POSITIVE THINKING ALWAYS PAYS
Very often we feel let down. In this state, we feel non-pulsed. This let down may be due to some innocuous remark of somebody against you or against your nears and dears or loss in the business or still worse, when we have lost somebody who stood by you through thick and thin. Reasons may be any; it goes to show that we go off the tangent quite frequently. Oddly enough, when we do not have any reason to be down and out, we tend to take our past tragedies or bad incidents and start feeling low. This becomes our pastime. There are then some strange characters who start worrying about future, knowing full well that our future is unpredictable, therefore, worrying about future is over-stretching our imagination. Everybody will agree with me on this score, Isn’t so? Then for some the past events remain haunting them thus creating an untenable situation for any growth in any field activity.
BAGGAGE OF PAST EVENTS RETARD OUR FORWARD MOVEMENT
All the above past, present and future incidents, real or imaginary, result in suppressing our creative power since we do not take anything with optimism. This hopelessness engulfing us, we are not able to use our inner potential in a meaningful way. The negative thinking makes residency in our consciousness thus adversely impacting our approach towards life and activities thereto. Not using our inner potentials means we remain inert in our further movement in life. Our growth and development takes turn for the worst thereby putting us in dire straits in every aspect we undertake or not venture to undertake because of negativism overshadowing our consciousness.
WITH CONCORD WE GROW BUT WITH DISCORD WE DECELERATE
Essentially, in order to remove our passivity, we have to start afresh, with clean slate, with no past baggage. It should start with change in our thinking. Seeing darkness in everything will not help. Hope in all hopeless things should take firm belief in our psyche. When discord replaces concord then only then we can confront the challenges head on which knock our doorsteps. Therefore, with harmony we can change our present thinking and unburden ourselves from the baggage of past discords.
WE EVOLVE WITH NEW EXPERIENCES AND THEIR POSITIVE APPROACH
It is well said, time is a great healer. With time, we get new experiences, these experiences teach us new lessons. It is not that we always succeed. Our failings should give us experience and we should endeavour to try again. Our duty should be to try sincerely, without carrying much for results. Losing ourselves in the outcome game and not being serious in our efforts results in retarding our progress. We become bogged down only thinking about ‘outcome’ without taking recourse to new approaches if the approach adopted by us fails. Out duty is to make an honest effort. The Alfred Tennyson has right said Old orders changeth yielding place to new’ borne in mind for those who remain confined in the quagmire of their not so evolved thinking. Old rut should replace the knowledge gained over a period of time and should help us evolve our thinking and help us adopt positivism, in our thinking and action too.
EXPERIENCES ARE A GREAT GUIDE FOR FORWARD MOVEMENT
Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to make sincere effort to change, to evolve with every experience that we gain, every failure or success should make us change, and every incident or event should not become a roadblock for our further movement. In other words, we should consider, what we have learnt since yesterday. Our answer should never be ‘nothing’ but we have to be honest with us. By following this course of action, we can evolve to our fullest potential thereby we can face any challenge which comes in our lives with confidence and self-belief. But this should not make us egocentric.
TOTAL BELIEF IN GOD ADD TO OUR SELF-BELIEF
We should also thank God for guiding us at every step we take for our further movement in any enterprise. We should always keep in mind that there is some hidden hand which is giving fillip to our movements. It is our duty of every individual to lead a spiritual oriented life with full belief on himself/herself and Almighty God with positive thinking even in any situation one is placed.
