Are You a Realist?

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.William Arthur Ward

pessimist or optimist?

How do you view the world? What are your first thoughts when an incident occurs? How can we balance our approach more towards the middle? How can we ‘be here now’ and see things as they are?

seeing things as they are

This quote was a great reminder for me, as I tend always to be an optimist. Such an approach is generally powerful but often keeps me from seeing things as they are! Realists work with actuals and the practical. Balance is key, it’s the ‘middle way’!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM balanced in how I view life events.
