Half-Empty or Half-Full?

Seeing a glass-half-empty or half-full has a great impact in your life more than you can imagine. How you think of the glass has a great influence on how you react to an event in your life or to a person. Seeing the glass as half-full means you have an abundance mindset; on the other hand, seeing the glass half-empty may mean that you have a scarcity type of mindset.

Abundance in simple words means having a large quantity of something. People who have this type of mindset sees others as allies, friends, confederate, partner or supporter; which lets them empower others and at the same time amplify their ability because of their help, which leads them to success. Their mentality is that “there is enough for everyone”.

On contrast, scarcity means having a short of supply of something. It is the complete opposite of the abundance mindset type of people. These people see others as competition, foes, rivals or an opposition; which makes them untrusting, unconfident and unhappy. These people tend to distance themselves from other people which make it harder for them to reach success. Their mentality is “there is a limited supply of everything”.

An abundance mindset creates a positive ripple to your personality which in turn would reflect to others. Let us become people of positivity and shine the light, working together will take you farther than walking alone. I’ll just share one of my favorite African Proverb – “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
