How do you see Things?
This afternoon I picked up my daughter from school and we headed off to her after school activity. On the way we talked about the weather. This afternoon in Canberra the there is a thick cloud and it is raining.
- What would be your thoughts and feelings about the weather?
- Would you see it as a miserable day?
- Would you be glad to work inside (if you do)?
- Would you see the rain as great for the Garden?
- Are you picturing beautiful green gardens due to the rain?
Though all of the above thoughts are factual correct, they are very different views of the day and the weather. These thoughts got me thinking, how do I see the world? Is the glass half full or half empty?
I must admit that though I do not enjoy driving in the rain or being outside in the rain getting wet, I do like it when it rains. I enjoy the fresh air that comes after the rain and the green gardens after the rain. Overall I think that rain is a great experience, in particular all the benefits of the rain after the event.
So in order to maintain a positive attitude you do not need to like the event….. For example the rain….. However you may enjoy the benefits that the event will bring. For example the fresh air and the green garden. I guess it comes down to what you focus on? The rain or the green garden?
What do you focus on?
