REFLECTIONS OF LIFE (ROL) 151: LESSONS FROM MOSQUITOES 20 MARCH

Have you ever slept with a mosquito? Sorry, Wrong question.

Have you ever had an experience where mosquitoes did not allow you to sleep?

I am sure you have had several….. so have I.

Recently  I was having a sleepless night, thanks to the mosquitoes. I was getting irritated, then angry at the mosquitoes (also said some prayers for the mosquitoes to go away). Nothing worked. It was almost 1.45 am!!

I started thinking to myself. I am a motivational trainer. I try to make people think and look at positives. Why can’t I look at the positives in this situation?

Let me look at the positive qualities which these mosquitoes are demonstrating now. I found several:

1.     Dogged Determination: The mosquitoes were determined to suck blood out of me, come what may. They may be killed, as I was slapping everywhere on my body wherever I was hearing/feeling the irritating sound of the mosquitoes.

2.     Self Motivated: The mosquitoes were self motivated to move around my body searching for the open spaces where they could conveniently sit and suck my blood.

3.     Tenacious: I was getting tired slapping around, but not the mosquitoes. They were all fully enthusiastic and rearing to go. I envied their tenacity.

Once I looked at the positives, I actually fell asleep. Fortunately, I guess the mosquitoes also could feel that I had learnt so many things from them, they should give me a respite.

I woke up quite refreshed.

Reflections: There are positives in everything if you have eyes to look
