Good Morning Everybody! Welcome back to Black Sheep Heritage. As many of you may already know, first and foremost, I like to start most of our articles by giving a heartfelt THANK YOU! Whether you are new to the brand or a frequent visitor, none of this would be possible without your continued support, a lot of it. We are growing and spreading the message day by day. It has been a rollercoaster of emotions to say the least. Today, we wanted to touch on what makes a Black Sheep so special.
To put is simply, a Black Sheep is both complex and dynamic at the same time. As you’ve heard me say before, we are no one trick ponies. So, inspired by this questions, I dive slightly deeper into WHY its important to be dynamic. So without further delay, here is, Why it’s Important to Be a Dynamic Individual. Lets begin…
The protagonist of any well-written story is a character that goes through a significant change over the course of the novel.
In real life, you are the protagonist of your story. You are the main character who is on the journey of living a life that will dazzle you when you look back and recall everything that you have done. The key is to be ever changing and dynamic. Because if you really are the protagonist of your life, you are forever learning, growing, and evolving and having many significant moments along the way that reveal to you your amazing capabilities you may not have known you had.
Why it’s Important to Be a Dynamic Individual
A dynamic individual is the one who has the ability to make sense of a situation and feel, think, or behave in an appropriate manner. It may entail diverting from your usual way of feeling, thinking, and/or behaving in order to handle the situation well. A dynamic lifestyle means you are not just stuck in one spot. Instead, you are constantly in a state of flux. You are evolving, changing, growing, and advancing yourself. There are several key benefits of living a dynamic life and many reasons why it is important to be a dynamic individual:
Experience is known to incorporate flexibility in even the most stubborn and rigid of men. It is the different experiences from life that make you realize the need to be dynamic when it comes to how you feel, think, or behave. Being a dynamic individual is not just an added quality; it is a necessity, particularly in today’s fast-paced world which is very complex and dynamic itself. Things are changing at a rapid rate because of easy communication and new technology. From experience and learning the hard way, people realize that they have to be flexible and dynamic otherwise they won’t get too far ahead in life.
You can’t be the change if you can’t understand change. Having a dynamic mindset is the one of the greatest perks of being a dynamic individual. Such a mindset means you have beliefs and values that are rational and applicable across a variety of situations and hold valid when you test them. Those who lack a dynamic mindset cannot accept what’s going on in their surroundings and hence, they generally remain in denial. They don’t reach the stage where they can even try to change their reactions because they fail at the first step. Prime example are those who experience culture shock.
Dynamic individuals possess very good communication skills. Since they realize that they will be experiencing different situations, people, and complicated matters, they make sure that they have the following communication qualities:
• Using simple language (avoiding jargons)
• Not interrupting others
• Articulate – the ability to speak clearly
• Thinking before speaking
• Affirmation – restating what others say
These communication qualities can prove to be valuable in all walks of life.
Nature of Work
Some jobs require you to be dynamic. In order to make sure that you impress your clients, achieve your goals, and not allow any opportunity to pass you by, you need to be able to adapt quickly to your surroundings. Jobs relevant to the judicial system, leadership, crisis management domain, etc. require an individual to be dynamic. Having a dynamic personality will allow you to process the change that’s going on. It can also provide the opportunity to determine how to behave appropriately.
The Will to Identify and Modify Goals
People set goals so they can achieve what they want and progress in life. But oftentimes they confuse their goals with their vision or they simply become very narrow minded. This can result in getting left behind, experiencing frustration and failure, and possibly giving up.
People who live a dynamic life recognize the nature of goals.
In this way, they can learn whether their goals are obstructing their progress to their vision so they can modify or change them. Some people are rigid and they don’t change their behavior once they have made up their mind. This can be quite detrimental to their progress as they may lose many opportunities and fail to understand why they are not achieving their goals.
These are some of the key aspects that highlight the importance of being a dynamic individual. Dynamic living is a deep approach to life in which your actions are directed and grounded by deeply held conviction. Dynamic personality and lifestyle make you strong and help you find the best in you. In the marines, we would say “Semper Gumbi” , in olden times they would refer to it as “Vincit Qui Se Vincit”, nowadays we refer to it as simply being well rounded, a jack of all trades so to speak.
