Do You Know the Great Powers of Theism, Rectitude, and Optimism?

According to the learned and religious persons, enlightened and virtuous sages and priests, and the majority of highly successful people of the world over, theism, rectitude, and optimism are truly great and miraculous qualities. These marvelous qualities enabled people to withstand and survive adversities patiently and hopefully, manage things successfully within one’s constraints, achieve success despite scant resources and obstacles, make wonders in one’s occupation, and earn name and fame in the society. This highly creative and sanguine blog expounds briefly the great powers of theism and optimism, to help struggling and other people in general, of the world over. Explanations regarding “what make optimists very successful in life?”, are also essentially included specifically.

Theism: Theism is belief in the existence of at least one God or Deity in the universe. This term essentially encompasses the classical conception of God described in Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Jainism, etc. A theist believes that the entire universe has been created by the concerned God, every thought or deed is influenced and regulated by the God, and judicious and omnipotent God is transcendent and eternal source of order and hope in the whole universe. The laws of the nature are simply the laws of God, devised for these purposes. Duly powered by these unflinching and ever-deepening conception and beliefs, theists naturally become successful in living a life of peace and fraternity, creativity, complacence, and divine generosity. Under prolonged adverse and grueling circumstances, only theists are able to survive smoothly, living contented and hopeful, along with doing their best within the given confinement. Under such circumstances, atheists are most likely to lose hope and wither, and thus start living recklessly. Hope, optimism, and justice are inherent and ever-lasting qualities of theists. The miracles of optimism are described separately in the lower section.

Positive Thinking and Optimism: Positive thinking and optimism are collectively a mental attitude or tendency to think and expect good, positive, and creative things under both favorable and adverse circumstances existing at any point of the present or future life. These qualities enable optimistic people to see the proverbial glass as half-full, rather than as half-empty (as the pessimistic people often do). These positive thinking and optimism are certainly great qualities for boosting the physical and mental health of people, and also for dealing effectively and constructively with problems and upsetting cases ever existing in the spheres of occupation, family, relationships, education and career building, other fields of private life, and the social life of people. Consequently, in general, the optimistic people are more successful in life, have happier careers/businesses, better health and vitality, lavisher married life, and greater social contacts and reputation, than these of the pessimistic people. These benefits of optimism and positive thinking have been observed both in the high- and low-income countries, and despite differences in age, gender, income level, education, health status, and occupational fields. The below paragraphs expound “how does optimism contribute to success and health?” of the rich and poor alike.

The positive thinking affects everything of life constructively, and the optimistic people become able to harvest more good and creative things from anything, than the pessimistic do. Optimists keep up positive outlook on life, do not get depressed or daunted easily, even in face of adversity. And, therefore, optimists are remarkably more successful than pessimists in adverse circumstances and when important life-goals are impaired, by mystic and uncontrollable forces of the nature. Optimistic people habitually see hindrances and negative occurrences as minor setbacks, and view achievements and good happenings as evidence of more creative and happy things to come in future. Moreover, only optimistic and confident people can take risks or make innovations to do more creative and positive things and events in life. Also, optimistic people handle stresses better than the pessimistic ones. Stresses are largely responsible for causing high blood pressure, heart related troubles and diseases, depression, obesity, low vitality and immunity, and a variety of psychological and physical troubles. According to a series of scientific studies conducted in Europe, USA, and other countries all across the world from time to time, optimistic patients recovered faster from various diseases and surgeries than the pessimistic patients. Thus, on the whole, optimism offers a rather rosy outlook on all things of life, while pessimism induces a gloomy outlook, to make all things worse. Here, it must be noted that to obtain the best results from optimism, optimism should be intelligently and ethically justified, inspired constructively by deep interest and circumstances, dedicated to theism, and must not just be a mere foolhardiness.

Rectitude: Rectitude is beneficial to a person, both internally or spiritually and externally or temporally. Externally, rectitude is highly desirable and therefore highly and greatly appreciated in every field of occupation, in a family or any gathering, in the society, and in all other spheres or places of interpersonal dealings and transactions. It is rectitude which offers a person or company good reputation and creditability, stability in marketplace or status, steadfast success and growth, and ever-lasting fame. These highly significant and pivotal things of life are not likely to be achieved by a dishonest and depraved person or organization. On the other hand, rectitude (especially the perennial rectitude) acts like a powerful tonic or elixir to the internal peace, pleasure, vitality, and spiritual sanctity and uplift.
