Our thoughts affect our lives.

I was away attending a convention which lasted three days. Without persuasion from my little darling, I might not have registered for such lengthy program. Sometimes the older we get, the more we need to be kicked at the back before we are willing to move and to learn again.

One interesting idea I gained from one session conducted by a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) trainer who talked on Psychology. He said, our human mind has 75000 thoughts translated each day. Seventy five percent of them are the negative one. The minute we get up in the morning, we would be looking at our face. How many would actually smile and feel proud of themselves. Some don't like their look, they dislike their noise or the eyes, or they don't feel good of their body shape. All these are negative thoughts which are translated into their system. Without them realising, it affects and influences their productivity of the day. Although these are only simple thoughts in the morning, they distract our thinking and confidence of oneself. The more negative thoughts that follow later, the more inefficiencies will occur for the person.

With this statement from this NLP trainer, I believe women out-beat men in term of thought translation per day. Women love to see their face and body. They are proud to look at their faces and they spend much time to beautify their clothing. Compare to men, we dislike to waste time on facial and dressing. In the public toilets, I seldom see men smiling at their faces. I wonder whether they are scared to look at themselves seriously. Not the ladies! They even carry a small mirror in their handbags whenever they feel like it.

Now I know, why women are doing much better than men. In the corporate world, they are excelling and in the marketing & sales, they are at bar with us. The reason is, they smile and love themselves more than men do. For the gentlemen, please spend more time on your face and smile to love yourself more. The positive thoughts will strengthen your confidence gradually.

A simple line from another little darling of only 13 of age; "Where there is a will, there is a way" - Tesh.
