Connotative Zero

How good are we at knowing the powers of ZERO, not in the maths or physics or other sciences but in general pattern of life? Must have heard people talking about others, “he is just a zero, or, he has gone zero after that incident or she made him totally a zero or vice versa” or in local slang, “tu tow zero hi ho gaya hay yar”. Zero in general is connoted as negative.

Largest of the sum if divided by zero results into zero shows how negative a zero can be and on the same hand the more you add a zero on the left of a digit it will continue to reduce the value of that digit but when u place the same zero on the right side of a digit it increases the value with every single addition.

Here, I am trying to relate the zero with our attitudes, aptitudes, behaviors and the skill sets. Inclusive of all these traits, to me the zero matches the most to our attitudes. Positive attitude is a zero powered on the right side of the digit, negative attitude is a digit multiplied with zero and casual attitude is a zero powered on the left side of a digit which keeps reducing the power of that digit and digit here I mean is us, the individuals.

Now let’s talk about the attitudes, as to how they matter in day to day life. A person who takes everything positively never regrets nor does he/she go into any depressive mood on any happening and that helps them in maintaining or even improving whatever he/she does.

Person with a negative attitude never feels comfortable even if he/she is on the top of the world (which he/she can never be) and none around such a person can be in any kind of comfort. Casual attitude takes us down with every passing moment and it’s quite late by the time we realize.

Personal, educational or professional life, the attitude matters everywhere, the earlier we mould our attitudes the better it would be. No matter how large a digit we are, the moment we are multiplied by the ZERO of our attitude we’ll be all zero. Even being a minor digit if we add our positive attitude’s zeros on our right, we can grow even larger to the largest digits.

It will be a pleasure to have your valued critique, comments and additions to elaborate ‘zero’ a bit more.
