Every man is battling a war in this world. There are very few who have attained such state of peace and tranquility that nothing is in life to trouble them. Even then these people must have reached here only by winning the struggle that is the lot of every man. Everyone is a hero. Even those people who have no heroism left are battling to just survive in this world and that is also a very fierce war that he is fighting although he has less chance of winning it.
One of the keys to become better at people skills is to understand this particular thing about the war that is there in the life of everyone. If we are aware of not just our troubles but are also understanding of the demons in other person’s life, we can be sure that other person will recognize it in us and will be very cordial towards us.
Dale Carnegie in his wonderful book – “How to win friends and influence people” have urged and exhorted people to look at issues from their angle and other person’s angle. Also he tells us to be less critical of others’ mistakes.
A farmer working hard in the fields for his family is also a hero in his own right. A software engineer grappling with latest technologies is also a hero. Life is indeed difficult when we don’t understand it but after fighting when we gain experience, suddenly life’s pieces start falling into their places.
The key is to start where you are now and do whatever you can do to reach your goals. Everything can be done if you just believe in your powers. All power is within you, you can do anything and everything. Thus said great Swami Vivekananda.
