Positive attitude symbolises freshness and pleasantness while negative attitude reflects dryness and reservation. Be on good terms with yourself to spread positive vibes to induce fellow feeling and cooperation. The expansive quality of these vibes mysteriously transcends the confines of time and stays with us for a long time.

A senior citizen's club has this motto: Do something daily for which at least one person looks forward to get up next morning. The idea is to develop positive attitude in its members. The beneficiary naturally responds to the good action and the circle of positivity gets a boost.

In clubs and gatherings, we see persons with positive vibes clustered by their friends and admirers. This admirable trait not only brings them social acceptance but also success in their other ventures.

I recall my going to an outstation college on my first posting. It was a Saturday and the principal - an elderly gentleman - was just going out as the following two days were holidays. On being informed, he returned to his office.

After a brief casual conversation, he promptly signed my joining report and informed me about the following two holidays. His positive vibes impacted me pleasantly. Really what else can evoke spontaneous cooperation and loyalty from colleagues and friends than positive vibes.

An old sage was narrating a tale to his disciples about a battle of two wolves living inside people. One is vicious, angry and arrogant. The other is harmless, good and peace-loving.

When asked which one wins, he whispered, "The one you feed". It is akin to saying that both Rama and Ravana dwell in us. The one we support is the winner.

Positive vibes enrich our life. It creates a bond, cohesion and a feeling of relatedness. Positive attitude brings people out of their cocoons and enables them to easily gel with others.

Without positive attitude one is playing the ball of life without air in it!
