Are you a glass half empty kind of person?
The phrase is used to describe pessimists and people who have a negative outlook on life.
I have from time to time been described as a glass half empty kind of person.
I like to think of myself as an optimistic, positive person. I believe that when people put their minds to it they can achieve amazing things.
But sometimes I find it too easy to be critical. Finding fault in things is my weakness, and sometimes it is mistaken for negativity and I get the “glass half empty” label. But it is only when we are dissatisfied with things that things change, and improve. Improvement tends to be because of the “glass half empty” people
The glass half full people are happy, contented with life, pleased with the status quo. You can’t expect them to change anything, why should they when things are fine.
Why change things if you already think the glass is half full?
Why wouldn’t you change things if you think the glass is only half empty.
Be proud of being a glass half empty person. We need people who are not content with the way things are, All progress is dependant on them.
George Bernard Shaw said it better than me when he said,
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
