Being jobless for the last three months I am depressed now a days. My son has lost his admission from a good school and he might have to go to a less qualitative school. I have moved from a spacious apartment to a lesser apartment in order to reduce my living expenses. My wife has built extra stress. On top of that my father in law has died a week ago which has added fuel to fire, putting our family in more miserable state. And now I have met an accident too!!!
In these circumstances I have two mental choices; either to feel depressed and keep thinking about my complications, losing my peace of mind and impacting my family life, OR replace my negative thoughts with 7 super mental powers about self confidence, positivity, consistency, courage, and implosiveness and keep applying for new jobs with positive momentum.
I choose the second option because I believe that that the pain I am undergoing today will empower my character. My strengths will then boost my confidence and make me a successful man one day. I understand that time does not stop and does not remain the same. I understand that good and bad phases are part of the package called life. While good times make me happy; bad times strengthen the 'inner' me. I don't really know how much time it would take to regain my blessings and I don't know the logic on why God has put me in this exam, however I believe in the quote which says that God takes men into deep waters not to drown them but to cleanse them. Although my mind cannot fathom the wisdom behind God's decision but I truly believe in His decisions. I also believe in the four spiritual powers; one of them says that whatever is happening is the best thing that could have happened.
After two months:
By the grace of God, I have landed on a job which is very exciting, full of professional exposure and offers a nice salary. Time has healed my wife's mental stress due to the death of her father although such kind of demise loss is irreplaceable. My son and daughter have gotten admission in a good school because the admissions for new academic year were still open!
Overall commentary on this episode of life is that time does not stop and does not remain the same. A person needs to have the resilient approach towards life, such that he does not lose his focus from pursuit of happiness, and consistently keep applying the great principles of life such as honesty, hard work, and positive life approach.
Now that I am back on the track of normal life so I can confidently state that the most important things which helped me fight crisis were my consistent trait of patience, firm belief in God, and positive attitude towards life applying 7 super mental powers all the times. So, while I wish you all the best life can offer you, I would highly recommend demonstrate the same approach towards life in case you are trapped in any of such situations.
Once again, I wish you all the best!
