I began thinking of my journey, I realized that I learned a lot from my past experiences. I was talking to my younger self who was impulsive and impatient in nature. I loved my younger self but the things I have learned made me a calm and thoughtful person. I looked through the looking glass of my past and remembered the younger 18-year-old me talking to the 23-year-old discussing the things I learned. I believe that when we become older, we have more experiences to pass along to people
This all started when I was an employee of Indigo Airlines. One day there was bad weather in Mumbai, so an aircraft diverted to Ahmedabad airport. And because of the bad weather, the aircraft was delayed for more than two hours, which caused all of the passengers to get frustrated and angry. At that time, a member of my team approached me and said, “Sir, passengers are getting irritated.” When I arrived at the aircraft, I noticed that passengers were standing in the lobby and shouting at us at the moment. One of the passengers then approached me and started shouting at me and threatening my team. I was in charge of that shift. I handled that situation calmly and requested him to cool down his anger. That was when I realized how crucial it is to have patience in life since it affects our personalities and the way we approach challenges, dealing with customers who come with issues and assisting them in a calm and understanding manner. Being impatient was easier but tackling problems and giving them solutions was something of a task. I have to answer my boss and treat my customers well too. So, the chances of messing up should be very minimal to survive in a corporate world. That attitude of dealing with people helped me and worked pretty well for me. So, I gradually developed the habit of paying attention to other people and started observing, watching, and resolving their problems and that helped me give a fresh and better perspective.
Now, I try to make others realize the talents they have within themselves. That’s where the magic lives. Staying calm in any situation helps us to see this with a very broad horizon and different perspectives. The patient mind will give us more opportunities to deal with the rather that the impatient mind. Losing control over things is easier rather than solving them. So, for personal growth, I always go with the choices that are tough and different to approach. And I think we all should aim & work on something like that.
I know this takes time and practice as well, but you have to make a decent choice and deal with whatever comes.
Start this with a small task in your life like waiting for a traffic signal without cribbing about the traffic. And I hope these small steps help you for a calm and patient mind.
