The Power of Positive

This story was forwarded by Pankaj. Please read, it is very powerful.


You all know below story. However worth reading once again.

Here's an excerpt from the life of Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, (Got it from a magazine: TechnoFIRST, Oct 2008)

"I remember my dad teaching me the power of language at a very young age. Not only did my dad understand that specific words affect our mental pictures, but he understood words are a powerful programming factor in lifelong success.

"One particularly interesting event occurred when I was eight. As a kid, I was always climbing trees, poles, and literally hanging around upside down from the rafters of our lake house. So, it came to no surprise for my dad to find me at the top of a 30-foot tree swinging back and forth. My little eight-year-old brain didn't realise the tree could break or I could get hurt. I just thought it was fun to be up so high..

"My older cousin, Tammy, was also in the same tree. She was hanging on the first big limb, about ten feet below me. Tammy's mother also noticed us at the exact time my dad did. About that time a huge gust of wind came over the tree. I could hear the leaves start to rattle and the tree begin to sway. I remember my dad's voice over the wind yell, 'Bart, Hold on tightly.' So I did. The next thing I know, I heard Tammy screaming at the top of her lungs, laying flat on the ground. She had fallen out of the tree.

"I scampered down the tree to safety. My dad later told me why she fell and I did not.. Apparently, when Tammy's mother felt the gust of wind, she yelled out, 'Tammy, don't fall!' And Tammy did...fall.

"My dad then explained to me that the mind has a very difficult time processing a negative image. In fact, people who rely on internal pictures cannot see a negative at all. In order for Tammy to process the command of not falling, her nine-year-old brain had to first imagine falling, then try to tell the brain not to do what it just imagined. Whereas, my eight-year-old brain instantly had an internal image of me hanging of tightly.

"This concept is especially useful when you are attempting to break a habit or set a goal.. You can't visualise not doing something. The only way to properly visualise not doing something is to actually find a word for what you want to do and visualise that."

This story truly illustrates the Power of Positive thinking.

Views on Positivity - Winston Churchill

Hey Guys! JSCA!

For many of us a new school year is about to start or we are getting ready to make that exciting transition from school to college. Whatever we are about to do, an important thing is that we are optimistic about it and we see all the good that can come from it. Positivi
ty is the key thing that made many famous people lift up their heads and try again. Basically, if you w
ant to stay happy, you have to stay positive. I would like to share some quotes from Winston Churchill, British orator, author, and Prime Minister during World War II, on the topic of positive thinking.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
- Winston Churchill

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity: an optimist sees the opportu
nity in every difficulty"
- Winston Churchill

...This is what Dada has to say on positivity...

"In real viewpoint shuddhatma, Pure relative viewpoint positive."
- Dadashri

An inspiring example of positivity

Check out this video guys - very inspiring . Its about a football player

Always side with the positive - ( positive na paksh ma rehvu ) - Dadashri

Always develop a vision ( drashti ) that can find out something good even from a bad thing or person. And by doing so, slowly our mind & intellect will become pure day by day.

Positivity is a very big strength . Success follows who are positive in all situations.
