Power of Positive Thinking

There is always the positivity or negativity of every condition. But its every guru’s choice. One day, I go out with a colleague to a restaurant, I was embarrassed soon after our order for a juice drink arrives with a relative space to fill. he said, “this glass is half empty”! No I yelled at him saying it is half full!!!! And, I asked, why do you always think negative?

From Jerry’s Story, Let me Frame an Inspirational Piece for you

We learn several Lessons!
1. We live the choice to live fully!
2. Take charge of your attitudes for its being in-charge of everything thru your life!
3. Before you, always lies two choices(+ve or -ve) your choice matters dia
4. For the creator says “This day, I put before you Life and death”
5. etc

I call him my hero! Jerry was the kind of guy who always lived good moods and a positive life even in his speeches. Whenever asked how he feels, “If I were any better, I’d be stylish”.

He was a restaurant manager whose life regard was positive attitude towards everything and everyone. This definitely answers the question; why do your colleagues resign their jobs and leave with you? Naturally was a motivator. In case a workmate had a bad day, Jerry intervened to engage them on how to gather focus for positive attitude to the status quo.

Even, you, meeting a person like Jerry, I guess, already is your friend. He was a guy of a kind that would be positive all the time. Whenever asked how he does it, Jerry replied simply that; “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, Jerry, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad one.” but always chose to be in a good mood. And so applied to bad situations where he chose to learn from them rather than being a victim of fate. Even if complaints would come his way, it would ether be accepting them or forking out the positive side of life.

It never sounds easy though, to each of us, isn’t it?

I remember in the story, that life is all about choices. “When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice” it stated. But reaction to situations is what matters. If they are people that affect your mood. Its a multifaceted choice of good or bad mood. Its your choice to live life as a take away here.

One day, one of his comrades who had left the restaurant industry to his own business eavesdropped that Jerry probably forgot to lock the back door of the restaurant and was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers. And as he rashes to the safe with his hands shaking, slipped off the combination. With all panic, robbers shot him and took off. Luckily, Jerry was found right there and rushed into the emergency center. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, by his discharge, he had fragments of the bullets still in his body. It was six months after the accident. And when asked of how he was, he replied, not different from the past “If I were any better, I’d be stylish. Wanna see my scars he added?”

It was not a free pass to see scars of course! I would get thrilled but rather got him to task of narrating about what went through his mind as the robbery was on. “thinking to himself, I should have locked the back door ” Jerry answered “and while laying on the floor, he remembered two choices he had to make: Choosing to live, or die. But of course was positive to life.”

With several questions at a time, he yelled the paramedics were great as they kept telling me, was going to be fine. Though their facial expressions to the emergency room got me entangled into fear. In their eyes, I read, ‘He’s a dead man.’ but knew I needed to take action.”

Notwithstanding the interview, what did you do?
Jerry knew he had to influence doctors though. He drastically took his destiny into his own hands.

Suddenly some nurse also asked whether he was allergic to anything, as doctors and nurses pose, waiting to hear my reply,

he took a deep breath and yelled, “Bullets!”they all bust out laughing, he said, “I choose to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead, see you when I wake up, thank you.”

Surprisingly, Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.
