Physical Accidents vs. Emotional Accidents

Emotional Vs Physical accidents!
A limp, a fractured arm, a band-aid here and a bruise there – typical indicators of an accident. We all have met with such accidents (of varying degrees!) at one point or another in our life.
Pausing to think, are physical accidents the only ones? What about the sinking feeling in our hearts, what about the feeling where the whole world seems to be coming crashing down while you stand? They certainly make the case for what I would term as Emotional Accidents.
Points of comparison between Physical and Emotional Accidents:
1. No visible scars in Emotional Accidents – a swollen eye and a drooping body language may be the only tell tale signs
2. While physical accidents may involve strangers or unfamiliar places, the emotional accidents are predominantly from the known individuals – death of a beloved person, departure of a loved one, the back-stabbing from a trusted one. All these cut deeper.
3. Some physical accidents heal quickly while others take time and may leave no traces. Some may even have an impact for life like a permanent limp or a scar. Emotional accidents keep churning you from inside based on their severity. You may be distracted momentarily, but when the right time strikes, prepare to be deluged by thoughts if you are weak, leading to additional cycles if depression and self-doubt.
4. You may not even realise when an emotional accident happens. For example, you may have your dreams and ideas shot down as people around you are not able to identify with them. The effects unfold in the form of low self-esteem, reduced confidence and self-doubt.
The best part of emotional accidents is that you can identify them, and the moment you start realising that you are in such a situation, you can consciously control it and greatly dampen the effect.
You must have heard old people saying that fever is good because it will improve your immunity. Similarly, every emotional accident will contribute towards your EQ.

Connect & Share!

Today, whenever we want to know about something, all we do is take our device (mobile, desktop, laptop..) and open google. We enter our search term and voila! we obtain the information we seek from so many sources!

All this happens in a matter of seconds! We learn from unknown individuals who have shared their knowledge for the world to learn!

So, how did the internet come to being? In the 1950, when the electronic computers started getting into the picture, individuals started creating more and more information on their system. But, they could not share the knowledge! Then they started connecting the systems – one computer at a time to create a network of computers that could freely exchange information. Houses, districts, cities, countries and finally continents – today you have the complete world connected!

 

In today’s knowledge based economy, information is the currency – by helping others learn, we learn along with them as well. From the simplest of words to mathematics and general knowledge, by sharing we all learn more!

Every one of us has the ability to teach. Each one of us has the ability to make an individual understand the concepts and information that we know.

Each one of us is a teacher as well as student all through our lives.

Everyday, we learn something new. Sometimes it is on relationships, sometimes on manners, sometimes on communication, sometimes about the world, sometimes about technology and so on. The moment you start teaching or explaining the concepts to someone else, you will see that you are getting much stronger in that concept and you acquire a deeper level of knowledge.

It is said that – “If you can simplify the concept so that your 90 years old grandma can understand it, then you have truly mastered it!”

So, don’t be afraid – teach the world what best you know and receive with open arms, all that the world has to teach you!

Self Belief – The Utmost Vital Step

‘Self belief’ is the utmost vital step.
If you don’t believe in yourself, how do you expect anyone else to believe in you?
If you want to achieve greatness, you first have to believe that you are capable of it. Know that there is no one else, but you, who can attain what you want to do.
As ‘God helps those, who help themselves’, so keep an optimistic approach towards life, try to find positivity in each & every situation and you will come out as a Winner!  🙂
