Which glass is full?
This week I saw a T-shirt for sale that took a new approach on the glass is half empty/half full debate.
According to the T-shirt, BOTH the glasses above are full, each totaling 100% capacity of liquid and air, the only difference being the ratio of liquid to air.
Take that perspective from a T-shirt and replace liquid and air with positive and negative attitudes and understand that you get to decide the ratio in your glass. Full up bright and sparkly or just a few drops in the bottom?
ActiveRain isn't much different from the rest of my life. There are some good things and some not so good things. If you attended today's Zoom meeting you got to hear Ben's latest update and the work that is being done to fix the issues and have an improved site.
It's your choice in how you perceive that information.
You can be hopeful that better days ARE coming (and IMO we're already much better off than we were years ago when the curtains slammed shut regularly) and tolerate any workarounds you need to in the interim (and yes, I've used a workaround or two just to make this post). And while I'm waiting I still get the benefit of learning from some great real estate agents, network across the country and have a lot of friends I'd have never found without this site.
Or option 2 is stay focused on what's not right and let it impact your mentality about being here in the Rain.
Bottom line, I don't own this sandbox and I don't set the rules. I have a daily choice to make about where to spend my time and how to spend my time.
How much business?
How much social?
We establish our reputation in the community by how we spend our time and the attitude we demonstrate while we're here.
Is my glass always 100% full of positivity? Nope, I have my moments of frustration too. But never enough to keep me from coming back daily. The gain outweighs the pain.
Until next Tuesday, just Ask An Ambassador if you need help,
