I was told today that I'm a pessimist. I was shocked since I've never once thought I was anything but an optimist. So I sit myself down and had a heart to heart with myself. Do I expect to fail? Do I not work as hard as I could? Do I always expect a bad outcome? Well.... I think I do sometimes, for instance, on my bowling league I always strive to bowl my average, why not strive to bowl a few pins higher? There are many times when I've reached a goal and just stopped, when I should be striving to reach the next goal. The moral of the story is that I need to spend more time on setting goals, achieving goals and planning for the next goal. Any help or advice on how to do that will be greatly appreciated.
My new mantra: "The glass is always half full."
