In this first post based on Robin Sharma’s book , I would like to present before you the concept of “Opposition Thinking”.
The concept of Opposition Thinking is as follows :
“Anyone can create a positive , creative mindset within a short period. The process is straightforward. When an undesirable thought occupies the focal point of your mind,immediately replac it with a uplifting one”.
I tried to explain this concept with the below given example. Hope it helps 🙂
If you are angry with a tiny act of your Boss or collegue. As we know that at any point of time mind enterains only single type of thought, make use of this quality of mind. Try to divert the anger you have on your Boss or collegue by the method of Opposition thinking. Forcibilly think some positive thought about the person whom you are angry with. Try to recollect the time or incident in which they helped you, gave you some valuable suggestion or something like that. So when you build on these positive thoughts you will no longer have much time and thought for the anger you got earlier. Try to apply this principle of Opposition Thinking in every relationship of yours. It definetly brings positive changes in your life 🙂 and won’t you be in the path of happiness when you control your anger and negative feelings 😉
By the way, you can read about this concept of “Opposition Thinking” in a detailed manner in seventh chapter of the book “The Monk who sold ferrari”.
Happy Reading 🙂
