Positive Thinking

Look at this glass in front of you. Is it half full or
is it half empty

Now, do you realize that it is entirely for you to decide what the answer to this question is going to be. The choice is yours. So, the very same reality can be seen in totally opposite ways: in a positive way, and in a negative way.And there is always a positive side to any thing, any situation, any event, any person. Look at the world in a different way. Try to find out that positive side. At first, you might literally have to dig it out, but after some time, it automatically appears to you. In fact, you eventually only see the good side.

Everything is beautiful, "everybody's beautiful, in their own way", as the song goes.

In any situation, however apparently bad, keep cool and coolly examine the situation. Turn it upside down, inside out, downside up and outside in. Suddenly you realize it could have been worse. Find out how and why it could have been worse. Finally, the good side of it will just appear to you.This can happen gradually or in a flash.
Soon you'll see all things and all people in a positive way What you call "failure" is in fact simply a new opportunity to try again and do better than if you had "succeeded" in the first place.
Now, have you noticed that a rich person has more of a chance of getting a bank loan than a poor person? In otherwords: you must have money to be given more money! In the same way, if you are a "happy person", you'll get more happiness.
As the great American poet Theodore Roethke said: "The right things happen to the happy man" Don't worry, whatever type of person you are, you can easily turn yourself into a "happy person".
You can almost say it's "easier said than done" but please, just try and soon, very soon, in fact much sooner than you think, you'll take up a sturdy and radiant Positive Attitude to life and THAT is the only key to wellness, happiness, and a longer life.
