A CUP OF OPTIMISM

In our daily life we go through lots of experiences and some of us might learn few lessons from them too. Some of our experiences forces us into thinking negatively and we forget to see the other side of the fence. Thinking positively is just not laid in front of us, REMEMBER THAT!
We have to train our mind to be optimistic and be positive, look at the brighter side of the picture.

The great example is of the glass filled with water.

Glass-Half-

How we view it is up to us completely. Seeing a glass half full, portrays a positive mind set. It depicts good and sound health. Such people have a better vision for the future as they are motivate to achieve more rather than thinking negatively which on  the other hand demotivates them and they ultimately perform low. 

People close to me notice the positivity in me, that I don’t feel low. Well YES! I don’t. It doesn’t mean that there is nothing wrong that happens or all is perfect (which we all know that nothing can be perfect). I simply keep on filling myself with a dose of optimism which keeps the pessimism away. And apart from it all, I try to fix the things that went wrong, or try to keep myself away from people who are cry babies or have a tendency to be negative all the time. 

Don’t blame yourself for things that went wrong because of someone else’s decision. That was on the first place out of your control. There is always something better coming your way even in the gloomiest of situations. Remember you alone are responsible for your happiness and you alone can make yourself happy. ALL STARTS FROM YOU. Optimistic person will find a silver lining in the cloud even in the darkest moment while a pessimist will cry even on a happy day.

  • think positively.
  • have an action plan.
  • be in company of positive people.
  • be active.
  • let go of things that you can’t control.

THINK DIFFERENTLY. 

  • “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”

    —Milton Berle.

    • “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

      —Sir Winston Churchill.

    • “Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”

      —Anthony J. D’Angelo.

ARE YOU THE OSTRICH?

There are so many problems that we come across our daily life, for some we find short term solutions, while for others we think and plan out for longer benefits, for long time duration. Shying away from something that is troublesome, or which provokes anxiety and leads to fear, is not the solution, and have harmful affects one’s life.

Know what bothers you, find out the reasons behind it, look out for the options that are present for you to come out of it, weigh your future in the pendulum if it affects your future life, but most importantly, acknowledge that it is creating havoc in your life in the background. Knowing is just not the end. Acting accordingly and putting things into action are the real movers and shakers.

Don’t be the one who runs away from problems, situations and circumstances, which he/she cannot deal with. Being an ostrich is not the right option at all.

Ignorance is the culprit of many problems, and so is knowing ignorance, where you knowing things, yet you fail to act, where you just sit and watch. Its your life, have a grip, understand that you have something really beautiful in form of LIFE, just don’t ruin it by your ignorance.

Knowing your ignorance about issues or problems, means that you are denying the reality, and are living in state of illusion, where you perceive the reality as some what different. This illusion will land you in a more difficult situation or circumstances. So, why not snap out of it. We all know that to avoid pain, we take actions so that we are not hurt. Same goes with ignorance, whether its deliberate ignorance or simply ignorance, it is your duty to make things right for yourself.

Yes, yes I know that we all try to take actions to save ourselves for all that trouble, or pain. But.

  • Are the actions and measures effective?
  • The course of action is the right one?
  • Is it based on knowledge, experience, and conscious thinking?
  • Are you really committed to it?
  • Do you really want to change things?

There is always room for improvement, improvement in the way we think, the way we function,  the way we put our thoughts into actions, the way we motivate ourselves, the way we stay determined. 

Start by:

  • Pinpointing the root causes of your problems.
  • Understanding that what harms it pose.
  • knowing what the threat really means to you.
  • Understanding the real meaning of LIFE.
  • Gain more knowledge into your problem, whether it is health related or some daily life circumstances.
  • Think up of the best way you can deal with it.
  • Have confidence, and know that you can accomplish your goals.
  • Prioritize your LIFE.
  • Analyse your support system.
  • Gain positive energy, and avoid things that are negative, or people who have negative energy in them.
  • Freshen up your mind, and open up for more wisdom, vibrancy.
  • Know that only YOU can change everything.
  • Stick to your decisions, ones that are based on reality, not on some day dreaming.
