Discussion On Personality Development And Co Operation
DISCUSSION ON PERSONALITY
DEVELOPMENT AND CO-OPERATION
DISCUSSED BY:- SAHIL GOEL
Personality Development, according to me, is a way to
gradually change a person lacking in many qualities to a person with qualities such
as vision, co-operation, confidence, motivation etc.
“Vision is seen as a power to see the invisibles”
Today is the era of real competitive market may it be any field
related to people. Our subject raises a very crucial point regarding our society and
its working which demands urgent attention, as well as concern of various related
Presently, we can see that our school experience teaches us to be
co-operative in our daily lives. But our society is moving towards individualistic
and competitive grounds very rapidly. If we analyze the view from teacher’s
perspective, they are doing the right thing. Co-operation and Collaborative
working are the qualities which should be inculcated in every person right
from the roots.
The simple group assignments and projects at school level and
high-school level are not only given for the academic excellence but it somehow,
without our knowledge, teaches us to motivate others for higher participation,
helps in deciding some shared goals, develops our social skills, gives us a chance
to understand others’ point of view, respecting that view points, and the most
importantly, takes everyone along towards the successive completion of the task
I believe co-operation is the most required ingredient of
personality development. I also see society is highly competitive but first we need
to understand what this society is comprised of. Every event which occurs in the
companies, or the society, it is not possible for a single person to complete it on
its own. He or She has to ultimately convince others or the event fails.
When we talk about competition in the companies, then they are
not acting individualistic. Its progress reports, profits margins, increased
market share are in fact the result of the team efforts comprising many
corporate brains working behind the scene. Be it any arm of society whether
Real Estate, Corporate World, Sports, Government, etc, there is no place for
individuals with selfish interests and ill-feeling for others.
If selfish motives exist, those cannot be sustained for a long time. Even the
mischief gangs work in co-operation.
“Co-Operation is the ultimate feeling which gives internal happiness”
Today, when the world is suffocating under the impure air of
Global Warming, Poverty, Corruption, Carbon Emission, Terrorism, only the
holistic approach towards the various issues could provide some gains. These
problems can only be tackled with mutual understanding, co-operation, and a
common agenda of saving the world. It again requires mentally developed
personalities who could sense the emergency of situation.
“Destructive Criticism and Undue Competition Leads Only To Disasters”
Unwanted competition leads to obstructed communication,
negative attitudes, disagreement over common issues, coercive tactics,
and damaged relationships. On the other hand, cooperative approaches are
often characterized by effective communication, friendliness,
helpfulness, co-ordination, feelings of agreement, goodwill, and
recognition of the others’ interests.
The age level of 15 to 22 are the important years
which shape one’s personality and moreover, students and persons in this
age level have their brains working at optimum efficiency. There is energy,
zeal and enthusiasm to do something. If students in this particular age level
could be groomed well than that will be a great asset for any nation. They
need to have a broad outlook and they should be fully aware of the things
happening around them.
This is the age level in which most of the innocent minds get
involved in mischievous activities or they develop really bad habits like
drug addiction, alcohol addiction, and smoking. Some people face
tensions, irritability, frustration, depression, anger due to some internal
conflicts of heart and mind. They need a proper guidance from
professional trainers who could really turn these base metals into noble
So we need to undertake a 360 degree personality
development approach which will lead all of us to a better, safer, and a
