Is Your Glass Half Full or Half Empty?

Kelly's Quest

“Happiness is not something that can be found by simply looking for it, it’s a mood you create by being positive and seeing the glass as half full instead of half empty.”

-Rashida Rowe

Is your glass half full, or half empty? We’ve all heard this saying in one form or another, after all, it’s a common expression used to show whether a situation is cause for optimism or pessimism. How one looks at the cup shows one’s worldview.

We can go through life with an optimistic, or pessimistic attitude. The comedian Woody Allen sees the glass as half full…but of poison. When asked if his cup is half full or half empty, Sam Lefkowitz replied that he was thankful he had a cup. One day someone showed Alexander Vodorowsky a glass that was half full and asked him if it was half full or half empty, so he drank…

The matrix: Architects of our own paradise

“The traumatic brain injury (TBI) would have rendered my life pointless if I had let it.”
“You’re not disabled (limited) by your disabilities, you are able (enabled) by your abilities.”



Max Mteliso’s words

Morpheus: “I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it” (The Matrix)

You can in fact do it

“It always seems impossible…until it gets done”
Nelson Mandela


new-york-918682_1920.jpgThat thing you want to achieve, is it physically impossible to do it? No? Then you can in fact do it. No matter what. And the most important and thrilling thing of all is this: It is easy to do it. An unfortunate problem in our world is that most people don’t understand what easy means. It means something can be done. If a five year old can tie her shoelaces, or if a quantum physicist can calculate some quantum phenomena – to that person, it is easy. If you can do something, it is easy.

Getting anywhere in life, where it is not physically impossible to go, just demands a long array of small easy actions. Say you want to be an entrepreneur, what are you to do? You are to get up in the morning [easy], take on clothes [easy], and throw yourself out there [easy], take risks [easy]…
