Positive Attitude and It’s benefits

Alright.. So time to move on to a topic of our daily choice. It’s only a choice(a free choice) and it’s befenits are simply countless. Well, we’re going to discuss on positive attitude..

The idea about me writing on positive attitude came from a declamation contest that was held in my school. It was inter-class(XII standard) contest and 20 students(out of about 250) participated. I, too, participated.. and well! I’m no good speaker.. and I was settled at the 4th position. Maybe, because I crossed the alloted time for speaking which was just 5 minutes.

Here it goes:

When our attitude is right, we realise that we are walking on acres and acres of diamonds. Opportunity is right under our feet. And! All we have to do is to recognise it.

Good Morning Everyone

Respected Sir Principal, Honorable Teachers, Worthy judges and Yes! Ofcourse.. All my dear friends! Today, I, Kamalpreet Singh, a scholar of class XII-D is standing in front of you all to speak on “Positive Attitude and it’s Benefits”.

So, What’s attitude? As my pocket oxford dictionary defines it, attitude! Is a way.. of talking, thinking and behaving! However! I believe it’s significance in our lives is much more than that. Our attitude itself is our way of life.

Friends, as you see, we have a choice.. a choice everyday! Regarding the attitude we hold for that day. And as they say the only difference between a good day and a bad day is our attitude.

Friends, we cannot change our past.. Seriously! We cannot change it. We cannot change the way certain people think.. I can’t change the way this guy might be thinking about me right now.. yeah? We cannot change what’s inevitable. So, what can we actually change? To feel better in certain situations? The answer is our Attitude! Yea! Our attitude!…

Let me give you an example of my friend who is a good badminton player(I was referring to myself though) often going for various matches. We all know that one cannot win everytime, and losing.. Is a harsh feeling, of course. So, what does he do when he loses a crucial match? Does he cry? No..! Does he become upset and reclusive? No..!

Instead.. He inspires himself that he’ll work harder and improve his skill, so that, he performs better next time and wins. And this is how, his positive attitude, helps him in overcoming problems and coping up with stress easily.

So, our attitude determines outcomes. And, this truth, is accepted by most successful people of the world; whether it be a doctor going for an extremely difficult surgery or a businessman launching a new project. It is the correct attitude which gives them the winning edge.

Let’s see… the industrialists, the big business houses.. they often set up huge plants and invest in new projects. The mobile companies, like samsung, introduce new smartphones every other week. The television channels, like Zee TV, air new serials like Jamai Raja, Neeli Chattri Waale, etc every other day.. And, all this happens with a positive attitude.

Just Imagine, what would have happened..If those incustrialists, fearing losses would have never set up new plants and invested in new projects? Then, centainly my friends, Mr.Ambani would have never become such a multi-billionaire.

Or what if? Our favourite Kapil Sharma, fearing low response from the audience, never worked in Comedy Nights with Kapil? Then, he too would have missed the chance to become so much popular and have a huge fan following.

So, when people hold such negative attitudes they restrict themselves.. They lose the opportunity to achieve something! So, a correct attitude, or a positive attitude, is a key to success.

Our attitude also reflects our behaviour. One’s attitude towards the other determines the other’s attitude towards him. For example, if we smile at someone the other person might also smile back and vice versa…

In a nutshell.. A positive attitude helps in overcoming our problems easily, coping up with stress, is a key to success and helps in maintaining healthy human relationships.

So, cultivating a positive attitude is like ploughing a field…It takes time.. It has to grow from within..Inspiration is what gets a man started..Motivation is what keeps him on track..And It’s positive attitude which makes it all automatic..

Thank You! And adopt a positive outlook towards life!

After that I was asked a question..

Question: Does positive attitude ensure success?

My answer was:

Success is a matter of personal opinion and conception.. It depends on what we understand as being successful(most often it’s one’s goal). Positive attitude alone is not enough to bring success(as per the person’s definition of success) but it surely is a necessary ingredient in one’s success recipe along with hard work and determination.

Power of Language: The wise Sage

Language does have the power to change reality. Therefore, treat your words as the mighty instruments they are – to heal, to bring into being, to nurture, to cherish, to bless, to forgive.” – Daphne Rose Kingma

Once upon a time there was a sage who wandered the countryside. One day, as he passed near a village, he was approached by a woman who told him about a sick child nearby. She ask for his help. 

So the sage came to the village, and a crowd gathered around him, as such a man was a rare sight. One woman brought the sick child to him, and he said a prayer for the child.

A man yelled from the crowed,”Do you really think your prayer will help her, when medicine has failed?” 

The sage said,”You know nothing of such things! You are a stupid fool!”

The man became very angry with these words and his face grew hot and red. He was about to strike out, when the sage walked over to him and said: “If one word has such power as to make you so angry and hot, may not another have the power to heal?” 

And thus, the sage healed two people that day.

You my Boy!

You! Be my son so strong,

Don’t engage in anything wrong,

Work right and work hard,

Immorality you must discard,

When you see something not just,

Don’t just watch but fight with thrust.

Long lived aren’t those which have long age,

They’re those who use sword as a sage.

Determination: Very Important Quality to Possess!

From the angle of my eye,

I am going to touch the sky,

My thoughts have no limit,

Everything is possible whatever be it!

 

It is not in the lines on my hand,

It is in my actions and my stand,

As it has been well-said,

By those who have led,

 

Luck also stays with their nation,

Who have in them the deadly determination.”

 

Hope you liked it. 🙂
