# Whats ur perspective??

The next time you are thirsty, hold up a glass of water in front of you before you drink from it, is it half-full or is it half-empty?
This is a decision that is entirely yours to make. It is also a decision that reflects your general outlook on life.

Your thoughts and how you react to external events are the only things in life you have direct control over. You cannot control certain situations, and you cannot control how other people behave, but you can control how you react to these events.

There are always two sides to any situation, to any event, and to any person. Focus on the negative in these circumstances and you will not feel great about who you are and what you’re doing. You will always be expecting bad things to happen, and inevitably they will, because that is what your focus is on.

However, if you focus on the positive in everything, by seeking the lesson each mistake has to teach you, and the growth that occurs through overcoming difficulties, you will attract more positive situations into your life.

When you say things like “I don’t want to be ill,” or “I don’t want to forget something” your focus is on the negative aspects of the situation, even if you want a positive outcome. In these situations you are focusing on the words “ill” and “forget,” both of which have negative connotations. Instead, focus on wanting to be healthy and remembering that something.

You can change your focus by controlling the information you receive. Rather than reading about or watching negative news items, read or watch motivational material. This will instantly put you into a positive mood and you will begin to focus on the positives of life.

By choosing to focus on the positives, you will be choosing to think positively, and once you think positively you will begin to take positive actions in your life.

So, are you feeling thirsty? Go grab a glass of water, and answer the question; is it half-full or is it half-empty?
