A t any point of time we should never underestimate our power to change ourselves. A Positive Attitude is a person’s passport to a better tomorrow. Think, Act, and Talk with enthusiasm, and you will attract positive results. When we think, speak and act in ways to support success, we are firing on all cylinders. That is the way to achieve great success in our lives. Our attitude is our window to the world. Better keep ourselves clean and bright since we are the windows through which we should see the world. Our attitudes work all the 24 hours to see the good and bad in our lives. Consider the thoughts of a child who is learning to walk. When he stumbles and falls down, what does he do? He gets up and again tries to be steady in his walk not to fall down.
He does not point fingers at his mother or father for giving wrong training. He does not quit, but continues to try to be steady in his attempt, and in the end, he succeeds. His thoughts are clean, and he feels competent to conquer the world. It is our duty to keep the window clean to see the beautiful things that exist across the window! We always have a choice to change our directions, and reach a more beautiful and fascinating destination. A happy person is not surrounded by happy circumstances, but his attitude is positive, and that makes all the difference. It is only when we clean our attitude that success principles can shine through. When we continue a positive attitude with other success principles, we become strong and unstoppable. We are all Human Magnets. Some attract dark shades, and others attract bright sunlight. We all become what we think about. It is necessary to nurture and nourish our minds with healthy thoughts. Our circumstances reflect what we are thinking about.
Our beliefs brought us where we are today, and our thinking from this point forward will take us to different destinations altogether! All of us can change our thoughts, and change the results in life altogether. Whenever you get an opportunity, listen to motivational talks, or switch on the radio to listen to good news which can make our minds happy. Only remember that we ourselves make us happy or unhappy. Our minds have unbelievable power.
There is nothing to fear about because in most cases, events come to a happy ending. Robert Louis Stevenson said, “Keep your fears to yourself but share your courage with others.” My teacher used to say, “Never despair, and if you do, reverse life to come to bright sunlight.” The battle of life is not to the brave alone, but all of us who face problems and try to overcome it somehow. Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened, but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace like a clock during the thunderstorm. We are all born to succeed, and not to fail. Like happiness, success has always been one of the fundamental goals of mankind. Many famous writers have told about success in many different ways, but the rules have never changed, and perhaps will never will. Blessed is the man who has found his work of his choice. Our programme is to work, for man was designed for labour.
We shall live by the sweat of our brow. What each man has to do is to try to progress in his profession, to strive for constant improvement, so as to become effective and skillful in whatever career he has chosen, and to attain superiority by the cultivation of his natural gifts and his devotion to work. That is the real path, and all the rest is dreaming and speculation. The man who is born with a talent which he is meant to use, finds his greatest happiness in using it. In the long run, it makes little difference how cleverly others are deceived, if we are not doing what we have undertaken as our personal contribution to the welfare of the world. What shall we do when hope is gone.
The only way is to sail on and continue the journey. Ultimately, we reach our preconceived happy destination. Discover your true potential and get what you want out of life. Learn to the assertive, and learn how to make life full of sunlight. Also get yourself noticed by those who really matter. Experts wrote for the readers, “Keep everything brief but meaningful. Understand what you are telling about. Talk with passion, enthusiasm and excitement. While speaking, focus on four or five key issues. Move around and maintain eye contact so that we are connected and become one.” The idea is to dissolve with the thoughts of good people.
