What bests fits you at this moment in time?  If you are more a glass half empty type of person you miss so much if you look at life through the half-empty glass. Taking the negative slant on life leads to a life of negative thinking that never sees the good things that life has to offer.

If we shift your view to the glass half full could you bring more positivity and prosperity into your life?  Take a moment and write down all the things that you feel are wrong with your life. Then, on a different piece of paper, write down all of the blessings you have. For a negative person, this can be hard. Did you wake up in a warm bed this morning?  Was there someone on the other side of the bed? Did you have breakfast? Did you go to a job? In a car? Did you have clean, decent clothes to put on?

Each any every one of these things are blessings and are a positive part of your life. It can be so easy to think about the negative things: I don’t get paid enough, my car is old, and the cereal wasn’t fresh – come on! Half the world would love to have the things you took for granted just this morning!

What do you ever get out of life by looking at the negative aspects of your life? Are you a complainer? Are you a complainer because of your circumstances or do your circumstances make you complain? How much worse could things be? When you really think about your life, aren’t you truly blessed compared to others around the planet?

Try thinking positively as a way of finding happiness and satisfaction in your life. Complaining does nothing except make others around you feel bad, and if that’s your intention, you need to re-think your relationship.
