Mind bell should ring when needed[Special prize winner for Topic of the Month TOW contest]
Sometimes it happens that during tough and pressure situations in life our mind becomes blank on reacting to situations. Our presence of mind and common sense simply does not click on the spur of the moment. But after the pressure situation eases our mind again starts working and we tend to repent thinking that I should have said this or done that. Hence we can say that "Bell" of our mind sometimes fails to ring when really required under tight circumstances. It can be said that for the people whose mind bell rings at the right moment of time when the situation really demands tend to face less inconvenience and get positive outcomes of their effort.
We can see many examples from the life as below where sometimes mind bell fails to ring at the crunch times causing inconvenience and failure.
A student studies hard but gets nervous and fails to solve a problem in the exams. But he is able to do it after the exams. While the other student who studied less but remained calm was able to solve the problem in exams.
In cricket, a batsman is batting under pressure situation gets run out unnecessarily during a crunch time by committing a blunder mistake.
A candidate facing interview though well prepared is not able to answer the question properly at that moment of time and his mind goes blank and short of ideas.
Sometimes during the conversation with people or during meetings a person is unable to recall right questions to be asked in response to the conversation. But later lot of things come to his mind as to questions that should have been asked.
Sometimes in hurry mind loses stability and we tend to forget things we need to do or items we need to buy.
Hence it is essential to make our mind bell ring at the right time to avoid inconvenience. Sometimes people who are able to ring their mind bell timely tend to be more successful.
The only way we can make our mind bell ring at the right moment is by keeping our mind calm and not overloading it. This allows mind some space to apply common sense and presence of mind as per the situation.
