Glass Half Full or Half Empty

Are you the type of person that believes in the glass being half full or half empty?
Do you see the bright side of a situation?
What do you do when things go wrong?

You may have noticed in this world that some people seem to always see the bright side of life, while others seem to always see the worst in a situation. Some people say that we are born either positive or negative, while others say that it is something that we can develop. I tend to live on the bright side of life; however I also believe that we can choose our outlook.

So what can we do to improve our outlook? After all we all have bad days, weeks or even months. I tend to need time alone to think and also fill my mind with positive thoughts. I fill my mind with positive thoughts through affirmations, reading and listening to positive material. Though we are all different, I find that positive material to support oneself is a good first step.

I am not saying it is easy to maintain a positive outlook, especially when thinks are going wrong. There may be times that you also need to talk to professionals and seek treatment if there is a deeper issue. These can be all steps to move towards a better outlook.

So why do we want to have a positive outlook? What is the benefit to having a positive outlook? I find that by having a positive outlook my mind tends to go to solutions when I hit a snag. By having a positive outlook one’s mind operates in a more creative space. I also find myself happier in general through having a positive outlook. So I encourage you all to seek out a positive outlook.

What do you do to improve your outlook of life?
Do you find solutions when faced with a snag?
What gives you a lift in energy?

  1. Hey Attila, thanks for following my blog! I like yours also. Changing your mindset can be a daunting task…at first. But filling your life with “positivity” can be a great buffer! And nothing is wrong with seeking help to put things in perspective.

  2. Agree! Being positive helps you to be a part of the solution. Have a positive day ahead! 🙂

  3. Thank you for overlooking any stupidity in my reply – I am new at blogging and have not learned enough yet but I shall try – Perhaps by keeping a positive attitude


  4. Hi Attila, I am a half full person and there are so many benefits for seeing thinks from the positive side. One of the big ones is that when tough, or tragic things do happen, which they will, people with positive attitudes will bounce back quicker. I hope all is well with you and your family 🙂

  5. As an engineer, I joke with people that my glass is not half empty—it’s over designed. But seriously, I agree with what you said. We have to discover what works for us. I personally create a positive outlook by thinking of God, praying or listening to a positive, uplifting sermon.

  6. As an engineer, I often joke with people that my glass is not half empty—it’s over-designed. But seriously, I agree with what you said. We have to find what works for us to create a positive outlook. And it is different for each person. To improve my outlook, I like to think about God and pray to him. And I enjoy listening to positive sermons and motivational speakers.

  7. What if I think the glass is always full? Even if it’s half full of water, the other half is full of air.

  8. “positive” relies on a conceptualization of the opposite. life has no opposite — simply is. deciding to focus on bright side of things is enforced delusion, limiting real-time action for the creation of a reality that produces better mood.

  9. Sometimes, when a person has had some serious trauma over a long period of time, it is difficult to quickly overcome the well of sadness. One must relearn the art of finding that passion for life again. It’s a long road, but it can be done with support and pluck.
