It is sad to admit that I see my glass half empty. This avoids disappointment. Then again that might sabotage me. There were many times I would sign up hoping to get picked to do the job. There were a few times I wanted something so badly that I was so disappointed I was not on the list.
Over the years I believed that if you worked hard enough, something good will come out of it. Alas, it is not always the case. It is not fun when I worked so hard and in the end it gets shot down or it is not good enough. It is not fun working for a company who just takes me for granted. They focus on my mistakes and not my contributions to the company.
So, am I half full or half empty? I am still half empty but I have learned to accept the outcomes as they come. “It is what it is”. There is no changing it. There is no point in being disappointed if I don’t get to be chosen or things didn’t work out. No point of mulling over it. I guess it is what is meant to be. Can’t waste on negative energy so all I could do is keep on going.
One of the best quotes I had discovered is:
“It’s not about whether the glass is half full or half empty, it’s about who is paying for the next round.” – Anonymous
If anyone one wants to buy me a drink or two I would gladly accept.
Is your glass half full or half empty?
