The Year 2012 started in UAE as like the last year and seems to be like last year. After a very long gap today I planned to pen something for my blog. I was not able to find time or even a good subject to discuss or to blog.
There were couple of issues in personal and professional life and I was not able to concentrate on anything other than my daily routine of going to office. In the last couple of weeks, I am feeling too stressed and I am unable to come out of it. Whatever I do, went wrong, right from professional environment, personal relationship, friendship, financial transactions.. I was literally with the frowning face showing my anger, disinterested and exchanging bitter words. This attitude is going to spoil my image in front of the people with whom I gained a value with great difficulty.
I wanted to write something for the blog but mind was not ready to scribble anything. Facebook and Gtalk are the rescuers for most of the issues but today social networking also failed to cheer up me. I was surfing and having a chat with my friends. In the mean time, I read the below quote
“No matter how difficult or unrewarding, continue doing the right things.”
This is how I was earlier, irrespective of the rewards or difficulties, I used to do it, If my conscious says it is right, I will do that. But now, I am going against the above quote.
At that moment I decided that I have to write about the attitude. Yes My Attitude is the issue. If I wish to come out of my issues I can throw it in a second and can make me cheerful. Do I need somebody else to console me? If I can’t make me happy then who else can make me happy?
It was like waking up from the deep sleep, I woke up and said to myself that I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood.’ I choose to be in a good mood.I decided to take the negatives to positive side. Sometimes, it may look foolishness but to go with the wind, I have to be in a positive mind to achieve my goal.
You can’t be a positive person all of the time but in reality am a negative person all the time and I prefer to change my attitude in this 2012 and want to go ahead with a positive attitude.
Everything can be taken from a man but … the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. The Major Key to better my future is me and it is me who have to decide what I want and how I want. YES POSITIVE Attitude is the beautiful key which can seal my stress and make me to bring back peace to me.
Living in stress is going to create problems in all the hemisphere of the life, problems in my health, professional life, stressed relationship, losing friendship all because of some unwanted elements which I am not ready to throw and complicating my day to day routines. I read couple of articles about attitude and luckily god guided me to read those articles.
I was thinking that growing in the professional way will make OTHERS to feel that am growing, shining, am best, but of all the things that can have an effect on future, I started believing that personal growth is the greatest. Personal Growth can happen only with the attitude and I recalled the learned lesson earlier and it is time to recall it in this year 2012.
The Book “Fish” taught me “LOVING WHAT YOU DO”
1.”CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE”
2. PLAY (While you work)
3. MAKE THEIR DAY
4. BE PRESENT
I was following the above but some how missed due to some unwanted things happened in professional environment. I have to accept that I am impatient or I feel bored with what I am doing but that is part of life and I have to go ahead. I know that these kind of situations will come in everyone’s life and I can’t chose to run away from my responsibility because there is no guarantee that the next job will be any different. CHOICE IS MINE not others and nobody is forcing me to be in stress..
Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time I see myself complaining about others, I can choose to see their mistakes or I can see the positive side in it. I choose the positive side of life.” I learned this couple of years back but I forgot to keep it in my mind.I have learned from all my mistakes and from bad experiences but somehow this time the stress is more and I am unable to digest it so easily. May be a longing vacation can help me to come out of it. Till that time, I can’t have this pain and I have to kill the stress to lead a progressing life. Sudden change in my mind is only because of reading the above quote and the below content.
Do It Anyway
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
LOVE THEM ANYWAY.
If you do good, people accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
DO GOOD ANYWAY.
If you are successful, you win false and true enemies.
The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow.
DO GOOD ANYWAY.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
BE HONEST AND FRANK ANYWAY.
What you spent years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you help them.
HELP PEOPLE ANYWAY.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
GIVE THE WORLD THE BEST YOU’VE GOT ANYWAY.
