OPTIMISM VERSUS PESSIMISM
A story of two identical twins; one was absolutely pessimistic. The other was very optimistic. They wanted to do a psychological test on them in order to find out why both of them are entirely different. So, they put the one who was a pessimist in a room full of bright lights and toys. This boy began to cry, so the psychologist went into the room and asked him why are you crying? He said, I am crying because I think somebody will come and steal all my toys. He also said, I don’t have anybody to play with. They put the other twin brother with a shovel beside him. The boy picked up the shovel and began to shovel the manure. The people went to his room and asked him why are you happily shoveling the manure? He said to them, because there must be a horse underneath in the manure. People with an optimistic perspective can make the best out of a bad situation.
