Conflict – Should we Cherish ??

Hi…. It’s a lovely morning in Delhi, after yesterday’s wind and rain. I was just going through a chapter of the Great Robin Sharma. This is titled as CHERISH CONFLICT, page – 48, chapter – 24 of The Greatness Guide 2.

Every body do not cherish conflict, in fact most of us run away from this. Somehow,  I share a common opinion with Robin. “ Conflict is nothing more than an opportunity for greater growth and a deeper personal connection”. This reminds me of some major conflicts – I had some conflicts with some of my friends, I was thrown out from the class by my Teacher in the college, I had few arguments with my ex – boss, I had a series of complains against the first bill of one of my credit cards.

Today, those friends are my best friends, The Teacher, who throw me out of the class is my Best Teacher for the Life time. My ex boss is my favorite and we have become very friendly with each other, often discuss various professional as well as personal issues and the same credit card, that I was thinking to cancel their services, accounts for my maximum billing.

So, the line of Robin Sharma is actually 110% valid for me –
Every conflict, whether with a loved one or a customer, is a gorgeous opportunity to forge an even closer bond with them. By turning their dissatisfaction into a WOW for both the parties. This is an opportunity to be yourself and not just to nod in agreement.

And finally, I must say, we should try and avoid this but if it happens, we should embrace it as a GIFT. We need to understand the potential it carries. And celebrate it…. It can serve us so well.

This is my take on the CONFLICT, what you think about this?
