Glass half full or half empty

Glass half full or half empty? What comes to your mind when you see a glass of water with the water up to half of the glass? Do you subconsciously think that it is half full or that it is half empty?

This analogy teaches positivity. The way we interpret our situations is very important. A positive mindset and attitude makes for a positive life.

When you see a glass of water as half empty rather than as half full, you are not looking towards the positive side. You are not considering that half of the glass still contains water rather you are considering the half empty part 

While some people may argue that you are only being realistic when you say it is half empty, aren’t you also being realistic when you say that it is half full? Why don’t we fill our reality with positivity rather than with negativity.

Understand that everything that is now in existence was made out of things that are invisible. Someone thought about transforming a wood to a chair in their mind long before it was made a chair. It all starts with your mind 

Statistics have shown that people who are positive have a much better life than the so-called “realists”. 

There are so many benefits to having a positive mindset:

1. They see the opportunity in every bad situation: People who have a positive mindset always see an opportunity in any situation no matter how bad. They ask themselves, “How do I make the best of this situation?” Rather than saying, “This is the end of the road”. They see those stumbling blocks as stepping stones to the good life they are working towards and this makes them unstoppable.

2. They are happier: Positive people generally have a happier life because they are weighed less by stress and they let  go of the things that they cannot control and embrace only those things that they can control. This makes them happier and they live better and longer lives 

3. They get more out of life: People who are full of positivity get more out of life than those who are negative. Apart from the fact that they draw people closer to them thereby increasing their chances of getting help, favors and opportunities, they make the most use of whatever comes their way no matter how bad it may seem. They get lessons from their unfortunate circumstances and they do not continue to play the victim. This takes the power from the event they cannot control. 

Learn from the glass of water. It is half full, focus on that and make the best use of what you already have than focusing on what is no more.
