Do you want to know what is one of the secrets of happiness? To look at the glass half full and NOT half empty.
In every situation you can decide to see things in black and be really miserable; or you can choose to see the same situation in pink, and be happy.
Let’s say you lost your job. Not a nice situation that I have been through several times in my life.
You have 2 choices, number 1 or you choose to see the glass of water half empty, number 2 you decide it is half full.
1-If you decide to see the glass half empty:
You will see your situation like that:
- Loss of income
- Future less clear
- Loss of status
- Fear of the future
- Desire of revenge
- Miss your colleagues
If you see the glass half empty you will not end well, you may become alcoholic, overeat and put on weight, you might become violent or ill and depressed and sick etc….Will it help you to find another job? No on the contrary.
2- A winner will see the glass half full after loosing his job:
- More free time
- New opportunities
- Time to change of life
- Learn a new trade
- Find a better boss
- Become independant
- Read more
- Work out more
- Time to see friends and family
- Time to rest
The optimist by seeing the glass half full will react in a positive way and will see his loss of job as a situation to start a new life or career. He will be in a good mood, better health, and will increase his chances to find another job quicky.
You can see, same situation, two different attitudes to choose.
Choose to see the glass half full my friend, my exemple was for work, but in case of divorce, break up or other challenging situations, the method is the same.
See the glass half full and be happy.
