Importance of Positive Attitude in Life | Short Stories

Once in a telecommunication company worked a guy Michael. He was the kind of guy who always used to be in good mood. He was like a natural motivator. He was always there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

One day one of the co-employees Sam went up to him and asked him, “How do you do it?? How can you be so positive all the time??”

Michael replied, “Each morning when I wake up. I say to myself.
You have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood today or a bad mood. I choose good mood.
Whenever something bad happens I ask myself. Either you can choose to be a victim or can learn something from it. I choose to Learn.
Every time someone comes complaining to me. I have the choice to accept complaints or I can point out the positive side of life. I chose the positive side of life.”

Sam replied, “It’s not as easy as you say.”

Michael continued and said, “Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live your life.”

Sam left the company and they never met again. Several years later Sam came to know about a serious accident that happened to Michael. Michael fell from a 60 feet high communication tower and was injured badly. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital.

After a year of the accident, Sam got a chance to meet Michael. When he met Michael he asked him about his health and well-being.


After this Sam asked him, “What was going on in your mind as the accident took place??”
Michael replied, “Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live.. or I could choose to die. I chose to live..”

Sam asked, “Weren’t you scared?”
Michael replied, “When I saw the expressions of doctors I was really scared. In their eyes I could see — “He’s a dead man”. Then I knew I had to do something.

One of the nurses came asked if I were allergic to anything and I said yes. Then all doctors and nurses stopped waiting for my reply.

I took a deep breath and yelled, “Gravity..”.

Over their laughter, I told them, I’m choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.”

Moral: Every day we have the choice to live fully. We should Understand the Effect of keeping a Positive Attitude in Life. Each day has enough trouble of its own. It’s our Choice how we React to Situations and Live.
