Unearthing My Most Precious Treasure
I have always felt that I could not be happy more than I am at present. Why? I have got the most precious treasure of my life. It is something for what I would have vouched anything. What is it? It is my family and the family values I have inculcated from them. When I was young, my parents seemed to have just one thing to do and that was interfering in whatever I did. But as I became mature and gained my senses, I knew that was not interference but giving me the most precious treasure of my life. These were the family values I learnt and could pass on when I have my own family.
Over the years, I realized that there are 3 most precious stones that I have in my treasure box, something that I have learnt from my parents. And, as I have unearthed them, I am sharing them here.
This is I have always seen my parents do. Whenever an elderly person used to visit our house, my parents would bow down in respect and see to it that they are not uncomfortable in our home. And, the same thing I was taught. Never disrespect your elders and respect them with all your heart. Not just this, my parents used to take our preferences and opinions into account when taking a decision that would affect the whole family. This also taught us to respect a person and his decisions also.
Children have a very curious nature, which tends them to ask questions that might not be appropriate for their age. My parents satisfied our curiosity and never overlooked it. Why? It was because unsatisfied or unanswered curiosity is dangerous and could also hinder child growth. And, my parents knew this well. To inculcate the habit of reading and finding solutions on my own, my parents encouraged me to know the probable options and then the final answer to the curiosities I had.
If you see someone acting responsibly and doing their work with proper attention, you also do the same. This was exactly what I learnt from my upbringing. My parents taught me to act, think and work responsibly. This has been one of the most precious treasures I have ever got from my parents as this has helped me being at the position in my company I am now. I am a responsible person and am the trusted one also.
These values taught me the most important thing- to respect my relations. Human being is a social animal and he has to live in a society. This means he has to work in accordance to the norms a society has set. If you know what are your duties and responsibility then you can achieve great feats and live a happy life. My parents taught me to stress on becoming a good human being than being just a successful person with no moral values. These moral and family values are the treasures that I will cherish for the whole my life and these will give me a better and respectable life.
Family is the social unit and the first learning base for a child. Parents inculcate good habits together with duties and nurture their child to become a responsible and good human being. These moral and family values learnt prove to be the stepping stone to success. A child grows up to be a self dependent human being who lives happily.
