Be a Child At Heart, Filled With Self-Confidence
Published On: March 19, 2019
Innocence of a child is wonderful
That’s what make them lovely and adorable
Let’s find magic in tiny little things
Let’s continue to dream big, soar high and open our wings…
As a child, we see wonders happening around us in every small things- be it tiny droplets of rain coming together to make that big puddle, be it those disciplined ants who work hard while the sun shines. And of course, that small little princess finds her happiness in the magic that air can create by blowing her little dress like a balloon while she is enjoying her turn around.
Growing up to be a responsible human beings is a beautiful journey called LIFE.
In today’s hi-tech life, everything seems to be moving very fast and so are we – to keep up with its pace. But, if we try to take a pause for a while and introspect, most of us will find that there are some things in us that haven’t changed, that we don’t want to change because they are meant to be there… for GOOD. That’s our inner urge like a child to always keep learning, keep exploring and keep igniting our minds with magical ideas to create wonders in our personal and professional lives.
Let’s look at some of those simple and innocent qualities of children which if combined with the mind of adults will definitely help us feel truly alive and to blossom every day.
- BE ENTHUSIASTIC
“Enthusiasm is the root of wonderful creations”
Without zeal, no mountain can be climbed nor can our goals be achieved. Always keep up your spirits, be it to start a new venture, to do something different altogether or to do a routine job in a different way. It’s our enthusiasm that can help us discover different ways to do the same daily chores and make it more interesting.
2. BE A LEARNER
Kids are quick learners. The other day, I was watching kids playing in an open area of my apartment. One child introduced a new game which she might have played at school. Within no time other kids picked up the new game and they all evolved as a team playing together. That’s how kids are!!! Always ready to learn. We must try and imbibe this beautiful quality. It will help us be a part of a group wherein we can always learn more and more from each other.
3. BE FEARLESS
Children speak and act what’s in their heart. They are not afraid of anything or anyone. Sometimes, we adults tend to think more than actually required and imprison ourselves in the barriers of what others say or think about us. Mind you, it’s none of our business to think what others think about us. So, let’s step out of our comfort zone and speak our heart out.
4. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Many of us would have seen kids aged between two and three trying to do big chores by themselves. That’s what I am seeing in my daughter these days. These little kids are such a tiny lot of strong, optimistic and self-confident believers of themselves. They have a very high self-esteem. Let’s be positive about ourselves just like these kids, believe in ourselves and that would be a good beginning. After all, “Well begun is half done”.
So, let’s be childlike at our heart, see immense possibilities of doing the same things in different ways not to impress anyone but to embrace the happiness of that moment derived out of making an attempt to fulfill our deep desires.
Believe me ladies…it boosts up our self-confidence and places us a step ahead in the ladder of success. Wish you all find wonderful ways to create magic in every walk of life.
