“If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t, you will see obstacles.”
Opportunities or Obstacles?
It is all about perspective isn’t it? Are you a glass half full or a glass half empty sort? Do you see opportunities in your life or obstacles? Of course, it is so much easier said than done. Our outlook is programmed from birth by life and gets more hard wired the longer we live.
Overcoming a negative attitude can sometimes seem insurmountable, but it can be done. One piece at a time, one step at a time. Recognizing it is the first stage, and a hard one at that. No one wants to believe they are a glass half empty type. But acknowledgement is the first step. Then taking that negative thought or attitude and consciously turning it around.
This is hard at first and can seem overwhelming, but again, you take it a piece at a time. It doesn’t happen overnight. But it does happen. As you consciously tackle negative thoughts, attitudes and beliefs and turn them around it becomes easier. Like a muscle, your ability grows.
And before you know it, people will start seeing you as a more positive person. And life seems to get a bit easier when it is fueled with positivity rather than negativity. It is like having the wind at your back, the whole way. And soon, you will be seeing opportunities rather than obstacles!
