True Freedom And Self Respect Is Necessary For Admirable Life And Future

Occasionally we forget how fortunate we are to have the freedom of choice: liberty to express our desires, choose our friends, clothes, religion, music, food, careers, partners..., while a significant part of our world is oblivious to the same. But are the rest of us really living a life of independence? Or does my mind suffocate at times with unproductive thinking? Can I select golden thoughts of positivity, inspiration, determination, love etc as I wish? True freedom and self-respect cannot be bestowed externally by God, fate or any human being. It begins with me liberating myself from unworthy thinking, thus empowering my words, actions and character for an admirable life and future.

Open Your Minds To A New Start !

A disappointment is never easy to surpass. I work hard towards a goal giving it all I have and still end up empty-handed. 'Where did I go wrong, what's the use of being diligent and conscientious? May be everything depends on luck, God didn't help me...' A vision that was initially strong and focused takes a sharp detour into the by-lanes of disheartened thinking. On the other hand, by looking at the situation with a calm, detached attitude, I can locate the faults or leakages. Even if my attempts were faultless, to refuse to learn from a set-back is a sign of ego. God helps me back on my feet when He sees that I haven't closed the doors of my mind to new experiences.

Intelligent Positive Thinking !

When my expectations for a task or another person are unfulfilled, I sometimes attribute it to my weaknesses or unworthiness. I may accept the disappointment and even forget the incident but sub-consciously allow it to hamper my self-respect. Ambitions or relationships are not appendages of my identity. They are vital in shaping my personality and taking me ahead, however I need to be prudent in not permitting them to distort how I see myself. Only my God knows me precisely for what I am and what I will be. With this faith and confidence, let me see every experience as a brick thrown towards me to build a strong foundation for my future.
