Thinking and Perception
Have you ever been
asked if your glass is half empty or half full?
It's really all

how you see things is very real. But your perception is based on how
you see things and what you believe. How you see things and what you

change your reality. This is the power of positive thinking and that's
why it becomes important to apply positive thinking everyday.
So if you're seeing
the glass as half full then you should take a look at your perceptions
of the world. You might be surprised to discover how you really see
things. If you have a negative view then you likely will experience
limited success and may end up having more and more struggle.
