New Delhi: Power Minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday said that the central government was committed to provide electricity to all villages by 2018.
Speaking in the Loksabha, the minister said that 18,452 villages are to be provided electricity under the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gramin Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY). For this, new transmission lines will be set up, he added.
“This is being done as promised by the central government that within 1,000 days of its taking over, all villages, which do not have electricity, will be provided the same,” the minister told the house.
He also said that his ministry has come up with a mobile app, which could give the latest information on the on-going work of village electrification.
Goyal also called upon states to cooperate with the central government to achieve the common goal of providing electricity to all.
The brain can’t process negatives. For example, if I say: “Don’t think of a white elephant,” you will automatically think of a white elephant and visualize it in your mind. If someone buys an expensive pair of glasses and if he is worried about breaking them, it is very likely that he will. If it is a new shirt and you start worrying that you are going to spill some sauce on it, before long, you will spill the sauce and stain your shirt and you will say to yourself, “I knew it! I told you it always happens to me.”
We cannot tell our minds not to do something. Our minds cannot move away from something but only towards it. The problem is that if we concentrate on losing something, the world can make it happen for us. So, rather that imagining the worst, concentrate on what you have. Use your mental energy to focus on how you want things to be, and where you want your life to reach. Focus the mind in a positive direction!
If we practise using our imagination to enhance our performance and build our confidence, our performance will improve and so will we gain confidence. We can run that picture through our minds again and again mentally and rehearse on how confident we really are. Many confident people use this technique all the time. So if it is really so effective, why can’t we do the same and thus increase our confidence level? Speakers, especially, rehearse their speech to attain success before they climb the stage. Artists and athletes do the same and are able to give their best performance. However, when we think that we can’t do something, naturally we will not able to do it.
Have you noticed that when you decide to buy something, all of a sudden you see a mass of advertisements of that very item, or you may physically see the object. It is not just a coincidence. The mind is turned to that wavelength so the sample has to manifest itself!
