Is the glass half full or half empty?
Here is a different take you have probably never heard…
I heard this incredible story from a leader.
He has 3 daughters and asked them all the famous question, “is the glass half empty or half full?”
The first said the glass was half full.
The second said it was half empty.
The youngest who was around 8 years old said it depends. She said, “It depends on if the glass was just filled or emptied.”
What a powerful insight from a child!
Most of us get discouraged based on comparison and progress. If someone is making 1 million a year and then drops to 500k a year, they are almost always discouraged.
Whereas if someone is making 60k a year and jumps to 70k the next year they are ecstatic.
Progress gives us HOPE. It makes us feel like we are more fully reaching our potential which is our main purpose here on this earth. It makes us grateful.
Too many times we use money to gauge our progress and self worth. I have learned to focus on the effort rather than results and money. That’s how I measure my progress! It’s about the journey and effort.
It’s impossible to be grateful and unhappy at the same time. Be grateful for all your experiences.
Focus on doing your best and quit stressing the rest! Stop comparing!
