Positive Thoughts

There are two outcomes of every act, attempt or try. Success and failure, i.e. we get successful or we get a failure. But we have a tendency... that

1) We become happy and cheerful in the case of success. In this case, we don't want to see the reasoning behind getting the success.

2) We become unhappy or disappointed in case of failure. In this case we forget to see the reasoning behind the failure.

Hence, practicing rationalism is to understand the reasoning behind every success and failure and it is important.
By seeing a thing, perspective or phenomena what we think that solely depends upon us. We have a freedom and we can think in a negative way and that's harmful to us or to society, it would be better that we should positive.
We know that every coin has two sides. In the same way every perspective, phenomena has more than one aspects. There are multi dimensions of every situation. The important thing is that which aspect do you see and consider.
There are multi dimensions of every scene. We often just see the limited perspective of the dimensions which are in front of our eyesight and ignore the others which are not in front of our eyesight. That's our tendency!
Every dimension should be considered by us to understand the incidences and events. But we don't do so and without understanding the events and reasoning behind them we tend to blame the other irresponsible things.
The world is large enough. In this large world, the opportunities are everywhere in varied form and in large extent. What happens to us is that we always run behind one or limited opportunities and we don't consider the other (as alternatives). When we don't get that or those (limited) opportunities or the expected results, we generally get disappointed. This disappointment gets converted into stress, burden and perhaps sometimes into a depression and we start to think negatively.
We think, Why this happens or happened to just me? And ignore that there are more and in worse condition like me or us.
Being depressed and negative, ignoring the reasoning behind the failure, ignoring our inability, our lack of persistence and ignoring the other opportunities to be pursued and being just hopeless... is an unfair act!
We should check every reason behind the success or failure (instead of getting depressed) with the help of rationalism. According to Immanuel Kant (Critique of Pure Reason),
“All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason."
According to Galileo Galilei,
"In question of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."
According to Pope Paul VI,
"Of all human activities, man's listening to God is the supreme act of his reasoning and will."
According to Veronica Roth, (Divergent)
"Human reason can excuse any evil."
