Quiz – Are You Optimistic?
Do you see the glass as half full or half empty? Are an optimist or a pessimist? Do you know about your thinking pattern?
Do you see the glass as half full or half empty? Are an optimist or a pessimist? Do you know about your thinking pattern? Because most of us do not know how we think. Our thinking is so ingrained in us, for years that we never attempt to analyze it. That analysis is important but we do not do that, because we find no need for that. Can you quiz yourself about your optimism?
let us begin. Say, something goes wrong in your life. What is your reaction? Do you think that the setback is temporary or you think it is all over? Do you think that things can be set right or you believe nothing can be done? Do you blame yourself if anything goes wrong? Or you blame the circumstances? These are some of the common difference between the thinking of an optimist and a pessimist.
An optimist always keeps hop. a pessimist always hopes for the worst. An optimist can enjoy rains. a pessimist will worry about flooding due to rains. An optimist can enjoy life. A pessimist will never be able to enjoy life. What is better- to be a pessimist or an optimist?
Obviously things will go wrong for one or the other reason. The law of probability says that. Rather than always expecting that things will go wrong, will it not be better if we think that things will be right? At least we will save ourselves from the pain of anticipation of things going wrong? Please quiz yourself about your thought process and if you are a pessimist, begin thinking more optimistically.
