Sample Answer

Introduction

  • Being an altruistic person, I have this habit of helping others.

Who he or she is?

  • Last year I encouraged my younger sister to step outside her comfort zone.

What you encouraged him/her to do?

  • Due to the corona pandemic, the government imposed a strict lockdown in our nation.
  • Because of that, we all family members remained confined to the comfort of our time.
  • During that time, my sister had gained enormous weight and looked bulky
  • Since the gyms were closed, she was not willing to do exercise at home.
  • At that time, I advised her to do running inside our township to lose weight.

How he/she reacted? And explain why you encouraged him/her?

  • To my dismay, she had disagreed and told me that for her running is a turbulent task.
  • Being her elder brother, I was really worried about her health and wanted her to do running in any case.
  • I made her read a book called “The compound effect” by Darren Hardy.
  • The writer of this book has set a principle to do daunting tasks.
  • And that is to take tiny steps every day, to climb the ladder of success.
  • Based on the technique prescribed in this book, I advised her to just run for 50 metres per day for one week.
  • To my surprise, she agreed.
  • Since running such a small distance was a cakewalk for her, she did it with tremendous ease.
  • Next week I increased her target to 100 metres, to which she immediately agreed.
  • For the next two months, I kept on increasing her target.
  • To her surprise, she lost 15 kgs weight in a short period of four months. This is how I had encouraged my sister to do something that he/she didn’t want to do.
