leave impressions behind no matter where you find yourself
People who make waves will always be remembered and the greater the waves, the greater the level of remembrance. Human beings always remember impressions created by those they come across whether negative or positive; the negative more than the positive one. There are two ways to live one’s life. One is to exist and just be part of the number. If there are ten people staying together, majority of them will only be just among the ten. It is only a tiny minority who will have a purpose of being different and creating the conditions that will make them to be different. This tiny minority will always struggle to make impressions and create actions. They are living rather than existing in the world. They are not only satisfied to exist; they lived and tried to be different. They struggle to do something outstanding and long lasting though to them such outstanding things are simple actions. The fact, however, is that they get consumed with their visions and actions. They resolve to do something and they do not look back until they reach their goal, which is living not existing.
Impressions that are created can either be negative or positive. No matter what type it is, one thing is clear and that is the fact that most achievers take decisions on what they want to be. They did not leave personal decisions to groups, peers, association, religious organisations or the society. They take their decision by themselves and believing themselves. They become response-able i.e. responsible for what they do. This helps them to leave impression. The water that flows without following a particular breeze do not create waves.
Developing a good self-concept involves being able to create impressions that are positive. In all the things that you do, no matter how small or big, give it total attention so that you create an impression. This develops your self-concept to the point that people will not only recognise you but also respect you and want to have relationship with you. Creating impressions means making people become aware of you, letting them know that you are there and making them miss you while not being there. This can be done by being notorious or through positive actions. The actions that give you good impression and good self-concept are good actions. Just as people remember your bad deeds, in most cases it is the good deeds that stay within their beings and leave a long lasting impression. While they may try to shut out the bad things you have done, anytime there is the opportunity to remember good deeds they will always wish you well. This physically affects your self-concept. If people talk and think bad about you, it is only a matter of time before you end up in a bad way.
One main gain when you are able to leave impressions behind no matter where you find yourself is that after some time your inner power and self develop. People try to associate with you no matter what. In the case of negative impressions it may be to understand you, your motivation or bring you down. They may also come close in order to derive something from your notoriety. In the case of positive impressions they share in the honour and recognition that you are deemed to get as a result of the impressions you are creating. All these will help your self-concept to grow either positively or negatively depending on the impressions, which you leave behind.
