AN EMPOWERMENT NGO
My tryst with ‘Positive Thinking’ and its seeming power over one’s life, started when, as a young Captain in the Indian Army, I was posted to a terrorism- afflicted border of the country. Nothing seemed right. Here I was, thousands of miles away from my wife and my newborn child, whom I had hardly seen; still recovering from losing my parents early and within span of six months, as also, facing tense situations at the border and to add to my woes, facing health problems myself! I felt I was a victim of the infamous Murphy’s Law– “If Something Can Go Wrong, It Will”. This continued until, one day, a fellow Officer introduced me to a book on ‘Positive Thinking’. Though I was skeptical initially, I tried to inculcate some of the things which the book suggested and with time, I was actually able to bring about a change in my perception of situations, which in turn helped me to steer my thoughts away from negativism and move towards positivism.
