AGGRESSION AT WORKPLACE
I have sufficient motivation and inspiration but I am too submissive.
I have a lot of ideas of bringing a change at workplace but I am seldom able to show my high spirit and induce my manager’s confidence in my work.
I have been told on several occasions that I am aggressive, will this destroy by career ?
Can my aggression of getting work done, stop people from talking to me?
We live in a world where people are judged because of their aggressions . Aggression has become a Taboo. When we think of aggression we suddenly create a mindset of Rash driving, Road Rage , Violent nature, Abusive tongue , a stubborn and an obstinate person.
There are now a different breed of aggressive people. Ones who are not aggressive to others but extremely aggressive to their work. These are the people who are highly motivated and are only out to achieve. The want to win. They listen to opinions of others and show the aggression ,passion to showcase their work .
These people do not get pushed and shoved and walk into a Boardroom battles only to win. These people are above the assertive and passive people’s breed. They already know what opinion people have about change in office and how they will react in the workplace.
We had discussed earlier how people get stuck in wrong jobs and then they have to take a huge lunge forward to attain their desired jobs in the post Fire In Your Soul . What if in your place , you have several people who are not doing what they desire but still enjoy “taking away your wind ” away .
Have sufficient Motivation and Inspiration but you give up too early? The answer is trying to be a bit more aggressive at work. You have everything you need to excel , but you will continue to be stepped upon till you show Passion( read aggression here ) . One fights for the thing that he loves. So why sit back?
I have a lot of ideas of bringing a change at workplace but I am seldom able to show my high spirit and induce my manager’s confidence in my work. You have been hit by people trying to unnecessarily dominate you. Overcome that , share your opinion once , I am sure you will start gaining confidence. If not, then try share your opinion on lower platforms. Once you have gained a lot of confidence know you are ready to speak at a higher platform.
Note– People who are passive get shut very quickly. People with assertive nature wait for everyone to speak to then bring their point. What if you are aggressive and say something which makes your managers not wanting to know what others have to say ?
I have been told on several occasions that I am aggressive, will this destroy by career ? Aggression in the right direction is always good. Aggression leading to violence or people getting hurt should always be shunned.

Aggression for work and aggression with others is easily identifiable .Please do not worry people will not stop talking you but more people will get attracted to you who have similar passions.
