Essay On Good Thoughts

We are often told to watch our thoughts or to change our thoughts so we can create what we want in life. I’ve often written here on this blog that I do, indeed, believe our thoughts are creative. I’ve also said that we can’t just think our way to manifesting what we want.

Yes, occasionally, we think something and almost magically, that which we want appears–especially if we attached a lot of positive feeling to that thought. Some might say this happens if we pray hard enough–if we put God in the picture.

In this case, we add in faith. We ask for God to play a role in our lives, to answer our prayers, to create miracles for us. Judaism calls this bittachon, or trust in God. The Hebrew word comes from the root that means, “to lean on,” and “to feel secure and safe or confident.”

Here’s the key, though. According to some Hebrew scholars bittachon has two components: active trust, which means you act but with faith, and passive trust, which means that God meets you halfway and helps you. I want to stress the first–active trust because I believe that when we think good thoughts and do good deeds–those that both support what we desire and support others in the process, we create good things, including those we desire. What that really means is that when we thing good thoughts with active faith God does, indeed, meet us halfway. This may not happen, however, if we only think good thoughts with passive trust.

I was thrilled recently to learn that the third Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch taught that what we think is what we get. As the story goes,  when one man asked Rabbi Mendel how to advise a man who was severely ill, the Rabbi said in Yiddish, “Tract gut, vet zain gut!” Translated, that means, “Think good and it will be good!”

I believe that The Rebbe didn’t mean for the man to simply think good thoughts alone. I’m sure he meant for him also to do good things to make himself well–and to do this with faith. (And if he had the ability to do good for others, too, even better.)

If you think good thoughts, and do good deeds–and have faith, it’s as if you are reaching up to God. And you find that God’s hand reaches down to meet you in miraculous ways. You create–or co-create–good things.

Positive thinking leads a man to success. One who thinks that he can achieve the things, will put his best to achieve, will not fetter by the problems in the path of success and one day he will win positively. Self confidence, determination, perseverance, and hard work are the key factors of success.

Every small or big, easy or complex problem have its solution. There is a way out of every labyrinth, there is an answer to every enigma. The only requirements are the confidence, hard work and determination and you get the answer.

Where there is a will, there is a way. If you find any problem, a typical one, don’t lose heart, go ahead and devote yourself fully, analyze each aspect, and get the problem solved. Every invention taken place so far, were riddled with many unfound answers, but the inventor’s zeal and perseverance found the solution and a new invention took place. For a confident person, the word ‘impossible’ is no where in his dictionary. A determined and dedicated person finds way in all complexities undaunted by the initial problems and failures he keeps on finding solution to every teaser and one day he achieves his cherished goal.

Dedication, devotion to the task and positive thinking with determination have been the important factors of success of every successful celebrity. Take the recent example Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, the widow of Prime Minister Rajeev Gandhi, participated and campaigned in the Lok Sabha election 2004, undaunted by the criticism, personal attacks and all kinds of perversities she went alone campaigning alone without having any other ‘Star’ campaigner, covered almost the whole of the country against the BJP and showed the world that congress got the majority.

She has shown her unflinching determination, unfettered self confidence, dedication and devotion to the cause without worrying for the results and she is the winner. Every Tom and dick had questioned her nationality, her foreign origin, but she cared a fig for all criticism and showed her caliber.

Life is a battle, one has to fight it fearlessly. Fight with confidence, positive attitude, right aptitude, with determined and concentrated efforts, leads to the surest path of success. Fortune is said to favor the brave. God also help those who help themselves. A coward, a pessimist dare not even to fight in the race, it is an optimist and determined soul, who dares to fight, has the chance of success.

A winner never quits and a quitter never wins shows that one who constantly tries to achieve something, one who endeavors hard incessantly to achieve something, he is the winner, later or sooner, but a quitter could never be a winner. When Vallabhbhai Patel told that’ Swaraj is my birth right’ so many people find it mere a slogan, but the incessant struggle put by all the freedom fighters supported the claim of Patel and we could win the freedom. Organizing the efforts properly, in right direction, striking at the opportune time, are essential for achieving a target. Optimism, determination, undaunted will power makes every impossible task possible.

Confidence is the most important key to success. It boosts the morale and creates determination to attain a goal. The loss of confidence makes a man pessimist, coward or a dead man. The importance of 'right deeds’ is well emphasized in Bhagwat Geeta: Lord Krishna tells Arjun to follow the path of righteousness, the path of dedication, Do Karma, don’t think about the result, the God is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, the results as per your deeds will follow. It should also be remembered that the positive and constructive thoughts which aims for the betterment of mankind are met with success. It should not be riddled with self aggrandizement evil thoughts never bear good results.

Your biggest assets are your enthusiasm that enriches with your positive thinking. Never lose hope, keep cheerful put the best possible efforts with your total involvement, have confidence in you and you are the winner.

Through positive thinking one can overcome the mountains. One who always think positively even in adverse circumstances wins. Positive thinking always pays. Life belongs to the ambitions.
