Sheetal was worriedly pacing up and down in her living room. Mohan was peacefully sitting on the couch reading a newspaper, completely unaffected.
Sheetal was all worked up. Shardul, her son should have been home almost two hours ago. Why was he late? Why was his phone switched off? She was irritated to see Mohan sitting so carefree.
“Mohan! Aren’t you worried? Do something.”
Mohan peered up from the newspaper and looked at his anxious wife. He replied calmly,
“Sheetal, Shardul is a matured young man. He must be busy or he must have gone out with his friends. It’s a weekend.”
She came and plopped on the couch next to him and grumbled again.
“What if something has happened to him? What if he’s met with an accident? What if his mobile got lost?”
Now Mohan was piqued.
“Why are you thinking negatively? Delay doesn’t mean that he is late because of all the wrong reasons. Think that may be something good has happened with him.”
How many of us think like Mohan? And how many of us get all worked up negatively, like Sheetal?
You’ll be surprised to know that 90% of what we are or what happens with us is because of our thought process. I think even God knew the importance of brain and that’s exactly why it is placed right on top and not in any other part of the body.
Our thinking can make or break us. It’s one kind of a magnetic pull which is within our body. And every disease under the sun is somewhere along the line related to what you think and how you react to different situations and circumstances.
Let us say, there are five people sitting in a room and suddenly they see a fire blazing in the corner. Do you think all five will react and respond similarly? One might panic and start screaming. Another might leap to go extinguish it. Some might just get up and walk away. Yet another might call for help. And the fifth one might still be wondering what to do.
The fire is the same for all five of them. It is the reaction that makes the difference.
Positive thinking, what exactly does it mean? It means to expect good and favourable results in any situation. It means to create thoughts that produces positive energy in you. And believe me it is directly related to law of attraction. You think positively and all good will happen with you. You think negatively and be sure to get the same results.
The biggest benefits of positive thinking: it keeps your body disease free and keeps you looking younger, filled with energy. It definitely adds years to your life. And by the way, who doesn’t want all this?
If you haven’t thought on these lines till now, don’t stress. Start from today. It’s never too late. As long as there is life, there is time. Google is filled with how to achieve positive thinking.
Don’t expect miracles overnight. Stop finding faults in yourself and in others. Slowly, but steadily move towards looking for something good in everything. The peace and happiness will seep in your life gradually. You will not only see the change, but feel it within you. In your heart and in your health.
Welcome each new day with a sunshine smile and mostly certainly, life will smile back at you.
