Positive Attitude: It is all about how you perceive,the glass half full or empty has the same amount of liquid in it either ways.The pessimist sees it half-empty while optimist is going to see that half-full,either way it is what you say it is.
Having a positive attitude is something that can be learned if one has a problem controlling their emotions.Finding the “positive” in everything is the key to being positive.
Here’s a short story to help you remember that how we respond to situations is depending upon your attitude.
Potatoes, Eggs, and Coffee Beans
Once, a daughter complained to her father, “My life is getting very pathetic, one problem after another is coming to an end.” Problems are constantly coming in life, what should I do? “
Her father was a chef, so he took her to the kitchen, filled water in three utensils and set it on high fire . When all three started boiling, he put potatoes in one pot, egg in another and coffee seeds in the third.
And by doing this, both daughter and father began to watch that action. After some time, the father turned off the fire.
Father asked the daughter what did you see, she said potatoes, eggs and coffee. Then at the father’s behest, the daughter touched the potato, which had become tender, the egg was also boiled. The father then asks the daughter to drink a sip of coffee. The daughter drank a sip, its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.
Turning to her he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?”, “Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,” she hastily replied. He then explained that potato, egg and coffee all got the same type of “hot water” but the response was different.
Despite the hardness of the potatoes, they themselves became soft with hot water. The same thing happened with eggs, but the coffee seeds, being unique, changed the water itself to create a new substance.
In the same way this is applicable to you when the problem comes to you, only your response to the problem makes you successful, either you change yourself or succeed by changing the situation, both are in your hands. When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?”
In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us.Our attitude towards the problem makes us successful or unsuccessful.
Let me know, Which one are you? potato, egg or coffee comment in the comment section.
