Imagine that you have $86,400 in your bank account. Not too shabby, eh? You’re doing good for yourself! Now imagine that someone steals $10 from your account, leaving you with $86,390. Would you be angry that $10 is missing and fail to realize the rich amount of money that you still have? Or would you choose to look past the missing $10 and be grateful for what you have left?
This is one of life’s greatest things to consider. See, there are exactly 86,400 seconds in a whole day. And, much like the one who took the $10 from the bank account, there will always be people or incidents that, either intentionally or not, will ruin your day. The question is, are we going to let the little things that happen make our whole day miserable? Or are we going to be like a duck and let the negative things roll off our back?
Life is too precious and short to waste by being miserable over the small things. Instead of looking at the glass as being half-empty, its crucial for our own happiness to always view the glass as being half-full. Only then will you truly be able to live a happy, fulfilling life.
