"A fair amount of caution is sensible. Only a fool would be without it. But to listen to one's fears when seeking guidance is quite another matter. Consider cautiously, but take counsel from your beliefs, not your fears – and you will average out a lot better in life"
I am a practicing Muslim (Alhamdulillah) and believe that this universe and life is all a creation of Almighty Allah. Allah has created everything to acute perfection – so like the clock work of moon and sun, night and day, the changing weathers and times, did he also put our destinations in action? Islam talks about hope and faith - pillars of optimism. In fact “hopelessness” is considered a grave sin. And hopelessness is a direct outcome of lack of faith – but how does one decipher the limit of hope to the point of becoming ignorant to reality?
I do believe in the theory of brain power molding our lives in a positive or negative manner. Look around you and observe how people survive in various situations, what makes them survive? Don’t we all have the same biological structures? Then how come some people survive in extreme physical conditions and others can’t sustain even the slightest of difficulty?
“The more I see people the more I’m impressed by their astounding ability to meet tough situations. And their ability to rebound is fantastic. There is a built in comeback power in you that should never be underestimated”
In my opinion the only thing that differs from person to person is the brain – the organ that regulates all actions and reactions, the organ that works on learned behavior and the only organ that has the power to differentiate from right and wrong. Ever heard a phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”? This simply shows diversity which is a direct outcome of differing brain activity, which is made of experiences and life’s happenings and ultimately our reactions to them.
So think positive! Stay hopeful, stay happy and keep strong faith – I tell you ones who believe are the ones who can and the ones who will!
"whether you think you can or you think you can't - you are right!"
