What is the key factor in your personal change? Today, the market is flooded with self-help books and training programmes but we know the extent of their impact on personal change. One of the prime reasons is, most of them prescribe the same solution for all people irrespective of their age, profession, occupation, location, contexts, internal structures, resources or needs.
If the personal change was so easy to happen, every one of us would have achieved it by now. The difference that makes the difference in the whole process is your own uniqueness. The product or services which pay attention to your uniqueness helps you in the real sense to make the most desired adjustment in you which leads to very high positive consequence for your life.
Dr. Milton H. Erickson, M.D, achieved wonderful and magical results in his life time using this approach. He emphasizes on the uniqueness of individuals,
“Every person’s map of the world is as unique as their thumbprint. There are no two people alike. No two people who understand the same sentence the same way…so in dealing with people you try not to fit them to your concept of what they should be.”
Thus, the most useful and effective personal change intervention is the one which designs and implement customized packages for individuals leveraging their uniqueness.
Appreciating individuals as they are and helping them to make internal changes accordingly is a wonderful experience and approach. Carl Rogers states,
“One of the most satisfying experiences I know is fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset…. I don’t find myself saying, ‘ Soften the orange a little more on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud color..’ I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds.”
God created us as a unique person and in respecting uniqueness and properly utilizing lies the key to effective personal change
