Think Rational and Think Positive

Everyone tells to “Think Positive” and to “Have Hope“. If everyone already knows, then why am I writing this article and most importantly “why are you wasting your time?”. Well! read at your own risk…

Problems in Life Require a Solution:

If you have a problem, then you must look for its solution. To find an effective solution you’ll need to think properly and for that a good mental state becomes mandatory. To attain a good state-of-mind you will require to relax and calm down. The things like anger, stress, excitement, or any other kind of mental-unease will do no good.

* Remember that there is no substitute to a relaxed & stable mind when it comes about planning.

Emotional Aspect:

Nobody desires trouble in life, but everyone has some or the other problem to deal with. These troubles create a mental unease.

For sure our emotions guide us. To which path they lead; depends on the situation as well as on the nature of emotion itself. In other words it can be said that emotions interfere with our way of thinking either in positive or in negative manner.

To deal with any problem you will require eliminating the mental unease and get yourself into a calm & relaxed state of mind. Bigger the problem, greater will be the pain. Greater the pain, more important it becomes to think positive and to stay calm.

Yes! Positive thoughts can be of great help in eliminating the mental pain. This is the reason why every motivational speaker talks about ‘Positive Attitude’ from time to time.

Be Realistic and Be Rational:

When figuring out a solution, you must do it without or with minimal emotional interference. Just be rational!

This approach helps you in identifying “what’s really important?” and “what the reality is?”. On the other hand a person under influence of his emotions might overlook something important. A man must be smart enough to differentiate between emotional guidance and emotional interference.

Positive Thinking under Scrutiny:

Positive thinking is one of the highly recommended stuffs. It will help you in entering correct mindset, but you must never overdo it. Also, positive thinking should be considered as a tool for finding solutions and not for making excuses.


Your priority must be to find a good solution and implement it. A few people prioritize on bending facts under disguise of positive-thinking just to feel good or to frame an excuse.

Finally, no matter you add or remove emotions, your plans and decisions must be rational and reasonable.

Chanakya said  ” दुःसाध्यमपि सुसाधयं करोत्युपायज्ञाः ” i.e.  “One who knows the solution turns difficult into easy”. It’s time!

      Your concern is right, but quoting examples will narrow down the whole approach.
      Lives of people are different from one another. Also, life is not as it seems in books or movie where all attributes are predefined.

      You must appreciate the wholeness of life.

    The article is good but it would become difficult to implement

    How to come to know the that we are going towards a good solution or trying to bend facts … Is there any way to differentiate them


    This is right thing that we should think rational but this quotation cant be explain with a single view, i also read the quotation that wise men have no enemies and complete elaboration of that quota also,
    so think rational can be only possible when a man deal with the problems wisely and emotionlessly.

      The good part is that you acknowledge your problem. You know what to do?
