Let's know the Negative...
We all know that there is tremendous happiness in being positive
and unhappiness in being negative. But we still make the mistake of
being negative while we encounter certain circumstances in our
life. This makes us lose our confidence.

Disadvantages of being negative:

Power of Positivity...
As a solution to get rid of negative Dadaji states,
Instead of wasting so much time trying to break the negative, why
not automatically join the positive right away?
Beat the negative through positive...
1.Always have confidence on self:
Dadashri says all the strengths already lie within us, but if one
says, "I will not be able to do this," then it will be so.
Dadashri also says, "As you imagine, so will you be." When you
yourself say, "My health is good," then you will feel better.
Likewise if you say, "I am not feeling well," then you will feel
worse. So you will become as you imagine.

Benefits of remaining Positive:
1.Positive thinking boosts our confidence.
2.It gives us peace of mind.

5.It enhances our physical health as well!
All in all, by speaking negatively about a good thing, it
will get ruined, and by speaking positively about a bad thing, it
will improve. Hence we should always speak positively. Our
dictionary should not have any negatives.
