ATTITUDE MATTERS

ATTITUDE MATTERS

When it rains all birds search for shelter but it’s only the eagle that avoids rain by flying above the clouds.

This behaviour of eagles if thought upon actually gives us a lesson that:

“Problems are common for all of us but it’s our ATTITUDE towards them that makes the difference.”

Attitude is the state of mind with which one approach a task, a challenge, a person or life in general. It is how someone behaves towards somebody or something.

The importance of attitude is that it is the basis for everything in our lives. Our attitude determines how we react to adversity and overcome challenges, It also shows our ability to grow & learn and create bonds with others.

Well said by Charles Swindoll;

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude in life. Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearances, giftedness, or skill. It can make or break a company, a home . The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for the day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is attitude – I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you and everyone. We are in charge of our attitudes.”

A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug. It has the power to make you more happier and healthier. So keep calm because your attitude determines your altitude in life.

“Your ability is what you are capable of doing, Motivation determines what you do, But your attitude determines how well you do it.”

Always Do your Best and Leave the Rest

Why does this happen with me?
What’s my fault?
Why only me?

These are the thoughts that comes to our mind when life does not goes the way we want it to be and our desires are not fulfilled.Very soon the negative thoughts find their way into our mind and we start feeling strucked and stressed. When the things are favourable these feelings seldom occur.

People always feel that life is a game of luck-thousands of people spend money on buying lottery tickets, but only a few are rewarded. Pleasant and unpleasant things happen to all of us in our daily practises and relationships – that’s the nature of life.

But why is it all about luck only?? An infamous dictator, who was instrumental in killing thousands of innocent people believed that “hard luck lines can be changed with a knife’s edge” You’d also often hear people say things like – “यह तो पिछले जन्म के कर्मों का फल हैं (This is a result of what you did in your past life)” and we too give in and believe that what ever is happening is due to destiny and may be the fault is in our stars only ; But we forget what nobleman Cassius says to Brutus in the Act 1,Scene 2 of Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar – “The fault ,dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves that we are underlings.”

So here’s something to remember- the future is not in our hands,only god knows about it. Does that mean we keep fretting about what may happen??? No,we should not. Whatever the situation be, we should just do the best that we can and then leave the rest.

This is even well explained in our hindu mythologies,as said in the Bhagavad Gita; कर्म करो, फल की चिंता मत रखो ( Do your duty without thinking about results)

अर्थात-

Another example to this is a very beautiful and profound sanskrit term that is found in the ancient texts, scriptures and philosophy . This word is Vairagya ( वैराग्य) and this word in itself has a deep meaning to offer even in this era. Vairagya in simple sense means deattachment, and we all too need to have a sense of deattachment . Deattachment not from what we are doing{our work or actions} but from the outcome of our actions, which is ultimately not in our hands. There is always a certain way with which things happen and they will take their own time.

So we must focus on what is in our hands or what we can do and that is work & once you have done your 100%; you have given everything that you think you can,without any regrets.Once you have done your best & you know this is the best that I could have done, after that you must be a little deattached from your results because if somehow the results are not in your favour, you must not give up trying for the next time because till when ,if your efforts are 100%, till when will you not succeed.

So for your inner peace,Do your best and Leave the rest. Let this be your inner thought.
