My dear husband has been working on this one mortgage deal (he's a broker) for quite some time.
Today, he found out that there is only one remaining option to get the deal done.
I'm thinking of all the failed attempts...and moaning because there's only one last option and thinking that it's probably not going to work and then where are we getting the money for the bills...yada yada blah blah blah.
No deal = no commission = no money.
Randy, on the other hand is still full of enthusiasm --"That's okay --I can get it done this way --this will still work...etc."
This is one of the reasons I fell in love with him. He rarely gets discouraged and rarely gives up. He always sees the proverbial glass as half full and I always see it as half empty (when it pertains to me). Amazingly, I can counsel anyone under the sun and encourage them to see the glass as half full! I just can't seem to apply that principle to my life. Why am I so pessimistic?
How do you see the glass?
