My boss is a sheer negative man and he can’t think of positive things even for an hour. He is one of the most negative men I have met in my life. He lives in the fear that something bad will happen right now. He is not able to take any decision of his own and in time. He delays every decision and wait for the last moment to complete everything.
My Boss: “Today, I have saw fish bone in my dream, my day is going to be awful today.” He shredded his head.
Me: I said, no it can’t be so sir, be positive because a dream is a dream. It doesn’t have some special meaning. But he looked at me with disapproved eyes.
He is the man with a ring of luck in every finger of his both hand. Something queer is present in his defeatist look. Therefore I did not expect that he is going to listen to me or anyone. So, I tried to forget about his remark and carry on my duty.
My Boss: “Patar, you did not wrote this.” He said to me in a voice that this time he got me.
I looked at the document carefully and found that it is already done. So I corrected him. He only uttered a small huh.
The half of the day he would try to bring out fault in my work and everytime I corrected him as it was not my fault. At 12.30 pm his boss called him. He went to his boss after uttering f**k off several times as he already believed that everything is going to be horrible.
Me: What is the matter sir?
Boss: “The idiot said that his passbook is wrongly delivered to me. He is a pervert and crook. I have not even opened the cheque book yet which was delivered to me therefore thought that it was for me.” Now I am going to bring the cheque book from home and patar, look after the office carefully.
He drove the car and went to home which is situated on 20 minutes of driving time. But he didn’t came after an hour passed instead my phone rang.
Strangely enough my boss was on the line. “Patar, I have met an accident while driving to home. Though it is minor but now I am in the hospital and I think it is because of the dream of fish bones. Didn’t I told you that it is very unlucky?”
But I remained positive at least try hard to. Especially after reading the life changing book “THE POWER of POSITIVE THINKING” by NORMAN VINCENT PEALE. I tried to stay calm in the every situation and to be positive, always. One of my colleague try to insult , jest me for several times. Especially I didn’t liked his tone as it was full of self proud and insulting. But I kept my calm and peace of mind. I gently talk to him, try to be good with him with lower voice and show lots of enthusiasm to his views. As I became more composed and confident because of the positive thinkings he left his arrogance. Slowly he begins to show respect to me in return of my respect.
I am neither a big preacher of positive thinking and nor a big success for being positive. But my small life circle and its surrounding seems to me very positive when I am positive myself. Try it yourself guys and feel it and then tell me, does it works?
