Yesterday my cousin named Rajat arrived at my office. I was delighted by his presence but when I invited him at home to meet with the other members of the family he refused immediately. I was surprised by his weird behaviour but when I asked him the reason for this he replied, “Brother I have especially came here at your office from a specific reason and unfortunately not feeling comfortable enough to meet with the other members of the family at this particular moment”. He further added, but I promise you to visit at your home soon. I appreciated Rajat’s decision and asked him his purpose of visit.
After listening this Rajat said, “Brother as you know we have a family business but I always wanted to do something different and want to build my own identity but alas! Due to my carefree attitude, overconfidence and lack of proper guidance till yet I am not successful in accomplishing my goal and now I think that my biggest mistake was to not joining the family business”. He further added, “Brother can you talk with my father to give me a chance to join the family business”.
I replied, “Rajat I can easily have a word with your father regarding this matter and I am quite sure that he will definitely take you in his family business”. But if I were you I would never had done this. I further elaborated Rajat, “The biggest plus point in your case is that you knew the reasons for your failure i.e. Carefree attitude, overconfidence and lack of proper guidance”. If you work on these self – imposed limitations you would easily reach your goals in much faster and smarter way.
I motivated Rajat to don’t hold his past and move ahead with sincerity, confidence and proper knowledge about the work that he want to pursue in order to build his own identity. After listening this Rajat thanked me for giving him the precious guidance and promised self to build his own identity. And further added lets go brother at your home to meet the family.
