My Wife Doesn’t Believe It
Last night I received the following email from a
reader in India. It’s got SUCCESS written all over
it. Read and see why:
I too would like to tell you my experience with my eight-year
old son, Mehul, in far away India.
In India we have a ranking system in school. Mehul stood
eighth rank in the first term exams. During that time i was
reading Psycho-Cybernetics and I trusted that this book
will surely make him leap to the first rank. So from the
very next day i asked him to meditate for only 10 minutes.
He was to visualize that the principal of the school called
out his name for the first rank and he was going ahead
to pick the trophy. i asked him visualize in vivid details
everything – the smile on his friends face, the standing
ovation he got etc.
He too believed in this idea and never missed a single day
of visualization. You won’t believe it the class teacher called
and informed us just before the third term was to start that
Mehul has stood first in his class.
I would like to add that he still continues his visualization
without missing even a single day and his performance in
all the spheres has been top class. He was a timid introverted
boy and now people don’t believe whether he is the same guy.
He is developing into a talented dancer when before he was
not able to stand in front of an audience.
i don’t understand when it is so easy to make a eight year
old boy understand the power of visualization, the grown
ups are so skeptical and doubtful when I suggest this
technique. I feel they fear success more then anything
My wife has seen this transformation but when i suggest
it to her turn to try this great method she does not seem
enthusiastic. It will be many more times more effective for
her but i am not able to convince her.
Matthew will you be able to help her.
MJF: Manoj, first off, I commend you for the positive influence
you are having on your son. Now that he is in the top rank it
is important to continually emphasize to him that the journey
is, in truth, more important than the rank. If he continually
puts forth his best effort, and does not need to be motivated
by external awards, if he is inspired rather than motivated, I
think you and he will both be all the better for it.
As for your wife, it is not your job to make sure she believes
everything you believe or that your son believes. Continue to
love her and support her even if she never opens to these
teachings. YOU and you alone are under your control. Your
son took to visualization because he wanted to. You’ve been
the guide – yet he could have refused to be open, too, if he
If you always remember to ask yourself, when frustrated,
what is and what isn’t under your control; what is and
what isn’t your business – I believe you’ll enjoy even more
moments of inner peace and happiness than you now
Best to you and your family. And thank you for writing to let
me know how everything is going with your son.
