Motivation of The Day : " Kekuatan Berpikir Positif "

Suatu ketika seorang pria menelepon Norman Vincent Peale. Ia tampak sedih. Tidak ada lagi yang dimilikinya dalam hidup ini. Norman mengundang pria itu untuk datang ke kantornya. "Semuanya telah hilang.
Tak ada harapan lagi," kata pria itu. "Aku sekarang hidup dalam kegelapan yang amat dalam. Aku telah kehilangan hidup ini. Norman Vincent Peale, penulis buku "The Power of Positive Thinking", tersenyum penuh simpati. "
Mari kita pelajari keadaan anda," katanya Norman dengan lembut. Pada selembar kertas ia menggambar sebuah garis lurus dari atas ke bawah tepat di tengah-tengah halaman. Ia menyarankan agar pada kolom kiri pria itu menuliskan apa-apa yang telah hilang dari hidupnya. Sedangkan pada kolom kanan, ia menulis apa-apa yang masih tersisa. "Kita tak perlu mengisi kolom sebelah kanan," kata pria itu tetap dalam kesedihan.
"Aku sudah tak punya apa-apa lagi." "Lalu kapan kau bercerai dari istrimu?" tanya Norman . "Hei, apa maksudmu? Aku tidak bercerai dari istriku. Ia amat mencintaiku!" "Kalau begitu bagus sekali," sahut Norman penuh antusias. "Mari kita catat itu sebagai nomor satu di kolom sebelah kanan "Istri yang amat mencintai".
Nah, sekarang kapan anakmu itu masuk penjara?" "Anda ini konyol sekali. Tak ada anakku yang masuk penjara!" "Bagus! Itu nomor dua untuk kolom sebelah kanan "Anak-anak tidak berada dalam penjara." kata Norman sambil menuliskannya di atas kertas tadi.Setelah beberapa pertanyaan dengan nada yang serupa, akhirnya pria itu menangkap apa maksud Norman dan tertawa pada diri sendiri.
"Menggelikan sekali. Betapa segala sesuatunya berubah ketika kita berpikir dengan cara seperti itu," katanya.Kata orang bijak, bagi hati yang sedih lagu yang riang pun terdengar memilukan. Sedangkan orang bijak lain berkata, sekali pikiran negatif terlintas di pikiran, duniapun akan terjungkir balik....... Maka mulailah hari dengan selalu berfikir positif.....Norman Vincent

Motivated

Cara memulai adalah dengan berhenti berbicara dan mulai melakukan. The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. ~ Walt Disney, Niat adalah ukuran dalam menilai benarnya suatu perbuatan, oleh karenanya, ketika niatnya benar, maka perbuatan itu benar, dan jika niatnya buruk, maka perbuatan itu buruk. ~ Imam An Nawaw, Motivasi itu seperti mandi; kalau Anda berhenti melakukannya maka Anda akan "melempem" lagi, sama seperti Anda akan bau lagi bila berhenti mandi. ~ Z ig Ziglar ~ , Successful people live well, laugh often, and love much. They've filled a niche and accomplished tasks so as to leave the world better than they found it, while looking for the best in others, and giving the best they have. , It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. , There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in - that we do it to God, and that's why we try to do it as beautifully as possible. , Life is a promise; fulfill it, If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. , Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success. , Be what it is that you are seeking. , Every new day is an opportunity to balance the sheet; a new opportunity to put your act right! Thank God for every new day, rather than just for Friday., There is no such thing in anyone's life as an unimportant day. ,What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything? , It's what you learn after you think you know it all that makes a difference. , The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing. , We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations. , You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. , Those who wait to do a great deal of good at once will never do anything. Life is made up of little things. True greatness consists in being great in the little things. , Great lives are the culmination of great thoughts followed by great actions. , There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.,
