A child describing his world:” in the morning I see the sun, the blue sky, mummy and daddy smile. During the day I love to run around and play with my siblings. Sometime I pretend to be a super hero, famous football player or doctor. Mum said if I do my homework right I could be a star, like the stars in the sky.”
Don’t you admire children’s pure soul?
A child may cry for a moment and with a little attempt from you to make him/her laugh, he/she would laugh and make your heart smile.
Have you ever wondered where do children get their positivity from? Do they think about yesterday’s problems or stress about tomorrow’s work? All they remember from yesterday is the new behaviour or skill they learnt. And they believe that if they live today doing things right, they will get the reward tomorrow from parents or school. Yesterday gives you a lesson, today a living moment and tomorrow a reward. How simple is life when you look at it from child’s perspective.
It seems like we were born with positive attitude, however, as we grow up we tend to go with our negative thoughts and fear of failure and judgment.
Some of you will be thinking now that this approach will be very difficult for an adult to adapt to with all the responsibilities he/she has, but believe me all it needs from you is to keep trying, try to find your inner peace. You might fail hundreds time but you will get there if you keep trying.
“You only run out of chances when you stop trying” Brian Tracy.
It is up to you; you could just live your life with all the stress, worry, and guilt and complain about it. Or you could take an action and try. You could be a follower of your inner fears or creator of your peaceful world.
An adult says: “believe me the universe is the cause of all my problems. Everything around me is the cause of my failure. My boss hates me. People always disappoint me. World is full with wars. I’m tired of life.” Blaming the universe attitude, did it work? Do you think it will help you solve your problems or overcome your fears?!
It only gets you into a stage where you lose hope and motivation and you decide to set down and stop trying. “Don’t die before you are really dead” Brian Tracy
Make a change today. First let’s say “thank god for giving us this life” and then think about a change you could make today. For example, greet everyone at work with a smile. Or study for your exam with a belief that success is your destiny. Or if you are worried about your responsibilities, make a list of it, write what you can do about it today, do it.
Live a life of beauty. In the morning, admire the sunrise, the blue sky and the smile of the people you love. In the evening, enjoy the sunset, the stars in the sky and a meal with who you love.
Your thoughts … make them positive
You choices … live them
Your decisions … never regret them
Your thoughts, your choices and your decisions reflect the beauty of your world.
