The Image DRAMA

A good Image is what all of us want today, that is why we invest so much on clothing, personality development and all other grooming options available to us. Anything at all which makes us look different from the crowd. All these activities are done to make a superior or a unique image of one in front of others.

Why do we make an image about someone in our mind??? Why is it worth?? The reason is because we are in constant searching mode for someone who can be our friend who can be a good company in an outing one and most importantly one who can be trusted. So the image is a report card. Thus maintaining a good report card is important. There are 2 ways by which you can present your image among your peers. One can choose to project something about himself or he can be himself and let others project what he is.

The projected image is formed when one according to the environment showcase certain qualities which he may not possess, this helps him to be the star of the group and thus people start expecting the same skills from him more often. The problem here is that if you fake, it might be suicidal. Because your peers have already made a good image about you in their mind, they trust you and they desperately want you to live up to their expectation. But if you don’t the entire trust and affection which you got will be lost PERMANENTLY. Because what you did by faking your action is that you triggered an interest in the minds of people who are not like you and might not get along good with you, but as you stimulated it with your actions they are attracted and would want you to reciprocate. And responding to their expectations every time is not possible for you because you are not the same person as you showcased. But ironically speaking if you can fake and be a good at it, you sure can gain a lot of momentum.

On the other hand being yourself and not doing anything just to impress others is when people take time to formulate an image about you. This is a long term process but for sure it is a permanent thing. When you try to be yourself and your activities are not an outcome for influencing someone then your start respecting your individuality and appreciate yourself and most importantly you respect everyone around you and would not like to plague it with people who do not respect you and themselves.

 When you try not to impress everyone, you impress the right one.

P.S. there is no moral or learning in this one, but for sure, I would want people to pay some extra attention on image they showcase.

While studying in school our syllabus use to change regularly, there was always a constant need to change and add certain activities in the school curriculum, Because change is constant in the outside world and it demands us to change with it. Similarly in the corporate lifestyle one needs to adapt and respect the environment, upgrade with it, as well as maintain the skill set which he currently posses.

Why would we change our wardrobe with new fashion? Simple, because we want to be updated with our friends and social circle and Fashion trends is one thing which makes you look cool among them. Similarly, how equip are you with the work environment and new technologies in the market makes you cool among employers and increase your chances in corporate world.

Upgrading becomes all the more important because most of our work is related to technology, which changes very fast. Even the developers of technology compete between themselves to upgrade to new and better methods before their competitors. From businesses to education hubs we can see change is only constant and permanent thing around us. Most of us just want a new opportunity or a new challenge in work but we forget to do our homework and upgrade our self to take on that opportunity. Taking lessons from the environment we as employees, are we upgrading with the work environment, or are we letting our current work make us a passive worker, which will someday make us loose our employ ability? 

In my opinion one should take knowledge from where ever it comes, if free, should pound on it and grasp as much as possible. Because a few years down the line, Information and knowledge would be the best business and one would pay a fortune to get it.

This is how you  kiss success, So ARE YOU UPGRADED?

Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes-.Peter F. Drucker
