional stress and agony the receiving person goes through definitely leaves negative impact on their mind and heart. It not only affects the quality of your relationship with that person but also gathers a lot of negativity for you as the doer.
Your professional position or social stature may fetch you external respect from people. But if we are longing for their love and real respect then there is a need to introspect our every action and ensure that we eliminate our behavioral mistakes before we commit them. It will help us reduce negativity and will also help in generating positive energy around us.
To bring to practice, analyze your day before you sleep to mentally review the instances from the day gone by. Think of all that you would like to Undo from that day and do it differently. A notebook or your smartphone will come handy for reference.
Believe me awareness is the key!
Once we get aware about our unwanted actions and the frequency at which we still continue to do them. Gradually we will be able to turn towards more and more positive outcomes! You will experience incredible satisfaction by taking these little steps to a fuller and meaningful life!
