The art and craft of Positivity. 'A glass half full or half empty' as a phrase has taken many rounds after it was first uttered by someone not known. No one can say for certain when this phrase was used the first time. Half-full indicates optimism and half-empty pessimism or positivity and negativity. I have a different take. The person considering the glass half empty will try hard for full glass while the one considering the glass half full will remain contented and never will have a full glass and hence a not a fighter. Positive people are not affected by defeats. Or they do not accept defeat. Accepting a defeat may be a sign of weakness. They may not try again and move on to another project or may be satisfied with half-full glass. Negative people accept defeat but will not settle for half-empty glass. Someone said he did 1000 times wrong before he could do it right. Accepting defeat gracefully motivates for trying again. Positivity is an art and a craft. The mastery in these can hide all failures. All one has to do is keep a brave face. Both positive and negative people may go to the bar to lessen the burden of failure but the first will be branded as brave and the second as defeatist and depressed. Negativism is not defeatism, not trying again is. Positivism is not bravery if not accepting defeat. Life is not all bed of roses. It has its ups and downs. We can't change everything for our choice. We have accepted our limits and accept reality. This is not negativism. Getting up early in the morning and taking a vow to be positive, think positive, act positive.... is not positivity. Positivity is navigating your way out of the mess around without harming yourself and others. Positivity should be an instinct and not a cultivated art and craft. What do you say?
