Oh, had I had Rs 10 crore I could have liveda better life;if only I had not married her I could have seen a better and more useful partner; had I joined a different company Iwould have grown much faster in my career and had I lived in another city my growth would have seen far better times.
Do such negative thoughts often flash in your mind?Such negativity lead to depression and these painful thoughts keep recurring further spoiling your chances of growth. Sometimes it’s not the pain that makes you suffer; it’s your own negative thoughts that make things seem worse.
In fact you are full of energy and positivity and possessing a charismatic attitude. Yet you are under debt today not possessing a sound health; your life is not well-balanced. Today, you are struggling for success which is eluding you.
Remember, youcan come out from all these painful situations. Life was created to live with a positive attitude so that you live peacefully and happily with others. World is full of happiness and unstoppable success only if you live with positive and open ideas and beliefs. The problem really is that you are hanging on to old negative thoughts and emotions thereby harming only yourself and attracting even more negative energy.
There is now an urgent need for mind-training and self-assessment. You must realize how powerful your thoughts are and if you do you would never think a negative thought.
When we have negative thoughts, we produce toxic responses in our body that make us sick, restless and unhappy. We then go to doctor who makes our lives further miserable as we get addicted to taking more and more medicines to something that is not physical but originates in your mind. Why not resolve and make a conscious effort to change your thought pattern today for a healthier tomorrow? The cure lies in your mind, not with the doctors as once you stop feeding your mind with negative thoughts you then stop believing it!
Negative feelings and thoughts keep peace of mind away. You need to have great vibrations inside to have great successes in life. Believe in what you are not what others say you are. The real secret in life is to overcome your weaknesses by working hard and not racing with someone who is superior to you. The more you better yourself in the race to overcome your weaknesses the stronger you get – both in mind and body.
The first step to success is to understand the world as it exists. Don’t go around foolishly saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first much before you were born.Change your thinking and you can change your world.
Whatever the circumstances be true to yourself. This will help you to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
Do not waste time in excuses, blaming people or discussing past which is all water under the bridge. If you stop excusing yourself you can reach to a higher standard than anyone else had expected of you. So never excuse yourself.
The true joy in life is to shun the idea that the world will not devote itself in making you happy. Man is a social animal and you belong to the whole community and yet you have the privilege to do whatever you can as long as you live. But your claim is never on happiness but only on your action. True happiness therefore is what comes to you when you work harder as you rejoice for life’s own sake. Life like a ‘candle’ is a brief one and as you hold it for the moment you would want it to burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations.
