Can You Stop Using Your Cell Phone for One Hour?

Cell Phone

Are you attached to your cell phone, unable to leave it aside for a few minutes?

Can you travel by bus or train, or wait in line, without texting with your cell phone?

What can happen, if for just one hour you stop your curiosity?

What do you do when you are walking on the pavement and wish to cross a small and narrow street, where there are no vehicles, but the light is red at the pedestrian’s crossing?

What do you if all the pedestrians are crossing the street, not heeding the traffic lights? Do you cross the street too, while the light is red, because everyone else is doing so?

Suppose you see all the people are crossing the street, but you stop and say, “I don’t care what they are doing, I am going to wait until the light changes.” You will most probably feel awkward and think that people are laughing at you or ridiculing you, because you are waiting for the light to change. You don’t want to attract undue attention and you don’t want everyone looking at you.

Do you know that you can use this situation to your advantage? You can use this situation to develop inner strength, courage, and decisiveness.
