7 Things Men Can Learn From Their Mothers

We call our mothers superwomen and love when they pamper us, but we don’t really think we can learn anything from them. You might be surprised at how much you can actually learn from mothers if you really put your mind to it. Here are seven things that every man must learn from his mother to lead a more successful life.

How To Multitask

Let’s start with the most obvious one. We call our mothers superwomen because they balance everything that is thrown at them without any gripe. They can prepare your father’s tiffin, get your sibling dressed and prepare breakfast for you in the morning as if it were the simplest things to do. The same story repeats itself at night and goes on for days on end. Unless mothers could multitask, such a thing would never be possible. It’s an effective lesson every man must learn.

How To Develop EQ

Men like to define themselves by their machoness. However, ever so often it is necessary to show empathy and work on your Emotional Quotient. Not only does this humanise you, it also shows you are willing to listen to others and have a soft core. While mothers seem hardwired with enough EQ for the entire family, working on your own emotional levels will take you further in work and life than you realise.

How To Endure Without Complaint

Indian mothers will hardly ever complain about their children disrupting their lives or ending their promising careers. They, in fact, take offense to anyone who complaints about motherhood. However, bringing up a child is no easy task and in a patriarchal society like ours, the strength of Indian mothers to endure whatever comes their way in order to bring up their children is not only commendable but worth respecting and emulating as well.

How To Balance Work and Life

Today’s woman does not like to be housebound after turning into a mom. She wants to be successful as well as look after her house. The amount of micro-management and sheer will through which today’s mothers manage their work and life is something every man who complains about work-life issues should learn from.

How To Be Passionate

Only a man’s passion can carry him to his ultimate goal. Unless you have passion for what you do, you will find it extremely difficult to make it to the top of anything you are chasing. If you don’t trust us, look at how passionately your mother does all the chores day in and day out without complaining. If she can be so passionate for her family, you can definitely be passionate about yourself and your work.

How To Think About Others

A mother thinks about her needs and wants at the very end of the family chain. Whether it is her own family or in-laws or relatives, she will go out of her way to make everybody feel comfortable and ensure they are not inconvenienced. This might be despite the fact that she’s feeling ill or doesn’t have enough help at her disposal to do everything by herself. She earns our love and respect by doing so and so can you if you did the same.

How To Love Unconditionally

Lastly, if there is one thing that all mothers share in common it is their unconditional love for their children and family. Mothers will love you no matter what the situation. Such unconditional love is hard to come by in today’s materialistic world and is a quality to cherish. Imagine if men could do the same instead of fighting silly wars, inflating their ego and losing their top at the drop of a hat.
