Everyone loves to be in good books with all their contacts. However, this hardly happens as people find themselves caught up in unpleasant habits acquired through life. A lot of things contribute to one’s overall behavior. There is still hope as positive practice helps people clean up.
What is positive practice?
It is also known as overcorrection. It is a case where one is made to repeat what he or she did wrong by repeatedly doing what a normal person does under the same circumstances. The founder of Practice U – Troy Smith gave us some tips on how positive practice will make you clean.
Makes one more cautious
Peoples’ behavior has a lot to do with upbringing among other factors. Habits are formed over a long time; it is likely that one’s annoying traits may be oblivious to them. Positive practice will be a game changer in such a situation as it calls one to soberness. Offenders often regret their deeds once all the dust is settled and everything returns to normal.
Positive practice allows one to see things from a calmer point and understand them better.
Creates more and healthier social networks
Healthy and strong social relationships are crucial to life. Maintaining such is an enormous task though. People like interacting with those who have their act together. Simply put, positive practice will earn you more friends and make you a pleasant person to be around.
Imagine someone who always pushes the door with force and bangs it when entering the room. Once they learn to knock lightly and get in, they make the lives of the other occupants better.
Many studies have found a strong relationship between peace of mind and productivity. When at peace with self, more tasks can be complete with less effort, time and better. Doing the right thing, or at least trying to, gives peace of mind and eradicates the baggage of guilt. In this state, performance is at its peak.
With every new skill, a positive habit acquired, or a negative one dropped, there is some level of growth in the seemingly smallest development. Imagine a child who throws the cup on the floor after every feed. They finally master the art of placing the cup in the sink after some overcorrection sessions. This is a win as they know what to do with an empty cup hence personal growth. One also gets to practice and perfect an act and become a better person in general.
If the struggle at hand is temper-related for example, positive practice allows one to think about things in the subsequent incidents. In overall, the approach allows one to put in some thoughts before the next move. The next time, they are more likely to do it with normalcy as opposed to when angry. As a life rule, one needs to think before leaping. Unfortunately, not all people do. Positive practice helps bring in calculate the thought process.
It feels great to have another chance to do it right. And positive practice does that perfectly. After doing something wrong, everyone appreciates the opportunity to make it right. Positive practice gives everyone yet another chance to do something well and give it the best shot.
While the positive practice is effective, it may not work in all circumstances the same way. A case of a child breaking a glass intentionally cannot be corrected by having them breaking more. In that case, a different approach is recommended. The person involved also needs to agree and fully participate for it to work.
