A glass full of solutions
I want you to picture a small glass of water half filled.
Before you second guess it, this ain’t a half glass, half full cliché.
If you looked at the water in that glass how much fog do you think it could create?
“According to the Bureau of Standards, ‘A dense fog covering seven city blocks, to a depth of 100 feet, is composed of something less than one glass of water.’ That is, all the fog covering seven city blocks, at 100 feet deep could be, if it were gotten all together, held in a single drinking glass. It would not quite fill it. And this could be compared to our worries. If we can see into the future and if we could see our problems in their true light, they wouldn’t tend to blind us to the world, to living itself, but instead could be relegated to their true size and place. And if all the things most people worry about were reduced to their true size, you could probably put them all into a water glass, too.” (Nightingale)
What could you do to reframe a worry you might have to it’s ‘true size’?
What’s a solution that out weighs it?
Put that in the glass instead.
Ps Now you got a glass full of solutions.
