If You Think.
Almost about 2 years back I did not really understand the meaning of “thinking positive”
Whenever I came across any thoughts or quotes, I felt that these were just trivial and didn’t have any relation with real life.
I had a so called belief in God but that belief was devoid of any purpose. While praying, I was always selfish and materialistic.
Then a stage came in my life when I was becoming overwhelmed with the circumstances around me. I had lost all hope and was facing so much so called difficulty in choosing a right path for me. I asked myself “Why is my life so complex?”.
Two days prior to when I had said that, me and my sister had bought this book The Secret, which everybody was talking about. Being a ferocious reader, I bought it but I never bothered to read it as I thought it was complete bull. When I had asked why my life was so complex, I saw this book under my table and I gave it a shot.
I read the first thirty pages in one hour and during that one hour, I laughed and I cried tears of joy as I finally discovered something wonderful and life changing.
The next day I decided to go to my school counselor for a career counseling, something I had never done in my entire life. I was surprised that she already knew what I knew. She was really happy for me and I told her what I really want in life which was to become the Head Boy of my school at that time and to become an actor in my life.
She just told me to continue being the way I am and to read a poem before I leave her office. I read the poem “If You Think” and I felt a sudden joy as I was able to relate it to my life!
What happened in the next few months was no less than a miracle to me!!
I had become the Head Boy of my school and the counselor Ma’am became my Godmother.
So concluding my long story I’d like to say that it is our thoughts and beliefs which shape our lives. Think the impossible to make it possible.
