Is your glass half full?
Or is it half empty?
Do you focus on the positive?
Do you fixate on the negative?
Which way do you see things?
I am a born and bred pessimist.
I see the half empty glass of water.
I don't see what's left as thirst quenching.
I tend to worry rather than expect the best.
But I've learned to ignore this first response.
I've trained myself to think positive.
I've learned to see opportunities.
I can see hope now.
In fact some people say I'm blindly optimistic now; how little they know about the debate in many head. When I seize a challenge or propose an idea it is based on facts and analysis but when uncertainty is left, I air on the possibilities rather than the problems.
I might even go so far as to suggest that this glass has two great things about it; it's half full of water and half full of air. What positivity.
Do I share this?
Because if I can do this then you can too.
Try thinking a little more hopefully about things; you never know, it might catch on.
