- Chinese proverb
Whenever things go wrong, we find ourselves worrying a lot about the situation or the things that are going on. Then our mind is no longer in peace but is busy worrying and breaking the situation into pieces. We find that we don't find the accurate solution immediately but are thinking in circles. While working to find solutions, it is more important to work at our own inner peace before we make an attempt to try and find a solution. With the right state of mind, we automatically find that the right decisions are being made by us thus giving us the right results.- Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu
Happiness is not the absence of problems but the ability to deal with them...
Even with the best intentions, we can find ourselves stuck in cycles of negative thinking; often, these are caused due to negative self-belief. These cyclic thoughts waste our time, but more often, they are depressing or even destructive, especially if the cycle is due to a deep-rooted lack of self-esteem or self-confidence. Cyclic negative thoughts, by definition, have become a habit.
However, cycles of thinking can be positive too. Some people almost regularly respond to negative situations or events with feelings of optimism and positivity; they see success and are confident. If this is not natural to us, we can train ourselves to respond in this way. To become optimistic we need to create in our mind images of past success and generate a quiet self-assurance. Thus a cycle of positive thinking gets started and will, in time, become a habit.- Brahma Kumaris, Mt.Abu
