Scarcity and abundance

It has been interesting to watch the reactions of people as the 2014 college football season winds down. I heard one coach interviewed whose team did not make the top four list. He was downright cranky in his interview. Another coach who was in a similar position was gracious and complimentary of his team.glass_half_full_empty_1600_clr_5473

The two coaches actually said similar things to say. What was different was their demeanors. One was looking at a glass half empty; the other’s glass was half full. Just for the record, in a life of scarcity there are only a few scenarios where there is enough. In a life of abundance there is gratitude and acknowledgment for what is. There is always more on the horizon. Let me be clear – living a life of abundance is not about settling for second-best. It’s about embracing what is available and being ready to strive for more – because there’s always more available.

How we see life sets the stage for how we respond to the circumstances of life. One coach was cranky. The other coach was gracious. And since they are college instructors, the question that always comes up for me is, “what are you teaching?”   #CoachtoCoach

  1. Saw this sign on a wine store yesterday: “Whether you see your glass as half empty or half full, there’s one thing for sure: you did not pour enough wine in your glass!” Thanks for another great message, Sara!
