I’m talking about optimism vs. pessimism. Here’s a new take on it for you.
Take a (wine) glass and fill it up halfway with something good. Now ask yourself the common question, is it half empty or half full? Are you looking toward possibility or are you thinking negatively?
Now dump that liquid into a larger glass. Things are looking up. Look at all that space.
Now dump that into a smaller glass. Yikes.
Now dump it back into the first glass.
Now drink it.
The point is this: it doesn’t matter how empty or full the glass is. What matters is what you pour it into and how much you enjoy it. Now get out there and make something awesome and grow your glass. Optimism vs. pessimism is for amateurs.
