  2. One thing I have understood in Life is,

    1) If I think positive, I feel Good Immediately
    2) If I think negative, I feel Bad Immediately

    Then I analyzed, what? is Thinking?
    Answer I found was? "Thinking is just a play of words, words & words"

    Think about the word "Problem" and "Challenge". Both say same thing, but
    the later feels good and former bad.

    Infact, I am using a iPhone called "iVocab" by Lokesh Hanumappa which helps me in a terrrifc way to learn words and track feelings of the words.
