Is Your Glass Half-Empty or Half-Full?
Is your glass half-empty or half-full? I ask this because your answer reflects what kind of person you are and how you view the world.
My glass is half-full. I am always trying to achieve more in life and dreaming of what is next. I never take my eye off the ball. Maybe that comes from growing up with two older brothers but no sisters and being the baby of the family. I was always competitive. I always needed to do more and be more.
I’ve been around folks whose glasses are half-empty. They drive me absolutely crazy. They constantly complain. Nothing is ever quite right. They look for the littlest thing to find fault with instead of looking at the big picture. Do you know people like this? I bet you do. How do you handle being around them? Do you limit your time around them?
I ask these questions because life is about the choices we make. Do you wake up in the morning and think about how your day might go? Do you think about it in a positive or negative way? Is your job just drudgery? Or do you view it as an opportunity to accomplish something every day?
This week, think about making the choice to be happy. Think about bringing happiness and a positive attitude to those around you. Choose to be someone whose glass is half-full.
Until next time.
