Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?

Share This Post

How many times have you come across a great metaphor shown by Coaches, Motivational Speakers showing a half-filled glass of water and asking us to explain?

We listen to two different types of replies from the audience, and it is half-filled or half-empty. Both answers are correct, and the third answer is that the glass is half-filled with water and half-filled with air. A few trainers ask us to hold the glass of water and see how long we can hold it. This is a wonderful way to explain and instill in the subconscious mind how our attitude of looking at our life can change our lives.

But is it beneficial to listen, praise the coach and soon forget the concept?

My point is: is it of any practical use?

Surely yes, you just need to take the necessary action, which will come by accepting a challenge and taking responsibility for your actions and life.

It does not matter if the glass is half-filled, full, or empty, and we should start taking action whatever state we are in. Drip by drip fill the glass, and your glass will fill completely one day.

Even if you do not take any action, you will still survive. But you will never be able to discover and use the immense quality and talents you have; they will go unused and will go with you to the grave with your unfulfilled dreams.

To live a fulfilling life, make a habit of asking questions, analyzing yourself, and discovering your potential.

You are the pilot of your flight and can land your life in a happy and proud destination or in an unhappy land. The choice is yours.

I appeal to you to act, accept the challenge, and take responsibility to enjoy a meaningful life for yourself and others.
