95% okay, 5% yet to be
I know what all of you must be thinking looking at this picture. Wasn’t it the black mark?? 🙂 Certainly it was!!
Well, that is exactly how the human mind works. We tend to look only at the dark spot though the background or the bigger picture is white. I just realized how more than 95% of our life is okay or you could even call it perfect and it is just the 5% which is ‘not yet’ okay or perfect. Please note it does not mean it would never be fine, it only means it is yet to be fine. But what we are always bothered is about that 5%. Funny isn’t it?? We seem to forget that we have been extremely lucky to have got that 95% without any struggle. It has been simply gifted to us. Despite this gift, we make the 5% as an obstacle to enjoy the 95%. Yes, it is our doing.. We create the block in our minds. We make the minute look gigantic. A simple example: You have a wonderful family, awesome friends, good education, fantastic career, a happy relationship, but you are fat. So this one thing stops you from appreciating the rest of the great happenings in your life (If you think this example is an exaggeration, you are mistaken).
“Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.” – Norman Vincent Peale
If the 5% is ‘not yet’ okay, push it to the corner. Focus on the rest and make the 5% okay. It would not take us anywhere if we are going to look at only things which is not okay. Lets learn to enjoy the things which have already been gifted to us and with this strength let’s make those tiny bits okay. Always remember not everybody is as gifted and lucky as you are. Even though we think that we carry the entire world’s burden, given a choice we would not want to exchange our package with someone else.
Isn’t that true??
