Look up with Optimism with a hope for the future !

Japan was attacked with nuclear weapons on its two cities i.e. Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Entire world had assumed that Japan will be wiped out of the growth map. But people of Japan were optimistic. Inspite of the massive attacks on their two cities, inspite of deaths of scores of persons, inspite of the large scale devastation due to the nuclear attacks, it still raised its spirits with optimism and with a hope for the future. And the outcome is that Japan now stands amongst the top most countries of the world. The citizens of Japan get visa on arrival and that too, anywhere in the world. Every organization feels proud if it has an employee from Japan. This happened because people of Japan who faced massive attacks on its soul, could come out of the trauma & could raise their mind with optimistic thoughts. In the same way, we must have the positive & optimistic thinking if we want to achieve success in our life.

One of my friend got a big shock of his life when he got the Doctors report that his father had prostate cancer. It was really shocking for the entire family. The PSA was over 4 and it should be with in 2 for any normal person. The biopsy was done & doctors advised the bone scan. Biopsy and  bone scan reports disclosed that the cancer had already reached the bones & already at the third stage. The family was shocked on finding that his life was limited to a maximum of 12 months.

The entire family was shattered on this disclosure. Even we were shocked as it was never ever assumed that a normal looking person could be in such a dangerous stage and that too due to cancer. They all decided to not to disclose about the disease to the patient. They requested doctors concerned to not to reveal the disease to the patient even though everyone knew that it was a LOST BATTLE.   31

Many doses of Chemotherapy were given to him at various hospitals but   they never told him about the disease to the patient. Even though his life was said to be of a maximum of 12 months, the family had already crossed more than two years. After almost three years, the patient came to know that he was suffering from cancer but he was told that it was just the initial stage & so there was nothing to worry. The situation further deteriorated and the Radiation started. The situation was really bad. They knew that they can’t do any more for him and after almost four & a half years he expired.

The crux is that even though they knew that it was the lost battle, that he had a maximum life of 12 months, they still looked up with optimism and with a great hope. The combined optimistic behaviour of the entire family extended his life by almost four times i.e. upto 54 months.

Truly speaking it happened in our own family & the patient was none other than my Grand father who expired in 2008. So I will just say that let whatever happen, if you are optimistic, if you have positive thoughts, you can always look upwards. Please log on to the website as it will teach you on how to look upwards in your life.
