Healing Power of Positivity

The impact of hope and encouragement in life

Healing power of positivity through hope and encouragement

In London, a nurse quickly entered the patient’s room just before two hours of the operation and efficiently began preparing and setting up the operating equipment.

While engrossed in her tasks, the nurse suddenly asked the patient about the name of the surgeon who was performing his surgery. The patient responded weakly to the nurse (looking away desperately) and mentioned, “Dr. Johnson.”

The nurse was surprised by the doctor’s name. Without hesitation, she interrupted his talk and walked over to the patient. With genuine concern, she inquired, “Excuse me, sir, I heard that Dr. Johnson will be performing your surgery. Can you confirm if this is true?” The patient verified that he was the one who would perform his surgery.

However, the confused nurse kept asking, “But it is so strange about that?” The patient said, what’s unique there?

“Well, you know! Dr. Johnson has completed thousands of heart surgeries; all were 100% successful. It’s almost impossible to get his time on short notice as he has so much work to do. Incredibly, you can set up an appointment with him. You are lucky!

The patient expressed gratitude for having Dr. Johnson as their surgeon. The nurse was surprised and said, “I can’t believe it!” I can’t believe the best doctor in the world will be doing your surgery!

After this conversation, the patient was taken immediately to the operating room, where the successful surgery was performed. As a result, he now lives a happy and healthy life.

What’s interesting is that the woman who came into the room wasn’t just a nurse but a female doctor and a psychologist at the same hospital. Her job was to calm the patient’s nerves and make sure she was completely ready for surgery, and she did a great job of doing just that.

It demonstrates the efficacy of optimism and encouragement and that you don’t have to be an expert to give someone an injection of energy. The power of your words can turn around a person’s life.

    Ameer, I am a retired registered nurse. Each time I gave my patient a medication for pain, I would say, "This is going to make you feel so much better." I very much believe that the power of positive words work.
