Are you the person who sees the cup half full or half empty?
We all have days that are better than others. However, when something goes wrong, we’re late for work, there’s too much traffic, we receive disappointing news—the occasional bad mood makes you human, after all. But if you’ve found yourself in a relentless funk when pulling teeth is easier than forcing a smile, it may be time to make a shift in your lifestyle.
Did you know positive thinkers are at an advantage in life compared to pessimists? This is because of the effect your mindset and attitude has on everything you come across. Your social relationships, job and also your health are an integral part of your daily life. But…have you ever truly considered the disadvantages of not staying optimistic and positive in all situations, no matter how difficult and challenging? The cup really is half full – if you take a second look.
It is very easy to go down the slippery slope of focusing on the negative and dwelling on the bad things that have happened, and/or the worst-case scenarios which only drains us of our energy to be effective, be engaged, be happy and able to get things done. I would like to suggest taking the alternate path and developing the ability to look at the up side of life and maintain a positive attitude even in the worst of times which can make the ultimate difference in leading a happy life as well as a successful career.
People who are positive and optimistic leave strong and lasting impressions on others. Not only are they content and fulfilled, they are moving forward and successful!
