" No matter how much Science and Technology advances, it is IMPOSSIBLE to determine how two person perceives a particular situation. Each has its own "Point Of View". So what makes you think from negative perspective? Remember there are billions living on this earth and each & everyone has its own peculiar way of thinking. So from this day on, no, from this very moment on...view everything from a positive perspective, no matter how others present the situation to you. Remember, it's their Point Of View and you have a MIND of your OWN and never sacrifice your DREAM because others lack YOUR PERSPECTIVE to see things. You are the Universe; everything you want, ask to yourself."
--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Ali Asgar Nagaria --- Maharashtra, India
I hope this message encourages whoever reads it, to lead a life from a Positive Point Of View, no matter what the situation. It is the first thing that comes in my MIND when I wake up in the morning and the last thing to remember when I sleep at night.

" The more energy you expend on worrying about events that have already happened, the less chance you will have for molding the nature of today's and tomorrow's events. If a memory from the past brings you angst, do not dwell on it but move on. Always be optimistic and concerned with the future, not the past, and be prepared to let go of yesterday's dream to live out today's vision."
