On the off chance that you’ve seen the Disney motion picture Aladdin, then chances are you’re familiar with the expression “Diamond in the Rough.” When Jaffar is trying to open the Cave of Wonders, the cave reveals to him that he needs to find the “Diamond in the Rough” Which (SPOILER ALERT!) ended up being Aladdin.
Before we get into how Aladdin and the Cave of Wonders is relevant to us, we should take a more profound investigate the phrase “a diamond in the rough.” The procedure to create diamonds is totally natural. The diamonds start out as a basic bit of coal until the point when a liquid shake heats unadulterated carbon under colossal weight which causes the diamond crystals to be framed. Volcanic activity will, after some time, then push the diamond to the earth’s surface. Where it can be discovered covered in the earth usually by miners. Then the diamond still has to get cleaned and cleaned before it will shine and turn into the beautiful diamond that we find in stores and on adornments.
Going back to Aladdin, from all appearances he resembled a road kid, he stole with a specific end goal to eat, didn’t have much regard for authority or the law, and his future didn’t look that brilliant. However, once he teamed up with the genie and introduced himself as Prince Ali, he started acting more refined, he was able to utilize his easygoing nature to his advantage, and he sparkled. He passed himself off as a real prince.
I realize that I’m breaking down the character traits of a Disney character, yet the lessons that we can take away from Aladdin are real. You can apply it to your life, you won’t get a magic carpet or a genie to help transform yourself, yet individuals are amazing. Not at all like the diamond which must be naturally flawless keeping in mind the end goal to achieve flawlessness, once it’s taken a shot at by individuals then the value diminishes, individuals have the ability of introspection. We can take a gander at ourselves and see our flaws, this allows us to deal with ourselves.
No one is great. We as a whole have our little, and now and again major, flaws. A few people are speedy to anger, snappy to put others down, pathological liars, overeaters, jealous of others, lack of regard, lack of patience, this rundown of conceivable human flaws can continue endlessly. The great thing about individuals is that we can chip away at ourselves. Everybody has a bit “diamond” in them, once you comprehend what you want to take a shot at; you can start to put the necessary weight and training to dispose of the negative traits. This will bring out the positive in you, and you will sparkle like a diamond.
The same can be said for positive traits that are covered up beneath the surface. Everybody has great qualities, they may not present them all the time, charitable, neighborly, helping others out, random acts of kindness, being there for another person. In some cases these traits lay dormant, because they are overshadowed by the more dominant negative traits in the paragraph above.
I’m not sitting here saying change is easy, because it’s most certainly not. You can’t simply wake up one day and say, I’m worn out on losing my patience starting today I will have more patience for everybody. That may labor for a one day settle, yet without working on changing and getting free of the negative, you won’t have the capacity to sustain your new viewpoint for long. Change takes work, yet in the long haul you’ll see that it’s generally advantageous. Put in the work and you’ll reveal yourself to be a genuine “Diamond in the Rough.”
