You may already know that it is better to think positively than to have negative thoughts. There are many self-help books available that teach you the benefits of positive thinking, so why are there so many pessimists in the world?
One of the tests of optimism is the popular glass half-full or half-empty scenario; you are shown a glass and asked whether it is half- full or half- empty. Those who guess it is half-full are optimists. Do you see the glass as half-full? If so, congratulations, you are already on the way to living a better, longer and more fulfilling life.
Research has shown that pessimists die younger than optimists. This is a fact. If you consider yourself to be a pessimist, you should try to change your mind set. Pessimists do not enjoy life; they see the bad in everything. This may be because bad things keep happening to them and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like and what we focus on becomes our reality; therefore, if we keep thinking negative thoughts, our lives will become full of negative situations. Optimists see the positive side in every situation, even negative ones. Optimists have hope. They also seem to have a sense of knowing that everything will turn out right in the end – and it usually does! Again, the Law of Attraction brings positive situations to optimists because this is what they expect.
