Realistically which one are You?    


Ok, so you see the glass half full! It does not stop there! You naturally have a very positive outlook on life, the world and yourself. You are confident and have no trouble dealing with situations head on with confidence. You are a bright and cheerful person with a light heart and a good sense of humour.


Oh! Your glass is half-empty. Nothing seems possible and you just don’t think you can manage. You feel that life has dealt you an unfair hand. Well, it is time to change the way you see yourself and the world. You can start by making small but positive changes.


Oops! You don’t even see the glass, whether it’s half-full or half empty. Life is simply doom and gloom. You need serious attention. You need to bring some positivity into your life – Starting with your self-worth and your self-confidence, you should think in such a way that will bring positive things, situations and people into your life.


If you read all of the above and couldn’t figure out which was you, because you are a little bit of them all.  You are then the realist.  To understand life, people, situations and circumstances in an objective way probably makes you a realist.  Its great to be a realist as life is full of twists and turns and moderation is something that we all strive for to keep the balance and status quo.

20 Ways to be a Realistic Optimist

  1. Learn to believe in yourself
  2. You have a choice: learn to see yourself as a happy and successful person
  3. Get out of your mind anything that is holding you back (talk to someone or Keep a journal).
  4. Don’t let past memories destroy the possibilities of making the future more exciting for you. Learn to forgive
  5. It is never too late to start believing in your purpose in the world, with a dash of passion.
  6. Make choices and decisions without negative emotions attached.
  7. Learn to be emotionally in tune with yourself and others. Emotional strength and emotional resilience are important life tools. Work on your EQ.

  11. Spend time with people who uplift you and feed your soul. Don’t settle for less.
  12. Read a good auto biography, or write one even if its yours.
  13. Spend time in nature, it makes you appreciate your life and what it is made of. Go green!
  14. Incentivise yourself when you have set a goal and accomplished it. Don’t use credit.
  15. Spend quality time with people both younger and older than yourself. You can be child like with both.
  16. Do something special for someone, the feeling itself is uplifting and rewarding. Any random act of kindness will do.
  17. Find someone to mentor and teach them the lessons that you know have worked for you, and the ones that haven’t.
