Power of positive thinking and positive dreaming!

Time and again the need to think positively has been emphasized at all fora.It is indeed extremely helpful in crafting of the mission and ensuring the chalked out activities in the most effective manner.

Imagined blocks,obstructionist mindsets and majority of the impediments are taken care of by the same and they all those hurdles just wither away before the strong and positive influence driving the endeavours..

Seemingly impossible tasks are converted to feasible and then to cost -effective do-ables through that approach relying heavily on the out-of-the-box thinking (say creative utilization of available funds/provisions).

I would like to iterate that the moment we start visualizing a thing it becomes a reality.

Many of us would remember the day we actually started driving a vehicle/riding a bicycle was indeed preceded by a dream in which we were doing the same.

Visualize,dream,plan and act!!!

"If your energy is as boundless as your ambition, total commitment may be a way of life you should seriously consider." -- Joyce Brothers .

Let us make "total commitment" to all socially useful pursuits a way of life

Our dreams,our vision and subsequent actions are based on the thoughts that we carry.

Dreams can move mountains, if we act on them.

Positive thoughts engender appropriate action .

Happy dreaming ,happy planning,happy working and happy growing together!

A dream!!!

You know a dream is like a river,

ever changing as it flows.

And a dreamer's just a vessel that must follow where it goes.

Trying to learn from what's behind you and never knowing what's in store

makes each day a constant battle just to stay between the shores.

And I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.

Like a bird upon the wind, these waters are my sky.

I'll never reach my destination if I never try,

So I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.

Too many times we stand aside and let the water slip away.

To what we put off 'til tomorrow has now become today.

So don't you sit upon the shore and say you're satisfied.

Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tides.

Wow that is indeed very interesting!You all have already provided a structure and developed it as a tool.
It is just wonderful to see the theoretical and at times a bit vague thoughts as a definite and tangible part of a very important process.
Thanks a lot for enlightening me on that.
Regards and best wishes,

Dear Rajesh, the dream certainly is a powerful tool as well as the positive thinking, appreciative inquiry and many others. The mere fact of eliciting the positive elements in a community has amazing effects (in contrast to directly start from 'needs-based analysis' or 'drawing problem trees' on a first visit). This brings the energy level down straight away. I always imagine a group of strange people/ NGO coming into my own village in the Netherlands. How would I feel if they would do this and that...

As you can read on our site, the first step in the 'AIDS Competence Process' in 'building the dream' within the community. I have one question for all of us based upon especially my experience in Papua New Guinea. How can we ensure that dreams are not 'air castles' and "are firmly grounded to the earth with realistic perceptions being the strings as strengthend by our commitment and zeal to pursue them." as you state in your answer above? As a facilitator, I do not want to interfere with anybody's dream, but perhaps we have experiences to share on facilitating the dream. Also look at the current forum topic on building the dream.

Dr. Rajesh - I do agree with you and thank you for bringing this precious fact of life again about positive visions, dreams, planning and actions. We should all have a dream before the pathway to achieving the dream commence.

Thanking you for this wonderful sharing.

Only those who truly love and who are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell in your own enchantment. Life throws stones at you, but your love and your dream change those stones into the flowers of discovery. People like you enrich the dreams of the worlds, and it is dreams that create history. People like you are unknowing transformers of things, protected by your own fairy-tale, by love. -Ben Okri

Dear Laurence,

Thanks for your 'comment'.There have been umpteen occasions in my life and in the lives of my friends/members of the family where visualization and imagery have been followed by actual happening of the visualized scenario.

All that,however,happened only after one worked for it when the 'wishful thinking' had been strongly rooted to the ground.

We can definitely build castles(or houses )in the air but the castles have to be firmly grounded to the earth with realistic perceptions being the strings as strengthend by our commitment and zeal to pursue them.

As a young adolescent/school student I was taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS),New Delhi by my uncle just to show what the best medical school of India looks like.The fact that only 35 students are selected after a tough national level competition clearly established the difficulty of getting admission to the prestigious institution.

That was the time I visualized myself as an MBBS student of the AIIMS when I saw some undergraduate walking towards the lecture thetres in thier white aprons..

A couple of yearsl ater when I appeared in Medical Entrance examinations ,I was confident of being selected at JIPMER,Pondichery of the Government of India (though it had only 27 seats open to general competition),but wasa bit doubtful about selection at the AIIMS as the question papers had been very tough in the entrance examination with a large number of aspirants.

The visualized scenario however beacame a reality and in the following months I was walking in the premises putting on my white coat the way I had seen a few of my 'seniors' some time back.

I think besides other things,my father's words "there is always a vacancy at the top" have helped me in my myriad academic and professional pursuits.

Sorry for all that bragging,but your message brought it all spontaneously as had never been expressed so candidly before.

Best wishes ,

Dear Dr. Gopal,

Thanks a lot for this positive message. I'm wondering: can you give us an example of a moment in your life where you actually experienced that what you visualized became true?

I strongly believe that we can reach any dream, we can do anything if we strongly believe in it. If you set intentions for your day, most of them will come true as well and you will attract the right people and events...

Best regards,
