Troubled by the demons in your mind, and the big bad world outside, you look for some concrete help and not some often repeated and almost non-sincere advice for ‘being positive’. ‘What the hack!’. This is not what you needed. This is just people washing their hands of the responsibility. Being positive is something you have heard so many times that you have grown immune to it. It is just a cliché- a phrase, beaten to death by the small talk talkers.
Yeah, it is a cliche, or it may not be one, depending on what you what you make out of this phrase. But, if you can imbibe the message by erecting a wall in your mind, bigger than the Great wall of China and higher than the ice wall of the North, just to keep out the negative thoughts, then you may realize that the clichéd phrase actually works.
It is easier said than done! True, but it is not improbable either. There are two ways for remaining positive-
1. By keeping out the negative thoughts, and’
2. By filling up your minds with so many positive things that no negativity can seep in.
But, how to ward off the negative thoughts? Not easy for sure-. Your mind is a tiger that needs to be tamed, but not by chaining it to a stake in the ground. Tame it so that it roams in the high hills of positive thoughts, and not in the swamps of negativity.
To fill your mind with positivity, keep your dreams alive. Even after hundreds of failures, you must not stop dreaming. The dreamers have built this world, not the stiff and pragmatic realists.
And lastly, it is about courage. The courage is to get up when you are down and out. The courage is what you need when you are afraid. When asked whether a man can be brave when afraid, the three eyed raven Brandon Stark replied that a man can be brave only when he is afraid. The courage is what makes you ready to kick some ass in the morning even when you slept a defeated and tired man in the night. The courage is to forget yesterday’s failure and strive for winning today’s battle.
Be positive, be brave, and keep dreaming.
