He was now habitual of dealing with any tough situation by reacting in a negative way. He used to get irritated easily with an odd situation.
One day he thought of visiting a doctor. He elaborated his situation to a doctor and he was advised to start doing some mind relaxation practice.

He continued practicing the meditation he learned there. Slowly, he started noticing changes in his personality.
With regular practice of meditation, he developed a strong will power and a very positive attitude. He started noticing that he is now able to control his anger to quite an extent. He started accepting people and the situations that came on his way. He used to behave in a balanced way in any odd situation. He was able to handle tough situations in a very composed manner thus gaining high respect from his colleagues at the office.
When asked about his meditation practice, Ram Govil said that he used to make a daily chart of all the actions performed by him and surrender it in front of the almighty. He reminded himself frequently of the original qualities that he possesses and very soon changes started reflecting in his attitude.
In his meditation, he used to visualise himself sitting in the lap of God and taking his blessings. He used to repeat one sentence that he is a 'supreme and blessed soul'. In the night before going to bed, he used to remind himself of his actual being and the qualities that he carries within himself. He used to do this on a daily basis and it gave positive results. Explaining his meditation practice, he said that it is not just meditation but a complete lifestyle and a life-transforming process.
Ram Govil, further talking about the positive changes in him, said that he can notice a 60 percent improvement in his anger. He is now a positive man and his acceptance power has also increased. He is able to face tough situations in a much better way.
Further, talking about the biggest transformation in his life he said that he has now started seeing positive in every situation.
Quoting the example of his stress, he said that he has now developed a belief system that whatever happened in his life was for a good.
And this reminds us of a popular quote from Bhagavata Gita, which read as, ‘Whatever happened, happened for the good. Whatever is happening, is happening for the good; whatever will happen, will also happen for the good.’
