Once in a telecommunication company worked a guy Michael. He was the kind of guy who always used to be in good mood. He was like natural motivator. He was always there there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
One day one of the co-employee Sam went up to him and asked him, “How do you do it?? How can you be so positive all the time??”
Michael replied, “Each morning when i wake up.. i say to myself..
You have two choices today.. You can chose to be in Good mood today or Bad mood.. I chose Good mood..
Whenever something bad happen i ask myself.. Either you can chose to be a victim or can learn something from it.. I chose to Learn..
Every time someone comes complaining to me.. I have choice to accept complaint or i can point out positive side of life.. I chose positive side of life..”
Sam replied, “It’s not as easy as you say.”
Michael continued and said, “Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live your life.”
Sam left company and they never met again. Several years later Sam came to know about serious accident happened to Michael. Michael fell from a 60 feet high communication tower and was injured badly. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital.
After a year of accident Sam got chance to meet Michael. When he met Michael he asked him about his health and well being.
After this Sam asked him, “What was going on in your mind as the accident took place??”
Michael replied, “Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live.. or I could choose to die.. I chose to live..”
Sam asked, “Weren’t you scared?”
Michael replied, “When i saw expression of doctors i was really scared. In their eyes i could see — “He’s a dead man”. Then i knew i had to do something.
One of nurses came asked if i were allergic to anything and i said yes.. Then all doctor and nurses stopped waiting for my reply..
I took a deep breath and yelled, “Gravity..”.
Over their laughter, I told them, Ï am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.”
Every day we have the choice to live fully. We should Understand the Effect of keeping a Positive Attitude in Life. Each day has enough trouble of its own. It’s our Choice how we React to Situation and Live.
