‘Is the glass half empty or half full?’ Do you see life as a reason to celebrate, or has your life become an everyday chore? But there is no doubt, we will achieve very little with a half empty glass.
No matter the experience, it’s important we look for and think about opportunities as well as constraints to try to balance the glass being half empty or half full. Our perceptions and how we see and cope with the world will always determine which expression refers to us.
Seeing everything from a glass half empty point of view will limit success, opportunities and health. It stands to reason that the more knowledgeable we are, the less likely we are to be negative and the fuller we will want our glass to be.
It’s important we choose to interpret our situation and circumstances positively. No matter what we’ve had to endure, it’s important we choose a half full cup.
