YESNYOU – Is your glass half full or half empty?

Hello again everyone!

I hope you have already had a look at last week’s post, and have found some interesting things to read in our blog archive. If you have, then by now you will have found out a lot of information about us here at YESNYOU! This week I thought I’d find out a little bit about you.

halffullvsempty“Is the glass half empty or half full?”

Are you familiar with this phrase? Do you think about the world in this way? Does the way you see the glass make any difference to your life?

It’s a philosophical question about your worldview. If you have a positive worldview, then you are probably quite optimistic. If you have a negative worldview, then you’re probably a bit pessimistic.

Proactive people (who like learning new languages, for example) are more likely to be optimists. A positive attitude is an essential component of success, don’t you think?

But does it matter? If your glass is half full or half empty, is there any effect on your life? Research suggests that there is. An American psychologist has found that optimistic people make more money than pessimistic people, which is a good reason to keep a smile on your face!

What if you don’t feel particularly optimistic? Here’s Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love with some advice on how to keep yourself moving forward and looking up.

Reading articles and watching videos about topics that you care about is an excellent way to improve your English.
