Many years ago two, a British shoe manufacturing company was exploring a new market place. They decided to send Tim and John to Africa to look for the possibility of expanding their business. The goal of their trip was to investigate this new market, and to report their findings back to headquarters on the potential of the market.
- Tim came back with a rather dismal report, “There’s no potential at all here, because NOBODY wears shoes.”
- John came back with a rather different reply, “There’s massive potential in Africa, because NOBODY wears shoes.”
In the same single situation, there are often many ways to look at the outcome. It’s your choice as to how you interpret any situation, whether you’re looking at it positively with optimism, or negatively with pessimistic approach. Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.
Moral: Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive outlook.
Positive outlook will let you use the ability which you have, and that is awesome.
