Mind Power – How Can You Get a Positive Outcome?

It seems that every time my husband, Brian, goes out of town, something unexpected goes wrong. This time was no exception, maybe because my subconscious mind power was taking control, recalling past times.

While Brian was far away in San Diego, California, I was driving on the Interstate 10 freeway in Houston, Texas to my next stop on a Saturday afternoon. Traffic was okay.

Then I heard honking to my right.

I looked over that way and saw a man driving a wrecker truck and yelling something to me as he pointed to the rear of my car. Now I am not so good at lip-reading, but I started thinking it sure looked like he was saying, “You have a flat tire!”

As that driver exited the freeway, another driver behind him also honked at me and pointed to the back of my car. So I started trying to tell if my car felt lower on the right rear side, and I quickly decided that it was in my best interest to take the next exit.

So I did that and drove into a shopping center parking lot. I chose a spot right by the tall shopping center sign held up by 2 large poles. In this area there were all vacant spots nearby, and the sign was a good landmark to tell the service person where to locate my car.

When I got out of the car and went to look at the right rear tire, there it was…pretty flat (actually ugly flat), but not entirely flat….Whew! Hopefully the rim isn’t damaged, I was thinking.

And how wonderful that I had my cell phone with me. I was grateful for that and for being a member of Triple A. When I called Triple A, a nice woman took my call. I told her my car had a flat tire, and she asked if I was out shopping.

“Yes, grocery shopping. I have fresh produce in the car, but no meat or milk.”

“I’ll put a rush on it,” she replied. Then after she recorded all my information, she said “You’ll get a call back shortly.”

And shortly it was. The phone recording told me help would arrive at 3:00 pm, which was 40 minutes away.

Instead of getting upset that my car had a flat tire and that I had to spend time waiting to get that tire changed, I was really grateful that something worse hadn’t happened. I appreciated the 2 drivers who alerted me to the problem.

I was also thankful that the wait time was less than an hour and that the weather was beautiful. It could
have been rainy and cold as it had been the past few days, but the sun was shining and it was cool. Really nice.

Since it was very noisy outside by the freeway, I got back inside the car so I would be sure to hear on my cell phone. I called Brian and left a message on his voice mail and then called our daughter. Got her voice mail and was in the process of leaving a message when I heard a beep on my phone.

I expected it to be her calling me back, but it was my Triple A helper calling to get my exact location. When I told him, he said he was only 5 minutes away!

Ah, yes, it was my lucky day!

Not long afterward, he appeared, and I got out of my car. He got out of the Triple A van with a radiant smile as he held out his hand. As I shook his hand, I was happy to have such a cheerful, nice man to help me.

Without further ado, he pulled out his equipment and proceeded to quickly change my tire. Afterward, he again shook my hand. I’d say we brightened each others’ day.

So having a flat tire had turned out to be a good experience. Something much worse could have happened. And the weather was delightful. Two strangers on the freeway got their chance to help and took action. Triple A came through for me once again with great service.

How likely do you think I am to keep my Triple A membership?

If you said very likely, you’d be right!

What did you get out of this story?

Did you get a lesson or two? Maybe more?

How about some lyrics to get a hint for at least one lesson?

These lyrics are from my song, ‘The Gift of the Present’

Each moment is a blessing,
a gift from above,
a gift given to us
with eternal love.

So what did you learn from my story?

I hope that positive mind power and gratitude will create good outcomes for you.

The choice is up to you! You’ve got to help yourself.

Expect the best! You deserve it!

Till next time…

    that is a good story. i agree, it is pretty easy to look for the good in things if you try. it can be easy to get angry, but it rarely solves anything.

    Nice stories to share with us.
    When you increase your mind power, you literally think your way to a better life; even into genius. You think and grow better relationships. You think and grow mentally stronger. You think and grow a successful business or get a new promotion. You can even think and grow rich!

    Hey nice presentation of post using good stories to create more interest in the readers. Great post I must say.
    Now each of us defines success in our own way. For some it means making a lot of money. For others it is winning a sporting championship or excelling at a vocation. Still others find success in raising a family, devoting themselves to a worthy cause, traveling the world or becoming an artist. Each of us decides what success is to us, and that is how it should be. Whatever your vision of success is, you can achieve it; you can achieve anything you put your mind to once you understand Mind Power.

    Since the mind reflects habitual thoughts, it is therefore our responsibility to influence our mind and brain with positive emotions, thoughts and energy as the dominating factors in our mind. Mind power is beyond positive thinking or brain power, it is thinking than believing what you think that will manifest your reality. Since this mind power is power of thought and beliefs, and these thoughts and beliefs will create the outcome of your now, you will want to stay aware to the reflections you are thinking.

    Finding the good in each of your life experiences, however unfortunate they may seem at first is key. Your post reflects that positive thinking certainly has its rewards. As a side note- you gotta love AAA.

    I think the song, ‘Happy’ by Sister Hazel is great. It’s about a guy hanging out with a friend, who points at anther person and asks if he would like to be like him. At first he responds, “No.” Then he notices that the 3rd person is smiling and he has an epiphany, “Why not?” As the lyrics go, “Then he cracks that smile that don’t look so bad to me. Happy, that’s not good enough for you?” It always keeps me reminds me to be positive and touches my heart.

    Susan, it’s great that you have that song to remind you to be positive. Thanks for sharing!
