Optimism and Pessimism are Self-fulfilling Prophecies
Your thoughts lead to actions. And what you see ahead often determines which direction you will choose. One person sees the glass half empty; the other sees it half full. One person sees a life filled with opportunity; the other sees danger lurking in the shadows. I have a feeling most pessimists look at my life and wonder why I even bother to keep trying. One voice in my head says, "it's okay. You can get through this." The other voice says, "your bank account is half-empty, your goals are half-empty and your life is half-empty. It's time to give up." Both voices are self-fulling prophecies. I understand that the voice I choose to pay attention to is the one that will lead me to my destination. Which voice will you listen to today?
