“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.” George R.R. Martin
The books , I want to read which i collect them from last 4 years but because of busy schedule of my Engineering and M.Tech studies I didn’t get time to read the book from by bucket list . The list of book , I collected are follow :
- 7 habits of Highly effective people by Stephen R. Covey.
- The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz.
- Last lecture by Jeffrey Zaslow and Randy Pausch.
- The 48 laws of Power by Robert Greene.
But In 2020 , because of Covid-19 lockdown , there are lot of time available to invest in our habits which we didn’t get in day to day life busy schedule. In Maharashtra , India , there are lockdown since from 24 march 2020 .India’s government announced lockdown in India till 31 May 2020. Because of Covid-19 panademic lockdown , Indian Television channel re-telecast their 1988’s show Mahabharat and Ramayan which got record break viewers and huge fan following in the 2020.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.Dr. Seuss
The books are our best friend , they never leave us in any situation . Sometimes , they perform different role in our life . Books are our teacher , our mentor , our friends . Anytime if you want them with you they are available to you. If we develop reading habit in day-to -day life then after 5 years of reading we are different person . Books develop us tremendously .
Traveling is also one of my bucket list but in 2020 its doesn’t seen easy to travel around state and country. Because of Covid-19 pandemic , The 2020 is worst year for traveler. but the best thing about the books are they let you travel without moving your feet. So the more you read , the more information you get and more knowledgeable you became.
Every problem can be solved and solved right if you pray.Dr. Norman Vincent Peale (Book author of The Power of Positive Thinking)
Now it’s June 2020 and Covid-19 pandemic lock down continues in India . We have to stay in home and cooperate with the Maharashtra Government which is fighting with this Pandemic. In this fight of Covid-19 , the enemy is disappeared , we not see the enemy (virus). Still there is no correct medicine is available to treat this virus So We have only one option available is lock down . Researcher start finding the medicine till we have one option which is Try Prayer Power . We have to pray for our self , we have to pray for our state , we have to pray for our country and we have to pray for save the world as best as possible.So we have to stay home , and we got lot of time .
I used this time to complete my reading bucket list . In last week , i started reading one book which is The power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. In this book , there is one chapter which named as Try Prayer Power. This chapter impressed me a lot . The author of this book describe it amazingly. There are some points I noted while reading which I share here .
The author say that ” You can’t get a man physically healthy until you get him spiritually healthy”.
A famous psychologist says , “Prayer is the greatest power available to the individual in solving his personal problem. Its power astonishes me”
The Prayer power seems able even to normalize the aging process , obviating or limiting infirmity and deterioration.
Prayer can freshen you up every evening and send you out renewed each morning.You can receive guidance in problem is allowed to permeate your subconscious , the seat of the forces which determine weather you take right or wrong action.
Prayer has the power to keep your reactions correct and sound. Prayer driven deeply into your subconscious can remake you.
Every experience in life , everything with we have come in contact in life , is a chisel , which has been cutting away at our life statue. So choose the environment that will best develop you towards your objective.
Environment is your mind food. The kind of mind food we consume determines our habits , attitudes , personality. The mind reflects what its environment feeds it just as surely as the body reflects the food you feed it.
Each of us inherited a certain capacity to develop. But how much of that capacity we have developed and the way we have developed that capacity depends on the kind of mind food we’ve been fed.
Environment shapes us , makes us think the way we do . Make it Well.
Researcher agree that the person you are today , your personality , ambition , present status in life , are largely the result of your psychological environment.
Your future environment decides what kind of person you will be one , five , ten , twenty years from now.You will change over the months and years but how you will change depends on your future environment , the mind food you fed yourself .
